Slowly but surely, I have been updating the home for spring (mostly just changing things around!). This is probably my favorite thing to do. After all, you don’t spend any money when you shop around your home! Currently, I just swapped the floral pillows from my bedroom to the living room (see my bedroom tour here). I’m still looking for the perfect pillows to replace my leopard and gold ones. I’ve been browsing around and these are my current top picks: this black and white, leopard print and floral. I just have been so undecided on which ones to go with!! What do you guys think? I have also been patiently waiting for the first peonies of the season to arrive… still waiting! However, this weekend on my flower run to Wholefoods, I spotted the most gorgeous garden roses. In my opinion, garden roses are just as pretty as peonies and they smell amazing too! For these beautiful flowers, I brought back my blue ginger jar for the arrangement. I think the blue and white jar looks perfect with pink flowers. For the bar cart, I added these pink lemonade bottles from Trader Joe’s (the lemonade is delicious) and together with the Moët…

Follow my blog with Bloglovin It’s a new year, a new you and it it’s time to think about updating that old sofa in your living room! Don’t worry, because I have spent hours researching and looking for the best sofas under $1,000. After all you don’t need to spend a lot to have a stylish sofa! I still use my $499 Erktop sofa and love it! Now, since the sofa is the central piece of furniture in your living room, it really should be a great piece that can stand the test of time. I really like timeless designs (think tufted, english arm roll, etc.) with clean lines. As far as color I prefer to stick with the neutrals (white, grays and beige). This gives you a blank canvas to decorate with pillows and you can change the décor around when you get tired/bored with it without having to change the main and most expensive item. Here are some of my favorites: Erktop Sofa from Ikea- I have had this one for 6 years and still going strong. At $300 you cannot beat the price. The covers are removable and I wash it once a month. Worst case scenario,…

Hello loves! I’m so excited to share Sophia’s Unicorn birthday party with you all!  I can’t believe she is already one year old. Like every mother before me, I’m shocked by how fast the first year went. I think the biggest transformation is to see your baby going from a newborn to a little person walking around and starting to talk! Time flies by in a blink of an eye, what everyone will tell you is the absolutely true. When it came to the theme of the party I was really undecided for a while, at first I thought I wanted a princess theme, then star theme and the list goes on and on, lol! Then finally I saw this unicorn cake on Instagram and I was sold! I love unicorns and how whimsical they are and thought it would be perfect for her first little party. You can see my inspiration board here. For the main sweets table, I did a pastel balloon arch with flowers and a curtain backdrop. For the balloon arch, I used this tape as the base, and added the bigger balloons to it. I then used a low temperature glue gun to glue the…

Welcome lovely friends coming from Tanya’s A Darling Day Dream blog. Hope you are enjoying the tour so far. Spring is around the corner and I couldn’t be more excited. Living on the east coast, our winter is no joke! I’m so ready to see the trees turn green again and this gloomy weather to go away. This means is also time to refresh your decor and bring those happy bright tones in. As always, I don’t believe you need to spend a lot to update your space. A couple of new pillows, a fluffy throw, some candles and flowers it’s all you need to bring your bedroom back to life. I went with this blush Pom Pom throw and this sheepskin pillow from Anne Selke, and these beautiful floral water color pillows to complete my bedroom update. Only a few touches and my bedroom is ready for spring and it already feels so much brighter in here! Here are some other things that you can do to get your bedroom spring ready: 1. Declutter: this is something I try to do often, cleaning my closet, donating items I no longer use or toys Sophia doesn’t play with anymore. This…

Good morning dolls! March is already here and I have been super busy planning Sophia’s birthday party. However, I wanted to share some of my late findings and some of the items I got from the Shopbop sale (today is the last day to shop, up to 25% off!). I picked up this pretty pink lace dress for Sophia’s birthday, isn’t it lovely? I also got this shampoo from the new Kristin Ess collection at Target which I absolutely love (I may or may not have gotten the mascara and volumizer mousse too!). It’s such a great line!  All the products are great and are at a very good price. While I was at Target I also checked out the new Baubeblar collection and is super cute,  love this tassel earrings. I found this new pink letter board and is so adorable I might have to buy it too (hubby might not like that! Lol). From the Shopbop sale, I always look for Fashion books, accessories and jeans. I finally got this pair of Levis (they are low on sizes :() and this super cute LBD. They also have the best selection of pool party floats!!! Favorite Dresses Favorite Accessories Favorites…
