Little changes around the house...


Lately I have been doing little odd and ends around the house and thought I would share what  I have been up too.


 I have been wanting a brass lamp on this table in the living room, and found one for $30 at Home Goods!


I have been wanting one of these little tables for our back patio too, but every time I see one they are $100 or more... so I snagged this one a couple days ago at Target on clearance for $35. Not sure If I will keep it blue or not  but for now it works. If I was really cool I would of had put some cute flowers on top of it...mom issues..lol



 I also decided we needed some snazzy doormats! I love the shape of these and love how they have jazzed up my out door space! I put one on the back patio too. Ikea $15 each


 Our garage door was looking pretty rough on the outside and it had been driving me nuts, so last week I got to painting and just kept going...


So much better now! I feel like it has made the garage look a little bit nicer now and we are loving the black! Eleven years of wear and tear now refreshed! Even the kids have said something about it..they notice everything!


 I was  also able to get these sweet little bookends from a consignment shop in Napa!


 We love our entertainment system.. added a lot of storage for us! From Ikea


I took this jar I have not been using and decided that all my little samples that have been sitting in a drawer from my Birtchbox needed to go somewhere. So I thought it would be cute to put them in this and have it for girlfriends when they come over. We dont have a guest bathroom so I have put it in the corner on the floor in our powder bathroom. I put it on the back of the toilet,but it is a large jar, and I feel like it is way too big and worrying too that some one will knock it off.


here is a pick.. not a great one , but you get the point. I like it! It is pretty cute in there! Oh and the plans that I have for my little powder bathroom! Cant wait to get that going!

Summer stripes with bows




      Dress is Joa (Shop Bop)
         Stella&Dot bag
        Halogen heels (Nordstoms)

Hi girls! I have to say that this is my favorite outfit of the summer! I was pretty thrilled to find this at a reasonable price for all my shindig outings this summer! I had been looking for a skirt like this, but really was not coming up with anything till I stumbled across this. I just love the pockets too! Dresses with pockets ARE THE BEST! And then in some kind of crazy way I happen to walk right into Nordys and found these white heels. I can't tell you how long I have been looking for  a pair of white heels.. You know the kind where you will never need another pair really again until you wear these out ... I mean really not too high, bows, and studs...sooo cute! I couldn't pay for them fast enough. 
Hope you love!
Have a wonderful week!

Monday manicure: Floss Gloss



Floss Gloss: Fast Lane

 Hi Ladies! I have been wanting to show you this newer line of polish that is just beautiful! This color is a vibrant orange red shade that I swear gets brighter the longer you wear it! I would say it's probably more on the neon side too. It's also 5 free so it does have fewer chemicals in it than normal polishes. They also seem to dry more matte than shiny. But that's no biggie when you put top coat on. We have been trying these out at work and so far they have been a hit! Great colors!
I highly suggest this one if you are looking for a really bright, neon looking beautiful color! Awesome for summer!
I also needed to start a new facebook page... (long story) so if you were following me I just thought I would mention that:)
