Happy Friday Eve! I don't know about you but this week has been dragging and I'm ready for the weekend! I've been on a non-official shopping ban since the holidays. When I shop, my rule is that whatever I buy has to go with multiple pieces in my closet. I really haven't seen anything that I needed or had to have until now. With the arrival of spring, I was excited to add a few key pieces to my wardrobe. Here's what I got!

What to Know Before Starting a Blog


Hi everyone! Did you have a good weekend? One of my besties came over and helped me purge and organize my closet and other than that, I did lots of lounging and it felt great! I'm excited today to be joining some of my favorite bloggers for a six week blog hop series on blogging tips. The series will be on Tuesdays ending on May 31st. You can hop from blog to blog starting from the link at the end of my post. 

The first prompt of our series is: What is one tip you have for anyone that may be thinking about starting a blog -- something you wish someone had told you before you started?

Spring has arrived and with the warmer weather, its time to swap out your denim for a pair of printed pants! Don't shy away from this fun trend. You can find options out there from subtle to bold to suit your style. The best part is they can be dressed up or down and no matter how you style them, they definitely will make your outfit unique! 

Sephora VIB Haul


Last week Sephora had their spring VIB sale where VIB members got 15% off everything. I've had my eye on a few new products (like the Kiko cosmetics line) and I made sure I stocked up on my favorites too! My package was delivered over the weekend and here's what I got...

Before & After Spring Room Makeovers


I have a thing about rearranging furniture. Our old home was on the smaller side so it wasn't always easy, but in our rent home, we have so much space. I'm happy to be able to switch things up every season! Both our living and family rooms needed a refresh for spring and with limited dollars in the budget, I had to find inspiration from what we already had. I've always thought that our cowhide rug was better suited for the family room so instead of just moving the rugs, I decided to flip flop the furniture too.
