  • Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 – The best items & deals!

    I’m going to be honest – I’m not a huge Nordstrom shopper. It’s not that I don’t like it (I do!) I just don’t always have it as a go to if I need clothes. I love love love it for gifts and when I’m going to invest in a designer piece, I do shop there because their return policy is the best there is! Maybe it’s just quarantine, but I feel like I need clothes!! I have been excited about this sale and I went through all 50+ pages of the women’s section to put together my wish list!!

  • Girls Room Idea | Savannah’s Girls Room Sources

    Whether we know it or not, our kids are always watching us. I learned this the hard way when I walked in on my girls with paint brushes in their hand about to paint over the wallpaper! They wanted to update their space and took it upon themselves to pick a color from the garage. We were minutes away from a total disaster. I was telling Mallory about this and she had the great idea to have them take our online decorating course, Classy Clutter Decorating Academy before they picked out anything for their room! So, that was the deal. They had to take CCDA before they could decorate their room. Here was their room before we redecorated! You can see the full room reveal here! Ready for the final reveal??

This post may contain affiliate links in which I will receive a small commission for purchases made with my link. Lately, I’ve felt a little bored at my existing wardrobe. Blame quarantine, but I have been ready for some new pieces!

How is the fit and quality? Guys, I’m SUPER impressed! Everything is SO soft and comfy! Perfect for the day to day but I feel very put together. What is the return policy?

  • My NEW windows from Cougar Windows and Doors!

    This post is sponsored by Cougar Windows and Doors. As always, all opinions are my own. The one universal trick to enhancing any space is…. NATURAL LIGHT! Don’t get me wrong, I know that it isn’t always easy to come by. If you don’t have windows, it’s hard for the light to reach every inch of your home. In my opinion, a light and bright space elevates any design which is why I have tried to design to maximize light! These french doors were here when we bought the home and it was one of things I loved most when we did our first walk through. I knew these babies would be here to stay! Wondering about the stairs? Yeah….they actually lead NOWHERE and this is why... BEFORE: AFTER: SILVER | BLUSH | BLUE vintage sofa | light | acrylic leg sofa | rug Cougar Windows & Doors to the rescue! The wall space above the doors in pretty large which makes these doors appear smaller than they actually are in real life. When Cougar Windows and Doors reached out…

  • Coop Pillow Review | Best Sleeping Pillows

    I was making my bed a few weeks ago and as I put new pillow covers on, I realized that my pillows were just…..old. A little lumpy. A little more yellow than I remember (so gross, I know!) The truth is, I don’t think I have bought new pillows for my bed in quite some time. I did a little research and the experts say you should replace your sleeping pillows every 1-2 years. Glad I know that now haha! In the last few years, we have completely stepped up our sleeping game! Sleeping Necessities This weighted blanket is just everything I wanted in a weighted blanket. I’ve tried SEVERAL and it’s the best one out there. Trust me! And of course, we have used Beddy’s in our bedroom for years and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. The minky lining is SO unbelievably soft and having that tight fit makes the bed looks amazing as it feels! We have the color “Love at First White” in our room! Questions about Beddy’s? I did a full review on this…

  • When Mallory Turned a Wet Bar Into a Pantry | Pantry Reveal!

    This post is sponsored by Elkay. As always, all opinions are our own. Our classic colonial home came with a lot of quirks. Some I love, and some just had to change. Did you know that our pantry used to be a bar haha? This is funny because we don’t drink and have zero use for an in-home bar setup. There was essentially no pantry space and with a large family, we need all of the storage we can get! Do you see that room to the left? Yeah, that was the family room that is now my kitchen! You can see the full reveal here. We painted the cabinets, replaced the countertops and the bar prep sink, and closed the opening in the wall to create an entirely new space that functions for our family. We love it SO much! Ready for the final reveal? When we converted this bar area into a pantry, I decided to keep the bar prep sink and my goodness, I’m SO glad I did!! Having this stunning prep sink in the pantry is…

Shower Curtain Countertop Paint Countertop Cleaner This is…..a little hard to share!! This what we refer to as the “kids bathroom” because my four kids share this space.

What the heck happened?! Okay so you know that panic when company is about to come over?!

And right after it was done, it looked amazing! But is slowly chipped over the last two years and until it looked like this! Yikes. Didn’t you paint your other bathroom? I have…

  • Road Trip Tips: How to Actually Enjoy Your Car Ride with Kids!

    We are headed up this week to Telluride, Colorado with my entire extended family which means one thing: ROAD TRIP! I’m so excited to share my favorite road trip tips with you! Did you know I come from a family of 6 kids? We are all so close and get together as often as we can. This trip is something I’ve looked forward to for so long and I’m glad that it’s finally here (and that we can actually go!) From Phoenix to Telluride is about an 7.5-8 hour drive. With four kids in the car, this is something I used to dread. My kids are a little bit older now and I’ve gotten a little wiser about how to make the trip easier on everyone. Before we dive in, trust me when I say you need these packing cubes for any upcoming trips! I can organize my all of my kids’ outfits per day and it makes packing and unpacking a breeze!

  • Cafe Appliances Review: Our thoughts after 2 years!

    We are seeing Cafe Appliances on every design blog these days and I’m here to tell you – it is for good reason! You’re probably here hoping that this stunning line of appliances is too good to be true so you can stop thinking about them! Sorry I’m not sorry – these appliances are AMAZING. They as functional and luxurious as they are beautiful and I am so happy to have them in my kitchen! I have had the entire suite – the fridge, dishwasher, and range – for two years now and I’m so excited to finally share my review! Why we chose Cafe Appliances Remember when my kitchen flooded right before Thanksgiving? Yeah, that was fun. It is also the reason we needed all new kitchen appliances. We decided to change the layout of our kitchen and our previous appliances didn’t match or fit the space. See the FULL kitchen remodel here! I knew when we were doing our kitchen that I wanted white appliances. I hadn’t done a ton of appliance shopping before this time, so I…

  • Our Review: Living Scriptures Streaming Service

    I don’t know about you, but screen time is something that is discussed OFTEN at my house. I think my kids say “Can I watch a show?” about 5 times per day. And the truth is, when we are just hanging out at home and it’s 110 degrees outside, I totally understand their desire to relax. The problem is really that I’m just not comfortable handing over the remote. Of course, I’m in and out of the room working and tending to other kids, but if I’m not sitting next to them and making sure what they are watching is appropriate, it worries me what they may stumble upon! Before we dive in, doesn’t the TV in this photo look like art?! It’s my favorite thing ever. We are absolutely obsessed with our Samsung The Frame TV! We wrote a full review on it here! Samsung Frame TV Review Why we signed up for Living Scriptures I have to admit, there have been times where my kids have started out watching a wholesome YouTube video, and minutes later, it is…
