Trip to Rome

Last city recap on my trip to Europe! Did you check out Paris and Barcelona? We went to Rome from Barcelona for a day trip. Rome wasn’t part of our Groupon Getaway deal,Β but Italy was a place I’ve really wanted to go and when you’re already in Europe and the plane ticket is only $50, how can you say no? I’m so glad we ended up going to Rome because it might have been my favorite city we visited. Because we  ...

Even though it was a lot in a little amount of time, I’m glad that I did as much as I did! I may never make it back to Europe and I didn’t need a lot of time to feel like I “explored”, so being able to see a lot  ...

How to Make a Minimalist Wardrobe

A minimalist wardrobe is creating an entire wardrobe out of the essential pieces. I bet your closet is full of items you don’t like, don’t wear, and probably don’t even know it’s there. Streamlining your closet will not only help you get dressed in the morning, but you’ll be able to fully maximize the potential of your closet. When you have less in your closet, you’ll want to invest in the quality of those  ...

What Necklace do you wear with Your Neckline?

This questions is probably in the top 10 most frequently asked. What type of necklace do you wear with your neckline? This is a tough question, because there is no right or wrong answer.

Fireplace Wood Box Makeover

I’m not really sure what this is so I wasn’t sure what to name this post. I *think* it’s a box for wood for the fireplace. We’re not using it forΒ this now, but some extra seating in the corner of the room. It was a pretty dark corner and I used some leftover paint to brighten it up a bit! I started off by painting it just white and then tried to add some brown glaze to match the fireplace mantle. I got a little crazy  ...
