Clean Lines

I went on a major cleaning spree this past week. Organizing and de-cluttering my entire apartment and have found myself drawn to clean lines. This handbag and this wine rack are two finds this week that demonstrate just that. The wine rack is just $16.99!

Pillow Party

My favorite way to brighten up my house is to change-up the throw pillows. So simple, yet a real difference maker. I made a trip to H&M this weekend with my mom and scooped up several summer styles. If you are ever in New Orleans, I highly recommend checking out the home section of H&M, lots of fun, inexpensive items for your home. You can shop online too! The pillow covers start at just $5.95!

Take Me Home

To Zara Home that is. I checked out Zara Home awhile back and to be honest it fell off my radar. Today I stumbled upon their new collections and lets just say I spent way too much time browsing all the goodies on their site. I love the blues and whites, and all the options they have. Majority of the items are under $100 too! How perfect does that bed look?! In the market for the little ones? They have a wonderful kids home section as well!

I have a desk in my bedroom that serves many purposes I use it as a vanity, a dresser, makeup storage and occasionally as a desk. The one I have now has seen much better days, in fact I’ve had it since 2005, almost 10 years! Which is pretty good for an inexpensive Target find! I’m on the hunt for a new one and love the looks of these inspiration images. You can also shop a few of my most recent desk finds below.

I came across artist Teil Duncan a while back and immediately fell in love with her work. I had planned on sharing some of her work on the blog, and yesterday The Glitter Guide did an amazing feature on her. While I don’t own any of her paintings, I do have a print, and plan on getting my second print soon. You have to act quick, both her paintings and prints go fast. Her beach scenes are such a unique take on my happy place.

Spring Edit

This week has been a crazy one; I’ve blogged less than I wanted to, my house is a mess, my laundry is a mile high and my closets seem to be bursting at the seams. I don’t have much planned this weekend and I’m taking full advantage and going to do some major spring cleaning and edit my packed closet. Out with the old and poor fitting, and making room for the new.


Love these helpful tips and tricks to get organized for spring!

keep warm

I have a few throw blankets around my house, which very rarely get used. However for over a week now I have been without heat in half of my apartment. To say its been chilly is an understatement. Every night I round-up my throw blankets and welcome the added warmth. As of today my heat has finally been fixed, but I may just continue to use these throws more regularly.

house dreams

My apartment doesn’t really have much room for new additions or improvements {it’s a small rental after all}, but I can say this ladies-only bungalow, featured on Domaine, is what house dreams are made of. I’m booking marking these photos, with hopes of a future space to use this inspiration. From the yellow lamps, to fuzzy bedroom benches and the clean feel of it all, I love it! And of course the dog too!
