Vegas Bachelorette

This past weekend I jetted off to Vegas for one of my friend's bachelorette parties! There were a total of 16 (!!) girls that went and we had a fabulous time. We went to the Britney concert, had a Tiger Woods & Mark Cuban sighting, danced to both Calvin Harris and Tiesto and most importantly celebrated the bride-to-be!!
 
 
This fringe kimono over my bikini was totally out of my comfort zone (hence the XL slushie!), but it ended being super fun for the pool party!


We all wore matching shirts to Britney!
 
Such a great trip and now I'm counting down the days to the wedding!! XO

One Room Challenge: The Reveal

Well the day has finally come, the One Room Challenge reveal! The past week I was working like crazy to finish up the last minute DIY projects I had on my list. Nothing like a pending deadline to put the pressure on!


This is what our master looked like from the weekend we moved in:
 
 And now:


I am loving the outcome! The Eastlake headboard really is such a statement and honestly I'm a bit surprised I was able to make it look good. I think the bedding really tied it all together and I am so happy I pulled the trigger on it.


The little elephant ring holder from High Street Market on my side of the bed is one of my favorite new additions!




 I am also obsessed with that little navy tassel on the nightstand.  
 
 
Monogrammed pillows are always a must!
 

This was the no-sew skirt I was able to DIY for the seagrass console which holds the TV and our linens. So obviously it had to stay but it didn't really go with the rest of the room. I used the same fabric as the bed skirt and also mirrored the design of it. 
 

 Mr. Kitty loves the new room too!


There was a little open wall space near the closet which was perfect for our framed wedding invitation and wedding map. 


 The last DIY project I did was replace the sconce shades. The previous ones were glass and extremely outdated. I found a shade kit at Hobby Lobby and used the same fabric as the bed skirt/console skirt to cover them.

 
 Well that is it! We are all thrilled with the final result and are looking forward to enjoying our new master bedroom for many years to come. Thank you all for following along on this journey with me!

Peony Soap

I'm all for making the mundane little tasks of life a little more fun.. So I like to indulge in pretty smelling dish soap! It makes doing the dishes a little more bearable. This isn't usually worthy of a post, but I had to share that my usual favorite Mrs. Meyer's has come out with a limited edition peony scent just in time for spring!


 I found mine on an endcap at Target, but it's also available online if you can't find it in store. Happy spring cleaning!

What I'm Loving Wednesday

Happy Wednesday! It feels good to be halfway through the week. I wanted to share a few things I've been loving lately!
 
First up, is this pagoda monogram from Pottery Barn kids. I've been all about the chinoiserie lately and this would be perfect for a little gallery wall I'm working on.

Our first anniversary is coming up soon and I've been racking my brain for a paper gift. (Any ideas?! Please share!) I've always wanted a silhouette done of our future kids (as I have one of me as a child!) and while we don't have any yet, I thought it might be fun to do one of our cat (since we are obsessed and all). It would also go in the previously mentioned hallway gallery wall. I found an Etsy seller who specializes in pets (dogs too!) and I'm extremely excited about it!

I had my eye on the Lilly for Target flip flops but when I saw them in person I thought the pattern on the footbed might wear off too quickly so I passed on them. I was browsing the new Lilly summer line a few days ago and they released a version which is exactly what I was looking for! They are the "Pool Flip-Flops" and I think they will be perfect for the pool and beach this summer.

Have you found any favorites this week?! XO

Rose Garden

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. Ours was pretty low-key, work has been crazy busy and I needed a little down time.
 
In other news, we are loving our new neighborhood! I love that we are in walking distance to a few of our favorite restaurants as well as one of the nicest parks in the city. After work last week, we walked to the rose garden in the park and on the weekends they have the best farmers market!
 

The roses are in bloom now!



 
Hope you all have a great week! XO

One Room Challenge: Week 4

Happy Thursday! You know what that means, I am linking up with the One Room Challenge. See my progress: Week One, Week Two, Week Three.

To be honest, I haven't made much progress in the room for week 4- it's been pretty busy over here work wise. But I did play around with the room planner function on the Pottery Barn website and I created this so you could visualize the room set up.  

Also, I finally decided on a duvet after much thought and deliberation. I went with the more pricey one I loved instead of the more practical choices and I know I will be happier in the long run. Here is the pattern:
I was looking for a chinoiserie pattern and this one is perfect. I think the dark color makes it a little more masculine so the husband is happy too.
 
My do-to list:
-New sconce shades
-New bedding 
-Purchase bed risers
-New nightstands (I think we are being gifted some as well)
-Make a skirted console to hide the TV stand
-Maybe curtains of some sort if I get up the courage, new curtains
-Find finials

Now, I am off to check up on everyone else!
