DIY beaded plant hanger

06.14.17

i loooove a little pop of greenery in a bathroom, as soon as the renovation was done i realized what a huge visual difference a plant in the corner would make when you walk by. i looked online for a cute planter but ultimately realized i could make something in a few minutes that would be better and cheaper and i totally did!  Read More

since redoing the bathroom and furnishing the nursery, i’ve been on the hunt for cute and affordable little end tables or stools and realized i can never not think of a spot i need one for. it’s a legit problem. i wanted one for next to the bathtub, but also just decided i need one for next to the rocker in the nursery and how do i not have one next to the sofa?! so i obsessed for a bit and found lots of cute options, all under $150!  Read More

learning new skills

05.30.17

with my maternity leave underway and just doing less day to day in general till the babe arrives, i’ve been twiddling my thumbs a little looking for activities that don’t require a lot of energy. gid would be too jealous for me to binge watch a “good” show without him, so that’s kind of out as well. i’m totally one of those people who loves doing nothing, but gets very antsy doing nothing real fast — so i’ve been looking to do some creative things with my free time, and i discovered that skillshare is kind of perfect for that.

modern baby registry

05.16.17

while i’m not deeming myself an expert since i have zero babies so far, i have done a lot of research on things i’d need and wouldn’t need, and while this list might not be the most minimal, i did try to keep our registry concise, and also as attractive as possible. i know in the long run, we won’t be able to keep everything baby related aesthetically pleasing, but at this point i can try.

starting your registry from scratch seems so overwhelming, because i too had no idea where to start — so looking at other peoples essentials and talking to moms made it a lot easier. if you’re in the same boat and having trouble even trying to begin working on your registry, hopefully this cohesive list will help.  Read More

i wasn’t sure if i really wanted maternity photos taken or not — but i read and heard a lot of people say that it was a nice memory to look back on later and to just do it — and it turns out i’m glad we did. years from now we can look back on these and remember being young and cute and non parents.

it’s definitely my favorite room in the house, it’s so bright and warm and brings us so much happiness.
