I planned on doing this before Cooper came, but since he surprised us, it threw me off a little!!!
When I found out I was pregnant I knew either way I wanted baby’s nursery to be pretty neutral, then when I found out my little lovie was a boy, I decided I wanted to go with a sweet little baby animals theme. (I always tell Ryan he’s going to become a veterinarian and love animals lolll basically, just because I love animals! Ryan laughs and thinks I’m crazy!)
Anyway, baby animals theme, neutral colors and I wanted the room very simple, light & bright!
I also knew I didn’t have/or want to spend tons of money on the room because he’ll grow out of all that before we even know it! The most expensive thing in his room is probably the glider that was from pottery barn! I am a big fan & believer of refinishing furniture to give it a whole new look and feel, so we had my old dresser repainted white and gray to match the feel of baby’s room. I reused the mirror from my bedroom at my old house and sconces as well. Everything else is really reasonably priced and I’m tagging it all in the slider below!

Got lots of compliments about this drinking glasses from my story yesterday so I’m sharing with y’all today on here for these & similar cups! I love these! They actually remind me of glasses my moms mom had when I was little, I can’t remember if they were glasses or little bowls that she’d put ice cream in but I definitely love the cups! She even have plates still that are super cute!

Incase your wondering who took the cookie from the apothecary jar, it was me 🍪 😜 anyone else have apothecary jars all over their house? It’s my favorite way to fill up some empty space! they are perfect for the kitchen, bathroom or even some built ins! I’m sure you can guess what my favorite thing to put in them in the kitchen is – this girls weakness is a good cookie! linking a bunch of affordable sets here for y’all (most come in sets of 3) and I thought it would be fun to tell you guys what I normally fill mine with!
Most of the time in the kitchen I round stack my big jar with Oreos, and put candy or something with the season in the smaller one. In the bathroom I fill them with bath salts, bath bombs, soaps & natural bath sponges! I change out my Oreos for a lighter cookie, the oatmeal feels more summery, I know that sounds crazy… I kinda am!
The things you fill them with are mostly for show, so they don’t have to be expensive! Honestly, I have to keep peoples hands out of the jar because my Oreos have been in there for like 4 months lol!!! I have to tell people omg those are for show don’t eat them!!! Haha! Because of that, I normally buy the cheaper cookies, no ones really eating them!
Decorating my table for holidays is one of my favorite things to do! Sharing this years look with you guys and a few other cute Easter decorations! Everything is on sale right now so grab it while you can!! Some of my stuff is on prime so it will definitely get to you before Easter!

p.s. – I have used these little wreaths on my plates for years, so they are something you can use time and time again!
I’m pressed for time, so just linking everything in the sliders below!

Let me know if y’all have anything I can help y’all with!
We recently changed out a bunch of light fixtures in our house & it got me thinking about how much something so little as a light fixture can totally change a rooms vibe/feel! It can make it more elegant, more relaxed, more boohoo, more whatever your going for!
When I moved in with Ryan, his house had a very industrial farm house feel, if you’ll just go with that! He did an absolutely fabulous job at decorating/styling his house, so of course changing things up are by no means a necessity. I remember the first time my friends came over for a crawfish boil & they were like “oh chels you won’t have to do anything to this house if you move in” of course I was like yalll shhhhh your going to embarrass me! Pahaha! Anyway, even though the house doesn’t need any changes -we both are into redoing things (which makes for a problem pahahaha) and since I’ve moved in the house has taken a more French farmhouse vibe!
I was amazed at how changing the light fixtures in the bathroom gave it a completely different look, and same thing in our kitchen above the island!! Buying 4 lights cost me about $500 and to me that’s a pretty good deal on lights + a room vibe change!
here’s a before (picture on right) and after (picture on left) of the bathroom light fixture. It sounds crazy but the lantern pendant gives a more open feel to the bathroom and definitely gives it a more Frenchy feel!
Linking some new fixtures we got below that I found for amazing prices! And then in the slider below I’ll add some that I love/think we’re good finds!
