Home Decor | Non stop shopping!

home decor | bits & pieces of what I've been buying lately.

oh, heyyy, lovelies!
I have been non stop everyday shopping my little butt off to start decorating the house since all the necessities are already taken care of. Now, for the fun part. Wall art, shiny lamps, scented candles, decorative pillows & the list goes on and on. I know this is going to be a long process and I feel like the "finished product" will never quite be done. I'm loving every second and dressing up our home and making it our peaceful get a way from the world. I think I will always always always want to add one more thing in one more room, or one more lamp, or one more art piece, or one more decorative pillow. This whole process alone makes me speechless. Never in a million years would I have thought I would be doing this with my love. I've been feeling very grateful these past couple of days and realizing how much I truly love this life and the person at my side.

The shopping process is a bit harder than I thought - I'm on the hunt for the PERFECT items that WOW me over! I thought, ohhh this will be easy, NOT. I take my time when I'm shopping on normal days just for fun BUT now that it's for our house I take even LONGER at stores now because, well, I want it to stand out, I want it to be "that is SO me!" or "he'll love that" or "that would look amazing on this wall!" So far, I'm going pretty good with all the shopping I've been doing. It's getting easier now that I'm already putting things up and then I get inspired for more decorations. I'm taking pictures before/after and pictures of items I'm buying because I'm planning on printing out all the "home decor/shopping bags" to keep as memories in an album (of course I would, lol) The boyfriend has gave me that more lovely job ever - "babe, make the house beautiful" everything I buy I run home like a little hoping he will love it; & so far he has loved everything! *jumps for joy*

The photo above with the flowers was taken at the lovely Target. I swear I was there in the aisle for at least 45 mins. I was designing my own (huge) flower arrangement in one of those large decorative vases. It was fun being able to make your own instead of just buying one at store.

I found this adorable coffee mug at Tjmaxx for only $3! I'm in love with always finding a good BARGAIN! Tjmaxx is one of my top stores because you never know what you will find there. I always find all my 'treasures' there!!

Thift Store Treasures ! (photo above)

I recently went to our thrift store to find some hidden treasures! I already knew what I was on the hunt for (photo frames, of course) & anything else that caught my eye. Well, I got lucky that day and scored tons of vintage looking photo frames & even some other goodies that I will go in more detail about in another blog! All the frames that I purchased were either $.99 or $1.99 how amazing is that ? & then you get to dress it up with any color of spray paint of your choice! I love that idea.

this is how my back seat looked like a couple of days ago.. *happy smile*

I have a million ideas and they are all slowly coming alive! I'm loving all these moments and saving and taking pictures of everything and anything because I want to print all these photos & make a separate album to always remember the start of this beautiful journey with my love.

Hope you all enjoyed this post, more pics coming soon :)

Organization | Bobby pins & hair ties.

hey lovelies,
Are you girls like ME where I am CONSTANTLY on look out for my bobby pins/hair ties? I always feel I buy so many & they always disappear. I actually go looking around the floor/rug for bobby pins all over the house! Since this is a fresh start in our new house I have decided to try & keep ALL my things VERY organized, so organized that I have become OBSESSED w/ organization! Not that it's a horrible thing..1.) it relaxes me 2.) I will always know where items are 3.) NEVER MESSY 4.) Perfect feeling. So I was on a hunt for an organizer that I'll be able to keep the two things I always always misplace!

I found this ADORABLE clear & very small organizer at the beautiful, Target.....

I thought it was absolutely perfect & went ahead and purchased a few more bobby pins & hair ties since I won't me misplacing them now! *fingers crossed*

The cost for the organizer was only $9.99 ! Hello, bargain! I found this item in the aisle with all the bathroom items, shower curtains, bathroom rugs etc.
I love that it's clear, my favorite. I keep it near my sink and it fits perfect in the corner. It makes me want to keep them all neat in there so hopefully I won't be misplacing them anymore.

Here's how it looks after with all the bobby pins/ hair ties in it. I decided to keep all the bobby pins on top since I use those a lot more through out the day since I like to do the "messy bun" a lot and they are easy to grab. So far, loving it !

Hope you girls enjoyed this mini post, I wanted to show you this quick and easy way to keep your small bathroom items organized. I'm also thinking about going back to get another one to store cotton balls/Q-tips :)

The end.

We finally got the keys to our house!!!

I'm finally back!
& so much has happened! August 8th is a day I will never forget. WE FINALLY GOT THE KEYS TO OUR BEAUTIFUL HOUSE ! August 9th we moved in & I feel like someone should pinch me because it feels like a dream! I couldn't believe it had all finally happened, life feels more complete. The first day in was a rush. Walking in to a beautiful blank canvas with my mind consumed of home decor ideas made me have butterflies in my stomach. I was on cloud 9 the entire day, in that very moment life was completely perfect..I was about to experience this adventure with the love of my life that I also consider a best friend. We were both ecstatic the entire day.. walking around, gathering ideas, realizing this is something we have both wanted so much! We've been here for a 1 week & 6 days and it still feels like the very 1st time we woke up in this house. I'm head over heels in love with it. It's so "us" every room has a different color of paint which I absolutely adore! Every room will have their very own theme. We have been running around all over town doing errands & getting all the necessities out of the way & now the FUN begins - HOME DECOR SHOPPING which I've been doing PLENTY of ! My mind is full of tons of ideas I don't even know where to start ! I'm dying to see the final product..especially in my dressing room/office room I have all to myself ! I have taken before/after photos already, of course! & I will definitely be posting up some bits & pieces of little projects we are working on! In this moment of my life I am so happy. I can't even picture life with anyone else at my side. It feels pretty good. I think this huge move and experience has made us fall even more in love. I'm going to cherish every single second of this huge blessing! So yes, that's all that has happened in the past 2 weeks since I haven't blogged in what seemed like a whole month! We just got internet a couple of days ago! So get ready for lots of more blog posts! Sneak peeks of home decor ideas, inspirations and shopping hauls ! Hope all you lovely ladies are having a fantastic week!
