Phone Snap Roundup

I finally found someone that can do my lashes and she is actually reasonable and her work is really  sooooo good. Imperial Luxe LLC is the truth. These are my before and after pictures from my first appointment.

A couple weeks ago I wanted some crab legs and decided to get some from the grocery store. Let’s just say they were bomb.com

Took my mini me  back to school shopping, it still amazes me how much she has grown. I love when we spend time together – make me want a daughter – one day!

As the world knows South Carolina – Columbia to be an exact was a hot spot to see the solar eclipse. This was the only photo that I was able to take. It was pretty cool to see and experience. It was a little scary when the animals and the  bugs started going crazy once it got dark.

Let’s just say that I won’t be cooking any bacon in the oven anytime soon. It looks worse than it really is.

A couple Saturdays ago – as you know I celebrated my birthday – these were some shots from it. So thankful for all the text, emails, comments and phone calls. I felt so loved and appreciated. And yes I was extra and had a filter for my birthday!

This past weekend my college room mate and fellow Virgo sister celebrated her birthday – it was so much fun and I was happy to see her because it’s been a while since we’ve hung out together. It brought back so many memories of the good ol’ days in college! I love this black dress I wore – forever21 – great to have in the closet for unexpected nights or even when you want something classy, but fun!

Home | Spring Cleaning

img_0318

Spring is here which means it is time to get the duster out, declutter the house and buy all the hydrangeas.

When I say declutter, I don’t mean move it from one location to another – it’s when you actually go through it and decide if it is essential, if it can be donated or sold. I have a hard time with this especially with clothes because I’ll say to myself “oh I can wear that later – if i loose weight” but not this go round.

I consider myself a clean person (I use to have a routine of cleaning on Thursdays after work before Grey’s came on) anyway, but when spring time rolls around I want to have everything fresh and clean.  These are a few things that I do around the house to get ready for spring and these are also some of my cleaning habits that I have.

All Over:

  • Clean and wipe down baseboards
  • Wipe down blinds
  • Wipe down and dust lighting and ceiling fans
  • Throw out junk mail and stacks of unneeded papers
  • Vacuum furniture

Kitchen:

  • Deep clean microwave, oven and dishwasher
  • Deep clean inside of the fridge and throw away unused / old items
  • Clean out and organize pantry (cabinets)

Bedrooms:

  • Rotate / flip mattresses
  • Wash all bedding and duvets
    • Typically change out bedding colors for the spring/summer months
  • Go through closet and create donate / throw away piles of unused clothing
    • Organize what I’m keeping by color
  • Dust everything

Bathrooms:

  • Clean out makeup and medicine cabinets (throw away responsibly)
    • Deep clean brushes and wipe out containers
  • Wash all bathmats or get new ones
  • Deep clean shower and tub
  • Clean out drains and faucets
    • Baking soda, vinegar and hot water — best thing ever to clean drains
  • Deep clean grout

I’m not super woman so all of the cleaning won’t happen all in one day it typically happens over the span of two days – because I do get side tracked easily (gift and a curse).

Once I’ve cleaned everything I like to light candles or put in new plug ins and fresh flowers (hydrangeas)  to brighten the place up.

New Year, New Goals | Spirtually

The final thing that I’m working on for 2017 is expanding my faith. Growing up I went to church every other Sunday, summer revivals, church meetings, programs – whatever the church was having I was at, due to the fact that my mom was church secretary for 30+ years. The sad part is that I know the bible but I don’t know it the way that I should know it – for someone that was at church as often as I was.

Home Decor Inspiration | Khole + Kourtney Kardashian Home Photos

Home Decor has always been something I’ve been interested in, from the time I worked in upscale home decor store in San Diego. I was interested and inspired that I would  go to open house showings on Sundays just to see how others decorate their home. Following a few house of driving around to open houses I would come back home to clean, rearrange furniture, online shop for new stuff. The passion for home decor hasn’t left — just check my pinterest page. My current thing is Country chic with modern twist. To get the full details you’ll have to check out my pinterest page.

So when  I saw my timeline flooded with photos from Kourtney & Khole’s home in the Architectural Digest, I was over the moon. So here are few of my favorite photo’s that have inspired me for our current place and even idea for a place we’ll purchase in the future. If I had their budget I’d probably have the exact same bathroom they have, but since I don’t I can dream and “ball” on a budget.
