Friday Favorites {Tanks & Towels!}

Hey Beauts! Happy Friday! The weather is gorgeous here today and it has been for the past week. I've been busy soaking up every second! We opened the pool this week and I'm anxious to get in it for the first time this year. We are SO ready for Summer. This week I tried to get back into the swing of Instagram and my blog after being burned out of 2 major home renovations that I can't wait to share with you guys soon. Sometimes we just need to take a step back and get back in touch with ourselves. It was nice to take a break but in the end I missed you guys! I'm so thankful for you!

So anyway, The week was busy, which is how I like it for productivity and it helps get my creative vibes flowing again. Know what I'm saying? We're wrapping up lots of end of school things, planning to head to Disney in less than 2 weeks, and preparing Sav to start kindergarten in the fall. Which I am SO not ready for by the way!

So anyway, let's recap on the week and what you guys loved the most over the past few days, shall we?

1.// This gorgeous blue & ivory rug

I shared on my stories for under $120 is SUCH A STEAL. No wonder so many of you snagged this beauty. It's such an awesome deal and such quality for the price. I can't wait to share our little mini dining room makeover with you guys, I really hope you love the light subtle changes as much as I do. I'm in the process of switching out all the jute rugs in our home for more lighter shades and neutral tones. If only because I just want something a little new,fresh and different. If you've been on the hunt for the perfect rug on a budget, you can find this beauty here.

2. Madewell V-Neck Tanks //

The. MOST. AMAZING. V-NECK. TANKS. EVER. I can't even deal with how comfy and versatile these tanks are. If you're looking for a low key summer staple for your wardrobe, these are perfect, and the fact that they're under $20 makes them even more appealing. For reference, I'm wearing an XS in the picture. And the color is Mauve Shadow. You can find them here.

3. Medallion Bath Towels// 

If you missed the awesome sale on these, don't fret. Even the full price isn't bad on these beauties. I snagged these for our master bathroom because of the pretty pattern and neutral tones, but mostly because I loved the fringe. I mean, I obviously need ALL THE FRINGE THINGS. You can get them here.

4.Becca Hydra Mist Facial Powder// Maybe the best way to update your Summer makeup/skincare is adding the product to you're daily routine. If you use foundation or BB cream daily and use a setting powder, you NEED TO UPGRADE. Let me tell ya, this product is a GAME changer. It is powder when you pick it up, but turns to a liquid when you put it on your face. Creating a smooth airbrush finish on your skin. Not only that, but it has a cooling sensation which is perfect if you need a little mid-day makeup refresh. If you have trouble finding a setting powder that doesn't dry out your skin or settle into lines, SEARCH NO MORE and add this to your cart A.S.A.P! Then you can thank me later. 

5. Monogram Mug//
 Snagged the CUTEST little monogram mug at anthropologie a few weeks ago, I love the colors and the pretty patterns. It didn't really surprise me that so many of you babes snagged one too! Also, don't mind the weird spray tan line, that's what I get for letting Nick test out my new St.Tropez Pro Light on me! HA!!!!!

So there ya have it! The best finds of the week according to YOU! These posts are so fun and literally would NOT be possible without you, so when I say THANK YOU I mean it. I really really mean it! I hope you all have the best weekend ever! As always I love to hear from you, so drop a comment for me below or send me a message on Instagram! Can't wait to see what you guys think about this weeks finds! XOXO

Readers April Favorites From Amazon!

Happy Monday friends! We had SUCH a busy and eventful weekend, actually this whole past week has been a whirlwind of events. First our dog Max got hit by a bus, yes! A bus! But thankfully he escaped with just a broken hip and he is expected to heal without surgery which we're thankful for. Nicholas has been busy with lacrosse, he had 3 games last week, and I was busy preparing for a Wedding I was in this past weekend. 

As most of ya'll know, we're busy working on some exterior updates on our house. I can't wait to share with you once everything is done but to be honest, I wasn't expecting to tackle this specific project quite yet. We still have some loose ends to tie up in the bathroom and I also decided it would be the perfect time to make some updates in our dining room. Spring is weird, I get random urges to just completely change ANY and EVERYTHING. Anyone else like this? Or am I just crazy? Wait. Don't answer that.

ANYWAY!! We're wrapping up another month which means, you guessed it, a round up of what you guys were loving this month! I always love to look back and reflect on the things you guys loved, purchased and shared with me. It's so fun and gives me great insight into what you guys want to see in the future from TGF.

Today I wanted to chat about Amazon, ya'll know I LOVE ME SOME AMAZON. I seriously feel so bad for my mailman, but #bloggerlife. I need ALL the things so I can share what's worth it and what's not with all of my friends. I'm also trying to subconsciously chill with the exclamation points!!!!! I can't help myself though, I just get really excited, and don't know how else to express my excitement through text with you all. HA!

1.// Eden's Garden Diffuser- Okay first up- Everyone seemed to love my diffuser I got from Eden's Garden but sometimes it's better to order through Amazon with free PRIME shipping. Which you can do here. I have the pink one in our bedroom and the tan one downstairs in the living room. If you want to read more about oils, check out {this post!}

2.// Bath Tub Caddy- I shared this on my Instagram Stories a few weeks ago when I shared our Master Bath Renovation with you! I actually got this as a Christmas gift and I've been DYING to use it ever since, I love that I can keep all my must haves {like wine! ha!) close by while I'm relaxing in the tub. This would make an AMAZING Mother's Day gift, *hint hint* If you don't have one and you love to take baths you need it in your life.
3.//Bamboo Window Shades- I shared these when I shared our bedroom a few weeks ago, we have several sets of bamboo shades throughout our house and I love them all! I just hung these over our french doors along with sheer curtains. I got these in the shade "Whitewash" but keep in mind that this particular color doesn't block out light. If you want a shade that does that I suggest a darker shade and also some heavier curtains, like drop cloths. 

4.//Real Touch Tulips- Okay, so I never used to be a fan of fake flowers because well, they look fake. But NOT ANYMORE!! I discovered these gorgeous faux tulips recently and I'm obsessing hard over them. Obviously you guys are too! Nick Didn't even believe they were fake until he touched them! They have long stems, and big blooms, similar to real tulips. I have a set of these in my bathroom currently but I'm planning to get more. They are absolutely stunning, especially for the price! 
5.//Wooden Tray- The price dropped on my favorite tray and I couldn't wait to share with you guys! I love this tray so so much and it's so much fun to decorate for the seasons, I was so excited that ya'll were able to snag it for a deal too! 

So there ya have it babes! The TOP Amazon buys of the month according to you guys, my lovely readers! I seriously can't thank all of you guys enough for the continuous love and support! It means so much more to me than you know! 

Did any of you snag any of these deals? I'd love to hear from you guys! Drop a comment for me below or shoot me a message over on Instagram! Happy Monday!

The Best Spring Decor Finds for UNDER $25!

{this post may contain affiliate links, thank you guys so much for helping make this little blog possible! I couldn't do it without you!}

Hey babes! It's a rainy, cloudy, dreary Monday and I'm just wondering if Spring will ever be here to stay. We did have a gorgeous weekend though, temps were in the 80's and trust me, Sav and I were enjoying EVERY SINGLE SECOND OF IT. We basically live outside in the Summer so I'm ready. Also, Nick randomly decided to rip off the siding on the bottom of our house because he "didn't like the color" anymore, which also turned into us FINALLY re-doing our front porch, I'm excited, but I really would have appreciated some time to prepare myself. You know what I'm Sayin'? So I literally feel like my house is complete chaos right now. Better to get it done now though while the weather isn't great so by the time it gets warm again I can full enjoy it, right?! 

Meanwhile I still have some small things to finish up in the master bathroom to share with you guys but for the most part that's finished. I'm hoping to get the full reveal up for you guys this week! I am totally thrilled with how this turned out and it's quickly become my favorite room in the whole house. 

We clearly have a ton going on, but this is what our life is always like, what can I say? 

I've been meaning to put this post together for you guys for the past few weeks, I've been getting lots of questions about Spring/Summer decor and how to decorate on a budget so I wanted to share with you, some of my recent favorite finds for Spring for the home for UNDER $25! I'll be doing a similar post soon with my favorite Spring finds under $25 for the CLOSET but I figured it would be best to separate the two into different posts.

First let's start with what might perhaps be my favorite find from the new {opalhouse line at Target.} My Macrame Table Runner. It's literally a third of the cost of the one at anthropologie and still super pretty. I snagged one for the buffet table in the dining room and I'm pretty happy with the quality for the $25 I paid! 

You also can't go wrong with a bundle of pretty faux flowers! The key is to find ones that LOOK real, Nick is always mind blown when I tell him our faux flowers aren't real. I snagged these tulips recently and he insisted they weren't fake until he touched them! Seriously, the quality is THAT GOOD. I also shared this bundle of peonies and they're perfect! I want about 8 more. HA! 

I searched high and low at some of my favorite places to shop for home decor for what I think are the best deals on decor for Spring. I like to switch things up so it's important to me when buying seasonal decor that it's on the cheaper side and budget friendly. I know a lot of you can relate!

I'm going to share some of my other favorites below for you guys and I won't ramble about everything for 10 hours! But if you have any questions about anything shoot me a message! You guys know I love to answer your questions and love to hear from you and help when I can! 

Happy Monday! Here's to a great week!

My favorite finds from the Opalhouse line at Target

Oh, hey guys! How was your weekend? Apparently a new line of decor dropped at Target or something? I don't know if you've heard about it? (can you sense the sarcasm here?) I got lots of messages over the weekend about the new line. I was able to pop into Target a few times this week as they were unveiling everything and I have to say, I am pretty dang impressed. 

It's very Anthropologie-ish and really fun with pops of bright colors, textures and fabrics. I'm really into boho farmhouse style right now and I believe that you can very easily mix the two. I shared a post about just how to do it here.

I promised you guys I would share some of my personal favorites from the line and so today, we're talking about what I love, and what I didn't. 

I'm really impressed with the rugs and the selection of them! Also, loving the quality of all of the fun pillows and the very affordable prices. 

I personally was not impressed with any of the throws. I'm a big throw person, but didn't love any from this line. I understand that thin throws are summer throws, which is totally okay, but a lot of them felt itchy which was a big turn off for me. 

The quilts and bedding though are very impressive, the rich textures, colors and fabrics are gorgeous and a great option to more expensive alternatives. 

I'm hoping to get my hands on lots of the outdoor stuff soon, I'm in love with all the black and white for outside spaces, the outdoor line is my personal favorite. 

Below, I'm sharing a few of my personal favorites from the line, and over the next few days I'll be sharing some things I snagged! There are lots of great dupes to things I own at half the cost! Like this macrame table runner here. for less than $25!

Did any of you guys pop into Target this weekend to see any of these goodies? What were you most impressed with?
