5 Easy Ways To Decorate Your Space for Summer with Flower Home!

{this post is sponsored by Wal-Mart but as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own!}

Hey hey friends! Well this week just flew by super fast and now we leave for vacation in less than 24 hours and I haven't even packed so basically I'm in full panic mode as per usual.

However, while we've already started our next project, I wanted to share a space in our new living room with you guys! To say I'm obsessed would be a bit of an under-statement. 

If you've been following me for the past year or so, you've probably noticed I've strayed away a bit from in your face farmhouse style, which leaves me with quite the predicament honestly, since this blog is called The Glam Farmhouse and all, however, I knew it was time for a change. 

My living room hasn't made my happy now for quite a bit, I hated the dark flooring, our Ikea Ektorp, while it's been good to us, was falling apart and I was really tired of everything looking exactly the same. I needed to bring life back into this space again. I'm a huge believer that style evolves, we grow, we change, and we start to like different things. This isn't bad! Change is a good thing, and I'm learning now after completing (well, almost..) this room. For the first time in a long time it makes me smile again. It makes me happy and brings peace to my soul. A room should do that, your home should do that. Your home should totally be a reflection of YOU, and not everyone else. 

So while I'm still stuck at what my "style" is right now, I can tell you that I carefully selected everything in this room with the vibes it gave me, each and every thing makes me insanely happy. 

Would you believe me if I told you the one thing that inspired this whole room makeover was at Wal-Mart!? I seriously am dying over all of their collaborations lately, but this one, this one might just be my favorite! Wal-Mart is quickly becoming my go to lately as I've snagged so many cute decor items and clothing items from there recently. {this peach ottoman} is what dreams are made of honestly, so gorgeous and full of life! 

Just like the new home decor items from Drew Barrymore's new FLOWER home collection at Wal-Mart! Each piece is so beautiful and unique, and I've been loving adding things from the line to our casa! 
Today, I wanted to share a few tips for updating ANY space for the upcoming seasons! 

1. Swap out heavy throws for lighter ones in fun colors! 
This is one of my favorite things to do! I absolutely love this throw in this gorgeous gold color, that would also work for Fall but also year round. It's lighter than a wool throw but still soft and cozy to snuggle up in without feeling "heavy". 

2.Switch out pillows and opt for floral prints and fun pops of color!
It's no secret I'm a throw pillow junkie! I absolutely love these floral print throw pillows and this jade green velvet with pink tassels is so fun. Floral print is so fun for Spring and Summer and something I always love to use in my decor this time of year. 

3.Add a fun accent color-
You can do this with anything you wish but in this case I opted for this fun peach colored ottoman for Summer. It's so fun and the fabric is light and lovely. You can also do this with things like candles, and throw blankets!

4.Change your wall art-

I love my old window panes and I don't think I'll ever get rid of them, probably because they actually came from this house when we first bought it! They're so easy to layer and switch up for the seasons, you can opt for a fun wreath but lately I've really been loving art and signs, I'm obsessed with this {palm leaf print} for Summer! 

5. Add Greenery-
This is by far one of my favorite things to do, real or faux, it doesn't matter. If you're wondering what a space is missing, add a plant or some florals and 99% of the time it will bring a space to life!

6. Fresh lighting-
LIGHTING IS EVERYTHING. Seriously. I'm crushing so hard on this fun lamp from Drew's line! The rattan is so fun for the upcoming warmer months but would also work for well beyond them too! 

So that's it! You DON'T have to spend a ton of money to give your space new life, lots of times you can start small, curtains, rugs, whatever, to make a space feel new again! 

When "designing" this space I knew I wanted to keep my furniture neutral so I could easily switch out pillows and throws for the season. 

This makeover is proof that creating a comfortable, styling and IG WORTHY space doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg, Wal-Mart has more than just the functional stuff, you can check out all the gorgeous items for you home on the site, stuff that fits your style AND your budget! The value is amazing. Everything is such high quality and I am beyond in love! 

So what do you guys think? Do you change up your decor for the seasons? I'd love to hear from you guys! Drop a comment for me below or send me a message on Instagram

Thank to so much for spending a bit of your day with me! I just love ya'll so big!

    Wal-Mart Swimsuit Try On!

    {this post is sponsored by Wal-Mart, as alway, all opinions and thoughts are my own and I can't thank you all enough for supporting me}

    Hey babes! Can ya'll even freaking BELIEVE that it's mid May already? I'm so freaking excited but also panicking just a bit because I've been throwin' back chicken nuggets like it's my job and I was reminded when I attempted to try on some bathing suits recently. Like, did brands forget to add half the bathing suit orrr??? So in my quest for cute and affordable swimwear I went to the last place I thought I would ever find a swimsuit that I loved, and that I felt was comfortable. 

    Until I went to FREAKING Wal-Mart YOU GUYS. I can't even believe how obsessed I've been with them lately. SO AFFORDABLE and so cute! They are knocking it out of the park in all areas. Clothes, decor, swimsuits, you name it. Especially in the fashion department. Have ya'll taken a peek lately? 

    Today I'm sharing a few thing you NEED in your summer wardrobe from THE WALMART asap. Walmart finds tend to sell out quickly online, so if you see something you love-snag it ASAP. Everyone is catching on to to the awesome finds! 

    For reference- I am a 36c, 128 lbs, and I'm 5'2. I find that information to be super helpful when I'm shopping clothes online!

    First up is this suuuuper cute floral print yellow swimsuit I can't even freaking believe how much I love this one. 

    SO cute, FULL booty coverage and nice support for the girls. Minimal padding and has a tie in the back! ;) I do suggest sticking to your normal size in this- I tend to size up in swimsuits but NOT these, so it's really nice that the things are true to size. I got a Small in the bottoms and a M in the top. Both fit perfect!

    This kimono is super versatile because it can also be worn with denim shorts, and a cute tank! I love pieces that can be worn multiple ways and this is totally one of them. I'm also linking a few of my faves below! 

    This hat is also from Wal-Mart and only 9 FREAKING DOLLARS YOU GUYS.
     I cannot.

    Next up I snagged this cute floral print swimsuit top in the same style because it's so cute! This one has some cute lace detailing that is freaking adorable and also True to Size! 

    These cute sandals are sooo pretty and also from Wal-Mart but online only!

    I've had SO MANY REQUESTS to share shorts in a midi style or for taller girls, I've yet to find a pair that are cute and comfortable but these are IT you guys! Seriously. SO CUTE and comfortable. 

    They have some stretch and I got a size 4 in them- they run big so keep that in mind. I suggest sizing down! They come in tons of colors and are super affordable.
    You can check them out here along with all the different colors and they're under $14 bucks y'all. like freaking stop it right now.  

    I'm snagging so many cute Walmart tops lately like, this pink one with lace detail on the sleeves. Super comfy! They also have cute basic tanks and tees that actually hold up in the wash. I'm super impressed! 

    I'm also dying over all the cute tote bags and beach bags they have there lately. Anyone else have a beach bag obsession or just me?! It's a problem. 

    Linking everything from today's post below for you to shop! Everything is in stock but probably won't be for long! 

    So I've gotta know! Have you been shopping or checking out Wal-Mart lately? I highly suggest you pop in and check out all the goodies! SO MANY cute things right now!

    AE late Spring Try On & Haul

    Hey cuties! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you guys are having a great week. I'm not really sure why but it's draaaaaaggging for me, I think because Nick and I are supposed to go away this weekend for a friends birthday! Anytime I have something to look forward to, I feel like it takes forever to get here! Ya know what I'm saying? 

    Anyway, I did some shopping at American Eagle from the new Spring collection that just dropped and I'm soooooo here for it! I freaking LOVE American Eagle. I know, I know, I'm 31 and that's probably weird but I don't care. They have the coziest and cutest casual clothes, are high quality and I always feel like everything is a reasonable price. 

    I'm planning to upload this session to my stories on Instagram but wanted to be sure ya'll got to see it first! I just so appreciate all of you who have made this blog possible for me, I can't put into words how beyond blessed and thankful I am! I just love ya'll so big! 

    Let's get started- for reference with sizing, I'm 5'2, 128 pounds (depending on how many tacos and nuggets I've had) and normally a size 4 or 6 in jeans and a S in tops. I always try to list sizing when sharing outfit pics because I know how important that can be to so many of us! 

    I picked up this cute gauze top with crochet detailing and I am LOVVVVVVING it so much! It's go the cutest fit, and is perfect for date night and concert season! Would love to see this paired with some denim cut offs and boots for a country concert! I paired it with these cute white denim skinnies that are the BEST white denim pants I've ever put on. NOT SEE through, and have a great fit. 
    got a 4 x-short for reference because I knew I'd be pairing them with wedges and heels. I got an XS in the top too. 

    Shoes can be found here. and I got a 7.5, which is my normal size! super comfy, and again, can be worn all the ways! 
    Here is another outfit option for the white denim, I love love chambray and this top is SO CUTE! The sleeves are adorable and it has a cute oversized fit. This is another versatile piece I feel like, I paired this with black skinnies, and some nude wedges over the weekend for date night! {UPDATE: TOP IS SOLD OUT- FIND SIMILAR HERE}

    Straw bag I got from the Shop Bop sale a few weeks ago! I loved my smaller one so much I snagged this one too! 

    Something else I snagged that I'm loving way more than I thought I would are these Tomgirl Jeans. I was so iffy about them but think they're really cute! Paired with some heels or flats and a cute fitted top they're adorable! If you want a baggier fit, I suggest getting your normal size, however I wanted them to be a bit more fitted so I got a 4 short, and they fit perfectly! 

    Also got this comfy sweatshirt  that I just love! You can get the matching shorts for this sweatshirt too! This one is a bit cropped so that's something to keep in mind, I can still tuck it into shorts though. Speaking of shorts, these are by far my favorite denim shorts! I remember them selling out so quickly last year so I snagged all the colors! Similar to the tomgirl denim, I sized down one size in the shorts! 

    So there ya have it! My picks from AE this month! I hope ya'll enjoyed and maybe found something you love too! ;) 

    You can shop everything from this post below! I also linked a great pair of Tory Burch Dupe Sandals that are under $40 bucks! 

    Thanks so much for the love and support always! I couldn't do this without you and am just so thankful! Hope you babes have the best weekend and can't wait to hear what ya'll are loving from AE lately!!

    5 of the BEST Water Infusions!

    Hey cuties! I hope ya'll had the best weekend! We did a few things around the house outside since it was so nice out on Saturday! We got most of the deck stained and I even ordered some new patio furniture I'm super excited about! I seriously can't wait until it's warm enough for me to be able to be outside again, I miss my plants! ha! 

    Anyway, totally off topic. I wanted to pop on today really quick to share with ya'll some of my favorite water infusions! I get asked to share every time I share my {water bottle} because it usually has some blend of fruit and/or spice in it. I honestly really don't mind plain ole' water but sometimes fruit infused water is super beneficial and I love the taste so it's a great way to drink more water if you struggle with that! 

    I really love {this water bottle} I purchased on Amazon about a year ago! I don't love that it's plastic but it does the job okay and it's held up awesome. I really like to drink water through a straw and find I drink more of it than when I don't have a water bottle with a straw, anyone else? 

    I'm going to share a few of my favorite water infusions in case ya'll are in need of a little push to drink more water during the day! Did you know that the average person should be drinking half their weight in water every single day?! That blew my mind because I was literally drinking half that, but when I increase my water intake I literally feel SO MUCH BETTER! My skin gets clearer, I feel better! 

    Infusion #1: 

    Pineapple is an anti-inflammatory and has awesome cleansing properties. It also helps maintain healthy bones and teeth! Mint is great for your digestive system and also awesome if you get frequent headaches

    This is by far my favorite water infusion EVER! It's so light and refreshing! I like to use frozen fruit whenever I can because it infuses better, but I will occasionally use fresh pineapple and let it infuse overnight! 

    Infusion #2: 

    {you can also add mint or basil to this one!}

    Kiwi is great for your skin, and can also reduce blood pressure! It also has lots of vitamin C, E and K! Strawberries are amazing for lots of things, including eye health! 

    TRUUUUUST ME, it's as good as it sounds;) 

    Infusion #3:

    This is a great detox water and taste super yummy! If you want added Watermelon flavor I suggest mashing a few watermelon cubes in the water. If you're okay with mild flavor, add a few sliced cubes to your water and let sit overnight. I really like using mint on all of my "water infusions" because it's super refreshing to me and also great for cramps! 

    Infusion #4:

    Love this super fruity blend! Since it's really hard to find frozen oranges, squeezing a little orange juice in the water and then infusing over night will give this maximum flavor! I always like to use frozen blueberries when I can, but fresh will also do just fine. 

    Infusion #5: 

    Great for water weight management and appetite control, I drink this mix a lot when I know I'll be doing a really tough workout because it aids in hydration! 

    You don't have to mix! Sometimes, water is great infused with just ONE thing. You really can't go wrong with cucumber water, lemon water or just plain ole' pineapple water! It's kinda fun mixing together different things, and it keeps me hydrated and motivated to continue drinking water which I sometimes suck at! 

    I'll update this post as I continue to find and mix blends that infuse well together! Until then, I hope this helps you get started and that it you give it a try! 

    Thanks so much for hanging out! I hope this post helps for those asking and wanting a few fruit infused water ideas! You can get my water bottle {here}. It's under $17 bucks and worth every penny!
