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?

Easy ways to add Boho vibes into your Farmhouse!

Let's chat bohemian vibes. I've always sort of been into the whole wanderlust, free spirit vibes. I've always loved the look of bright colors mixed with fun quirky patterns and funky textures. But let's be real, we live in a farmhouse. A farmhouse that FEELS like a farmhouse. With lots of farmhouse bones. I always thought some of the bohemian style I loved so much just wouldn't mix well with my current home decor situation. 

Boy was I wrong.

I started adding some fun, low key, bohemian elements into our farmhouse last Spring. Honestly, it was easier then I thought to add subtle elements in that didn't scream in your face or look too out of place among my farmhouse basics. It's always fun to keep things fresh, and I always get bored when things are the same for too long. However, since we do have lots of work still left to do here at our casa, re-doing entire rooms isn't exactly on my high priority list considering we still have so much left to do. 

So I like to add fun little elements in subtle ways. So today I'm going to share a few quick & easy ways you can add some low key vibes into your farmhouse decor. You might be surprised at how easily the two styles blend together. 

1. Throw Pillows//-
I mean, okay, duh. Obviously. Throw pillows are probably the easiest, most cost effective way to add some fun vibes into a space to make it feel fresh & new again. Thinking in terms of bohemian style, think thick & chunky textures with fun accents and elements. I'm absolutely drooling over pom-poms and chunky knit EVERYTHING, right now. One of the things I love to do is keep my "basics" neutral, so that I can easily add in different colors and textures that will blend well with anything. Having white furniture totally helps with this.  I'm obsessing over this one.  and this one!

2. Layers//-
When I think of bohemian style I personally think of fun textures incorporated in fun ways. I've always been huge into layering everything, this is a trend that plays very well in farmhouse decor & style as well. Adding a simple textured, table runner in a macrame texture adds so much character to a space with such minimal effort. Trust me, try it! You'll see! It can add immediate warmth to a space! I add a table runner EVERYWHERE when a space feels too boring or bland for me. I have this gorgeous knit runner {here}.

3. Become a crazy plant lady//- 
confession, you guys I have a black thumb. My Dad is like a plant GOD and I can't even keep a faux plant alive, WHAT? I HAVE TO DUST IT? No thanks. It's dead to me. But when you think of Bohemian style you think of plants right? At least I do. Plants bring a space to life, literally. And I love adding them in a space that needs some fresh vibes. I love my {fiddle fig} and some of my other favorite boho style plants include {creeping jenny} and {creeping charlie}, both fit in easily with farmhouse style and decor, also. 

4. Add Color & Patterns//-
While the basis of farmhouse decor is keeping things neutral, I love to add low key boho vibes by bringing in some fun colors and patterns. You can do this is subtle ways, with a fun textured rug, like {this one}, or with something as simple as a few mugs. I'm currently crushing on {this one.}  You'll be surprised how just sitting these out on your counter can instantly cheer you up. 
You can also add something subtle like a fun printed rug {like this one} which has lots of funky textures & colors. 

It's all the rage right now. I mean, who knew that 80's brass would come back in style? While it might look similar to what your parents had in their homes back in the 80's (hey! 80's babies unite!) it's not the same. The new modern twist is lots of fun and a great way to instantly spruce up your space. You can do something super minor like spray paint your current hardware bronze {with my favorite brass spray paint} or even just paint some switch plate covers or your bathroom faucets. Adding little elements will add instant warmth and character to a space. 

In the end- DON'T be afraid to branch out and try new things. It's just paint, it's just a pillow, it's just a rug. Decorating our homes should be fun, and we should think of it as dressing ourselves. It's great to stick to the basics, but you can easily bring a space together by adding small touches of character which sets things apart and makes your home uniquely YOU!

What do you guys think? Would you add any of these elements into your homes? I'd love to chat and hear from you! Drop a comment for me below or come say, "hey!" on instagram.

March Favorites

Hey friends! I sure hope you all had a great Easter weekend! I know some of you guys are probably nearing the end of your Spring breaks, we had a super short break here, only 2 days and Nick will go back to school tomorrow. This time of year is tough because I'm so badly yearning for Spring & Summer. It's like April really tends to drag on because the weather can be so weird. 75 one day, and snowing the next. But you know what they say, April showers, bring May flowers! I'm definitely counting down. 

I wanted to apologize for not sharing my Friday Favorites last Friday, we've been dealing with a death in the family and it's been pretty tough on all of us. I want to also say THANK YOU to all my you guys who have reached out to me and said prayers for my family during this time. They are very much appreciated. While we're all struggling and very sad about My uncles battle with cancer, I know he is in a much better place and is no longer suffering, which brings me peace. 

Speaking of April, can ya'll believe it's here?! Every month I round up a post with all of your favorites from the month, these are items and products that I've shared that you guys have raved about and loved. I love putting this post together because it helps me get to know you better!

This month has been a good one. We've discovered lots of finds for the home, and pretty finds for Spring for your closet! Here are your top 10 favorite purchases from the month!

1.// Abercrombie & Fitch Woven Tee- No surprise here, by far my favorite tees for Spring. Can easily be dressed up or down, and transition well from season to season, plus, duh, I love floral prints in my wardrobe AND in my home right now. Clearly you guys are too! WIN! 

2.//Miller Logo Flat Sandal- When my favorite sandals went on sale you guys didn't hesitate to snag them! I have these in 3 colors and absolutely love them as a staple in my Spring/Summer wardrobe! I got them in the new color- MAKEUP- for Spring and absolutely love them. I've worn my Miller sandals on several trips and vacations, including Disney World and my they didn't hurt my feet. It's always great to have a neutral pair of nude flip flops. ;)

3.//Soft & Sexy V-neck Tee- LOVE these tees, clearly I have an obsession with t-shirts of all kinds! These are super soft & come in several colors. Spring staple for sure. I mean, can you ever have enough tees? No. The answer is No.
4.//White Jegging Crop Jean- Shared these jeans in a recent try on sesh on instagram, and you guys loved them as much as I did, super stretchy, just the right amount of distressing and the perfect Summer "jean". 

5.//Volcano Candle- If Spring & Summer had a smell, it would pretty much be this. At least for me. I love burning this candle this time of year. ONE candle LITERALLY fills my whole house with the yummiest scent! It went on sale and you guys didn't hesitate to snag them and stock up, but this candle is very much worth the full price in my opinion. I always have at least 3 on hand. 

6.//Shirt Jacket- The cutest, most versatile jacket for Spring is on SALE currently! Camo is sort of a thing right now if you didn't notice. I love this jacket because of it's lighter tones. Looks perfect with white jeans. Snag this for sure if you haven't already! 

7.//Best Self Tanner- I shared this self tanner while we we on vacation in Jamaica and the phrase immediately started coming in! FINALLY! A self-tanner that doesn't leave you splotchy! By far my favorite one.

8.//The BEST Swimsuit for Summer- LOVE this suit! and the price point isn't too shabby either! I really struggle with finding suit's lately that cover my butt, or at least half of it? What's up with that? Either my butt's getting bigger or suit's are getting smaller and for the sake of my feelings, we're going to go with the latter. It's perfect because you can tie it in the back to adjust how tight you want it to be to keep your girls covered. Comes in 3 colors! Size up one size! 

9.//Faux Peony Bundle- This GORGEOUS faux peony bundle is so detailed and realistic, I know I sound like a broken record here but I LOVE florals this time of year, and I'm so glad you guys do too! Hands down the best faux floral bundle out there! So gorgeous in dough bowls, baskets, or simply to display in an arrangement on your coffee table. You won't regret this purchase!

10.//Gold Sandals- I wore these so much on our recent vacation, and for good reason, they can so easily be dressed up or down! I wore them with dresses, cut-off's, jeans and the list goes on. You guys loved them as much as I did. If you're looking for a must have go to sandal for the upcoming seasons, this is it! 

So there ya have it babes! Your favorites from the month! I can't wait to see what goodies we find in April! I'm so ready for warm weather, sunshine and hopefully some REAL flowers? Who else? 

Have you snagged any of these goodies I shared? I'd love to hear what you guys think! Drop a comment for me below or stop over & say, "hey!" on Instagram! LOVE hearing from you guys!
