What’s in my Amazon Prime Day Cart

I am a huge fan of Amazon Prime. I would say 5 out of the 7 days a week I’ve ordered something off there. It can be something as simple as a pineapple corer, velvet hangers, or even vitamins. If I ever run into the postman I might ask him what he thinks about all the amazon packages he delivers for me. I know C thinks it’s obsessive, but hey, who can beat 2 day shipping and avoid a trip to the store!?

In honor of today (cause tbh I think it’s a pretty big day) I’m rounding up some things that I have in my cart! And before I share them with you all beware that a lot of them are home & kitchen accessories! Since I am redecorating the loft I’m in this house mode!

For the Home 

Everything from gadgets to bed time needs. These four things are definitely on my list!

  1. Number 1 on the list is an Echo dot for the bedroom. Our Echo right now is on the kitchen desk and I want another one to wake up to. How nice is it going to be rolling over and asking Alexa for the weather report for the day.. while still in bed?  Or it could be dangerous.. I might never want to get up!
  2. Vide Monitoring Security Camera – This may sound silly to you all but I am totally getting this little camera. I want to see what Oslo is up to when we are gone or who comes in the house when we are out of town… makes me feel like I am also on a detective status lol
  3. When I am laying in bed working on my computer I always get the worst arm cramps. I think this memory foam pillow is the fix!
  4. You know you are really an adult when you trade bed sheets in for a new pair of shoes. But since we are thinking about upgrading our bed we need new sets of king size sheets. I am always sketched out to buy these sort of things online but I read the reviews and I feel confident in these!

Kitchen Appliances & Tools

I like to spend money on things I know I am really going to use especially when it comes to kitchen appliances. Over the past couple of years I’ve invested in the Ninja bender, Nuwave air ryer, Gourmia dehydrator, two crock-pots, 3 Keurigs, the Breville Pizza Maker, Kitchen aid mixer, and more. Also, we just had to get a new dishwasher.. that was a drop in the bucket! Anyways, I’m always looking for new cooking tools and coming across things I know I would use. Here are three things I’m thinking about snagging!

  1. Belgian Waffle Maker – I use to have a waffle maker years ago but I don’t have much faith in it anymore. I want a new one and create a Saturday morning waffle bar. Who is with me!?
  2. Vegetable Spiral Slicer – I was looking at getting the 4 blade pro set. Does anyone have an experience with these? I would love to make vegetable spaghetti and curly fries with this!
  3. Rapid Egg Cooker – If you all are like me then you always over or under cook your boiled eggs. Someone once told me to add baking soda to your boiling water and it should help. I think it does but I know I could still use this cooker!

Home & Coffee Table Accessories 

I like to call the things scattered around my place knick knacks.. even though they really are better than that. I need some new things for my desk shelves, coffee tables, and night stands. I’m adding these to my cart and I can’t wait to get them!

  1. I’m going to stack the books on top of each other to create some dimension on the coffee table!
  2. I might get this guy to hang above my bar cart or somewhere else! love the gold bull horns
  3. I’m adding some rose gold accents in the kitchen so I figured I should snag these coasters! I’m a huge fan of all the marble right now too!
  4. Love the dog book! lol
  5. Styled!! because I love styling!

Fitness 

For days I don’t go to the gym I wanted some things to use in my house! Now is the time to get them since they are on sale!

  1. I have a smaller ab roller but it is really hard on my back. I use this exact one when I go to the YMCA and love it! definitely getting this!
  2. I bought a YOGA book last year and have yet to use it. I feel like I’m always sore from running and lifting weights that I couldn’t even begin to stretch out my body. Maybe this little tool can help!
  3. I’ve taken this brand of BCAA’s for 2 years now and love them! highly recommend BPI and getting them now because they are cheaper today than at GNC.
  4. Clints cousin is a pro at Hula Hoop. I need her to teach me some tricks then I can use this weighted one!!   I’ve heard these things can work wonders on your core! I’m willing to give it a go!

4th of July Bar Cart Inspiration

Bar Cart // Recycled Bottle Flower Vase // Recycled Bottle Utensil Holder // Gold Wine Rack //  Tea Towels

With the Fourth of July 2 days away I figured it would be fun for me to share something a little different with you all, my BAR CART!!! This is one of my favorite things in the apartment because I redecorate it all the time! It’s a home decor piece that can go from one style to another in a quick, couple steps.

For any occasion or event I just think you need two things to have the cutest bar cart!

  1. A Beautiful Bouquet
  2. A fun tea towel!

With these two things you’ve got yourself a decorated cart! Most of the time I keep whatever flower is in season in my vase, but for July 4th this bouquet was too cute not to pass up! I got it from Kroger’s in case you want to try to find a similar one. Most of the time I get my bouquets from Trader Joe’s though. They tend to have the best selection and prices! If you have one near you that’s the place to get them from!

My Fourth of July kitchen towels came from Kohl’s. I had a gift card that needed to be used so I started shopping for holiday decor and came across a 2 pack of these. Aren’t they super festive and fun!?–  I also have a couple kitchen towels from Parris Chic Boutique that I swap out. My favorite is this one!!! The saying just gets me dancing every time!

 

If you have a corner in your house that needs a little something I suggest splurging on a bar cart! They add a fun piece to your decor and can always be re decorated!

Kentucky Pillow

Now that I am back in Kentucky and settling down I figured it was time to start accenting some meaningful pieces into my home decor. And what better way to start than with a Kentucky pillow with all our states traditions? In that last picture you will notice I am pointing to my hometown, Henderson! Along with it and all the graphics, this truly describes home! I think these pillows would make for the perfect wedding gift or any gift in general! It’s a great piece to throw on your couch or bed and add a little warm touch.

 ‘Oh Snap’ Shirt

 I opened this shirt from the package and whispered to myself, “yep, it was made for me!” I always have a camera in hand and the amount of “Oh Snap” moments I have had in my blogging career are endless! Two things that go together like peas in a pod.. (Just like me and this shirt).  Seriously though, they have so many cute graphic tees available. From various sizes and baseball tee colors! These are the types of shirts that you just throw on and go but still look super cute as ever! Check out their entire collection HERE!

If you have any questions let me know! Hope you all have a great day!

bloom where you are planted!

Outfit Details: Tee // Shorts // Hunter Boots // Sunglasses

Balcony Details: Patio Furniture // Palm Print Pillows // Blue Ikat Round Outdoor Pouf // Brass Watering Can

Does anyone recognize that big leaf green plant from my Instagram story? The one that we like to call, “our love plant!” Well how could it be our love plant and me never share it on the blog? So, here it is!! Along with a full look at the balcony I transformed!

Over the past couple of years I have become an outdoor girl. I prefer to sit outside, work outside, walk to dinner, run to the gym.. pretty much everything. The more I’m outside, the better! After finishing up my office I knew this spot was going to be my next little project. For about two weeks I searched for patio furniture, pillows, and decor. Once I had all that ordered and I took C with me to get all my plants! Since I went with a leafy, tropical theme (hence the two pillows), I knew I needed my plants to coincide. I tried to pick out ones that reminded me of some place warm, the ocean, beach, and even Mexico! I had to have living plants too.. what’s the fun in buying in generic ones for an outdoor spot? All in all I probably spent a little too much $$ on my greens, but I love them! They make this little spot feel alive and colorful!

String lights and lanterns were part of my last minute touches. C hates bugs and bright lights so he said the less lighting the more likely he would join me out there to eat. (like a good finance I said, “your wish is my command haha). I purchased these Lanterns from At Home & Kirklands but I’ve noticed them at a ton of home stores. My string lights were from Amazon. I decided to go with the vintage bulbs and white and white string! At night we turn on these and it sets the mood! If you are re-doing any outdoor patio I say these two things are a must!

Let’s also not forget about Oslo Bleu on the Pouf! Originally, this was a foot rest for Clint. We don’t have one in our living room and Clint gets so annoyed. I tried to fix that with the balcony so I bought this blue one…. Then, Oslove decided it was time he claimed it! That’s his spot & he’s not going anywhere 😉

Some last minute thoughts… “Bloom where you are planted!” This quote is so true! I believe that no matter where life takes us it’s what we make of it that counts! If you make the most of where you are I think it leads to more happiness and love!! In this case, I planted myself on the balcony, let my decorating bloom, and now I have an outdoor spot that I truly enjoy!!

I have been dying to share my new office space with you all!!! And when I say dying, literally dying! Life has been so crazy with work, shoots, and traveling that it’s been almost impossible to find a time to get some pics. I told myself this was the week though!! and here it is! I apologize in advance for the overload on pictures. There were so many I just wanted to share them all! & over time I am sure they will be all over my social media!

For starters, I have put so much effort in designing and decorating this little space of mine. (Not to mention assembling furniture — I put the entire desk & shelves together without any help– can ya tell I am proud!?) I am so beyond pleased with how it turned out! For about a week straight I went to every home store, came home with at least two bags, then returned whatever didn’t work. I can’t tell you how many times C asked, “are you going to return something again?” Eventually I just stopped answering and laughed!! He knew I was on a mission! and mission complete it is!

For this room I was inspired by a clean theme. I wanted to be able to walk in the room, sit down, and work without too many distractions! A space that I could be efficient in, but also have a super fun style! I kept my colors to white, golds, and pinks. All my accessories are little accents of designers I love! Those are the pieces that tied in the whole room and made all my blogger dreams come true!

In my cloffice (closet/office) I style, create, and blog. It’s the true behind the scenes of all my work. At that chair I write to y’all, at the gold clothing rack I pick out the weeks looks, at the shelves I style accessories, and on the rug Oslo is always my (sleeping) assistant. I think the white fur rug is his favorite!  He just curls right up on it and makes himself right at home.

This one little room has taught me to design the exact way you want, never settle (because in the end you won’t be happy), have a space that makes you feel right at home, express your creativity, and most of all enjoy the fun in decor! Styling a room allows you to unleash your ideas and create a place to your design standards!

Hope you all enjoyed this post as much as I have sharing it! Now you can each feel like you are in my office with me, on this beYOUtiful blog journey!

xoxo, T <3
