Amazon Prime Style

Hi!

I’m a huge fan of Amazon Prime. I’m not real sure what we did before we had the option of ordering products and having them delivered to our house in a flash. Up to this point, we pretty much have only used prime for household items but recently, I feel like I’ve uncovered a gold mine of the inexpensive fashion variety.

You can be assured that I’m going to keep on sharing all the stuff I’m finding but I wanted to go ahead and give you a little peek into what I’ve ordered so far.

Lerner Olivia’s Nursery

Hi, friends! So excited have you here today to come take a look inside Lerner Olivia’s nursery! This room was truly a labor of love for me. All I have to say is thank goodness for second trimester energy because I had a LOT of projects that had to get done in this room before any of the fun decorating could begin. The walls needed two coats of white paint and all the trim had to be touched up too. I also had to paint the ceilings and then install the wallpaper. SO thankful all that is done!

My inspiration for the room all started with wanting to have a wallpaper statement wall. I fell head over heels for this Caitlin Wilson removable wallpaper because of the beautiful mix of powdery pinks and french blue. I’ve done wallpaper installation before and this one was very easy to use.

I purchased all the other items in the nursery without even having the wallpaper in hand so to say I was nervous about how the colors would come together would be an understatement.

I did a little happy dance (or a big one!) when the wallpaper arrived and matched perfectly with what we already had in the nursery!

Next it was just pulling together all the other decorative pieces. Obviously this was my favorite part.

The gold deer head and print are both Hobby Lobby purchases!

I found these antique children’s books in a second hand store and they were $1 each. I grabbed them so fast it would have made your head spin. I like the mix of vintage and new on this shelf. I especially love that a few of the items were my grandmothers so now I can think of her whenever I see this pretty little part of the room. This Gold Shelf was a great find and is super affordable! The quality is great and it is super easy to assemble. Love the way these White Woven Baskets fit just right on the bottom shelf.

I loved getting to finally print and frame a few of our favorite shots from our baby announcement shoot! Better late than never, right? Megan Wallach, you really are my dream catcher!

 

 

Kind of can’t wait to get these sweeeeeet rose gold moccasins on my baby girl’s little feet!

 

 

This Set of Three Mirrors was a great Target find and finished up this wall perfectly.

This shelf was the perfect spot to hold a few of our very favorite books! Lola Dutch, I Had a Favorite Hat, All the Ways I Love You, and Sunshine and Snowballs.

I just added some faux lamb’s ear leaves and a pretty little flower to pull in some more texture and color to this otherwise one dimensional section of the room. Isn’t it amazing how small details can make such a big difference?

Gold Hooks

Changing Pad Cover

Throw Blanket

PomPom Basket

Changing Table

Side Table

Lamp

Bedding

Crib

Crib Sheet

Wallpaper

Round Mirror

This Crib was a wayfair find and is so affordable! I like how it has the look of a Jenny Lind with it’s own classic flare. It was very easy to assemble, too.

This Rocker was a floor sample at our local Pottery Barn Kids store and OH my goodness I’m so glad I found it when I did. It was majorly discounted, which was the only reason we could realistically make it work. One thing I am very excited about is that the rocker legs can be removed and we can add regular legs whenever we want to use it in a different way. You guessed it, even more Target finds in this velvet Round Pillow and these Gold Frames.

Blackout Curtain Panels were a MUST because of how much light comes into this room. The faux silk feel of these from Pottery Barn Kids just have such an elegant feel to them. I love how they vibe with this pretty crystal Chandelier.

 

 

 

Outfit

Hat

Pacifier Clip

This White Shag Rug was a last minute find when the one I originally planned to use was too dark in the room. This one is the MOST cozy. It feels like walking on a cloud and the color is the perfect white without being too ivory or too icy. Love it SO much!

 

 

Floor Lamp

We had planned the girl’s birthday party for the same night as the nursery photo shoot (oopsies!) so I had been running around like a crazy all afternoon trying to get everything ready. I was a sweaty mess but still decided to freshen up FAST and throw on this Pink Lace Dress so I could jump in a few nursery pictures. I’m so glad I did! Now all I need in this space is a sweet baby to make it just perfect.

Thank y’all so much for all your sweet encouraging words throughout this whole pregnancy. From the bottom of our hearts we appreciate you getting so excited with us for our new addition and for taking the time to come see this little space today!

Thank you to our sweet friend Megan for taking these pictures. You truly are the best in the industry!

Scroll for links to any of the items used in the nursery and please let me know if I can answer any questions about any of the products that were used in the space.

Dyson Deals on eBay

I had a friend in high school who was an AVID eBay shopper. She used to get incredible deals on brand name jeans and designer purses. I remember constantly thinking she had struck gold with this website. Fast forward ten years (wow, I feel old!) and I’m still a huge fan of eBbay.

These days I’ve switched my focus a bit from designer brands of clothes to a few items that fit my day to day needs a little better. Starting with the Mother of all vacuums… the Dyson vacuum. I’ve heard people rave about these suckers for years but I always just felt they were way out of my price range. Recently I was made aware that my old faithful eBay was offering up to 50% off Dyson vacuums and I was immediately ready to pounce on one.

Because of the cordless option, it makes car cleaning a breeze . It also saves time when you’re trying to vacuum the entire house because you don’t have to keep switching the plug to different spots.

There are so many options of brand new products but you can also save even more by choosing a refurbished Dyson. As always, eBay gives incredible feedback on all their sellers so you can feel confident about your purchase knowing everyone is held accountable. I typically try to lean toward sellers that have over 100 reviews and at least 4.5 stars. This was you know they’re tried and true.

If you’re like me and you’ve been toying with the idea of adding a Dyson to your list of most loved household appliances, take a tip from your girl and get you a Dyson for less from eBay.

I’ve also had a lot of questions about my Blendtec blender that I use to make all my smoothies. eBay has great deals on these, too!

Here are a few favorites I’ve rounded up for y’all!

Thank you to Ebay for sponsoring today’s post! As always, all opinions shared are my own.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018

Hi, friends!

I know you’ve probably already heard the rumblings from the blogging world that the biggest sale of the YEAR is almost here. The first year I ever shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I felt super overwhelmed and like I was missing out at every turn. I didn’t even know where to begin so I ended up disappointed when I missed out on some really great deals.

My goal in this blog post is to take all the guesswork out for y’all and make this whole process simple and rewarding.

So let’s get started with my simplified guide to The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

Why Is This Sale a Big Deal?

Most of the time when you hear the word “sale”, it means that a retailer is pushing old merchandise by marking it down. The reason this sale is different is because Nordstrom is introducing brand new merchandise for Fall 2018 at heavily discounted prices. This is kind of unheard of in this industry and that’s why it’s such a big deal.

When Does It Start?

Early access for the sale starts on July 12 and will run through July 19th. The only way you can shop early is if you have a Nordstrom card so now is a great time to get one. If you’re not into credit cards, you can also get the Nordstrom debit card. You will receive a $40 Nordstrom Note (gift card) when you open up a card, which is pretty awesome. You also earn points all throughout the year to be used toward your purchases. I LOVE having a Nordstrom card! You can apply for yours here. 

On July 20th, the sale will open to the public! Historically, many of the best items from the sale will have already sold out by this point but it’s still worth it to shop. The sale will go thru August 5th and after that, everything will go back to full price.

What’s The Best Way To Shop?

Online is THE way to go when it comes to shopping this sale. The stores are absolutely nuts and the inventory online is abundant. You can also buy online and pick up in store if you want to get your items faster. This sale is very extensive so instead of going directly to the Nordstrom site, come here to my blog first and I will have all the best items ready to click and shop so you don’t have to waist time looking through pages and pages.

Nordstrom makes returns super easy so there’s no risk ordering online!

I’ll have categories arranged by must-haves (the items that will sell out quickest), shoes, accessories, home, beauty, kids, and mens.

What Else Do I Need To Know?

I will be placing a huge order to do a try on session at home so I can show y’all ways to style the different pieces from the sale and you can see what everything looks like live in action. I prefer not to go into stores to do try on sessions because the main purpose of these is to show YOU the items and I don’t want to make more work for the already overwhelmed Nordstrom employees!

I will save all my try on sessions in stories as well as on my blog. I’ll have a sales tab that’s devoted just to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale so it will be easy for you to find.

Pieces to pay close attention to will be:

Boots

Coats and Jackets

Cardigans and Sweaters

Booties

Denim

I will have my first post with must-have items LIVE and ready for y’all by 6 am the first day of the sale and will continue to cover the sale throughout its duration. I will be working my tail off trying to make this sale a huge success for YOU my sweet readers! I always appreciate so so so much y’all shopping through my links, especially during a huge sale like this one. I hope I can help to make this sale super fun for y’all and please know that I will be here to answer and and all questions I can throughout the sale. Do not hesitate to reach out!

Thanks so much for reading, y’all! Have a happy day!

Fourth of July Outfit Inspiration

I LOVE planning outfits for me and my fam for the fourth! Typically I try to have something festive for brunch in the morning, then a suit for the pool, and finally an outfit for watching fireworks. Maybe that sounds excessive (for sure it does!) but I just can’t narrow it down!

I know we still have a little bit of time between now and the fourth but to avoid that dreaded last minute dash to the store on the 3rd of July, I’m doing my best to help you plan ahead!

Here are a few of the favorite styles I’ve found!

And let’s not forget the kiddos!
