Thrift Store Brass Lamp Makeover

Thrift Store Brass Lamp Makeover
Today I have another thrift store makeover for you guys. Again, an easy one! I love knocking these “quickies” off my project list. Here are the $4 brass lamps I started with. Very old and dingy. I always start by using a damp rag, along with warm water and vinegar to clean each piece. If I wasn’t using spray paint, and I wanted to keep the lamps brass, I would have just shined them up with Barkeeper’s Friend. In this case, I definitely wanted to spray paint.Continue Reading

$5 Planter Makeover

Hola! Hope everyone is doing well. I won’t make up any excuses this time, because I really don’t have any. I would like to say that I really appreciate all of you who have stuck by me through this unplanned blogging hiatus. I have been active on Instagram and Facebook, so be sure to follow me there. Let’s get to this DIY project!

If you don’t know by now, I’m giving my patio a much needed makeover. BUT, I refuse to spend a lot of money on furniture and decor that will be primarily in the sun all day. I live in Florida and it gets extremely hot here. No patio furniture is safe in Florida. I have a lot of projects and makeovers coming your way. Continue Reading

Bamboo Mirror Makeover

Bamboo Mirror Before & After I have a really quick makeover for you guys. As you already know I love me some Craigslist, thrift stores, and yard sales. Let’s face it, I ain’t paying full price for nothing!  Now the downside of me shopping at those places is that the pieces normally require some type of TLC. I have sooooo many projects that I need to get to. This one, however, was reallyContinue Reading

Having it All

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Nissan.  However, y’all know I have my own opinions.

What’s your idea of having it all? Do you think “having it all” means you’re rich or wealthy? Does it make you think about material things? Having it all has many meanings for everyone. For me, it’s definitely not about material things. I look at my life, and I know that I have it all. I’m blessed to have a wonderful family, that has grown (I’ll tell you about that in another post), I’m healthy, and I’m thankful for life. I wake up every day appreciating life, and everything that matters to me. Growing up in a small town, we never had much. My Grandmother & Grandfather worked hard to provide for us. The main things they taught us was how to love, respect, and appreciate the people in our lives.

Head and Shoulders
I’ve been asked so many times about my hair routine, and honestly, I really don’t have one. I try a lot of products and just stick to the ones that work best for me. When I was relaxed, I tried Head & Shoulders for my dandruff, and it worked wonders. Why did I stop using it? I thought my dandruff was completely gone, so I ventured out and started trying other products.Continue Reading

Perfume Collection

I asked you guys on Facebook if you wanted to see my perfume collection, and the response was YES! I took these pics about a week ago, and meant to edit and upload this post last week. I went out of town and forgot my laptop :cry:. As soon as I returned, I made sure to get this post up because I was very excited to show you the collection. I listed the names beside all of the bottles in case you wanted to pick up a few for yourself. As of late, my go-to scents  have been Theirry Mugler Alien and Balenciaga Paris. Continue Reading

How to Style a Bookshelf or Etagere

Bookshelf Styling1 Bookshelves can be used for a plethora of things. They are so functional and purposeful. You can use them to display a collection of your favorite things. They can also be used to display family photos.  I got these from Target that I use to display my heels in my closet room (tour coming soon).

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram then you know that I scored this beautiful vintage étagère on Craigslist for $40! I mean seriously, $40? I immediately Continue Reading

DIY Ampersand Art

DIY Ampersand Art5 I have a super simple DIY for you guys! So I’m minding my business, scrolling through Pinterest, when I see this image. How cool, right? It looked pretty easy, so I thought I’d give it a try. I used the ampersand sign because I love the way it looked, but you can also do letters, numbers, whatever you like! I am working on a hashtag art piece for my closet room. This project was so inexpensive and virtually under $3 per piece of art. I purchased the thumb tacks from the Dollar Store for $1 each. The canvas is from Ross. It came in a set of 6 for $6.99.Continue Reading
