iPad Blogger Essentials

Friday, February 10, 2017





Hey guys, I'm super excited to share these iPad blogger essentials with you today, especially because I've found myself using these tools more and more lately. Here are my current favorites:

  • Google calendar: I use this to schedule all of my posts, and also to schedule when I'm writing each post! I like to write blog posts about a month ahead of time so if for some reason something comes up and I don't have time to work on posts, I won't miss a Friday of posting!
  • Reminders: I've used this app a few times over the past couple of years, but lately I've been using it a lot more! It's perfect for planning blog posts!
  • Autodesk Homestyler: I've posted about this before, but it is my absolute favorite app! I use it to practice designing, and just to have fun with.
  • Pinterest: I'm sure everyone knows what Pinterest is, but of course, it's perfect for any home design-lovers out there!
  • Notes: The notes app on the iPad is so nice for planning blog posts, especially on the go so I don't lose any of my notes that I handwrite. 
What are some of  your favorite blogger essentials? :)


'Let it Snow' Painted Pillow

Friday, January 13, 2017



Sometimes it's hard finding the fabric you want for a DIY decorative throw pillow, so why not design the fabric yourself! Sew a pillow using plain white cotton fabric (see below for a sewing tutorial) and use craft paint to write words or draw designs on it! Since it's January, I chose to paint the phrase "Let it Snow" in blue, and add metallic silver snowflakes. What words or drawings would you put on your painted pillow?

I know, I know, I say this every season, but I love changing up my room decor for each season. But there's one thing I love even more than that, and it's decorating my room for the holidays! Aside from my usual winter room decor (see post from last January), I also love bringing in...
*String of lights over headboard
*Let it Snow pillow
*DIY Christmas advent calendar
*Mini Christmas tree
*25 Days of Christmas Jar
Be sure to check out the last few posts on iDesigns to see tutorials for some of the decor above.

Countdown to Christmas Calendar

Friday, November 18, 2016



With Thanksgiving having past, Christmas is right around the corner! One of my favorite ways to keep track of the days left until Christmas is with and an advent calendar, and there isn't an easier way to make one than this! Keep checking back every Friday until Christmas for more holiday and winter posts, too.

Autumn Bed Styling

Friday, October 14, 2016



As it starts to get chilly during autumn, there's nothing better than curling up in your bed with lots of warm blankets! To style my bed for fall, I change out my usual gray, green, and blue comforter for a plain white one, and use a Threshold brand knit blanket from Target to add those signature fall colors. As a throw blanket, I use a super soft Room Essentials blanket from Target that I got for $10.00 on sale! I made a 13x24 pillow cover with fabric from Joann's that brings in the colors of my room, and the colors of fall. Some days I like to put my Nate Berkus woven tray (also from Target) on my bed with a candle, a mason jar with flowers, and some books. A candle is a great way to really make your room feel like fall, even if you don't light it! I don't usually light mine because I'm too scared I'm going to forget to blow it out, but it still makes my room smell amazing! I hope you all can use these easy, fun ways to style your bed for autumn!
