New Room Color!

A few months ago, I repainted my room from turquoise to gray! I also added a new comforter (Bed, Bath, & Beyond), new shelves (Urban Outfitters), and a few new pillows!

Pinterest Finds

Friday, April 14, 2017

Like pretty much everyone else, I can get sucked into Pinterest for hours on end, just looking at fashion, interior design, crafts, and photography. Even though a lot of the common Pinterest hacks don't actually work, there are a few things that I've found to be super helpful on the site! 
1. Sometimes it's difficult to sort out the good sewing projects, tutorials, and tips wtih so many to be found online. Pinterest seems to have a really good mix of all things sewing, and I've gotten tons of ideas and tips by scrolling through.
2. As someone with curly hair, I never know how it's going to look when I wake up in the morning, so this Pinterest idea is a life-saver. If the curls are a  little bit crazy, I put them in a side braid and run my flat iron over it. When I'm finished, they're are much calmer! The best part is, this takes less than 3 minutes! 
3. I've been working a lot over the past year to improve my blog, and Pinterest has some great ideas on how to increase traffic, use social media, and everything in between!

Small Room Hacks

Friday, March 17, 2017

Having a small room can be hard, especially if you have a lot of furniture that you want to fit into it, so I've come up with a few ideas on how to make the most of a smaller room!
  • Storage Baskets: These can be used for anything, from blankets and pillows to books and magazines!
  • Nightstand alternative: If you don't have a lot of room for a nightstand, try a nightshelf! I use the bottom shelf of my wall bookshelves as a nightstand where I have tissues, water, a book, and a few other things I might need.
  • Jacket Hooks: In a small room, it's important to use every bit of space, so try putting a jacket hook to hang purses, scarves, and coats on behind a door.
  • Wall Bookshelves: I've talked about these before, but putting bookshelves on the wall is a really good place to store books and knick-knacks instead of taking up floor space.
Do you have any ideas for ways to save space in a small room?
