Hey all!  Happy Friday!  We made it to another weekend.

Here are some of my recent favorites...

1.  Smallwoods Sign.  When my parents were in town, my mom and I were discussing decorations for my loft area.  The nook area looks a bit different since I shared it in my home tour (I have since gotten a new chair and a new desk!), but what isn't different is the fact that the space serves dual purposes.  It's both my office, and home to my Peloton bike.  I had an idea of what I would like to do in the 'office' section, but I wanted to add something to the wall next to my bike.  It needed to be office-ish, since that is my background for Zoom calls, but I also wanted it to make sense for the area as a whole.  Plus, I didn't want to do pictures, because I plan on eventually doing some type of gallery wall up here, too.

Insert Smallwoods.  I bought a Smallwoods sign for my bedroom, and absolutely love it.  

After I was so happy with mine, my mom got one, too, when she redid my old bedroom at home.  She was actually able to customize one, and thought that would be a good option for up here.  Well, it seems like they have changed things since we both purchased from there (more picture options, less customizing options), but I did find quite a few options that I thought would work for the space.  I ultimately ended up with the one below, and cannot wait for it to get in so I can hang it!  Which, will be a breeze, because not only are the items great quality, but they are super duper light, too!

Life Is Tough

I think it's a great reminder for when things get tough, whether it be with work, on when I am trying to make it through a workout.  Or just when life is tough in general.

Smallwoods is having a sale right now, and you can get an extra 15% off if you sign up for emails/text messages.  My sign was already a great deal on sale, and then the 15% off basically gave me free shipping!

2.  North Star by Sherwin Williams.  The magic of paint!  My bathroom looks SO much better after we painted it this past weekend.  I absolutely love the color.  I keep saying this, but it's very 'spa' like, which is hilarious, because I have never even been to a spa.  But this color is what I would imagine.  Light and fresh and calming.  

3.  Fixer to Fabulous.  I am a sucker for a good home renovation show.  Over the weekend, HGTV was airing reruns of Fixer to Fabulous, and I got hooked.  They redo some really neat houses, in a variety of design styles.  Plus, I really enjoyed the back and forth of the couple.  It looks like there is going to be a season 2, coming this fall, so I better set my DVR!

4.  Essie Stitch by Stitch.  This Essie color is my go to transition color.  I think it for winter to spring and summer to fall.  It's the prettiest pink that is a bit muted, so it works when you want something a little more subtle.  Since I am already craving fall, I broke it out this week.  While I usually have toe polish on, I don't think my finger nails have been done since the beginning of quarantine.  And goodness, does it feel good!

  1. I’m going to look those signs up now! I love Fixer to Fabulous and am so glad it was renewed!

  2. The magic of paint is real - I love the color you went with and that new nail polish color is just darling! xo, Biana BlovedBoston

  3. I'm glad that you went with the Life is Tough sign... that one really is perfect for the Peloton and the office! And I just love that sign that you got for your bedroom. That is just the perfect thing to have in a bedroom!

  4. That is such a pretty nail color that really does work year round.

    1. Yes! It's a softer pink that I think lends itself to spring and early fall...when you aren't quite ready for the darks of fall but you don't want the bright pinks either!

  5. I totally NEED wall decor for my new house ... so this is PERFECT timing! Thanks for sharing! Now to choose what I "need"! :)

    1. That is great timing! Hopefully you were able to find something you liked!

  6. Love Essie polishes. Great color choice! That sign is PERFECT for that space. So beautiful. You have a great eye for design!
