Spring home decor

I wanted to share some of the spring decor I’ve been eyeing. I find that light knit throws, linen textures and canvas accessories are all great options for spring – and I love how natural they look. I also love bringing in a lot more greenery for that fresh feel. Whether you’re looking to brighten up your living space or just need some new accent pieces, keep scrolling for the perfect spring decor finds.

Amazon must haves for spring

If you’re looking for the best Amazon clothing finds that look a lot more expensive than what they actually are, you’ll love these ideas!

So with so many options available on the site, today I wanted to share the best Amazon clothing finds that I came across.

Did you know that Michael Kors, Kate Spade and many other high end brands are all available on Amazon? How convenient is that!

Personally, I think that for now Amazon is the best place to look for apparel that falls in to the affordable and premium high street category. With Amazon you get extremely speedy shipping and more importantly, their core mission statements is to offer all items cheaper than competitors at all times.

Happy Spring!

Save or Splurge


If you been following me for a while you probably know that my shopping philosophy is to shop smart. Invest in classic, high-quality wardrobe staples and buy trendier items under the $100 price point. All of that to say that I do appreciate investing in real designer items when I know how much I’ll use them and how timeless the style or design is.

After getting requests for affordable designer inspired items I decided to do some research and I’m excited to share some of the designer alternatives and designer inspired accessories. I’m an avid reader of product reviews so you better believe I’ve read those for the items I haven’t purchased. Enjoy!

Home decor at unbelievable prices

I am a believer that you don’t have to wait until everything is perfect, or you’ve built your forever “dream house” to have a home you love, and that feels like home to you. Life is too short to be perfect.

I think the internet has given us a false sense of reality, where there’s no in-between. There’s that Pinterest-perfect instagram aspirational home you see online, and then there’s the reality of the home you live in. Which, for most of us, often has rooms undecorated, laundry waiting to be folded, and awkward spaces you’re not sure what to do with. I find that the ideal we see online often paralyzes us from making forward progress until everything can be perfect. But the real goal here is progress, not perfection.

And while I am a firm believer that quality is better than quantity, I also believe that style when it comes to both fashion and design can and should be accessible to EVERYONE. Whether you can afford to shop at Nordstrom and Restoration Hardware or you’re in a season where your budget only has room for Walmart and thrift stores; there are lots of ways to make a house a home.And my goal is to make it easier for you to see that this is possible for you, no matter where you are in life, and help you find great pieces no matter your budget. Today I’m rounding up affordable farmhouse pieces from Walmart.

How to make work from home a success

To successfully and productively work from home, designating an area in your home as your work area is a must. Along with creating a routine and building productive habits, you’ll also need an environment that helps you stay focused and get work done.

You may think that working from home means you need an office in a separate room (although that would be nice), but in fact you can make any area of your home your “office”. As someone who has been working from home for years I made a list of must have items to make working from home a million times easier.

Time to get organized

File Organizer

A file organizer is great to keep invoices, paperwork, receipts, and anything else you may have laying in a pile on your desk.

Planner

I’m obsessed with planning- I love how productive my days are when I plan ahead!

Desk Organizers

Regardless if you have a home office or are working from the kitchen table, a desk organizer is necessary.

Computer & Phone Stand

If you didn’t know, the top 1/3 of your computer monitor should be aligned with your forehead. Elevating your monitors keeps you from looking down and helps keep your spine aligned in a neutral position, putting less stress on your lower back. Having a monitor too low puts pressure on your lower back, causes your shoulders to round forward, and overall promotes bad posture.

The acrylic design makes it look like you have more space on your desk and gives your desk a modern clean look.

If you work from a laptop, this stand is great to use. I love using this stand when I need a change of scenery and want to work at the kitchen counter or out on the patio.

I love that it’s acrylic because like the desktop stand, this makes the room look less cluttered and it has a modern vibe to it. You can use it vertically sitting at the couch or even sitting in bed with it horizontally across your lap.

AirPods

If you don’t own AirPods, these are a must have. These wireless are such great quality, can easily pair to any device, has a charging case and is even waterproof. I keep these at my desk in case I need to hop on a call.

Phone Stand

It comes in multiple colors, holds almost every kind of phone, allows you to charge your phone while its resting on it and is a great price. The stand holds your phone at an angle you normally would hold it- it’s like having a third hand for under $20! Multitasking just got easier.

USB Hub/Adaptors

USB hub makes working not just from home, but anywhere so much easier. This 6 port one comes in multiple colors. Using one of these eliminates a bunch of wires hanging off your desk going into an outlet, and for an extremely clean look you can get short USB wires to plug into your devices.

If you don’t need as many ports, there’s this asmaller one that’s works just as well!

I really do believe that once you start caring more about yourself, the more productive you will be and the more work you can get done.

Some of my faves are:

Comfortable Slippers

I don’t like wearing PJs or sweats while working from home because I feel like that makes me less productive. So, I get my “fix” by wearing comfortable slippers all day.

Mug Warmer

This one is dedicated to all the mamas out there who haven’t been able to finish her coffee while its hot. Or to anyone that likes coffee or tea.

An Oil Diffuser

There are so many different oils you can diffuse and benefits for each one of them. Scents that boost your brain are peppermint, orange, and rosemary. If you’re new to oil diffusing,this is great- you get a 300 ML diffuser with 10 scents for a great price. You can use this in your workspace to boost productivity, in the kitchen for that fresh scent, or in you bedroom to relax.

Blue Light Glasses

Blue light glasses can alleviate eye discomfort, improves sleep habits, reduces glare, and can decrease your risk of macular degeneration.

Water Bottle

Keeping hydrated is important to get those brain juices going.

Most recommended Amazon clothing finds

Amazon clothing is notoriously hit or miss, so getting a recommendation or a seal of approval before ordering is always helpful. I summarized the MOST loved/reviewed items. A good rule of thumb is to choose items based on reviews specially when there are different sellers/stores within amazon selling what it looks like the same item but beware most of the times the quality varies depending on the seller.

The next best thing is to get a personal recommendation, this is where I come in. ..I’m here for you girls to test out and make sure you are going to get something I would personally wear & love!

Let me know in the comments if you guys find this post helpful so I can continue to share monthly Amazon round-ups going forward!

I  love that there are so many hidden gems waiting to be discovered! 

Restoration Hardware inspired Master Bedroom with Amazon finds

Restoration Hardware furniture and home decor has a European, rustic, weathered type of look. With Restoration Hardware pieces though, expect a hefty price tag. After digging around Amazon, I was able put together some amazing pieces that are very similar to the Restoration hardware style but with a wallet friendly budget!

In the photo above, I made a collage with the pieces you will need to create an amazon RH bedroom but without breaking the bank. I love the masculinity to this room with its weathered color and textures, I also love the glam look of the chandelier and the feminine finishes of the white sheets paired with the neutral linens and textures. Hope this post inspires you to recreate the RH look that we all love!
