I swear it was just summer! Now it’s time to get ready for the holidays. We’ll be staying home for the holidays so that means family and friends will be coming to us. Ever since I moved to Atlanta, family and friends have always come to visit to escape the cold winters of Chicago. I try to make their stay in my home as cozy as possible. Check out how I made the room warm, cozy and festive with the help of Kohl’s bedding and a few tips to help your guest feel welcome during the holidays.
FINALLY! Decorating my living room has been on my vision board for the last two years. I’m so happy it’s finally done and I love it! My old living room wasn’t the worse but it was just there, made up of items that I’ve picked up over the years. The first home that I purchased by myself at 26 was decorated to the nines. I was happy to host parties and showers for my friends because it was so nice. I handpicked furniture and decor just for this space. I basically kept those same items and made it fit into my next homes. We purchased our current home about 3 years ago. I love this house and I plan to be here for a while so I’ve been slowly trying to make each space in this house our own. The next stage will be to renovate the staircase, with a balustrade from Pear Stairs. But we are in no rush! My design style is Boho Traditional. I have a traditional home but I wanted to add a little Boho/Global flair to our space. With a small budget, I took the time to decorate my living room in my style and I’m so happy with how it turned out.

Summer break will be here soon! Entertaining both girls all day can be a lot of work but I’m looking forward to not having to wake up at the crack of dawn. It’s also a time to plan some fun play dates with my mom friends. Since my mom friends are tired like a mother like me, I’ll be serving a new summertime treat, Dunkin’ Donuts Cold Brew. As a refreshing pick me up, Dunkin’ Donuts Cold Brew is perfect for a warm day. Available at Walmart, I’m going to show you how easy it is to make a pitcher of Dunkin’ Donuts Cold Brew.
I’m still in organization mode. I guess you have to be in forever organized mode if you want to keep your house in order. I recently announced that I’ll be hitting the road with Dr. Miracle’s this summer at Walmarts around the country. Make sure you’re following to see where I’ll be next. With that being said, Mister will be on his own and we know how men are about finding kids clothes. I’ve been slowly purging and organizing the girls’ drawers and closets. Using tips from my girl Mimi from Unlikely Martha, I got the girls dresser drawers together.
I’m a little embarrassed to show my BEFORE bathroom sink but I know this under the sink look is quite common. Being the beauty junky that I am, and having products on hand for both Peyton and Harper, my bathroom cabinet stay out of control. Weird thing is, I knew where everything was. We have plans to remodel our bathroom but until then I need to get my life together. I just got tired of looking at it in this state. Since I’m still on my #OrganizedonFleek roll, I decided to make my bathroom more organized and functional.
