I am OBSESSED with everything mermaid! When I was younger, I used to pretend that I was a mermaid swimming in the ocean. Now that I’m much older, I channel my love for the creature in a different way.

These goodies above are a cute and simple way to incorporate your love for mermaids into your home, heart, and life! Sport a shell shaped bikini on the beach, or send out thank you cards with a detailed fin on the paper. These items make great gifts for your friends or yourself!

This past weekend, I spent some time in Cape Cod with my family. Even though the weather didn’t cooperate as we would have liked, it was still so fun and great time spent away!

We stayed at a quaint Airbnb in Eastham near a beach. There was a beautiful roof view from our cottage of the ocean. I was able to get some sun in between the clouds, but the best day was on Sunday, when we visited Provincetown. I fell in love with the shops, the food, and of course the drinks! I definitely recommend visiting the area. The best food we had was from Arnold’s! The crab cakes are to die for! I could go for them all the time!

I also wanted to announce that my sister is raising money a second year in a row for Plummer Youth Promise. Since last summer, she paddles to raise money for the organization! Click here to support and donate. Every little amount helps!

For more adventures this summer, stay tuned!

This past weekend, I took my first “ski” trip up to New Hampshire.

Living in New England, I’ve never skied before, nor have I liked the winter, but I wanted to give it a try and surprisingly loved it! Even though I moaned and complained because the ski boots hurt like a b*#@$, I felt so at peace with the mountains and quaint downtown.

If you ever have the chance to visit the quaint area, check out North Conway’s downtown where the shops are the cutest and you can get some local goods. I’m obsessing over the raw honey I purchased and an almond oatmeal mask I got (which has been so amazing on my skin!!).

The weekend was so relaxing and lovely! I am already planning my next trip! Any suggestions?

Since the holidays have been over, I’ve been dying to give my place a fresher look. I’ve been rapidly burning all of my Christmas candles and switching from snowmen to vases and flowers. However, it can get tricky trying to decide what to switch out and even find the items you are looking for, but I have the solution for you!

When it comes to freshening up your space for a new season, I am all about switching up home décor and certain furnishings to add a new feel. Decorative pillows and blankets are an easy way to make a space feel fresh and like a new home. They are fairly inexpensive and can be changed as you go. I also will go and buy fresh lavender candles in bulk because the scent is so clean and will go perfectly at any time (even if it still looks like winter out.) Add a fresh new rug with vibrant colors or soft neutrals, a few large glass pieces, new bedding, and even accent tables, and your home will feel brand new!

The only problem is that I can never find everything in one place. I always have to travel all over to find exactly what I am looking for, but now I have finally found the solution. Furniture.com offers you the ability to find everything you need to spruce up your home for the new season in one place. Browse the type of room you’re looking to decorate, the mattress tab, and even my favorite, the home décor tab, to find items that you’ll need. Furniture.com will redirect you to the website to place your order, and you are on your way!

If you are looking for a bargain, like I always am, their new find local sales finder will locate stores in your area that are currently having a sale in what you’re looking for! It’s an easy and fast way to purchase everything you need to redecorate in one place and at home from the comfort of your own couch!

I have already found pieces of wall décor and decorative pillows I am ready to purchase, so I can make my apartment feel like spring, even if it is only mid-winter.

Check out Furniture.com today to find items and sales that you have been looking for!

Happy home shopping!

For many of you who have gotten to know me thus far, I am obsessed with home decor! My passion started just several months ago. Some days I will spend hours in Marshalls, Target, or Homegoods browsing the decor, bedding, or furniture, getting ideas for my room and apartment. Since the holidays are coming up very soon, I wanted to share some of my decor with you!

This was the first year I decorated with a tree! I decided to take the plunge and get a tree, not for the specific holiday or religious purpose, but because I love the warmth and look that they give the entire room. The holidays scream family, and what is better than decorating and getting a tree with your family?!

I got a great deal on a 6ft. tree from Target for $13.50. My theme was gold and bronze to stay neutral and go with the rest of my decor. I got a pack of fifty shatter-proof ornaments. I added on some glitter snowflakes, a few glass individual ones, and some meaningful ornaments like the Eiffel Tower and the “Our First Christmas Ornament” for me and my boyfriend. Instead of lights, I opted to add reflective garland and gold beads from Michael’s craft store, and topped the tree off with a gold, glitter ribbon.

I went on to purchase the white, fuzzy tree skirt from Marshalls, as well as the gold, scented reindeer. Candles have also been a must. If you are looking for reasonable, yet great quality candles, Marshalls and Homegoods will be your place to check out.

I hope this post gave you some decor inspiration!
