Homeware Haul & DIY’s

Hi everyone, happy Monday and happy February!  Can you believe one month of 2016 has gone by already!?  So far I’ve been a little too lenient with a few of my resolutions, and I’m going to use today as motivation to get back on track!  Today I wanted to share some fun homeware items with you all (a “haul” if you will), and also some DIYs that I made!  I made the DIY’s over Christmas break, and I’ve been so excited to share them with you!

I am so in love with this journal and pencil pouch from Kate Spade, and my customized stationary from Tiny Prints!  My obsession with journals and stationary is becoming a problem!


I was clearly in need of some new candles!  All of these scents are perfect for the winter, and I’ve been burning them none stop!  Bath and Body Works candles and Yankee candles are my absolute favorite because they burn cleanly and they smell amazing!!


Book reviews will be coming soon, but so far I HIGHLY recommend both of these!  Especially if you’re looking for inspiration, and tips on living a happy and healthy life!

Who doesn’t love cute mugs and adult coloring books?  Also this glass water bottle is absolutely gorgeous, it’s BPA and phthalate free, and it’s made with FDA approved materials!  I highly recommend switching to a glass water bottle if you haven’t already!



This was my project over winter break!  I painted all of these by hand, and I used uplifting quotes and pictures that make me happy!  I used cardstock paper and gold paint from Michaels, and I love the gold foil look!  I love making DIY’s, and I am obsessed with all of these!

For my calendar, I painted a clipboard with white paint and I painted the metal clip with gold paint!  I used a free calendar printable from DelineateYourDwelling, and I think it’s so chic and simple!  I also painted the pink canvas, and I hand painted the letters using white and gold paint!  This is one of my favorite quotes, and I love the pink in addition to the gold and white in my room!

I love using mason jars for decor, as well as for drinking glasses!  For this DIY, I took regular mason jars and I painted them rose gold, gold, and copper!  I’m obsessed with how cute these look, and they’re a really simple, adorable addition to any space you’re decorating!  Also Joanna Gaines is my idol (she always uses mason jars), and she inspires me in literally every possible way!

I hope you enjoyed this post, and I hope you find some inspiration!  I have some amazing posts coming up, so definitely stay in touch!
