The Broad Photo Journal Part 1


It's only been open for a couple months and we barely waited in line!  I highly suggest going to the Broad.  It's a great attraction with visually stunning art.  We all went on Friday afternoon because Romeo had a half day at work.  It was so gorgeous outside that we got iced coffee's instead of hot coffee.  And it's all about Coffee Bean lately.  Their iced coffee's are so much better than Sbucks.  That powder vanilla they use is ahhhh-mazing!  Anywho, here is my part 1 of the 2 part post.  Enjoy!

Tiny Desk Decor



HOLA!! Here is where I work!  It's not much but I thought I'd share just for now.  Where do you work?  Sometimes I take my laptop to the table and work there or I sit on the couch.  It's hard when you don't have too much space to work with so I get most my furniture at Ikea.  They specialize in space-saving items that are up-to date and stylish.  I try to utilize what I have when organizing and decorationg.   Then I add little things within my budget.   Below, I have marked each aspect with a dollar sign indicating what I spent from one $ (meaning the least) to three $$$ (meaning the most).  Here's a little about my desk...

SEW


I keep a sewing machine to do little things like taking in a shirt.  It gets hard to find clothing that comes tailored (especially fast fashion stores like forever 21) to girls like me.  This is the most expensive item on my desk.  $$$

LEER


I DO read believe it or not.  Even my husband asks me if I actually read LOL!  And I like pretty books on my desk.  The rest are on a bookshelf in my living room or on my night stand. As I mentione before (in a previous post), you can get free books at the library!  $

MAKEUP


My makeup brushes are also on my desk.  Theres a giant mirror to the left of my desk with great lighting.  I do my makeup there.   Plus, keeping them visible is a great way to keeping them clean.  You would not want to look at dirty brushes would you?  Most my makeup brushes are from Target.  The brand there is called Elf.  They makes affordable ones that get the job done!  $$

JEWELRY


I keep a few statement pieces of accessories on my eiffel tower stand.  It's so cute!  I think I got this at Ross for a few bucks.  $

HANGING


 I have a canvas image of the eiffel tower (which was also from Ross),  a calendar from the dollar isle at Target and finally a framed image.  The framed image is actually a magazine cutout placed in to an old frame I've had since high school!  There's a hashtag marquee that I recieved as a gift that adds some personality to my desk.  Last thing hanging is some paper flowers which are party decorations that I use for EVERYDAY decorations.  They were also a few dollars.   $







These are some tips I used when decorating my tiny space:


Utilize what you have first

Get creative with frames and images in magazines or print quotes to frame

flowers make great decor and brighten up any desk

find a focal point and work from there

create a color pallete or theme and stick to it!

less is always mas especially in tiny homes 


Desk is from Ikea
Sewing machine is from Overstock.com
Hashtag Marquee from Target


Thanks for viewing!!

A Father Like Mine





This might not be your typical post but I feel like it deserves just as much attention as any other.  It's my Dad's birthday.  He's not just any Dad... He's my Dad.  My hero as a child, my mentor as a teen and my friend as an adult.  I wanted to keep this short and simple.  I thought of all the little things that make up my Dad (in no particular order) and listed them below.

Current Shower Products



Scrub-a-dub-dub in the tub!  Hey guys. Happy Hump day!  First and foremost, welcome to my new blog! It sort of got a facelift. It should run a lot smoother now. Anyhow, I do a lot of thinking in the shower.  That is, whenever I get the chance to take one which isn't everyday.  As a parent of two small people, they dictate when I can bathe myself.  So with that being said, I thought I would share my shower ledge and the products that call it home.

January Favorites



Hey All!  I skipped December to list some of my top picks so here is January.  Really quick, I just wanted to say that I'm working on a new site.  This one takes a while to load and I'm really trying to zone in on what my weekly content would look like.  I'm thinking of two posts a week with one directed more towards Mom's with kids (like Me) and one for the non-baby Mamas (aka everyone else)!  I am way to excited every time I get a good capture with my
