Dining Room Spruce Up With Rugs USA

IMG_6698

As you all know, I am slowly making efforts to decorate our rental home.  I can barely keep the place clean, but I have this idea in my head that if the decor is on point or more exciting, then I will make more of an effort to keep it clean.  We shall see.  One room that I knew has been lacking is our dining room.  This set was actually given to us from our sister in law cousin’s furniture warehouse store that was closing down 4 years ago!  Yup, we’ve had a TON of our same furniture for 4-15 years (some of it being from college days).  My husband doesn’t want to trade out our furniture until it goes bad as furniture can really add up and get real pricey!  So I’ve settled with that fact, but have found that I can color up or liven up the house with fun accents such as a nicely decorated table and rugs.  I’ve found a lot of great decor pieces from Ross Dress for Less, which I have blogged about here and here.

Here’s a little before look at our bare dining room table…

With Summer and the hope of consistent warm weather on the way, comes the time of cleaning out and reorganizing closets again, for me anyways.  A couple months ago when my friend’s came to visit us, they “shopped” my closet and they basically all left with a handful of clothing that I was ready to…

Because it is Spring and I’m obsessed with floral crowns and just all things floral, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to do a Mommy + Me floral crown outfit!  A couple of weeks ago, one of my favorite daily deal sites called Jane invited me to their Crowned in Spring event!  I have to…

Vivian’s little dress here is one of my all time favorite purchases ever for her, and there’s been a lot of them.  I purchased it when she was 9 days old from a shop called Bapribap, and I am so happy she can finally fit into it!  It’s actually a 0-6 months, but even though…

I am so excited to finally share a project I’ve been working on for months now.  I recently received the Sprout by HP, and wow this desktop is like none other out there in the market.  If you haven’t heard of the Sprout before, it’s a computer that gives you a unique, hands-on way to…

Because I fully believe in milking this whole week as Mother’s Day week, I wanted to dedicate this post to new Moms and I’ve created a guide of some of my favorite must-have items! Even though my little girl is already 8 months old, I still consider myself a new Mom, to her. We’ve got…

This Mother’s Day week continues with another Mommy + me outfit where we are matching with our florals, polka dot (me – pencil, her – maxi) skirts, and champagne/platinum colored shoes.  Can we stop a second and talk about my Talaria Flats?  I just received them a few weeks ago and I cannot stop wearing…

Because I just can’t get enough of matching with my little girl – we’re back with another matching Mommy + me skirt outfit!  Back during my maternity leave (that was a long time ago), I entered a whole lot of Instagram giveaways. And I WON a lot too. My doorstep was filled with packages daily…

This was my first Mother’s Day with my baby girl and I must say that being a Mama to a boy and a girl is just perfect. I feel like I’ve got one of the each, the best of both worlds (or the worst of both worlds), and it was fun to celebrate a day…

With Mother’s Day coming up, you will be seeing a lot of Mom related posts in the next week (more than you usually see them although you see them all the time already haha)!  For this Mommy + me outfit, me and little Vivian are matching with wearing hearts on our tops and pops of…

***This post was sponsored by Hallmark, but all opinions expressed and pictures are my own.*** Mother’s Day is one of my favorite holidays and it is coming up May 10 (you didn’t forget, did you??). Being a mother is one of the hardest jobs ever and I knew it best when I became one myself….

One of the most asked questions I get from people is “where do you buy all of Vivian’s clothes”.  I have to say, that I LOVE supporting small shops where I can get really unique items for her that not everyone else has. I mean I do love getting some basics from Target, GAP, Zara,…

It is pretty much my motto to lead a colorful life! I tend to love color in all facets of my life, my clothing, my children’s clothing, my home, everywhere!  When I first saw this mint peekaboo skirt on Madison & Sixth’s Instagram, I just knew I had to have it!  I love mint, I…

I’ve really been itching to spruce up our rental house as I think I mentioned this before, but much of our furniture and decor is from college or was given to us from free.  But I wanted to step up our game a bit, but stay kid friendly and not break the bank.  Because I…
