My Tips to Achieving the Masculine Glam Look

masculine glam

Growing up, I developed a “split personality:” part tomboy and part girly-girl. On a humid summer afternoon in 1997, you could’ve found me in my backyard playing in the dirt and climbing all over the 8-foot-high makeshift monkey bars that my dad built out of wood planks and metal bars. Thanks to the strength I gained from a few years of gymnastics, I prided myself on my athleticism and ability to beat any boy my age in arm wrestling. Then there was the girly-girl half of my personality, which was spent in my “office” (a purple Ikea desk nestled …

Whale whale whale, it’s been a minute. I’ve been excitedly working on creating my first blog freebie which I’m planning to launch within the next week or two and will be exclusively for my email subscribers (subscribe below at the end of this post)! I really niched down for this and I know many of you will love the content I’ve created for you.

Currently Crushing: Brass Accents from Target

A week or so ago I decided to take a casual stroll into my local Target (or as I call it; tar-jai), as it had been a few weeks since I visited and I wanted to see the brand-spankin’ new floor plan/layout changes they made. I entered through the rather unappealing produce section and started briskly walking (may have picked up a light jog) towards the other end of the store, where I could see the hovering HOME sign. I could equate the experience to following a rainbow to find a pot of gold…except this pot of gold was tangible. …

How Answering These Simple Questions Can Help to Establish a Color Scheme in Your Home

I can’t believe I’m admitting this but, less than a year ago when we were buying our house, I had decided that I needed a completely neutral home. It had to be filled only with an abundance of grays, ivories, and silvers to achieve that rustic glam look and the only pop of color I would allow were apples sitting in a basket on the kitchen counter.

How I Styled my Living Room with 7 Recent Amazon Bargain Finds

masculine glam living room

Spoiler alert: I thrive on finding and sharing a good bargain. It’s been instilled in my DNA since I was a young kid when I would scour the aisles of Dollar General looking for ways to make the most of the $5 I had earned from my allowance. To me, Amazon is today’s bigger, broader, and better version of Dollar General, where I often (ahem, every day) find myself falling into rabbit holes while searching for items I’m determined to find at the best price. Always lookin’ for ways to maximize that dollar.

Instant Room Upgrade: Jaw-Dropping Wallpaper

floral wall mural

I have a love/hate relationship with wallpaper. I truly believe it has a place in virtually any room and I love the look of a rich, elegant design once it’s on the wall. It’s one of those “instant room enhancements.” But when it comes to removing it, I’d rather be dragged in a bikini through desert full of nails, and I don’t mean that lightly. I destroyed one of our bathrooms a few months ago while attempting to take down old wallpaper (that wasn’t put on properly in the first place) and long story short – we need a …
