Three Simple and Price range-Pleasant Methods to Refresh Your Patio

My patio has been looking sad all summer long. It became unkempt with unwanted vines growing around the deck, dead plants and bland, boring furniture and a dull color scheme. I already had the patio furniture and umbrella, but with some accessories, I was able to refresh this space quickly and on the cheap. Read on for the after photos! Inject Some Color with Accessories By adding colorful pillows and decor, the space instantly looked brighter and more welcoming. Since the deck is brown and the furniture is beige and boring, I had a lot of opportunity to toss in whatever color I wanted. I was itching for a mix of red, pink and pops of teal. Change out the Rug My previous rug was so boring and I found the most beautiful red outdoor rug from Wayfair that I think pulled the whole outdoor space together. I layered the old rug and the new rug for a more bohemian vibe too. I just love the layered rug look. Add Greenery Adding plants is the easiest way to inject some life into any space. It’s why my house is filled with them. I love hardy, easy keeper plants like ferns […]

Summer season Adventures in Traverse Metropolis

I took my bra off and tossed on this layered linen dress that I bought last spring and still wear so often. It was the perfect, easy breezy thing to throw on to explore Old Mission Peninsula, just outside of Traverse City. Exploring Old Mission Peninsula Each year I’m at my client’s conference in Traverse City, I carve out some time to meet up with my friend Caitlin. We’ve been friends since I was 19 and I just love her! No matter where we live or how often we get to see each other, it doesn’t seem like time has passed by at all and we pick up where we left off. She doesn’t get out to the wineries often and so I convinced her to check out two, and she recommended touring a lavender farm–and we both got to try new things we might not normally do on our own. Mission Point On our way up the peninsula, Caitlin mentioned Mission Point–and I had never been there, so we drove straight up to the tip of the peninsula to see the lighthouse, dip our toes in the water and take in the sights. So beautiful and peaceful! Harbor View […]

Reasonably priced Swimsuits + Seashore Necessities To Pack

I don’t get to the beach often enough even though I’m just 1.5 hours from Lake Michigan and usually just 10 minutes away when I’m visiting my hometown which seems to be quite often–BUT I did plan a trip with my friend Ashley and I packed up my favorite summer essentials and debuted this new swimsuit–and had a blast! Finding the Right Swimsuit I’ve been struggling with finding the right suit I feel comfortable in at the moment since I haven’t been eating as healthy as I should. Summer is always hard for me and with dog fostering and a crazy work schedule–and a hot house without AC, I didn’t have time or any desire to prepare meals in a hot ass kitchen. So while I start to eat better and make time to meal prep, I wanted some suit options that I felt comfortable and confident in–queue the high-waist bikini bottom! This black pair from Target has been my all time favorite so far and just $17, I was surprised at how great they’ve been holding up and how great they fit. Summer Swim Sale Faves I also scooped up this set from J Crew on sale last month–and […]
