Happy Monday, boos!! I had a quick lil’ trip to Palm Spring last week and I, of course, listened to podcasts the entire way. If you follow along on my Instagram Story, I talk about my LOVE for podcasts on the reg. Last month I asked y’all for some recommendations too, which I’ve added into my rotation.
Today, I want to discuss my top 5 and why I love each. I started listening to podcasts last year and to be honest, prior to that, I had zero interest. I just didn’t get it… My husband, Luke, would rave about them and send me episodes to listen to, and I still was not jumping on the bandwagon. You may be feeling the same way but TRUST ME, once you find ones that speak to your personality, you will be hooked!! So what made me do a 180? I found Up and Vanished… Essentially it’s a True Crime podcast (think Dateline), where a documentary filmmaker starts investigating a missing beauty queen/teacher in southern Georgia… need I say more!?
My top five faves are all over the place. They range from business, spiritual, self-help, true crime and over course girl gossip! See below for a description of each…
Hello, boos! I can’t believe April is here – how crazy, right?!! I don’t know about y’all, but I’m SO ready for spring. Come March and I’m all about cleaning, organizing and giving spaces in my house a lil’ refresh! Today, let’s talk about my office!
A few weeks ago I shared my office wall on a budg and today I wanted to talk about the foundation pieces in my BABE CAVE – furniture! If you missed my art wall post – check it out here. As many of you know, I love a DEAL! Not only is my desk a daily budg-friendly find but it’s also on mega SALE – only $99! That is a steal! I wish I got such a good deal on it – LOL!! 😉
Ummmm and can we just take a minute and appreciate my BLUSH beauty of a chair… 😉 It’s SO good! I was on the hunt for a new chair this past month, and I came across this gem, which also comes in 5 other colors. I saw the price of $134 and had to do a double take… like, whaaaaat!! Under $15o for this beauty – done and done! I added her to my cart and she arrived in my home just a few weeks ago. It took me legit, two minutes to assemble her – just screwing in the legs! Before this pretty pink chair I used a french shabby-chic chair I initially purchased for my wedding 3+ years ago, and I have to say, my new beauty is 100 times more comfortable!! It’s really a-must if you’re working from home all day long. Let’s just say it’s been a GAME CHANGER…
SHOP MY BABE CAVE:
Hey babes!! Today is such an exciting day because one of my fave brands, Kendra Scott, is launching their CANDLE collection!! Ya’ll know I’m all about a cozy HOME, and what’s better than wrapping up in a blanket and lighting a delicious candle? Amiright!? I literally have candles lit in my home every single evening. I love the energy and calmness it can bring to a room.
Kendra Scott was first known for their beautiful jewels but has recently launched HOME this past year with; frames, trays, jewelry stands, decorative accessories and today adding CANDLES to that lineup. YAY! I’ve partnered with the amazing brand to show y’all how I styled out their beautiful home decor pieces in my LA condo! If you’re like me and a lover of crystals, rose gold and let’s be honest, anything pretty… these pieces are for you!! I personally have the ROSE GOLD collection of the tray, crystal and decorative box – all pictured below. Keep in mind they would make for excellent gifts – bridal shower, house warming, birthday, etc! Oh ya, and Mother’s Day is around the corner… hint, hint 😉
I just received two new candles from the collection – Rose Quartz and Signature. Once I smelled these babies, I was HOOKED!! I want to point out, I’m THAT girl with the ultra sensitive nose, (i.e. many perfumes and overwhelming smells give me headaches) and I’m happy to report, their scents are incredibly beautiful – light and sweet. I can not rave about them enough… like really, they’re amazing…

Hello, Friday!! I don’t know about y’all but I’m ready for some sunny SPRING weather! I just left snowy Idaho a few days ago and returned to rainy LA… needless to say I’m OVER winter. Good news, there’s sunshine in all of our futures!
I’m not one to jump on board with ALL new fashion trends. I think it depends on one’s own style, body type, age, etc. BUT a trend I am LOVING this season is, matching SETS!! They come in all different combos – top and skirt, pants or shorts. I’m SO on board! I have rounded up my favorites below and many are under $50! YAS please 🙂
The pink gingham set I’m wearing is an amazing DEAL from Forever 21 at $48!! Not only is the matching set a spring must-have but so is GINGHAM. Two trends in one outfit – check, check!! Please note I’m wearing a size, small and it fits TTS. I paired this look with fresh white heels and a straw bag, both must-haves for warm-weather. If you’re on the hunt for some new spring wardrobe items on a budg, head over to my Spring Fashion Finds Shop. SO many great DEALS…
SHOP SPRING SETS:
Hello, y’all! Today I’ve teamed up with one of my fave e-commerce sites, ETSY, to share my most favorite wall art on a budg. As many of you know, I have a small office space in my home, where I’ve created an epic art wall. From time to time I give it a little refresh and I thought spring would be the perfect time to add a few new items!
If you haven’t noticed, I’m obsessed with ETSY! I have found not only great party and beauty organization items but amazing home decor pieces too. If you missed my Spring Beauty Organization post, highlighting my favorite org items from Etsy, check it out here! I’ve most definitely spent countless hours lost in ETSY’s magic and I’m not mad about it 😉 Needless to say, I have come across numerous prints and wall goodies. See below for my favorite finds! AND remember, they’re all budget-friendly! Gotta love a good deal 🙂
Let’s start with the FUN part… selecting your prints, figurines, etc. As you can prob tell, my wall represents my personality V well – mixing my love for fashion, flowers, champs, halloween and of course, GOOD vibes w/ a unicorn head. Get creative with your space and let it reflect YOU! Many of the prints I have – “Like a Boss”, “Fashion” and “You’re Like, Really Pretty” are all MEGA deals at under $17. With a price like that, you can try a few different prints and see what you like. Once you’ve finalized your art wall selections, I suggest you head over to your local Home Goods, Target or World Market and purchase price-friendly frames. I tend to find great options under $10 at Homegoods. As you can see I mixed and matched frames but if you’re wanting a more consistent look, buy the same color and style…
