How to Balance Jewelry

I found the prettiest rug for Emily’s room and I have to admit that it makes me so happy to walk past her room and see this rug. It really finishes off the space nicely! We’re having her room painted soon, taking down the curtain rod, and adding a little bit more wall decor/shelving but otherwise her room is very close to being complete!

I shared links to as many things as I could find in her room but a lot of the items are quite old and have been used for both of the boys as well. Justin and I bought a nursery set from Pottery Barn when I was pregnant with David and I’m so glad we did. The dresser, changing tabletop, and the crib is still in fantastic shape. The quality is what I would expect for the price and I’m planning on using the items as long as possible. The changing table topper can be easily removed without making it obvious that there was one on the dresser at all, so I imagine Emily will have that dresser for most or all of her childhood. Changing out the knobs would be an easy way to make the dresser look a bit more modern but for now, it’s perfect.

Let me just take a moment and give Wayfair a shout out.  I’ve had to buy a lot of new rugs/furniture for this house. This is not sponsored but the majority has come from Wayfair and I’ve had such a great experience. Their shipping speed is fast, the items come well packaged, and we even have had a wonderful experience with the “delivery and set up” offer that is available on some purchases when we got the guest bedroom furniture.

I read the reviews about items before I buy them as I find them to be very helpful and generally spot-on. So if you are in the market for any home-related items, I’d recommend checking out Wayfair.

A few other links + loves:

I’ve purchased 2 colors of this waffle tank from Amazon. It’s a great throw on, casual shirt that is very lightweight. It can easily be snagged so keep that in mind but the price point is quite low!

I recently got this bra and it is so extremely comfortable. Natori bra’s just work well for my shape and needs, and while this bralette doesn’t offer as much support as a traditional cup bra would, it’s very soft, breathable, and comfortable on a day you want to wear a light, soft bra.

If you are in need of a cutting board, look at how cool this one is. The story behind it is very heart-warming and also sad, but it’s so cool to see this family continuing their father’s dream!

I love Mara’s round-up of affordable coin necklaces!

I love a white cami and this round-up of a few plain white ones is helpful if you are in the market!

That rug is spectacular! Recently bought curtains from Wayfair and they’re great! Plan on buying more from them when my family room is finished.

The curtain rods look great!! Adding curtains would add a lot of beautiful detail. Also some blackout curtains might help with those 5:30 am wake ups! 😉
