The Pink Tumbleweed Rustic Bathroom Redo
If you all aren't following or reading the blog from The Pink Tumbleweed you totally should. They are a group of sisters from Eastern Oregon, also known as the Junk Barn Girls. Alison, who wrote this weeks post is super sweet and has the best ideas. She is currently redoing her son's bathroom and I am loving that she used wood tile for the bathroom counter tops. We recently redid our bathroom and used wood tile for the flooring but it never occurred to me to use it on the counter. Look at how great it looks! Head on over to their blog and check it out, as well as their other projects!! Also, stay tuned because I am doing a special project for a farm wedding (my favorite) they are planning this summer!

Rustic Bathroom Re-do

Jillian Michaels Detox Water
I have not being eating how I normally do/should lately and in turn, that has made my stomach feel crummy. I felt like I needed something to quickly snap my eating habits back to normal so for the past week I have been making and drinking Jilllian Michaels Detox Water, along with eating healthy, home cooked meals. If you browse Pinterest I am sure you have seen this pinned at some point. It claims to make you lose up to 8 pounds in a week. Honestly, I do not weigh myself (we do not even own a scale) and losing weight was not my intention on drinking this, so I cannot tell you if those claims are true or not. What I can tell you is that my stomach feels like it is back to normal, I have more energy and feel way less bloated fat&sassy. Here is a link for the recipe and instructions!

Bliss Body Butter- Grapefruit and Aloe
The weather is getting warmer and which means I can wear dresses without tights or leggings underneath and soon it will also be time for shorts! Winters in Central Oregon always leave my skin super dry, due to the cold, dry high desert air. Hydration and lotion are key to keeping my skin from not looking like an alligator handbag. I am currently loving the Grapefruit and Aloe Bliss Body Butter. It has just the right amount of scent, absorbs quickly and can be used all over. Often times, like around the holidays, you can find mini versions of them to throw in every bag you own.

Stella and Dot Wishing Bracelet
I am a huge fan of Stella and Dot jewelry, especially their bracelets. I like to layer a couple of them together with my watch to create one fun arm party. Sometimes I also like to wear them separate, like this wishing bracelet. I received this bracelet in my Bloom Workshop swag bag and it is soon becoming one of my everyday pieces of jewelry. It is simple, petite and does not get in your way, which is really nice if you spend a lot of time on the computer. You can choose from either an elephant (the one I'm loving), arrow, or horseshoe. They are also adjustable so they fit everyone which is sometimes I challenge with bracelets! Right now they are also running a Mother's Day Special. Go and check out Kara Garavatti's S&D Page to purchase yours! She also just started a blog, Styled with Life, if you would like to follow along!

Anthropologie- Inked Peonies Wallpaper 
One of my BFFs is expecting her first baby (a girl) in August!! I am so excited for her and can't wait to hold the little peanut! I am helping her design her baby room so I have been browsing anything and everything baby girl. I believe that baby rooms should be designed so they can last more than their first year, preferably for much longer! I love the idea of having a wallpaper accent wall in a baby room. Before you turn your nose up at wallpaper, let me tell you, there are a lot better options than there used to be. There are some really beautiful options and it can look really great if you use it in the right space. How cute would this inked peonies wallpaper look in a little girls room? This wallpaper could easily go last the way until they graduate from high school if they loved it that much!
