A Mom’s Baby Crib Decor Perfection

Well, that baby bump is a little more than a baby bump now, so I think it is probably a good time to start getting the baby room set up :p I have been putting it off for so long because I didn’t want to jinx anything! I don’t know if it was all of my friends and family telling me that I needed to get started on it, or the realization that I am actually due pretty soon… or both that got me actually going on getting that baby crib decor and nursery, baby ready.

I like to think that I have a bit of a different style. I tend to stray away from the fashion trends that are going around. I like to take some of the trends and turn it my own way, or just completely go another rout… without looking completely insane! For my baby’s room, I wanted to do something really special of course. This is where my baby is going to be growing up, so I want it to be a place he or she will love, have fun in, and feel absolutely comfortable in. Because of this, I didn’t want to go over board with the colors, and maybe do something a little more with the patterns and prints.

My sister some of her kids clothes from Naartjie Kids, and I totally love them because they are a little different and not your typical kids clothes. When I found out they had bedding, I was pretty excited that I could stop stressing and putting off the nursery and actually have fun getting all of the room together.

We wanted to wait until the day of the birth to find out the sex of the baby. This does add a bit of a stress on what color we are going to chose for the baby room. When I saw that Naartjie had a gray chevron print bedding set I couldn’t have asked for a better option. Chevron is trending right now, but it isn’t something you see done for babies’ rooms. How perfect for me, right? chevron baby bedding

I bought all of the baby crib decor because I just loved it all together as is, and then I bought a couple of the extra pieces to go along with the room and tie it all together. After I had the room painted, furniture in, baby crib decor and other accessories, I was able to find a couple of my own pieces that just added a little bit of me and his or her family into the room. I totally love the combination of the chevron print next to the zoo print. They really compliment each other and really give this baby’s room a look like no other.

I am seriously way too excited to bring home the baby to his or her new nursery to grow up in! Please tell me about your nursery designing experiences! I would love to hear them!

So Many Trendy Baby Clothes at Naartjie

Naartjie-Girl's infant one pieceI have to admit that sometimes I get a little overwhelmed when it comes to shopping for baby clothes. There are so many different ones to choose from. I don’t like to get the expensive, name brand clothing for kids and infants because they grow out of them so quickly and let’s face it, babies can get really messy! I also don’t like to get things that are too cheap because the quality of fabric is not good for sensitive baby skin.

I’m so glad I found Naartjie. They have trendy baby clothes that are quality without breaking my budget. They also offer plenty of sales (make sure you check out their site every Wednesday for a new deal). Right now, you can get things from their spring line for up to 50% off!

If you have little ones, or know somebody that is having a baby soon, then check this out and see why I love it so much!

I’m Remodeling My Bathroom in a Nautical Theme…What Do You Think?

Now that I’m all done with my spring cleaning, I’ve decided to do a little remodeling in the house and am starting first with my bathroom. This is something that I’ve been wanting to do for quite some time and I’m really excited to see how it turns out!

blog-anchorI went online and picked out some decor that has a nautical theme. Growing up, we would spend summers at the family cabin and just looking at some of this brings be back to summers of fun in the sun and on the boat!

The website, called iluvmyboat, that I bought these from has a ton of super cute nautical-themed decor (and I have to admit that I bought a shirt while I was browsing around…shhh!) and I can’t wait to see what the final project looks like all put together.


These AR-15 Tactical Accessories Are Top of the Line

arMy dad has a serious hobby and he’s been into ever since I can remember. He loves guns, is a great shooter, and has quite the collection. I must say that I wasn’t always fond of this hobby while growing up because I think it scared a lot of boyfriends that I had in high school away. Now, I can say that in hindsight this was probably a good thing! I am older now and have taken this hobby up with him. Once or twice a month, we’ll go out to lunch together and pack up our favorite guns and head to the shooting range to do some target practice.

For Father’s Day, I’m planning on ordering him some AR-15 tactical accessories that he’s been eyeing up online. He’s going to be so excited and I have to admit that I can’t wait to use them as well!

Three Designer Leather Handbags That Are Sure to Turn Heads This Summer

SONY DSC Travel Luggage Plus-Summer2 Travel Luggage Plus-Summer BagSummer is my favorite season of the year. I love all things summer (except I suppose the bugs!) and look forward to it. Each spring, I get the itch to do a little shopping and update my wardrobe. This year, my main focus will be on accessories. I have discovered that I need to get a little more wear out of the clothes that I do have before I go get more. I can change the look on an outfit entirely just by adding some fun accessories! I found some really cute designer leather handbags.

I feel like these are three bags that are varied in size and style as well as creating a fun look with different colors!

What are some of your summer looks to love?
