Here are some things that I’ve been loving lately!

With life getting so busy, it seems like I never have time to shop! So I love just popping on Amazon when I know we are out of something at the house - this makes it so much easier when we run out of soap, laundry detergent, etc.! Here are some of my favorite online purchases this past month!

20"x32" Striped Fringe Bath Rug Black/White - Threshold™

20"x32" Striped Fringe Bath Rug Black/White - Threshold™: I love this classic black + white rug for the bathroom! It’s fun with the fringe, but I know it won’t go out of style!

Recycled Square Tapered Planter - Smith & HawkenA few weeks ago I asked you all on Instagram what I should use for planters for my front porch. I decided to give these a try! Hopefully they work! They are simple, but I think it will bring a lot to the entryway!

Decorative Cube Basket with Leather Pull 13" x 11" Natural - Threshold™ designed with Studio McGeeI am ALL about the baskets! This one is the perfect size and deep enough that you don’t have to see the piles of items inside! I love it for around the house, or storing papers in the office.


Curtain HoldbacksWith it being lighter later, I really wanted some curtain holdbacks for the windows. I found these to install over the weekend!

Everyone Hand Soap: We almost ran out of soap - so thankful for two day deliveries during the busy times! I love the smell of this soap and it’s made with pure essential oils!

Solar Powered Ceramic LED Lantern Black: I got this for the back deck! I love that it’s solar powered, so I don’t have to remember to get batteries! It will be perfect for when the boys want to stay outside a little bit later when the sun’s already gone down!

Wall HooksI’m still trying to perfect the entryway into our home and make it just a little more streamlined. I ordered these to hopefully help do the trick! 

Laundry BasketsI was tired of looking at our plastic laundry baskets everyday, so I decided to order some cuter ones! They always seem to end up stored in our room, so why not make them look like they belong?

BarKeepers FriendHave you ever tried this cleaner? It will freshen up your surfaces and give you space a clean and fresh look!

I hope you enjoyed looking through my purchases that I’m currently loving!
