The Little Ranch That Could.....

Hi guys! With time on my hands this week I've already began pulling together my ideas and materials for our next flip.  This will already be our third flip for 2016....not too shabby! We are definitely moving right along this year and don't plan on stopping this momentum!
In about 18 days we close on a small single family ranch home.  It currently has two bedrooms but we've decided to meet with our contractor Monday (well my husband is since I've got a little one recovering) to see how much and how complicated it would be to add a third bedroom and a laundry room.  The house is in a nice neighborhood and has a pretty large lot. I've also decided to finally switch things up and not use Greecian Marble Subway tile! LoL!
Here's a look at what I'm thinking! 
Floors- Home Depot Marazzi Montagna Natural Wood Tile
Cabinets- Home Depot, White
Countertops- Granite, Giallo Ornamental Light Granite
Backsplash- Merola Tile Tessera Subway Blue Smoke
Light Fixture- World Market…

"Live Life & Love Purses"

Mothers Day is right around the corner and one gift you can never go wrong with is a new Handbag, Purse, Tote...whatever you want to call it! Every girls bestfriend!  Show mom how much you care by gifting her a new designer inspired bag that won't break the bank! All these options below come from one of my favorite company's...ALDO! (and they are all under $50 SHIPPED!)

1.  Aldo Smile Tote Bag In "Bone".  I love this fun summer chic bag with its pop of color!


2. Aldo Granlaby Tote Bag in Navy. I mean cmon! This is the cutest bag ever! I'm totally digging the nautical vibes, say for some summer trips momma has planned! 


3. Aldo Bogard Tote Bag in Orange.  This bag literally looks like a certain designer bag that costs about a bazillion dollars! It caught my eye right away and I was drawn to the fun orange color.  I love this style purse because it can be used casually or dressed up!

Friday's Most Wanted (Vacation Edition)

Time for "Friday's Most Wanted" and since I'm leaving for a little beach escape today I thought I'd share some "getaway" items on my wish list!

How about this Laundry by Shelli Segal Swimsuit ?! I'm obsessed! I love how the lines and the colors compliment your curves!



I know I just shared my new adorable striped beach tote but this to me would be more of my summer "purse/tote".  This Frye Emma Tote is basically calling my name with all it's colorful detail and..well..obviously I have a major purse problem to begin with.

These Large Pool and Beach Resort Towels are the perfect poolside accessory this summer! Something about black and white stripes just makes me want to order a fun frozen drink from my cabana boy! :)


It's no secret I live in my straw fedora all summer but this year I wanted to switch it up with some fun floppy hats and this year I'm all about stripes. The Columbia Women's Sun Ridge Hat is not only super stylish b…

Crazy for Trays!

It seems like over the past year we all have gone crazy over tiered trays for our kitchens! They are such a cute way to display all our favorite home decor items and even more fun to change out for each season and holiday! (It's probably my favorite part of decorating!)  I have linked up FIVE of my favorite trays all under $100 that would make the perfect addition to any home!
