From a Merry CHIC-Mas to a GLAM New Years Eve! (Collaboration with Treetopia)

Hey Hey Hey!!  Can you even believe Christmas is over?! Thank goodness New Years is right around the corner to keep the holiday spirit up!  This year we are hosting a NYE party which aligned perfectly with my second series blog collaboration with Treetopia!





Most people I know are very cut and dry about when their holiday decor comes down.  Either the DAY after Christmas or they wait till after the new year.  I for one like to let it linger.  I mean, yes..I do put up my decor super early but believe it or not I don't get sick of it. Twinkle lights on in the evenings give me LIFE!  I will say that I do take down the outside decorations like ASAP.  All those cords drive me nuts!! Ha! Removing your Christmas ornaments from your trees and just letting them simply twinkle is perfect for NYE.  I also like to buy fun NYE favors (which are inexpensive) and stick them all around the tree! Before you know it you have a "New Years" Tree and it feels like totally different decor!

Mini Makeover (Half bath small changes with big impacts)

Hi guys! Okay so you could say this project was a secret because I never shared any of the process (which was hard because you know I'm an IG stories kinda girl).  However it makes the reveal that much more fun!

Our half bath downstairs was nothing exciting...yet it's the bathroom everyone that comes over uses.  When we moved in I was able to get my husband to at least switch out the light fixture and faucet to bronze and remove the plain builder ones.  After that all I really did was switch out the silver mushroom knobs to bronze and it stayed this way for most the year.  Just recently when I repainted the dining room and the kitchen island with (NAVAL by Sherwin Williams) I also painted the back wall in the bathroom.  
OF COURSE I have no before pics of this bathroom.  Well I have this one from a Charmin Ad I did during the superbowl...hahaha I know BLOGGER FAIL.  But you can get the idea. Brown vanity and builder mirror.
