Rose Gold + Marble Bathroom Decor

The recent blush and rose gold craze has caught up with me. Which is somewhat shocking because for years I was someone who despised pink and wanted absolutely nothing to do with it. I decided a long time ago upon moving to a new, single bedroom apartment I wanted a white ruffled shower curtain (which I’ve loved the look of for quite some time) and that I’d choose other items around that.

I’m going to let you in on a secret that I discovered while shopping for some of these items. I have the Target app on my phone and pretty frequently browse items, favorite them, and/or place them in my cart. So when I went to Target after finding an apartment and was searching for some of these canisters and bath accessories that were in my cart on my app, I realized that my location services had discovered exactly what store I was at in Fitchburg and showed me what aisle the items were in that I needed. It also showed me when the item couldn’t be found in the store and how soon it would arrive if I ordered it online. Come on, that’s a “all hail technology” moment in my book!The room scent I have in my bathroom is Almond from Bath and Body Works which I oddly enough fell in love with while working a painting job with my Aunt at someone’s home this fall. I have the almond wall plug-in adjacent from my counter and the candle placed in a rose gold holder on the back of my toilet. Shop Almond 3-Wick Bath and Body Works Candle HERE // On sale right now for $12.95. Note, it is currently in a different, darker design than pictured.

Almond CandleTo accent my floating shelves, I purchased two of these small, contemporary white vases for $4.99 a piece from Hobby Lobby and light pink flowers that I cut down and arranged inside. Placed next to my favorite Amber & Argan body lotion from Bath and Body Works and almond room spray. Questions or comments? Post below and let me know what you think!


Pumpkin Planters for Fall

I spent my Saturday morning following through with an adorable (and extremely easy) DIY project to add some festive fall feel to my front steps.

Things you’ll need:

  • Two standard jack-o-lantern candy buckets (or more depending on where you plan to place them)
  • A can of gold spray paint
  • Blank paint and a paint brush (optional if you’d like to repaint the face on after the spray paint dries)
  • Scissors
  • Mums or fall flowers of your choice!
  • Potting soil
  • Gardening gloves

Set everything out together and start by spraying the pumpkin buckets with the gold spray paint at a far enough distance to avoid running (do not spray paint the bottom of the buckets yet).img_14332. Cut the handles off of the pumpkin buckets.  Touch-up holes around the handles with more spray paint if necessary. (Keeping the handles on while you spray the buckets provides you with something to grab onto while avoiding getting paint all over your hands).IMG_1434.JPG3. Flip the containers upside down and spray the bottoms.  Leave them for about 30 minutes to an hour to ensure they dry properly.IMG_1435.JPG4. Carefully separate the mums and transplant them into each of the jack-o-lantern buckets.  Use the extra potting soil to gently move the plant’s branches aside and fill in the rounded gaps.img_14375.  Place your new, shiny, DIY planters wherever your heart desires!  You can turn them so the jack-o-lantern faces outward leading up to Halloween and/or turn them around so just the pumpkin front shows-perfect for extending the decor through Thanksgiving.img_1447img_1448Take some time to unleash your creativity and let your DIY skills do their work!
