Magnolia Market Home Decor // CEO in Progress

Magnolia Market Home Decor

HGTV’s Fixer Upper has become one of my favorite shows, especially since we got the new Apple TV and can watch through the app. They are just the cutest couple, and their style is amazing. Magnolia, their store, has a great online collection, and checking out all of the new pieces makes me want to just […]

Rifle Paper Co. {Favorites} //CEO in Progress

Rifle Paper Co. Favorites

I’ve been full-on-obsessed with Rifle Paper Co. I had a contest with them a while back, and I loved loved loved the journals that I gave away, I almost wanted to enter myself! They have the most unique and useful desk supplies, everything from notepads to calendar to wall art and recipe holders. Whatever you need […]

Antique Festivals you must hit in Michigan

Antique Sales you MUST HIT in Metro Detroit

I love shopping at garage sales and antique shops. My favorite thing is getting great deals but also getting unique items with a story. It’s always better when an item is not only beautiful but also an adventure and has a history. I’ve shared my garage sale love a couple of times on this blog, […]

Pub Basement Remodel

Softie’s Pub: Basement Remodel

We decided to refinish our basement at the beginning of the winter. It was just kind of dead space, it was done, but the carpet was kind of icky, we just had random furniture, and we didn’t really spend any time down there. So back in December we decided to go for it and redo […]

Nap Time Essentials

Did anyone else know it was national napping day? Probably because of day lights savings time yesterday, I’ve been dragging all day desperate for a cup of coffee or some couch time, or both. It made me think of my favorite blankets and comfy sweaters. So here are some of my favorites from Target, hopefully […]

DIY Patent Print

I love DIY anything (I refinished our dining room table and chairs), but I also hate DIY sometimes (I paid someone else to finish the sanding and coating on the table because I was too impatient). Sometimes I just can’t wait the needed amount of time to finish a project, I love the instant gratification […]

Healthy Work Swaps

I’m on a health kick lately, not for any losing-weight kind of reason, but just whenever I eat like junk food I usually feel so slow and lazy – garbage in, garbage out! The main thing is when I’m at work, I’ve really gotten in to a food schedule, I’m sure you do too, and now […]

Favorite New Recipes

One of my new years resolutions has been to try different recipes and expand my skills in the kitchen. I wouldn’t say I’m a bad cook, but I have my set of favorite/easy recipes that I stick to, and I felt like we were in a rut before the year began with dinner during the […]

Rose Quartz Office Essentials

So Pantone decided that one of the colors of the year is Rose Quartz. Considering it’s freezing out and there’s about 30 minutes of daylight, I can’t complain about this beautiful color that is such a great reminder of spring! It’s so feminine, light and airy, I’m going to try and work it in to […]
