I’m really having a LOT of wistful feelings about phasing out of the Small Space Squad… especially because, through it, I’ve discovered some truly amazing and talented people. It’s really allowed me to open my eyes (and this blog) to different aesthetics, personal goals, and lifestyles. I hope you’ve had that WOW moment, too, during the evolution of this blog series. And I hope you’ll join me in one more WOW experience because the home of Tanika Rottura definitely deserves it. Let’s take a peek into her eclectic, brightly hued world!

9 Things of Note | August 2020

Joanna’s Things of Note from August 2020 (including the Untamed by Glennon Doyle, H&M dresses, AGOLDE jean shorts & more) #thingsofnote #shopping #shoppingguide #musthaves #favoriteproducts

August is truly one of the weirdest months I’ve lived through. Between deciding to move on a whim, selling our house, and buying a new one… woof. I haven’t done much shopping, except for a few summer essentials. I realized at one point that it’s been a long time since I really bought any clothing (especially underwear), so I picked up a few inexpensive, easy dresses from H&M. Also, I read Untamed, which was SO good. So let’s dig into my 9 things of note from the past month!

This past Saturday was basically a national holiday in our house: it was National Take Your Cat to the Vet Month! I’m joking about it being a holiday for us, but given how attentive we are to Georgette’s needs, it might as well be. What can I say — Georgette is my first pet that I adopted as an adult. She has a very special place in my heart. This year, she turned 12, which means she’s officially a senior meow! I teamed up with her favorite food maker, Royal Canin, to share the importance of taking your cat to the vet regularly, a few tips to help you take care of a senior cat, the food she eats now, and the details of a sweepstakes!

Today’s blog post topic is definitely un-sexy, but a must for any homeowner: lawn care! To be totally honest, I have always loved yard work. Gardening, removing tree stumps, pulling weeds… I love it. I’m weird, what can I say? But when it comes to actually growing grass, I always left that up to Sean. But now that our bungalow is on the market, we had to really focus on making the yard look as amazing as possible! We did a ton of research about sod, then installed it. So today I’ve teamed up with Amazon Home to share a few lawn care tips we have learned! They make it so easy to get everything you need in one place.

Our light fixture was gifted by Lamps Plus, but in case it’s not your style, here are a few more chic black outdoor sconces that you might love for your own home!
