I haven’t talked much about it here on the blog (YET!), but we’re in the midst of giving our van a quick makeover so that it’s cute and comfy for our climbing adventures this year. One idea that I am so excited to come to life is the new paneling we installed because I want to wallpaper it! I don’t want to deal with permanent wallpaper adhesives, so instead, I’ve been researching removable wallpaper… and there are SO MANY OPTIONS. It’s sort of overwhelming, tbh. I don’t even know how many hours I’ve spent looking at the different patterns, so I wanted to make a quick and easy guide for you to help in case you’re working on a project, too!Continue reading “The Ultimate Guide to Removable Wallpaper”

I cannot believe it, but I am still under the weather from this nasty cold!

While nothing truly beats buying houseplants in person, sometimes it can be a struggle to find exactly the type you’re looking for! That’s why I buy plants online typically.

Here are a few of my favorite sources + tips for how to buy plants online.Continue reading “How to Buy Plants Online + My Fave Sources to Shop”

A few months ago (!!!), my good friend Claire Gould, aka GetClairefied, came over to teach us how to organize a small closet. Thanks to the rush of the holidays, I didn’t get a chance to edit the photos and video until now… and I am so excited for you to see this! In case you missed my post about the closet from a few years ago, my house didn’t have a SINGLE closet in it when I bought it. While renovating the bedroom, we used the Elfa system from The Container Store (which is 30% off currently!) to turn an entire wall into a closet for Sean and I to share. We’ve lived with the closest for about 3 years now and it’s been amazing. Ever on the quest to live with less, Sean and I worked with Claire to pull everything out, prioritize, and re-assess our storage habits! Here’s what happened:Continue reading “Closet Tour + How to Organize a Small Closet with GetClairefied (video)”
