Inspiration for My Midnight Blue Bedroom

I change my mind a lot. I know. Recently, I painted my brown bathroom a great charcoal. And I love it. I also love the other gray room in my house. But now with two gray rooms, I'm not so much feeling the gray bedroom idea I had going on. I mean, I still like the look... but I don't want three gray rooms. 
So on to Plan B: Midnight blue walls. I love the way a deep, dark blue not only contrasts lovely with white, but also brings out the beauty of wood and copper or bronze.

We're a good twenty-two days into 2016, lovelies. So... how are your new year's resolutions going?! Among other things (like the usual eat better, exercise more, and clean out my closet), one of my goals for the year is to create good. I want to to spread kindness and make a difference when and where I can – not just in grand gestures (because those aren't always feasible on a tight budget or busy work schedule) but just in my day to day life.

Bathroom Makeover: Bland Brown to Bold Black

Every time I come home to my colorful abode, I thank my lucky stars for a landlord who allows paint. But since moving into the place over year ago... I've had yet to get around to the apartment's eyesores: the kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen is quite large, making it a big task to tackle. However, the bathroom is teeny-tiny – making for a perfect day-off DIY project.

Burt's Bees Lipstick That Loves You Back

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Burt’s Bees. All opinions are 100% mine.

I've been a Burt's Bees devotee since buying my first little tin of the minty-fresh lip balm in high school. Nowadays, you'll find everything from Burt's Bees balms to bath and body products scattered throughout my bathroom. (And I never go a day without the Radiance Day Lotion.) Mostly, the lip shimmers and lip balms have served as daily go-to products. But I've been missing something. Because, you see... I'm a lipstick girl at heart.
So my heart when pitter-patter when I glimpsed the new Burt's Bees Lipsticks in Target. And then it nearly skipped a beat when I was asked to offer up my honest review.
