Inspiration for My Midnight Blue Bedroom

A Beautiful Mess 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.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Create the Good . All opinions are 100% mine.     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.
