Master Bathroom Ideas

Master Bathroom Ideas

I believe that your master bathroom should be a luxurious retreat. A place to relax, be pampered and unwind. It should be utterly pretty. But how? Great question! I have loved creating a beautiful space in my own master bathroom and I want you to have the same experience.

I have collected the best master bathroom ideas I could find... just for you!

There are a few things you can do to make your master bathroom truly special. One of them is LIGHTING!

LIGHTING: Simply adding gorgeous light fixtures to your master bath is going to take an ordinary room and kick it up a notch (or ever two). This is actually true of any room. Lighting does amazing things for a space.

These sconces are just the most adorable things I have ever seen! I wish I had room for some in my bathroom. Don't even get me started on the beautiful exposed piping under the vanity!

This bathroom is obviously beyond gorgeous. The flooring is absolutely killing me! But check out the lighting. It's so simple but makes such a statement and does a great job of drawing the eye up and filling the space.

P.S. Don't forget the magic of candle light....

DETAILS: OK, let's talk about details. Keep it simple. Choose a theme and stick with it. Bathrooms get cluttered enough... you don't need to go overboard on the decor. I love soothing neutral colors (gray is my favorite) and pretty linens and some interesting details to complete the look.

This is my very own master bathroom. I painted it light gray and stenciled the walls with a silver glaze. This was one of my very first blog posts so the photos are old school... but I am still loving my pretty master bathroom.

I love how they carried the theme of mercury glass throughout this vanity. The pattern in the glass echo the patter in the hand towel and the rug... so pretty and subtle.

FLOORING: Now, this is obviously more work than just switching out some accessories or hanging a light but there are just so many gorgeous bathroom floor options out there these days that I had to mention a couple.

I a totally digging all the shapes and textures of tile that I am seeing around. It kinda makes me want to rip out all my semi-lame bathroom tile and start all over with something amazing... kinda. My favorite options right now are the wood-look tile (above) and herringbone tile (below).

Let's just appreciate how ridiculously amazing this bathroom is for a moment, shall we?

Ok, now back to real life.
STORAGE: Since we do live in the real world (dang it) let's talk about more practical things... like storage. I know, bummer.

Graham Cracker Pie Crust Recipe {with Coconut Oil}

Graham Cracker Pie Crust Recipe {with Coconut Oil}

Let's face it... pie is delicious. But it's not super healthy (obviously). I like to make my food as healthy as I can, even if it is pie. I mean, a girl's gotta eat some pie sometimes, right? I created this little recipe (it's so easy) and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. My favorite pie in the whole world is Pomegranate Pie. I always use this crust when I make it. Beware though, even though this is a healthier version, it is by no means low calorie. Ya can't win 'em all.

Healthier Gotta try this Graham Cracker Crust Recipe. Made with Coconut oil and sweetened with Stevia.

For one pie crust, you will need:

about 12 Graham Crackers
2 tbs of Coconut Oil melted (just stick it in the microwave)
Stevia (sweeten to taste)

How easy is that?


Healthier Gotta try this Graham Cracker Crust Recipe. Made with Coconut oil and sweetened with Stevia.

Blend all ingredients in a blender or food processor. I have one of those big fancy blenders and it blends it super fine and it's awesome.

Then place the dough in a pie pan and spread it with a rubber spatula (or your hands). This is what it looks like before you bake it.

Finally, bake it in the oven at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. You are going to love how amazing it smells. Then just add your favorite pie filling!

Twenty Affordable Rugs for your Home

Twenty Affordable Rugs for your Home

Rugs are very important to me. I recently got new carpet. My mom was over helping put the furniture back. She didn't want me to put my beloved rug back over my carpet. I indulged her and didn't lay the rug back down. I stepped back and took a look. I was not in love! She didn't want me to cover up the nice new carpet. I explained that rugs aren't for covering up carpet stains, they are for creating a space, drawing the eye, adding color and texture. Rugs are pretty and they can also cost a pretty penny. That's why I created this little list of over 20 affordable rugs to beautify your home.

A great list of super cute and affordable rugs. Must pin!

I will try to keep this list updated. Just click on a rug to view the sizes and prices.

Home for the Holidays Fundraiser & Bog Hop

Home for the Holidays Fundraiser & Bog Hop

Today I have a very special post for you. Yes, I have rounded up some really gorgeous hand-made Christmas ornaments for you... but that's not all! I want to introduce you to a very special family. I also want to give you the opportunity to do some good this Christmas season...




Imagine leaving everything you know for the possibility of a better life. Saving and working for 18 years to make it a reality. That's exactly what Priscila did. It was her dream to bring her little family, husband Marcos and young son Adam, from Brazil to the United States. They spent months filing papers, she left her teaching job and he left his career and came with only with what they could fit in their luggage. With only days to find housing and not knowing the area, they rented an apartment very quickly only to discover that it was in an "undesirable" part of town. Police are constantly in and out of the complex, knocking on the neighbor's door. Their small son isn't safe playing outside.

We have found them an apartment in a great, family-friendly area. The landlords are willing to pay them the $2000 it will cost to get out of their lease if they clean and fix up the apartment. However, they will loose $1000 of their deposit. We are trying to raise $2000 to help them this Holiday Season!  The money raised through this campaign will all go to finding furniture for the family and giving them a cozy "home for the holidays."


I just love the girls that are helping me with this little project! They are all posting something that means "Home for the Holidays" to them so please make sure you go check out their blogs. They are all so talented and beautiful!



Kristen: Capturing Joy  |  Andie: Maybe I Will  |  Aly: Entirely Eventful Day  |   Mallory & Savannah: Classy Clutter  |  Steffany & Melanie: Find it, Make it, Love it  |  Landee: Landee See, Landee Do

Meet the Tabosa Family! Priscila, Marcos, and Adam.  Priscila was a teacher and Marcos was a chemical teach in Brazil. She's pretty fluent in English while her husband and son speak very little. 


Adam, such a sweet boy, looks forward to learning English. He loves it here in the U.S. You should have seen him at Halloween! He gazed in amazement at the festivities.



Family is the most important thing to the Tabosas. They are forever thankful for any help you are able to offer. They are such a humble and loving family.


Wishing you all Happy Holidays from the Tabosa Family!

DIY Wood Transfer Sign for Thanksgiving

DIY Wood Transfer Sign for Thanksgiving

Here's the thing, I love Fall, a lot! I love crisp air and touch football at the park. I love the sound of wind blowing leaves down the street. I love boots and sweaters and amazing Fall sunsets. I also love the idea of celebrating gratitude... which is why I seriously love Thanksgiving! I have so many things to be thankful for... and to show it I created this wooden sign that I printed with my home printer! This project was originally posted on 30 Handmade Days.

DIY Wood Transfer Thanksgiving Sign.

You need a piece of unfinished, smooth wood (mine is 10x6.5 inches). I also used parchment paper and my home ink jet printer (this is the kind of parchment paper I used).

DIY Wood Transfer Thanksgiving Sign.

First, cut the parchment paper to the size of an 8.5x11 inch piece of paper.

DIY Wood Transfer Thanksgiving Sign.

Print the inverse image of the printable on your parchment paper.

Once it's printed  you have to act quickly and apply the transfer while the ink is still wet. Use a smooth object, like a credit card, to apply pressure to the parchment paper and evenly transfer the ink from the paper to the wood.

You may have noticed that I trimmed my wood piece after I applied the transfer. I wasn't sure what size I wanted it to be initially. But, like I said earlier, it ended up being 10x6.5 inches.

DIY Wood Transfer Thanksgiving Sign.

I added a coat of clear finish spray paint (like this one).  Let it dry and there you have it... a super adorable Thanksgiving sign. I am planning on using mine in a Thanksgiving-themed center piece.

I hope  you try this project... there are just so many possibilities!

Outfit Ideas for Busy Moms

I never want to look like I'm trying too hard. I want to look like getting dressed is the easiest thing I ever do... it's not... but that's how I want it to look. My style icons are Audrey Hepburn and Coco Chanel. It was Coco who said, "Before you leave the house, take a look in the mirror and take one thing off." Just like in decorating, editing is as important in dressing as accessorizing. It's easy to over do it. It's easy to under do it too. The happy medium... it's what we're all looking for.

Cute and comfy outfits for moms on the run. Fight the frump!

I'm a mom and I buy clothes that I can wear at home, on a field trip to the museum, to a meeting with clients, and for a night out with my handsome husband or girlfriends.

Shop this look...
I love clothes that are simple, comfortable, and stylish... not trendy. I love classic accessories like big black sunglasses and tortoise shell jewelry. On this particular day, I might as well have been wearing my PJs, this outfit was amazingly comfy.

Cute and comfy outfits for moms on the run. Fight the frump!

Don't get me wrong, I still buy into trends to some extent... but if I do, I mix them with classic pieces that will always be in style. I have a few key pieces of jewelry that I like to mix and match. Keeping my jewelry organized makes it really easy to accessorize.

I don't wear heels often. I am almost 6 feet tall and so I don't need the height (to say the least) but sometimes they are just too cute to pass up. I love these classic suede pumps.
