We’ve got our school supply lists in hand, shopping trip planned and back to school on the brain! So, I got to thinking, why not make a cute little back to school vignette? Who doesn’t love a good vignette? Super simple elements create an adorable presentation!
Hey you! I wanted to fill you in on some SUPER exciting changes that are going to be taking place around this little blog of mine! I am changing my name from Glamorous, Affordable Life to Farmhouse Chic Blog! I honestly couldn’t be more excited for this change!
Hey you! I haven’t had much time to work in my office lately, as a matter of fact, it was acting as a storage area for some furniture we were needing to sell for awhile. Needless to say, it’s been a neglected space for the last few weeks. But now I have my space back, and I can’t wait to get back to decorating it!
There’s still lots to do, but I wanted to share a few peeks with you all on the progress so far!
I’m incorporating some of my favorite fabrics, materials and colors into my design. It’s going to be a rustic chic feel, with pops of leopard (because who doesn’t love leopard!) Lots of neutrals and glitzy glam to dress things up!
As I mentioned, I’m really no where close to being done! I have a distinct vision in my head, and I want to make sure I capture every detail of it! With that said, what do you think of my space so far? What fun, details would you add to this space to make it your own?

Hi there and welcome! I’m pretty excited to share this simple, fun project the kids and I did this week using Glad Press’n Seal I picked up at Walmart. The days have been rainy nearly everyday here in Ohio, so I’m left finding ways to keep the little ones busy indoors! The great thing about this project is it can be done all year around!
A few things you’re going to need for this project are: a roll of Glad Press’n Seal, scissors, live leafs of any kind, kraft paper, stamps, ink and glue stick.
To begin, pull out and rip off a piece of the Glad Press’n Seal to your desired size. Lay it with the sticky side up. Grab a leaf or group of leaves you’ve chosen and press into place. Using kraft paper, stamps and ink, create labels according to the type of plant. Use a glue stick to hold into place. Grab another piece of Glad Press’n Seal, the same size as the first, and place sticky side down. Using your hands, push over the entire piece, leaving little to no air inside. Trim the ends and sides if needed, and voila! You now have your own little piece of botanical art!!
It’s amazing to think that a kitchen product could be used for so many different, creative things, but it’s endless! Using your imagination and creativity you can create anything! This is such a cool product because it adheres to nearly any surface!
The kids and I had a really fun time making these DIY botanical prints with leaves from around our yard! They can’t wait to make more using leaves from plants in our garden!
So what do you think? That’s easy enough, right?! What are a few creative ways you could use this product for more than just in the kitchen?
It was such a pleasure to have you here today! Thanks for stopping by <3

Kids are officially on Summer break, now it’s time to have some fun! It’s just a matter of time before the kids come to you saying “I’m bored”… at least I know mine will! To encourage their creative juices to flow and get them outside, I’ve created a short and sweet Summer bucket list!
I’m a firm believer that getting the kids outside and letting them use their imagination, keeping them active, all while making memories, is time well spent <3 When I was a kid I have wonderful memories of playing at my Nana and Papaws outside in the sprinkler, all day, you couldn’t pull me inside! Being the only child (in my entire family!) I had no choice but to use my imagination and make the days fun!
Whether you have multiple children or one child, doing at least one of these activities when you have some free time, is bound to bring a smile to your face and theirs 🙂 This bucket list is nothing spectacular, and I tried to keep the activities affordable or with no cost at home! I encourage you to get outside with your children and have fun! Make the most of these days because they go way too quickly!!
So, I want to know, what are some of the things on your personal bucket lists? I hope you all enjoy, and have a great summer!

Can you believe it’s that time again already? Time for me to share the fab pins of the week! I hope you had a wonderful week and are enjoying the beginning stages of Summer! We are soaking up every bit of sunshine we can and playing outside just as often as possible! Isn’t it amazing what a little vitamin d can do 😉
This week I haven’t worked on much around the house, I’ve been so busy with other things. But, I’m never too busy to be inspired! This week I’ve been inspired by simple home style! Sometimes the simple is best way to go! So come on, let’s get inspired together!
Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Hello there! I am so stinkin’ excited to share my daughter’s garden themed birthday party with you today! We couldn’t have asked for more beautiful weather! It was quite windy though, that made picture taking a little difficult, but I think I was able to capture the party anyway!
It’s no secret, you’ve heard me say many time before just how much I LOVE planning parties! Isabella was turning 4 this year, so I asked her if she knew a theme she wanted for her party.. Surprisingly she said a garden party and I was just elated! I knew right away I wanted lots of fresh flowers, berries and incorporating it all together.
I used a beautiful combination of white and pink snapdragons from Trader Joes, and the pink tulips and white hydrangeas were from my local grocery. I probably spend the most $$ on flowers, but I’m okay with that 😉 I snagged the adorable berry baskets with a coupon from Michaels! I saved the glass bottles from cream soda that previously drank (I love using these for fresh flowers!). You might notice the adorable burlap banner from Target for a cool $3! And yes, I did make the cake.. I was opting for the “naked cake” look. I am a lot of things, however, I am NOT a baker! It did taste good though 😉
I had a table setup for planting your own flower, and this also acted as the “thank you” gift for them to take home! The kids had fun with this, and it was super cute to watch them get their hands dirty! Stay tuned for the garden printable used, I will be sharing it this Wednesday on Just Us Four blog!!
Thanks for sticking around and experiencing her party with us!
