Nursery Essentials

I wanted baby girl’s nursery to be girly and comforting. I have gravitated towards all things floral this time- maybe because with Hadley, my first, I didn’t want anything super girly- so this time I’m making up for it!

IMG_7408.jpgSince my mom now doesn’t live by me, I couldn’t recruit her to paint on the walls like I normally have her do- so instead, I found these amazing wall decals! Aren’t they gorgeous!? The best part is- you can take them off and move them around with no damage to the wall! There are so many different ones on Etsy!

SAMSUNG CSCI also found this handy rolling cart at Ikea. I have two in my kiddos playroom in black– but thought it would be the perfect addition to baby girl’s room for all of her diapers/wipes/soaps/burp cloths/blankets- STUFF!

Hadley really wanted to contribute to Rem’s room, so I had her do some finger paintings for the frames (from Ikea!). Then I did the bright pink painting! It is so easy! I got a white canvas from Hobby Lobby- A tube of pink and a tube of white paint- some sponges, and a cup of water. I would then use the sponge to paint on the pink and then use another sponge to squeeze water over it to make it look more like water colors. It turned out just how I wanted it to- and it was super cheap!

SAMSUNG CSC

The super soft fuzzy rug was inexpensive and the perfect way to brighten up the room and make it cozy! Plus, rugsusa.com always has a coupon! Also, by far our favorite blanket for miss Rem has been our Max + Moose blanket. It’s your favorite soft tshirt turned blanket! Obsessed.

Now, I have rocking chairs in my room and beckam’s room- but I knew I would want one for Rem’s room as well- not to mention, one for lots of little people to sit on with me! No way Beck & Hads were going to give me space while I was holding their sister. They need to be as close as they can to her at all times. This was the perfect addition to the space.

Black Friday Sales!

You know from here that I will be hitting up the sales Thursday night in an attempt to check off some items on my kiddo’s Christmas lists- and come Friday, my daughter and I will grab Nana and head out for some shopping! The son and husband would prefer to occupy anything BUT a mall. Here are a few of the stops I will make in my Thursday/Friday shopping extravaganza!

You can find most everything in the above pics at the stores having sales, below!

Beckam’s outfit: old navy | My sweater: juniper lemons. | My dress: asos (see 3v3) | Beckam’s nursery animal heads: anthropologie. Crib sheet: lwph, | Couch throw, pillow, candle, mug, plates, serving board: anthropologie | Hadley’s jammies & kitchenaid mixer: target | My leggings: juniper lemons. Slippers & dyson cordless vacuum: target. Owl, tree skirt, grey pouf, moroccan pillow: west elm

Target. This will be my first stop. TV’s, BOGO 1/2 off toys, Dyson’s $150-200 off, Kitchenaid mixers $70 off, and 30% off all apparel, accessories and shoes for the family- it better be your first stop as well!

West Elm. When you walk in to my home, you can pretty much bet that everything you see is from one of four places- and West Elm is one of those places. They are having a buy more, save more sale this year! 15% off $100. 20% off $500. 25% off $1,000. 30% off $3,000. It’s the time to buy the stuff you’ve been eyeing all year!

ASOS. UPDATE: 30% off everything! Now, ASOS has not released their official sale announcement yet, but I could not skip them- Last year they did 20% off everything. I bought my Christmas dress, a New Years outfit, and my Easter dress during the sale last year. Load up your cart now and come Friday, apply the code (rumor has it, it will be 20-30%) and you won’t have to think about finding a holiday outfit for the next several holidays!

Old Navy & Gap. These two are some of my go-to’s for my kid’s clothes. They have some of the cutest clothes and at such great prices already- throw on the Black Friday 50% off EVERYTHING and it’s a no-brainer where I will be on Friday with a cart full of kids clothes.

AnthropologieNeed I say more? You know Anthro is a favorite of both Ashley and myself- and last year, they did not disappoint. This year everything is 30% off! It starts today! I prefer to go in-store on Black Friday so that is where you will find me! I already have my list of items.

And, of course, don’t miss the first ever Juniper Lemons Black Friday sale! 25% off EVERYTHING!!
* don’t forget about Jcrew! We posted about their sale here.

 

happy shopping!
