So, I went down an amazon review rabbit hole. And hours later, I had a list of shit that I all of the sudden “NEED!” Ha! Question? Are you a review reader? I am an avid reviewer. Not only do I read them, but I write them too. If I find something I love – I want to shout it from the rooftops. Let all the people know. This is good shit! You NEED this!

After my hours of review reading, here is a list of home items that I feel like I now need in my life:

{closet organization}

Anyone else still quarantine organizing? I’m fucking obsessed with getting rid of shit. Not typically in the form of clothing. Every once in a while, it just has to be done.

After my big closet clean that I shared on Instagram the other night, I’ve received quite a few inquiries asking how I manage to keep things so minimal.

Number 1 – there is nothing minimal when it comes to my clothing collection. Those words just don’t exist! I do know when it’s time to let that shit GO!

I think it’s a challenge we all {fashionistas} face. So here are a few of my friendly tips on how to keep things feeling clean.

Before we get started – I’m thinking about having a garage sale. Just clothes. Mine + Bay’s this weekend. Probably Sunday? Anyone wanna come? I’ll even make you a mimosa? Ha! For reals!

I’m bored in the house and I’m in the house bored (now this song will be stuck in your head all day too)

While we’re all home, for how long (who the fuck knows). I thought we might as well make a list of that annoying shit we never want to do. You know, back when we had busy schedules. Social lives. Seems like a really long time ago. Ha! All those things we put off? On the weekends I get really anxious from too much scrolling + refreshing news stories about Coronavirus. So, I’ve decided that I am focusing on what I CAN control and doing things around my house to be productive (when I get sick of scrolling + sitting on the couch + drinking).

 I know it’s so tough to stay home but while we’re all here, we might as well make the most of it, right?

And get check some things off the list that you’v been putting off FOR-EVVVV-ERRRR!

Planning some outdoorsy fun, since Charlie will be fully vaccinated and ready to explore with us next weekend. Daylight Savings! Praise. Longer + lighter days are ahead. SPRING – officially 14 days away. Blooms.

How about you? What are you most looking forward to this month?

It’s almost that time. I can smell it. I can feel it. Fall is officially here on September 23rd. Summer is my boo, but I think Fall just might possibly be my #1!

{back to school}

Tee | Shorts | Vans (BOGO 1/2 off) | No-Show Socks | Backpack

I can hardly believe school starts in TWENTY TWO days! Where did summer go?

As much as I LOVE summer. I have to admit, I’m ready for our regular routine. You know – the one where nobody wants to get out of bed. Then we’re both up fighting over the bathroom. Bumping into each other to brush out teeth. And typically running late. Ha! Don’t you miss that too?

Bailey has opted out of taking zero period this year, so we’ve got some logistics to still work out. The 7:15 am out the door was actually kinda nice last year.

But, what we do have figured out is ALL THE THINGS back to school gear-wise. From backpacks to teen approved lunchboxes. Vans, ONLY vans. Cute tops + accessories that you “NEED”

With the help of my very own 12 year old, we’ve rounded up her top picks for back to school.

{mini closet clean out}

Tee ($12) | Skirt ($20)| Booties sold out // similar | Sunglasses | Rope Bracelet

It’s Thursday friends. The HOT as hell weekend is almost here. Almost, almost, makes me not that excited for the best two days of the week after reading the weather forecast. 108 degrees. Sickening! We are going to head to the coast for a bit and get some vitamin sea. And cooler temps.

I was looking in my closet the other day. Had one of those “I hate everything I own” kinda days. Which is absolutely ridiculous. But, we all have those days, right? Next thing I know, I’m pulling shit out and throwing it on my bed.

And it got me thinking. Why wait for spring to start cleaning? I like + NEED to do it seasonally. And since the famous Nordstrom #nsale has me dreaming of fall trends, I’m ready to make room and get rid of some shit I really don’t need.

Scroll down for some tips on how I purge my closet each season. Pack away the things you wont need for a few months so you can really see the clothes you have + love. And make a list of items you need to fill in the gaps. Grab a good bottle of wine. And spend the hot ass weekend doing some much needed closet clean out. I promise you wont regret it!

Remember that one time I did the Marie Kondo Method? You can read all about it right here: {weekend notes} I recommend reading the book and doing some research before you take on a project like this one. Shared more about it here: {let’s kon marie} Or what about the time {i gave up shopping for 30 days…kinda} I sourced all kinds of great closet goodies that I have and love.

Things you really need to get rid of NOW……

Music + Wine

Before you get started….Put on some good ass music. This is no time for Adele! You’re gonna need some of that good mood music. And a BIG ass glass of wine. Hell, just bring the whole bottle into your room! Getting tips might make some purging decisions a little easier. Just saying.

The Skinny Jeans

And I’m not chatting about the skinny legged jeans we all own and love to death. Keep those sis! What about those jeans you’ve been packing around for years. Maybe even since…..high school? Those ones you once wore. But you can now hardly get one leg into? The ones before you had #hellakids. Yeah, those skinny jeans. Live in the present girlfriend and ditch those never-gonna-wear again jeans. Better yet, gather them up and head to Madewell or J.Crew. They will give you a $20 voucher for each pair of old ass jeans. Not matter what condition they are in. Then next time you’re in the market for new pair of denim…you turn it in and save yo self some money honey!

{let’s kon marie}

KonMarie hit Nexflix last week.  And peeps are freaking the fuck out!  Ha!  I have seen some of THE best meme’s and they crack me up.  I’m going to hit Goodwill this weekend…I bet they’ll be stock full of good shit!

I’m all about organizing.  Simplifying.  Decluttering.  If you don’t use it or love it….toss it.  Or as Marie Kondo says “if it doesn’t spark joy” Haha…to be honest, not much sparks a shit ton of joy from me these days.

Anyway, I found this January Organization Calendar and I’ve been following it each day!  It makes hitting all the sections of the house more manageable.

I’ll be posting each day as I tackle the January Organization List!  Stay tuned.

Here’s my progress so far:

Day 3 – Fridge //

Items used: Ceramic Egg Crate // SOMA Water Pitcher // Rubbermaid Food Storage 38 Piece Set with Easy Find Lids

Take out all the food.  Toss the expired or shit you don’t/won’t eat.  Wipe EVERYTHING down.  Even the shelves.

I cannot tell you how happy a clean fridge makes me.  TRUST me, you’ll feel the same way.  Then want to move onto the next thing.  Oh, and do the freezer too!

{treat yourself}

Life is busy and there are never enough hours in the day.  Girl, I get it.  We’re all busy AF!  Trying to keep up with kids, family, friends, work fitness…the struggle is real.  But, you just gotta schedule a little time for yourself.  No matter what it is.  Do something that makes you feel good.  Relax.  Rejuvenated.

Self care looks different for everyone.  Some think fancy spa days.  For others it can be cozying up with a good book.  Whatever it means to you, just do it.  Treat yo self!

Here’s how we practice self-care in our home……

Typically Sunday’s are our weekly self-care day for the week.  Bay and I do all the things we love the most…..
