Redecorating and Recent Purchases

Moving to a new place makes me want to redecorate. In this case it's to keep the space light and airy. The majority of the furniture we own is dark and heavy, but with such a small space I need to change things up without breaking the bank. Here are a few recent purchases for the apartment.

The artwork was purchased online and will be shipped to my local Pier1 for pickup. I want to add this piece to our living room above the sofa. The sofa is a dark chocolate brown and I feel the artwork we have currently does nothing to bring character (or color) to the space. Once this piece is hung I'll find fun pillows and curtains to brighten the space. Doesn't hurt this mosaic was on sale plus a coupon code brought the price down even more! I'm always looking for a good deal. Keep reading for another good deal...

I would also like to find a beautiful wingback chair to place in front of the window for added seating and a cozy feel.

Still searching for a coffee table too...this is proving more difficult than I thought it would be.

Again, my goal is to lighten up the space and add character. I picked these woven panels to serve as decoration above our master bed since we've opted to store our headboard. I bought two panels and plan to hang them horizontally. The color is "champagne" so I may add more metallic touches with these lamps from Kirklands. If Pottery Barn ever has a sale on bedding I want to purchase this quilt in porcelain blue to break up the dark blues of our bedding. So let me know if you hear of a sale or coupon code. K? Thanks! :P

Recent purchase for myself include:

Kendra Scott  | Nordstrom | Nordstrom
I'm not one to spend a lot on something that's a fad...*cough* Kendra Scott jewelry. I think some of their pieces are gorgeous and have been gifted several pieces I love. That being said, a good friend (and loyal Lexi & Lady follower, you know who you are) told me about the 50% off discount Kendra Scott offers during your birthday month. Am I late to the party? I had no idea about this. Well, October just happens to be the hubs' birthday month so as his birthday gift to me I picked out these Alex earrings in slate. I wear a lot of black, white, and gray toned clothes so these go with a lot.

This dress is a must have! I originally tried in on as an option for the bachelorette party in New Orleans, but refused to spend $168 for it. THEN it went on sale for $100 and I couldn't pass it up. Wore it to our friends' recent wedding and felt amazing in it. Not only is it a sexy little number, but it has pockets! Thank the dress making lords...a girl could always use pockets to hold some lipgloss. Have an event coming up? Give this dress a shot. I had to size up, keep that in mind.

As previously mentioned, these Lesley boots from UGG have finally been purchased for our New York trip in December. They've arrived and fit really well. I purchased them in black since again...I wear a lot of black, white, and gray tones lol

And I'll leave you with an adorable picture of Lexi in her pumpkin shirt taken on Halloween. Hope everyone is recovering from their sugar induced comas, I know I'm struggling. Need to get back in the gym and back to clean eating. I see a lot of Juice Plus shakes in my future!

Until next post..xoxo Becca


  1. I saw my shout out! :)

    I gotta say, I went to Nordstrom yesterday for the first time and was scared out by the price tags. Sounds like I need to be looking for sales! Super cute dress, by the way. Yes....more dresses need pockets. Couldn't agree more.

    1. ;) I had to thank ya!

      Yeahhh Nordstrom can do that, I prefer online shopping with them. Especially since The Woodlands store never has the items I'm looking for.
