Article Seno Media Unit: An Honest Review

I quickly want to say this isn’t a sponsored post, no one asked for my opinion BUT I’M GIVIN’ IT ANYWAY, haha. COVID has really changed the way I shop these days. One thing I’m doing more is shopping online. I definitely did my fair share of shopping online before, but not as much as I do now. If I can avoid going to a store, I do. But one of the scariest things for me to buy online, besides eyeglasses(!!!), is furniture. We’ve been working on our living room spaces, and if you haven’t read my saga of our living rooms we have had to buy furniture that will actually fit in the room. Which has meant I’ve been scouring the internet for the right pieces for our space. It’s a daunting task, which I thought was going to be fun, but was kind of wrong about because the choices can be over(and sometimes under)whelming. Tom decided this year he was going to buy a new TV. Since I don’t really watch TV before/after …

My $5 Lamp Refresh

In the midst of our living room saga, I have been slowly trying to decorate the front room space, and one thing I’ve started with is lighting. While that room has recess lighting, but I’m a believer in the more light the better. I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but lamps can be pretty steep. I guess I’ve always either bought cheap lamps — not even going to be embarrassed by that, Tom and I spent the majority of our 11 years living together on a seriously (and I do mean SERIOUSLY) tight budget up until we bought our home in 2018. We had a lot of $10 box store lights bought more for function than style, thrifted lamps and hand-me-downs that didn’t match at all. Ya do what ya have to do. I recently took a trip to Home Goods for some throw pillows, another thing I’ve never been comfortable with spending money on, to be honest. I found this lamp that looked like it could fit in with the scheme of our new …

Sunday Not-So-Scaries: August 16

Hi, hello Sunday! This week was a bit busy for me, so I’m indulging in my favorite new tradition – doing absolutely nothing all day on Sunday. What a gift. Last week Tom and I finally took the plunge and ordered furniture for our new living area space. I’m really excited to see how it’ll all come together and share it here. There’s nothing I love more than being at home these days, so why not make it the coziest place to be? A few things I’m loving right now: Our new gallery wall! I have been struggling with what kind of art to hang in our hallway and decided to make a gallery wall of old family photos. I love the way it came out. Shoutout to Tom for doing all the brainwork – apparently I’m not very good at math/measurements, but I think we got it down perfectly. Teamwork! I used these frames from Target, which came in a nine pack – the perfect amount of photos for our hallway. I’ve been daydreaming …

A Tale of Two Living Rooms

When we moved into our home (almost two years ago now!!!!!), Tom and I debated over which space would be our living room. He voted to have our living room in the front of the house, I voted the back. The ceilings are high in the back of the house, it’s out of the way (aka we don’t need to keep it tidy all the time) and the natural lighting is a bit better back there. With our friends on my side and my great persuasion, our living room went to the back. Win for me! As time went on, though, I had a change of heart and had to do the slow crawl back to let him know he was right, and we should give the front of the house a try. You have to be able to admit when you’re wrong sometimes, I guess.
