HomeGoods Haul

HomeGoods has to be one of my favorite stores for the home. If you are not familiar with HomeGoods, it is like TJMaxx and Marshalls, but for the house and furniture. In fact, all three of them are different branches of one company. That explains why you might see the same piece at all three stores, and all sharing the same prices.

I moved into my new house at the beginning of September,2011. Even though the hubby and I have been in that house for almost nine months now, the house is far from being complete. I still have rooms with no furniture, naked walls, and empty bathrooms. In the past week, I made a few purchases that I will share with you, in future posts, once I receive them. Today, however, I’d like to share with you the little things I bought from Home Goods.

 

I am so in love with the smell of Au Lait. It is so soft and relaxing. I got soap, hand moisturizer, and body butter.

I normally try to avoid purchasing books, but I was in the mood for some and they were informative and cute.

My house is missing so many pictures. Therefore, I decided to start framing some.

I thought these would look so cute on the tray in one of my bathrooms.

I absolutely love this. Once I saw this, I instantly knew where it is going to go and it made me decide on the color scheme fro my powder room.

These will match the powder room theme.

 

 

I will keep you posted on the updates around my house.

Office Room

Eight months ago, the hubby and I moved into our new townhouse. We knew that furnishing a house takes so much time and effort. However, we were very energetic at the beginning and got all the main rooms furnished in a couple months. After that, especially during the winter season, we got lazy and didn’t do any furnishing or decorating. It is spring now and I am tired of having the rest of the rooms used as storage! Having boxes laying around is not quite the prettiest scene for the eye; therefore, I decided to start working on one of the rooms this weekend.

The room has a full bathroom attached; therefore, it can make a great guest room as well. We’ve both decided on making that room into our office/guest room. It is the first room you see when entering the house, so I decided on a colorful and fun theme for it.

Here is my first inspiration board for the office room. This weekend, I want to hit West Elm, CB2, and possibly Z Gallerie for some furniture shopping. I cannot wait for the room to come to life!

I love Mondays!
Everyone starts their work week on that day, except me. So I decided to start this day with a delicious breakfast.
Plate breakdown:
1 egg fluffed with olives.
Half of an avocado sprinkled with salt and lemon peppers.
2 mini potatoes topped with cheddar cheese and scallions from TJs.
A slice of home made bread, made by my momma, topped with light cream cheese and TJs olive tapenade spread.

I hope everyone is having a great Monday!
