It finally hit 50 degrees in Minnesota, which means it was time to take down the left over Christmas decorations on my front step. It felt so good saying goodbye to the remnants of winter! I realized that I was very overdue for some new front step decor, and was excited to shop for it. On my list were new pots, faux plants to fill them (for now, since its still too cold for live plants!), and a new doormat.
Like always, my shopping involved heading to Target!
I recently shared my holiday mantle decorations, but finally got around to decorating the rest of my home for Christmas! Getting a tree is one of my favorite parts of the season, even though its extra work and sometimes a huge mess! The first year that I got a live tree, I didn’t know to make a fresh cut at the bottom of it, and it completely dried out before Christmas. If you so much as touched it, a bunch of needles came falling down!
Now I’ve learned my lesson to make a fresh cut and to make sure it always has a lot of water (hydration is key for you and your Christmas tree!). I also finally got around to decorating my kitchen! I like adding a little bit of holiday cheer to each room in the house to make it feel special– especially now that we’re spending so much time at home!
My company recently announced that we would be working from home for another 9 months. After 6 months of making due in my at home office, I decided that it was time for a little bit of a room makeover. I wanted to adjust the room to more of a permanent office space that worked for my needs.
Before quarantine, I used my office room as more of an extended closet, guest bedroom, but also had a desk space. I rarely worked from home, so I didn’t use the desk space very often. Now that I use the space daily, it was time to adjust. I didn’t end up doing a major makeover, but a few tweaks made the space so much better for stress-free work!
Some easy updates you can do to make major change to your space include:

It’s been an emotionally draining couple of weeks (or you know, year), so this week I decided I was going to take a day off work for a little self care. For me, this meant waking up for a sunrise run, shopping the new fall home decor at Target, and decorating my house for fall!
It felt nice to refresh the space and to buy some fun new things. Each year, I try a little different look to change things up. I started decorating with what I already had to get a better idea of what things would be nice to buy to complete the look. Before heading out to the store, I take pictures of what I already have and the spaces I want to use them in, so that I can be more thoughtful and intentional with what I buy.
As a part of my bathroom remodel, I wanted new accessories to make the space feel refreshed. The color palette for my old bathroom was purples and whites, and I was ready for something new. The new look for my bathroom is mostly white and natural wood, so I wanted to play up the bright palette with a pop of accent color.
Everything I got was pretty affordable and sits together so well! Keep reading to shop my style!
