Updating Your Home Office On a Budget

Update your Home Office with a few simple tips & tricks

I’m excited to finally share my office room reveal with you guys! There weren’t too many major changes in my office space that were done but I think the changes we made have been great updates to the space. I spend A LOT of time in this room so feeling comfortable and at peace while I am in here was important to me.

The first thing we did was give the space a fresh coat of paint. We went with Beach Glass by Benjamin Moore. I love this peaceful color. We also have our bedroom painted this same shade so our upstairs space feels cohesive.

The next thing we did was draw inspo from one of my favorite pieces in the room, the Oh Joy! Rug by Lorena Canals. This is one partnership that I am so excited about! We have a Lorena Canals rug in our living room and it’s by far my favorite rug in our house. I love that it is easily vacuumed or it can be thrown into the washing machine! The same holds true for the new line by Oh Joy! We went with the cloud design (called Happy Day) because I loved the neutral colors and fun design. I also felt this was a design I could move around if I ever want to put it in a different space in our home.

In addition to that we updated the window treatments, grabbed this new desk from Target, and just added some additional décor and items we already had to complete the space. I really feel like you can update any space by changing up the textures in the room. I also love just moving items from room to room to switch up the look of each room. I took a metal basket I wasn’t using, a tray, and my lamp and created a small end table next to the couch. One other thing that was very important was hanging my kids art that they make. I know they always feel very excited and proud to give it to me so displaying it something I always want to do. We have some framed in our playroom and I have some hanging in my space. I’m sure this isn’t for everyone but it makes me happy to see their creations everyday!

Updating your home office doesn't need to be expemsive! Sharing a few tips & tricks!

Staying at Legoland Florida Beach Resort

Best Place to Stay When Visiting LegoLand Florida

*A discounted room rate was offered in exchange for my honest review.*

Staying at Legoland Beach Retreat was high on my priority list when organizing our Florida vacation. I had seen amazing reviews and photos of the Beach Retreat and boy were they right! The retreat features bungalow style housing (designed to resemble real legos!) In between all of the bungalow style rooms is a small playground perfect for kids.

From the rooms, to the pool, to the beautiful landscaping done at the property literally no detail goes forgotten.

I’d have to say one of the biggest reasons I wanted to stay at the beach retreat was the rooms! Take a look at our room below. I loved that there was two separate spaces for the parents and the kids. This is a must for our family when traveling. There is also an outdoor area which we loved hanging out in at night or early in the morning.

The rooms also come equipped with plenty of legos for kids! My kids really got a kick of this and the legos that float in the pool. The pool opens around 9:00AM and closes around noon for a few hours. It then re-opened around 4:00PM for those wanting an afternoon swim!

The proximity to Legoland can’t be beat! They offer shuttles to get you and your family to and from the park all day (but it is literally a 30 second drive). I also loved the dining that was available right at the hotel. Additionally, we explored the surrounding town a bit and found plenty of other restaurants and shops.

We will definitely be going back to Legoland and when we do we can’t wait to hang out at the beach retreat! It it’s the perfect family friendly hotel.

3// A simple yet cute black dress (I own this in two colors, can’t beat the $11 price!) I think this is the perfect date night dress. The simple colors make it so easy to pair a statement necklace, shoes or bag with!

4// This yellow flowy dress is screaming summer to me! I think this is one I’ll be living in during the warmer months.

5// I am loving how popular the gingham print is this season! There are so many pretty options out there with this pattern. It really looks good on everyone IMO too! I think this baby doll dress could even work as a maternity dress or possibly pair with a cute pair of denim shorts.

6// This long blue and green maxi is one of my favorite finds from Forever 21 recently. I love the colors and the pattern of the lines is so flattering. The model has this paired with strappy sandals and I love that! I could totally see this being worn as a bathing suite cover up too.

7// Can we just talk about how stunning this long blue striped dress is? I have a few weddings this season and this one will definitely be making an appearance to one of them. Perfect dress to make a statement and would really look great on any body type! Such a steal at less than $60!

8// At only $16 this cute off the shoulder dress is perfect for spring and into summer. This little number is already packed in my luggage for our upcoming vacation. I can’t wait to rock this by the pool and into the evening. It comes in a few colors too!
