Outdoor Courtyard Update

We have been busy with a few house projects, This courtyard outdoor space is one project we have had so much fun fixing up.

I have always loved this courtyard space ever since I first laid eyes on this floorplan. I really wanted to create an outdoor space that had the comfort of an indoor space.

Creating an outdoor space in Arizona can be tricky, the heat and sun can destroy so much out here during the summer and monsoon season. Keeping that in mind I kept everything easy to shuffle around, cover and store if needed.

I found these beautiful Lilac Vine’s at my local Home Depot and I’m obsessed! If you’re looking for an easy flower plant, this is a good option! It’s a popular one here in Arizona because it is drought-friendly! I’m hoping they will grow up onto our pergola once that’s in.

Big Plans//

There’s still a couple more big projects we have planned for this space that include: French doors, floor to ceiling windows to match the new doors, brick pavers and a wood pergola to cover this space to create more privacy and shade.

My Favorite Purchases Of 2019// Home Edition

I wanted to do a round-up of all my favorite purchases I’ve found for my new home in 2019!

Coming into this new house I really wanted to be intentional with anything I’ve purchased for it. That meant no more mindless shopping trips to Target or HomeGoods. I made sure I had specific reasons to make my trips and certain spaces in mind that way I avoided buying something I would shortly get over.

That being said, you can be sure I’ve given all these items some careful thought and have grown to love them!

Threshold French Country Mirror

This mirror I love so much I bought two! It’s so neutral and the 42″ x 30″ size is great. I have this in our lower level guest bath and in my master over my faux mantel.

Chunky Knit Blanket

This Treasure & Bond chunky knit is my fave! I have three in multiple colors for different rooms so it’s safe to say I’m a big fan! It’s a little weighted and keeps you warm but not to warm. They release different trendy colors often so this item is something I always check back on especially during sales!

Aromatherapy Diffuser

This Serene House electric diffuser is so good. I love the light options and how the soft white gives off such a calming light and mist. It fits so well with my bedroom decor because it’s so neutral. Another big plus it super easy to clean!

Jewelry Organizer

This is a must in organizing jewelry! For under $20 it’s super customizable and it looks so much cleaner than having a messy drawer filled with my jewelry.

Cravings by Chrissy Teigen 11″ Enamel Skillet Green

Love this piece for the looks and that it’s safe for stovetop and oven!

Yabano 4 Slice Toaster

I’ve never liked a toaster this much before! The fact that I can eat toasty croissants in minutes is enough for me but it also toasts everything well. I’m also a big fan of the stainless retro look.

White Modern Butcher Block Knife Set

I’ve always wanted a nice white knife set but didn’t want to spend a small fortune on one. I found these on a whim on Amazon and I am so glad I did. This set is gorgeous! Sits pretty on my counter and cuts my veggies and meats like a charm.

Stevie Coffee Table

If your looking for an affordable option to a chunky wood coffee table this is it! Urban Outfitters has this bad boy for $279.

Stone Lava Speckled 12-Piece Dining Set

Bought this set in white before we even moved in and for the price and quality, I was so happy! For $69 you get a 12 pc set of modern, neutral dishes that are great for any occasion. I ended up purchasing a second set and 6 months later they are doing great!
