Girls Room Refresh

Girls Bedroom Makeover

Hello My Friends!!

Well, if y’all have been following along on Instagram you know that I’ve been working on this Girls Bedroom Makeover for my daughter over the last few weeks.  I”m SO HAPPY to say that’s it’s finally DONE!!!  Both Ava and I are over-the-moon pleased with the results!!  She just loves being in her room now!  And the best part…she’s even been keeping it clean (well, cleaner, lol) so she can enjoy it more!!

I love every detail in her room, from the wallpaper to the chandelier, from the bedding to the rug!  Each element has made such a statement in her room and I love the way everything came together!!

Good morning my dears!  As promised I’ve rounded up all my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks for 2020.  My favorite all around categories this year were shoes and comfies (both athletic wear and comfy casuals).  There are a few really great sweater options as well if you’re shopping for those.  I have plenty still in great condition from last year’s sale so I won’t be snagging too much in that arena.  If you are planning on splurging a little this year, I HIGHLY recommend the Barefoot Dreams cardigans (you really only need one).  They are a DREAM, literally.  The most comfortable, cozy, warm and snuggly sweater I own!

Also, a HUGE thanks to eBay for sponsoring today’s post and our fun bedroom makeover project!! 

Yay!! It’s FINALLY finished!!! We wrapped up E’s bedroom makeover today and he couldn’t be happier with the results!!!  (See my Instagram stories for his reaction 😂).  I have to say y’all, this was one of the EASIEST projects I’ve ever done!  Probably because there was very little paint or woodworking involved, lol.  The “hardest” part was the peel and stick wallpaper I added, but even that wasn’t hard…just sticky 😂😂.   Seriously though, this project now has me motivated to knock out my daughter’s bedroom next!

The Best Educational Games for Kids

 

It’s #Quarantine2020 y’all and I think ALL of us are doing anything and everything we can to try and keep our minds and bodies as busy as possible.  I know at least for me, when I’m keeping occupied and the kids are kept entertained, it makes this prison-like-sitch a little easier on all of us.

Now if y’all’s households are anything like mine, you have one (or multiple) kids who love school and one (or multiple) kids who do NOT.  That said, I’m always looking for ways to incorporating learning for the kiddos that doesn’t feel forced or overly structured.  Basically, less like school and more like fun.

Playroom Organization and Makeover

Kids Playroom Makeover & Organization Ideas

Y’all this kids playroom organization and makeover project was looooong overdue in the Cantu household.  Imma be reaaaaaal honest with y’all and let you know that my breaking point was when I realized I was doing waaaaay more yelling at the kids to clean up their mess than I was actually making the mess WITH them!  I was fed up with spending my time cleaning (or begging them to clean) instead of being there, present, in the moment playing with them.  I’ve heard it, felt it, and know it, but sometimes I still need to remind myself….these little years are fleeting and I want nothing more than to enjoy these few years where they actually WANT me around! (I know those teenage years are just around the corner.)  I don’t want to look back and regret the time spent worrying about the mess instead of enjoying it!
