How to Revamp the Guest Bedroom for Summer Visits

School’s out! The kids are home and this is the perfect time for vacations. Friends and family that you haven’t seen in months are likely to come visit and spend a few days in your home. And if your guest bedroom is like mine – only occupied during especial occasions – it probably needs some TLC. While, I will admit that I was worried about what I’d do with out guest bedroom, I just followed these easy steps to get it looking and feeling cozy.

1. Pick Out Colors or Theme

This is the starting point, whether it’s a coastal theme or blue tones, it is important to have a clear vision of what you want for the space. Otherwise, you’ll waste time, money and can easily end up with something that you may not be happy with.

2. Find Affordable Bedding

Bedding can be one of the most expensive items in a room. So it is important to find pieces that look great, feel great – your guest will sleep on these – and look great. In our home I use lighter pieces like quilts and coverlets, because they’re light and can be layered with extra blankets if needed. I’m linking some below, including the style I have in our master – which you might have seen on Instagram before.

Happy Friday Eve! What plans do you have for the weekend? I think my weekend will be pretty low-key, since we have been doing quite a bit the last few weeks. I may even take a little break from Social Media, I think it’s needed from time to time. 😉 Palm Print is all the rave this season and this Palm Print Kimono goes perfect with a casual, dressy or even a swimsuit.

This gorgeous palm print kimono is from Betsy Boo’s Boutique. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw me share a jumpsuit by the same boutique. This and the jumpsuit are two pieces I can’t get enough of. So, you may see this piece styled differently, just be on the lookout. 🙂 As for the rest of my look, I thought I’d show off my new button cami, which goes with almost anything. And decided to pull out my peep toe booties, favorite pink earrings, jeans, watch and bamboo handbag. I’m linking all items below so you can get to shopping!

Bikini Bod: Get Ready For The Warmer Weather!

The worst of winter is over and spring and summer is on the way- exciting days await! Times spent outdoors with friends and family, travel, days out and working through your bucket list- what could be better. However something that fills many of us with dread when the warmer weather rolls back around is the thought of wearing swimwear in public. Here are a few things to consider if you’re already stressing!

Improve Your Physique

If you’re over your ideal BMI and don’t like the idea of wearing a bikini because of your shape or size, then this is something that’s totally in your control! We still have a few months until the hottest days of the year arrived, giving you plenty of time to work on your physique. A plan like the new wheygan diet can help you to lose fat while gaining muscle, a great combination for when you want to look good in a bikini.

Otherwise you could clean up your diet and hit the gym, or find any exercise that you enjoy. Something high intensity will work the quickest but start at a level you’re comfortable with and work your way up. Not only will you look better but you’ll be fitter and healthier too meaning the summer in general will be much more enjoyable.

Shop For Flattering Swimwear

Regardless of your body shape, the right swimwear is make or break your confidence. Whether you’re tall or short, slim or curvy, busty or flat or anywhere in between, you should spend time trying on pieces and choosing swimwear that’s right for you. Mix and matching will always give you more options than choosing a bikini set, for example if you’re bigger on the bottom and smaller on top how about a pair of boy short bottoms or a skirt bikini bottom with a string bikini top?

Shopping, Mix and Match. Swimwear, Swimsuit, Asos, Asos Bathing Suit, High Waisted Bathing Suit

Swimsuits or tankinis are good if you don’t want to show your stomach. And a swim dress can hide your stomach and behind too while it looks very flattering. Experiment with different styles, cuts, colors, you can always buy some cute cover ups if you’re still not completely confident.

Hello, hello! How is your Tuesday going? I’m still in denial that another week has begun and another month nearly ended. This pink romper though, it’s so bright I almost feel a little more cheerful. You can keep scrolling to shop similar items.

I love pink, then again what girl doesn’t. When I saw this romper, I had to get it! I love the little details, bow and ruffles by the thigh. It’s so breezy and perfect to dress up for date night or a girls night out.

Distressed High Waisted Shorts & Our Galveston Beach Adventure

Houston = Home! For six years now and I love it here! Oh the city life – though I really live in the suburbs. 😉 But it’s nice to have a major city close by, and even better to have a beach near by. I will admit that while Galveston Beach is not the most sought after beach location and its water may not be crystal clear. I absolutely love taking a trip our there. Just breathing in that ocean air brings back so many good memories.
