Home decor | Bright Living Area

 

20160617_112728-1Coming home to a living space you created is so inviting. I love walking through the door and feeling completely relaxed and cozy. Who doesn’t love that? Decorating is one of my favorite things to do and I wanted to share how I style my living space to make it my own.

By adding a mixture of light and warm colors, it can bring a summery, cozy feel to your home. Brightening up the living area also really opens up the space.  My living area has a lot of black and gray with pops of blue. The blue accents add my own personal style and brings the cozy vibe to our living space. Whenever anyone visits they automatically say that the style “looks like me” and that’s exactly what you want!

My fiancé and I live in an apartment and our living area isn’t that big. I wanted to do something to make it appear larger so I recently painted my black coffee table a very light gray. It brightened up the living area and has made it look open. I took to my creative side and made a piece of art work out of dollar store puzzle pieces and paint to tie in all of the colors in the living space. It was so simple and it turned out pretty neat. Picture frames and abstract pieces add a modern look the space which I love.

Thirsty Thursday | Watermelon Refresher

IMG_20150813_230827

Staying hydrated is one of the easiest things to do, yet so many people are always dehydrated. Drinking plenty of H₂O is essential to staying hydrated and healthy. If you don’t enjoy plain water, check out the different ways I like to make fruit infused waters here.

Eating juicy fruits, like watermelon and cucumbers, can keep you hydrated. I have never really been a fan of watermelon because of it’s gritty texture. Blending it into a drink makes it bearable and it is very refreshing. This drink is perfect after a workout or if you simply want a refreshing beverage.

You will need:

  • Chunks of watermelon
  • Half a cucumber
  • Ice cubes

Directions:

Start by peeling the cucumber. Chop watermelon and cucumber into small chunks.

Add to a blender with a lot of ice.

Blend everything until it is nice and smooth. That’s it! The watermelon and cucumber are basically water based, so they liquefy pretty quickly and become this pretty, pink drink!

If you try this drink, leave comments down below and tell me what you thought of it. Stay hydrated!
