Friday Little Love Moments : 2/24

It’s late but I am still within the time for another Friday Little Love Moments! I missed last week and didn’t realize until two days later. I felt very sick that night and headed to bed without thinking of what I still had left to do. I am sick with a cold that everyone here seems to have but I didn’t want to miss another posting. My week has been calm for the most part. We all seem to be under the weather so it’s been semi low key. I almost have the new painted bedroom all in order. I should have it all done by tomorrow with the rearragment. My pillows & duvet cover came from H&M and I am so thankful for that because my bed is so cozy at the moment – which makes this cold slightly easier to handle. For the price and material it’s a great deal. They also seem to offer a lot of codes to get a deal which is fantastic. I know where I am purchasing any future bedding or home decor from. What I am most grateful for this week is haivng the opportunity to connect with so many people across the board for work. We are almost at 11,000 in our fundraiser for the app that is designed to help improve empathy skills. I am really proud of what we have accomplished so far and I am very excited about the future of it. I’ll attach the link below if you are interested in donating. I look at how far it’s come and what we can possibly achieve with it and it’s all very inspiring. I’m off to snuggle in some blankets but I hope you all enjoy a beautiful weekend. Thanks for reading!

Just a quick posting.

Life could have easily pulled me down this week. There were some moments where I could have been on the brink of chaos but I didn’t let it come to that. I didn’t allow myself to go under with what was happening around me and that’s kind of new for me. Did I feel it? Yes, of course. I’m still me but it didn’t become my every waking thought. I had to feel what I felt for a few minutes and then focus on all the good still going on. Something as simple as painting. I had this idea last week to redo the color of my walls and never did I think I would. It was just an idea that popped in my head. They happen all the time and for a lot of them I will get excited about it and then a day later I am moving on from the thought. Here we are a week later and I am sitting in my freshly painted surroundings. It’s a great feeling and something I want to follow through with this year. I can’t ideas fall to the waist side ( well unless it’s something like eating non stop for a day )  but ideas that make me excited about planning something. In certain aspects of my life I have lost control in planning so instead I will try and plan what I can.

Friday Little Love Moments : 2/10

Good evening! Another week has gone by and I am so pumped for the weekend to be here. We got hit with a snow storm yesterday that kept us indoors. Here I was saying that I am glad that I didn’t have any painting left to do with the roller because of my arms and then I had to shovel mounds of snow. I’m hoping to have after photos of the new room next week up. I just ordered a new duvet from H&M so I am waiting on that to snap some pics. I love it though. I can’t believe I managed to paint it by myself with breaking a hip on the stool. I’m so anxious about hanging anything back up on the walls because I was to preserve the surface for as long as I can after all that work. I do have to get some paint chips off the floor because apparently the tarp I used was not the greatest. I’ll be posting a tips collection about what not to do while painting and methods that helped me survive the process. It may not seem like a big deal to paint a room but for me it is because I actually went ahead with it. I’m trying to make this year more about following through when I have an idea instead of pushing it to the side. Doing well so far! How are you guys doing?


Friday Little Love Moments : 2/3


I am exhausted but I couldn’t miss a post! I’ve been repainting the room and i am so beyond fed up with paint & rollers & masking tape. I’m too short for this nonsense. I can’t move my stuff out so I’ve been working around it which has been a slight issue. I’d be done way faster but hey, what can what do. I hope to be finished tomorrow but let’s see if that works. I have been sleeping on the floor with blankets which I did all the time as a kid but my back is not cut out for it anymore. I can’t wait to get everything back in order! Hopefully, this paint job will be worth it. I did paint while naked * i know I know * but I couldn’t find an old shirt to work in and it was so warm. Let’s just say though that I have paint in places paint should never be. I’ll have to make a blog post about what not to do when painting because I’ll have plenty of tips to go around. That’s been my week so far! Hope you all are having a beautiful & safe week!!

Friday Little Love Moments : 1/20

It’s been a long day, my friends. I woke up in the middle of the night feeling like I was on fire with the biggest stomach pain and it’s been lasting throughout the hours. I feel very achy but I am sipping on ginger ale and hoping for the best. This week has been weird. Someone I knew passed away last weekend and even though the situation is complex it still is an odd feeling to know someone is never coming back. It reinforces that you’ve got to make every second count with those you love. I won’t linger on a low note because a lot of great things happened this week. I received the planner I had won in the contest. It’s by a company called Start Planner that sells planners & other accessories to go along. It is so cute! Just the packaging alone had me wrapped up. I really love it. It has various sections and inspirational quotes along the way. If you want to see what it looks like you can go on my instagram because I of course had to take a photo of it asap. I wasn’t much for planning before because so many things tend to go awry but it’s been really helpful so far in this stage in my life. I love setting little goals to keep me inspired for the year. The reason behind me evening winning was the comment I submitted about wanting to change the way I handle health issues this year. I’ve been slacking in making appointments because I can feel defeated at times. I absolutely hate finding out that something isn’t working or that we aren’t sure of what to try next so I settle. I live in pain instead of keeping at it and finding another doctor to help guide me. I have to remember that things aren’t always going to work and it’s a trial & error process but in order to ensure a better life you have to do these things to get there. I now have a appointment date set in the planner to go check back on my knee pain. For some reason it has progressively gotten worse over the last week. I could barely stand yesterday without wincing in pain. There has to be more to the story that we are missing so even though I am on a waiting list for the specialist, I am going to check in with someone else in the meantime. Don’t ever be afraid of putting yourself first sometimes. Your health is crucial and it has to be top priority. It won’t get better just because you push it aside. It will linger and the more we delay the worse off it can be. No more! That’s my speech for the week 🙂 & ps. I want to reaffirm more than ever on this blog that if you are ever feeling down or out of sorts that I am always here to listen. Leave a comment, send an email, write to me on instagram. I will be there to listen.


Have a safe and beautiful weekend!

The Truth About Pallet Beds


If you are like me and surf pinterest you’ve probably come across a few diy projects you want to test out for yourself. That’s how I got the idea to put together a bed made out of pallet wood. I’m surprised I actually went through with considering how big of a project it is but here I am a few months later with a white painted pallet bed. I’ve already posted the step by step process on how to achieve the look but I wanted to do an update on how life is going since switching out my old ikea bed frame for the new handmade project.

If you are someone who enjoys switching in and out furniture pieces or rearranging your bedroom from time to time I would think very carefully before proceeding to do this project. Pallets do have some weight to them so it does become a workout to start moving them around. Unlike other finished bed frames these are normally different pieces that come together to form a bed so you’d be making individual trips to get them in the right spot. They are also made out of wood which tends to scratch and snag on you if you aren’t wearing extra layers of protection. My cut toe from this morning can be an indicator of this. The other factor to remember is that these boards also have gaps that are hard to get into to clean. Dust & fluff can get inside and unless you have a vacuum with a huge nozzle you will have to do some shifting around again.

It is comfortable, I will give it that. I had it as a floor bed to start off with but now I’ve stacked it to give my room more space. I do the love the bed on most days but then there are days where I curse myself and wish that I had something more simple back. I do have it downstairs still but to move these pallet pieces back out and down two levels of stairs is another process I’m not ready to face. Also, to reassemble the ikea bed is not on my to do list anytime soon.

I’m not saying to give up on the idea but do your research beforehand. Make sure you have a general idea of the layout you want before proceeding so you don’t have to drag them all over the floors. I do have hardwood floors so I’m always nervous that it will scuff the ground up. There are  many ways they can work so check online for inspiration. I’ve seen people pull them off in beautiful ways. Just know that it does require some strength & patience. At least for me! 😉
