Sea Salt Bedroom


Hey there!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I apologize for being so MIA lately. I am getting ready for my Christmas tour and have been putting some final touches on my bedroom. Although I am posting this today, I will probably make a few changes with some décor in here, but I will add to the page accordingly.

First of all, I would like to thank the people who always check out my blog posts. It really means a lot to me that some people care about what I do and are supporting my journey.

It’s not easy being a blogger. One month I will post 3 times a week and the next I will only do once a week. Sometimes I have all the ambition in the world and full of creativity….other days I am very sluggish and am full of self-doubt. I am the type of person to compare myself to others. When I see that I am not doing as well as other bloggers, I hit a wall.

I just want to give a shout out and say THANK YOU for those who have taken the time to read my blog.

Second, I would like to make sure that my readers know my social media profiles:

Lastly, here is my sea salt bedroom reveal! I have been dying to try this color since I’ve seen it on Pinterest. I am very happy with the way that it turned out. I can’t get enough of this color (I painted my office this color as well)! I have a love for the coastal style, because it gives such an elegant, yet relaxed feeling.

Sea Salt is a Sherwin-Williams paint color. It can take on different hues depending on the lighting you have. My bedroom takes on a blue-grey hue while my office is more minty blue-green.

Before I give you the reveal, let me show you the different looks I have given to this room. Starting from when we moved in to now. I have learned about my personal taste and well, just how to decorate since 2014. Thank God for better picture quality too 😉

Gilded Intent Cold Shoulder Sweater

Hey There!

Last night my friends and I had a little girls night, so what better excuse to wear my new sweater? I am in love with this black cold shoulder sweater from Buckle. It’s a very form-fitting sweater, but the open shoulders and elbows allow it to be casual. It is not too lengthy so it’s perfect to show off my high-waisted Levi’s.

These jeans are so comfortable and give a classic look to about any outfit. My mom is baffled that they are back in style, but what can I say? They are adorable!

I wore my black Not Rated Miss G Boots to finish it off. I love these boots, because I can wear them with just about anything and they rarely fall down my legs! I have tiny chicken legs so I have this issue sometimes.

 

I just love how cute, but casual this outfit is. I found that I like this top better with my hair pulled back into either a messy bun or pony. I also did smokey eye make up to compliment the outfit. I went for a nude lipstick so my eyes were the center of attention.

Goulash


Hey there!

Today I have a recipe post for you! The weather is getting chilly and it’s time to stock up on some comfort food recipes. This is actually my grandma’s recipe that she so kindly gave me. I have loved her goulash since I was little and still do to this day. It’s one of those foods that is amazing left-over, which is perfect for harvest season. Honestly, it’s almost better the second day. To top it all off, it’s super easy to make and on budget.

Servings:

  • I would say about 6

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 box of Large Elbow Macaroni

  • 1 can of Tomato Soup (10 3/4 oz)

  • 1 can of Stewed Tomatoes (14.5 oz)

  • 1 pound of ground beef

  • Ketchup

  • Salt & Pepper

Instructions:

  1. Place water and noodles into pot, turn burner on high, and let heat until boiling (continually stir the noodles throughout this process so the noodles don’t stick)

  2. Put thawed out ground beef into skillet and begin to brown.

  3. Drain the fat during the browning process or after

  4. After fat has been drained and meat has been browned, turn skillet onto low setting

  5. Stir stewed tomatoes and tomato soup into skillet for 3-5 minutes

  6. Once water has boiled and noodles are cooked to your liking, drain the water

  7. Stir in the meat, tomato soup, and stewed tomatoes with the noodles in the pot.

  8. Add ketchup (your preference of how much) and stir it into the pot

  9. Sprinkle salt and pepper for taste

Note: I’m not a fan of how large stewed tomatoes are so I cut them up into smaller pieces
