When you’re decorating your home on a budget, you have to be creative about how and where you shop.

A Lazy Girl’s Guide to Making the Bed + Our New Mattress Set

If you lived nearby and wanted to come over to our home for a visit, I’d ask you to please give me a 24 hour warning. Why? I’m a terrible housekeeper. I fully admit it.
