Living Room Spring Refresh

The amazing luxury furniture company Arhaus encouraged me to share my plans on decorating for Spring! This is by far my favorite season after the dreary winter. It's when flowers bloom and the sun feels warm on the skin with a gentle breeze in the air. It's also a great time to decorate! 


Just to give you an idea, here's a look at what my living room looked like during the Fall and Winter months: 


In order to get into the Spring feel, I love adding pastels, florals and paisley designs! Fresh flowers are also a great way to make the room look more cheerful!


My style of decorating a room is to always keep all furniture neutral and then change up the accessories to alter the mood. Different pops of color can make such a huge difference, all while having the same base. I like to change throw pillows on the sofa, blankets, wall art and flowers according to the seasons.


I love how everything turned out, but I am really looking into changing the lighting of my living room! There are some GORGEOUS Arhaus lighting options that I fell in love with. I feel like changing the lighting would really make the living room look complete. Here are some of my favorite options:


Hope you found this post helpful! How do you decorate for Spring?

Baby Nursery Must Haves from Happy Mango

The moment you hold your newborn, it feels like the world stands still. Their cries instantly fill the empty air in the room and their snuggles warm your heart. Their miniature nose and chipmunk cheeks allow you to finally put a face on the human you have dreamt about for months. The life from inside of you has come forth into the world, and they need your love and protection to guide them through all the trials and tribulations it will throw at them. You are their first line of defense, and they need you to mitigate dangers and tackle adversities. Welcome to parenthood.

As a parent the added responsibility of protecting a tiny new life can be daunting, there is just so much to think about and consider. The last thing you want to stress about while pregnant is if you are providing your unborn baby with a safe nursery environment once they are born. Preparing for baby’s arrival will give you the best possible start for when you bring your dumpling home. Happy Mango can help alleviate some of the anxiety. Happy Mango is an Atlanta-based, eco-friendly store specializing in products for mommas, babies, and children. They offer a wide variety of organic products including cribs, diapers, organic nursing products, and much more.

Phnewfula Frederiksen is the owner of Happy Mango, and as a mother of two, she knows just how important it is to ensure parents have natural, healthy, and organic products available for their children. Phnewfula started Happy Mango as an online store, and the demand and popularity grew so much she was able to open a pop-up shop and then later her flagship store opened in March of 2016. Located in the Kirkwood area of Atlanta, Happy Mango carries a collection of premium organic products from lines such as Ergo Baby, Nuna, Babyletto, and Earth Mama Angel Baby, all personally curated by Phnewfula. Phnewfula has done all the legwork for parents who want to embrace natural, environmentally friendly parenting. Now you can fill your registry with the best in eco-friendly baby items without all the guesswork and worry.

Speaking of baby registries, here are six items every new parent needs on their baby registry - and of course, they are all natural and eco-friendly:

A Crib or Bassinet
Make sure baby has a place to lay its precious little head during all those afternoon naps and each night after bath time. A convertible crib or bassinet is a practical option if you are interested in having the furniture grow with your little one. Convertible pieces like the Babyletto Hulu Mini Crib and Bassinet (shown above) transform over time and they accommodate your growing baby at different stages. Change from a bassinet to a full-size crib and then to a toddler bed. Plus, the stylish oval shape makes a statement in any nursery.

Bottles
Even if you plan on exclusively breastfeeding baby, it is a good idea to have a couple of bottles handy. Glass bottles, like the Hevea Glass Bottles, are environmentally friendly and heat and thermal shock resistant. They maintain the taste and integrity of the liquid inside of it, and they are BPA, Phthalates, and PVC free.

Bathtime Fun
Almost every mother cherishes the sweet moment when they lift their clean little one from the bath, all wet and full of sweet smelling baby shampoo and soap. Protect your precious one’s head and body by using gentle, natural soaps and shampoos from lines like Babytime! By Episencial or Hip Peas.    

Diaper Bag
Taking baby out of the house means you have to haul all the necessary items with you as well, like bottles and diapers. Having a functional and stylish diaper bag ready to grab and go is essential as a new parent. Happy Mango has a wide variety of colorful, organic diaper bags suitable for moms and dads of all types.

Go Hands Free
Strap on a Moby Bamboo Wrap (shown below) to help you keep baby close to you without tying up your hands. It is comfortable for parent and baby, it is machine washable, and the wrap adjusts to hold babies 8 to 30 pounds.

Sit In Safety
The drive from the hospital to your home is the scariest when you have a new baby, so you want to ensure you are strapping baby into a safe and comfortable car seat. The Nuna PIPA infant car seat will give you the peace of mind you need when you are traveling with your bundle of joy, plus it fits together with over 20 different stroller options for a complete travel system.  

No matter what is on your registry, The Happy Mango is there to help you take the guesswork out of providing an environmentally-friendly lifestyle for your bundle of joy.

Organize Jewelry Using Ferrero Rocher Box!

One of the best ways to organize your things is to upcycle products that you would normally dispose of. Here's a 5 minute project I did using a box of Ferrero Rocher! 


These boxes are awesome for holding earrings, statement rings and brooches. After lining the drawer with wrapping paper I bought at Paper Source, I placed the box with my jewelry in it and a ring holder I had from before. Have a look at the little horror I used to have before in my drawers!

  

What a difference 5 minutes can make! Eating up the chocolates was a fun process too :) What projects can you do in 5 minutes?
