Spring updates for our new apartment

This blog post is sponsored by Bealls Outlet, but all opinions are my own.

It feels a lot like Spring this time around in Arizona. That makes me want to add some Spring decors around the house. So I did. I got most of these decor items from Bealls Outlet, my go to store for affordable home products, kids toys, and also fashion.

Before we start going into details, I want to disclose that this blog post is sponsored by Bealls Outlet. But if you follow me on Instagram, you know how much I love going there as you might see me shopping there very often and I shared on my Instagram story all the times. It really is my favorite place to shop while saving. I found so many great deals that would cost me double or more at regular retailers.

Okay now let’s get to the entryway first. I got a small shelf on top of the hall tree bench so I added some small decor items on it, and I love how it looks now. I got the birds, flowers, the pots, and the Home sign from Bealls Outlet for a very good deal. They all are 40-70% off compare to other stores.

The pillow was also from Bealls Outlet. They have many cute pillows including the seasonal ones. Here are the ones I got for my living area.

These pillows and throw blanket are from Bealls Outlet.

The throw blanket is my favorite, it does bring everything together in my opinion. See the peace sign back there? It’s also an item from this store that I’m soooooooo happy I got it.

This decorative pot + plant and the bunny are so cute. Got these 3 items for under $10.

Now turn around to the kitchen, I found some kitchenware and decors in a very good deal.

You can find big brands kitchen tools, pans & pots like (KitchenAid, Cuisinart, T-fal, Farberware, etc.) here for up to 70% off other retailers price.

I saw these kitchen towels and mittens when I was checking out and I knew I have to get them. They are perfect for the season.
Found these Cuisinart glass containers with bamboo lids for half their retailed prices
You can easily find cool organizing stuffs like this counter top fruit holder at Bealls Outlet at a very affordable price.

Walking to the bathroom aisles, I couldn’t resist these cute towels, especially those kitty ones for my daughter. I was thinking to get just one print, I somehow walked out with 3 sets of different prints.

These are for my cat-obsessed-daughter

I also got a similar decorative pot to the ones at my entryway, and put it here at my makeup corner.

There are so many cute shower curtains in the bathroom aisles at Bealls Outlet. I bought this sheer white one plus a clear liner for our bath/shower tub. Also a white shag rug under the curtain.

That was all I bought for Spring decor. I love that I could find these cute items without breaking my bank. Every single time I shopped at Bealls Outlet, I was inspired and motivated, since they always have new items coming in.

Besides the great discounts they already mark down, I was able to get extra 15% off everything. My tips is to shop at Bealls Outlet on Friday if you are under 50 (Monday if you are 50 years old and above) and join their membership (FREE).

You can also earn points every dollar you spend there. Again, sign up is FREE either online or in-store. Here is the link for you to sign up online.

Now tell me what is you favorite place to shop for home decor?

Living room update for Fall

It’s been a while since I did my living room, and since Fall is my most favorite season, I decided to switch my living room to Fall style with a little of farmhouse and vintage vibes. It’s finally coming together the way I want and I’d love to hear what you guys think.

I will link everything in my living room at the bottom of the post so you guys could check them out. They are more on the affordable side so no worries, it won’t break your bank. Alright, here is the living before I re-did it:

I sold my treadmill, moved the sofa to the other side

After getting rid of the treadmill, I switched all the items on the right side to the left and the sofa to the right wall side. I removed the colorful rug and replaced with a 10′ x 14′ rug in white with floral detail. Let’s take a look at the room now.

This is the right side of the room.

After selling my treadmill, I use that space for my daughter’s toys so it’s still a little messy. However it looks much spacious and come together now. The TV and the bookshelf is in the spot where I had my sofa before.

I took down the summer frames, replaced with DIY floating shelved and Fall decors. I also added 2 silk plants to add a pop of green, also 3 vintage wall arts above the sofa.

The egg chair stays at the same spot. The cream rocking chair goes to the other end of the sofa.

Last but not least, I got rid of the old living table set and got the new coffee table and side table from Ameriwood Home. The wooden finish in this light oak tone is truly stunning. They look perfect with everything. The best thing is that they provide spacious storage for tons of tiny little no name items.

I have been loving Ameriwood Home furniture since they are definitely my style and they are affordable. The items always arrived well packed. The instructions were easy, it took us less than an hour to assemble both of these tables.

The hardest part was choosing which collection to go with since Ameriwood Home has so many cute collections. These table are from the Marxen collection. They are available on Amazon, click here to check them out.

It is always fun to update the house once in a while. I will keep you guys update once the other side is done (I’m trying to make storage to hide all the toys haha). Anyway, here is the list of everything I could find the link for:

Now tell me which item(s) is your favorite in this room? Or what would you add to it?

Adding green to the room!

Looking back to all my previous blog posts about my house, I found a lack of green in my photos. And yes I really need to add more green decors in my house.

If you’re like me who is not so good at planting real plants, artificial plants (or silk plants) is really the best idea. Also, if you are a busy mom like m├Żelf, you will feel so thankful when you don’t have to spend time taking care a plant at all but still having that greenery looking house.

When I was doing my mom’s room, I went online and searched for “silk plants” on both Amazon and Walmart websites. I immediately fell in love with all the choices from the brand Nearly Natural. I bought one for her room and she loves it. So this time around Nearly Natural is my top pick of course.

I picked one of the Dracaena in Wicker Basket and one of the Fiddle Leaf Fig In White Planter (same to the one in my mom’s room) to put in my small work corner.

They are carefully packed and shipped right to my front door. It took me a couple minutes to unpacked both of them. The leaves look so real (see photos below).

NearlyNaturalFloral also has a wide range of green decors such as silk plants, silk trees, silk flowers, silk arrangements, wreaths, garlands, swags, and much more. use code GET20 to save 20% off on http://www.nearlynatural.com

I’m starting to re-do my bedroom and will have a seperate blog post with all the details. I was thinking not to make this post but they are so beautiful and I couldn’t hold me back from sharing. Make sure to go check out this affordable silk plant brand.
