ne day I’ll think of a clever title to share what I recently purchased online to what I receive in the mail, but meanwhile I’ve been long overdue these past few months to share some new discoveries and items I bought I have to share with you – it’s like those girlfriend recommendations you have over lunch!

So here’s what I’ve let in my home as of lately! I hope you find some new things to try!

Summer Floral Tablecloths

I am working on a personal project organizing my tablecloths and entertaining items in an excel – I truly feel as though you’d understand the value in this. I got rid of some tablecloths that aren’t “me” and I want to be proud of all my tablecloths and not use them for just one occasion! I landed on The Company Store and bought some Indian block print style summer garden tablecloths – different sizes and colors for specific tables because some prints I believe look best in the garden outdoors. Once it arrived I was shocked to see it was lined! Gorgeous tablecloths I highly recommend them. I ordered the blue and white for the indoor dining room table and the multicolored one for outside. 

Buxom Cosmetics Limited Edition Dolly

Buxom Cosmetics have been longtime friends of mine sending me PR packages and spoiling me! Buxom has the best plumping gloss and how do I know? Recently a girlfriend asked me if I had my lips done (never have) and I said no, and she asked about the lip gloss and of course it was Buxom! I love the Dolly plumping lip gloss and they have a limited edition of Dolly eyeshadow palettes and more – check it out!buxom dolly line

I ordered paint sticker samples

Maybe you recognize me all over Pinterest with Samplize, the sticker sample paint colors. Yep that’s me who did a campaign with them and I’m now haunting every ex in home improvement stores haha!  Anyway I ordered some mid tone greens to paint the vanity (and will change the knobs and location of them) – I don’t want a perfect wallpaper paint match, I want something fun that pops! So here’s what I ordered that are Sherwin-Williams colors.

There will be a new mirror I will swap out, one I bought from a garage sale for $20 – it’s gorgeous and a new light fixture from Anthro. Which is crazy because I bought that mirror from Rejuvenation that was overpriced and I like a $20 mirror better but it shows it’s not about what you spend!

Rose flower wall sconce

This is the new flower vanity sconce I bought for the powder room (but really a 3/4 bath since there’s a shower in there). I am still obsessed with the Cole and Sons wallpaper, if I could wallpaper more with it, I would. It’s just so dreamy to me when I saw this sconce it made my heart skip a beat and knew it would be a good fit. Here’s how the guest bathroom looks recently.

Hive knobs

I want hive knobs for the new powder room but then I also saw these – I saw three types actually and these were the middle price and I liked the finish to replace a few basic knobs in the bookcase by the Murphy bed.

The actual hive knobs I want for the bathroom makeover are $49 each and can be found on Modern Matter.

Nosie canceling earbuds

Summer means traveling and I was sent these iLive’s Truly Wireless Noise Canceling Earbuds which I used for my flight to Sac to see my parents and you won’t believe it but somehow I got them soaking wet on my way back and they still work PHEW. I guess it came in handy they are waterproof/sweatproof design because I had a leaky water bottle and it got everything inside wet the next morning!

Looking to make a Custom Rug (13×13.5)

I want a larger custom rug for the front room, our living room. I need it to be 13×13.5 to fit all of the furniture on it and look really classy.

Currently –

It’s an 8×10 I know, it fits all the rules but I want more rug and no larger size is going to give me that so I requested some rug samples and hope to show you what I get soon – once I can make up my mind.

Vegan and clean skincare

I was gifted some items I chose to try by Versed, a vegan, cruelty-free, and clean skincare line. I picked for my skincare needs: Brightening tightening mask ($9.99), mood lighting luminizing glow drops in sheer bronzed ($17.99), instant resurfacing mask ($17.99), and dark spot gel ($16.99). They gave me a Versed discount code if you’d like to try – DIANAELIZABETH10.

The prices were very reasonable, so that was impressive.

And that’s it for now. There are many random packages with samples and decisions to make I feel like I have decision fatigue! xx
