Friday “Beauty” Favorites

Friday is finally here! Naturally, this day of the week makes us feel extra happy. It reminds us that it’s time to unwind and truly enjoy the things that we love.

Today, I’m starting what I’d like to call the Friday “Beauty” Favorites series where I share images and things that I’ve come across on other blogs, Pinterest (I’m obsessed) and throughout my day-to-day routine that inspire me.

In the spirit of my blog update yesterday, this is also a great preview of what you can expect on future posts. Beautiful decor, fashion, products and so much more.

Vanity Knobs and Pulls

We’re halfway through the week, guys! Today I wanted to share an easy way to test out new vanity knobs and pulls in your bathroom before officially committing to drilled holes and screws. Sometimes you find that things look entirely different from what you had envisioned, so this is a no fuss way to ensure that you like it.

The secret is removal adhesive putty!

My husband and I couldn’t decide between two pulls and one knob for our bathroom vanity, so we bought all three to test out over the weekend. Each item was less than $3 and with Home Depot’s lovely return policy, it made sense to hold off on making a decision.

So here’s a before shot of our vanity.

Now here are the 3 different options. We realized that we placed the pulls and knob too high, but we did position the one we decided to go with a bit lower, which you’ll see in the final look at the end.

Once we picked the one we liked best, the Mr. took his measurements to ensure that everything was aligned, positioned it a bit lower, then drilled the holes.

Although each piece of hardware had something that we liked, we decided to keep it simple since our bathroom is a bit small and we didn’t want to draw too much attention to it. We wanted a clean, simple look.

So without further adieu, here’s the winner…

I hope you like it! This is a great way to try out different looks without ruining your vanity/cabinets. You can find a removal adhesive putty on Amazon, Staples, and Walmart, to name a few, for less than $5.

Greeting Card Decor

I’d have to admit, I’m a sucker for greeting cards, and so is my husband. Shhh…don’t tell him I told you that. 

It brings me nothing but pure joy to think that someone took the time to pick out a card for me for a special occasion, celebration or just because

If you feel the same way, then here’s a simple way you can create a keepsake for your personal cards. Simply get a cute memory box like the one pictured below and place the lid under the box. I purchased this one at Michaels craft store.  Then you’ll want to gather the greeting cards that you’d like to include and just place them in the box. I like to give them a slight tilt. Here’s the memory box that I keep in my living room. I recently placed some greeting cards that loved ones sent me for my one year wedding anniversary.    What do you think of this greeting card holder? I love that I was able to incorporate this into my decor. It’s a great reminder that I’m surrounded by unconditional love from family and friends. 

Let me know what you think and tag me on Instagram if you make your own memory box. Enjoy!
