Things That Thrill Me

This free printable would be the cutest addition to any vanity space.

I solely watched Gossip Girl for a weekly dose of fashion and to this day, I’m still lusting after Blake Lively’s wardrobe from the show.

All bloggers lust after bright, beautiful photos, and these are some great tips to help achieve them on our own.

I’m still getting plenty of use out of my slow cooker with these lingering cold temperatures, and I think this Italian lemon chicken recipe is going to make an appearance on the dinner table in the near future.

One of the (many) reasons that I’m looking forward to the warmer temperatures is to spruce up the outside of our house. The bright colors in this front porch makeover make me wish I could get started tomorrow.

This mud closet transformation is both gorgeous and functional – exactly what I’ve been looking for for our own front hallway closet.

A floral top and black leather skinnies are equal amounts girlie and edgy for spring.

I love the idea of this springtime print on the family room mantel or on a side table in the guest room.

Nothing screams spring more than lemon and blueberry, so put the two together in a cake and you have a recipe for bliss.

    I literally spent half an hour drooling over all of those outfits – I never thought my style identified as much with Serena's look on the show but going through them all there were some definite winners!
