June Favorites

My favorites from the month of June are a few beauty products.

St. Ives Green Tea Cleanser: I love this product. It has worked well to reduce the redness in my skin and keep blemishes away.

Midnight Pomegranate Body Scrub: I had a spend $10 get something free coupon for Bath and Body Works. Their perfume was on sale that day for 50% off so I got one of those and picked up this body scrub for free. It smells so good and feels kind of luxurious.

Say Yes to Carrots Shampoo and Conditioner: It's nice to know I am using an all natural product and it has left my hair feeling very soft.

Faith Hill Perfume: I have wanted this for quite awhile so I finally decided to buy it. It smells so good...perfect for summer!

What were your June favorites? Please leave a comment...I would love to hear from you!

Ikea: What We Bought

Today I want to share with you a few of the items we purchased at Ikea. First, we bought this green and white striped throw blanket for the couch. I wanted to bring more green to the room so this blanket has helped with that.

We needed a lamp for the desk so we picked this one up. It is very industrial looking and I love it.

We also bought these small green storage boxes for the bookshelf in the living room. Again, to help bring more green into the room.

We also bought a few more frames for our collage wall in our bedroom. The pictures are from our wedding and honeymoon. I still have one more frame and little project to add so when I get that done I will be sure to show you all.
We also bought a wok and 4 steam less wine glasses. However, we only came home with 2 unbroken glasses! I won't show you pics since wine glasses and a wok aren't too exciting! We also finally found the white shelves I have been wanting in stock so we got those for above the desk. I have to finish styling those so I will show them when they are done. Did any of you hit up the Ikea sale this weekend? I would love to hear about it since I have never been on a sale weekend. Is it worth going?

Ikea Inspiration

I mentioned in my May favorites that we had recently taken a trip to Minneapolis. Since we were there we of course had to stop at Ikea! I can't wait until we have a house and can really shop there and implement their ideas and products. I wanted to share with you some of the things and set ups that caught my eye.

I love this dining room table and chairs. You know I love all things black and white so this set up is right up my alley. I also love the dishes and centerpiece. I have 3 of those candlesticks (they are in our bedroom). I love how they lined them down the center of the table...I will have to remember this!

These are some of the light fixtures that caught my eye. There were a lot of cool ones. This is one reason I can't wait to have a house. I would love to have some of these light fixtures.

I love this closet! I dream of having a huge closet someday. Something pretty and organized like this would be great- just add one of those awesome light fixtures to it. Someday....

I have had my eye on this mirror for awhile. I absolutely love it. I just wish I had a place to put it.

This bedroom caught my eye. It is very pretty, but not very masculine....

Have you been to Ikea lately? What are your favorite Ikea products?
