Guest Bedroom Essentials {Entertain with Organized Style}

We have long ignored our guest bedroom and it has been furnished with hand-me-down furniture from other spaces. Sound familiar?

5 Favorite Reads {1st Quarter 2015}

I think I've mentioned before that I was committed to reading more actual books in 2015. I don't know how I ever forgot this, but books are amazing on so many levels.
