HOME-SPIRATIONS: Get Poppin’

I know I have been MIA for the last week and half or so, but I have been traveling to and from Dallas to visit my boyfriend so my blog posts have gotten lost in the travels! Though I will have a few great posts coming up later to fill you all in on all things stylish, touristy, and home decorating.

My favorite thing about summer is there is always something popping! Whether it is fireworks on the fourth of July or a new summer bikini… there is always something exciting! Here are a few of my favorite home-spirations where there are amazing pops of color!

SPEND OR SAVE: Outdoor Living

I know that around this time of year we are all sick of winter and dreaming of days laying by the pool and nights filled with outdoor cocktail parties and BBQing on the patio. Especially being from Cincinnati, and living in Dallas for the time being, I know how long Winter can be!

 

Here are a few of my recent outdoor living inspirations, and a couple ways to splurge or save on your own outdoor space.
