I got the blog post...

Ya'll know I've been raving about the #getsmart @tiltsmarthome blinds. πŸ‘I'm obsessed!
-
-
-
I have to mention another thing I have come to love about these is that I can adjust the blinds from my app according to the kids particular needs. #sponsored -
-
-
For example, our daughter likes to hang out in here and do her nails, read, chat on the phone with her bff.  All the teen girl things. πŸ’…
-
-
-
And if it's scheduled for them to be closed (based on the hot afternoon sun holla temp sensitive blinds)  I can adjust them to open downward enough to give her light while still keeping most of the heat out. -

Teen happy, mom happy, wallet happy πŸ’° #tilt

I'm stoked to share with you that I'm a new #purplepartner embarking on their 100 night trial.  We are a few days in and I've been dying to share this with you! πŸ’œ

You can see our youngest little is testing out the mattress, just prior to this photo he was assessing it's "jump" factor.  The verdict "Mom! It's SO squishy and soft! Can I keep jumping puuuhhhllleeeaaassseee?!" -
-
-
Tulip was giving the @purple dog bed a test drive, which she literally spent every moment on until she passed a few days later.  We are so grateful her last days were spent in such comfort and support enjoying this bed. ❀
-
-
-
Now our other pups are enjoying while we get a feel for the mattress!
-
-
-
It's been a bit over a week and I must say we are very impressed! I have lots of back issues while the hubs gets numb arms from side sleeping.  So far this has made a difference in our quality of sleep! πŸ˜ͺ
-
-
-
I am really looking forward seeing what kind of longer term usage benefits there might be from this mattress, which is one of the coolest innovations (in my humble opinion) in sleep.  Holla 4" purple smart comfort grid!! And coming from a horrible sleeper that's saying somethin 😁 #lifeonpurple
-
-
-
Hit up my stories where I share the process from delivery to intial impressions!
-
-
-
I'll share my honest thoughts and experiences with you during this 100 night trial so you can make an informed decision on what's best for your sleep! πŸ›

    I LOVE your design style… it speaks to me. I notice I stand out as well with my home decor and don’t do the traditional or current trend. I mix a lot too, some people tell you not to, why not?! πŸ˜‰ Keep doing your awesome work. I love your updates.

      Thank you SO very much for this Aleksandra!! I don’t have anyone telling me not to mix, just that I don’t fit into any specific category. That makes it tough to build something you know? Keep rockin it girl!

    Your words are just what I needed to hear, thank you. I’m going to read it over & over! 😁
    I do artwork alongside my sister who has set up an online shop. I never have been someone to fit in which is fine but with IG, it’s all new to me & I have wondered why I bother. But you’re right with all that you say so I will continue to bother and care, I will be patient and still be me. Thank you.

      IG is a fickle beast. It can be amazing and it can be a total confidence killer. If you can push past it and focus on the good and why you are doing what you do, you’ll see the benefits and positivity. For me the biggest plus from Instagram has been the people. The comments the connections and new friends make it worthwhile. All the best with your artwork and shop and don’t give up! XXOOO

    This post hit home with me. I found you because I want to go a different direction than the all white farmhouse that I see every where. I love that style, but I know it’s not me. I love your style. This post hit home though, because I’ve been struggling with my IG. I love IG, but I really want to grow and eventually monetize, but I’m growing at a snails pase. Wondering what I’m doing wrong??? Thanks for the little push to keep doing me!

      Hi Amy! You aren’t doing anything wrong, IG is rough especially with the algorithm all over the place. I hear from huge accounts on down that it’s gotten harder and harder. Just keep going and try not to let it get you down. All the best to you!! xxx

        Omg, I have been needing to read this! Thank you for opening up about it because there are a lot of us out there who get intimidated by the overwhelming trends and the beautiful photos of them. I love a lot of different design styles but I’m still trying to pinpoint my own personal and unique mix. I struggle with my style sometimes because if a part of it gets too trendy, I begin to like it less. I wander around this frustrating line between wanting to use trends as a tool for my business ideas, and kinda loathing being lumped in with the followers. I like being my unique self and I often find myself getting annoyed when my tastes become TOO trendy–because then it’s just done to death. (And I have this weird fear of being a stereotype, a follower, or “sheeple”.) I’m a mess, what can I say? Haha!! πŸ˜‚ I’m bookmarking this post to read whenever I need the reminder to follow MY design heart, and not that of the masses. Thank you! πŸ’—

          So much truth! I am totally with you, I always try to be different in literally every way, like does everyone have this minivan? I want a different minivan. haha It’s a thing and it means we are authentic to ourselves and don’t want to be like everyone else. I would suggest just doing what feels right to you. I’ve had several instances where something became trendy later, a couple of them I continued to live with for awhile and others I changed. You can just say hey I did it before it was trendy. Trends come and go like the wind and always circle back around at some point. I just don’t pay any attention to it, it’s way better for my mind that way. Stay true to you and what you love!

    Here, here! I love your style, I love the way you are free to be and do what you like, and love that you aren’t afraid of failing. You go for it and it’s always amazing! You are amazing! Can’t wait to see what you come up with next!

    Hi! I’m a long-time lurker/blog reader in the interior design world since 2007… I have watched the trends come and go; YES, it is harder to “fit in” with the trends these days (and is it just me, or is the “new farmhouse” never going away??) However, YOU are memorable! In a sea of same-same-same, YOU stand out! It’s getting harder and harder to seek folks that are using actual color and a variety of styles in their homes. It saddens me, truly. Back in 2007 it was all orange accent walls, mid-century modern, brown, IKEA stuff, but people were genuine and their homes didn’t need $10k countertops.

    I admire you for staying true to yourself, your roots, etc. I mean, SERIOUSLY, half the homes I come across are boring, shallow monuments to the current design trend. I struggle in my own home because I’m 40% Artsy Modern Minimal, 40% Maximalist Southern Freakshow, 20% Old World Traditional. So I’m constantly taking in ideas and inspiration so I can express myself, too!

    Keep on keepin’ on, don’t compare yourself, you’re like a unicorn in a field of brown horses, girlie! (I do, however, completely support the Unicorn-everything trend, haha!)

      November 29, 2018

      Aww Christina! Thank you SO much for this comment. You are right, I don’t think the “new farmhouse” is going anywhere anytime soon. And I also 100% agree that there aren’t enough of us bucking that trend, but your style sounds pretty fantastic I especially love the freakshow part haha! And I also have to say I completely agree that originality is sorely lacking in design. It should be all about expressing yourself, your personality, the way you see the world and not what Pinterest or a magazine tells you it should look like. Alas, that’s the way it is but I damn well will continue being a unicorn and you will be right there with me amongst those brown horses! lol Much love to you babe! xxxx
