Tween Bedroom Makeover for Sofia


Today I am SO excited to be sharing Sofia’s bedroom upgrade with you all! I absolutely loved creating this space for her and seeing the reaction on her face when I showed her the room! Sofia loves two things all things white, along with simple gold accents. I kept both of these things in mind while I helped design this new space for her. Her grandparents were nice enough to purchase all of the bedroom furniture for her. This was her birthday/graduation gift and we are very lucky and thankful for that:) Sofia and I selected all of her furniture from We have had so much luck with everything we purchased from them in the past so I thought it would be a great place to purchase all of her bedroom furniture as well.

Here was the initial design board that I created for this space. Design boards are essential to begin with when redesigning any space. Visually seeing the furniture and the other elements you would like to add into a room are key to making sure you really like what you are about to purchase. We did a gold, black, and white color scheme throughout and it turned out so great:)

As you can see all of the furniture is white but different shades which gives the room as you can see a contrast in itself. What was great about ordering from Wayfair was the delivery process which was all so new to me. They not only delivered everything to our house but they brought it into the room that it needed to go to and it WAS already assembled! Was not expecting that at all but was so pleasantly surprised because usually furniture is left outside of your front door step.

Some of the items we used to decorate here space are all linked below:

These are the globe lights we used in her room from Target:

This is the throw we bought for Sofia’s bedding to go over the top. Throw blankets are like finishing touches to a bed.

Cream Fringe Lumbar Pillow - Opalhouse™ - image 1 of 4

I LOVE this fringe pillow. It has gold sequins sewed into it and it pops perfectly on Sofia’s bed:)

We accessorized her room with a lot of the same frames we had in her previous bedroom but we did add in some gold accents because Sofia LOVES gold. We got a lot of the frames and accessories below from TJMAXX. What is great about this room is that it is now a relaxing oasis for Sofia to go to when she gets home from school and unwinds. The desk in her room is so important for her to utilize for studying, writing essays, and getting things done.


I really like my new room because it has a nice gold decorations like the pineapples that I mixed with everything that I LOVE!



Warm weather must haves!


I don’t know about you but have been dyinggg for warmer weather! I just want to open all of the windows in our house and smell the fresh air. I know I should be used to New England weather as I have lived here all my life, but as soon as Spring hits I AM READY for fun, bright pops of color! Below, I have gathered several items I cannot wait to get my hands on this season:)

Let’s start with accessories!

Beach Bag:

This Escape bag that my favorite+ultimate girl crush blogger Living with Landyn has in her home collection I need. How adorable would this be at the beach with your family, and friends? Not to mention a great carry on bag as well!! This will be on my birthday wish list for sure. If you haven’t checked out Landyn’s blog yet you need to. She is amazinnggg! Check her out here:


Floppy beach hats:


Who doesn’t like a cute stylish hat for the beach, or the swim up bar by the pool? This girl here lovesss a floppy hat! Both of these hats I found on, and they are both under $20.00! Both of these hats are super stylsh, yet lightweight and easy to travel with at the same time.


As always, Marshalls and TJ MAXX win again for being amongst the best variety of dresses for any season. Living Maxxinista over here! I mean come on everything within this brand is to DIE for! Not only do they have great dresses, but they have an amazing variety of wedges, and such to choose from as well. The dress I am wearing in this picture is actually a cold shoulder dress, and I got it at Marshalls for $30.00! The wedges are from TJ Maxx. The jean jacket is from Zara, which I got about three years ago now so I am not sure if they still have it. These wedges are from a brand called Report and are seriously soo comfortable, and not to high either so they are functional to walk in:)
