I am so excited to (finally) finish this faux fireplace tutorial for yall. This project is simple, and it’s not fancy. I love it because it is a basic, cheap DIY that you can easily take and mold to your own style. I keep our home decorated fairly clean and simple. I like a lot of straight lines, which ends up meaning that things are often easy to build. Things are also often easy to build because I am NOT a master DIY-er or handywoman (and neither is my husband). I am going to share with you how we did it. Disclaimer: I am sure there are more “official” or “proper” ways of doing it. But that brings me back to my previous statement. I am not a master. This way worked great for us! This is for anyone else out there who wants to DIY, but needs to keep it easy!
Fun fact: We spend an average of 122 days a year sleeping. That’s ONE THIRD of our life. What. Mind is kinda blown. With that said, sleep hygiene is so important. A couple of years ago, I started sleeping terribly. I wouldn’t have trouble falling asleep, but I just could not stay asleep. Once that started happening, I had to trial and error so. many. things. to help me get rest! Tried melatonin — didn’t work. Tried white noise — didn’t work. But today I’m going to share with you what did work AND where to get sheets that help you sleep better. Cheers to that. Click below to see more!
Sometimes gift-giving stresses me out. Because let’s be honest, a good gift can leave a big—and lasting—impression on its recipient. That’s why knowing how to give a great gift is a skill that we can all stand to benefit from! Especially around the holidays. One of my favorite gifting hacks are the one, the only, gift baskets/gift boxes! Maybe it’s that little bit of OCD I have in me, but I love coming up with a theme and curating a little box of things I know someone will love. Today, I am on the blog with Tuesday Morning sharing how to create a beautiful gift box WITHOUT breaking the bank! Each of these boxes contain name-brand, high quality items at a fraction of the cost. To be specific, each basket cost under $25 for everything inside. Do you like great deals without sacrificing quality? You came to the right party. Click below to see!
This is 100% no secret that Target is just freaking a-maz-ing. I know I’m not alone when I say that it’s therapeutic so slowly walk the aisles. Especially without kids. On the blog today, I am sharing some of my current Target favorites. I either own these things, or wish I owned them! Whether you’re looking for a graduation dress, an Easter outfit, home decor, or Spring shoes, I’ve got ya. Look no further. It’s all here. I’ve organized it by category for ease of reading. Hope yall enjoy!
I don’t know about y’all, but I am a liiiiittle obsessed with Amazon Prime. I mean.. free two-day shipping, great pricing, and literally everything I want with just a click. It’s kind of a problem. You know that “please hide packages from husband” doormat? I feel like I need that thanks to good old Amazon Prime. I can’t be alone in this, right!? Either way, I put together a list of my current Amazon faves! I hope you like it 🙂
Well. It’s kinda hard to believe, but everywhere is loaded with spring things! I feel like Christmas JUST ended. And it’s snowing outside. Nevertheless, Spring decor is here & it’s so cute! Y’all know I love a good deal, and these are ALL under $50. Scout’s honor. You’ll find Spring & Easter in here and I hope you like it. I have purchased a lot of things from this list, so if you have any questions, ask away!

Currently enjoying this view for a couple more days. Yes, Christmas is over. But we wait till January 1st to take down the tree! Taking down my Christmas decorations always makes me a liiiiittle sad. Christmas is so magical and it always goes by too quickly! I have loved the time we spent with our family and friends and I enjoyed every second. But when one season ends, another begins. And I am so excited for the new year and to see what 2019 brings. This morning when I checked my emails, there were sale alerts all over the place. We’ve had Black Friday sales, cyber monday sales, and “last minute” sales. And now there are after Christmas sales! In honor of those after-Christmas sales, I’ve rounded up both my favorite clothing & home buys that are on sale! Click read more to see 🙂
The temperatures have dropped as low as 15 degrees in North Idaho so that inspired me to share with y’all my cold weather must haves! Growing up in Southern California, I had no real cold weather clothes. My idea of cold was high 50s low 60s. So I have slowly collected an arsenal of cozy, toasty, warm stuff. Dick’s Sporting Goods is 20% off online today (including sale!) with free shipping so I have collected my favorite cold weather must haves from their website to share with you! This post is not sponsored by Dick’s. I just love a good sale + they have a freaking good selection.
Wallpaper is officially making a comeback, yall. And it is so much better than it was in the 90’s. Peel and freakin’ stick! Hell. Ya. But I get it, even the peel & stick is a little daunting. Hopefully this post puts you at ease. Because I have never applied wallpaper before. But it was 100% doable and makes a real statement! Seriously. It also makes everything else easier to design around, in my opinion. Once I had my grey brick wallpaper up, it kind of “set the tone” for the room & made everything else easier to pick.
Whenever I post a picture of my master on my Instagram (@everydaykacie), I get so many messages about my wallpaper. Does it peel in the corners? Was it easy to put on? Would I recommend it? So I decided to write this to answer all your wallpaper questions, & offer a couple tips, too.
Some new Christmas stuff has been released (YAY) so I wanted to do another round up for y’all since everyone loved the first one so much! & Here it is! Any questions stick them in the comments. And if you like it, I’d get it quick because this stuff is selling out fast this year! Click the read more button below to see.
