Hello Spring!

6:53 PM

Hello everyone! Sorry I've been away. Not only have I been super busy with midterms and work, but I also had a personal tragedy that took up a lot of my time. However, all is well and I am back! I am working on an awesome blogging schedule so you'll be starting to see posts on a regular schedule. I've also been working on decorating so I forsee some DIY projects and hauls coming soon!

My most recent project has been my patio. It was such an ugly eyesore! I have a gate that leads to the parking lot outside there are several stepping stones. It was so ugly! It was covered in these awful pebbles that I would slide on and there were weeds galore! So I've been working on making it pretty, of course! (pictures coming in a separate post once I'm 100% finished).

My first quest was to find the perfect patio set - the right combination of price and quality. I searched and sought after sales, but could not decide. Finally I settled on this 6 piece set that I found at Walmart. The price is amazing! All of this for $98! Every time I went it was sold out so I figured it wasn't meant to be. However, today I finally snagged one for myself. The downside is it only comes in red. My expectations weren't very high considering the costs. I must admit it wasn't fun putting the legs on the table either! Took me forever and really wish I had a second set of hands. Finally the finished product is all put together and I must say that I'm impressed! I thought it was going to look crazy cheap, but it's totally adorable! It doesn't take up a lot of space, but seats 4 people comfortably.

I also picked up a bag of mulch thinking it would be enough for outside my gate area. I was so close! I only need about half of a bag to get the job done. I picked the bag up from Walmart as well. They also have some great deals going on in their flower section. I got a ton of flower sets for $5 each. So if you are looking to spruce up your patio or deck, I'd highly consider checking them out!

This was just a little update post. School is going great, work is great (well work is work, ha) and I am looking forward to posting again!

Upcoming posts consist of:
Spin for Perfect Skin review
HouseParty's Animal Planet Monster Viewing Party
Bareminerals Bareskin kit review
lots and lots of spring/summer related DIY and decor
also more giveaways because I love giving back to my readers!

Thanks again for sticking with me, I promise I am back!

    I absolutely love spring....gonna miss it when the deathly heat of summer sticks around. Blah.

  4. I love the color of the set. I purchased a green set because it was on sale but I wish I had red now.

  5. That patio set is great! I've been looking for something similar that is reasonably priced.

  6. That's a great patio set! We keep checking the Crate & Barrel outlet store for furniture more furniture, or estate sales as we pulled out our lawn and put in decomposed granite around raised veggie beds! So much to do!

  7. I like the great, bright colors of spring and summer. Everything is so fresh and vibrant.

  8. The patio set looks fantastic. I also bout an inexpensive set which I only thought would only last a couple years. 7 years later, I still have it. However, my set requires separate cushions. I would say it is good to buy expensive cushions as they hold up better. Otherwise you have to replace them every year.
