Lulu & Georgia Giveaway and Bathroom Styling

bathroom styling // simplified bee

Our new bathroom still needed a little styling especially one wall above the toilet. I teamed up with Lulu & Georgia for some super chic decor items for the space. I instantly fell in love with a photograph of a beautiful cactus plant. The gray tones and organic pattern look amazing with the marble tile. Love it! I also spotted the Retrograd Vase and liked it’s mid-century modern vibe. I filled it with succulents from my garden for a pop of color. To finish out the look, I selected a three wick candle housed in a timeless tin with a metallic knob. The cedar with scent with hints of vanilla is amazing. Every bathroom needs a candle like this – and don’t forget to pair it with an adorable matchbox like this! And for a limited time, grab some for yourself at 20% OFF at LuLu & Georgia using discount code: BEE20 (expires 10/22/14).

CanvasPop Review & Discount Code

Sometimes the best artwork is the most personal. Having family photos reproduced on canvas (large or small) is a wonderful way to preserve and showcase travel, loved ones and life’s precious moments.

When CanvasPop, a leader in canvas photo prints, asked if I would review their product I was thrilled. In fact, I asked a client (who is also an excellent photographer), Suzanne O’Brien if she would be willing to help me out with the review. She picked  a sweet photo of her daughter holding some of my favorite flowers, pink peonies. Here’s the amazing result and what Suzanne had to say about it:

CanvasPop Discount Code

I couldn’t be more pleased with my new CanvasPop photo canvas. The colors are rich and vibrant on the textured canvas. When I showed the piece to my family, my son remarked, “wait, did you paint that?” It does have a beautiful artistic quality to it. The 20×20 size is large enough to make a statement, yet small enough to fit easily on an existing gallery wall. Perfect for my daughter’s “personality wall” that I’ve been slowly adding to for the last few years. My vision for this space is for her to go to sleep at night with a visual reminder of all the good things that make her her. – Suzanne O’Brien

Matthew 5:4


I just couldn’t blog today. My heart still aches from Friday’s tragedy in Connecticut.

My deepest condolences and prayers goes out the families, victims and people of Newtown.

Thanksgiving Family Photo Booth

Taking family photos when the whole gang is together over Thanksgiving is a must. I love the idea of creating your own photo booth with a solid drape background and handheld props. I’m smitten with these Pilgrim hats, Indian headdresses and turkey leg props by Silhouette Shop. This DIY collection is formatted to be printed on 8.5 x 11 heavy cardstock. Just print, cut, stick on a stick and have fun!

Happy Thanksgiving!
