Ditching and switching items in the laundry room

Ditching and switching items in the laundry room 150 150 Jenn Pennell
If I could go back in time I would tell a much younger Jenn two things:
1. Buy nothing but white bed sheets and towels. They’re so much easier to keep clean and they’ll match any room.
2. STOP BUYING DRYER SHEETS! It makes me sick to my stomach to think about how those common household items I was using was affecting his lungs and how just switching them out for cleaner products improved his health. #knowbetterdobetter I mean, have you ever researched the chemicals in detergent and dryer sheets? I couldn’t wait to use up what I had and switch to Thieves Laundry Soap and wool dryer balls.This 32oz bottle can be diluted down to 3 bottles, instead of one since it’s super-concentrated and the dryer balls last forever! It’s one of the easiest and most cost-effective changes you can make in your home and the health benefits ARE SO WORTH IT! 

 

What’s your favorite oil to put in your dryer? We love Purification (to get out smells) and Citrus Fresh!

Hello love!
Today, I’m needing your help with something. I’m in search for the perfect pair of black leggings. I’ve had this cheap pair from Target for years but now I’ve worn the knees out so bad that they wrinkle and stretch bad. I’m looking into a pair of Spanx black leggings but I would love to know your favorites. Leave a comment below if you have a pair you can’t live without!

My favorite room in the house

My favorite room in the house 150 150 Jenn Pennell

Hello Love!
My living room is my FAVORITE room in this house. I’ve had the same furniture since Jason and I first got married yet after a simple rearranging, it still feels brand new. 
It’s full of baskets, photos, and my favorite painting, “Doctor and Doll” by Norman Rockwell, that hung in my grandparent’s house, the house on Shaw Avenue. Did I ever tell you guys that’s where my blog name came from?
She’s getting a mini facelift soon with new curtains and second rug layered under this one but it always feels like a breath of fresh air when I come in here. 
What’s your favorite room in your house?

Hello Love!
Last night’s last minute business dinner was the perfect occasion to wear my new little white ruffled top from SheIn. I’m seriously in love with this website and so glad that I snagged this op for only $8. I’m seriously still so surprised at the quality of products from SheIn and I’ll definitely be purchasing more next month. One of the pieces I bought was not a win but Angela told me to make sure I read reviews on every item I get and to pay attention to measurements because the pieces can run very different. 
Also, my dear friend Kim at Daisy Faye Designs is having a July special on the cute pineapple pouch that keeps everything in my purse nice and organized! You can grab it for only $15 this month only!

My Justin Gaffrey painting

My Justin Gaffrey painting 150 150 Jenn Pennell

Last year my son and I took a short trip down to 30a with my cousin Angela and in our rental house, there were these AMAZING 3D paintings by a local artist, Justin Gaffrey. We traveled over to his gallery and were AMAZED at his creative pieces. From abstract pieces with metal and oddities mixed in to his signature beauty wave paintings, we were in AWE of every piece. I met Justin’s assistant Brian at the gallery but Angela and her hubby Matt got to visit Justin himself in his main studio a few days later! I was only slightly jealous. 😂
A few days after I arrived back home, a packaged arrived at my doorstep and I pretty much DIED when I opened it up. Justin and Brian has sent me my own painting as a thank you for visiting them! If this painting doesn’t scream J E N N, I don’t know what does!
We were so inspired by the piece that my girlies and I had to have our own paining fun! It’s not something we get to do often but we had the BEST time making a mess and creating some magic!
A HUGE  T H A N K  Y O U to Justin Gaffery and Brian Wood for your kind gift. I will cherish it forever.

My favorite $25 denim romper from Amazon

My favorite $25 denim romper from Amazon 150 150 Jenn Pennell

Happy Saturday, friend! I’ve recently become addicted to something and I feel like if I just get it out there, out in the open, I’ll feel soooo much better.
Ok, here it goes.
I’m addicted to Amazon. 🙈
I know you’re not judging me, right?! Are you as addicted as I am? Yep, I figured you were. After seeing some amazing, budget-friendly Amazon Fashion pieces from a fellow IGer, I knew I need to take the plunge and buy a few pieces to see both how fit is and quality of pieces. They all came in a few days ago and I was pleasantly surprised at how well they’re made for the price points. I’ll share the other pieces I snagged on this coming Tuesday’s post but today I wanted to show off my favorite piece, this adorable denim romper
I knew as soon as I put it on that it would be my husband’s new favorite outfit of mine. HAHAHA!  I am 5’3′ and ordered a size small. It does fit very true-to-size but note that it is quite short. So short as in I won’t be doing any bending over in it, if you know what I mean, but for only $25, I absolutely LOVE it. I paired it with my brand new Steve Madden wedges and leather necklace for a cute and casual everyday look.
