#framefarme KITCHEN

#framefarme kitchen

This post is in partnership with Bosch home appliances. All thoughts are my own. So excited to share the kitchen with you today! I teamed up with Bosch to do the reveal and I know a lot of you were waiting for my review, so I’ll do that first and then give you the tour of the kitchen below! The original dishwasher we picked for the house was absolutely terrible and I polled my Instagram friends and was shocked at the couple hundred responses emphatically stating “BOSCH!” It was far away the fan favorite and I was lucky enough to … Read more

Beauty Drawer

The Beauty Drawer - MOST used

Shared this drawer in my Stories yesterday and had a lot of questions about products, so I thought I’d put them all here! This is my top drawer in my vanity cabinet and it has all my most used products as well as items that were too wide to fit in my mirrored medicine cabinets on the wall. Low Profile Organizers are here. You can measure and get it more precise but I just had a mental place for all the products I’d need to fit and made sure I ordered enough containers. Super scientific! Eyeshadows – singles are perfect … Read more

#framefarme: MASTER

#framefarme MASTER BATH

All tile and photos unless otherwise noted provided by Marazzi USA. Thank you SO much for all your kind words on our home tour last week! Now that the general tour is live I can delve a littler deeper into each space and I got the most questions about the mater bath! So let’s dive in! When we started designing the house Russ often said he would be buried in the yard. He has no intention of ever leaving until he’s old and gray. Designing for longevity proved to be a task in and of itself! What will last, what … Read more

metal dining table ideas

After a years long hunt turning up nothing we loved, Russ insisted on making our dining table. Trouble is, he hasn’t had a second to do it, so here we are 6 months moved-in and still no dining table. It’s totally fine and we’ve gotten away with it, but I am so excited to get this project started! Since he has made the shift toward fabrication (welding and metal work) of course he wants to have some metal elements with the table. Our kitchen is all really light wood, the floors are pretty light wood-look tile as well. So I’d … Read more

#framefarme: pantry

on-the-go SNACK TRAY

This post has been sponsored by Mott’s. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Our two+ week holiday break is now over and as much as I loved the quality time with my big boys, my house is a wreck and I haven’t been able to check my emails in days. I am definitely ready for the routine and a little bit of down time to get back in the swing of things! I’ve been tackling the organization of an area every week or so in the house. The pantry is a work in progress, but I get asked about … Read more

laundry with kids

I asked sort of jokingly when I could have my kids take over in the laundry department and was blown away at how many parents already have their kids doing a good chunk or ALL of it!! Way to go! It seemed like the average age is 10, some as young as 6 and lots around 12 like I was. One mama was telling me how it has taught her kids to treat their clothing more respectfully, and they don’t just shove clothes in the hamper to get it off the floor because they know then THEY have to wash … Read more

houseguest how-to

Sponsored by Quilted Northern®. All thoughts are my own! So my sister and her family stayed with us for Thanksgiving, and our bunk room was put to full use! My older sister and I haven’t lived in the same state in 10+ years and if you’ve ever dealt with this, you know that I feel like I’m making up for lost time! All the missed playdates and sitter swapping and grocery store runs and nights out. I wanted her whole family to feel accommodated, of course, but especially her. I hoped that she’ feel pampered and that it’s a little … Read more

at home carpet cleaning

After seeing my townhouse carpets looking brand new after a carpet cleaning, I knew that if I could find a way to keep my carpets looking that clean, I might just love carpet again! Part of my problem being I’d have to clean them more than just once every couple of ayears, ha! When Hoover reached out and said they had a new SmartWash Automatic Carpet Cleaner that would do the job without making my head spin — I was in.At home carpet cleaners always felt daunting to me and I guess I wasn’t alone because Hoover put their engineers … Read more

#framefarme: ali express

Ali Express Faucet - $90

If you’ve been around for awhile you know we purchased a lot of of our home stuff via Ali Express. Ali Express is a branch of Ali Baba which is basically a direct link to shop in China. They cut out the middle man and you buy right from them, saving a TON of money. I know people have fears and worries about factory conditions, quality etc. Ali Express is like Amazon in the sense that Ali represents thousands of smaller companies. Lots of which show you pictures of their factories right in their shop home page. There are reviews … Read more
