Live Pretty on a Penny

A Simple Valentines Day Gift Guide

Wednesday, February 10, 2016

Hello my good people and happy February. We all know that Valentines day is quickly approaching, and I have to be quite honest... I am lazy when it comes to this holiday, although I love it! Because frankly, who doesn't like to show the people in their lives how much they love them.

So I have been scouring the net and have come up with some of my most favorite and easy DIY gift ideas to share with the ones you love most! Plus, if you are anything like me, they are super easy to do.

How about this cute teachers gift mailbox idea that my girl Alaya with Behind the Big Green Door created with items from the Target $1/$3 bin. She filled it using a Starbucks gift card and some other neat useful essentials. I think its adorable and perfect as a teachers gift. You can click over and see how she completed this special gift.

Office Plans So Far...

Hello and happy 2016! I have been trying to start my year off productive my ridding myself of unnecessary paperwork and just stuff in general. It always feels great to have this burst of energy in the New Year. Now I just hope to keep it going. I have been off of work for 2 weeks and the break was so needed. I did a bunch of nothing, but now I am back and in my routine. I hope that your Holiday season was great!

I have been working on my plans for my home office, which has a way to go, but it's getting there. If  you follow me on Instagram, then you have seen peeks of my gallery wall, and the picture and frames that I scored from Goodwill for cheap. I started with the gallery wall because I that was the easiest place to start.

Navy blue has always been a favorite of mine because it so rich and classic. I always incorporate green in my home, so I felt that this room should be no exception.

Here is the breakdown of my plans:
