Life Lately: Patio Design Update + Spring Shopping Links

In the realm of outdoor living, I’ve gone ALL OUT this Spring sprucing up our doorstep decor for the season as well as adding much-needed seating to our limited outdoor entertaining space. Our house is tiny tiny tiny, so we’re truly reliant on our 3/4 of an acre to host friends & family that come over to visit. I’ve had so much fun putting this space together (still have a few final touches to make) & wanted to share with you all as soon as I had suitable photos LOL.

In addition to this outdoor update, I’ve also put together a list of a few things I’m loooving as of recently. Hope you enjoy!


Everything was sourced from HomeGoods, Lowe’s &/or local garden centers – including links to similar decorative items below

‘Hi!’ Door Mat & Decorative Layered Mat | Boho Standing Planter | Large Wood Lantern | Welcome Sign | B/W Accent Table

Black Metal Lanterns | White Planter Boxes | Large Planter Pot


Patio Loveseat & (Set of 2) Club Chairs | Round Patio Table | (similar) Square Accent Tables | 7’x10′ Rug | (similar) Swinging Egg Chair

Pink & Blue Striped Pillow | Pink Striped Pillow | Blush Pillow | Sailboat Pillow |

Loveseat Waterproof Cover & (Set of 2) Club Chair Waterproof Cover, Stackable Chairs (not pictured)

What I love about these covers is that I was able to select the right size for each piece. I believe I ordered size Small for all of them, but referred to the dimension sizing on the Target website to confirm the right ones to order. They also come with snaps to secure to your furniture in case of inclement weather/high winds, etc.

& Lastly…


Clothing + Accessories

Midi Dresses

I shared a roundup of several midi dresses that I might have in my online cart… they’re seriously so great for this season & can easily be worn into the summer months

Tory Burch Sneakers

Really loving the pop of yellow along with the canvas white, fits TTS as well

Button-Down LS Bodysuit

My favorite bodysuit to date – who doesn’t love a crisp, oversized white button-down that doesn’t untuck!?

Button High-Waist Denim Shorts

The fit of this pair is SO GOOD – like big booty approved & passed the squat test to ensure it

Dupe Tennis Bracelet

Actually love how pretty this obvious dupe is, thank you once again Amazon!

Beauty + Self-Care

BigTail PonyTail Hair Tool

Hands-down the best thing to ever happen to my ponytail! Find out why in my full review here – promo code included!

Necessaire ‘The Body Essentials Set’

The best bang for your buck in terms of full-size products – my fave scent is Eucalyptus

Rose Quartz Facial Roller

Comes with 2 attachments & it vibrates, which enhances serum absorption and drastically helps reduce the dark circles under my eyes

Mini Beauty Fridge

I keep the above facial roller attachments + several eye/skin serums in here and WOW – best unnecessary yet necessary purchase I’ve made when it comes to the longevity of my products & the overall enhancement of skincare routine

Makeup Brush Washing Station

Came across this on Amazon and it definitely makes washing/drying my makeup brushes a heck of a lot easier now

Waterproof Bluetooth Shower Speaker

Definitely not the best quality, but hey – I can listen to my podcasts and music in the shower now and hooking up to my phone was a piece of cake

For Levi

Cooling Non-Toxic Gel Pad

Noticed she was panting a lot & the minute I got this, it stopped! She loves it – perfect for hotter days & fits in her crate as well

Level II Puzzle Treat Toy

This one stumps her occasionally, which buys me a little bit of time whenever I need to distract her in order to get some timely things done

Custom Dog Tag

Fell in love with the font & customization options from this Etsy seller – so cute!

WickedBone Interactive Toy

Another great “distraction tool” for her/me – connects to my phone via app so I can control the remote bone or I can put it on Interactive mode for x amount of minutes so she can play with it on her own
