Pink, Black, White and Gold Office/Craft Room Inspiration

My last room that I really have planned out is my Jourdan’s Jewels office/craft room. The whole gold trend is finally starting to grow on me.. Only a year or so later, but nonetheless! I am way excited for this room, too, because I get to be as girly as it gets in this room!!

Pink, Gold, Black Office

My colors are black, white, pink, gold and silver in this room.

Grey and Purple Bathroom Inspiration

My bathroom has been the hardest room for me. I just didn’t know how I wanted to do it. There are lots of cute bathrooms on Pinterest – a few that caught my eye, but none that I absolutely loved! So I started looking for a shower curtain that I loved and then I would decorate around that. The one that I chose is one that I’ve seen floating around and I have always loved it, so I knew it was the right choice. And I got it for a smokin’ deal! I ordered it immediately.

I present to you… Sinatra Silver shower curtain!

So after much thought, I decided I will do a peacock color scheme in there! I think it will look great… If I could just find some decorations and things to match! I was originally wanting to do this color scheme in my living room, but I thought the red would be better since I had red in the kitchen.

Living Room Inspiration

I plan on having grey walls throughout the entire house, with an accent wall in each room. In my living room, the accent wall is red. I love red.

And plus, you can see into the living room from the kitchen and since I am doing red in my kitchen, I thought it would “flow” perfectly. Hoping it looks a little something like this.

I just went up north last weekend and bought a couch. RC Willey was having a big liquidation sale because they are moving to a bigger location. This is the couch I bought..

image1~500

It is a lot darker than pictured. It’s more of a charcoal color. My walls will be about the color of the couch in the picture. Then I will have a charcoal colored couch. My flooring is grey vinyl that looks like tile and my carpet is grey with some flecks of black and brown. Also, the couch is on sale for the same price online as it was in store, so it didn’t end up being as good of a deal as I thought, but I am still happy about it.

So with the couch, I need some cute accent pillows! Here are a few I have found..
Quatrefoil

Black and White Striped Bow

Arrows!

Red Flowers

Black and White Geometric

And my most favorite one!! The Pet Definition Pillow. I am definitely going to get this one for our little Daizee girl that we got for Christmas!

I am obsessing over this red mirror. I need to find me one!

And of course every room needs some cute picture frames.. (Click picture for details!)

982272_1I love these curtains for the window.

il_570xN.686030519_b2cdI plan on getting a 50-60″ TV and my TV stand is black. I’d like to find a little entry way table and an end table as well, so that I can put my lamps on them.

Up next is my room!

Check out my kitchen inspiration.

Kitchen Inspiration

I have all of the rooms planned out in my head. I owe a big thanks to Pinterest for helping me out a LOT! I plan on doing my kitchen red, yellow and blue.

Red, yellow and blue Kitchen Inspiration. Perfect for the vintage/retro look. | Two Million Miles

My cabinets are going to be a white knotty wood (!!!!) with metallic black counter tops. They should look something like this..

White Knotty Wood Cabinets | Two Million Miles

In the corner of the dining area, there is a built-in hutch. SWOON! When we were looking at the house, my dad asked me what I wanted to do with it (like suggesting that I knock it out). “Leave it there! I love it!” We aren’t doing anything besides paint that bad boy. I plan on doing my kitchen walls blue and I will paint the hutch red. I found these adorable vintage suitcases and I thought they would be so cute somewhere in my kitchen, but I just don’t know where. I don’t think there would be enough room on the hutch for them. Maybe above the cabinets, if there is room?

Red, Yellow and Blue Vintage suitcases! | Two Million Miles

Can we just talk about the vintage yellow clock for a second?! If I don’t end up using it in my kitchen, it’s definitely going in my room!

I don’t have a lot of wall space, but these prints are too cute! Plus, you can customize them to your own colors, so I’d take the charcoal out and replace it with yellow.

Super cute kitchen printables. You can even customize the colors to match your kitchen. | Two Million Miles

I can’t find the original source for this one, but there are a lot of things I love about this picture. One: the red EAT letters in the background! They would look so cute on my hutch, but in a different color. Two: the red table! I bought a tall white table off of one of the Facebook yard sale groups for $20. It has four stools. The table top is a little warped from them having it outside while they were trying to sell it, so I’ve planned on sanding it down and just repainting it white, but I might actually do red! Three: the candle stick chandelier! There is one in my front room, but it’s the terrible gold one. This makes me want to repaint it and hang it above my table!

LOVE the red EAT and the red table. Also, how cute is that candle light chandelier? | Two Million MilesI probably won’t add too many red decorations to my red hutch, but I love the vintage dishes on this one!

Loving the red, blue and white vintage dishes on this hutch. | Two Million MilesBut then I see this picture and it makes me want to paint the chairs instead. Decisions, decisions! (P.S. I love Bower Power blog. You should follow it.)

Light blue walls with red kitchen chairs. | Two Million MilesThis listing is no longer available, but these wall vases would so easy to make and then you could paint them whatever color you wanted. But I just love this color combo!

Red, blue and yellow mini vases. Would be so easy to make with some scrap wood and you could change the colors, too. | Two Million MilesHow cute is this?! You wouldn’t even need to use fabric, if you didn’t want to – just patterned paper. You can buy the frames and silverware at the Dollar Store. Cute, cheap and easy DIY project!

Super easy DIY! Just get some silverware at the Dollar Store or use some old ones, spray them and a frame and then add some patterned paper to the back. Glue the silverware on. | Two Million Miles

This is such a cute idea! Would be so easy to make and you can paint the blocks to match your kitchen. Check this article out for lots more silverware decor ideas.

Adorable key holders made out of wood and silverware! So cute! | Two Million Miles

This Exit sign is darling! I plan on getting it the next time I go to Hobby Lobby (aka HEAVEN!).

Exit Way Out Sign. Perfect for a kitchen or a vintage room. | Two Million Miles

I’ll do a post of inspiration for each room and then I will definitely show you the real thing once I get to it!

Big News!!

So, it’s no secret that I suck at keeping up with this blog. I wish I did. I think about it every single day, but I just don’t ever find the time to do it and I really need to. I know that I have started so many posts out like this, (call me a slacker. I know, I know.) saying how I am going to do better and blah, blah. I really do WANT to, I just don’t. My intentions are good though. Annnnyyywayyyy… I have some big news!

I am under contract on a house! Can I get a WOOOOHOOOOO?!?! After looking at over 20 homes, I found one.

Under Contract

It’s an older home and I am doing some renovations to it, so I really am planning on posting my progress here! The kitchen is what I am most excited for! I am getting WHITE KNOTTY wood cabinets with black counter tops (insert emoji with heart eyes here!). The flooring in the kitchen and both bathrooms, as well as the entry way to the front door, is grey vinyl that looks like tile. I’m getting new carpet, new doors (interior and exterior) and a new bathroom upstairs. The windows have all been replaced, which is so nice because that will save me a lot of money. The home was built in 1974, I believe, and there really hasn’t been any improvements to the home since then hahah! So it’s pretty outdated. Each room has a different color carpet. Downstairs has the orange shaggy carpet. I think I might keep that…. ;) The downstairs also has wood panel walls, so that needs to come off. There is no actual laundry room; the washer and dryer are just in a storage room, which kinda sucks. I was looking forward to having an actual laundry room, but I will survive. Both bedrooms upstairs have wall paper, so we’ll have a good time peeling that off. The upstairs bathroom only has a tub, no shower, so I am getting rid of the original PINK tub and installing a tub/shower combo. There is a window above the tub and we will just frame it in from the inside and place the surround over it because it is the “perfect height”. The water would hit it and it would grow mold, etc., plus.. You’d probably get to see some naked bodies in there! :| and we can’t have that! The home is a good, solid home. It is well built and should last for many years to come. I love the big yard! The right side is all fenced in, which is so important because of my sweet boy and dog. The one thing that I do hate about the yard is that there is no covered parking – no garage or carport, just a gravel driveway. I will eventually add a carport when I have some extra monies. There is a nice sized shed in the back side yard. Lots of good storage in there.

I am hoping to be in the end of April/beginning of May. I have to complete all of my renovations before I can move in. I just signed the counter-offer papers on Friday. I am just waiting on the appraisal before I can actually close and they said that usually takes about two weeks to order and have them come in and take a look. So, now I play some more of the waiting game.

Today’s prompt is “What would you do if you could do anything and have a “get out of jail free” card?

That’s kind of a tough one. I want to say something dramatic, like rob a bank or something – minus all of the “Get on the ground” with guns pointed at everyone type of thing. I’d like to have a bunch of money and just be able to buy whatever the hell I wanted. Money is my BIGGEST stressor right now. Everything always works out, but up until the point of it working out, I stress. Which is pretty much every day of the month. But it’s whatever. 

I’d just want to walk in, say “Hey, I have this get out of jail free card, so you should give me all the money you have.” I might even share some of it with them! I’d be the nicest “robber” they’d ever have to deal with. 

So, I guess that’s all for tonight. I can’t think of anything else good. And I really need to go to sleep. I’ve slept through my alarm for the last two days, so I need to wake up early tomorrow. Boooo. I just want to sleep in.

Nighty night!

Review: ItWorks Hair, Skin and Nail Pills

According to the September Blog Calendar, September 2nd is a day for a review. The prompt was something about a book you read this summer, but I didn’t read any, so I am going to give a review on the ItWorks! Hair, Skin and Nail pills.

My review on ItWorks! Hair, Skin and Nail pills and why I call it a rip off! | Two Million MilesDid I just ruin the ending for you? Oops. Keep reading to find out why I call it a rip off..

So, I’m sure you’ve all heard about these awesome, miracle pills! It seems like everyone is taking them. My Facebook and Insta feeds are full of the back of people’s heads showing how much their hair grew in just a month.

Yes, my hair did grow. I did notice a difference in that, but let me tell you something. I bought these because I am SIIIIIIICK of having this stupid teenage acne. I don’t have a million zits all over my face, but I have blackheads galore. I want them gone. It seems like I have tried every face wash known to man and nothing really helps. So, I thought I’d spend $38 a month on these pills. {Yes, they say $99 for three months, but after shipping and tax, it ends up being about $38.} That was the main reason for getting them. I wasn’t too worried about my hair. It’s already long and it grows pretty fast anyway, I just wanted to get rid of these damn blackheads.

I didn’t see even the SLIGHTEST difference in my skin. Not a one. I still have all these damn blackheads and I’m out all this money.

And can we talk about the ingredients?

 

HSN pill ingredient list. You're better off buying a bottle of Biotin for less than $10 at Walmart.

 

5000 mg of Biotin! Seriously? You’re better off just going to Walmart and buying a bottle of Biotin for less than $10. That’s what I am going to stick with from now on. Sure, it does have a little more vitamins and such, but you should be taking those every day anyway ;)

I know I mostly rambled, but do yourself and your “bill fold” a favor and save the money and just go to the good ole Wally World and get some Biotin and pop five of those babies a day.

Oh, and P.S. I didn’t see a difference in my nails either. Only my hurrrrr. And I saw that same difference when I was just taking regular Biotin.

Rant is over now. Promise. Nighty night!
