LIVING ROOM UPDATE

Recently Jamie and I had decided that it was time to get a new fan for our living room.  The one we had was a bit dated and just wasn’t working very well.  As you know we live in Florida and we need all the breeze we can get during these hot summer days!  Also, I noticed that every time I cooked bacon or anything that had to be cooked in a skillet, the house would smoke up causing the smoke alarms to go off. To avoid this we would turn on the fan and open the back door, but the fan would barely move the smoke out of the living room and it would take forever for it to clear out.  That being said, it was definitely time for an update!

We looked at several different styles of fans out there and finally found one that would fit our home decor best.  The fan we chose is Casa Delta from Lamps Plus in an oil rubbed bronze which looks more like black wrought iron.  The blades are my favorite part, they span to 66″ and they are made of real wood.  They kind of look like a boat propeller.  Another cool feature that had us excited was the light feature with LED.  No more changing out light bulbs!  This was a huge plus because it’s so annoying when you have to unscrew the light dome, replace the burnt out light bulbs, and then put the dome back on while trying to keep your balance on a ladder and not getting dust everywhere (side note: I’m really bad about dusting the fan).

When our shipment arrived we planned a good day when we were both off to install it.  Well mostly Jamie installed it and I just handed him screws, haha! Putting it together wasn’t very challenging either.  The hardest part was getting all the wires into the base but other than that I’d say it was pretty easy and the directions were very detailed to guide us through the process.

It was amazing to see how such a small detail like a fan could transform a room.  I would never have thought about fan shopping when it comes to home decor and to be quite honest before I thought fans were pretty boring but now I’m singing a different tune.

It’s so much fun to do little projects like these around the house and I find it brings Jamie and I closer together and builds teamwork in the process.  Now I’ve got the fever and I’m wanting to work on all of our spaces! Hope you have a great weekend!

Do you have any small projects/updates you are currently working on in your home?  I’d love to hear all about them in the comments! 

Cheers-  Ashley Nicole

  • Here is some advice for all my SINGLE LADIES out there! 
Earlier today, I had a discussion with some younger co-workers of mine and I feel like you may relate and probably need to be told this so keep reading! One of the girls stated that she’s never had a good relationship and wanted to meet a nice guy. 
Another girl made a remark about the kind of guys she dated when she was her age and then asked me what kind of relationships I had when I was the other girl’s age and I told them the truth. I dated a very nice guy for 4 1/2 years when I was her age. At one point, I honestly thought that we would marry someday, but I was so young/still trying to figure out who I was and what I wanted my adult life to be like. Eventually we didn’t agree on the same things and grew apart. It ended well and I wish him well. Later after I had a few relationships, that also did not last and it was all for good reason. I feel like I was able to learn something from my past relationships that allowed me to be ready when I was meant to meet my husband which I have been married to for 10 years now. So the next time you look back at those past relationships and you’re looking for a nice guy, just know you’re one relationship closer to meeting the one and when you do you will know it and you will be ready for it! Just know your worth and never lower your standards because you feel like you have to to make it work. Always stay true to yourself because if you’re not, it will not be you they have fallen in love with. Like @arianagrande sings...Thank you, NEXT!

  • Lately, I’ve been reading a ton of wellness articles about the benefits of collagen powder and how women in their 30’s produce less collagen naturally which can start to effect your skin and so on. Ever since I read that. Ive been wanting to give it a try... The one I chose to put to the test is called Gym and Tonic and it’s a collagen protein powder by @tonicproducts 
I started adding 2 scoops into my blueberry banana smoothies in the mornings which has been so great because I’m guilty of never eating breakfast unless it’s brunch or brinner and I’m always rushing to get out the door and to work on time! 
Not only is it free of soy, dairy, gluten, and artificial hormones, but you can also rest assured that their ingredients have all been responsibly sourced. And here’s the bonus, it contains 18 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce on their own which combined will help with hair, skin, nail growth, joint pain, and good gut health! Winning!

So glad I finally tried it, and I will def be adding it into my daily routine. 
P.S. I’ve shared a Mango Smoothie Pop recipe in my stories/highlights that this would be perfect in x beating the summer heat with a sweet treat! 😉
