FAITH▪︎Happy Sunday my loves! What's that you say?...oh yes, some little peeks into my office. Loving the new chairs and rug soooo much😍 A few things I am always loving more though...yes, my guys for sure...but my faith trumps it all.
Today I woke up to an 80° day...because the Lord deemed it to be...amd I am grateful for it! If you're new here... let me tell you a few things about me. I love my family more than words can express. I was a competitive athlete, fitness model, trainer, and personal chef for 15 years. Decorating and DIY are EVERYTHING! And I have almost lost my life multiple times...I mean truly hours from death almost lost my life (3 times...with a few additional just dodged it). However the Lord wanted to use me...to use my story...and I can only believe that is to grow his kingdom. I will be sharing more and more of my story over on my website beginning next week. I truly hope you'll join me...in getting to know me more...and getting to know what fuels every day of my life🙏💙

🇺🇸Our tablescape for Memorial Day is giving us all the fun vibes! We are suckers for everything blue & white. This year’s celebration is looking a little different (and smaller) than last year. How do you plan to celebrate tomorrow? 🇺🇸

I don’t really have a theme for the house, but I like for things to flow. Sometimes it takes time and changing things up to figure out what you really want going on in your spaces. What fits for you. I’ve been wanting to add more gold and glass decor. This hourglass was the perfect piece to start with going towards that. If you want to shop my decor and fashion styles you can follow me over on LIKEtoKNOW.it (link in bio) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Also, If you missed it on my stories I did a simple DIY project with that wooden frame. It was originally a darker stained wood. I sanded it down and then gave it one coat of bleach. I love how it turned out. You can find it in my DIY highlights if your curious to see how.

I’ve been working non-stop on house projects all weekend, including finishing up this coat closet turned mini mudroom that I started last month. I was able to complete the entire project for $110! Swipe to see the Transformation.
Anyone else doing house projects on this long weekend? I can’t wait to release tomorrow.

Aperol Spritz on the balcony, don’t need to twist my arm! It’s seriously the perfect cocktail for this weekend. This weather is AMAZING!! I went for a very long walk around Lincoln Park, ate my Brazilian empanadas at a park while sipping on ice coffee. Btw, I stumbled upon this brazilian empanada / coffee shop during my walk. What a gem! I shared it in my Stories. Also, taking this photo was a struggle. Every photo I was squinting and so me staring at this delicious Aperol Spritz was the only good pic haha. How’s your weekend? #MDW#MemorialDayWeekend http://liketk.it/2PwhZ #firstname.lastname@example.org#LTKhome#LTKspring#StayHomeWithLTK
Fun fact, Sunday’s in our house consist of Lowe’s runs. Even if we don’t get anything, we love wandering around....especially when I meet fur friends!
This was my first trip to Lowe’s since March. And it felt so strange. I go through moments of feeling like things are getting back to normal... and then we go out in public...and everyone is in masks..and I remember that this is real life.
I only took my mask off for a quick pic, and made sure we were socially distant when I did. The part I hate most about wearing these masks is that no one sees when I’m smiling at them! I didn’t realize how big of a form of communication smiling really was until now.
Hopefully someday soon we can be mask free. But until then, we’ll keep on keeping on!
I hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday weekend!

Hanging with the family while they conspire to let me get eaten alive by our porch visitor. 🐍 If you missed stories yesterday, I about touched an anaconda or a king cobra or a black mamba, I don’t even know, all snakes are the same, in my opinion. It was actually a bull snake, but it scared the bejeezus out of me and had my heart racing for a good part of the day. I think my kids knew it was lurking behind the pillows all along🤦🏼♀️🤔 You know I have a ❤️ for so many of God’s creatures great and small, but snakes, I can’t say that I have a soft spot for them. My mom is scared to death of mice. Is there any animal, insect, etc. that scares you? // Like and comment with this week’s “secret” emoji 🐢 for a chance to win Pay Pal cash!

We started celebrating the holiday weekend a little early with lots of food, cocktails, + some of our favorite people ☀️ Now, we’re spur of the moment road tripping down to Florida with some of our best buds 🚙 —> 🌊
We’re already missing our Izzy girl, but a change of scenery felt seriously overdue🤍
Cheers to doing the things that bring us joy, sunshine, + the MDW! xo
My favorite place to chill out in the living room is right there on the loveseat. (Siting there now as I type this). It is just so comfy/cozy!
Do you have a favorite spot in your living room?
P.s. The tray is on sale right now from my linktree page and I also linked a similar ottoman that is also on sale right now! Click the link in my bio to check them out!

Still a work in progress but these days I just can’t wait to share 😋 I’ve been designing a ton of kids rooms during this quarantine. They’re so fun and I love seeing how the kids react! 🌟This one is for a 7 year old cutie who was ready for his big kid upgrade. If you swipe all the way you’ll see the “before” pic of the room that used to be a guest room.
I linked all the details of this room in LIKEtoKNOW.it so screen shot this pic or follow me there to find all the shopable links! 🌟Also, if you or your kiddo wants a room upgrade I’m doing virtual designs and FaceTime calls to help set up your space!

Interrupting the very intense colour decision currently happening in my stories (head there to weigh in plsssss 🙏🏻)
Yesterday I spontaneously painted this v subtle colour block arch in M’s room and I kinda love it! It’s so subtle that it’s barely noticeable but just the softest little hint of texture. Mila calls it her secret Snow White door 🧡🚪
FYI: it was trickier than I anticipated getting that arch drawn in and then painted freehand. Tell me; have you jumped on the colour block design train? I’m kind of loving the creative side of it! And I also love that it’s just paint 🎨🙌🏻
Sure going to miss this home! We signed contract last Tuesday on our new build, i can’t wait to take you all along on this ride! to say I’m not nervous would be a lie. We’ve built so many memories in this sweet home of ours, we bought this one year before we married, and brought both babies home from the hospital to this special place. To say I’ll miss it is an understatement but I’m ready for this next chapter in our lives and can’t wait to see our family grow into this new home together. #home#homesweethome#ltkhome#ltkkids#jeanjacket#stylediaries#ootd#babyboy#boymom#newchapter#brickhome#liketkit
Yesterday the CA governor approved Orange County’s request to begin phase 2 for businesses to open. I’m extremely relieved that I’m safe to venture out a bit more. It’s time to head out to my client projects and show you the amazing work that’s been done! Yay!🙌
At the same time, I’m also experiencing a mixed bag of emotions about going outside after so many weeks home with nearly zero contact with others.🥴
After much deep breathing, I remembered what I used to teach my therapy clients. I figure if I’m going through this, you might be as well.☺️
Here are some tools to combat fears:
1. Acknowledge what you’re feeling is NORMAL. You’re not crazy. Make list of feelings you’re going through to flush it out. Don’t hold things in.
2. Come back to your breathing. Do find yourself holding your breath alot? If I pay attention to myself, I am so surprised at how tense my shoulders are and how I hold in my breath alot. Invite fresh air into your lungs by breathing in deeply through your nose from your belly button and superficially from your mouth. Then hold for 3 seconds and exhale slowly and end with a loud audible SIGH.
3. After flushing out your feelings, make an actionable plan. Think of ways to control what you can, and exhale the things you can’t.
I hope you are all enjoying the wonderful long weekend. Remember you are way stronger than you think you are. I BELIEVE IN YOU!👊🏻 #AYMethod

Stores are slowly opening back up here in Manitoba and I was able to hit up a couple of them to do a little refresh on some of the spaces in my house. I snagged these pillows, I'm on a bit of a blue kick right now, and I thought these spruced up my space perfectly!
My never ending project: decorating and redecorating our open shelves 😂 I thought framing one of Zach’s photos would be a nice touch & I love the one he picked! 🤍 http://liketk.it/2Pw2J @liketoknow.it#liketkit#LTKhome#homedecor
My fav spot in our house! A great place for coffee drinking in the morning and wine drinking in the afternoon. Things are starting to slowly open back up here in Cali and although I love this little outdoor spot, I can’t wait to go out to a restaurant!! Who’s with me? 💛
I’m loving this condiment caddy from SunSquad at Target. This is great to hold items for your summer time grill outs. Not bad for $9.99, and comes in 3 beautiful colors. On the plus side, you can use it all year round for other uses. Great to organize schools or office supplies as well. 🌞

No booze was had today, but I did scrub the kitchen floors and clean out the bin so y’know, that’s something... It was one of those “tick off all the particularly gross chores that never usually get done” days 🙄 I think when the standard Tuesday morning “I hope you had a lovely long weekend” email openers come in imma lie and tell them it was great 🙈 But honestly in lockdown every day feels like a bank holiday! I hope you all are actually in the midst of a lovely long weekend regardless, hopefully it even looks a little bit like this setup, champagne and all 🥂

We are obsessed with this board that is 100% made of organic bamboo, Eco friendly, and its nonporous surface so it doesn’t stain or absorb odors. I am in love with its luxurious design that comes with a hidden drawer to hold the set of utensils/cheese knives.
It makes a great addition to any HOME and amazing gift ideas for any occasions, from housewarming, birthday, wedding, and Thanksgiving.
It is available on @amazon

breastfeeding. a labor of love.
Berkeley was 5 pounds 4 oz at birth. even though she wasn’t technically premature or need NICU time, she was on the small side. naturally it was very important for her to gain, and it was important to *me* to breast feed. I also wanted to build a freezer stash. so, we have been doing a lot of nursing and pumping for the past few months. this has helped us know just how much baby is getting while I also get to bond with her when I put her on the breast.
through lots of trial and error we finally got into a groove between nursing and pumping. click the link in my bio for my must have products for a successful breastfeeding experience! #linkinbio
Kut from Kente Tip #8 : Upgrade your dresser drawers, kitchen cabinets, or nightstands by switching up the knobs!
This is such a quick, easy, and affordable way to make your furniture look more luxe. These knobs were $4/each from @Wayfair. I wanted to switch these up in Baby Love’s room to match some of the other hardware I chose.
If you participated in my IG story poll last week you’ll notice I went with the Persian inspired rug. I actually wanted to get the Boho one but it was sold out! So far you guys are 2/2 with your choices!

I still have a few areas in my apartment that aren’t completely decorated!
Last week I showed my entryway transformation and I loved everyone’s feedback! I also bought a bar cart from @WorldMarket last weekend for $40 - it was originally $100! I was way too excited about it LOL. I’m debating between decorating my dining area, desk, or closet next.
What do you think I should tackle next?✨ http://liketk.it/2Pw9T @email@example.com#ltkhome#liketkit

I’ve been trying to figure out how to decorate my tiny entry way for a while now. I went to @Marshalls yesterday and found this $60 bench and knew I needed it for my space! It matched the rug I got a while ago on sale for $10 @urbanoutfitters perfectly! The only other item I purchased was the $10 tan pillow from @worldmarket
Sometimes it just takes one item to pull everything together! ✨ http://liketk.it/2Pw8P @firstname.lastname@example.org#liketkit#ltkhome

Kut from Kente Tip #6 : Use plants to fill hard to style corners & awkward spaces
Whether real or faux, plants are the perfect way to freshen up those awkward spaces in your place! It could be a window sill, a small entryway, or on top of those annoying A/C units - a plant will do the trick! I needed a way to hide my TV cord and I didn’t feel like buying a cable cover so I wrapped it around my faux plant instead. 🤷🏾♀️ Leave a comment below if you can find it! ✨
If you missed my insta stories yesterday I shared some great finds from Target, Ross, and HomeGoods. You can watch them in my KFK Steals highlight! There were so many cute things I wanted to buy but I gave myself a $20 budget so I didn’t go crazy. Have y’all seen the meme that says “it really costs $100 to go outside”? It’s so true! 😂 I’ve been meaning to go thrift shopping in the Bay, so I’ll definitely take you all along when I finally go. Anyway, check out my steals below ✨
I am answering questions about my bedroom and newly remodeled bathroom in my stories. Meanwhile, this continues to be our makeshift office while Tony works from here most days.
