Hi Friends! Happy Friday! I love a short school week because it means Friday seems to get here quicker! I hope you had a great week. It’s time for Friday Favorites which includes favorites in home, style and family!

One of my favorites of the week was a new wrap bracelet I ordered from Victoria Emerson. I have seen these bracelets around but this is the first one I have gotten. It is even prettier in person then online and I am so happy with how it looks.

This jade colored wrap bracelet will be fun for summer outfits. It really goes with everything.

The bracelets are really easy to put on and you just wrap it around your wrist as many times as you can. So many styles and colors to choose from that I am already thinking about the next one I would order!

I love jewelry that is simple but makes a statement. These bracelets add a little fun to any outfit.


Earlier this week, I shared some cute Front Door Welcome Mats! I rounded up 12 new doormats for springtime! We are just under a month away until Spring and I am ready for it!

There are so many fun doormats out right now and I ended up getting this Hello Cherry Doormat! Now, I am already thinking about how I will style our porch using this doormat. If you are planning to get a new welcome mat, now is the time to purchase one as the cute ones sell out early!

Welcome mats are great way to make a good first impression as you enter your home! For less than $15 in most cases, you can make a big impact with your entryway.


This week we started with some sunshine and I have to say it makes such a HUGE difference in everyone’s mood. Now, as I write this, I am watching snow come down. Spring is still a month away but I am already thinking ahead to this cheerful season!

While I was picking up my new doormat I checked out some faux spring florals. I wanted a few new floral stems for some vases around the house. These yellow stems are so pretty and I love how they brighten my family room.

While, I am not decorating for spring just yet, I am transitioning a few things around the house including flowers and maybe pillows:)


My daughter turned 13 a few weeks ago and she really wanted to have a balloon garland (for photos) for her party. I will admit that I was a little nervous about creating a balloon garland. There are a ton of tutorials on Pinterest. I started with one tutorial that involved fishing wire. Within a few minutes, my garland was not shaping up like it was supposed to.

So, I searched a little more and found the EASIEST solution. This $5 balloon garland tape was the answer!

I can not even believe how it is was to use. You put the ends of the balloon into little holes in the tape and within 15 minutes you can have an impressive balloon garland!

How to make a cheap DIY balloon garland

I am hooked on balloon garlands now. I spent less than $10 on balloons, so all told the project was around $15.

The hardest part is hanging the balloon garland. We used thread to weave it into the garland and then hung from the curtain rod. You could also you Command Wall Hooks. We loved how it turned out so much that it is still hanging up:)



This week’s Clear the Clutter Challenge included Laundry Room Organization. I mentioned that I have a really small space and it is far from glamorous. But, when I saw these cute Laundry Accessories it had me wishing I had a fun laundry room!

If your laundry room could use a little refresh, you first step is to declutter and organize. Then, you might want to add a cute decor element or two! It just “might” make laundry a little more exciting:) These laundry signs are so cute!

    Love your bracelet. That garland tape looks like a lifesaver. So cool. Have a great weekend!

      I was VERY happy to find the garland tape…fortunately I still have a lot of tape left over for the next party.

    • Jaclyn on February 22, 2020 at 7:27 am

      Thanks Andrea–the tape was truly a game changer!

    That’s a great bracelet! I just got some daffodils from Trader Joe’s and it feels like spring.

    • Jaclyn on February 21, 2020 at 8:27 am

      I LOVE daffodils. The countdown to spring begins!

    I need to get on the doormat bandwagon. (I just hate how the sisal carries in the house.) Your balloon garland turned out absolutely adorable and I’ll be remembering (hopefully) the tape stuff to make it. Happy weekend! XO

      Good point on the Sisal–I haven’t thought of that (or noticed it really). Maybe you could just stick to the large -indoor outdoor rug style!

    I just bought my first Emerson wrap bracelets in January and I love them!

    • Jaclyn on February 21, 2020 at 12:24 pm

      Aren’t they so pretty! I have seen them around for a while but since I hadn’t seen them in person, I wasn’t sure about ordering. I love them now.

    Oh, my goodness! Who knew balloon garland tape was a thing? I really like the script “hello” doormats, for some reason they look easy, breezy.
