Would love to have one of these in our kitchen to keep us a...

Elsie’s Go-To Skincare Products

I LOVE skincare. I could go on and on and ON about it. I love it so much! In today’s post, I am narrowing it down to my current go-to or favorite for each category. These are items I use daily and religiously. I am dividing them up by morning and night routine—the night routine is of course, much more important! I hope you enjoy a peek into my medicine cabinet. Please let me know if you have any favorites as many of these I discovered via recommendations online! When recently asked to describe m...

Fibromyalgia and Anxiety

Fibromyalgia is a common disease affecting about 3-6% of the world’s population of which 75-90% are women. There is no test to diagnose the condition. Most of the time, symptoms can be mistaken other organic pain disorders. But even with the right diagnosis, the disease does not have a cure and one has to live with the pain. This book is inspired by Elsie Ijorogu Reed’s story on how she has lived with and managed Fibromyalgia for the past 17 years. It creates awareness of the disease and explai...

Elsie’s Clean Makeup Routine

It’s been a while since I shared my makeup routine here, and I have changed things up quite a bit. I LOVE trying new products and the clean beauty space has been exploding with great products for the past several years. With this update, I finally am using both a clean foundation and concealer (which in the past was an area I had trouble making clean swaps). I also found some really amazing brow products recently that have made a big difference, as my microblading has really faded away (I will g...

Elsie’s 2021 Project List

Wooo! This is one of my FAVORITE posts to write and share every year because I LOVE goals and I love planning. Sharing it here gives me a clear marker to look back on at the end of each year. Multi-year renovations are a whirlwind. There are phases of fatigue, phases of overwhelm and definitely a lot of ups and downs. It’s easy to get clouded and feel discouraged by day-to-day progress, but when you zoom out it feels a lot more encouraging because you can see how all the little projects are addi...

Elsie’s Main Bath (Mini) Makeover

Hello! Today, I am excited to share our mini makeover with you! Due to Covid and other remodel priorities, we aren’t planning to fully gut and remodel this bathroom for a while (most likely 3-5 years and it is the last room on our list!). Since we won’t be remodeling for a long time, we wanted to do a quick mini makeover to address the functional issues and make it feel closer to our style for the time being. Mini makeovers (often called “phase one”) are very challenging because our goal was to ...

10 Things I Love Sunday

The holiday season is officially over and that’s a very hard thing to explain to a 3-year-old, haha! While I hate taking down all the lights and glitter, I’m trying to think of fun things to focus on instead of all the winter we have left before spring hits … this may be our biggest Valentine’s Day celebration we’ve ever had at home! Here are some other things bringing me joy this week: This is my organizational weapon for the new year. Label everything!! It really does help and makes things e...

Elsie’s Dining Room Progress

We moved in late August and it’s now … *looks at watch* … December. Wow. Four months?! It feels like four years. But it also feels like four weeks. Time has no meaning anymore … that’s my real takeaway. Unlike other homes we’ve lived in, in the past, we moved into this home immediately as soon as we got the keys. Typically, we would do some renovations first, but not this time. It was a functional choice as was our decision to move—it was one big Covid pivot. The house has some wonderful feature...

Elsie’s Office Coffee Station (Office Tour–Part One!)

I’m SO EXCITED (sorry for yelling) because this is the first truly completed space in my home!!!!!! This is our first big reveal! Today, I’m partnering with Delta Faucet to show you how I gave this little coffee bar a fresh new look. You probably know but Delta is my go to faucet brand and we’ve had them in our past homes so we knew they’d be perfect in this space. Before we dive in, though, I have to remind you how it looked just a few months back when we purchased the home. This is kind of an ...

10 Things I Love Sunday

Happy weekend, friends! I hope you’re finding some joy for yourself today. Here are 10 things I have been loving lately: Get yourself a disco ball! I have one that is basically a leftover photo prop (see above) and I’m realizing this is an excellent piece of holiday/anytime decor. Look how the light catches it in the late afternoon! It even makes my popcorn ceilings look a little magical. Let’s talk advent calendars. I love a good homemade advent like this and this one. But, I also decided to bu...

Elsie’s Holiday Living Room Tour

Ah! I love the holidays. A big part of the magic, for me, is taking a full week to two weeks to set up all my stuff and get it just right. This is our first year in our new home, which is always an exciting one! Around November 1, we pulled out all our holiday decor and since then I have been slowly adding, tweaking and setting up our living spaces. This post is sponsored by JOANN. JOANN is my favorite craft store, but they have so much more than just supplies. They also carry a great assortment...
