It may not feel like it (it has been so chilly in Upstate NY lately), but spring is in full force. I have been able to test out some new products that are perfect for giving your home that spring refresh.
Spring Bedroom Refresh
I love to change out our bedding with the warmer seasons. And there is nothing better than slipping into a freshly made bed with new bedding and pillows. I just switched out all of our pillows to StayLoftTM Organic Cotton Cover Pillows by Pacific Coast. They are 100% Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified organic cotton cover. The pillow cover helps to block any dust mites and is woven to help keep the down in place.
With some new pillows and the fresh spring air, you’ll be sure to get a good night’s rest.
I always get the urge to open all the windows and spring clean every nook and cranny of my home. I love these nontoxic cleaning wipes from Boulder Clean. They are plant-based and 100% nontoxic meaning they are free of any quats, bleach, alcohol, ammonia and formaldehyde and have been shown to disinfect 99.9% of bacteria and viruses.
I use them to wipe down any counters and surfaces, they’re perfect for disinfecting my bike seat after a sweaty ride, and I keep a pack in my car too!
What’s spring without some gardening? Honestly, there’s nothing more fulfilling than watching something grow and blossom that you started from seed. Whether you’re an expert or maybe have no gardening experience at all, this Indoor Herb Garden Starter Kit is great for growing your own herbs. Everything you need is all in this kit! Enjoy growing your own basil, cilantro, sage, parsley and thyme.
This fresh linen Lulu candle is the perfect spring scent to freshen up your home. These candles are soy based, all vegan and paraben free with a long lasting burn time.

Meet margarita’s ruby red cousin – the Paloma. Personally, I think it’s more refreshing than a traditional marg and I love the pink color. This pineapple grapefruit paloma is a refreshing, sweet twist.
Serve it up for Cinco de Mayo, lounging poolside, brunching with your girlfriends or just about any time.

We’re in the process of re-doing our deck and I have been putting together some ideas as to how I want to furnish and decorate it. I decided to create a mood board to have all of my thoughts in one place and try to help me envision the final product. I’ve linked everything below (more so for me so it’s easier when I shop but also if you see anything that sparks your eye too!)
