I recently bought a house with my husband, and have done more shopping than I expected to, and spent way more money than I expected as well. I’m told that all of this is normal.

So, what did I buy? Let’s get into it!

Zinus Suzanne Metal and Wood King Bed Frame. I will never regret upgrading to a king bed, I love it!

Command Picture-Hanging Strips. I’ve only used one set of these so far, but they were great. I’ll circle back when I decide to remove them from the wall.

BN-LINK Wireless Remote Control Outlet Kit. We got these to sort out selected outlets that don’t have a switch affiliated with them. A cute and simple solution.

Thermacell Mosquito Repelling Lantern. This was recommended by a colleague and we think it works? Plus, it’s cute.

Generic magic eraser sponges, set of 50! I think now that I might not have needed 50, but I have a basement for storage and now I won’t have to buy any more for at least a few years.

Krud Kutter, as recommended by Apartment Therapy. It doesn’t have a terrible smell and does good work in the kitchen!

Gorilla Grip Gripper Pad, for under the rug in my dressing room. So far, this is working excellently.

Marble-look contact paper. I had to recover the shelves in my linen closet, and this did the trick! It’s a bit more expensive than some of the other options online, but the quality is really great.

I have more items that I’ve purchased, naturally, but I intend to create some future posts about creating spaces in my home from start to finish, something I haven’t had so much experience with before!

I am a new homeowner, and planning to move into said house comes along with a LOT of shopping. It sounds fun, and mostly is, but I have seen some unfortunate e-commerce shopping experiences. One of them is a quick one that I saw recently on AllModern.com.

Look at this beautiful area rug! I am into it, and I just had some hardwood floors refinished so I need to find a beautiful way to protect them a bit. However, then I clicked “select rug size” and saw this menu:

There are no sizes. There are no sizes on the size menu!

This appears to be an issue on the site in general, because this rug’s page also has the same problem.

I can’t imagine I am the first person to run into this issue! I truly love that rug and would like to purchase it, but I do need to know more about the size options. Luckily, it should be a fairly quick fix forĀ AllModern.com to implement.

*UPDATE*

Within one day of sharing this blog post with AllModern.com on Twitter, they have fixed this issue on their website! I love how responsive they were.

Video Shopping: Jessica Alba’s House, Part 3

by Jamie Sanford on June 17, 2019


I recently watched this Architectural Digest video where Jessica Alba takes you on a tour of her $10M Los Angeles home. Since it has been a while, I thought a video shopping post was in order. Unfortunately, Jessica Alba has a lot of items that must be sourced from some magical location where everything is one of a kind, because I had trouble with some of these! I have included items that have similar features or themes, or that would make a good option at a lower price point.

My Picks from the Pier 1 Holiday Clearance Sale

by Jamie Sanford on December 28, 2018

It’s late December, which means it is time to stock up on cute holiday decor for next year at wonderfully-reduced prices. Pier 1 Imports always has a great selection of beautiful and sometimes very quirky holiday items, but the prices they start at tend to be quite high for something you will likely only see for a few weeks each year.

Now is the perfect time to shop their holiday clearance event, with up to 60% off on holiday items! I was extra excited to see that they have fall/Halloween items still available as well.

Here are some of my favorite items included in the sale. Happy shopping!
