5 Tips for a Pretty Desk by A Girl, Obsessed – I don’t know if you have seen the pics I’ve posted on Instagram of my desk, but pretty is definitely not a part of it! I love these tips….maybe I can even make my own workspace a bit prettier with the ideas!

24 Reasons Why Having Less Can Make You a Happier Person by A Fresh Start On a Budget – I love this! While I still have a lot of decluttering left to do in my home, I try not to buy as much anymore. Partly for budget reasons and part because I want to reduce the amount of things, not add to them. Great read!

We’re All A Work In Progress. (But This Might Help…) by Monica Swanson – A wonderful read and a good reminder to give yourself some grace to not have it all figured out. Sometimes we can start a new project or enter a new time in our lives and expect to already have it down, have it all perfect. And then beat ourselves up when we don’t. This post is a great discussion into why we should be more understanding of ourselves and our lives.

Rustic Wood Bathtub Tray by Pretty Handy Girl – This is such a cute and simple project! One of my favorite things to do for self-care is a long bubble bath and this would be perfect to use with one!
