Weekend Inspiration: No.100

Boho mid-century console styling

Well, it’s my second favorite day of the week (Saturday being my favorite, of course), and I’ve got big plans! Mom and I are making the 40-minute drive out to Trader Joe’s this morning for an extra special grocery shopping trip. I have been locked up in the house since March and haven’t been to a single grocery store since lockdown started, so this is a pretty major deal. I have a feeling that I’ll come home panicked from being in public and won’t venture back out for weeks and weeks, but it’ll be worth it to have those TJ favorites restocked in our cabinet.

Anyway, that’s the biggest excitement on my to-do list this Friday morning! Keep scrolling to find out what else is inspiring us ahead of the weekend, and if you’ve got a cool project, home tour, or video of your own to share, do tell us all about it in the comments.

Weekend Inspiration: No.100

1. I just recently added this candle to my collection, and it’s my new favorite scent. I love that my purchase goes toward supporting an amazing Black-owned small business on Etsy, too! (those are not an affiliate links, by the way)

2. Although I don’t think we’ll ever realistically be able to live in a tiny house, I’ve become completely enamored by the Living Big In A Tiny House YouTube channel. This particular tiny house tour blew me away, and left me feeling so inspired.

3. Did you see on Instagram that we just added this new rug to our dining room? I love, love, love it—especially since it cost less than $140. The full “official” reveal is coming to the blog next month, so stay tuned.

4. You might have noticed that the photos in today’s post look a little “branded.” They’re from a collaboration I did with Glade and Target that was scheduled to just publish on social media, but I hated the idea of the photos that I worked so hard on going to waste here on the blog. I’m not being paid to say anything today, but I just wanted to reiterate that we really do love that handy little automatic scent sprayer!

5. Ashley’s entryway makeover for One Room Challenge is so stunning. Can you even handle that gorgeous blue paint color and wallpaper?! Check out the before/after photos this way.

6. One of the most frequently asked questions I get here on the blog and over on Instagram is where we got the piece of art over our console (the one you see in today’s post photos). It’s actually our Samsung Frame TV, and currently we have this piece that we ordered digitally from Juniper Print Shop displayed on it. It’s so much fun to switch the art up on the TV whenever we feel like it. Definitely couldn’t recommend this television more!

5 Reasons To Use A Home Humidifier

I know the phrase, “since we’ve been spending a lot more time at home,” is beyond cliche at this point, but I can’t help starting today’s post with exactly that because the truth is that we are spending a lot more time at home! And all of that extra downtime in our house has given us lots of extra time to consider how we can make it a better place for us to live in.

I’m sure you guessed from the post title, but I’m going to be talking alllllllll about humidifiers. John and I both suffer from allergies, so we’ve used a humidifier intermittently in our bedroom for years, but before the Crane USA team reached out to us for a partnership, I don’t think I really understood why (not to mention how to keep humidifiers properly sanitized in the long run). Keep scrolling for the scoop on our new Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier and why we’ve started using it every day.

5 Reasons To Use A Home Humidifier:

1. They help relieve congestion: One thing I probably don’t need to mention? That we’re in the midst of a serious global health crisis! I know I’m not alone when I say that we’re doing everything we possibly can to stay safe and healthy. The idea that a humidifier can help keep flu and cold symptoms at bay is a game-changer, and the number one reason why we’re staying on top of our humidifier usage (and the disinfecting of said humidifier—tips for doing that are this way).

2. Humidifiers help quell snoring: These handy little devices help relieve annoying congestion, which, of course, means they can stop snoring, too. He’s going to kill me for bringing this up, but I used to say I’d do just about anything to keep John’s nasal passages quiet at night. Since we started using a humidifier, that hasn’t been an issue anymore!

3. Promote good health in pets: We have four fur babes in our household, so when I found out that humidifiers are good for their health in addition to ours, I jumped right on board the humidifier train. They help clear your pets’ congestion, plus the additional moisture in the air helps keep dry skin issues to a minimum. NOTE: Always check with your vet if you have questions about adding a humidifier to your pet’s routine.

4. Humidifiers offer stress relief: I don’t know about you, but my stress level has been quite a bit higher these days. To help with that, I recently started adding calming essential oils to the Crane USA Cool Mist Humidifier I keep in my meditation room at home. Twenty drops of lavender oil fills the space with soothing scent in addition to that calming humidity, and I can’t get enough of it. Another cool thing about this particular humidifier is that it has a color-changing setting, which is so soothing to watch in the evening when it gets dark. Check my stories on Instagram today to see that feature in action.

5. They keep indoor tropical plants looking vibrant: I’m the proud plant mom of 28 indoor potted plants, and our home just wouldn’t feel the same without them. Knowing that a humidifier can improve the health of our favorite tropical plants makes me want to get one for every room. You’ve probably heard that plants can purify your air. Well, it seems only right to return the favor and give them an environment with the proper humidity that they’ll love to live in, too.

Have you tried regular use of a humidifier in your home? Before, I used to only pull ours out of storage when one of us had a cold or started feeling under the weather. But I’m finding that everyday use is better for us. There are so many benefits that I just didn’t know about, and it’s one of those nightly routines that I don’t think I’ll be able to go without ever again.

If you have any questions, leave them in the comments below and I (or someone from the Crane USA team) will make sure to get back to you. Another great resource that I’ve been using a lot lately as I get used to our upgraded humidifier is the brand’s blog. There are tons of great articles to read that go into things like properly cleaning a humidifier, more reasons to use one in the first place, plus tips for promoting good health and wellness. It could just be the perfect time to try it out!
