Meet Megan

Hi! I’m Megan, mom to a thoughtful teenager and spunky young girl. We call Houston home and recently moved into our dream home. I traded my lawyer hat to become a full-time blogger in 2010. I love sharing my passion for affordable fashion, home decor, organization, & fitness to help inspire you to take care of you!


  1. Glad to hear everyone escaped the shattered glass! I saw those lamps while I was at Home Goods yesterday. Love them!! Can't wait to see what fabric you pick for the drapes.

  2. Sorry to hear about your lamp, but glad to know you found another one. It reminds me of the one I have (but paid more for!). You got a great deal for $49!

  3. Love the new lamp! Oooh, I have a few things in my home I wish would "break" so I could replace them with new stuff. Maybe I'll have to have some more playdates!

  4. glad no one was hurt and I could have guessed that Brittany would ask if you could make another! You know she would/could have!

    I am lovin the new lamp. I may need to make a trip to my HG today 🙂

  5. Love the blue lamps. Hate that your other lamp broke but I like the blue better. It is the perfect pop of color! Hope you have a great weekend, Megan!

  6. Sometimes the bad news brings good news and I love love your new lamp-the little hit of colour is fabulous!

  7. Your lamp isn't wrecked! Go to an antique store that specializes in lamps. They sell replacement glass lids. You can find GORGEOUS ones! 🙂

  8. Glad no babies were hurt in the lamp debacle. But, I must say that I LOVE the new lamps! I can't wait until we rearrange our living room so that I can buy some lamps from Home Goods. They have so many cute ones! Enjoy your weekend, girlie! 🙂

  9. Sorry to hear about your lamp. We haven't had lamps in our living space since my oldest got mobile about four years ago. One day, we'll once again enjoy the soft glow of lamplight, but for now, all the light we need comes from the decor-busting gleam in my boys' eyes!

  10. LOVE the blue one!!!

    and who says you have to use a glass shade on the broken lamp? good excuse to switch it up!

  11. Congratulations to Elizabeth! I'm glad nobody got hurt and I love the new aqua lamps. Very pretty! It'll be fun to see what fabric you decide on for your drapes. Have a great weekend, Megan.

  12. Love the new blue lamp…wish we had a Home Goods store nearby. I wonder if you could replace the broken glass shade with a regular fabric shade? Either way, it will be a fun project! 🙂

  13. Sorry to hear about the old lamp, but I love the new one! Do you know when HG gets their shipments in? I need to start hitting it up on those days (although, I may find myself getting into more trouble than I already do there!). Bring your fabric samples over — I would love to see them!
