Wayfair Bar Cart

It's Wednesday aka Hump Day. Last week I said that I was going to post a picture of the bar cart that I bought from Wayfair. I was originally going to buy a side board for the wall by the dining room table. The sideboard I wanted ended up being too big so, getting a bar cart was the best option for the moment since I have no formal China or serving ware yet that needs to be stored. This is the cart before I put anything on the other shelves.
The bar cart is sold out now. 

At first I wanted the white cart (pictured below) but with the white walls (for the moment until we decide to paint) it would blend together. 
The shelves are made of glass. Champagne flute rack is on the second level and a wine rack that holds three bottles on the bottom.  By accident, I put the wine rack on backwards. Luckily, I have a small wine rack I found at World Market. Mostly, I store my wine and liquor in the wine chiller that my mom bought for me. 

Here is where some of the items on the cart are from: Cocktail shaker and bar accessories, Wine Rack (similar), Wine Glasses, Champagne flutes, Wine Glasses (similar), Initial Platter.

I'll post the rest when it is completely done. I still have a post I need to get framed and matted for the area. just waiting for Hobby Lobby to have their frames on sale again (since I know that the frame plus the custom mat will be on the high end).

Peace & blessings, all. I would love to know if anyone else has a bar cart instead of a sideboard or if you have both & why.

This is my opinion of the bar cart. All opinion are mine  & I did not receive any compensation for my opinion.

Thoughtful Thursday

As of late, I have been the biggest slacker ever!!!!! Productivity........ At work: yes. Not so much in my life outside of work. I have two bookshelves to put up plus curtains and blinds. Numerous people I know have told me it takes time to fully unpack a house. Some people have said that is could take months (which is definitely not happening),

Since procrastination has become my middle name, I decided that today's thoughts that I picked would be appropriate. Most of them are about time and using it well. Here are some quotes from Pinterest this week:





Time to write my paper and try to me more productive with my school work, posting more on the blog, and in other aspects of my life.
Peace & Blessings all! Have a great Thursday!!

Fitness Tuesday

It's Tuesday. Last week, I did have a bunch of post planned for last week but, I had a due (per the usual) on Monday and an essay test on Tuesday. On top of that, I am still doing all of my mom's errands until she can walk on her foot. Being busy is so not fun.

Anywho,  I have been going to the gym regularly for the most part. For some reason, I always focus on my legs, glutes, and abs. As women, we tend to forgot our backs and shoulders Here are some of my favorite back and shoulder exercises from Pinterest:

I know that summer is gone but you can have great back and shoulders all year round. Everyone should get excited because tomorrow I'm revealing my bar cart that I got almost two weeks ago.

Peace & Blessing, all. Have a great Tuesday!!!

Fitness Tuesday

Now that it is officially fall (YAY!!) I can start cooking more seasonal dishes. By now, everyone should know how much I love cooking & eating too. I am always looking for new recipes when a new season starts.

 This is going to be short & sweet since I have a paper to write. One of my go-to websites for great foods recipes are from Delish. I like that I can take one of the recipes that they have & make changes to make it healthier (less cheese, air frying the grease out, etc). These are a few of the recipes that I have to try making when I get a chance this Fall:

Healthy Chicken Casserole

Spinach Lasagna

Lemon Pepper Chicken

Cheesy Spinach-Artichoke Quesadillas

In case anyone did not know: I have A LOT of random kitchen appliances. I mean A LOT!!!!! That is including a quesadilla maker. Makes life a little easier. The only food I am missing is pumpkin. A pumpkin cheesecake definitely is being made in the future.

Peace & blessings, all!!! Have a great Tuesday.

Home buys: Wayfair

Happy Monday & October!!! It is so hard to believe that we only have two months left in 2017. There have been a few reasons I have been M.I.A: work, school is kicking my butt (research critiques are not fun at all), still finishing unpacking which is 70% done, plus I've finally decided to start planning my wedding. 

Wedding planning had been put on hold until we finished getting the house the in order. One thing that I have found helpful is ordering furniture online #obsessed. Since I really have no time to go furniture shopping in real life, I have made the decision to start looking at some online sited. My favorite place to get it from is Wayfair.

Recently, I just bought a few more pieces. I plan to get some other items we have been waiting on since we need a large amount of them. Bookshelves are the main item since we need about 6. We have A LOT of books. Here are some of the items I bought:

Our bed is one of the adjustable ones. Finding a headboard was a little tough due to the bed having to be on a certain base. We found out that if we found a headboard, brackets just need to be attached to the base of the bed. I found this one, which is on sale right now. I originally wanted a black headboard, but since the curtains in the room are black, that's would be way too much black going on.

I got this table in black for our little entry area. We put a lamp & some of the crystal my fiancee's grandmother gave him on the bottom. It cute & eventually if we need more storage, do like in the picture & put baskets on the bottom part.

Trying to find a sideboard that is one: not super expensive & two: was what I wanted for the space I wanted to put the bar in was not easy task. I found some that I liked but I really did not want spend $500 or more for one at the moment. I decided to get a bar cart instead. My mom bought me a wine chiller (I use it for wine & liquor).

I looked a few and found the one above. I have a twelve set of stemless wine glasses & champagne flutes that I need to place somewhere. Pictures will be posted as soon as get the poster I want framed up. The cart is suppose to be here on Wednesday so probably next week is when I will post them. When I purchased the cart I also decided to buy this:

I already had a shaker but now that I am "an adult" its time I got a real bar set. This one is going to do for the moment. It is a great price for all that you get with it. 
There are a few other things that I plan to buy from them or Joss and Main

Peace & blessings all!!I would love to know if anyone else been furniture shopping online recently?
