Pinterest is a huge help in my day-to-day life, I use stuff from it every single day from recipes to fitness routines to just cool lifestyle ideas. Every week I like to round up a few things that I really liked recently.

I actually found this recipe while I was doing research for an article I was writing on turmeric. This is Turmeric Falafel and it sounds super easy to make!

I tried this recipe for microwave cookies. They didn’t turn out too well for me, if someone else tries them, let me know how they went!

I love the color yellow but it’s never been a good color on me sadly.

I would never be able to wear this romper, but it is gorgeous!

And for dessert, this amazing looking Cookies and Cream Cheesecake.

I’m always looking for cleaning schedules I’m not going to follow, this seems simple enough.

This is a big one for me, I don’t want my kids to be so dependent on technology.

When the cleaning schedule fails and you have guests coming…

I adore tortellini and spinach but I can’t stand butternut squash. This might be good?

More tortellini with spinach and shrimp.

With a little one on the way, I really need to get into a cleaning routine. This one seems very in depth while at the same time not doing too much in one day. Maybe once I get my energy back.

This is the most adorable thing ever.

I always pin all these delicious looking veggie burgers but never actually go to the trouble of making them.

These are sardine cakes. I adore sardines, and these are made with mashed potatoes and breadcrumbs. Sounds delicious!

A long time ago I used to buy frozen mini quiche to pop in the microwave and they were sooooo good. I might have to try these and see if they come close. (Also if anyone could tell me where to find the mini quiche again, that would be amazing. Now I want quiche).

I love this spring/summer dressing the bump look. It looks laid back and easy.

I wish I could put together a wardrobe like this without spending $500. I’m having the hardest time finding maternity clothes in general, let alone affordable ones. Luckily I don’t need it just yet because my wardrobe at the moment is just one pair of maternity jeans, two pairs of yoga pants and some empire waist tops that will hold me over for a while.

I needed a quick side dish the other night for a dinner we were making for my parents, and this fit the bill. So good! I’m not a fan of cooked carrots much but they were still crisp.

I’m always on the hunt for more shrimp recipes.

This poem tells about a hard truth a lot of people need to or will eventually learn, to just walk away from a bad situation.

I’m not into the whole ‘food is medicine’ thing, but what I do believe is that food is preventative medicine. What you eat matters, and the ‘regarded as safe’ ingredients should still probably be avoided.

Food:

I love this vegetarian stir fry dish.

It’s no secret that spinach is my favorite vegetable but I also love edamame, and who doesn’t like rice?

I often mix avocado with tuna, or spread it on top of sardines, and this looks delicious too.

I love how simple yet elegant this dress is.

These shoes are so colorful! Very color block, is that still a thing? I remember a few years ago color blocking was a huge trend.

Another simple and elegant long skirt.

This was an inspiration for our bathroom redo that I showed off last week.

Our Bathroom Makeover!

So we bought a house last summer, and have been working on it ever since. There’s been a ton of painting and replacing old things, and just all sorts of minor renovations. The house was built in the late 80s and is totally dated. It’s also a running joke about how the builders cheaped out on literally everything.

This half bathroom renovation is the most recent project and it is the first room to be totally done!

Before we get to the reveal, here are the before pictures!

The original hallway leading to the bathroom. The doors to the left hide the tiny laundry room. Featured: ugly brown everything, gross floor with peeling up tiles that look like they got wet at one point. Plain beige walls.

The gross bathroom. Ugly two tone cabinets, gross sink, toilet with disgusting caulk around the bottom, unnecessary brown cabinets, ripped wall.

Terrible dated medicine cabinet with a mirror that was too high for me to even look in, and huge light fixture.

We painted the walls a light gray, all of the trim and doors white, changed out the doorknobs and pulls on the laundry room. We also replaced the flooring with some nice vinyl tiles.

Painted the walls of the bathroom a very light purple, painted all the trim in the bathroom white as well, replaced the toilet. We had professionals replace the floor and toilet as we weren’t sure what we would find.

Sorry for the lighting, I tried to add some natural lighting as well but it still came out dark. We replaced the vanity, mirror and light, as well as the toilet paper holder, towel holder and faucet. The faucet has an LED in it, we still haven’t figured out why. I love how artsy that towel holder is.

Here are the three before and after photos side by side.
