This weekend I decided it was time for me to actually figure out a neat plan for my pantry. When I first moved in I bought a couple baskets and jars. But, everything still just ended up looking messy. When things are messy it gets so hard to find things that you need and things get forgotten.
Brace yourself! This is the before picture and I don’t even know how it got like this!
I definitely needed to get more baskets, smaller jars and a shelf so I would be able to see everything I have without moving everything around.
I went to homegoods and Marshall’s to get most of the stuff I needed. It’s way cheaper then The Container Store and I think they have really cute stuff!
This is what I came up with!

As you can see, I dedicated the top shelf to my little furry child. I found these super cute white and black cat baskets that I used to store her extra food and treats. In the middle, I found this Rae Dunn jar that just says meow and that holds her everyday dry food! So cute!
The next shelf I did all my jars, they still don’t all match yet but we’re working on it!
I bought these from IKEA a while ago and it makes pastas and rice look a lot better in glass jars rather than boxes!
I found a white metal shelf that’s originally for plates but it works so well to be able to see all the jars at once.
Next I decided to put all my canned goods. I bought this 3 level shelf to put everything in order and it made the biggest difference!
The last two shelves I used baskets also black and white to tie in everything. I used these to store snacks, bread and all of kitchen tools! It just makes everything a lot neater and clean-looking and I’m so proud of how it came out!
What to you think?! Let me know in the comments below!!

On December 19th, 2016 I got to celebrate my 5 year anniversary with my boyfriend, Chris!
Which is a crazy long time, because every time we tell people how long we’ve been dating they always like to remind us haha.
I guess it is weird for someone who’s 24 to be in such a committed relationship these days because that doesn’t really seem to happen anymore, but it’s definitely been working out for us.
When we started dating back in 2011 things were so different. I was definitely a different person back then. I feel like we both really did grow into adults together and shaped each other into who we are today. Which could have been really hard because people do change and you might not like what they turn into but for us it got better each year that pasted. We grew closer together and I think became better people.
I’ve learned a lot from being with someone for 5 years, it’s not always easy but it really is worth it. He’s my best friend and the person I can always come to no matter what. It’s a great feeling to know that you always have someone on your side to back you up and show you unconditional love!
(I NO GAG RIGHT?! LOL <3)
People always ask us how we do it, and how have we stayed together so long and I never really know how to answer that question fully.
If you’re with the right person that fits you and brings out the best in you, why would you even think about that question. It just works. ❤
If you follow me on Pinterest you know that one of the things I love to pin the most is home decor. To help with this unhealthy habit I’ve been making my own home decor inspiration boards online and I wanted to share the ones I made from all IKEA items to give people an idea of my style and to also help some people figure out how to decorate an apartment on the cheaper side.
My boyfriend and I and planning on moving in together soon and I wanted to make the rooms both masculine but still, have hints of girliness but nothing too crazy so he doesn’t freak out, lol.
I wanted the bedroom to be pretty simple and cozy. I really pull inspiration from wood and metals mixed together. I don’t like matchy-matchy things like full bedroom sets so Ikea is a great place to mix and match different nightstands and dressers.
This is my basic inspiration with any add on decor items.
The next room would be the living room. I went with the same kind of color scheme gray white brown and black! I just loved how everything went really well together. My favorite item from this board is the tray table with the white stripe in the middle I’m in love.
Ikea has really come a long way with their items these days they definitely are starting to stay more on top of trends.
The one thing I found out that I enjoyed about making these boards is that you can see everything together and really understand if the colors you picked out worked together and if its overall the look you were going for.
