We are now two months into our barter. Amanda‘s bedroom is decorated and looking fabulous, and we are just starting on her living room. On my end, I was weighed and measured just today and I am down 15.5 lbs and have lost many, many inches from the different areas of my body–most notably, 4 inches off my chest–and I could not be more proud of myself. It has also been a long time since I have had this much energy and felt this good. I attribute much of my feeling better to having cut out almost all dairy and gluten from my diet. I didn’t even know gluten was bad unless one was allergic–but all I know is that I feel SO much better without it. And on the few occasions where I gave into temptation and had some bread or other wheaty stuff (like nan, pasta, pita and tortillas) I’ve actually felt super weird afterwards. I don’t know if it was psychosomatic, but I don’t care. I’m done with gluten.
As for Amanda’s living room, here is my design concept:
It’s got kind of a relaxing 70’s natural vibe. Lot’s of textures, mellow colors and orange and turquoise accents. I found two matching 70’s textile weaving #thriftingwithjustina last weekend and I’m so glad that Amanda likes them as much as I do. The pedestal table, coffee table , pillows, bench and wishbone chairs are all from World Market (and actually there is a 25% off sale on all furniture going on until tomorrow, which made everything super affordable). The pouf and lamp are from Euro Style Lighting. I love this super 70’s floor lamp version of the lamp too. The rug is from Lulu and Georgia.
I can’t wait to see what the this next month has in store for both my fitness journey, and Amanda’s home!
*Amanda’s home makeover is being created in partnership with World Market. Thank you for your continued support of the brands that I love, and that love me back. Also, all thoughts, experiences, photos, words, and kickassness are my own.
