    Vintage Inspired Christmas Decor

    I haven’t been on here the last two days because I’ve been busy and by busy, I’ve been sleeping. Actually, I had to do a big grocery shop on Thursday for Thanksgiving and it takes me an unacceptable amount of time to complete this task then get home and put it all away. I’m preparing a huge appetizer spread for any of my local friends who want to come over since I didn’t make plans to go home this year and I work all next weekend anyway. I’m making soft pretzels, toasted tortellini, baked cheese, caprese skewers, artichoke dip, spinach and cheese taquitos – just a bunch of junk food…

    A Little Life Update

    Is my life very interesting? Absolutely not but it’s good for a chuckle every once in awhile and I wanted to post today even if it is a bit random 🙂 First off, the Car Shopping Chronicles continue and I have looked at way too many cars in the last few weeks with nothing really feeling like the perfect new vehicle. I had taken a break from car shopping but about a month ago, I was at the grocery store and the power locks on my car don’t work anymore so I leave it open and empty of anything of value. I came out of the grocery store and someone…

    Halloween Decor Haul!

    I had today off for the sole purpose of finishing my shopping for Halloween decor. I wanted to be out early and home early because I can’t be bothered with people, so I am driving around at 6 AM and realized that the only stores open that early are grocery stores, Walmart and pharmacies. I haven’t been going into Walmart, I blogged about that a while ago because I just don’t love supporting them. I sucked it up and found some really cute things, I hope that my $34 goes to a good cause. Next stop was Target which didn’t have their Halloween stuff out even though their website said…

    Fall Decor Mood Board

    I was just perusing Pinterst when I came upon this article from Elle entitled; Outdated Home Trends We Hope May Never Come Back. And I’m like; That’s my entire apartment you whore. Someone’s personal style can be trendy without being driven by temporary trends – it’s called style, read a Vogue. Anyway, I have a four-day weekend for the simple reason that I just don’t want to be at work having to be nice to people. I feel that’s a good enough reason. My only agenda is to scope out every homeware store in a 40 mile radius and get some fall decor. By fall, I mean Halloween because I already…

    Fall Fragrance Haul

    I didn’t post on Friday because I had strep throat and by the time I woke up from my coma, it was already Saturday. I hate strep but Rod Stewart was in Minneapolis and had to cancel his concert because I heard on the radio that he had strep and I’m not saying there’s a connection but I felt pretty rock ‘n roll and there’s definitely a connection 😛 So, after my 72 hour quarantine I had to go to Bath & Body Works because I had a coupon and they have all of their fall scents out! I have wanted to try these forever but figured it would be…

    Bedroom Decor Refresh

    The Boho Chic makeover is complete, or at least to the point that I am actually loving it without having gone overboard. I had plans for more wall art but it’s funny how small a room can feel once you get it filled with new things and I am holding off for now. Here’s a peek at my little sanctuary, enjoy <3 I went with a low-profile, metal frame that I found on Amazon and I am loving it. I didn’t want something that took up a lot of wall space but I wasn’t loving the mattress being directly on the floor, this definitely did the trick. The moon phase…

    Decor Inspo – Bohemian Bedroom

    Ladies and gentlemen, if I can recommend one thing that one should absolutely not do after a broken relationship, it is revisit your wedding board on Pinterest. I don’t know what in the name of Samhain possessed me but there I was, bawling like a baby over my imaginary, beautiful wedding (really, it was going to be stunning). Honestly. The reason that I was on Pinterest is because I thought I was going to give my room a Bohemian, minimalist makeover with lots of pillows, low-profile bed, plush blankets, lots of beige – something got lost in translation. I don’t know if I just don’t like how low the bed…

    Living Room Decor Refresh ft. IKEA

    Well, I survived my trip to IKEA this weekend and most everything that I wanted was in stock aside from two shelves that I had to order. I decided that I wanted the apartment to look totally different so I went with an Andy Warhol Hallucination motif which is working for me. Some of the stuff I already owned and was using in the bedroom but I am redoing that room as well and decided that some of the items would work with my motif. Here’s a little peek at what I purchased: The couch is not new and in fact, this couch has go to go. The new additions…

    Kitchen Tour

    So, you guys want to see my kitchen? Cool, because I literally have nothing else to talk about tonight and I just cleaned the shit out of it. Can I really  call it a tour if it’s only 50 square feet of space? I love my kitchen, it’s not to everyone’s taste – very flea market chic, heavy on the kitsch but I like it. I don’t like how modern it is, my dream is to a) own a well-maintained home that was built in 50’s or b) build a customized replica. The colours and shapes from that era appeal to me for some reason, I have been feeling the…

    Kitchen Haul Round Two

    Minnesota is stuck in a perpetual winter, I am into it – I just realized how often one discusses the weather in the mid-west. I don’t recall ever having cared about what the weather was doing in my youth but maybe that’s just kids. Now, you could literally be talking about anything else and somehow you will land on the 10 day forecast which we all know is criminally inaccurate but we’re still going to talk about it. Being in your 30’s is lame. Apparently, Amazon is delivering my packages in 2’s and again – I could just wait until everything arrives but where is the fun in that? I…
