    Blogtober – Day X: Halloween Office Decor

    Can I rant? OK, good. It’s this weather, I swear, it’s just fucked my mood. I was watching YouTube, like ya’ do and I don’t know why I read the comments but I do and there was this comment that said wasn’t this YouTuber lucky that their complaint of the day was the oversized PR packaging when there are starving kids in Africa who don’t have clean drinking water. Are there starving kids in Africa? Yes, there are but what is this person sitting in front of their computer being a keyboard jockey doing about it? Nothing! Also, you don’t actually have to leave the US to find kids who…

    Best of September, Halloween Decor & 31 Nights of Horror!

    You guys, flu season just started, actually I don’t even know if it that’s true but I’ve already contracted strep and now I have the flu within the scope of a month. I’m so pissed, I tend to make it through flu season unscathed, this better not be a prelude for the rest of the year. I have missed two days of blogging due to feeling like death so am just throwing a bunch of stuff into this post that I had planned for the last couple of days of September. I only have a few items that I would consider Best Of’s for this month and very few empties…

    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…

    Monday Must Have – KKW Beauty

    Have you ever just been walking along, mostly minding your own business, thinking about the delicious things you are planning to eat for dinner when you full-on eat shit? Legit me leaving the craft store today. No ice, it had been raining so maybe my sandal was slick but still – talk about lame, falling down for no reason. Then, the person who you are with says, I think you should get screened for MS. Yes, THANK YOU for being so helpful. In their defense, they were with me the last time I fell down but it was on ice so I had good reason. I found some new additions to my…

    The Case of the Missing Screws – A Rant

    I realized something last night, I have a difficult time watching or listening to something for pure entertainment without imposing real-life judgement and opinions on it. Is this what the rest of my life will be like?! It’s torture! I was watching Gilmore Girls last night, yet again, and I got so annoyed because Rory is the most obnoxious, entitled, spoiled brat literally ever. The mother/daughter relationship is a toxic friendship at best and I just can’t watch it. What mother would behave like the pouting, simpering immature woman that Lorelai is? Ugh. I tell  you, does anyone else experience this? Why can’t we just mindlessly take in entertainment simply…

    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…

    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…

    Bedroom Update

    I think that the bedroom is done, or at least as far as what I wanted to with it. The BF still has a corner where he has a bunch of random shit but it seems organized. I’m still side-eying it. I didn’t take any ‘Before’ pictures because I didn’t think that I would be talking about this on my blog but here are some ‘After’ pictures and I can share the major changes. First, we used to have two side tables and now he just has the one. I completely emptied mine and it’s up for sale currently, if it doesn’t get picked up this month then I will…

    Design Inspo – Mid Century Modern

    Remember when your grade school teachers would tell you that; There was no such thing as a stupid question? They were lying. Or perhaps they were making an effort to encourage curiosity and inquisitiveness but beyond the age of 13, there are plenty of stupid questions that people should keep to themselves. And yet, I feel that as we age – instead of getting wiser, we become even more stupid. My favourite was working retail and explaining the return policy to a customer only to then be asked, So – I can’t return this? No, stupid – you can’t. I feel like every question that I have been asked today…

    A Journey to Minimalism

    *collective eye roll, unfollow* I see you 😛 I will be the first to say that the trendy, minimalist community that has taken Youtube and Instagram by storm does seem like a bunch of well-off, pretentious assholes. I am just a regular person who decided that I had a bunch of shit around that I don’t need and wanted to consume less than average in my lifetime. It all started when the BF and I started house hunting and I felt a lot of stress and anxiety thinking about boxing all of our belongings, it is daunting and has proved to take some of the excitement out of first time…
