    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…

    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…

    Fun Kitchen Finds

    We are due for snow this evening and it’s slated to be the coldest Easter in the last 10 years but my kitchen is feeling decidedly Spring-like. Yes, I did make a trek to Wal-Mart this morning and yes, I feel like a jerk so judge away.  It’s a nightmare trying to find anything in stores that big but I did manage to find a few Pioneer Woman finds and they are perfect. The store in my area didn’t have a ton of stuff but what they did have was of good quality, I did place an Amazon order as well and am excited for that to get here. In the…

    Fleeting Thoughts

    And a new desk mat! For all those who do not get excited about office supplies, my apologies – I suppose that I could have waited patiently for all of my order to arrive and then do an office haul instead of posting randomly c’est la vie. I also purchased an unnecessary amount of Lysol products but I’ll spare you. Anyway, I purchased a floral desk mat because it will be like I always have flowers in my cube – I do have some plants but they aren’t flowers. It is bigger than I thought it would be but I think it’s going to work. I like the folk art…

    Poppin’ Desk Accessories

    My new desk is slowly coming together, I never really thought that I would be one of those people who spends this much time putting their work space together. At my first cubicle job, I could literally fit all of my belongings into a small box and it would be like I was never there. Not for any reason, I worked there for over 6 years but at my new job it just dawned on me how much time I spend at work. I spend a lot of time decorating the apartment that I get to enjoy much less so why not make my work space a place that I…

    Easter Decor Inspo!

    It doesn’t feel very spring-like here with 5-7 inches of snow on the way but I was poking around in Bath and Body Works this weekend and looking at their spring candles. I didn’t purchase any because I am just not ready. I just realized that prior to moving to MN, I never talked about the weather – maybe I did but certainly not as obsessively as I do now that I live here. I can’t lie, I don’t like Easter, I don’t even like spring and I think it’s because of the pastels and allergies. Mostly allergies…or is it the pastels? I think this is the first year that…

    Desk Decor Inspo

    I am about done with Instagram, I unfollowed tons of celebrity accounts and gurus when the algorithm changed since I was rarely seeing new posts from people that I actually know and some of the posts showing up in my feed from these big accounts were 3-5 days old. This worked for a bit and I was seeing content that I was truly interested in but now my feed is cluttered with recommended accounts – just stop, what about the accounts that I actually follow!? The whole thing feels very dystopian. We had new desks installed at work and clearly that means that I need new desk decor, I mean, probably not…
