A Day in the Life

I wanted to give a peek into a day in my life over here. Hope you guys are strapped in cause this is going to be EXCITING. You’re going to be like “How does she do it?? How does she fit all that in to one measly day?!?” Obviously kidding. Sometimes I see that “You have as many hours in the day as Beyonce” quote, and I get really annoyed because while that may be true, Beyonce also has a herd of staff doing her bidding. Anywayyy. This was my Monday: 6:44- Get woken up by Finn whining to go…

To start, I headed to Homegoods to find a…

DIY Yarn Letters

This was a fun project that I worked on a while back to spruce up our bar area. I wanted a wall hanging that wasn’t another frame, and I wanted to introduce a new color to the dining room/bar area.

It was also one of those totally therapeutic projects- it is very repetitive and put me in the “zone,” which is one of my favorite places.

I come in peace!

Hi interwebz! I’m excited to get this guy off the ground. You can read a bit about the blog and myself on my About page, but if you are too tired or lazy to click on the link, here’s a brief synopsis. I am an HGTV addict and a freshly made bed makes me happier than almost anything. I like interior design so much that I even majored in it for a year at school, but ultimately transferred to a public relations. This is my space to talk about my apartment (I have a trend of moving about once a…
