Around My Home: Snapshots Lately

I love sharing my home decorating process and some of my new
purchases (fashion and home related) with you! It makes me so happy to hear
that you like reading the posts, too. That’s always good to know.
Speaking of new purchases, there are no words to explain how
excited I was to find these sunglasses! I searched high and low for over 6
months, only to find them in every other color imaginable: tortoise, cream, and
even blue. Obviously, when I found the black pair I immediately treated myself
to a belated Birthday present. Sunglasses are a total investment in my book. I’m
a sunglasses girl. A sunglasses and handbags kind of girl. My new sunnies are
by Celine.
A few days ago I put together my looks for upcoming Style MePretty posts. I’m so happy to be SMP’s first ever Blogger Bride Contributor! I
also love that I get to include some fashion tips/styling to help brides on
every step of their journey! You guys should definitely head over and check out
tomorrow’s Devon Says I Do. My column will be live on Wednesdays over at Style
Me Pretty! Don’t worry; I’ll also be sharing other aspects of my planning
process with you guys right here. J
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: I have the best ideas at night when I’m in bed, the shower, any time at night when it’s least convenient to have a great idea. I turned this problem into a solution with my little Idea book from J. Crew. How cute, right? It’s the perfect size to keep next to my bed and as cheesy
as it sounds, I do write my ideas down. I’m serious!

I cannot pass up cute sticky notes. It’s a huge problem. I
was pleasantly surprised to find these at J crew. I am so the customer they
target for last minute binge purchases by the cashier. *Sigh* You win, J.Crew, you win. Speaking of J. Crew, they are having an additional 40% sale
items right now! #HollaIfYouzABalla

I told you guys that I recently started a very addictive
process of re-arranging my home. I can’t stop. Here’s a sneak peek into my
bedroom at the moment. Remember those shelves? I’m constantly asked about my 2
shelves from Ikea—yes, the set up previously in my living room (check out the before) is only
2 parts, it just looks like 3 separate shelves. Because the bigger piece
standing alone had a more realistic dimension for my living room, I decided to
move the single shelf to my bedroom. My house is constantly a work in progress.
I’m planning on doing a post for each area I complete, so I can’t wait to see
what you think of the changes!
What are your thoughts on the new set up?

  2. Love the new set up and fun sticky notes!! Interior design is always a work in progress I think. I'm constantly evolving and developing new favorite design "styles" so I find that I'm never truly finished with my apartment. But that's ok because I love the process and wouldn't want it to end! I'll be sharing my budget apartment soon and I can't wait! Most things are from Goodwill for a total under $500!
