Ottomans from oh joy! for target. <3

I’ve always loved this line- the party supplies are always adorable + chic.

I’ve picked up a few little things here and there but the latest line is SO me. I love love love hearts (my favorite ring and earrings have hearts on them.) The new line is absolutely adorable. One of my best friends is having a baby girl in a couple months and I can’t wait to spoil her with polka hearts and lots of love.

Look. At. These. Ottomans. ❤ ❤ ❤



So adorable.

Etsy Map Chalkboard

I could spend hours upon hours perusing etsy and purchasing all kinds of things I want but don’t need. I’ve been eyeing this chalkboard from dirstastudio for YEARS and finally took the plunge when I saw it comes in green. Just like elementary school. My obsession with maps and globes is a bit excessive, but how else am I going to keep track of past, current and future travels?


Bye, TV.

I felt like my TV was taking up an unnecessary amount of space and spotlight in my already tiny living room. I am completely against having one in my bedroom – so it had to go.

This is part of how I’ve been trying the whole 40 Bags in 40 Days thing and it’s going REALLY well. I sold my TV (bye, au revoir, adios!) – which is shocking to many people. But if you know me – you know I just don’t really watch television. I’d rather read, listen to music or hang out with friends face-to-face. Yes, there are few TV shows I actually watch religiously (GIRLS, Mad Men) and many series that I watch over and over and over (The Original Law & Order, Veronica Mars, Gilmore Girls, Gossip Girl). Lots of “girls.” However, most of my TV watching is in bed while trying to fall asleep. I think I’m too OCD to really sit and watch tv and I am FAMOUSLY known among friends for falling asleep during movies.

I also used it as a “fireplace” during Friendsgiving last year – but candles will do next time.

Would you ever get rid of your television?


Wall Hangings and Art

While I have been purging my apartment (anyone need dining chairs or a tv?!) I’ve been looking at a lot of macrame wall hangings and absolutely adore them. I always think “I can do that!” But am I really?

But on another note I stumbled upon this gorgeous piece at a garage sale for $20. The lady bought it in Ecuador.

Couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.


I also just purchased a gorgeous photo of Iceland from 20×200 . How stunning is it?! My walls are finally coming together!
