Oh heyyyyyyyyyyyyy Lulu & Georgia… I love you. If you ever want to design my house, you just lemme know.
I am just swooning over these delightful items right now.
I love taking pictures and have always had tons of pictures displayed around my room. This one was a great first start. Can’t wait to show you my new gallery wall!
Also, let me apologize now for the lighting / quality of these pictures. I took them. I did the best I could. haha. I’m also in the market for a new camera and will be selling my brand new one that I never even used to upgrade to a more HD model. Let me know if you’re interested!
I can’t believe I don’t have a shot of my curtains but they were a light purple. The room really came together around items I was given or had. I did buy the duvet cover for this apartment on ebay. Score!
Kind of a ghetto shot of my wall shelves, but you can see me and my roomies, best friend from college, and Josh and I, all proudly staring at me while I slept. Not creepy at all. haha.
This Crate & Barrel shelf matches my desk. When I bought them for this room, I was so pumped to get new furniture as I had just relocated from NYC. I went with all dark / black stained woods and half is from Ikea and the other pieces from Crate & Barrel. I’m still using them three years later and they all moved really well! I highly recommend these products!
I love that you can see me creepily taking pictures. 🙂
As my new room is smaller, and I was trying to make things less cluttered (after 3 years of collecting rando stuff), my new room has all of these same furniture pieces but with different arrangements and a more streamlined design.
I CANNOT WAIT TO SHOW YOU!
2. A lot of things that didn’t fit in my new room went to my office. Like this ikea lamp. 🙂
And then I started packing…. for weeks.
Ok so it wasn’t weeks but it took forever, and it was sad. Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE my new space. But change is always hard and saying goodbye is never easy.
(You can’t tell I have a flare for the dramatic can you? 😉 )
Just some things I’m loving on Joss & Main!
Which one is your favorite?! I want them all obviously, but I think the “M” pillow has captured my heart. I mean it has my initial AND it’s pink. Sigh. I would put it right on my newly styled bed and it would match my new room PERFECTLY.
What is more fun on a Saturday night than going on a brewery tour? Especially a local one!
It’s no secret that I am a beer girl. I really enjoy wine as well, but if I have to order something, I almost always prefer beer. I love Belgian Whites and even more I love trying new things, so when I got invited to Port City Brewery for a private beer tasting and tour, I was PUMPED!
Justin, one of the assistant brew masters, gave our group a private tour of the facilities. I was so excited to see that a brewery in the D.C. area could be so successful. They are brand new – only two years old – but are expanding like crazy. Their space used to be a lighting warehouse and they had it renovated specifically for this purpose. The owners live in Alexandria, VA and are D.C. natives which I also love. Support local beer? Duh!
It’s the month of love and I’m loving a few things in my life lately. Check out of few of my favorites below:
1. Work / Life Notebook.
I got the “mango” color which is bright yellow and matches the new curtains in my room. I tend to write everything down and I needed a small notebook that would be durable and chic to use at work.
Kate’s Paperie absolutely delivered. I ordered the large, lined notebook with recycled pages and a recycled leather cover. It’s a dream. I take it everywhere and it fits in my purse if I’m running around between meetings. And it wasn’t really too expensive. Under $20 club – yes please!
I highly recommend this product!
2. Essential Travel Mug
