MIA – Grad School Take Over

Hello all! My apologies for being MIA – I have started grad school this fall… and reading has taken over my life. I’ll be taking a break from posting! But I thought I would share this great link my friend sent me about Anthropologie… (Anthro, I love you and your magical smelling candles that I can’t afford and your artful staging – but this is very funny).

“Here’s this gross fantasy they’ve created of an art student who can afford to spend thousands of dollars on a paint-splattered flea market find. It’s like all their customers are aspiring to be Charlotte in Tiny Furniture (a loft-dwelling trust fund dilettante).”

Soooo true, I know I would love to live in magical loft with velvet furniture covered with mixed upholestery and tiny dogs…

Pineapples are the New Bird

Put a bird pineapple on it – I’m calling it guys – pineapples are now trending. As I mentioned before – I caught the ‘Pineapples-are-so-cute-Everything-I-buy-should-be-pinapple-related’ disease in this post. Check out these pineapple pins decor that is confirming the trend.

I really love those Brass Pineapples – but looking at them on Etsy, they are a little pricy, ranging from $90 – 189! But I found this cute trivet for $13

DIY’s that are Actually Cool

DIY – the idea always seems awesome and then I stock pile a million pins on Pinterest, but then never make time to create my glorious pins.  And it always seems DIY pins are holiday oriented. WELL GUESS WHAT? Here are some DIY pins that have nothing to do with anything except that they are actually cool (and home design-ish) and I am determined to MAKE one of these… which one should I do?

Target Strikes again…

Target has done it again. It has added more items to its stock that will make me forget I went into the store for conditioner and end up spending $100 on things that I need
