Hi guys, how are you all doing? It’s Saturday! Wuhuu (dancing emoji).

I’m somewhat out on the other side from a week of staying in bed sick. I literally hate being sick. I get the most crazy FOMO, I always feel like I have too much to do at work, and I feel guilt for not being at work. I know you should always put health first, but I’m definitely bad at actually taking action on the signs my body is giving me. I wonder if that’s a millennial thing? Or just a human thing?

Anyhow, after being in bed for a hundred years (real time: 6 days) I’m starting to feel like myself again. I’m actually awake, and I somewhat have an appetite again. So Edward and I started brainstorming a bit about our living room and how we want to do the finishing touches in there (I mean, it does get a little boring being in bed for so long). To be honest I’m mostly the one who wants to accessorize our living room space a bit more, but I know Edward would love a cool rug for under the sofa area.  I really want Edward to hang up some book shelfs (that has been starring at us from the floor since Christmas), and I would looooove to buy a big cactus to put next to our TV. So with all this brainstorming, I thought I would start doing some interior inspo blogposts. I always love seeing other blogger’s homes, reading interior magazines, and a new favorite of mine is the Instagram profile Homepolish. Their posts and insta-stories are such eye-candy. They make me drool every. single. day.

So on my list right now is:

A rug.
A huge cactus.
New covers for the sofa pillows + a new blanket.
A floor lamp.
Side table for sofa.
A bigger glass top for our dining table.
Art.
New coffee table.

Have any of you guys recently moved? Any interior wishes? Let me know in the comments below. I would love some inspo.

Ps. If anyone knows where the lamp on my collage is from please shout out in the comments. I just randomly found it on Pinterest, but don’t know where it’s from.

Getting ready for christmas

img_0824It’s happening! I officially started decorating the house for Christmas. I wasn’t quite sure if it was okay to decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving, and since we’re having guests over at our house this year I had a little sit down with Edward’s mom to figure out this big question of mine. And I got my answer. The one I was hoping! So today I hung up the Christmas wreath on our front door. That’ll bring our neighbors joy too, I put up all the Christmas candles I’ve been collecting (I bought the nicest Nest candle at a sample sale last week, and I must admit I also went a little crazy in Target’s Christmas section.. Wups!), and then I set up the mini Christmas tree in the hallway. I also brought our the Christmas box (which was buried deep down in the closet), but it mostly has ornaments for the tree, so I might have to go shopping a little bit (too bad!! hehe). I definitely wouldn’t mind adding the below to my collection:

CHRISTMAS IS MOVING IN

graces-teaware2

I?ve spent all weekend getting ready for December decorating the house, treating myself a festive manicure, and watching non-stop Christmas movies on Lifetime. Sunday I went shopping for a few festive bits to complete the decorations, and fell in love with this Christmas-y teaware from Grace’s Teaware. I seriously debated whether or not to buy them (after all I’ll probably only use them in December), but my “hygge”-gene won in this case, and therefore you can find me drinking my morning coffee/evening tea from these cuties.

Anybody want to come over for coffee/tea/hot cocoa/you name it?
