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.
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:


1)  Tablecloth 2) Ruffle-trimmed apron 3) Metal measuring set 4) Holiday mugs 5) Christmas heart 6) Light house 7) Christmas tree top star 8) cushion cover 9) Oven mitt





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?
