I’ve been in Chicago for six weeks now and I just spent my first weekend in the city since moving here – with weddings, graduations and weekends away with friends, it was nice to finally wake up in my bed with nowhere to be. We spent the weekend making the apartment feel like home and filling it with memories, visiting the local flea, and seeing friends. I’ve started a “to eat” list and it grows daily. This city loves to eat, making me feel right at home.

All I Want for Christmas…

Is this bad boy.

I can definitely see it being an awesome DIY as well.

One Kings Lane

The twig table (shown above) has been on my “want” list for years and at $150, it’s a steal. Due to current lack of necessity, I resisted from hitting “add to cart,” but it wasn’t easy. Thank goodness for flash sale websites like One Kings Lane, making once out-of-reach pieces, more in-reach. You have to be quick and you must be confident, but when you score a steal that’s meant to be, there’s no better feeling. Shop the site here.


My new piece of Wishbone artwork. This photo is from the Etsy sellers website and I love how it really glams up the simple print.

I’ve always been an art lover and have recently started a very small collection. I am making sure that each piece represents me and even if it may seem ridiculous to some, if it makes me laugh, it’s worth it (you’ll see what I mean soon).

Finishing Touches

Sometimes it’s the last pieces you add to a room that really bring it to life.
