What to do when blog block strikes

Blog about your shit from Pinterest. Duh. This is gonna be half super cool pins and half Pinterest love fest. Pinterest has changed my world and I tell it so every freaking day. Without Pinterest how would I have designed this whole apartment before we even lived here? I would have completely bogged down my…

Because I Can't Keep Resolutions for Myself….

I’m making them for our apartment. Cuz its easier much needed. I personally think that the hard part is over.  Downsizing from 3000+ sqft to 400sqft (a generous estimation) was NOT easy. I gave away a lot of my prized pieces.  (to friends.  I refused to sell them to strangers.  I need the option to…

That is exactly how we fit all our stuff…

Before we moved from Houston to Manhattan, I was forced to downsize my 6 Christmas decoration boxes down to 3. It wasn’t easy. But now that we are here I’m glad I parted with the stuff I found in the 80% off aisle at Hobby Lobby. I was only able to display 1/4 of what…

General Mayhem

We are almost done unpacking. It goes a lot faster in a smaller space. However, it is much more challenging. Its like playing tetris with boxes. I should have finished product pics for you by tomorrow. Especially since we have internet now. **happy dance** The day after we took possession of the apt we went…

Apartment Therapy

So you may have noticed that I dropped off the planet for about a week. I was in a real crab ass mood.   I figured I’d spare you the overly dramatic word vomit and just complain to my dogs instead.  Allow me to sum it up:  House still on the lease market + Husband…
