Wednesday Blinds & Organization & Coffee Of Course

Image
Happy hump day to all! It's a beautiful but chilly day here in the N.Y.C area. I have accomplished so much in this past week I've had off. The last Sunday my father in law came over. It is always a hoot when he is here. He is just too funny. What basically happens is me and my father in law laugh and bond. Put things up as Anthony (my husband) sits and stays on the computer. I know. He is more of a Mr.Fix it as far as gadgets and computers go. Building things. Not so much. Which is strange in my opinion, being that his father is extremely handy. None the less. This very scenario took place again when we attempted to put up some new blinds in the kitchen. Which mind you we have needed for years now. What is it about blinds that are so annoying? Is it the size? The color? Drilling holes? All of those things took place. The picture you see is the finished the product which I completely adore. But it took three trips to the local Home Depot in order to get this working. We also h…

New bedroom lamps

My new babies that I scored at Marshalls. I love the details. They look Hollywood glamour to me which is my favorite. The shade color goes great against the headboard and new mirror I also purchased.

French Manicures & Drinks

Happy Saturday my lovelies. Its a rainy day here in N.Y.C. I went to Soho last night and had a great time with my friend Jenny. We had drinks and dinner and I got my nails done. Here is the finished product. Hope you like :)What are tour plans for the weekend? Do you stay in if its raining and cozy up on the couch or is it more of a reason to head out?
Many things to post today.

Transitioning From Home & Gold

Image
It's a beautiful Wednesday here. I returned a few things at the Old Navy across the street from my apartment. Then promptly headed to my local Marshalls. You really have to go in there every week to find cute tops and household items. I scored today. I purchased a Navy nautical themed tank top, philosophy baby grace body butter, gold frame for my gallery wall, a honey pot, new oven gloves, as well as an eye mask that can be heated when I get my migraines or cooled in the summer.

Sometimes working from home can be worst I think. I am one of those people who do not sit still. Even when I'm sick(like now). So I constantly start 50 projects at once. Then before I know it, the whole day is gone. It's 5:00 and time to start dinner. I wonder how successful work at home people actually do it. Maybe setting a certain time aside to just do it? Who knows. These are all new transitions for me with my store closing shop. I'm grateful to be able to work from home now. But I am ver…

A New Chapter In Life

Image
Morning all. I can't believe it is March already. My birth month. I will be 29 on the 26th. Time sure does fly when life is throwing all it can at you lol. I will be having a little more time off now that the company I was working for is closing. It was bittersweet. I loved working and being in the city. But some times, I can't lie I did miss the time at home. Or just time in general! I have so many projects around the apartment I want to tackle. Which I will be documenting on here every step of the way. My closet office first. Maybe paint the kitchen. I have to fix up the whole balcony to get it ready for summer. Finish my gallery wall in the hallway. Etc. Etc. I will continue to look for something else as well. But in the meantime I am trying to take at least this month to just digest it all. This is the perfect time for renewal and new beginnings. Spring always gives us hope. I have been doing great as far as eating healthy.(except for yesterday lol but Sundays don't c…
