Kids are the Future
A few weeks ago I went to see my niece, Lily. It was a beautiful day so I decided to take a few shots of her playing outside. Enjoy these amateur, candid shots with my Sony Alpha 6000.
POTD vs Luck
Isn’t it funny how taking photos can bring the unknown in us? Today, like every Tuesday, I set up shop at a nearby apartment complex which offers a communal space with free WiFi, an onsite coffee shop, and, most importantly, a comfy couch. Turns out, one of my friends just moved into this apartment building last month and he noticed me working on my laptop this morning. We chatted for a few minutes and he asked if I’d like a tour of the private premises. The building offers two gyms, a pool, rooftop, a backyard with a fire pit and Miami-like lounge chairs with umbrellas. After the tour I decided…
Home Office Space
Working from home can be challenging! How do you stay focused? How do you keep motivated? How do you stay away from the fridge/TV? Creating a designated space for our work that is clean, inspiring and reflects your style is one of the first steps to successfully completing your daily assignments. Here’s my own little space. I kept it white and simple with a small off-white writing desk, a swivel chair and an eraseable calendar to keep my schedule organized. Desk: Joss & Main, Chair: Wayfair, Rug: H&M, Faux fur accent rug: IKEA
Believe it or not, I found this cute vanity in an alley, waiting for its end of time. I think it matches my mirror perfectly so I decided to use it as makeup vanity. It’s a little scuffed up, but I think it has character. One day I will sand it down and re-stain it. Isn’t it beautiful? Have you ever found something on the side of the road, that makes you really, really happy to look at?
Currently spending hours online searching for the best deal on.. The Butterfly Chair. Yup, I’m obsessed. All I need it to be is non-folding (the folding ones loose its sex appeal) and brown. I don’t even care much for it to be real leather, it can be faux. OK, nice talking to you, I’m back to chair hunting!
Brown in Spring
Recently I got myself an impulse buy, a pair of the best fitting jeans on the planet from Frankie B. But they’re brown… Like camel brown! Or, Khaki brown! And it’s spring! To avoid looking like I’m ready for autumn in my new jeans I went on a hunt for shoes to match this, often misunderstood and under appreciated, color- camel. At first I thought: turquoise, but after 3 hours of looking at shoes I gave up on what seemed to be a simple task. And then, I found these: How perfect are these wedges!? A mix of cute pattern, black, white AND brown! The inter-web state this confusing rule…
Now lusting: Faux Fur Otto
I know in 5 years I’ll look at it and say it was so cheesy, like that one time I bought a faux fur purse, and pink faux fur winter “moon boots” but there’s something so appealing about a fluffy soft cushion for you feet! Clean feet, of course. So I’m not a DIY girl, I’m more of a BUY girl (yes, I took it from some movie I watched a while ago) but I’m kind of convinced I can do this on my own. Some legs, some fur, some foam, some glue, right? We’ll see. For now I’m still saving up for that couch 😉
I bought this awesome leather jacket from Guess about 8-9 years ago, wore the spirit out of it and was very sad to realize it’s time to let it go (in the closet, not the trash, you silly duck!) So I’ve been looking around for a new one lately and everything was bleh or meh, nothing worth writing home. I went to check out an apartment in Lincoln Park today (which was so so so adorable, but so so so tiny for my family of 2 plus 4 furballs.. ugh.) Afterwords, I grabbed some Happy Hour beer and Tapas at Cafe Baba reeba! and as I was walking back to…
Having four adorable minions comes with perks and well, sacrifices. My little Choco a.k.a. Chocolate Bear LOVES playing living room fetch, running, jumping, hopping (is hopping and jumpig the same thing? hmm) all over the place. This has taken a toll on the good ole Mr Couch. (*note to self – take a photo in the a.m. and add below) This means I need (want) a new couch. since it took about 3 months for the current leather IKEA couch to fall apart, I’m assuming I should purchase something in fabric – worst comes I change out the cushion. So, looking for a new apartment and a new couch at…
The Slouchy Beanie
Like many girls, I don’t look very good in hats. Maybe it’s my big ears, maybe I’m just being picky… So I decided to give the “Slouchy Beanine” a try.. until I saw the prices! around $30-$50 FOR A HAT? Ugh. So I’m adding this very warm and cozy looking beanie to my secret wish list and until then, I’ll fight the Polar Vortex in Chiberia in my ugly hat. Meh 🙁
