Since we moved into our new house I’ve been doing a whole lot of dreaming, and not a whole lot of doing. Blaming it on my crazy schedule is easy, but I’ve come to realize it’s kind of a blessing, because it forces me to really plan out the interior design of our house, and not rush into buying everything too soon.

Very many of you brought up (wisely, I might add) in comments to me that decorating a house should be a slow and enjoyable process–and I think I’ve seen the light.

Also adding a little light to my life is my longtime goal of decorating with chevron–not everywhere, mind you–I plan on adding a black and white runner in my kitchen between the counters, and possibly a muted chevron rug in the living room. I absolutely adore the print, and while I cannot add it to every room of my house, I certainly don’t see the harm in investing in a few amazing fashionable pieces, like this sequined version!

Design In Mind

I‘m not going to lie to you: blogging has been extremely difficult to fit in these past few months. As most of you already know, I already had a lot of things on my proverbial plate what with medical school & blogging, but when you add a wedding that is (yay!) only one month away, and the fact that we may have just stumbled upon our dream house (which, if you remember, we swore off looking for just last week)…well, it gets a bit messy.Please Click To View The Full Post →

Closet Overhaul, Mani, & Makeup

I had always known that before the New Year, I would do a major closet overhaul. Becoming a fashion blogger has its perks, but finding room for the myriad apparel, shoes, & accessories I collect for my teeny tiny closet isn’t one of them. I also knew what would be involved (major clothing organization, donation of items to charity, and reorganization). I just didn’t know when I would bite the bullet.Please Click To View The Full Post →

7 Pretty Solutions for Jewelry Storage

Having been three weeks at our new place, you’d think we’d have kissed the boxes bye-bye ages ago, right? Wrong. we unpacked our last box last Saturday. Unbelievable! It’s hard when you have literally no time to spend a day here or there in three weeks’ time to finalize the unpacking process. But life has just kept us both so busy, and being out of town last weekend postponed our task even further.

One thing I’ve struggled with for, well, years really–is proper jewelry storage. Most of the time my jewelry is laying in ZipLoc bags in plain view on my dresser, along with my makeup arsenal. Not anymore. [houston] won’t stand for it! So even though I’ve found proper storage options for my makeup, my jewelry has truly never had a home. So I did a little research on cute jewelry storage options for displaying my jewelry proudly. I have alot of it, and since I don’t have $350 to drop on a jewelry armoire (could that BE any more glamorous??), I found some pretty reasonable options on the interwebs.

[houston] nixed the idea of having mismatched vintage trinket saucers set out on the dresser to hold my rings, bangles, earrings, etc so it looks like I’ll have to display my jewelry more like art. I want to find a pretty gold vintage frame and screen it–like they did here–for my earrings. And the white pieces from my above picks would look so great clustered together on my dresser!
