I've been coveting this throw at World Market for months and finally it went on sale yesterday at 50% off, plus I had a coupon for an additional 10% off. That means I got this for only 27 bucks!

Purchase it here.

Office Re-do Part 3

Notice something lacking in this photo?

There is a huge empty wall above my desk! To change this, I grabbed a few old paintings from college and tacked them up. They add just the right amount of color:

Office Area: Before and After

Are you ready for this?

A little old-school, but tons of storage for my books. The problem? Not a lot of surface area for working.

The boxes containing the BESTÃ… BURS desk, and other random stuff from IKEA. Oh yeah, and my work laptop.
Crap from my desk, strewn across the floor.

Close ups of the desk surface
Finished product - with my brand new Ethan chair from World Market.
Ta Da!

Where I work

Hi! I spend the majority of my week in a tiny 4x6 foot space. Since I practically live there, I added a few home-y touches. Take a look at my cubicle:

IKEA Trip this Saturday

I am going to IKEA this Saturday after a Bridal Shower, since it's only 30 minutes from the party. I am planning on purchasing a new desk. It's about time! I was going to go for the Leksvik desk, as posted here, but I need more storage in my tiny bedroom than it could offer. Enter, the Micke desk:

What a beauty! Check back for before and after photos.

Bathroom Update

Yesterday I came across this sweet item from the new Target Threshold brand. It inspired me to update my bathroom.

New Picture

Hi! I just made a new addition to my house. I found this lovely news article about the Hitchcock classic Rear Window at a local Antique Mall in Ruckersville, VA. I framed it and placed it at the top of my stairs. Here is the result:

Awesome, no?

Fear: Heels with Jeans

I have no idea why it is terrifying for me to actually wear heels with jeans since it is completely classy, but I am making a goal to try this out for work over the next few weeks. Wish me luck!
