Checking in


Hi there! You might notice this blog has gotten a bit of a facelift - and by that I mean it's gotten a lot simpler. I still have some design changes to make (which is what you get when you start tinkering at 9 pm on a Monday), but it feels like I can breathe here again. I loved the old design, but I wasn't putting out enough content to keep it up.

For now, a personal update post. And also - happy Valentine's Day! My Valentine and I (namely) will snuggle up on the couch tonight watching whatever rom com catches my eye on Netflix and I'll nom on conversation hearts and sip my favorite TJ's red blend.

Lately, I've been...

eating: All the dark chocolate.

creating: Better habits. I was late to the party, but Marie Kondo has taken over my brain. I've found myself walking around the apartment asking "but does this bring me joy???"

reading: Too much news, not enough books and novels. After finishing The Crown on Netflix I'm kind of interested in a historical biography - maybe Elizabeth? Or Marie Antoinette?

shopping: Less - which is much needed after the holidays. Now spending my money on tickets for excursions abroad :)

adding: FINALLY a new tv stand - I've desperately searched for one since I moved in November. Shopping hiatus is going well, except for this. It was on sale!

making plans for: London. Paris. Germany!

drooling over: Fern Studio, which I recently discovered is super close to my apartment! Wishing they would open a retail space, because I'd straight up move in.

listening to: Ashley's fall 2016 playlist. My friends make fun of me because I find out about cool music a few months late, so this is extra appropriate.

laughing at: How much I relate to this (and pretty much everything else on that account)!

loving on: My bffs! It's Valentine's Day, after all.

jealous of: This natural light. My apartment's great, but no floor to ceiling windows. #wompwomp

finding: Financial responsibility is HARD. And cooking is HARD. Someone help me adult.
