I thought that I would start my week (I was supposed to post this yesterday) by posting some pictures from my Instagram (IG) account. I’m sure I’ve already told you all how much I absolutely love this app! I believe its available on both iPhones and Androids now so you should definitely look into it if you haven’t already done so! A lot of what’s been going on in my world on a day-to-day basis is reflected on there so here are some pictures to sum up the past week or so on IG:

How cute are these custom made post-its and letter head? I ordered these, along with some blog business cards, from Vistaprint. Although the designs are a bit limited, I was really impressed with everything they can actually do (i.e. custom made pens, post-its, t-shirts, journals, web hosting, etc.). Check it out when you get the chance…

Remember when I did a post a little while back about turning my dining room into an office (Inspirational Spaces)? Well, I went and purchased a desk and ghost chair from ikea, and set my little office space up last weekend…I really love it. The color of the desk really brightens up the room. The nail polishes and leopard print coaster on the desk also add a super girly feel to it. Not to mention that weird desk lamp. If you would like for me to do a separate post on my office space just let me know…

I went a little crazy at Nordstrom over the past couple of weeks during the Anniversary Sale, and I purchased some lip glosses (that I really didn’t need). They are gorge though! The Chanel, Nars and Bobbi Brown glosses are the new ones in the picture above…and are all different from what I would normally choose for myself (fuschia/pink). Gotta step outside your comfort zone sometimes ladies!

As for the green ensemble, I’ve been looking for a trench vest for months!! I finally stumbled upon one in the Old Navy outlet at Arundel Mills last week. I went to the mall with my sister (hey Keisha!) and I was trying my best not to buy anything, but who can resist something purchasing something that they’ve been on the hunt for?! Certainly not me…I can’t wait to rock this baby!

Last, but certainly not least, my birthday was on Sunday, August 5th.  Outside of all the amazing birthday wishes and other things I received, I had to post this amazing home cooked meal! Stuff salmon with crab meat, scallops, shrimp and aspargus! Ah-Mazing! Feel great to now be a part of the 30 and over club! Lol…

Whelp, I think I’ve rambled on long enough. I hope you all have a lovely week and I will talk to you all soon! Smooches! XOXO

Inspirational Spaces

My friend, Latoya of Something Blue DC, has gotten me addicted to Pinterest! Some of LaToya’s most amazing pins are the home decor ones…She is always talking about her dream home (which mostly consists of her dream closet/library…Lol), and after drooling over her pictures, I decided to start seeking inspiration of my own. In looking through thousands of pictures of dream homes and how various people decorate each room of their houses, I discovered that even though I don’t have my dream home yet, I could at least have my (mini) dream office…

So I have been on the prowl for desks, bookshelves (as all of my books will not fit on the one bookshelf I have right now) and other accessories that I think will help me turn my empty dining room into a little inspirational office. My ultimate goal is to have a space where I can blog, write and read without being tempted to fall asleep. As for right now, when I want to work on my thesis, I have to leave the house because my couch and my bed are way too comfy! And yes, I am that person that needs to be sitting at a desk/table in order to be productive.

Anywho…here are some inspiring office spaces that are really giving me life right now…

I’m sure you’ve noticed one thing that all of these offices have in common…yes, they are all white!! White, lucite, glass, and stainless steel furniture always looks so chic and modern to me. And since I am also revamping my living room, transitioning the color palette to black and white, I figured that a white desk may be just what I need. You should also notice that at least two of these office spaces have lucite ghost chairs. I am totally obsessed with lucite furniture right now! I’ve been eyeing the ghost chairs at Ikea for months, but I think I am going to go ahead and get it. I am also tempted to grab a faux fur rug but we shall see!

My sister and I are going to look at some furniture this weekend. Once I finalized everything and I have my place the way I want it, I’ll be sure to post pictures that, hopefully, will inspire others. Until next time…See ya!! XOXO
