I got two new prints for my apartment, one for my birthday last month, and the other I spotted online and had to have. I’ve been moving them around and trying to decide where they should live, but this weekend decided my bathroom needed a little artwork love. I was a little more chipper getting read for work on Monday morning looking at them (especially since I was running late and actually had to embrace my messy hair).

Guess what arrived in the mail this weekend? Supplies for my Valentine’s day party! I’m most excited about the heart straws that I ordered. Stick around this week for lots of Valentine’s day entertaining talk, I’ve been crafting for days.

Today is the last and final installment of my guest posts over on Project Gadabout. I’m sharing my shopping treasure map with all of my favorite places to blow my paycheck. If you want to see where you can get all of the goodies below, click over and check it out!

I’m posting again over on Project Gadabout today; you can take a sneak peek into what I lug around in my giant purse everyday! (Hint: a lot of stuff). Click here to read more.

I’m so happy with my bedroom makeover, it’s quickly become my favorite room in the apartment. Of course I’m never finished with a room and still have little bits and pieces I want to change. At the top of my list is upgrading my sheets; they’ve seen better days and look extra tired next to my new duvet cover. Lucky for me, CSN Stores, purveyors of modern duvet covers and more has offered me a gift card to do just that!

But first I need your help. Do I buy the matching striped sheets? Or mix it up and go with a third pattern? Something simple like tiny dots? Or more bold and geometric? I can’t decide, what do you think?

I had a  very productive evening last night and after finishing writing thank you notes I managed to start working on some invites to a little Valentine’s day soiree I’m throwing. I thought I’d give you a little sneak peek at the sketches I was working on… I’ll show you the finished product when they’re done!

 

Two exciting mentions that I had to share…the lovely Alaina of Live Creating Yourself, who created my blog header and background, is posting over on her blog today about the inspiration for the design. Head over and check out the rest of the inspiration boards.

And I was quite excited to see that my little bedroom makeover was featured on Dwell Studio’s “How You Dwell” column on their blog. I’m blushing a bit at the compliment — I’ve been a long time fan of their founder Christiane Lemieux’s designs.
