I keep scrawling little notes on my to do list to post about a few things I’m loving lately, some of our house updates, and other little tidbits on my mind, so it’s an ‘everything but the kitchen sink’ kind of blog post today.
First, it’s my bloggaversary this week! Seven years of blogging under my belt and I think it’s cause for celebration. I have a recipe on my mind for this weekend that would pair perfectly with some fun birthday candles.
Our house is currently a disaster after getting new hardwood floors this week and I can’t wait to put it back together and start adding in some finishing details, like rugs and lighting. I’m on the hunt for both and am eager for recommendations, it’s so hard to find the perfect pieces! I made one easy decision though, picking up this adorable cloth-wire extension cord (on sale!).
I have been in a style rut and have been craving some fresh looks to get me through the end of winter, so I signed up for two fun services: Rocksbox and StitchFix. Rocksbox is sort of like Netflix for jewelry, you write a wish list, and they send you 3 pieces to borrow, when you’re done you send them back and they send you 3 new pieces. It’s so fun because I always get bored of my costume jewelry — this is a perfect solution (plus they have awesome designers like Loren Hope and Kendra Scott). StitchFix has been so fun too, you get paired with a stylist that sends you pieces to try on at home and you keep what you like and send back what you don’t — I was amazed at how accurately the stylist got my style right away and loved the pieces she sent — I really can’t wait for the next one to arrive.
In other style news, I have bought several of these cozy swing t-shirts from Boden and have been living in them; my sister alerted me today that Old Navy is chock-full of darling new arrivals for spring (this tank top will be on my doorstep next week); and after about three years I’ve finally sprung for some new specs — Warby Parker Barnetts, can’t wait to get them in the mail!
And finally, Valentine’s Day is upon us. I missed the boat on some DIY ideas I had intended to post, so check out my instagram this weekend for some last-minute ideas (I’m baking cookies!) and do yourself a favor and stock up on these charming little heart cocktail stirrers!
