it's 2015

Dress: French Connection Shoes: J.Crew Crown: Party City :) 

The fact that it's 2015 is mind boggling. As I get older the years are just flying by. Im sure we all feel like that, but Alex and I have lived in our apartment for a year and it feels as if we just moved in and now we are moving again! I'm such a believer on new everything that moving into another new place seems like a reoccurring event. Even though Im thinking that our new place is going to be a keeper for years to come. As with any new year we create our new years resolutions and mine are as follows:
I hope to become more of a productive morning person and not waste the days on sleep. I for sure want to learn Italian or French and visit Paris. I also want to join a club or do some kind of active activity like dance. AND lastly, I want to use my money towards travel than on material things. (which i find is going to be the hardest to keep)

Words to live by: Don't waste your youth on mundane activities, live life to the fullest and try new things! 

P.S I've had this sequin dress in my closet for over 5 years, and I have never worn it. There could be many reasons why I didn't, but on this new years it seemed so fitting to wear. 




When I think of a day spent in Wynwood, I think of a day wandering the streets of New York.  There's always something new to try and see. With Basel, you see new art appearing right before your eyes. There were artist everywhere creating art on any canvas they can find. With the last photo, I can't wait to go back and see the end result. 


Flashback Friday

It's always appropriate to post a flashback Friday when you have no new photos to post. I've been sitting on these photos for a while now and I always loved the shots of me in my favorite jeans and perfect striped shirt, which is my all time favorite thrifted find. It's outfits like this that remind me its all about good basics.

It's also appropriate when I want to talk about how much I miss my long hair. It's when you go through past photos that makes you miss the things you once had. Even though I don't have any regrets on cutting it, I just miss having the ability to do pretty braids and perfect buns.

Happy Friday!

Bar Cart Essentials

bar cart

When I think of decorating for the holidays or for my apartment in general, my go to places are Target, West Elm, Etsy and Hobby Lobby. Each of these places has affordable and just what you're looking for pieces. For the holiday's I focus on buying anything that sparkles, has cute sayings or is GOLD! Gold is a color that can transition into many Holiday seasons seamlessly or in my case it's a color I leave up all year. Just like the color gold, a bar cart is a piece of furniture that is timeless and something you need all year. This one from target is the most affordable I have seen and is the classic style that works with a lot of designs. In keeping with the theme of gold these are my bar cart essentials.

Oh do I love cold weather in Florida. Even this get up did not keep me warm. After I took these photos I threw on a big shaggy cardigan. I look forward to the days of layering and wearing fall colors. It makes you feel like the holiday's are coming.
