Wow, its been far too long! My life has been a whirlwind of craziness (all good, just busy)! We have been in the process of buying our first home and boy, is that a long intense process. We are due to close in the next couple of weeks and things have settled down just a tad bit.
Since we are moving into our new home so soon (and I finally have a chance to post) I though it would be fun to post some fun dressing room ideas or as I have been calling it with my hubby “my glam room.” He was so confused at first but I explained that I needed a place to put all my makeup, purses and shoes and a place with room for me to get ready and not hog up the bathroom. Here are some things I love and feel would be perfect for that dream dressing room!
I just really love the look of gold right now in almost every room. I think a funky colored rug and some cool furniture could really tie together the space and make it feel inviting. I love this bench from Anthropology and its functionality in a dressing room. I am also obsessed with this chandelier, I have been looking at so many fun beaded ones for our new home and just love this pottery barn one! Another great site that I go to all the time for fun lighting is Arhaus you can find so many great options here!
So today is a great day, I am home having a SNOW DAY! I feel like a little kid, so excited to not have to get dressed and travel to work haha. The weather here in NYC/Hudson Valley has been crazy. Yesterday was 60 degrees and then today there are blizzard and storm warnings in and around the area! I normally commute a while to work, almost 2 hours each way, so with the weather being so nasty right now I am sure it would take me closer to 3 hours…So I opted to not travel out and stay home.
Anyone else home for a snow day?!
So I know in my last post I mentioned my hubby and I have started the home buying process! It really has been a very new, exciting and nerve racking experience thus far. As long as all keeps running smooth we should be moving into our new home in July! So with that said I have of course been dreaming up each room and how I will decorate. We also are moving from an apartment so there are a few items that we do not own now that we will need to get. I have been filling up a cart on Wayfair (I know, a little premature, but I cannot contain my excitement!) and I thought I would make a post on some items we plan on getting or things I just love.
Is anyone else obsessed with Wayfair like me?? You can get anything you can think of and really furnish your entire home all on one site!
I love white and this table just jumped out to me. I would love to pair this table with chairs like the one I included in this post. We love to entertain so having a table that can fit 8+ people is a huge plus and this table is extendable. I also love the distressed finish!
The chairs are exactly what I would love to have for my dining room. I love how they are a neutral color and would be comfortable for an everyday kitchen chair as well.
I just love this nightstand for our master bedroom. I love the lines, the fact it is white and also has a drawer. It looks large enough to have a light on it as well which i really like to have next to the bed. I plan on doing one on each side.
THIS BED. I just love it. Again, the distressed look is amazing and I love that its natural wood but also has white on it. I was originally looking for an all white bed but did not seem to like many that I came across. This is one that I think would go great in our new bedroom and with those nightstands!
I love the look of new rugs that have that distressed worn-in look. I think this rug would be a nice addition to our bedroom. Again, its more neutral but I love that it still has pretty blues in it.
I love this sofa for a couple of reasons. I love the blue velvet and I love that this is a pull out bed. This would be perfect in my office/glam room I plan on having. We want each bedroom to be able to sleep people, again since we like to entertain, but I did not want an actual bed in each room. So this is perfect.
This ottoman is just awesome. It comes in a ton of different colors and would be perfect in my glam room or even in the living room.
Any new items from Wayfair that you have been eyeing?!
Hi loves! I hope everyone had a nice long weekend 🙂
I am loving this transition time, from Summer to Fall. I drove home this past weekend to spend time with my family. My drive was so gorgeous! All the leaves are starting to change and it just made the drive so enjoyable! I was noticing all the vibrant colors of the leaves and it really inspired me into finding some fun fall items that remind me of those amazing colors. I put together a couple go to outfits, I could live in either one of these outfits LOL.

I hope you all enjoyed a long weekend (I sure did!). We went up into the Adirondack Mountains (SO GORGEOUS, if you are in NY or ever visit, go check out Saranac Lake area). Any who, I am at the 10 day mark for our trip. 10 days left to get all the last minute things on our list! I have an order coming in from SheIn. I just cannot get over how many things I purchased at such great prices! I wanted to share some of my buys! They are currently having another AMAZING sale right now. Promo codes are below and you can get up to 45% off your purchase!!
Happy hump day. In just a few short days it will be a long weekend (and July already!) so crazy. I just cannot wait for this long weekend. Tom and I are going to escape to the Adirondacks for some fun outdoorsy activities. Our friend has a cabin on a lake up there, this could not have come at a better time! Toms schedule has been crazy town so it will be nice to see friends and relax a bit this weekend. Plus, it is really our last weekend to do anything and see people before our trip! The following weekend is the weekend before we leave which will be full of all the last minute shopping and packing we will need to do since we leave that following Friday, right after work! I cannot believe how fast the time has gone by! Any fun plans for this long weekend??
Now onto this post. I just love denim shorts, you can dress them up or down and they go with just about anything. I really need to get some new ones for this trip and came across these great deals and thought I would share. You can never have too many denim shorts, right??
So excited the weekend is almost here! This week crawled by even though it was rather busy. I am looking forward to making my way back home for Father’s Day. It will be so nice seeing the family! Any fun plans for the weekend?!
As you know, if you have been following my posts, I am getting ready for a fun Euro trip in 4 short weeks! So as you can imagine my mind has been on what cute outfits I can buy and come up with for each day of the trip haha. I have been in love with wedges lately. I thought it would be fun to post some of my favorites that I have been eyeing for this trip. I like to get wedges that can double for day and night and are comfy, casual and easy to match with most outfits. That way a couple pairs of wedges can be worn with a few different outfits. I am also loving espadrilles lately too!
Hi loves! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. Honestly, Tom and I had plans to do a bunch of things around the apartment and we ended up catching up on sleep and relaxing most of it instead! Yesterday it was so rainy and I love nothing more then having the windows open and listening to the rain, its SO calming. So overall we had a great weekend even if we didn’t get done the things we wished to do, there is always next weekend 🙂

We did go out Saturday night for a little Mexican dinner in town. I decided to get dressed up in this cute floral sleeveless turtleneck dress I bought that has an open back (pictures above). I decided to wear a cute fitted, strappy, crop top underneath it to complete the look. I also did a fun braid in my hair to change it up from my usual down and wavy look. I got my dress at a little boutique in the city but I found a couple cute ones that have the same sort of style that I found here:
Hi dolls! TGIF! I hope everyone enjoyed a nice short week. I loved having Monday off, I think that should be the new norm, especially since Monday is by far the worst day of the week LOL. It made this week fly by! The weather over the holiday weekend was GORGEOUS in NY, lots of activities outside which is always a plus!
I thought I would end the week with some staple items. I love go to outfits that are cute but also casual and comfortable. I just love a good t-shirt and jeans and I thought these accessories were perfect as well. You can never go wrong with a cute choker necklace and a nice light lip color!
