Shelved and Stacked

It’s no surprise that I love a perfectly styled bookcase.  I use books all throughout my house to create height, balance and to fill my shelves with inspirational titles. I just scooped up two new books recently {thanks Amazon} and have a few more on my wish list. Looking for a gift? A beautiful coffee table books is always a good idea! Shop my favorites below.

Markette Nola

My local West Elm and Juley {of Upperlyne} hosted the greatest Etsy Pop-Up shop a few weeks back. I had the best time browsing local vendors and even picked up a few things. I scooped up a small original piece from Markette and absolutely love her work. The perfect addition to any gallery wall and the prints {and cards} make great gifts!

Fill Your Walls with Pieces you Love

2015-03-15_22-09-18

As I get older I give more thought to the things I purchase and am trying to invest in pieces I truly love and that I will keep forever. One thing my boyfriend and I both enjoy is art! He and I are both always on the look out for original art that fits our budgets. I recently commissioned my first painting and I am truly obsessed! I’ve always loved the unique look of Frida Kahlo and now she hangs proudly on my wall! The other two flower paintings are by an artist I found through a friend, Jesse. You can find both artist on Etsy!

Bedroom Confessions

When it comes to my bed, I’m extremely OCD. I won’t leave the house without the bed made, EVER. Even if it means running late. I’ve been this way as long as I can remember, and if someone else tries to make it, it’s not the same. When I was younger I was never the girl to let my friends hang out on my bed, it was a place for sleeping and I didn’t want it messed up until I was ready to get in it. Crazy I know, hence the post title. But there is something to be said about a well made bed. It sets the tone for your bedroom and your day and creates a sanctuary to call your own. What’s funny is whenever I see a really well made bed, I get a little envious and the itch to change my own. What’s even more funny is I happen to work for an amazing linen company, so everyday I see beautifully well made beds, that are constantly providing inspiration.

Poppin | Work Happy

Even though I’m far out of school and I don’t have any little ones, I LOVE school supplies. New pens and notebooks, I can’t resist. This time of year the urge to buy new desk accessories is in full force! That’s where Poppin comes in. Poppin is such a fun place to shop for new supplies. I love how you can shop by color or interest. And the pen selection, to die for!

Clean Lines

I went on a major cleaning spree this past week. Organizing and de-cluttering my entire apartment and have found myself drawn to clean lines. This handbag and this wine rack are two finds this week that demonstrate just that. The wine rack is just $16.99!
