I Want A House pt. 2

I've said it once, and I'll say it again. I'm over apartment life. I'm over waking up at 6am to the person above me hawking loogies so loud I can hear them through the floor. I'm over not being able to paint walls and have room for tons of furniture. I'm over not having a gorgeous kitchen and backyard.

Okay fine. I don't really need all of those things, but I sure would like em. I can just picture us now... Graham barbecuing while I'm tending to our herb garden. Haha! I secretly wish my life was like Sarah Dorsey or Young House Love. I so want to spend my days scouring Craigslist for deals and reupholstering couches.

But houses are expensive, and ya girl has to rent until my manfriend decides to bite the bullet with me.

For now, all I can do is lust.

And here's what I'm lustin' after currently...


I'm dying for a garden. I want to plant peonies and have fresh herbs on hand. How cute would this setup look on a back patio?!


Ok, this bathroom is everything. Except only as some sort of guest bath. Yall know I have way too much shit to not have cabinet space. But yeah... seriously digging the industrial look and my most coveted subway tile.


I would essentially love everything in this. I'm obsessed with neutrals and industrials and this is just perfection in my eyes.


I'll take one of these.

Also, I've been on a HUGE navy wall kick lately. I absolutely the look of neutrals, navy, and solid wood together. It makes my heart go pitter patter. Below are some of my favesies.




Isn't it funny how trends change? It still blows my mind that my mom's house was once covered in floral wallpaper and all brass accessories just a mere 15 years ago. It blows my mind even more that I currently hate some of the home decor pins I pinned a mere 2 years ago. Granted, my style has grown up a bit since I was in college, but that's neither here nor there.

Wonder what the next big trend will be now that chevron is pretty much dead and gone?

One day I'll have that house. Yall wait and see.

Internet Goodies

Hi friends, long time no write. I just haven't had the urge lately. My day job consists of writing articles, ad copy, and blog posts all the live long day, so pretty much the last blog post I want to write at the end of the day is my own. Weird how that works. Plus my life has been fairly uneventful these past few weeks. G has been out of town and the most exciting thing I did yesterday was get a cavity filled. Woohoo.

Weeks like these make me miss college so much. I miss the freedom of sleeping in, grabbing a long lunch with friends, and going to a bar at 9pm on a Tuesday night. Don't get me wrong, I love working, but most some days I want to go back to being a careless 21 year old.

For this post, I've rounded up some of my most interesting Internet finds as of late:

See article here. Can you believe this shit?! Turns out this was a really smart ad for the Samsung Galaxy note. I feel so cheated! However, as someone who works in marketing, this was incredibly genius. Props to you, Samsung.

One of my favorite Grantland writers/podcasters, Juliet Litman, did an interview with Chris Harrison (host of the Bachelor) this week and got tonnnnns of dirty deets about Juan Pablo. Turns out Juan Pab is a huge douche. Would've never guessed. Also, turns out Chris Harrison has the coolest job in the whole damn world. Basically spends 5 minutes of his day letting the ladies know its time for the final rose, then spends the rest of his time cahooting all over the world, fishing, surfing, and eating delicious food. No fair!

3// Oil Pulling
I recently read this article about the benefits of oil pulling. What the eff is oil pulling? Basically, putting a spoonful of coconut oil and swooshing it around in your mouth for 20 minutes, then spitting it out. It's a great detoxifier and literally pulls toxins out of your body by way of your mouth. People see better oral hygiene, breath, gums, a reduction in acne, better sleeping, more regulated hormones, etc., etc., Plus it also can help cure a hangover. This list goes on forever. I'm in.

Buy this here. Holy mother of god I need millions of these around my house.

I don't hate the idea of a Taco Bell breakfast waffle-taco. My day is essentially made when it starts with a breakfast taco and I certainly wouldn't mind a waffle being added into the mix.
