Dear Santa, I can explain…

It’s officially December 1… so take your advent calendars out, and let the countdown begin!

I love the holiday season and all the traditions that come along with it. Especially decorating the Christmas tree!


“The little tree that could” 

He’s not very big… or maybe I’m just a giant…

As for decorations, I like to keep my tree fairly simple with gold and silver ornaments. This year I found gold pine-cones in the bottom of my Christmas bin, so I decided to make ornament out of them by gluing rope to them. I though they turned out adorable.

I have 1 little ornament in my tree that doesn’t match the rest.  It was a gift from my parents, and it’s my favorite ornament. It symbolizes my forever love for Buzz Lightyear! Seriously though… To infinity and beyond!!

For the remainder of the night I sat and watched several family movies while cuddling my puppies on the couch and sipping on some red wine. It was a perfect night.

Apartment Living

This week, our poor little apartment is under construction. A large section of the bedroom ceiling is cracked and the gap has been getting gradually bigger. That means we had to move our bed into a vacant unit in our building, and will be sleeping there for the next 5 days. The only positive thing is that the vacant unit is the closest to the laundry room – hooray for convenience and not having to walk up and down 3 flights of stairs to get clean towels!

However, having to empty out our bedroom and shove everything into are already packed living room helped me realize that I need to get rid of stuff – A LOT of stuff! I have too many side tables that take up too much room and way too many unnecessary things in my closet. A purge is needed, and that also gives me an excuse to move things around and redecorate a little bit.

Home decor is definitely a weakness of mine. I love making my apartment feel like a home, just by adding plants, artwork, or decorative pillows. Putting a lamp in a different corner of the room, or adding a small rug, can make all the difference. Like I said, it’s definitely a weakness/slight obsession.

That’s why I decided to create a page on my blog called HOME DECOR, which will include a gallery of pictures from my apartment, inspiration ideas, DIY projects and wish lists. I love seeing the way other people decorate their spaces, so I wanted to share some insight into my cozy downtown apartment with you.

I can’t wait to reorganize my bedroom once the ceiling is fixed, and add some updated pictures to my blog.

Happy Monday everyone!
