I always love love loveee re-decorating my room, or adding new pieces to it.
Here are some fun alternatives to everyday room necessities:

:Replace your old, single toned curtains with these!!  Still sticking to a neutral pallet, they will beautifully highlight any window.  Found @ Anthropologie (on sale, yay!):


:Re-new the look of your dresser with some funky knobs!  A cheap fix to a boring look.  Found @ Anthropologie....and also on sale! :

:For a finishing touch, brighten up an old carpet, with a splash of color! These rugs are both found @ Urban Outfitters:

Enjoy updating your room with whatever treasures you can find!

Funky gifts

At least among my friends...I always find the fall to bring lots of birthdays to celebrate!

Here are some fun gift ideas I've recently found...

:Sharky tea infuser, makes steeping tea a little more entertaining:

:DIY Mason Jar photo frame.  All you need is olive oil (to create a sepia effect), a mason jar, and some tape:

:Head Chefs funny kitchen utensils!!  I would love these for my kitchen:

:Apple stickers, this is my all time favorite...instead of gifting this...I may just buy it myself!:

Hope these gifts give you a little inspiration to go beyond giving the typical gift card :)

Bedroom Oasis...

So a while back I promised I would share pictures of my room up at college...
I'm always finding new additions for my bedroom and I'm very happy with the current look :)

:All my furniture minus my bed, is from The Barn in Castle Rock, this bookshelf is the latest addition to my room.  See all those books?  I have to finish those by the semester...wooohoo for being an English major!:

:I'm obsessed with bright, happy colors!  My quilt is from Anthropologie & my pillows are from PB teen.  The flowers in the corner are a collection from Michaels craft store.  I love to do collages, so the one you see on the wall is my own creation!:

:This desk is my pride and joy (also from the Barn).  I found it on sale for $40 dollars, but I have a feeling its value is much more than that!  It has an intricate fleur de lis design carved into the sides & fun antique clock face knobs.  My lamp is from the Liberty of London line that Target sold last summer.  All my Organizational bins are from the Container store, along with the most important thing, my white board calendar:

: I found this antique chandelier at the Barn as well, I wanted something different to display all of my bracelets & rings on.  I think I found the perfect piece!:

:& to tie my whole room together, a quote filled with colors that describe my room to a tee :):

& these are the lovely pretties I get to share my apartment with :)

Happy Decorating!

pumpkinspice & everythingnice.

Today I have been inspired by this rainy fall two items in particular.

My obsessions for the fall so far consist of the following...

:Black Hunter Wellies, in the original High gloss, $125 and perfect for snow or rain!:
(And you can buy cute fleece linings for the inside)

:Pumpkin Pie White Hot Chocolate:

3 cups whole milk
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/8 teaspoon cloves
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 ounces white chocolate (roughly chopped)
pinch salt

1. Heat the milk, pumpkin puree, and spices in a sauce pan until it just starts to simmer and remove form heat.
2. Add the chocolate and stir until it has melted.
3. Pour into mugs and top with whipped cream and garnish with cinnamon.
(serves 4)


Have a fab fall day :)
