One day I worked with two Korean girls who told me about sheet face masks, and I was intrigued. My normal face-plan is pretty low-key: lotion after morning shower, face cleaning wipe at night. But these masks seemed easy and quick enough to try out. The verdict? They’re mostly unnecessary to life, but I love them! One of my … More the sheet mask
I feel the time has come to really start looking for places to move–we even talked to a real estate agent last week! But here I go again seeing things I’d love to buy for the house. There’s so many odd things out there I’d love to add to my collection of randoms. I visited … More no joke, i want these
I had this random thought to write a blog post about my uneven eyebrows, and then I realized maybe it’s not such a good idea to publicly talk about imperfections that others might not have noticed (but will surely notice after I tell them). But maybe that’s the next step to really being ok with them. … More my eyebrows are uneven
A while back I tried to come to terms with the beige laminate universe that is my kitchen. I scrubbed and cleaned all I could, but in the end it was still dingy laminate. Then I happened upon a few articles about updating rental kitchens and came across the great idea to wallpaper the cupboards. I researched my colors, ordered some samples, … More i put wallpaper on the cupboards
The other day Tyler and I were discussing the fact I have no gray hairs (as I sneakily tried to rip out his random ones). We ended up with the conclusion that gray hairs are Tyler’s sign of aging, whereas mine is back pain. And Tyler goes, “What would you rather have though, gray hair … More shopping for an office chair
I was lamenting to Tyler the other day that I worry I’ll never be able to have a nicely decorated place because I’m too drawn to the weird. It’s like this inner battle between wanting everything to look simple and Swedish, but with like 20 different accent pieces. Sometimes I feel like my wardrobe has the same … More happy finds
Tonight this conversation happened with Mason… Mason: Which president did they call Ike? Me: I believe that was Eisenhower Mason: Oh yeah. We learned about his political ads in class today. Do you remember those when they were on TV? Me: Um, Mason, I wasn’t even alive then. Mason: Oh… Me: I’m pretty sure that … More i’m how old?
I have an eternal love for cardigans. I wear them pretty much all year long. Short, lightweight ones in the summer, long sleeve fuzzy ones in the winter, and a special “house cardigan” with the elbows hanging on by a a few threads (but no holes yet!). They’re cozy, easy to throw on, and they keep … More fake shop friday: blanket poncho
A couple of weeks ago I saw this article for ideas to update a rental kitchen. As I am currently living in such a kitchen, stuck deep into the 1930’s, I was hoping this article would unearth some amazing insight for me. What I got was a lot of advice I couldn’t take (what renter is … More to wallpaper or not to wallpaper?
One of my most favorite things is shopping at antique stores, one of the only places I can convince Tyler to go with me without a Diet Coke bribe. Something about a completely random find is so exciting. Sort of like a treasure hunt. The best finds, however, are found on the sidewalks in our neighborhood. Fun fact in … More dumpster (or sidewalk) diving
