Spring Sneaks

Blog3 v2blog3 v3Blog3 v4Blog3 v1

Happy Saturday all! One of my favorite things to wear over the weekend is easy, slide on sneakers that are super comfy, and also super cute! Found the perfect pair, and a few others from H&M, that come in metallic gold (my favorite) and light blush!

Love pairing cute sneakers with my new, favorite distressed jeans, a t-shirt dress, or even lounging my joggers! The metallic gold adds some edgy style to your outfit!

Check out some of my other favorite, spring inspired sneaks here:

Also, you’ll be seeing me wearing my favorite destroyed and frayed jeans a lot this spring, because they’re such trendy, fun addition!  Check out other favorites here:

Have a great Saturday dolls!

Happy Tuesday readers! Countdown to Friday has already begun for me.  This past weekend I was visiting my beautiful mother in Charleston, SC.  We had a blast – dinner and drinks, shopping and exploring, I love some quality time with my momma, but boy am I exhausted from such a busy weekend.

Looking forward to a weekend of relaxation.  Here’s a sneak peak into my bedroom, where I will be planning to relax on all weekend — full of vegging, eating yummy snacks and watching countless movies!  Wayne, Mr. Prince Charming, made a special guest preview and wanted to show off his outfit too!   I’m so lucky to have someone who is so photogenic! 🙂

All details from my bedroom decor and our outfits are below — enjoy!!

Fall(en) for Voluspa

blog-v1blog-v2blog-v3blog-v4blog-v6blog-v7

Fall is officially among us and it’s the perfect time to start lighting candles; it just makes a room feel cozy and warm when the weather starts to get a little chilly.

One thing, besides flowers, that I have an obsession with is candles: small tealights, three wick, floral, seasonal, even citronella for the outdoor terrace, I can’t ever get enough!!  I have a huge under-the-bed storage bin full of different candles, different scents, different brands and one of my absolute favorites that I purchase every year from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (Nsale), is the Voluspa Metallo Tin Candle sets.  There’s different collections, Maison Jardin & Maison Blanc, that are available during the Nsale — I have both and all six scents are just to die for — very lux!!

They come in beautifully decorated tins, with either florals, or vintage gold, luxury designs which feature three different scents per collection.  I have both the large, 11 oz. sizes and small, 4 oz. sizes.  These make great gifts, either as the whole kit or just one of the candles!  The hardest part is deciding which to light first since they all smell fabulous.  Another amazing aspect of purchasing these in the kit, is the price!

In Anthro or Bloomies, these 2-wick candles individually run between $16-$18, during the Nsale, they run $15. 90 for the small collection (3 mini candles) and $29.50 for the large 2-wick collection (3 large candles)!! Seriously one of my favorite purchases during the Nsale!

**SALE** One of my favorite scents, Maison Blanc “Pink Citron”, is currently on sale at Bloomies for only $9.60 — almost half off for the 2-wick candle – check it out here!!

Do any of my readers love this brand and their collections as much as me?!

Darling Dining!

I’m so excited to start sharing different rooms, the very few, within my apartment which I just adore. Over the next few posts, I will give you a walk-through of my favorite spots in my 1 bed, 1 bath, 850-square foot Hamilton Heights gem, my humble abode.  We did one walk-through of the occupied apartment and immediately fell head-over-heels for it (you’ll see why in the photos)! After a long, and expensive process (Broker fees in NYC are ridiculous), it was finally ours, our first “home” together.

I just had so many ideas to decorate each room, which is a true passion of mine.  I’d say the style of my interior decor choice is very modern, feminine and clean mixing vintage pieces in a modern setting and color scheme.

One thing Wayne (my very handsome, loving and supportive boyfriend of almost 4 years) and I love to do in our home is host dinner parties with our closest friends.  What’s a dinner party without a dining room?  Yes, in NYC, we finally had a dining room which fits a table, chairs and bar cart! This place is actually heaven!

The round dining room table we purchased off of Craigslist, it’s Ikea Ingatorp that can expand to seat 6, for only $40!

These gorgeous tufted dining chairs, I purchased from Target in “Glacier”.  They come as a pair.  You’ll see from my other furniture choices that I love the elegant, tufted look in my pieces.  My recommendation is to wait until Target has a sale to purchase these before buying them full price.  Also, if you have a Target card, you get 5% off every purchase!

The soft rug was purchased from Wayfair.  I highly recommend checking this site out for quality products at a low rate.  I was a little hesitant about the rug because it ended up being the exact diameters of the table and chairs, but honestly I just love the colors in the rug and it helps the room decor flow nicely between the dining and living room.

The vintage, gold bar cart  was another steal from Target.  I got it a few years ago during a Black Friday sale and Wayne absolutely loves it.  He has a knack for crafting cocktails for our guests and it’s so fun experimenting with the different liquors and flavor combinations. A few other options: Houzz Bar Cart,  Vintage Bar Cart with Bottle Holder, and World Market Bar Cart.

Some other sites that I usually find good deals on furniture and home accessories are: World MarketJoss & MainOne Kings Lane, Christmas Tree ShopsHouzz and last but not least, Home Goods!

Thank you for stopping by and I’m so excited to keep sharing my lovely apartment with you!
