My white rocking chair, thrifted years ago in my over-eager preperation to move out. Also, a snippet of the awesome fireplace in our living room!
I bought myself a french press - I am in love with it, it's the first sort of functional piece I bought for myself for my apartment - aside from mugs. I swear my roomate Katharine and I are going to win a world record for owning the most mugs. These are some I thrifted a bit ago!
This isn't my apartment per say, but it's a pizza from a pizza joint around the corner from my apartment. It's the best pizza I've had guys, like, without a doubt. And I love me some pizza.
One of the first non-thrifted decor purchases, I bought a tapestry I intend on hanging in my bedroom from Urban Outfitters - I'm in love with it! I mean LOOK AT THE CUTE LIL ELEPHANTS!
And finally, this beauty arrived in the mail before my vacation. Do you guys know Ben & Katie from Chestnut Mocha? If you don't you should, they're two of my favourite bloggers and I absolutely love the little friendship that has grown between us through our blogs! They're so sweet, and Ben is a really talented artist! He's doing this thing that I absolutely LOVE where you can purchase a painting but the fun part is it's a surprise! I love this concept, I love that there's still hope for people trusting one another to follow through online and to take a leap of faith! This is the painting he sent me and I am completely, COMPLETELY smitten! I love his quirky style and I love canoes (How did he know?!) and I simply cannot wait to add this as the first piece of original art in my apartment! MAJOR thank you to Ben. I'm so so happy with it!
Anyway, I promise to take some proper photos and do a mini apartment tour once we have everything set up! Which should be soon - I move in more permanently in just a few weeks when school starts. WHICH I AM SO EXCITED FOR. I really just want to put this summer behind me, start a new chapter in life.
Kitty Snooks is also turning 1 soon. I have big plans for celebrating its birthday. So stay tuned!
(Does anyone else immediately think of the Young The Giant song when they start talking about Apartments? Or am I just becoming a crazy fan? They are my favourite band, but. Eh. Ps. that's a link to my favourite version of the song, incase anyone cares to know, hehe.)
