Belle Vie / 32

DSC_2549DSC_2567DSC_2467DSC_2736DSC_2750DSC_24751. Our spider plant is dying…I think. Also please ignore it’s ugly pot, it needs to be re-potted into something more aesthetically pleasing. Any tips for keeping a healthy and happy spider plant? Ryan has quite a green thumb, but this lil baby seems unhappy, still. Also, our Brennan Michael candle is still going strong, and seriously, it smells amazing, get yourself one!
2. We have been looking after Ryan’s family dog Beans for the last month. Watching her and Gus play is actually so hilarious.
3. There aren’t many details about my apartment that I truly enjoy, but I love the mirror and light fixture in our bathroom.
4. Hey, there’s me, in the mirror!
5. My go-to breakfast of late – greek yogurt, fruits, fruits, fruits and flax seeds (also I aint no food photographer, this is real life peeps)
6. Beans needs constant attention and steals all the socks!

A House Is A Home

DSC_0860Our bedroom was the first room that really came together after the move. It’s not a very large bedroom, so really, deciding what and where furniture went was not a difficult task. Save for some picture frames that still need to find their rightful place on the wall (you don’t know how many times I move picture frames around until they find their desired spot…it’s embarrassing), and a couple things we need to finish off the room, it’s pretty well done. I had this dream of having a lot of white furniture and white walls (okay, we have the white walls), very bright, with colourful accents here and there – maybe a bright colored arm chair, a patterned rug – but alas, most of the furniture we own is wood, which to be honest, is very nice – we have some beautiful antique pieces (my dresser for one) – but obviously what I envisioned is not possible, for now. If doll hairs grew on trees, maybe then would my dreams come to fruition sooner than later. All In due time.

How rad is this dress by the way!? My internet pal, Ashley of Milk Teeths, posted it to her shop instagram, and my eyeballs immediately burst with love, and then after the love at first sight settled, I had a moment of panic, like, what if someone buys this before me? And then it was like daggers bursting out of my eyes. Anyways, seeing as how I had such a strong reaction to this dress, I knew I had to buy it, and so I did, and here we are. If you guys haven’t check out Ashley’s blog and shop (I’m sure you have), I urge you to do so. She’s such a charmingly funny, rad and beautiful gal, with an amazing eye for vintage clothes and housewares.

I hope you all had a great weekend, mine was pretty fun.
