I’m back! I am so sorry that I haven’t made a post in a while, my life has been CRAZY!! With getting registered for classes, work and constantly driving back and forth from the town I lived in to the town I worked in, it seemed like I never had a free moment. Well that’s all going to change now because I MOVED HOUSE!!! I actually moved from an apartment to an actual house. And I couldn’t be more excited.

So here is a little backstory to help you all understand why I am beyond excited for this move. I was living in a college town about 45 minutes away from the town I grew up in. I have been going to school for….too long and it is very hard to find a job in the town I was living in. It’s very small aside from the University being there. This past April I got a job in my home town working at a small boutique. So for about 5 months I was driving 45 minutes there and back, about 4-5 times a week. It. Was. Exhausting. About 3 months into doing this drive constantly my boyfriend and I decided that we would move to my home town. He is starting classes at the community college here in town and I am finishing my degree online. We both work inmy home town so it just made sense to move down!

It took about two months for us to find a place that we liked and saved up enough for our deposit and first months rent. We also decided that one of our friends was going to move in with us, so there are 3 of us living in our new house. I absolutely love it! There is a huge yard for our dog, a garage for my boyfriend to work in and I have a room for my own office!!! (picture above)

I am so excited for all of the post I want to do in the future! I have an office tour coming once I have everything unpacked and settled. I am just so excited for this next step in my life and I can’t wait to share it with all of you!!! I would love to hear any ideas or topics you would like me to do a post about, please please please comment below!

Until next time!

xoxoxo!

Coffee Table Books

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

I love seeing what books people like to keep around their house. It helps me get inspiration into how I want my home to look, as well as, allowing me to understand that person better. These are the three books I currently have on my coffee table (amongst the piles and piles of magazines I have laying around my apartment haha).

The Fashion Book- Phaidon:

This book is like my bible. It is the A-Z guide of all things fashion. This book shows every person who created and inspired the fashion world. This book spans over two centuries with the whole industry represented. This book is a guide to over 570 clothing and accessory designers, photographers, stylists, schools, models and editors. As well as, the icons who instigated or symbolize an entire style or movement. This is great for those who really want to know the fashion industry inside and out.

14,000 things to be happy about- Barbara Ann Kipfer:

I have wanted this book for such a long time. Even just skimming through the pages you find things that make you happy! Whether its watching the sunset/rise, going to the beach, watching the snow fall or things  as small as Aunt Jemima  syrup, sipping a coke or getting the answers you want from a magic 8 ball. This book is just a friendly reminder that despite anything that goes wrong in your life, there is always something to be happy about.

101 Things I Learned in Fashion School- Alfredo Cabrera with Matthew Fredrick:

My mom got this book for me. This little book is super helpful for anyone in fashion. The book starts with “Fashion was born in the 12th century” and ends with a quote by Yves St. Laurent “Fashions fade, style is eternal.” Throughout the book there are little tips about how to illustrate, how to tie a tie, how to cut fabric, the measurements of average models and other helpful tips!

 

Anywhere you look in my apartment you will find a book or a magazine that has to do with fashion or the industry. I love when my passions bring out a passion in others! Let me know what books you like to keep around your home!!! Like, follow, comment and share!!

xoxo!!!
