Not really. But a little bit.
I don’t know what’s been going on with me lately. For the past few weeks, I’ve been obsessing over all things home-related. Kitchen, bedroom, living room… it all must be perfected!
Nothing is safe.
If you recall, I moved into a fixer-upper, and my dad is in the midst of flipping it. I’ve just been kinda living here in the meantime. It’s nice when your landlord is father dearest, but when rent is late, it’s pretty easy for him to find you.
Anyway, much of my furniture and kitchenware is either from my grandmother or a Walmart necessity buy. Lately, I’ve been acting adult-like and buying things to spruce up the place.
Like a sofa and loveseat set.
Everybody is a fan.
And allow me to introduce the first addition to my upcoming bedroom makeover:
I’m serious when I tell you I’m in love with that nightstand. It’s a refinished antique, and I’m hoping to figure out how to sand/repaint my existing bedroom furniture to match it. Any tips out there are greatly appreciated. I’ve heard I’m supposed to use vaseline to get an antique-y look? Someone educate me.
And I got a lamp that matches the motif from World Market, but it isn’t quite feeling photogenic today.
That’s a lie. I’m just lazy and didn’t photograph it. But I promise, it’s cute.
I finally put together my jewelry holder to match all this ivory nonsense, as well.
The bedroom overhaul hasn’t happened yet because I still have yet to find a comforter I like/have the budget for.
(beautiful Anthropologie bedding)
I love all of these, but since they are all from Anthropologie, I’d have to sell my soul for them. Has anyone seen a thick (it’s gotta be puffy) Anthro-looking comforter of this persuasion lately? Haaaalp.
And as for the kitchen, I got Chloe some new dog bowls.
AND I FREAKIN’ ORGANIZED AND CLEANED OUT MY PANTRY.
This happens never.
But I did it. And you can see stuff now.
You know, like my absurd amount of Love Grown Foods oat clusters, nut butters, and protein powders.
And check out my new iced tea brewer! My house is about to be all UP in Teavana iced blueberry bliss.
I also got some cute glass airtight jars for my fitmixer protein powder that I add to my oatmeal every morning. Because I am a meathead.
Speaking of oatmeal, winna, winna, Gardein dinna, Danielle. Congrats on your Love Grown Foods HOT OATS giveaway win!
[Us vegetarians don't have chicken dinners. Gardein is where it's at.]
E-mail me your mailing address and the flavor of oat clusters you would like at alyssa[at]lifeofblyss[dot]com.
And just when I start to get worried I’m out-adulting myself, something like this happens backstage:
No, it’s not mine. And yes, I know it doesn’t fit. I just wish you could see the sparkles in the photo.
