life according to iphone - christmas edition

How was your Christmas? Mine was lovely and filled with a last-minute Christmas Tree adventure, lots of wrapped goodies for the dog, a sparkly gift to myself, cheesy colored lights and (of course) matching pajamas. What could be better? Hope yours was just as magical. 

I'm off to Chicago in just two days, and plan to soak up as much family down time as I can before my plane takes off and I soar off to my new life in the Midwest. Cheers!

small spaces

Part of the reality of moving to a new city is a very tiny budget and an even tinier apartment to decorate with that very tiny budget. As I plan for my new space, I'm having to get creative, get thrifty and get used to feeling slightly claustrophobic, but I'm learning that this could actually be kind of fun.
These days, the internet is overflowing with inspiration and my wheels are officially spinning with thoughts of pint-size furniture, simple accessories and lots of light. But first on my list is a storage solution for a girl with a lot of shoes and a cramped closet. So tell me . . . how do you save space while still keeping your style?

a new adventure

I'm back in action with some exciting news to share...
I'm returning to my Midwest roots and moving to Chicago after the holidays! I'm all at once excited, terrified, anxious and hopeful for all that comes with a new adventure, and I can't wait to share details and stories with all of you along the way.
In the meantime, I'm knee deep in boxes, job searches and adjusting my wardrobe to fit in with big city style -- and frigid weather! For starters, I'm dreaming of opaque tights, classic accessories and the perfect fur vest. Stay tuned throughout the holiday season for more details and inspiration, and thanks for sharing in my new adventure with me!
