Some best girlfriends came over last night for an unofficial housewarming of sorts (probably the only one I'll have to be honest) and rearranged all the furniture, which resulted in a laundry list of furniture recommendations to make the place complete. Mirrors, rugs, bookshelves, console tables, art. Funny how you think you are downsizing but wind up having to buy a bunch more shit. Although, my old place left much to be desired in terms of any real style, so a part of me is happy to upgrade things. However, I am really going to try and keep the fact that I want simplify my life and possessions in mind when looking for stuff the fill the space.
My latest obsessions have switched from fashion to home decor and DIY sites. Pinterest and Apartment Therapy, anyone? I've become more familiar with The Home Depot than I've ever wanted to, tackled painting half the apartment, and now I have a bunch of ideas swirling around in my head. My very handy friend L said she'd help me make a couple of console tables out of a bookshelf I'm not using. I also scored a great find on cl —two Sam Avedon Alladin Plastic Chairs for a rehab project, similar to this.
I hope everyone is off to a good week. I'm seeing Cinderella at The 5th Ave on Thursday with this lovely lady, and I have a date (a very cute date I might add) to my work holiday part on Friday. Life is good.
