celebrate / thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving I am thankful for…
…my family who is always loving, supportive, and available, even though they’re far away.
…my friends both near and far who are my moral compass, my family away from home, my confidants, my cheerleaders, my brothers and sisters.
…not one but two jobs that allow me to live a comfortable, full life.
…a beautiful apartment with a truly awesome roommate.
…all of my lovely blog followers who inspire me to keep going.
…the ability to appreciate my blessings, no matter how small.

celebrate / hanukkah


My roommate and I have a latke and menorah lighting date and I’m so so excited. I have loved this menorah since I was maybe 10 and flipped through my mom’s Source for Everything Jewish catalog. Even though it’s not technically Kosher (all 8 candles are supposed to be the same height), I would love to add it to my collection.

quote / small steps

A much needed reminder.

decorate / bathtub

Yes please.

wed / bride

listen / pitch perfect

It’s not secret among my friends that I’m OBSESSED with Pitch Perfect (guilty). I know all my fellow fans love the soundtrack, but have you seen this video?
It seems that people could submit videos of themselves singing the parts of the arrangement and they made a really cool video. 
Have an aca-awesome day! (Oh yeah, I went there.)

inspired / candles

Candles candles candles and more candles. I love them.

wear / stripes with waxed denim

Navy stripes and black waxed it!

I apologize in advance for the quiet around here this week. I got thrown for a bit of a loop and am also working on the back end of the blog a bit. I’ll be sharing images I love in the meantime. Bear with me!

Reminds me of the staycation mentality :)

How beautiful is this Thanksgiving table from Waiting on Martha?

I am SO excited for this weekend. I have both days off and it’s supposed to be in the 50’s (not too bad for mid-November). I get to see some cousins tonight for a drink and have a staycation all weekend with a special someone. Can’t. Freaking. Wait.

I hope everyone has a nice weekend!!

inspired / club monaco

While cutting through the Copley Mall/Prudential Center last week, I snapped this picture of the Club Monaco windows. I find the shades of blue on the bookshelves and the rug so pretty! It would be a great masculine library/office/study. Add a little pop of pink and you have the perfect compromise.

wed / draped ceremony

What a stunner of a ceremony entrance!! I love the look of the draped curtains with garlands of greenery. This could also work as the backdrop for the ceremony, the entrance to the reception, or modified as a photo booth backdrop!
Happy wedding Wednesday!

wear / fall layers

While looking back at my Everyday Inspiration Pinterest board, I noticed I’ve pinned some layered looks that not only will be great for the cold weather over the next few months, but also use clothes I already have (with room for maybe one or two little additions).

I have pretty much this entire outfit. My plaid shirt has more black in it, so I think I would do plaid shirt, black sweater, camel blazer.

Love these layered neutrals.

My colored vest is orange, but I like the idea of layering it over my navy and white gingham button up.

Vest OVER the blazer? Love it! Adds warmth without restricting movement the way a blazer under a coat does.

I love the idea of white jeans in the winter but I’ve never had the guts to do it. Maybe this is the year.

What are your favorite layered looks?

How sweet is this fall engagement photo by Gina Brocker Photography? I love that it’s so cozy and loving and fall. I’m working both days this weekend and prepping to have some friends over on Monday. As usual, I’ve made social plans too: BU/BC hockey game tonight to celebrate a special birthday and seeing my cousin who is in town for work!
Happy weekend!

three little spaces

Lately I’ve been pinning a lot of home exterior pictures that jumped out at me, fueling my dreams of one day building a dream house.
