Since starting a second job, I have happily been able to have some fun money and I’ve been coveting pretty things for both my apartment and my closet. 

{across from top left: west elm hourglasses for a pretty display / cb2 marta glasses to replace my chipped and cracked ones / west elm gold glassware for my bar-to-be / lands end striped tees to replace my old, stained ones / jcrew pixie pants-I already ordered these and am so excited to wear them!! / pbteen navy bordered sheets to refresh my bed / jcrew printed blouse / sally benedict painting that I LOVE / world market hexagon wine rack / jcrew blue shirt tail skirt}

Several of these are in my November budget and some are for maybe down the road. I’ll be sure to share!

What are you coveting lately?

I love this little bar vignette and it’s such a great reminder that I don’t need an elaborate bar setup to have a little home bar.

It’s been a bear of a week and I have to say I’m glad it’s over and I can put it behind me. Tomorrow I have a big event for work that I’ve been working on for awhile and I’m so excited to see it all come together! Tonight though it’s a glass of wine and a movie on the couch.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Ladies and gentleman, the bar cart bug has reached me. I like to think I was ahead of the curve as I have admired the bar cart in my grandparent’s home as long as I can remember. It’s most likely teak (all the furniture is mid-century modern and authentic…I always tell my grandpa how “in” his decor is, haha) and has two levels and a handle if I remember correctly. What always dazzled me was the assortment of cut crystal decanters not unlike the one below with their sparkling stoppers, magic looking liquids, and silver necklaces declaring the name of the contents. 


I have always wanted a cart of my own and it seems the current home decor trends are marching in the same direction. I probably will tackle this project in the fall and have my eye on a couple affordable carts:

{Ikea $49 / source}

{CB2 $49}

Or maybe a simple tray. I love the West Elm ones. 

And of course I’ll use the handy Matchbook Magazine Bar Cart Essentials list.
