Now that I’m officially home and embarking upon real life in NYC with two salaries coming into our home like a normal couple, it’s time to focus on the important things – home decorating.
For the most part, we’ve done the bulk of what we need to do with our apartment. There are a few more furniture items we need to buy to make the living space what we want it to be, but at this point it’s the little accessories that we need to buy to make the space look the way I want it, and in an effort to keep track of everything I want/need to buy, I will likely start posting items here as a way to keep myself focused on spending money on my environment and less on going out and drinking.
Okay, fine, let’s not kid ourselves. I will focus on spending equal amounts of time, energy, and money on my home and my outside “activities”.
First item on the must buy list, this candle stand for our decorative fireplace
It is in fact a Pottery Barn item (surprise!) and will be a perfect addition to our tiny apartment. With a space as small as ours, the more creative lighting and charm the better, and this will achieve both.
Hopefully this will be in my possession, candles included, no later than Christmas. It may even go on my Dear Santa list this year if I haven’t managed to buy it before Thanksgiving. The list is already started so no harm in adding to it, right? What can I say, I’m a girl who likes presents, it’s part of my charm.
So the decorating list has officially begun. Expect random posts about pillows, frames, jewelry boxes, and annoyed husbands from my home shopping spending habits.
