Back To School — Dorm Room Essentials

And in the blink of an eye it’s mid August. How on earth is it back to school? I mean, where did summer even go? Since there’s no stopping time, we might as well embrace the fact that it’s time to shop for all your dorm room essentials. I’ve rounded up a boat load of cute, stylish items to make college life uniquely yours. But Kyla, I’m not in college? Don’t fret sweet thang, this little round up is still for you. Well, minus my dorm prank at the very end.

Sometimes they’re nice enough to let me get up close and personal and share their story. Today I’m featuring Kim Gunter, rug collector extraordinaire and the brains behind Woven Abode.

To all you single parents out there, I bow to you. Not sure how you do this day in and day out and stay sane.

A Color Study — Black

As of late, I’ve been having a love affair with the color black. I’ve never had copious amounts of bold hues in my home, but you find pops of pink, green and every shade of blue if you have a look around. After creating Potty Paradise, my love for the dramatic, moody effect the color black has on a space made my heart grow three times.

Here are a few things that have either made it into my shopping cart, or I’m wishing Santa would bring me…yes, I said Santa in June, I’m sorry. But it’s only because I’m in love with a pair of Gucci shoes that I’m going to have to save my pennies for.

Beautiful Distractions No. 5

Mercury Retrograde has made me want to Amazon Prime a helmet to my front door, sage my home and hang heeling crystals all around my body. As soon as my accountant started yelling at me about my taxes last Tuesday and The Boy’s travel plans got majorly snafooed, I knew something had to be afoot. Do you believe in Mercury Retrograde? Do you do anything to twart the confusion? I think I’ll just stay in bed, shop online, and watching the remaining DVR episodes of Little Big Lies.  I wanted to finish reading the book first, but didn’t have the patience. Confession…I’m a slow reader….I don’t know why, but it puts me to sleep. I also heard I need to This Is Us. Here’s what else I’m loving lately.
