everyday snapshots.

i lead a simple life, and simple things make me happy. i think sometimes when you have a blog, and you attend events, and you begin posting fabulous photos taken on expensive lenses of your perfectly planned out outfits, your life can start to look a little bit glossy. but here is my reality– i live in a small 1 bedroom home on south beach. my bathroom usually leaks. sometimes (like this week) my AC breaks in the same day that my sink clogs. most of my furniture is beautiful thrifted finds that i purchased for under $10. my kitchen doesn’t fit all of our kitchen gadgets, so we stuff them all above the fridge. we usually take walks to our local starbucks for coffees (and take outfit pictures along the way), and then we drink them while we watch claude eat her food (if she eats it, she is a picky eater). all of our bread is from our friend zak the bread baker, and matt usually makes us sandwiches for lunch. that’s what he is doing there ๐Ÿ™‚

my life is a regular plain life. little things make me happy. i love my fiance and my dog. i look forward to one day living in new york. and i cherish the time in this little apartment where the light isn’t so great, because one day i will look back at this time and miss it. โ™ฅ

  • This is such a cute post. I'm trying to cherish my dim apartment while I still have it too. My kitchen looks a lot like yours with the gadgets all stacked on top of the fridge because there's no room.

  • This is really well written ๐Ÿ™‚ And I think it's really important that people understand that it is not because you're wealthy that you're happy. Anyway, I'm really glad for you because you're getting married and it's really exciting! I love your blog and your outfits and I thank you for being so positive!
    You're a huge inspiration for me! And congratulations for the Halloween contest on Lookbook!!

  • My kitchen is a mess too, even though I try to keep it all organized, it's just not possible haha. I wish my apartment was filled with thrifted goodies. we have an amazing thrift store nearby! But I rent it fully furnished and it's all mainstream ikea stuff ๐Ÿ™

    I am happy to see this post today. It encourages me to stop focusing on being at every party, being on trend, have the most pulled-together appearance… and just be Me.
