Guys, It’s been forever again! Do you get sick of me saying that all the time? You should be by now. I’ve been so busy with work and putting in way more hours than I had in the past. It’s a nice change of pace, but It’s taking some getting used to. My house got seriously messy there for a minute! There’s no real news around here, lately. Same old, same old. It’s actually kind of nice. I’ve really craved routine, and I’ve finally got it. Since there’s nothing new going on, I though I would update you on my current wish list! You would think that spending $5,000 of someone else’s money in the past week would sort of satisfy your shopping needs, but it totally doesn’t. It makes it worse, and makes me realize how much I want for my house. It’s silly, but it’s how it goes.
This rug is less of a “wish list” item and more of a “I totally bought it” item… Oops. I haven’t gotten it yet, but it’s on it’s way. Our bathroom rug bit the dust in the washer so I’ve been looking to replace it. Our previous rug was similar but with reds. With the blue walls and the white vanity, it kind of had me singing the Star Spangled Banner most mornings. I decided I wanted to try a more monochromatic look, ’cause that’s my thing…
This past week I went to Z Gallerie for the very first time. I really don’t know how that is, but I had never been. Most of their stuff is a bit too glitzy for my taste, but I did fall in love with quite a few things there.
I really don’t know why but this little shot glass set had me at “Hello!” I almost NEVER entertain, but for some reason when I saw this I wanted to invite all my imaginary friends over for shots! Haha! Sometimes I feel like if I have all the nicknacks for really great entertaining, I’ll be more likely to actually want to entertain. It’s probably not going to work, but oh well.
Wine glasses have always been a conundrum for me. I really prefer drinking out of the proper type of wine glass, but I also HATE having a ton of stuff. Please, tell me where I’m supposed to put all these “proper” wine glasses?!? When I saw these, also from Z Gallerie it was like a dream come true. Combo red and white wine glasses?! They’re so perfect. I most likely will be buying these.
This is a strange thing coming out of my mouth, because I hated it for so long, but I’ve turned into a bit of a whiskey sipper. So, now I need fancy rocks glasses! I love how quirky these are.
Ok peeps…this is serious knowledge I’m about to drop… Z Gallerie has the NICEST and most reasonably priced faux stems I have seen anywhere. These are like Target prices but SOOOOOO much nicer and more realistic. I’m 100% going back to pick of some of these for myself. Also, some of these:
I LOVE fiddle leaf trees so hard, but I know there’s no way in hell I could keep one alive. These stems are so nice looking and I won’t ever kill them! Just FYI in the store you can buy individual stems instead of a pack like what they offer online.
These are also on my “bought it but haven’t received it yet” list. I never in a million years thought I would buy high top Chucks. I wear my low top ones all the time, though. So, it was time to take the plunge.
I’ve always hated myself in hats, but I have always wanted to wear them. I’ve finally decided that maybe I’m just being too hard on myself and it doesn’t make my head look as flat as what i’m seeing. Life is short, I want to wear hats. It would be cool if it was a sports team hat, but let’s be honest, I’ve not watched a single minute of any sporting event in the last 4 years. So, a White Sox hat is only going to make me look stupid, but a plain baseball hat might make me look as sporty as I wish I was.
I want all of it. Literally, everything about these two white, black, and leather rooms feel like everything I am in life! Or at least I wish my living room looked that sophisticated, laid back, and well traveled.
I’m still totally working on convincing myself that I’m not too Plain Jane to rock a choker necklace, but I do think I want one. Just in case I get brave enough to wear it to Walgreen’s one time, and if people don’t really seem to notice it too much than I’ll wear it again. Baby steps.
Two of these pillows have been sitting in my Etsy shopping cart for weeks! I want them so bad! I will forever and always be completely in love with indigo. I will also always and forever struggle with spending $62 on a pillow, but I’m probably going to have to do it. I love it too much not to!
I’ve really wanted to start switching out some of my vases for some vases and pots that feel more like art. These from Crate and Barrel are SO beautiful!
Well I think that’s about it for now. That’s plenty of things to want!
