Little Details I Heart!

I have been an awful blogger, I know. Alas I have been sort of at a loss of what to blog about, as my apartment is almost finished (but not quite). However, I realized I hadn't really shown some of the small details of the decorative details in my apartment that I really adore, and some even have a little story behind them :)


This is the very first item I bought for my apartment. In fact, I bought it about an hour after I signed my lease. I walked into this little store, Paradiso , and fell in love with it (and basically everything else in the store). If you live in Baltimore, I HIGHLY recommend stopping by!

Anyway, this lamp was the beginning to my color scheme, and to be honest, we basically designed the rest of the apartment around this little lamp!


My father actually picked these up from Paradiso for me for a Valentine's Day present! I LOVE THEM!! Not only do I love the whole skull idea, but its also a little nod to my sorority days (what up CHI O!). They were the perfect little salt and pepper shaker for my apt, appropriately hardcore!



This little antique gold mirror my mother gave me, and to be honest, I really need to find the story behind it, if there is one. It is hung in my kitchen, and when this photo was taken, we realized it did such a cute little framing of my bed! Its just such a cute little feminine touch for the kitchen, and I also really loved the picture.


This little gem my mother bought me when I was in high school, when I was going through a particularly hard time in my life. She gave it to me for Christmas, and she said when she found it, she actually began to cry a little in the store, because the quote just struck her so.

"In my dream, the angel shrugged & said, 
if we fail this time, it will be a failure of imagination
 & then she placed the world gently in the palm of my hand."

I had to bring this piece with me when I moved, as it has meant so much to me over the years, and I love it being such a focal point in the room. It is one of those little details that remind you that you can get through anything, that you are strong enough, and that the bad times are only temporary, and don't let yourself forget it!

Current Wants

Hey Everyone!

I hope everyone has a great weekend, even if you were trapped in the nasty snowstorm that seemed to hit all of the East coast. I have been stuck in my apartment building since Friday. I AM READY TO GET OUT!!

They still have yet to plow the streets around me, soooo.... it looks like it could be a little while before I can go anywhere!

Luckily, this has given me ample time to stare at websites and pick out things I want to buy, but definitely shouldn't! Below are just a few of the things I really, really want to buy. Are there any things that you guys are recently drooling over?? If so, send them to me so I can drool too!

Lilly Pulitzer's Reef Readers. So cute for the blind like me!!


Latte Da! Mug by Lilly P. This would add such a lovely bright piece of flare to my desk at work!


Don't even get me started on the Murphee Scarf By Lilly. I have one, and am OBSESSED with it. I NEED MORE!


This little number is gorgeous. Lilly Pulitzer's Sea and Be Sean Tote is a must have for the Spring in my book! 

What are you spring wants???
