one bed + one bath

I’ve been so scattered lately, but so pumped! After shacking up in a 2-bed/2-bath place for 6 months in California and later coming home to live with my parents for another almost 6 months, I’m so ready to be roommate-free!! Even though I will be eating top-ramen with canned veggies + plastic champagne glasses of tap-water, I’m overjoyed to have a space to decorate as my own! In between my trips I’ve tried to shop around for budget-friendly *cough* CHEAP *cough, cough* furniture. Saving has definitely been quite the challenge!

I’ve been doing some major upholstery shopping since I really want to style the place in a kind of modern bohemian chic type feel with a dash of moroccan inspiration I think. My Pinterest has actually been a huge player in pinpointing my style – clothing and otherwise. I have NO idea why I didn’t join up earlier! I have become a pinning fool.

Oddly interesting household items I found during my upholstery fabric hunt:

1. Graffiti-can looking alcohol shaker
2. Brass knuckles meat-tenderizer
3. A piggy bank perfect for a hurt economy
4. I don’t quite get the “mustache” trend, but this wine bottle opener is kinda cute. 

And I just started a knitting class in the Houston area 2 days ago! I’ve been wanting to learn for the longest and I have continuously inspired by Dana of the blog I am DWJ and her beautiful knitting!! It’s the perfect craft to take with me on layovers and looks like I’ll be starting my practice tonight in Toronto. Speaking of I need to start getting packed to leave . Updates soon!

P.S. — Cute site for how-to videos for knitting on Wool And The Gang.



  1. Enjoy your new space. I’ll be waiting to see how you decorate. Your intended plans sound fantastic! And, I’m glad you’re taking up knitting. That’s one of the things I like about knitting and crocheting…they’re very mobile. Enjoy! :-)

  2. Congrats on the new digs- looks fab, just like you! Really love the natural light that floods in… 😉
