Magnificent Furniture

One last post with pictures from Chicago. While I was there I went shopping with my future mother-in-law and future sister-in-law. One of the places we went was this amazing furniture store. Most of the furniture is pretty expensive, but then they have amazing clearance sales (and by amazing I mean $1 frames, $5 pillows, and buy $250 worth of items get $250 free!).

I obviously didn’t buy anything while there (planes, budgets, lack of room, etc.), but here are some of the pieces I was drooling over.

If only such a place existed in NJ…

Sailing through the 70s

I am home visiting my family through the weekend and I don’t have my trusty photographer with me so we will have to live with mirror photos and purple walls for a bit.

I don’t often wear shorts but my families new puppy thinks that skirts are the most fascinating thing in the world. All he wants to do is chew on them all the time. Therefore I had a little excuse to be a extra creative with my outfit today. I think it came out a little bit 70s does Nautical (which happens to be right on trend this summer).

Ruby Slippers

I haven’t made a blog post in nearly two days and it feels like forever. I  must be getting addicted to it! Anyway I am home from college for the weekend. It is my Mom’s Birthday at the end of the month and I wanted to come home before school got too crazy.

I was planning on making an outfit post today because I was wearing an outfit I really like. However I somehow never got around to taking outfit photos and then it got late. So this post is going to be about music instead (a super fun topic in my humble opinion!

I live about an hour from school and I love making new playlists for the drive. Music and cars just go well together. Today’s playlist is entitled Electric Blue Feel:

  • Damn These Vampires – The Mountain Goats
  • One Way Love (Better Off Dead) – E.G. Daily
  • Civilization – Justice
  • All Of The Lights – Kanye West
  • Little Lion Man – Mumford & Sons
  • Song of Our So-Called Friend – Okkervil River
  • With Your Friends (Long Drive) – Skrillex
  • Drops Of Jupiter – Train
  • No Particular Place to Go – Charles Berry
  • Romona Was A Waitress – Paul Dempsey
  • Heartbeats – The Knife
  • Loose Lips – Kimya Dawson
  • 3rd Planet – Modest Mouse
  • Vi Sitter I Ventrilo Och Spelar Dota – Basshunter
  • Baby I’m Yours – Breakbot

As you can tell I have very eclectic music tastes! I just love music in all its forms. It makes everything better. Eventually I will get Mr. Jimby to help me out with the techie stuff so I can actually include the songs in the blog post, but this is all I have for now. If you want to find out more about what music I listen too you can find me on (check it out if you haven’t heard of it – really awesome site).

Off to do more laundry!
