Photo Diary: Christmas Decorations

Photo Diary: Christmas Decorations

It's Christmas time! And we've decorated my mom's townhouse with all the decorations from snowman to Christmas tree to centerpiece on the table. This is my mom's first time having a "pretty" tree as she puts it. Meaning, not putting up all the ornaments my sister and I made over the years when we were kids. Which caused my sister, Lucy, to get frustrated since she wasn't excepting it. Especially considering this is also the first year my mom put up a fake tree not a real Fraiser tree. And I sided with my mom with the fake tree with the non-childhood ornamenets. We decided to go with a gold and red theme for the tree as my mom found ornaments of that color pattern that she loved. Plus it's also the colors of my sister's favorite hockey team, so once I pointed that out she was happier with the tree. I personally would love to have my blue and bronze ornaments with white woodland creatures, but I'm apparently the only one in our family that loves that. Hopefully next year I can bring that back. But for the meantime, I'm quite happy with this tree. So here is a little photo diary of our Christmas decorations.…

Christmas Home Decor Ideas

So I thought I would share a few things I would love to do if decorating the house was left up to me. And hopefully next year, I'll have a place of my own again where I can implement these around the house. Of course since I'm not able to do them myself, I will be sharing some of my favorite blog posts that I found on Pinterest for these decoration ideas. I also really love rustic or industrial feel so most of these will fall into this category/style.…

Dreaming of an Industrial/Rustic Living Room

Dreaming of an Industrial/Rustic Living Room

One thing when I move in April that I'm going to try my hardest to save up for to achieve is creating an apartment that actually looks like something out of an HGTV show or magazine. I know I won't be able to do it right away but I'm tried of having a "college" like place. And by that I mean a bunch of random things thrown together that looks more like a place I crash rather than a place I live in. So the first room I want to tackle in the new place is the living room as this will also double as my study most likely. So throughout the house I want to have a industrial yet rustic feel.…
