This Winter has been the season of FUR! I’ve seen so many amazing fur coats, especially on my trip to London, and was totally inspired to pick one up. Not surprisingly, a fur jacket is not a cheap item to purchase, most of them starting around $75 – 100. Could I make one? I wasn’t really confident, to be honest.
For those of you who live in a small space like I do, you know that keeping things organized can be a challenge. Between collecting clothes and adding to my ever growing craft supply, my things started to consume me. I had items stuffed under my bed, shoved into my closet (and the laundry closet… and the coat closet…), and lying all over my desk. It was driving me crazy, and I knew it was time for a change.
If you know Kyle (my boyfriend), you know he loves whiskey. Every time we stop into the liquor store to simply pick up a bottle of wine for dinner or a six pack for a party, he side-shuffles me into the whiskey aisle and spends a good 15 minutes perusing the shelves. He loves it, so I don’t bother to be bothered.
Being on Instagram all the time can seem like an anti-social way of living to someone who just scrolls their feed and likes a few photos here and there. But as a blogger, it’s my job to interact with people online. And do you know what? I’ve actually made some great friends who love the same things that I do!

January was truly a whirlwind month. Coming back from an incredible vacation, I had real life and blog things to catch up on that were piled a mile high on my desk. It’s been fun, but I’m happy to actually get back into working out this week (just in time for those Valentines sweets to kick in!) and just having a little more free time to just watch Top Chef and not be multitasking on something else.
What else happened this month? Oh, I don’t know, a whole lot of political stuff that I truly do not want to talk about. Mostly due to the fact that I am now pretty much 100% off Facebook because of seeing way too much political talk, I just don’t want to add to it. Is it important? Yes. Is this blog the place for it? I personally don’t think so.
For me, January was busy, but I feel like I was re-inspired by taking some time off. I’ve worked on making my Instagram more cohesive and tried to take in what you all suggested in my reader survey. More home decor, you say! Working on it… I also can promise you that at least in September I will most likely be moving and will have plenty of new decor to work on. Don’t worry, nothing crazy is happening, just a move to a new place in the same city.
ALSO – Did you catch the new post series? I’m going to be working on a monthly sewing project with Fabric Wholesale Direct! This is going to keep me more accountable on sewing projects… and really help me to finish ones I really want to have in my closet!
Let’s talk more current events. As in what are you going to see in February:
- Valentine’s galore! I already shared some cute projects with you, but I have even more happening in the background. Though I never really celebrate Valentine’s Day all that much, I love the decor, sweets, and love surrounding it.
- Another sewing project with Fabric Wholesale Direct – the project this month is a big learning game for me!
- Decor tips – I had to fix my closet situation in a big way.
- Remember these guys? They’re back… hopefully can share that post this month if not at the start of March!

Do y’all have the problem of buying bananas and then seeing most of them go immediately to a non-edible shade of brown? Every week I seem to have at least three overripe bananas sitting on my counter, and I’ve gotten sick of the same old recipes. Freeze them for smoothie bowls and nice cream? Sure, but I’ve got a stock of five in there already! Banana bread? Meh, kind of over it at the moment. What’s a girl to do?
When it comes to Valentines Day, Kyle and I usually don’t do anything too crazy. We like to make dinner at home and avoid the crowds, and sometimes he indulges me and lets me pick a high quality chick flick. We do, however, love to go out to the symphony in the winter months, and for those occasions, I like to bring out something a little more special!
