Happy October!

Hello friends, and Happy first day of October! I know the fall season technically started a few days ago, but the month of October has always signified that Fall has officially arrived. Or at least in my book. With pumpkin flavored EVERYTHING being EVERYWHERE, football, the onset of boots and flannel, and of course marching band season in full swing this is my absolute favorite time of the year. And maybe because it's my birthday month ;).  

With this new season I'm finding new inspiration, and the sense of a new beginning. The last few months have been very trying, and big changes have been made.  I don't post often (which is one task I want to improve in), and in all honesty I've been slacking a lot with blogging and creativity. Long story short, TA and I moved...to Greenville, North Carolina! Things got really rough during the summer, and it was time for a change of scenery and better opportunities. So far we've settled in quite nicely, but sadly we had to leave the majority of our belongings in storage back in Kentucky. Which means I'm not really able to decorate for Fall, and that's one of the biggest things I look most forward to in October. It really makes me sad (and maybe a smidge jealous) to see all of my friends and fellow bloggers "Fall-ify" their spaces, and I'm not really able to decorate my current living space since it's not really my space. However, I have a few ideas up my sleeve to satisfy my fall decorating craving which will hold me over until TA and I have our own space (which I'm praying is soon)! 

I can't wait see these colors!!

As far as my creativity flow goes (hey that rhymed!) it's been a constant battle between all of the ideas I have, but not able to act on them due to lack of space (living situation and storage). This probably makes my wallet sing, and really I can mold these ideas into exactly what I envision. Patience is not my strongest virtue, but dang it I'm trying!

In closing I'm really glad and happy I wrote this post. I've missed writing, and connecting with all 10 of my readers (ha!).  Blogging has always been a hobby, but the more and more I dwell on it I really would like to hopefully one day have it be my business. As they say dream big! I hope you all are having a fantastic day, and thank you for reading!

P.S. For those of you still wishing it was summer, here was my view from our second day back in NC. I think I may get used to seeing this more often!


Getaway Goodies

Hello friends!!! Very long time, no see!! I apologize for the hiatus. It's super difficult to blog when one's laptop is out of commission, and the only way to do anything is strictly from my iPhone (including pics). And I'm not entirely sure if my laptop can be saved...I'm hoping to find out this week. Fingers crossed!!

If you can tell from the title I'm having a girls weekend with a friend in Ohio. This has been a godsend. To be able to getaway, and spend time with a great friend is fantastic. To make it better we're staying next to a HUGE shopping district, and the icing on the cake is one of my most favorite places...

If you're a follower on IG then you already know I had found my happy place. It truly makes me smile when I walk in the door, and see the greatness of all things organized. 

I mean how can you not love this?! It's colorful, neatly arranged, and organized. Pretty sure it's the closest thing to Heaven...maybe.

I spent over an hour in the store wandering aimlessly, and came out doing minor damage. Like less than $25 minor damage...seriously.

(Don't mind the backdrop. Gotta love semi-tacky hotel furniture).

There's been minor organizing projects that I've had on my mind for a while, and when I was told there is a TCS I made my list of items to finish them up. Most are to corral small items like loose nails/screws in my tool set, paper clips/rubber bands, and appliance manuals, take-out menus, and magazines. 

Still debating on doing a follow-up post with my goodies. I can't wait to get home, and use them. Why does organizing seem so therapeutic and exciting? Or is it just me?

Until next time friends, stay prudent!!

Tidbits of Decor

Happy Saturday my friends! Yes I'm posting on a weekend for once! It's a quiet, rainy day here in Kentucky, and I figured I'd share some small decor updates I've done around the apartment. It's nice to change things up especially now that Spring is so close!! If you already follow me on Instagram you don't have to read this post since I'm basically recapping the last few weeks. For those of you who don't I hope you enjoy!

I have a little vignette above the bed in the master bedroom, and for the longest time there were two pieces. The Libra in me was not happy with the imbalance of it, and I couldn't find a piece to even it out. After some switching around I finally have a balanced vignette! 

I've added some new pieces to spruce up the living room aka the bookshelf  LoL. It never fails that when I shop for decor it ends up being on the bookshelf. I snagged this ceramic white apple, a new candle (which as of today is all burned out), and a lovely blue frame with an inspirational quote. Can never go wrong with additions like these!

Last weekend I made over an office supply caddy with some spray paint and a gold paint pen. Obviously I didn't spray the inside (which is a purple/magenta color), but I really like the overall look of it!
It now lives in top of my craft supply table, and I'm loving the pops of color!

Speaking of pops of color...see that orange Coach box?

It now corrals all of my scrapbook papers, and extra paint chips. It may not be the best organization method, but it's a quick fix. I've been holding on to this box for over a year. It's too pretty to throw away, and wanted to reuse it somehow. Problem solved!

Hope you enjoyed the post, and thanks for stopping by! Have a fantastic weekend, and see you all soon!
