Forever No More & Do You Remember?

Hello All,
I have been absent for a real reason other than I took a couple days off work and decided not to do anything...and by anything, I mean anything productive.  I owe a couple posts on those days...full of blissful nothing-ness...but first let me fill you in on what I have been doing tonight :)

Watching youtube videos!  Make-up tutorials and music videos to be exact!  I feel like a complete teeny bopper!  Yey!

So here are tonight's epiphany's (thanks to youtube)....

1) I don't think I could ever forgive C.Brown (I don't even want to write his full name) for what he did to Rihanna.  Yes, I was in love with "Forever", really liked the kid...but after what he did, I just can't get over it.  I can't be happy when I hear his songs because I don't trust him.  I don't know, I just can't.  Like once you've been there you can't go back to how it use to be.  I can't see him as the happy loving guy I use to see him as.

So being the teeny bopper I am!  Take that C.Brown! (I give you I just went from teenage girl to 7 year old!)

And now to #2!

2) I have named Jay Sean your replacement! 

His song "Do You Remember" reminds me of CB, so there!  That will be my new before "the situation" CB.  I don't like that his shirt says "rage", but like any dreamy teenage girl...let's ignore that for now.  Jay Sean also reminds me of Daddy I am all over the place.  Well, yes, he reminds me of a young humble Daddy Yankee (if there was ever one).

Anywhoooo, Enjoy this video.  Kisses!

(Enjoy my exquisite taste in jams!)

More Blues

Check out these blue couches....heavenly.

I just love the back pillows!

How about this silky turquoise!  I love the contrast with the white chair!

My version:  Ikea of course!

I can't do a price comparison, but I am prety sure it doesn't even compare!

Nice Little Numbers

I work with numbers.

I heart Excel.

I heart calculators.

Specially retro ones (or retro wannabe, like this Urban Outfitters one)

The Blues

Check out these blues!

How amazing is this dresser?!

Love this color, sorta like a soft Tiffany color?  How would that look with the black iron bed?

Saw this mirror at Urban Outfitters and thought of Idalia?  So what do you think?
Should we start heading to the thrift stores in search of one?

I really like the blue and yellow combination.  They make me happy.

New Inspiration Picture

This picture is driving me C.R.A.Z.Y!

I first saw it on Make Under My Life months ago, then on Oh Brooke, then on Urban Sardines, then on Ish and Chi.  {Yes, I have a blog addiction} I have named it my new design inspiration picture!  So what does that mean???  Well, that I will use it to style my new place.  So let's see how it goes.

So for the last couple of days I have been on Craigslist, trying to find pieces.  So far, I've found a low table that could turn into that table, a chandelier that I could spray paint...actually I am all over the place so let me get my act together and then I'll share my plans.

More on the chandelier, so since I am renting I can't really change the light fixture so I thought of a faux chandelier, but they are just as my next idea is to get one from craigslist, do some spray paint magic and just hang it from the ceiling.  You know, just with a hook, like a plant.  So what if it won't turn on, I already have enough light.

Sound crazy?...yes I am crazy and serious.  I also found this paper (not wall paper, but regular paper) for the wall panel.

But now I am thinking that stenciling would be less expensive.

Also, check out this fan chandelier hybrid.

That's a new thought.  Ahh I am going crazy with all these thoughts!

The Move + Acceptance

Hello!  I am back.  I took a little time off to settle into my new studio.  So far so good.

I have a couple posts cooking, but first lets start with the move.

I am now on the 3rd floor!

On Sunday (leave it to me to wait until  the last day of a long weekend) I asked my family to help me move.  By family I mean my mom, stepdad and uncle.  Even though I was only moving to the 3rd floor I was still going to need some man power!
 (Special thanks to all my gfs that contacted me to help, really thanks!)

I am kinda set up...for now. 

So do you remember my "dining room" posts (one and two)....well I finally accepted that I do not have the space for a dinning small as my cute little table is.  I have a counter so I will get some stools instead.  So I let go of the idea and sent it back home with my family.  I promised myself that one day I would give myself a dream dinning room/eating nook.

Ok ... so where are the pics?....well my studio was clean...WAS, but I started to clean my closet and started throwing clothes on the floor...because how else can you clean the closet?  Anyways, pictures to come soon.

In the mean time, I now get to ride this elevator.  Since I am only the 3rd floor I usually take the stairs.  I take the elevator when I want to fantasize about living a fabulous life a la Carrie in an old vintage building in New York... yea I am weird, so?

Old School Elevator

Also, we got a new intercom...and guess what?  I am NOT in it.  I need to call someone to fix that!
