Adam and I are moving in together!
He purchased an apartment last summer from a seller that was moving to France, so we was able to buy it fully furnished. Though she had decorated it beautifully, we now have the delightful task of making it ours. The bedroom will be completely re-done and I've been surrounding myself with an abundance of design inspiration. And as an HGTV junkie and a home store frequenter, this is a dream come true. I love the challenge of making the space gender neutral, and to slowly make the apartment our own. My biggest issue? Where on earth will I put all of my clothes and accessories?!
If you have ANY interior design blogs or websites, or know of any great Vancouver or online stores please let me know! Any tips and tricks are greatly appreciated. I look forward to showing you the before and after progress we make over the next month until I move in May 1st.

When you work for the same clothing company, the odds of showing up to work wearing the same things as someone else is far greater. Today was only one of many days where two of us have shown up in the same thing. It's pretty funny, except that Claudia was being a little camera shy.

The worst part of it all, is that these feelings make me want to shop. I have to use all my will power not to step foot into a store or drive my car to the mall. I've filled carts and emptied carts online. It's the first step of the shopaholic cycle. But see, for the first time in a long time I actually have money and that makes me feel proud. So where is that balance between buying new things and saving some dollars?
Okay, I feel much better. Therapy session over.

My dearest readers,
I've been trying to figure out what to do with these wedges for months. I considered keeping them, but owning the 99 and the 99 tie is a bit much. Then I thought about selling them and making some money, but you know what? I decided instead to give them to one of you! You are all so amazing and supportive. Which is why I believe you should be given free things!
I now give you a chance to win this pair of the Jeffrey Campbell 99 Tie size 8.5 (fits like an 8) in matte black. A $114 USD value! They have never been worn and will come in the original Jeffrey Campbell packaging. Want to enter? Excellent, here's how:
