Growing up I never got to shop at Abercrombie. My mom said it was way too expensive. When I was old enough to shop by myself, I would scour Abercrombie to find the best deal in order to get my hands on that beloved moose logo. No matter how bad the color of those short sleeve polos were (bright yellow was always on sale) I needed it and you bet that collar had to be popped whenever I wore it. Fast forward 10 years later, not looking for a polo or the stitched moose, just a good deal. Found these overalls, but ultimately paid the price because I left with a headache from the signature scent and blaring music.

TGIT (Thursday is the new Friday)!
I wore this dress to a lunch buffet in Vegas. My stomach started to protrude and yet, I couldn’t have been more comfortable. “What a great maternity dress”, I thought! As I was sitting there belly out, eating sushi and sipping on a bloody mary I didn’t want the other patrons to think I was pregnant. I immediately sucked it and pushed my plate(s) away. After two minutes, I got up to take a peek at the dessert bar. I saw the mini fruit tarts and said, f-it. It was my last day in Sin City, I was going out with a bang and a few extra pounds.

Back in October we took a peek into my bedroom/office, but what you didn’t see was the actual bed. That’s because it’s located eight feet above the floor on stilts. That’s right, I sleep in an adult bunk bed. With angled walls and my massive amounts of stuff, I needed a way to maximize the small bedroom. Fortunately, this apartment has high ceilings, meaning I’m not bonking my head when I wake up from a nightmare.
I had to nix the fancy-oversized-throw-pillows merely for the lack of space up there. To create a less claustrophobic feel, I wanted bright and airy bedding that would open up the room for an inviting, fresh vibe. I absolutely love the feel of these Crane & Canopy sheets – they honestly feel like a blanky from my childhood.
The stitching towards the bottom of the duvet adds texture without overpowering the entire loft. I love ALL white, but wanted to lose the hotel feel by going with a subtle grey pattern.
My favorite part about Crane & Canopy (besides the reasonable prices) is that a portion of the proceeds are donated to A Safe Night’s Sleep, which benefits women and children affected by domestic violence.
James Franco approved.
Now that you’ve seen my bedroom, office and living room (will need to update this one – lots of changes!), it’s time to tackle the kitchen. Yikes!
After living in San Francisco for almost five years now, I’ve gained a greater appreciation for walking. When I used to live in the ‘burbs, driving was a part of everyday life – today, I can probably go a full week without hopping into a car. While I enjoy exploring the City on foot, I know James LOVES it so it’s a great excuse for Tyler and I to get out of the house. Since it’s Summer everywhere outside of San Francisco, we’ve been taking short weekend trips across the bridge where I’m usually sporting leggings and sneakers. Although you won’t find me rock climbing or mountain biking, I dare you to challenge me in a speed walking contest >_<
