What Can I Fit into 600 Square Feet?

Originally posted on The Real Life:
APARTMENT DREAMING You guys. I have an adorable apartment smack-dab in the heart of Denver’s West Washington Park! The catch? I don’t move in for another 3 months. So in the meantime, brace yourselves for all the home design posts, as I brainstorm on how to decorate the place… Here is the apartment, as seen on Craigslist. (Don’t worry, I’ve scouted it out in person and know all the nooks and crannies, too.) 600 SQUARE FEET IS NOT A LOT …but it’s a good size for the desirable area I’ll be in, and it’s perfect for what I need. As for what I want? Well, because I’m a firm believer in Dreaming Big, here are all the spaces I hope to somehow incorporate into the space, inspired mainly by Pinterest and Apartment Therapy! Photo cred: Lindsay Hill Interiors A MAKESHIFT MUD ROOM There are two small alcoves by the front door, and I’d love to create a small entryway for boots, keys, and purse storage. With a little bench, perhaps a shelf, and…

Adopting a Minimalist Lifestyle.

Minimalist living. Credits: Yoga Journal. Let me ask you a question: Would you be able to live in a home like the one above? No, really. Would you? Or will you think that your home is so threadbare that you need to fill it up with all the knick knacks that your family and friends have bought for you over the years? Or perhaps the oriental ornamental figurines that your grandmother bought for you during her recent trip around Southeast Asia? Or the lacy table runners that your mother-in-law has been knitting for you and might disown you if you didn’t put them up? I’ve been doing a lot of research recently, and writing a lot of articles on minimalism. These works were mostly for home and interior design, specifically as a type of home interior design style. But I have often wondered though, is it possible to achieve a minimalist zen lifestyle? Apparently, it is a growing trend now for people to have the least amount of furniture…

So if you know me you know I’m equally obsessed with home decor and rose gold haha. I’m moving rooms soon and cant wait to do it up.. I’ll more than likely document the process on snapchat haha. So i recently received and bought home decor stuff , so i thought why not share… Soo i LOVE candles , who doesn’t??? I ran out of candles so I recently bought two of these massive ones. I had to buy two because they smell absolutely amazing and i’m pretty sure I’ll have them for a while . There not really strong smelling that can be to overwhelming either. I also got 2 of these cute little candles and Yankee candle burner off a friend. They all smell great and can’t wait to use them! So while shopping yesterday i spotted these jars. I have no idea what I’ll use them for yet but i had to get them , hello look at them haha. I’m sure I’ll find a purpose for them…

Have the holidays become too stressful?

The holiday season is in full gear. As we have already passed Halloween, and Thanksgiving. Christmas is just around the corner. And I have to say that I’m still slightly in disbelief at how quickly its come, yet again. As I get older, I’ve realized something. Time speeds by, each year it gets quicker and quicker. Everything becomes stressful and timed, and we make it more commercial then spiritual and magical like it should be. I remember when I was a kid, I used to get so excited when Christmas was near. It was my favorite time of year. I remember decorating the tree with my family and playing Christmas songs as early as October, sometimes even in the summer time because I was just so infatuated. Now it seems as though no one has time for anything anymore. No time to decorate, or shop, or be festive. Everything is like warp speed and before we even get to Thanksgiving they are already shoving Christmas down our throats. Stores commercialize…

DIY: Updating Plastic Bins

Originally posted on The HardKnock Diaries:
Last week, I was in the process of moving out of my parent’s home for the first time. With the lack of space in my dorm, I needed drawer space that came on wheels and was easily accessible. To combat my problems, I decided to purchase plastic bins to hold all of my necessities. The only problem was the terribly ugly appearance and lack of privacy of the bins. Watch me transform my bins from… This: To This: What You’ll Need: Plastic bins or drawers Double Sided Tape (or an adhesive) Scissors Scrapbook Paper ( wrapping paper or liner can also be used) Steps: 1.) Measure your scrapbook paper against your plastic bins. I was lazy with this step, but you can certainly use a ruler if you like. 2.) Once, your paper is measured, put medium sized tape pieces along the four corners of the scrapbook paper. I have seen others actually cut a slit where the handle should go, but again I am lazy and this covering…
