The five things that have consumed my mind this week:

1. totally smitten with these loafers i’ve spotted online and just can’t seem to get my mind off them. what do you think buy them or take my chances at diy’ing them?

2. taking advantage of the crazy sale at ikea and snagging a new couch and arm chair at 50%. if you follow me on pinterest you’ll know my minor obsession with ikea-hacks; i have plans for this new couch of ours, big big plans! stay tuned.

3. if you havn’t seen it yet, you really must. emma stone skools mr. jimmy fallon in his tonight shows lip syncing battles. seriously she’s badass, anyone that can follow along lyrics to ludacris is okay in my books.

4. putting yourself out there is never easy, bloggers do it on the daily, however i have never really done it like this before. not going to lie my heart skipped a beat when it went live, held my breath for a little while; but it wasn’t until the first of many comments came pouring through did i know it was the right decision. thank you for all your support, you all know who you are. thank you.

5. it’s moments like these that matter most at the end of the day. sofia and my nana have the most amazing bond and it’s incredible to just sit back and watch. even though our visits are not as often as we would love, when they do happen they are memorable.
