DIY Project: Picture Ledges

Pinterest has been my "go-to" to find inspiration in basically everything especially in the Home Decor department. For a while now, I've been pinning my life away and getting ideas of how I want to re-decorate our apartment.  This past weekend, some of my favorite pins were brought to life, thanks to my super handy fiancĂ© who did 98% of the job. HAHA; He got the wood cut, and then put the wood together, etc you know all the hard stuff. (I painted the wood & put the frames on it lolollll) I think WE he did an amazing job.

I originally wanted to just buy the ledges from Target or Ikea but then I read some reviews and a lot were saying that it's not good quality and/or it broke easily.  So then I came across a DIY picture ledge on Pinterest, emailed it to him and he called me right away and said he can do it and well he kept his word, I couldn't be more happier with how they came out. Another reason I wanted him to do it was because of the mesaurements, it was either too big or too small for our wall, so it was definitely a better idea for us to have it done by ourselves.  While he was in his feeling handy-dandy moment, he then decided he wanted to change up our bathroom as well, (he got his ideas of the bathroom from Pinterest as well HA!), we went to target, picked out the baskets and then screwed them to the wall, now he says we need to buy nice looking towels to roll up in the basket lololl.  We're still not done re-decorating but I'm already loving how everything is coming together, just in time for the Holidays !! YAY!

Hello again, November!

They say time flies when you're having fun and boy it did fly by quick....2014 is almost over ! 
November is my birth month and for as long as I can remember, I always celebrate the entire month but this year, I'll take it easy lol, I'll just celebrate on the weekends HA! Definitely looking forward to all the family gatherings for the holidays, I can't wait !

So to kick off my birth month, the fiance and I went out to brunch yesterday after being stuck at home all day Saturday because we were redecorating our apartment.  I decided to take this purse out for a spin.  I am absolutely in love with it, it's just obnoxiously loud & bright, just the way I like it, my fiance begs to differ lol; Since the bag was already loud by itself, I decided to keep everything else simple and paired it with a few of my favorites staples, ripped jeans, booties, floppy hat,  big long scarf and lastly my trusty leather jacket.

All Time Favorite

Fall is definitely my all time favorite season, the crisp air, the leaves changing colors, Starbucks pumpkin spice latte and the fact that I get to wear all of my favorite leather jackets, sweaters and boots. It's not too hot and it's not too cold, it's just perfect, I love it !

Summer/Fall Transition

Sunglasses: YSL // Sleeveless Coat: Missguided // Dress: Thrifted // Shoes: Steve Madden // Necklace: Dannijo // Bag: Annabel Ingall

So here's what I wore the day we got engaged, thank god I always like to "dress-up" when we have our random dates out, like this day which turned out into something really special. I should have expected something was up when he didn't ask me his usual "why are you so dressed-up, we're not going anywhere special?" but it didn't dawn on me at all. That black dress is a jersey soft dress and I absolutely love it, I got it from Buffalo Exchange brand new with tags about two months ago for under 15 bucks and have already worn it about a dozen times it's so comfortable and versatile I wish I had it in every color.
My fiance and I (still so weird saying it but I love it lolololll)
Can't wait to start planning our small wedding for next year and then the big wedding after that, SOOO EXCITED!
