DIY Black Grid Windows

I have always had white windows and dreamt of black windows, and we finally got them (in our last apartment). I loved them and they were arched and tall and beautiful and everything I ever wanted (except for clean–ha! Window cleaners weren’t working during Covid). I always wanted to add grid to them but didn’t want to block the city view. So, when we moved into this apartment and had white boring windows I thought I’d try a DIY I’ve been wanting to do forever.

Peel & Stick Tile Floor Reno

I have been waiting for this moment for months. If you’ve been following along, Frankie and I rented our new apartment sight unseen. This may be an unpopular opinion but, I’m just over the all white kitchens and the gray vinyl plank floors. There was a time when it was all I wanted. But, my style is ever-changing, as am I. I stumbled upon this flooring and I just knew. I had to have it.

Why we left New York

And now here I am, in Charlotte, NC, in a tree-lined, tucked-back, a mile away from everything kinda neighborhood. And it’s different. And if I’m being honest, it makes me question every single bone in my body that told me to leave in the first place. But I have to be really, really honest with myself and go down that list of reasons to remind myself, so I figured I’d let you guys in on it, too.

Living Room Mood Board

If you’ve been following along on Instagram stories, it’s no secret that we’re moving! We just aren’t exactly sure where. But one thing is for certain–we’ll be out of this apartment by September. As soon as we started talking about moving out, I instantly took to Pinterest and started looking at different rooms I’ve pinned, what I liked about them, and what they all had in common. Here’s the mood board I created for my new living room!

Decisions, decisions

Ahhh…decisions, decisions. Frankie and I are at a big crossroads right now and if I’m being honest, this has been one of the most stressful times of my life.

New York, I love you

When I first moved here I was a complete idiot. I thought I was well-equipped to deal with New York. I thought I knew what to expect because I knew New York. I had felt it in my bones. Her and I had known each other and loved each other in many lifetimes. I was ready. But I had no fucking clue.
