I love the look and functionality of a vintage french wine drying rack. I bought a small reproduction of one and display some cute coffee mugs from Anthropologie. I really would like to upgrade to a large vintage one, which there just happens to be one on sale at One Kings Lane. However, I just don't think I have the space for one that size in the loft. I think it would also be really cool to display pint glasses since I have quite a large collection from a local bar when they have their pint night. There are endless ideas though of what you can do with these pieces in your home. Here are just a few of my favorite designs and pictures.

So here it is y'all, pictures of the new couch in the livingroom. I still can't over what a steal this couch was and how it matches the chairs perfectly. I would love once I get a house to pair this couch with some bold color chairs, like here, here, and here. This would mean that the chairs can reunite with the old couch in a formal sitting room. Did I mention also how comfortable this couch is and I love that it has deep seating.

On Saturday my mother hosted a lovely brunch for some of my bridesmaids before we headed out to the Bridal Extravaganza. This event is a soon-to-be-brides dream and nightmare. There are hundreds upon hundreds of vendors from cake decorators, photography, djs, dresses, venues, anything relating to weddings. We survived the event though and probably walked a few miles, but I got a few ideas and leads on some of the items on my list.
Instead of continuing on the joys and pains of the Bridal Extravaganza, I thought I would share some photos of the amazing brunch my mom put together for us girls.
What is a brunch without mimosas.

I absolutely have an obsession with bags. It can be clutches, purses, suitcases, or wallets I love them all. For the longest time it was just bags (messengers and backpacks) and luggage, but as I got older and more feminine the clutches and purses started to interest me more. I still though just love looking and purchasing all things bags. My friends and family think I am crazy, but I tell them everyone has there thing, whether it is shoes, art, etc we all got one....or two (I do love my books as well though, if you couldn't tell from the bookshelves in the loft). However, if there is a more pricier bag I absolutely adore I will try to wait until it goes on sale or try to apply a coupon/discount code. That is what I have done the majority of the time. So I thought today I would share some of my favorite bags that I have purchased over the years.
The Louis Vuitton Speedy bag was my very first really expensive accessory purchase. I bought it last year after rewarding myself for all the time I spend away from home working. This is a classic and solid piece that will stay in style forever. I hope if I ever have a little girl to pass this down to her.

I have been on cloud nine lately. I will admit though that I still don't have a date planned for the wedding and that is a little concerning since a lot of engagements happen over the holidays; therefore, a lot of women are in planning mode. So instead of stressing out...already, I decided to share a few pretty things that I love and found on pinterest.

Hello y'all! I am in the very very beginning stages of planning a wedding. I have even purchased a book "Planning a Wedding for Dummies," I know it is sad. I am just trying to wrap my brain around this process and what all it involves...which is a lot. One of the very first things Amos and I have done is to create our guest list, which is still in the initial phases, to get an idea how big of a wedding we will most likely have. It is amazing how quickly the list adds up.
Another step is some of my bridesmaids and I are attending a huge event downtown called the Bridal Extravaganza next Saturday. This will be a great event to attend to see what all there is to offer in the Houston area, from photographers to wedding venues. I hope to continue to keep y'all updated through this process.
Hope y'all have a lovely weekend!

Hello y'all. I thought I would share some more pictures of the progress my cousin Amber is making on her new house. You can see before and after pictures of her bathroom here. It is still so crazy to think that this girl is only 21 years old and has purchased a home and done so much to it already. Not to mention that she does it while going to school, working, and running her own photography business, seen here. All I can say is that I am so impressed and proud. I hope y'all enjoy the pictures.

Happy New Year Y'all!! I hope everyone had a great night and was able to reflect back on their experiences in 2013 and get ready for the new year. I haven't made my list of resolutions yet, I usually make it a day or two after New Year's day to really enjoy the last few minutes of another year gone by and reflect. This year though I will be planning a wedding, traveling to new countries for work, and trying to balance all of my activities without letting them pass by too quickly and enjoy them in the moment.
For New Year's Eve we had a small get together at our place, which was kind of last minute, but I didn't mind because it was nice not having to drive anywhere and I love to host. I thought I would share a few pictures of the spread. It contained different cheeses and meats, cookies, dips, crackers, and of course champagne. I hope y'all enjoy the pictures and have a great year.
