Weekend Recap – August 21

I swear, every time I move I swear I’m never doing it again for a long time – and then a year later I end up moving again! I’m in the process of packing up my life and moving 10 minutes away to a new apartment and boy, it is a process. I’m exhausted from packing and taping…and packing and taping. Right now I’m about 50% moved and next weekend is going to be the kitchen, my closet and all the furniture. If you’re moving soon my top tip is start packing earlier than you think you need to – I’m going to be living out of boxes for a few days this week but it’s worth it to just pick up and go when I need to. So the next weekend recap will hopefully be more positive and less stressed! Here’s what else I was up to this weekend…

Weekend Recap - August 21

// It’s the first picture in my new home! I’ve always wanted a little “command central” in my kitchen with all of my utensils, oil cruet, salt bowl, water jugs, etc. Even a butter jar, too!

// I binged on Big Little Lies again this weekend while I was packing, it’s so addicting! Definitely my top-recommended show of summer 2017. If you’re at all into mysteries, psychological thrillers, beautiful beach cinematography, this is the HBO show for you.

// I just finished DIYing my coffee table and let me tell you, I have so many regrets! It was good to practice my drilling, painting and super gluing skills but it was SO much work to transform a cheap Ikea coffee table into a chic farmhouse-inspired piece. DIY post is coming soon!

// I wore this Petite Lace Sleeveless Dress from J.Crew Factory to a bridal shower last weekend and I’m in love – it’s my most favorite LBD ever, hands down.

Cheers to a new week!
