Friday Faves & Personal Resolutions
Hi there! Happy Friday!
The images are all from my Pinterest page. In the little time I have had off this past week, I have been a pinning machine! I wanted to share these because they stood out to me, in particular, for one reason or another. Gray’s and neutrals with a little sparkle have been catching me eye, except for that one amazing pop of pink.
I’ve been looking for a lot of bedroom and home decor inspiration because my Dad and I will be moving into the new house in a few short weeks. I have been looking for furniture, which is quite the task. I decided on a white, light gray, charcoal, metallic silver and pops of pink color pallet, and it’s so hard to know for sure that everything is going to flow. I don’t want everything to match, but I want it to be mixed and matched perfectly. Makes complete sense, I know.
Needless to say, I haven’t pulled the trigger on anything yet except a paint color. I’m not the best at decision making when there are tons of choices because I am so visual. That’s why I love styling so much. I want to see it all in front of me first, so I can play around with all the options to see what looks and goes the best. But that’s not possible with all of this, so, as fun as it is … it gives me a little anxiety. Truth be told … the only way I felt truly comfortable with saying “omg, yes!” to a paint color was after I searched for the Sherwin Williams color on Pinterest and the search results showed me tons of rooms that were painted that color. Genius idea, if I do say so myself!
So, I have to tell y’all something. Over the next couple months, I won’t be doing styled shoots. I’m not saying they won’t ever return. Because they will, but life is hectic right now. I know myself and, even the thought of styled shoots gives me anxiety because it takes a lot more time and energy than people realize. I wake up at 4AM sometimes before a 12-hour shift to get the blogpost put together because I have been otherwise tied up with other things on my days off. I’m happy to do that, because I absolutely love blogging and styling. But, with this move coming up, I have to spend my free time away from the hospital (I work three 12-hour shifts a week) focusing on creating this new space that is completely mine and reflects me. I need that for my sanity, honestly. I need it to make all of the New Year’s resolutions happen. I want to make big things happen this year, and that will mean that I redirect my FOCUS when it’s needed in order to DO and CREATE and INSPIRE. Ultimately, it’s all for the blog. I want to create a beautiful place for you all to come for inspiration and I want to create a beautiful place for me to generate that inspiration. So, I hope you are excited to go on this journey with me because, as y’all very well know, I am an open book and will be sharing as much as I can of the process.
My last three words are the same. Love. Love Love.
With love and sequins,
“Don’t be afraid of being different.
Be afraid of being just like everybody else.”
