latest inspirations

Hi dears! So I wanted to make a little creative post today because I've been feeling unbelievably inspired lately. I have a sudden urge to change up my room a bit and make it more mature...mostly because...well...I think I'm maturing! And as you mature, your tastes obviously change and build and I find myself just wanting more quality over quantity, which I know is a concept we all hear all the time. I just feel more charged up, wanting even more simplicity than I usually do, and having a passion towards art like I never really have before. I've always been an admirer of art and film photographs (obviously) and Parisian style, but the difference I find in myself now is that I want to act upon it, rather than dream and look on. And I thought what is better way to than to organize my thoughts into some mood boards!


With that said, I do want to change up my room a bit, like I said before. I want to cover my desk in a white marble pattern (I found a Youtube tutorial and you can literally buy marble-like textures and glue it to your desk). I have a gold tray to store all my beauty/fragrance products because my desk has become a little bit of a mess of 'em. I'm going to hang up some wall prints above my bed that I picked out from Etsy (I just need to print them out at Staples and frame them and hang them...uye it will be bit of a process). Some of the prints are fashion inspired and some are just plain ol' nostalgic. And just little touches here and there, like organizing my books and investing in some great fashion books for a future coffee table. Is it weird that coffee table aesthetics really make me excited?
I also added some other things, like that crazy gold mirror...obviously I don't want a mirror that insane, but I've always wanted a gold-framed mirror for when I have a little makeup vanity or to hang against a wall. Again, future goals people.

I've been super obsessed with marble lately and also just really nice, light wood textures. I've also been loving furs (not real ones) and other textures that just really can spice up any space. I've been eyeing some marble book ends so I can actually have my favorite books on my desk without having to lean against something that is unstable. I feel like I'm maturing in the way that I really want to try new things, add something different to make it even more home-y yet maybe sort of trendy.

And, of course, my skincare obsession continues, which is why I had to add them in every set. Not that I still don't absolutely love my St. Ives or Proactiv ;-) But anyway, that's really all! Just wanted to share with you the subtle improvements I want to make within the next 3 months. Right in time for a new, Spring look! It'll just freshen things up a bit. I've been in this apartment for almost a year so I feel like it's only necessary, especially since I haven't changed a thing at all. I'm also thinking about getting a new theme for this blog, since I've had it for way more than a year! Again just something fresh. What do you guys think? What have you been obsessing over?
Xoxo,
Christie
