Heavens, I forgot how much I adore this song, The Police, and Sting. Such a delicious tune for on the heels of a holiday weekend. Repeat, repeat.

In continuation of this post, here' s a line from ASOS that I wait for every season- the ASOS Africa line. The line is produced in collaboration with Soko Kenya, a clothing, export workshop that aims to create sustainable and fair employment for marginalized communities in Kenya. The designs are always a little offbeat and a welcoming interpretation of Kenyan style.

How was your weekend? Boy and I had a much needed quiet few days, and we celebrated our 6 months of marriage on Saturday with sushi takeout. It's all downhill from here, right? The overcast skies and light drizzle brought me to the Home Depot for some minor home projects. Along with potting flowers, I decided to spruce up our little hall library. It was looking pretty drab and an afterthought to the rest of our color saturated apartment. Some yellow paint, a fresh houseplant, and reorganizing certainly brightened up this random little corner.

Do you have one of those friends that you just can't NOT give presents to? You see it as your personal challenge to outdo yourself with every holiday?
I do my best to give all my closet friends and family some sort of gift for birthdays and holidays; at the very least, I send a card. But when my friend Katie's birthday rolls around I just love finding gifts for her. I try to find the most obscure gift that everyone else wouldn't understand, but she will surely love it, even if it's just for the thought.

The design of our bathroom has been the farthest from my mind since we moved. I wanted to keep it minimalist, androgynous in décor, and bright for cleanliness. The colors have stayed black and white, but I think it needs a little facelift. I refuse to paint the walls- too many fixtures that I’m bound to break!
Our current shower curtain is the focal point in the room, and it was a cool and necessary find by boy just as we were moving in. But, in the last few weeks, I’ve grown to really not care for it anymore, and apparently when I’ve had one too many, I have diatribes on why every item is listed a few times, but there are only 2 bars of soap- puzzling? Philip loves to bring up this story at dinner parties. Love him.
Here are some of my new design inspirations . . .
