oh-so-very-pretty-glittering-pumpkin-vase-title

There’s something truly wonderful about moving into your first apartment. It gives you a chance to really explore your inner personal style and translate that into your apartment feel. For me, I found that my personal style reflected a lot of how my mom would decorate our home while growing up.

Graduation gift idea: Painted Quote on Canvas

Oh-so-very-pretty-graduation-gift-idea-10 copy

My youngest sister Krisha is graduating in less than a week from university. Time really flies! I’m really excited for her because she has this wonderful opportunity of pursuing her masters degree very shortly after she graduates. And since she’ll be moving away (I know, SO SAD!), we thought it would be perfect to give her something that encourages her both now and her upcoming move.
