Neutral Home Inspiration


Helloooo! Today I am sharing another random home decor mood board! Creating these interior boards has become my new favorite hobby because it's a nice way to put some of my apartment ideas together and envision how I might want to decorate my (tiny) NYC apartment in a couple of months. This one feels really calm and clean, and I just love a neutral palette. 

This Week's Top 10


1. Happy Friday! Wow, I can't believe how productive this week was for me. One of my senior teammates at work was on vacation this week, leaving me to take over many of her responsibilities, and it was a crazy week of learning, skill-strengthening, exposure... all of the good things! I feel like I learned and improved so much and it's a great feeling to head into the weekend with!


2. Speaking of productivity, I finally shared my top tips for boosting my motivation in yesterday's blog post. If you're in a rut, or even just looking for ways to boost your motivation throughout the day, check out the post here and let me know if you implement any of my tips!


3. I shared my dresser reveal on my IG this week!! I am so happy with how it turned out. I am thinking of writing an entire post on the supplies I used and the process... would you be interested in that?

The 6 Things That Got Me Out of My Huge Rut


A couple of weeks ago I was deep in a rut. It was the kind of rut where my motivation was so low that I could barely get myself to leave my house, even if just for a short walk… and you know how much I love my walks. It was also the kind of rut where I couldn’t get myself to write any blog posts or do anything except lay on my couch, go on Tik Tok and eat a bunch of chips, so, hi, I’m back!

This Week's Top 10: Daaaamn


1. Damn. Friday. I have never needed you more!!! I've been living by the words of wisdom above this week because, well, was anyone else's week just... painful?? Actually, I already know that it was because almost 100% of you voted in my IG story poll last night that your week sucked. I am sorry that you had a bad week, but isn't it a little less bad knowing we all had a bad week and now it's over? Some of you told me it's because mercury is in retrograde. Whatever that means, I am not into it.


2. I am going to write an entire blog post sharing my thoughts on how I've felt the past week-ish. I have a lot to say... it's a combination of the sun never being up when I have my first meeting for work every day, hitting my breaking point with Covid (we are coming up on the one year mark, accepting that college is really over is feeling real, I am in my 20s and haven't been to a bar in who knows how long...), and just overall not vibing. I appreciate all of your ideas and messages this week on Instagram as I complained about my mood. I try to keep it positive on there 99% of the time but I just hit a breaking point this week and wanted to be honest with you about how I feel.


3. February is Black History Month and I picked up the following books written by female black authors at the library to read in the coming weeks: Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid, Becoming by Michelle Obama, and Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo. I have heard fabulous things about all of them and I am so excited!!!

Happy February!! Just me, or did January seem like the longest month ever?! I am looking forward to (hopefully) things getting a bit warmer this month, but it's not looking like it so far with all of the snow on the ground. Nonetheless, I am excited for a month full of pink, chocolate, and lovely vibes. 

I hope you love this as much as I do! Please tag me if you make this your desktop or phone wallpaper, it brightens my day more than you know.
