The Kitchen and Bath in the Studio Apartment

Thank you all for the awesome comments you left regarding Sloan’s studio apartment reveal.  I’d love to say it was a super fun project to do and leave it at that but that would be a big fat lie.  Moving things out of Sloan’s dorm and into a second floor walk up in the city while there is a Cubs game going on was not fun.

Pillow Talk (Change Up!)

PILLOW TALK December 23, 2015 This couch probably gets changed up more than anything in my house.  I thought it be fun to document the changes!  Seriously people I have a pillow addiction!  So here's a little pillow talk for the last month of the year decked out for Christmas! 1.  Ikea - The sinnerlig cushion cover is only $6.00.  It is made really good for the price especially how big it is (20 x 20).  But...it's not a lay…
