In order to spruce up my new office space, I wanted modern and clean monitor stands for my computer monitors. I was formerly using two dictionaries to the do the trick and it just wasn't jiving with the high-design look I was going for.

I've been a thrifter for awhile now. I go in and out of stages of obsession- sometimes going months without stepping foot inside a thrift or antique shop, and sometimes daydreaming daily about what my local Salvation Army has on its shelves. It's safe to say that I'm in an obsession phase right now. And I just cannot get enough of the hunt for scavenged treasures. Miller's Antique Mall in Verona, PA is giving me my FIX.
Now, for the disclaimer...if you hate clutter and the TV show Hoarders is your worst nightmare, do NOT click ahead. And definitely don't go into Miller's. Oh man, just please don't. As for my thick-skinned, take-no-prisoners, thrifting friends, read on...

Classic white with walnut accents and pops of colorful Kilim patterns make me swoon. Add a touch of greenery in the form of succulents cradled in a gorgeous handmade hanging planter and I am SOLD. I'll take all of it. No thanks, I don't need a bag, I'll carry it to my car.

I really dig the reclaimed wood table look. I browsed a bit at Crate & Barrel and Restoration Hardware, but couldn't stomach the idea of dishing out upwards of $1,500 for a table. So Rich and I decided we would make our own this past weekend. With the right tools, this is easily a one day project. And for those of you that are drowning in long term home renovations, it's a breath of fresh air to start and finish a project in one day. The best part? It cost under $60 to make.

Scratch that. Let's pick up somewhere else. Life isn't allowing time for baking or cooking these days. I am lucky if I eat something other than cereal for dinner. Planning a wedding, buying a first home, and living in the same city as my family makes me want to do anything but quarantine myself in the kitchen for hours on end perfecting a flognarde. It just ain't happenin.
Part of my wedding planning process has involved trying to figure out what makeup to wear on my wedding day and how to get my skin into great shape before it all goes down. Everyone's skin is different and what works for me may not work for someone else, but here is what I'm loving lately as I delve into the world of beauty products this summer. Now, please dish, what are your summer favorites?
