Little Details

Wednesday, January 22, 2014
Aaron had to go out of town this weekend...and I was originally going to tag along, until Deedee broke her ankle. So, since the little lady can't travel, I stayed home with her this (long) weekend and my mum came up to visit for a couple of days! We spent most of our time just sitting around and talking, but also got out a bit and picked up a few decor items for my bedroom.

One of my favorite Christmas gifts was the Buddha I got from my dad :) It sits next to my bed and is supposed to bring good luck and health, with his hand in the pose of granting a wish.

I picked up an small acrylic bubble lamp from Target for about $30 to give the room a bit more has already come in handy when I'm in bed reading a night.

My mum brought some belated birthday gifts with her - she waited to give them to me in person instead of mailing them for last weekend. One of them was this fabulous book of photographs where dancers are beautifully posed/captured in normal clothing throughout various everyday settings. I love it, and can't wait to get a minute to sit down and really look through it! 

Another gift was a proper white comforter cover for our bed. It looks great, and I picked up a small accent pillow at TJMaxx this weekend, but didn't remember to snap any pictures - will be sure to this week sometime! I'm excited the bedroom is finally starting to come together.

Aaron ordered me an adorable Bip and Bop necklace from Etsy for Christmas, and the letters were a bit wonky, so we exchanged it...and the replacement came yesterday. It is perfect and I'm excited to finally wear it!
As a side note, they get an A++ in customer service - be sure to check them out on Etsy!!

I completely forgot to get a picture with my beautiful mum while she was here with me (!), so instead, I thought I'd post a throw back - one of my favorites of us.
(Holy chubbiness ;) haha

Well, that's it for today...Hope you are all having a great Tuesday Wednesday!
(I am totally thrown off over what day it is after the Monday off)
I am totally exhausted and have class tonight until 9:15 pm, which I can already tell is going to be a struggle - hello Redbull Zero ;)
...but the goal tonight is to be in bed by 10:30!!


  1. Great buys! And such a sweet picture of your mother with you, totally adorable. :)

  2. Love your necklace! We have the god of new beginnings "Ganesha" that was given to us a wedding gift and I try to remember to rub his belly as well daily!!

  3. ooohhh I love that necklace! I have been looking for something like that, I am going to have to check out that store and yay for good customer service!!!

    1. Check them out for sure! They have such cute and unique jewelery and were so helpful and quick to resolve the issue we had :)

  4. What a sweet photo of you and your mom! Love your necklace and that lamp!

  5. How cool is that Buddha? Our favorite Thai restaurant recently remodeled and had Buddhist monks come and bless the space. They entwined all of us with white string and then blessed it and we each took a strand home for good luck. So far it's been working!

  6. Love the lamp and your little necklace is so pretty and dainty! Are you British? Must ask after "mum" and "wonky" ;)

  7. I wish I could do a white comforter in my house cause I really like the clean look of it, but it would just get too filthy with the dogs and stuff =( ...LOVE that necklace!! I want one!

  8. When you have a baby you need to recreate that photo! So sweet that Aaron bought you that necklace. I love thoughful gifts!
