those of you who used to frequent my apartment in college are

probably familiar with this snack.  one of my roommate’s mom

introduced us to this recipe, and it immediately became one of

our [not so guilty] pleasures.  in other words; 
we ate it all the damn time.


despite doubling as an art studio, my apartment remains tidy

[usually].  here are five simple organizing/cleaning tools that

will help you keep a neat home:

1.  use a magazine holder for your hair styling tools.  i drilled

mine into the wall next to my dresser, so my tools are hidden,

accessible, and easy to store.  i honestly don’t know how i lived

without this.

2.  yes i am showing you a lint roller.  this bounty lint roller

is what keeps me from having white couch problems.  not only does

it pick up nasty hair/dirt/”who knows what?”, but it lets off a

drier sheet scent that keeps my apartment smellin’ fresh.

3.  paper organizers–cuz this girl’s gotta organize her bills.

4.  boxes from ikea.  they look so nice on the outside, you would

never know that they’re filled with junk.  seriously get these. 

it’s a cheap and easy way to hide clutter.

5.  jars for the kitchen have made baking and cooking hassle free

[and have made my apartment that much cuter]. 

i can’t believe what a difference these simple tricks have made

in maintaining my apartment.  go try them out for yourself and

see what you’ve been missing.


as some of you who follow my twitter/facebook may already know,

this morning i woke up particularly early in order to start

filming my ombre jean tutorial.  and since pure adrenaline just

isn’t enough these days, i began this process by brewing a

caffeinated drink.  “what else is new,” you say?  oh, a lot.  i

made a chai tea latte instead of coffee and soy milk.  yeah

that’s right.  i did it.  it was delicious and gave me a good

amount of energy to [at least attempt to] be productive.  

on an unrelated note, exciting things are happening at spur of

the moments… and i’ll just leave you in suspense until that

post is ready.
