If you were hanging out on Boston's Tremont St. last night you would have seen me and my lovely gentleman friend doing just this. I love that it's a bit silly, a bit dangerous, gets you funny looks and is totally fun. You also get to practice your lady like ankle twist. Now if only I could be riding through a pretty piazza like the one in the picture!

P.S. All of these are under $50!

So what do you guys think? Should I paint? Keep it white and crisp? What color Curtains? My bedding will be blue, but what else should I do? I'm on a budget so I've been trolling to street looking for discarded lovelies to add to my massive room and not my massive debt so far? A cool wall shelf I'm going to paint a fun color. So, what do you think?

from Extending the Table
1 cinnamon stick
3 Tablespoons sugar*
4 cups coffee
Place the sugar and cinnamon stick at the bottom of the coffee pot and brew the coffee.
Once the coffee has brewed, let it steep for 10 minutes on the burner.
Pour and enjoy!
*You can use less sugar or none at all if that’s your thing.
I'm off to make a cup right now. Enjoy!

I don't know about you, but I love fresh flowers. And sadly since my thumb seems to be a rather sallow shade of yellow my potted flowers don't always work out. When I find wild flowers I'm more than happy to pick them, but sadly, living in Boston, this does not happen very often. So this brings me to my penny saving tip...Daisies. Occasionally my loving boyfriend will pick me up flowers at the grocery store(generally this goes with him making brunch, yum) and last time he did this he picked up some simple, pretty, white daisies. Those suckers are going on a month now and they look as gorgeous as day one. Moral of the story? If you love fresh flowers but can't afford to splurge on fancy roses, then daisies are you're prettiest and longest lasting bet. They smell great too!

Rompers, good ones I mean, are hard to come by though. Especially vintage ones. Do you have a pic of yourself in a romper? Send it to me, post it! I want to see what all you lovely ladies are doing with this charming piece of clothing.

So today is my first official trip to Brooklyn to check out apartments. And since I shall have a new apartment this means a new bedroom to decorate(for next to no money). And decorating a new bedroom means new inspiration. This one is lovely, spray paint an old bed-frame a cheery color, find a whimsical comforter with simple white sheets, a few throw pillows and some nice sheer white curtains and you're good to go. My favourite bit though is the collage of photos, I love this technique. It's super simple too, a quick stop at your local thrift store and you're all done(a great way to go green by the way). I also love the A on the wall, since my name does after-all start with A.

Who are your style icons? I feel like everyone has a star, maybe a few, that they identify with. Sometimes its stars of the past, maybe it's just their style or maybe it's their lifestyle or outlook. For me the following three girls played a big part in influencing my style.

I love keds, they're perfect for summer. They're casual, cute, flirty and you can wear them with anything. I just acquired a gorgeous pair of high waisted skinny jeans that i can't wait to wear rolled up with a cute little pair of red keds. The below picture is from a lovely blog entitled Petit Playground.
