January 2018 in Photos

Finally finally finally got around to keywording and editing my photos from January and I thought it was about time I share!

★ Eric and I went to see the Trains at Northpark, our annual holiday tradition.  It’s fun to look for the little changes each year.

★ I received the most amazing Christimas gift from my friend Robert.  He stitched a Long Dog Designs sampler years ago and gave it to me.  It’s stunning!  I can’t wait to figure out where to hang it.

★ I was thrilled with how our Christmas decorations on the porch turned out this year.  And seeing the greenery with the white lights against our red front door is about my favorite thing ever.

★ Eric and I were so thrilled to be able to attend a special screening of the film Adele and Everything After, a documentary about my high school friend Marty and her service dog Adele (look for a separate post on this soon!)

★ A readalong with a friend of Sarah J. Maas’s new book A Court of Wings and Ruin.  Soooooooo gooooooood!  (A more detailed review coming soon!)

★ Mexican hot chocolate and snuggling on the couch with my Thut

★ Winter nails – Sephora by OPI’s Metro Chic and OPI’s Galapa-ghost

★ Playing mad scientist/kitchen witch and making some kick ass DIYs with essential oils (details and recipes here on my Cozylife blog!)

★ I stumbled across this magazine at the store…looks intriguing and I loved the artwork on the cover.

How was your January?

Some things I’m loving this week…

This Hive vase from West Elm, loved the look in this arrangement by Crystal Palecek of Rue Magazine.

I stumbled across these bkr water bottles.  I love that they are glass rather than plastic, and come in a gorgeous array of colors.  If it will encourage me to drink more water, I’m in!

I’m a big fan of Rachel from Pink Peonies, but when I saw her recent post with this gorgeous Kate Spade outfit I fell in love.

The Lulu Frost Impromptu lips necklace has been on my mind too.  Hard to find and there are tons of copycats, but it really is awesome.  I especially love this look from All You Need is Style.

Anna Rifle Bond knows how to tempt me and spotting the clear lace phone case about did me in.

Gia Coppola

I’m so ecstatic about Domino mag being back (although it almost seems like it was never gone now).  This recent story immediately caught my eye.  I’m always interested in art, and flipping through the photos of Anne Ziegler’s home several of her pieces caught my eye.  The Gia Coppola photographs at once intrigued me, and on further research I found that she also did this piece that was a familiar image used as a blog header for awhile by Cupcakes and Cashmere.

The botanical posters also caught my eye – it seems I’m a sucker for plant and flower illustrations.  It’s an interesting mix of pieces in her home for sure and I love the pops of color against the white backdrop of the space.

What’s on your playlist this week?
