Share Your Space.

From what I’ve observed, people usually love or loathe Ikea. I happen to be on the love end of the spectrum but also lose a little respect for someone whose apartment is ENTIRELY from their catalog.

But… did you know that Ikea has its own website for customers to share their room designs ?! I think this is genius. Its called Share Space.


It’s fun to scroll through and take a small peek into other peoples home  (I happen to really love this – to the point of slowing down as I drive by a home that has their blinds open and lights all on… sorry if that’s creepy. I feel like its partially their fault…). You can see how people have utilized their space and Ikea products used – then save designs that you really like (after creating an account – takes two seconds) and even upload your own submission.

I think my favorite part of this site, though, is their blog. The blog talks about featured photo submissions, new products, trends, before-and-afters (my favorite!) and more!

Want to spruce up your place in 2013? Stop by Ikea’s Share Space for some inspiration.

Dreaming of a Vacation.

Who doesn’t love daydreaming about traveling the world? Fathom is the perfect outlet and fuel to make your travel dreams a reality.


Fathom kind of reminds me of websites like Thrillist and Refinery29 in that it features a variety of topics: guides, shopping, contributor articles, etc. Only this one is for those who “suffer” from wanderlust. Fathom’s about section says:

We created this site for those who tour the world spontaneously and deliberately. Who combine business with pleasure and familiarity with curiosity. Who love new discoveries as well as old classics.”

I especially like their travel guides and shopping suggestions. Check out the site and start planning a few trips in 2013!

Have a great week! Be sure to check back tomorrowthere is something kinda exciting happening for “Tuesday Dudesday”!

Tatted Christmas.

Tattly is a website that sells beautiful temporary tattoos – I’m talking ones that adults would be proud to sport (they definitely were – in my family, at least). I love the inspiration behind the site, too. The founder said she was tired of her young daughter wearing “clip art fake tattoos.” Amen.


So I got my whole family some for Christmas.

There were 8 of us celebrating Christmas down in Florida this year so I ended up getting 4 sets of 8: the Black Set, Nautical Set, Watch Set, and  Premier Set.  My dad was the first one to put one on – and the first spot he picked was his neck! That quickly led to a family of neck tattooed people which, as you can probably tell by my photos below, is hilarious for us. Oh, and the dog got one, too!


(PS… I made this gif at Picasion GIF maker – so easy!)

After applying all our tattoos, we headed to the Madagascar Ice exhibit and then the next day, to  The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. – At both places we definitely got some stares.

tat4My mom’s tattoo was my favorite – it looked so real and good with her short hair! I also loved my diamond knuckles and even got a few inquiries about them being real! Hmm….

These small gifts were definitely a hit among my family members and just made me want a tattoo that much more.  Maybe a tattoo will happen in 2013.  

Hope you had a great Christmas, holidays, new year, everything.

12 Days of Christmas = $$$.

Hope you enjoyed my version of the 12 Days of Christmas! It was way harder than I thought it was going to be.  Sorry about some of the stretching.

My inspiration behind this “series,” if you will, was an article I read on MSN about how much it would cost if your “true love” did give you everything in the song.

It came to a whopping $107,000!

Here’s their breakdown. Click below or here for the whole article.
