            Halloween is 100 days away; the first day of fall still has two months to go. Yet the past few weeks have brought the first whisperings of spooky, autumnal vibes into stores. I’ve already heard some complaints about how “summer has barely started” or “it isn’t even October”, but—as someone devoted to this holiday—I… Continue reading 5 Reasons to Shop Halloween in Summer

How to Decorate Your TV Stand for Halloween

               This year, instead of decorating all over the Bramford, I focused my efforts on a few easy areas because I knew time was of the essence between everything I had to do. In the past, I’ve posted pictures of my spooky home décor, but for 2021 I thought I’d provide a little guide for… Continue reading How to Decorate Your TV Stand for Halloween

My Newest Obsession: Virtual Apartment Tours

Over the past few months, I’ve spent an inordinate amount of time living vicariously in others’ apartments. They invite me in, show me through each room, detail their purchases and finds, and send me on my way anywhere from 5-40 minutes later. Somehow, in my anxiety over the pending vague-possibility of moving, I’ve latched onto… Continue reading My Newest Obsession: Virtual Apartment Tours

How to Furnish Your First Apartment

            One of the most difficult aspects of moving out on your own or upsizing from a college dorm or shared house to a more “adult” apartment is furnishing that space.

Deck the Halls: Christmas 2020 Home Décor

For almost as long as I can remember, Christmas has been full of decorations. Perhaps not always in the way people have expected – I’ve never had a house with pretty lights – but usually in a way that captures the spirit of the season and makes things feel homey.

That Spooky Aesthetic: Halloween 2019 Home Decor

It’s been a while since I’ve been able to decorate for one of my favorite holidays. In 2018 I’d just moved. In 2017 I was preparing to move. So, officially, the last time I vaguely decorated was in 2016 and I didn’t have half as many supplies as I do now. Thankfully, with a little… Continue reading That Spooky Aesthetic: Halloween 2019 Home Decor

Looking Spoopy: Halloween Home Décor

While Halloween has always been my favorite holiday, my family doesn’t really celebrate beyond the mandatory hand out candy, kids wear costumes, watch Hocus Pocus type of thing. So, no, I’ve never had a haunted house or family costumes or any special traditions. After moving out and in with The Captain, I was determined to… Continue reading Looking Spoopy: Halloween Home Décor

Where We Lay Our Heads: A Room Tour

As I mentioned back in May, The Captain and I moved downstairs into the master bedroom of The Haus which is bigger, better, and gives us our own bathroom. Always up for another chance to redecorate, I planned the layout and we bought some new things to spruce up what we’ve come to realize is… Continue reading Where We Lay Our Heads: A Room Tour
