Stuff Julia Loves: Fun and Frivolous Tuesday

Happy Tuesday everyone!

I hope everyone at WPPI is learning a lot and hanging out into the wee hours with other photographers! I miss you all! Dance and extra dance to Ke$ha for me :) So while you all are partying it up in Vegas I thought I would bring a little fun and frivolity to the blog! Just a little list of things I’m loving (and repinning) that will hopefully bring a smile to your Tuesday!

This past weekend, Mike and I bought a new mattress (ecofriendly! yay!) and went a little bigger than our old mattress. Which is awesome! Except it means that our old bed frame is obsolete. So right now, we have a box spring and a mattress on the floor. And the funny thing is, we kinda like our new, lower perspective on things! So instead of going out to buy a whole new bed frame, we went looking on Pinterest for some interesting ways to make it work! And we are loving these two ideas!

Next weekend, Mike and I are going to get a ‘lil crafty and DIY ourselves a base and headboard for our new bed. What do you think? We adore the writing on the old farm boards, but were thinking of putting a little chalkboard paint in one corner and then mixing up the message whenever we feel ready for a change! (The pallete bed originally came from Apartment Therapy and the headboard from Sugar and Cloth)

It’s February. And although it has been unseasonably warm here in the Northeast, it’s still a little drab outside. So I need a little cheeriness in my life right now. I think this little beauty of a pillow from Kate Spade could be perfect!

Seriously? What better way to wake up? (I don’t think it’s available online anymore, but I’ve got my eye on the Kate Spade outlets!)

Due to the unseasonably warm weather, I have been able to keep up my running routine all Winter! Which is awesome, because I am NOT a treadmill fan. I love to run but what I really like… is this SIGG water bottle from LuLu Lemon

Is that the truth or what?

And finally, speaking of dessert. I want these mini donuts served with mini cappuccinos. If anyone will bring me a tray of these, I will be your friend FOREVER! Martha Stewart is a genius!

How’s that for a random, fun and frivolous Tuesday post?!?

See you all on Pinterest! :)
