Just popping in to share a few snaps from life lately… and some little updates I’ve been making around the apartment. (And of course a few Aslan photos because duh, I couldn’t resist.) As I’ve mentioned here before it is really important to me that home feel like a cozy, serene place. Living in Manhattan can be pretty crazy and exhausting (not that I’d trade it for anything) so as I decorate I have been trying to be mindful of that, using calm hues like blue + cream, and keeping clutter to a minimum. The blanket above is Aslan’s favorite (and mine too…) from Serena and Lily. I really love the pom pom trim. There’s nothing better than getting home at night to see his little furry face at the door… he is such a sweet little guy.
Jewels everywhere… and a delicious smelling bubble bath from Tocca.
This basket is a recent addition. It comes from a company called Jjangde. Their mission is to employ women and educate children in West Africa. Each basket is handmade using quality local materials by an artisan (ensuring no two baskets are completely alike.) They have an Indiegogo campaign running right now… it’s a really great cause. This is technically their laundry basket but I use mine to stash blankets + magazines.
I thought this was a funny pic… Aslan is very talkative and was mid-meow when I snapped this shot of him.
