Here’s some visual inspiration I shared on my Pinterest this week! I actually love Pinterest a lot and use it almost every day, but I have no idea how to use it from a blogging standpoint! I love curating my boards and adding things that inspire me — especially in interior design. My dream is to be a home & lifestyle writer someday, and it’s extremely obvious when you look at what I pin.
With what I shared above, I just really loved the particular clean, yet cozy vibe of everything. There’s an injection of a warm fall atmosphere without compromising visual appeal. I’m a sucker for variations in warm brown tones (obviously), and the corduroy in the first photo just really stood out to me, along with the intricate frames and variation in textures throughout the little moodboard I created here.
I’ve been drooling recently over James Wilson‘s work — line drawings of (dominantly) feminine bodies that also happen to be photographed really well for James’ Instagram. I have my eye on buying an original from him to add to my gallery wall in my living room. Definitely check him out and support the artist if you can.
As you probably saw on my Instagram this weekend, I spent my Saturday eating these pumpkin pancakes in bed (shoutout to Trader Joe’s for making gluten-free pumpkin pancake mix so my wheat-free roommate can enjoy some). I topped them with one of my favorite snacks that was actually introduced to me by one of my friends when I was in middle school — apples pan-cooked with balsamic vinegar and cinnamon. Just add a couple tablespoons of balsamic and a tablespoon of cinnamon to a pan with sliced apples and cook for a minute or so. Such a delicious fall treat, and it plays into my tendency to eat primarily vegan/vegetarian at home.
I’ve been erratic about what I’ve been listening to lately; one minute I am listening to the crooning melodrama of The Smiths or Amy Winehouse, and then the next second I’m listening to catchier classics that I can never seem to let go of (re: Ben Folds and Girls). Overall, there’s a haze of nostalgia and escapism in the back of my mind that I’m trying to break. I am constantly listening to the same music and rarely branch out anymore. I’m not sure if discovering new music has changed or if I have.
Okay, that’s all I have for you! Until next Monday. xx
