In case you aren’t aware, I’m not a full-time blogger. I make my money being a content developer for a medical software company; M-F 8-5. I used to think that I wanted to be a full-time blogger, but not anymore. First of all, your girl loves stability, which includes receiving a very generous paycheck twice a month post taxes and insurance deductions. However, I do love blogging more now that realized that I prefer to do this as a hobby. Therefore, my day in the life usually feature the same activities everyday, with some tweaks here and there.
Out of pure boredom and my end and maybe natural nosiness on yours, I’m sharing what I typically do on most workdays. Keep reading to read about a recent and very typical workday I had.
For the past 10+ years, I’ve been the girl that usually goes with all white bed linens or soft solid colors. However, I’ve recently started to step put of my comforters comfort zone and explore different colors, prints, and textures. Actually, this is long overdue, because every adult woman should have a fabulous collections of beautiful bedding options.

I have to admit that I’m starting to have a love/hate relationship with self-care. I despise that the word itself is on everyone’s tongue and plastered in every glass magazine or website.

When I first moved into my first place many years ago, I was more concerned on having my own place than I was about having stuff in it. From I recall, I think the only thing I had in my first apartment was my bed, which was super comfy. I think I also had an entertainment center that just gave my age away, because I don’t believe entertainment centers are still a thing. However, like most people, I slowly but surely added other pieces. Within the first 6 months, I got a small tan sofa/chaise hybrid, pub style dining room set, and other pieces. At the time, I thought it was smart to go with basic pieces in contemporary style, which I thought was my style. In hindsight, I was playing it safe for no reason and cringe at those choices.
Don’t get me wrong, I would get compliments on my space all the time, but probably due to it looking like a staged home. I guess all those Saturday morning watching HGTV paid off. Now that I’m older, I realize that I should have been investing staple pieces that I love and design around. So, keep reading to see what 3 items I should’ve invested in for my first place.
