I'm BACK and with a vengeance

Happy weekend lovelies! I am so sorry for the lack of posting, I have been INSANELY busy with moving to Michigan and starting a new job! Not only did E (and I emphasis on the E part) drive straight through the night while I slept. I moved from 80 degree weather to 40 degree weather, within 201 hours! eek! So on top of flying to Chicago for my first week of work, I managed to get sick, and when I say sick I mean like HARDCORE sick! Bedridden for 3 days sick! So luckily I am felling better today! Well enough to share some of my recent conquests! Well in the midst of unpacking from the move and repacking for Chicago, E and I managed to find the perfect little apartment downtown! :) Here are a few pics.

street view of our building! 

entrance with exposed Iron.

The scariest elevator I have EVER seen! 

anddd my princess doorknobs! :) Gotta have a little GLAM.

It's a studio so it looks small but it's perfect size. We are going to put up some faux walls to create a bedroom and just VAMP it up! Can't wait to show you the final product! 

The town we chose is so perfect! It's a younger crowd (25-35) and it's an art/fashion district. My sisters and I were cruising the streets and a random fashion show started! 
Anna & Alexa :) The Blonde Army as E calls us.

I think it was a recycled fashion show, all of the outfits were made of recyclable items (newspaper, magazines, trash bags... and they actually looked really chic!) 

I promise I will be posting more!!! Hope all of you are having a wonderful Sunday!!!
