i'm gone as the day is fading on white houses

It's officially! I will be moving into my new apartment August 15th! I couldn't be more excited. As of now, I have to keep the shopping trips to HomeGoods at a minimum because I have to start packing up of my stuff soon. I did get this new wall piece last week that I'm absolutely in love with!

If you have been following me for awhile, you saw my vintage shutter door that is a gray distressed color and when I found this I couldn't believe it matched so perfectly! I've decided to store my nail polish in it, but I'm looking to install some small shelves inside so you can see them all! Of course it is from HomeGoods and was around $60.

I can also hang some necklaces from the bottom two hooks! The little perfume bottles at the top and Eiffel Tower and both from an antique store that has a vintage Shabby Chic vendor. They both together cost $15! I can't wait to move in and start decorating again! Once I get all settled in, I will definitely do an apartment blog post. My life has been so hectic lately with my internship, research position, and figuring out when I'm moving etc. I just want to thank you all for commenting on my blog posts and following me on this journey :)

My fourth of July nails were done in a hurry because I had one of the worst weeks I could ever imagine. Someone decided to steal my tires off of my car last Saturday. It's a shame to see how awful certain people can be in the world. I'm a strong believer in karma and know they'll get theirs. I finally got new tires on Friday and now I'm just paranoid it's going to happen again which I shouldn't be, I should feel safe where I live. I'm in the process of moving apartment complexes which I couldn't be more happy about! Enough about all that, on my nails is China Glaze's Mrs. Claus, China Glaze's Little Drummer Boy on my ring finger, and Essie's Set in Stones over it. The China Glaze nail polishes are from two winter's ago I believe. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and let me know what you had on your nails if you painted them!
