Hi loves! It’s been a whirlwind couple of months, and I wanted to start off fresh by telling you what’s been going on in our lives. As you may know, I was finishing up my PhD in biomedical engineering in December. The two months leading up to my defense presentation were very chaotic – not only was I working long hours to accomplish all the experiments I needed, plus writing the actual thesis document, but my husband and I were also organizing a move to the metro DC area. Though we weren’t necessarily looking to make a big move, a series of serendipitous events led us to decide to go for it. Fast forward three months and we have both graduated with our degrees (Juan got his Masters in CS!), relocated to the metro DC area with our precious cats, and (mostly) set up our new place which we absolutely love. We have either started, or will be starting new jobs, and overall, like it here so far!
When we first got here we were so busy with projects around our home, and one of the biggest projects was building out my office/walk-in closet. We had quite a small bedroom to spare and decided that the best use of the room was to turn it into a space where I could have all my favorite things around me and be inspired to create content for this blog! It was a labor of love and I am so thankful and impressed by Juan’s design and carpentry skills. I’m still putting some finishing touches on it, but here’s a sneak peek!
The newest thing on the blog is my shop page (link located in the upper right corner). Here, I’m collecting all my favorite recent finds. All these items I own myself (or have something very similar) and love. You’ll see things from Amazon (including a delicate rose gold bracelet and moto leggings at under $30 price points), as well as staple clothing items (like my green field jacket), sale pieces that are just too good not to share, and more! I will update this section regularly and I hope it’ll be a good resource for you if you are looking for gifts, or wanting to add some new pieces to your wardrobe.
Cheers to new beginnings! Thank you so much for reading and stopping by! xo
