In the world of Save. Spend. Splurge.: 11 of the most amazing closets
I am now obsessed with watching Architectural Digest (AD) videos, and finally came across my favourite video of all – 11 of the most stylish closets. I LOVE CLOSET BINGEING. I just like seeing what people buy, why they buy it, the history, the story, the colours, styling.. it’s everything for me.
My other favourite closet of all-time so far, has to be Heart Evangelista’s, only because you can see how much she (like me), truly loves style and fashion. She doesn’t collect items just for the sake of having all the colours and sizes. She has items with a story, with a reason… this is what I love.
I did not know.. that Amazon sold couches. Because this Caramel leather one looks fantastic. Comfortable, tufted, gorgeous leather, and extremely stylish. Colour me impressed. I am still set on buying this La-Z-Boy Finley manual reclining chair as my office chair / chill spot. I love the sleekness, size, and that it can recline back so I can chill while I watch videos.

Polyester dress is at 200 years. TWO HUNDRED. I am a huge fan of resale, and second hand shopping, so if a dress is still in wearable condition, and/or can be mended, I am ALL FOR IT.
4. Green green green
I am so excited someone turned me onto looking into Teracycle.

5. “IT IS MINE, I CAN DO WITH IT AS I WISH”
I was blown away by the speech by Chimamanda at the Humboldt Forum. It was just simply perfection. I highly recommend watching her speech on colonialism, history, and discrimination inherent in the treasures of the world.
I am starting to gather a little collection of fun graphic and saying tees, and nothing grabs my attention more than a fabulous shirt that promotes recycling like this Charlie Brown one. I don’t like graphic tees that invite people to make lewd comments (anything with “kiss”, “love”..), or anything that is too on the nose like “brunette”, “blonde”, etc.
What I like are graphic tees with interest and nothing too controversial that will also make strangers glare at me. I don’t need those toxic vibes. Or anything to do with drinking like this one that I sort of like, but wish it said “tea” instead of champagne, as I don’t drink and kind of don’t love that drinking culture has become an accepted thing to talk about how you need wine, or to unwind you need alcohol.
7. Fancy FIVE
These are some interesting 5-ingredient recipes that would be easy to make and yummy to eat. I like cooking but not when it becomes overwhelmingly difficult or complicated. I don’t want to spend a lot of time, or money, or buy ingredients and then only use it for ONE meal. I want it easy-ish, and healthy, but most of all YUMMY.
This 5-ingredient sheet pan chicken fajita looks delicious. Throw it all onto one pan, then wrap it in a fajita, add avocado, julienned vegetables, some lime, and you’re done.
8. CRYSTAL CLEAR
My friend got Little Bun this crystal growing set. I was hesitant at first “is it actually going to work”, but it is kind of cool!! It takes a little adult help to boil the water, and then take over the mixing when your child realizes 5 minutes of stirring is more like 10, and his little arm gets tired trying to melt the crystals into the water. The crystal grew pretty quickly as well. Highly recommended and fun for all kids.
