The Fall Desserts I’d Like to Make…

…but won’t because I have nightmares about finding dead mice all over my kitchen. Gah. I need to just grow up and stop being a frustrated wuss about this, right? I’m working on fixing the problem, but in the meantime I need to just get over it and let the pumpkin and apple smells take me over. I’m trying. Really. So, if I wasn’t totally turned off by baking at home, here are a few things that I’d particularly like to make for you.

Cupcakes for Breakfast: a sweet taste of fall

pecan pie bars | snickerdoodle pumpkin ice cream sandwiches | caramelized apple tart | stacked applesauce cake with cinnamon whipped cream | mini apple pies | apple beignets with caramel sauce | brown butter pumpkin cupcakes with salted caramel frosting

Hit the Floor

Ah, the rug: the foundation of any great (or poor) room design. An new area rug is just one of the many accents I’d really like to change up in the “living room” of my studio apartment. There are so many great designs out there though and I’m having trouble/so much fun picking just one style. I could go bright and bold or with a more muted pattern. Tell me, which one is your favorite?

A Place for Everything

Hello friends. Is it only Tuesday still? Just counting down the days until I’m on vacation for a week on Nantucket Island….

Anyway, I’ve been searching for a perfect bookcase/storage unit for my studio apartment for some time now. I’ve had the idea of what I’ve wanted for a while, but because of price and time and other (lame) factors, I just haven’t bought one yet. I need it mostly for storage, and because the shelves I have now are mismatched and from freshman year of college. Everything else in my apartment has grown up since I’ve graduated, so it’s time my shelving does too! I need a stylish place for all of my books, journals, magazines, champagne glasses, photos and other fun trickets. Plus all of these fabulous Glitter Guide “Style at Home” segments are making me antsy to do some extra decorating, just in case they show up at my door with a camera.  :)

Of course, now that I’m about to leave for vacation I’m finally ready to commit to one…I’m almost positive! So until I can make the trip to the store, put it all together, and style it with all of my favorite things, let’s take a look at of some exceptionally inspiring bookshelves and collections…
