A Birthday Wish List

My 29th birthday is coming up in two weeks so I though I'd celebrate my last official year as a late twenty-something by making a roundup of little items on my wish list.   I keep telling my hubby that 29th birthday is HUGE, but he's not quite convinced! HAHAHA

New Love!

I am in love with these gorgeous strappy wide heel sandals from Zara.  Love the black velvet heel against the skinny gold strap.  I think they will definitely look great with everything! Super happy :) acupofmaiblackandgoldshoes-2 acupofmaiblackandgoldshoes-1 acupofmaiblackandgoldshoes-4 acupofmaiblackandgoldshoes-3

Guest Bedroom Reveal

We had a house guest last week and I finished the room just in time.  Of course, like any room in my house, it will never be finished, but you will agree this room definitely had a big style boost.  I can cross my guest room makeover off my list.

My goal was  to make this room very light, simple and modern.

If you will remember we started with this.  It was just too blah.  A few pieces bought and new paint on the wall and here is the after:

It goes to show that  with a new coat of paint, and buy a few new things you can really make a big difference and give a room a whole new feel.
