Blogging is a full time job, even if it’s not your actual FULL TIME job. A lot of time is spent behind the computer working on content and planning outfits and actually writing blog posts. So when I moved into my new place I knew that I wanted an office that was chic and inspiring for when I’m creating content.
Everywhere you look I tried to mix fashion with functionality. With inspiration boards and content calendar, a clothing rack for the latest outfits that need to be shot, and of course a great display for my purses.
Now the hours I spend in here don’t feel like work. But a place I enjoy to go to and be my best creative self!
Rolling rack: Wayfair
Decorating for the holidays can be stressful and expensive! How do you possibly create a beautiful tablescape while still staying on budget for the rest of your holiday shopping?!?? Well, I will let you in on my secret. Goodwill!
Most of you probably think of Goodwill as all second hand items. And while yes, there are some amazing second hand pieces, they also have brand new items that still have the tags on them. Like these adorable plaid plates and copper dipped glasses! I was able to get this ENTIRE tablescape put together for $60! You read that right,$60!
Now what present should I treat myself too with all the money I have saved?!?!? 😉
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! While most of you instantly thought of Christmas, my dedicated OnMilwaukeeans KNEW I was talking about my 12 Days of Giveaways. This years giveaways will be from December 10-21.There is nothing I love more than getting to spoil you all with some of my favorite things, from some of the best local businesses. This year we have gone bigger and better than last year with prizes STARTING in $250 in value and going up from there.
