New York City, you're so pretty.

"Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile."

In all honesty, I though that quote was a little cheesy, until I saw that William Cullen Bryant said it. Then I was all in. Bryant Park, anyone? Yeah, that's him.

Anyway, I got a brand new, fancy camera, and Steve and I went on a walk down the Lakeshore Path here in Madison to test it out. Here's the result:


The final installment of me showing off my apartment is on pause. It is going to be my room, but I haven't been able to get any decent photographs of it because:

1. One of my clothing racks in the living room broke, so I'm hanging clothes all over the place until the replacement arrives.
2. I had things everywhere in preparation for NYC.
3. I now have things everywhere because I haven't had a chance to unpack from NYC.

So there. I'm moving on now.

Apartment Decor! Part 3

My kitchen and bathroom are nothing spectacular, but still look cute; it's all in the details, people.

In the kitchen, I have cute, blue cafe (how do you do an accent mark on Blogger?!) curtains against the window which perfectly frame my wonderful little frog.

He carries tootsie rolls.

Lady Gaga also resides in my kitchen. I found this awesome poster of her at Target for $5. I cut off the obnoxious bottom part that was all, "LADY GAGA: TELEPHONE" so it just looks like I have this great, professional photo of her instead of an annoying teenager poster. I hung it on my wall, and put this old gold frame around it that was in my basement at home.

In my bathroom, I have a continuation of my favorite colors- green, orange, and light blue. Everything is from Target, obvi.

Can I tell you how excited I STILL am about this towel? It pulls together all the colors of my apartment PERFECTLY. My mom found this beauty at Wal-Mart. WAL-MART!! Can you believe that one?!

I painted this stool at the end of summer. My brother gave me this stool that he made in high school when I was like, three or four. Blue leopard print freshened it right up.

Outside of my kitchen and bathroom, there are a couple of details that need to be mentioned.

These hooks are from Ikea and were $2 apiece. They are right by my door and hold keys. I think I'm the only one that likes them, and I don't care.

This air-conditioner is leftover from summer. It caused a number of problems that I absolutely don't have the energy to ever discuss again, but doesn't it look cute surrounded by leopard-print duct tape?!

To be continued...

P.S.- Let's ignore that month gap between posts. Kapeesh?
