I would consider my style, as in decorating, pretty eclectic (hope to post images from my apartment soon). I love white walls with pops of color. I am also very inspired by anything Anthropologie. Here are some items that I fancy, in relation to my style, from the adorable online site Reform School .
This weekend I enjoyed sun, sun, and more sun. That's right, the past 2.5 days were spent enjoying the outdoors and this lovely weather we're currently having in the Big D. I spent most of time taking in the fresh air on restaurant patios and poolside, but one thing I enjoyed most was reliving my childhood days and playing board games. Monopoly (my team won!) and Othello.
There's a lot of cool, new games out there, but I've always been partial to the originals.
Did you know that Monopoly is the best-selling board game in the world sold in 103 countries?
Othello, originally called Reversi, was given its name in reference to the Shakespearian piece Othello and the conflict between the two characters, one being black (Othello) and one being white (Desdemona).
What's your favorite board game and fun fact about it?
How many of you love camping out there? Well I do and I am thankful for parents that allowed me to experience it as a child. I've done 'em all— tent, camper, and motor home. Though the latter two were comfortable and fun, nothing beats the fresh air and nature experience of camping in the great outdoors. I do prefer the coverage of a tent though.
How I got the idea for this post:: Daily Candy recently published a list of What to Pack items for the Coachella Music Festival (must-read for any fest). While this "camping" experience is a little different, and more fashion-forward, it gave me the idea to come up with a list of things for my next camping trip. I hope they will be helpful to you! Here we go...
