I can’t believe “adult winter break” is coming to a close—I took two weeks off work and it was so nice to have this time to relax and recharge, especially after 2020. I didn’t leave town at all and instead just focused on some personal projects like reorganizing around my apartment to get ready for the new year, catching up on must-watch TV and books, and enjoying living life without a set schedule.
During the workweek, especially this past year when there’s less separation between work + home, I sometimes lack the motivation to work my blog. I have to be really “on” at work, so there are many days where by close of business, I just want to get away from my computer, not sit on it for longer. Now that I’ve had a break from work—especially since Q4 is always our busiest time!—I’ve felt really energized about blogging again and am hoping to keep that momentum going.
Since we are spending so much time at home, I’ve been really excited about having a new apartment to decorate. (You can see some things I’ve done so far here, here, and here.) As I was brainstorming ideas for posts, I realized I never shared one of the larger purchases I’ve made for my place: a gorgeous vintage Dixie Aloha Bamboo Dresser that I purchased from D.E.G. Furniture Designs. I purchased it the week I moved in to be used as a credenza under my mounted TV and it arrived about four weeks later. It fits the space perfectly and gave me a ton of extra storage, which has been so nice to have.
(As of the original post date, they have an identical one in stock on their Etsy Shop HERE.) Read more “My Vintage Dixie Aloha Faux Bamboo Dresser (+ Some Tips for Buying Vintage Furniture)”
