Life Update – Moving, Home Decor, Fashion & More!

October 21, 2016


Well friends, it’s been awhile hasn’t it?! Since the last time I posted on this little blog, a LOT has changed. If you follow me on Instagram {or know me personally} then you already know – I moved to Denver, Colorado! I got a job offer, and within a few weeks I had my one bedroom apartment packed up and was saying “see ya later” to all of my favorite people. Crazy!

Moving was… stressful, so say the least. Let me start by saying that Mercury went into retrograde right when I was planning to move, and she was a real BETCH to me! Without getting into too many details, I dealt with no show movers (the WORST), scrambling to find back up movers during the busiest moving time of the year, finally finding movers and it taking THREE WEEKS for my stuff to arrive, and countless other hiccups. Needless to say, I’m glad it’s over!

So far, Denver has been absolutely fabulous. Fall is by far my favorite season, and I am constantly blown away by how beautiful the leaves, parks and greenery look right now! There is so much to do and explore, and I’ve been so lucky to have good friends who have let me tag along with them to explore the city. I mean, there’s so many breweries here how could I not love it?!

So lucky to have my bestie out in Denver to help explore the city! P.S. - SO happy with how my gallery wall came together!

My apartment has come together so well, and moving into a new place comes with picking up some new home decor items! Here are a few of the new home decor items I’ve been loving!


When it comes to fall fashion, is there anything better?! I feel like I’ve been able to score a few trendy and fabulous pieces, without racking up a huge price tag. My style in Denver has gotten a bit more trend focused, and I’ve loved exploring with adding a few new pieces to my existing wardrobe. Here are a few items I’ve either picked up or am currently lusting after!


Colorado is INSANELY dry, so I’ve really had to alter my beauty routine to adapt accordingly. I’m planning to do an entire post about some of the beauty products that have totally saved my skin and hair, and I’ll also share some of the makeup items that I’ve been obsessed with. Coming soon!

I’m still settling into life in Denver, but I’m hopeful I’ll soon create a good routine and be better able to keep up with this little blog. If there’s anything specific you’d like to see {whether it’s moving related, favorite places in Denver, tips for acclimating, fall fashion/beauty, etc.} please let me know!

#FeelingSpendy: Novelty Items

August 12, 2015

As evident by my Instagram {follow me @LindseySchaefer} I am a HUGE lover of novelty items.  Like, the things that you would never in a million years need, but are so adorable and colorful that your heart feels like it’s going to explode.  Dramatic?  Maybe.  But anything shaped like food, bright colors, adorable sayings or obviously rainbow sprinkles has my heart.  I have a vision of a future workspace where it’s all white and I have TONS of crazy piñatas, donut pillows, neon tassel banners and it is totally acceptable.  BUT for now I am just lusting after these items from afar, and here are some of my faves!

So fill me in… do you have any novelty items that you love?  I am a total sucker… they are just too cute!  Let  me know any faves you have, and be sure to check out some of my favorites over on Instagram!
