As I was headed home from Chicago yesterday I realized that I’ve spent more time sleeping in other beds than my own the past couple of weeks, especially the week where I returned from Whatever USA before heading straight into our event at imogene + willie. That week I slept in 3 different hotels, in 3 different cities, in less than a week. Which is why I’ve been a little MIA this week, I needed some time to decompress and get my head back on straight.
There’s nothing I love coming home to more than my bedroom, which has now turned into my live/work space as well as my room #LoftLife, unless it’s in a state of disarray, and then I freak out a bit. west elm said it best this week with “It should be the place where you feel most comfortable, a place that inspires you when you wake up and relaxes you when you get home.” That quote made me realize that not keeping my space in tip-top shape definitely negatively impacts my work, what about y’all? Consider this my pledge to start keeping my room in better shape and finding my bedroom bliss.
In other west elm news from the last week they updated the classic Pimm’s cup a combination of watermelon, cucumber, mint, and basil. Just typing that made my mouth water a little (a lot).
Damsel in Dior shared 30 things every Damsel needs in her life, and while the post was geared towards women most of the items are things any decent human being should add to their arsenal.
Can you believe it’s almost 4th of July? Like, I can’t even. This month has FLOWN by. Luckily, Lou What Wear has us covered with some tips + shopping picks for that weekend.
Truth be told there are very few male blogs that I follow that inspire me to constantly keep pushing the envelope and fine tune my craft quite like Will over at Bright Bazaar does. Seriously, the guy does it all. Plus, he’s completely transparent about his life and his husband, which I think is something definitely missing in the male blog scene.
Another guy that inspires me to be a better blog would be Isaac from Isaac Likes. Even if I am jealous he’s been running around Florence with Jacey + Brian the last few days.
It can’t just be me that’s having the WORST allergies this year, right? If you’re in the same boat as me, Thom may just be here to save the day.
One of my favorite things about HGTV, you may ask, would have to be the guys on the shows. They’re cute, they’re funny, and they’re good with their hands. What’s not to love?
This goes back to sleeping every except my own bed the last couple of weeks, but on top of that I’ve not been sleeping that great when I do sleep. I’ve had a little bit too much on my mind, and I have a really hard time hitting the off switch. But these 4 Ways To Sleep Better from The Fresh Exchange gave me some hope.
I dropped out of college 6 months into my first semester. I don’t know what else I can say besides that it just wasn’t for me. The only thing that could’ve made me stay? The chance to study abroad.
IF you like blueberries + bourbon then you’re going to want to check out Beau’s latest drink, perfect for those 4th of July BBQ’s.
Speaking of bourbon drinks though, I shared the recipe for two Signature Summer Sips earlier this week with American Honey, you should check them out if you haven’t already.
Also while we’re chatting about blueberries, Gimme Some Oven shared a recipe for Fish Tacos With Blueberry-Almond Salsa, and what’s not to love about those combos?
Now that the weekend is almost here, and the temps are definitely rising all you need to do is listen to the words He Spoke Style and observe his 5 Weekend Style Basics.
The weekend for me is going to be spend in Henderson, Kentucky with Kentucky Travel & Tourism at a little Blues Fest and eating some BBQ. If that sounds at all interesting to you, then you should follow along with me on Instagram and SnapChat (@TheKentuckyGent), and then check back here next week for a fun little recap!
Last but not least, next weekend I’m headed to #SBScon, and I couldn’t be more excited. But after all the posts from my fellow attendees about what they’re wearing to the event, it looks like I need to get to shopping, and I’ve got my eye on this beach worthy gear + a handful of summer shoes. I’m going to be the only guy at the event, so I’ve gotta show out, right?
