I recently bought a house with my husband, and have done more shopping than I expected to, and spent way more money than I expected as well. I’m told that all of this is normal.

So, what did I buy? Let’s get into it!

Zinus Suzanne Metal and Wood King Bed Frame. I will never regret upgrading to a king bed, I love it!

Command Picture-Hanging Strips. I’ve only used one set of these so far, but they were great. I’ll circle back when I decide to remove them from the wall.

BN-LINK Wireless Remote Control Outlet Kit. We got these to sort out selected outlets that don’t have a switch affiliated with them. A cute and simple solution.

Thermacell Mosquito Repelling Lantern. This was recommended by a colleague and we think it works? Plus, it’s cute.

Generic magic eraser sponges, set of 50! I think now that I might not have needed 50, but I have a basement for storage and now I won’t have to buy any more for at least a few years.

Krud Kutter, as recommended by Apartment Therapy. It doesn’t have a terrible smell and does good work in the kitchen!

Gorilla Grip Gripper Pad, for under the rug in my dressing room. So far, this is working excellently.

Marble-look contact paper. I had to recover the shelves in my linen closet, and this did the trick! It’s a bit more expensive than some of the other options online, but the quality is really great.

I have more items that I’ve purchased, naturally, but I intend to create some future posts about creating spaces in my home from start to finish, something I haven’t had so much experience with before!

DONE! Brook Lynn Hytes with one of the best runway presentations on Drag Race, EVER!

Chefs tell you how to doctor brownies up when you are using a boxed mix.

I am not a hoarder and can part with a ton of things without issue, but I do have the issue of “I bought this and haven’t used it as much as I would have liked, so I can’t toss or donate it” and blog posts like this one about identifying which kitchen items are actually getting used and getting rid of the rest are quite motivating.

The best Instagram accounts for vintage home stuff.

If you like makeup at all, you should watch RawBeautyKristi try out magnetic eyeliner and lashes because it is everything. You have to watch all the way to where she simulates wind with a blowdryer.

Watch Cardi B’s stylist travel to Paris to find Mugler looks for the Grammys, and then all of the other prep to get it all ready for Cardi to wear.

This closet is an IKEA hack for the ages! I’m obsessed with the color.

This creamy dijon chicken looks divine.

This Lifehacker instructional on how to go through the process of deleting your Facebook is one to save for the future. I haven’t removed myself from Facebook yet but it seems inevitable.

It’s almost February already!

The dresses from the Spring Viktor & Rolf show need to be seen and appreciated.

There’s being extra, and then there’s buying a chest full of macarons for $900.

I was sort of surprised at this piece on Song of Style, but really enjoyed it nonetheless. The Critical Issue Virgil Abloh is Solving.

These drone photos by Martin Sanchez are breathtaking.

The Tasty 101 video series is great, and this pie video is really informative. We actually made their ultimate chocolate cake and it did NOT disappoint.

I don’t need convincing about the enduring appeal of Nine Inch Nails, but there’s an article on it anyway.

Flamingo foster parents! So cute.

Over 10 years since Lady Gaga entered the scene with next level pop music! Here’s a look back at The Fame era.

This article on the costume development for BlacKKKlansman is fascinating.

I love pop culture references in art pieces. This store on Etsy is dedicated to pieces inspired by The Big Lebowski, which barks right up my tree.

This video about mixing face powder is mesmerizing.

Interesting look at habits that are keeping you from being a great communicator.

I am pretty interested in this master class on photography by Annie Leibowitz. At $100, I expected it to be much more expensive.

I need a house so I can get a Frank Lloyd Wright bird feeder.

Why you need a Roth IRA. I enjoy reading Two Cents pieces.

This is certainly one take on Trent Reznor’s 50 Greatest Songs. I don’t necessarily agree with this list, but I would put many of these into my own top 50.

At a very different place in the musical spectrum, Dave Matthews performed a short acoustic set at NPR.

After 10 years on Twitter, it took a negative tweet regarding Tonya Harding and her appearance on Dancing with the Stars for me to get trolled! All thanks to Yahoo Entertainment for including my tweet in their story.


Throwback to the Gary Numan show from last December. I need to see another one soon.

Dita von Teese on bringing luxury into your sex life, and into your life in general, in ways that are very accessible. I’m such a huge fan of Dita, I can’t wait to get a chance to see her live.

Shablam! She’s a woman. If you aren’t watching RuPaul’s Drag Race and aren’t 1000% Team Miz Cracker, don’t talk to me. (This gif is from a Cracker instructional video on putting your wig on so it stays on while dancing etc that isn’t on YouTube any more. I am so sad it’s gone.)

14 things you didn’t know about The Crow soundtrack. Genuinely one of the best movie soundtracks EVER.

I watched the hell out of this Dawson’s Creek reunion show, because that show was EVERYTHING.

Things that plus-sized women are sick of hearing is really correct.

Inside the 2 years that shook Facebook and the world. This story from Wired is great.

The Kitchn gives you easy ways to make what you cook healthier.

That’s all for this month!
