wine wednesday…

My friend in LA sent me this from Refinery29.  ‘What Your Signature Drink Says About You.”

I probably couldn’t have described myself better.  And wine happens to be my drink of choice.

As they said, “easiest to refill…”

Personality Type: You feel generally happy and dissatisfied at the same time. You are ambitious but don’t feel lucky. You would call yourself jealous because you are also very self-aware. Your preferred party position is talking late into the night.

Signature Drink: Wine. It’s the drink that’s easiest to refill.

FleaPop…Online Thrift

The Boyfriend and I are contemplating moving.  And, unfortunately, when contemplating a new move, it makes me contemplate all new furniture.

Now I need all new furniture.

Actually, The Boyfriend has been trying to teach me over the last five years the difference between ‘wanting’ something and ‘needing’ something.  I’m still learning but I’m pretty sure this is one of those ‘need’ situations.

I found this site on Refinery 29, which is another fave of mine, for amazing online flea market shopping.  FleaPop, based out of Santa Monica, is quasi-Etsy-esque in its concept and design but it has amazing home decor, furniture and antiques.

I love flea markets just as much as the next person but they make me feel kind of like I need a shower once I leave, like I’m dusty.  So this is obviously the best alternative.  Online Flea Markets.  Honestly, you can do anything on the internet.

They have incredibly amazing finds, from vintage Knoll chairs (my mom is an interior designer, I notice things like that) to antique candelabras and vintage reproduction light bulbs.  I don’t need it all, like the guy who only makes leather pillows with Jesus hand painted on each, but I need most of it.

So maybe I am looking forward to a new move.  Of maybe just new furniture…
