New Favorite – Project 62

 

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love Target. It is one of my favorite places to go when I have free time, and it is probably the main place I shop for everything from toiletries to housewares. Well, a month or so ago I got an email about a new product line they were launching in September, and I was super excited! The new line is midcentury modern, but still classic. The line is called Project 62. It is modern living at an affordable price. 

I am all about the branding of a collection, so the first images I saw of the new line simply had me hooked and immediately obsessed. The layout, the logo, the styling of the first images of the line released spoke to the designer in me. I love the typography and the style of the furniture. The richness of the color on the white background just makes it all stand out. Who wouldn’t want to see the rest of this collection.

Fall is coming!

I love fall and I cannot wait for September 22nd to get here! I love the chill in the air, the changing of color on the leaves, and the wardrobe. I am a true winter baby, so being able to layer is amazing!

Although the weather here in Michigan isn’t really fall-like, I’m sharing some things that make me think of fall. Fall inspiration you can say.

I created a full inspiration board on Pinterest, here’s the link to the full board.

Weekend at the Movies | Waiting to Exhale

So this week, I’m doing something a little different. I was thinking of doing something different, and thought to share a little bit of music from the movies. I watched Waiting to Exhale with my mom, who had read the book of the same title. It was very well written and a great story to watch unfold. I was about 20 years old when I saw it, and I thought it was a typical girlfriends get together and talk bad about their exes. I was pleasantly surprised by how the story developed. Their friendship seemed to be the important takeaway and you somehow had to make sure all your friendships after this movie had to be that strong. The women were strong as individuals too with tons of personality. I won’t give the story away if you haven’t seen it, but it’s a good cult classic movie from the 90s that I totally recommend you watch on a lazy weekend.

The soundtrack honestly could stand on its own. It’s one of my favorite movie soundtracks that I could listen to front to back with no skips. I guess with Whitney Houston, Chaka Khan, Brandy, and SWV on one album, you can’t go wrong with a hit! My favorite song has to be the Chante’ Moore song “Wey U” that is melodic and relaxing. It’s still a favorite of mine after all these years. The soundtrack is about as classic as the movie.

’67 | Weekly Playlist

So this weekend there is a movie coming out about the uprising here in Detroit during the summer of 1967. No matter what you know or don’t know about what happened in July 1967 in Detroit, you know that there was a lot of good music from the 60’s. There is a lot of media and talk about this movie, so I wanted to pay tribute to the music of that year and keep things light and positive.
