Molly Kate here! I recently made the move from a smallish city in Oregon, to the biggish city of Portland! It was an extremely bittersweet transition, but much needed, especially for my music. I got a great new job (which hasn't started yet, but I am SO excited), a great little apartment (that I've just started decorating), and a great opportunity to make the most of life.
A couple days ago I ventured out to First Thursday in the Pearl District, and had fun just listening to the live music, wandering around the fantastic street vendors, and trying on an utterly adorable, hand-made jacket from Bella Sisters (which I hope to purchase once my job gets goin').
So onward to the "new mug" portion of this post! I am unabashedly addicted to buying mugs. In fact, I had to leave 6 mugs from my small (but growing) collection at home because I don't have room for them all! (Don't tell my mom I bought another one!) Haha. I found this adorable constellation mug at Ace Hardware, and once I saw it we were (obviously) immediately bonded, and I couldn't just walk away! Eventually my plan is to find a cute Ikea cabinet that has glass doors, and display my mug collection that way!
Here I am, casually sipping. Oh, and fun fact, although not pictured, each side of the mug has different constellations! Rad!
Also I picked up these super cute prints at a super cute shop I just happened upon a couple of days ago called Cargo (which is also in the Pearl). They're old-timey bird prints, and they were only $4 each! And anyone who knows me, knows I love birds! (I even got one tatted on my shoulder for goodness' sakes!) I can't wait to explore Cargo more because it's really big and filled with amazing things that just need to be, well, explored! (Also, as you can see I love succulents and they hangout by me while I sleep. If I could, I would turn this whole place into a mystical land of succulents!)
Until next time lovelies!
