I moved into my new apartment last week about two weeks ago but have yet to really update the room and make it my own. I keep looking at the before and after photos on design*sponge and daydreaming about how certain things are going to transform this room. First of the new purchases is a full size mattress and box spring. Currently I'm sleeping on the bed my friend left behind, but I think I'm ready for an upgrade. Even if it means filling most of the room with bed.
I'm imagining a very bohemian bedroom retreat complete with soft lighting, piles of pillows and a beautiful white canopy. Or perhaps no canopy but gauzy lace curtains tied back with a deep pink velvet ribbon. I'm watching some things on eBay. It's all happening.
last thursday, I got home from a long day in which I interned and then hostessed back to back. When I got home, I had a package waiting. A series of gifts from my boyfriend for our one year. Apparently he took the hint that I've been lusting after the Diana for a while now and purchased the body as well as the flash for me. Got the first batch of photos back today... got some great shots, but could use a bit of improvement. I am also happy I just have the basics right now. Letting go of control and learning how to trust myself will be enough right now. As much as I love my Canon, I'm excited to be back to the analog world.
By the way, besides those first two, the rest of them were taken with Diana.
Between fleeing the city to escape Irene, searching for a new job and spending labor day weekend with my sister, things have been a bit hectic. I'm back to regularly scheduled programming though. These are a few pics from my last couple weeks.
