How-To-Roll-Out-A-Tuft-And-Needle-Bed-Casper

I’ve been meaning to write this blog post and give you guys an apartment update for weeks now! As you know, I’m officially and uptown girl! If you’re just tuning in, I moved to the Upper East Side at the end of last year. I absolutely love the neighborhood, especially now that the Q’s officially open! Who’s with me?

It’s been a slow process designing my one bedroom apartment to say the least.  The last update I gave was back in October! Eeeek. One of the first items that I picked out which was completely non-negotiable by the way was my queen mattress!

TGIF, party people! We made it to Friday and thank goodness for that. Last night I stopped by the Taschen book store down in SoHo. Have you ever bought a Taschen coffee table book? If not, they are having a MAJOR sale at the moment. The Surfing book pictured above is one of my all time favorites and it’s currently 50% off! I picked up so many classics and new-to-me favorites including 100 Getaways, Great Escapes North Amerca and New York.

This weekend the only real plans we have is stopping by The New York Times Travel Show. If you haven’t been before – I highly recommend! Take a peek below for my favorite links from around the web this week, there are some good ones! Xo. Lauren

If there’s one trend I’m loving this winter it’s velvet! Although one fun fact about me, I actually hate the texture of velvet. Growing up I was a competitive gymnast so I lived in velvet leotards for over 12 years. To this day I can’t really touch the soft fabric but I’m really starting to love the way it looks! I actually was looking into investing in navy velvet pillows (I love these!) for my couch because I love the way they look but again, I know I wont use them so that’s out. Anywho, today I’ve rounded up over 13 velvet items you can easily add to your winter wardrobe!
