Some time last year, I discovered this gem of an Instagram account called Matchbook Diaries. I believe it was through Lindsay–she’s been the source of a number of unique brands + businesses I’ve come to love–and it’s become one of my favorite accounts to follow. There’s something so clean and classic about a crisp photograph of a singular matchbook, and I’m not sure how, but it achieves a look that I think would be compatible with most decorative aesthetics/preferences.
Hello again, friends! I dropped the ball on getting posts up last Friday and yesterday, despite best efforts to spend a little more time on the computer before we left for Amsterdam on Thursday evening. While we were there, it just made sense to unplug and enjoy our quick, three day vacation. I didn’t even end up posting on Instagram as much as I’d planned to…a full recap (including an interesting story about our return trip) to come soon!
Normal MWF posting will resume tomorrow, but I wanted to drop in with a bonus (haha, let’s just pretend since I randomly skipped two of my “normal” blogging days) post in light of L.L. Beans’ 25% off sale that ends tonight. They’ve run this discount a handful of times in the past few months, and unlike in years past, it works on Bean Boots, too! Most notably, this quilted pullover that’s become one of my favorite things in my closet, cannot stay in stock but is back in a few colors and sizes–snag one if you can, and keep an eye out since there have been restocks!

Happy Wednesday and Happy Valentine’s Day, if you’re someone who gets into the holiday! I used to love it as a child (but who didn’t, thanks to decorated shoeboxes full of notes, unlimited sweets, and a lot of pink!) but have been pretty apathetic about it as an “adult.” I think it’s due to the commercialism and that a lot of people mope around and strongly dislike the day…J and I have never actually gone out to eat but instead typically order takeout and do some kind of small gift ~$20. This year we’re foregoing the gifts, ordering Chinese food, and spending the evening packing (and blogging, etc. for me, let’s be honest), since we’re heading to Amsterdam tomorrow! We found a great deal via Scott’s Cheap Flights a few months ago and jumped on it–we’ll be back Monday, but I’m excited to explore a new city that’s been on my bucket list for seemingly ever.
