Goodbye 2012, Hello 2013!

Took a week hiatus from blogging to enjoy the holidays and recover from this cold I got over Christmas. I’ll be back to regular programming later this week, so have no fear!

I’m ready for 2013! Hope you all had a fabulous 2012, my blog survived its first year and I’m ready to take it to the next level in 2013!!


A year of Simply Epalf

This past weekend marked the (un)official year anniversary of Simply Epalf! I started putting this blog together last year over Thanksgiving break and officially launched it this past January. The past year of blogging has gone by SO fast and as an extension of Thanksgiving, I’d just like to say I’m thankful for all of you! Thankful for the blog friends I’ve made over the past year, the readers I’ve gained, and to my family and friends who are loyal readers of this blog as well.

So here are a few pics to take a trip down memory lane…

There’s a lot more in store for Simply Epalf! I’m working on a blog re-design and a couple of new features for the coming year.

Happy back to work day Monday!

Blog Vacation

Hello All!!

I’ve kind of been slacking with the blog lately. My 9-5er has gotten me uber busy these past few weeks and I don’t see it dying down soon! Sigh. So, I’m going to take just a week break from blogging to catch up on life and actually get some blog posts lined up.

See you in a week! I’m hoping that after a week break, I’ll have tons of inspiration and awesome blog posts for you!

…My body’s at work, but my mind is wishing it was on a real vacation!

Need Some Shade

Summer is in full swing! Finally! I’m currently in the market for a new pair of shades. My Karen Walker Deep Freeze sunglasses have  kept me going for the past year, but I think it’s time to add another pair to the mix!

Here are a few I’m currently debating over…

  1. Miu Miu Phantom Plastic Sunglasses
  2. Elizabeth and James Fairfax Sunglasses
  3. Karen Walker Harvest Sunglasses in Black/Gold

Into My World

I have finally gotten around to learning how to use my DSLR,  fancy smancy camera as I like to call it. I spent some of my free time this past week, playing around with the different settings. Since Mochi wasn’t there to be my model, I took some snapshots of my humble abode.

  1. Clothing rack – love love love being organized, especially when it comes to my closet. And yes, I have a clothing rack in addition to my walk-in closet.
  2. DIY nightstand – Bought this nightstand of off craigslist, painted it Robin’s Egg blue and added a gold knob from Anthropologie!
  3.  My resting place – Absolutely love my DVF duvet. I paired the duvet with a hodge podge of pillows and I think it all oddly comes together.

A different Simply Epalf post, but I hope you enjoyed it!! Happy Friday!!!!!!
