Zen-Like Approach

Even though it may be boring to my readers, I'm really enjoying my new outlook on blogging. I've taken a more zen-like approach to it, and I'm way less stressed. I've been enjoying using Cup of Tea as a platform to share my house progress, because it's something that is fun for me and really is what consumes my time and thoughts these days. I might not be getting the volume of comments I did before, but unlike before, I think I'm just fine with that.  Is anyone still reading? I don't know, but I do know that I'm still writing!

Since Cup of Tea has been transitioning into more of a lifestyle blog than a strictly fashion blog, I'm curious to know your suggestions on other lifestyle (particularly design-conscious) blogs to read! My current obsession is Design*Sponge.  Every day I indulge in its inspirational charm that spans the world of design and I love it all. It's like dessert at the end of the day!

Back to my house, here are some small Instagramified updates!

Bathroom sink has finally been installed! Never thought I'd be so excited about such things, but isn't is just lovely?! Yes, yes it is.

New doorbell. I couldn't just get a normal doorbell could I?  No, I like my new gecko friend.

Happy almost Friday :)
