101 in 1001 Update - Jan 2018

Since moving to Milwaukee and starting my new job, I was able to cross off a few items and I wanted to share that progress here on the blog! It's been such a pleasure to decorate my new apartment and get settled into my new routine. Check out some of the newest items crossed off my list below.

Decorate a bookshelf full of my travel stuff and books.
I am almost done with filling these shelves with all of my travel souvenirs. I am hoping to get a few plants to add to this vignette and then I will consider it complete. For now, it makes me so happy to see all of these small things outside of their boxes and on display.
    Find a couch or chaise lounge that I love.
    I bought the Derry Couch from All Modern and I love it so much! At almost 6 feet tall, I can stretch out completely without bending my knees which is such a benefit. The silver velvet is super soft and while the couch is a bit firm, it is definitely comfortable enough for an afternoon nap. 

    Figure out how to store my makeup in a more cute way!
    With bins for things used all the time and cases for things used less frequently, I struck a balance between getting ready fast and having all of the things I love close and available. I grab one basket for getting ready for work, two baskets for getting ready to go out, and also the bag on the right if I want to do a full face.  I do not have to dig through all of the bins unless I have a really specific look I am going for like a purple cat eye or a deep vampy red lip.

    Do a sun salutation in the morning before work every day for a month.
    I find that getting straight out of bed, making up my bed fully, and doing a sun salutation is a nice way to fully awaken in the morning. As my job makes my day super hectic and full of problem solving, this bit of peace to start the day brings me so much joy. As I try to become a morning person (more on this soon!), a quick yoga practice  is definitely helping me to enjoy those first moments of the day and develop a routine that makes me want to rise early.

    Learn to make my own bagels.
    After seeing the recipe on Instagram, I made these greek yogurt bagels as they are yeast free and super quick. My favorite add-ins are cinnamon, ginger, and raisin or smoked cheese, spinach, and herbs. They bake up quite quickly and the recipe I linked makes two big bagels or 4 mini bagels or 1 monster bagel - choose your size according to how hungry you are.
