As most of you know, about a week ago I embarked on a 26 hour road trip with my mom to officially make my move down to Miami where I’ll begin law school next week. The first few days were extremely stressful to say the least. Long story short , getting re-situated is rarely a smooth process and this was no exception. However, now that things have settled down and I have a little spare time before my intense studies really begin, I wanted to take a minute to give you guys a peek into my new world down here! Below are pictures of my new home, as well as some showcasing a fun afternoon in South Beach with my family.
“Welcome to my home!” Don’t judge the awful photo, I was getting over a brief touch of heat stroke from being outside on a 100 degree day.
My super high, Florida-inspired bed. It goes to my waist so I step on the side board to climb in at night.
My beautiful and very spacious dresser. As you can see, this photo was taken while in the midst of doing my hair.
Displaying some pride for both my sister and I’s schools. She brought me this piggy bank made out of a coconut as a house warming gift! I use it to collect my quarters in for laundry.
Not the most exciting photo but I had to show off the homemade fishbowl that now serves as a makeshift “bangle bowl” that I made with the one and only, Jill Thurston.
Awkward lighting to show off my nightstand. The remote on top works for my high tech fan. I can turn it off/on or up/down without even moving from my bed.
Hello Kitty showing off her U of Miami pride! (and serving as a constant reminder of the wonderful Katherine Sullivan and our special kitty bound)
This is the view from the door of my bedroom. The genius who built it didn’t install a light fixture so I’m forced to resort to using a tall lamp.
My dream come true! The inside of my walk-inn closet. My favorite feature of the apartment.
My only complaint is that there isn’t adequate space for all my shoes. Many of them were left behind and the ones that made it are forced to live on a closet floor- awful!
My non-exciting bathroom. For as plain as it looks, you wouldn’t believe how long it took my mom and I to decide on a shower curtain.
The only cool aspect of the bathroom is the artwork I selected for the wall! Marilyn is forever classy.
My quaint dining room, perfect for a dinner party for four or an intense game of Clue (housed in the cabinet below the table).
It also operates as a makeshift study desk. Here, I was working on briefing my very first case! It would be exciting, if I had any idea what I was doing…
My little kitchen. We chose red appliances to try and make it not so dreary.
We also added some chicken-themed decor to make it more fun.
My living room where I watch tacky morning shows while drinking orange juice before I leave for school in the AM. The quilt on the side was handmade for me by my wonderful Aunt Honey.
The other half of my room with my loveseat and tv.
This is the beautiful orchid that my realtor gave me upon moving in. We’ll see how long the thing lasts under my care. I give it two weeks.
And to finish it off, a picture of my mom, sister, and I spending time in South Beach. Attempting to get a shot of us in the waves resulted in being soaked in some uncomfortable places. But it was definitely nice to have them here!
I wish all of you the absolute best as you embark on new journeys or continue on your current path! I’ll be keeping it touch with what Miami brings for me! :) Xo
