INGO: Hotel Edition

Going out in a foreign country is fun, but it has it's down sides too.
Sometimes you're jet lagged.
Sometimes you don't feel like "meeting new people."
Sometimes you don't feel like being an outsider.
Guess what's really fun, always no matter what?
Especially if it's kind of nice! (or really nice)
Especially if it's free!
Especially if there's a bathtub, a window that opens, and a chandelier that hangs over the bed.
Maybe there's a good movie on?
Maybe you can order hot chocolate room service?
Maybe you can ask for extra pillows?

I'm Sweden for work and it's VERY COLD. I have jet lag and have been working all day. I had a good day and even hit the streets for a minute, but I slipped out so I could enjoy so hotel life. I love hotels. I'd live in one if I could afford it.

An Evening Delight: Tub Time

Oh look at this regular closet. It's just a boring old closet...
Or is it??? Let's open the door and find out.
My tiny apartment has a few quirks, one of them being that I don't have a "bathroom." Instead I have a "toilet room" (aka "The Terlet Room") and a bathtub/shower behind these lil doors next to my bed/kitchen sink. (That's right. Just one sink where I wash both my dishes AND face). I make the best out of the situation and I know that one day when I move to a grown up apartment, I will look back at this with warmth in my heart.
But most of the time it kinda sucks.
Taking a bath is a great activity for when it's cold out and you wanna stay in. I love all kinds of bubbles and salts. I bring a dry washcloth in so I can easily flip the pages on my NY magazine or smoke a cig. EXTRA FUN: TURN THE PHONE OFF.

I Don't Know What I Love

So I've been working on this needlepoint and I've been really into it.
As you can see, the picture that came with the kit has it saying "I Love Rainbows" but the beauty of the piece is that I don't have to love rainbows if I don't wanna.
I can love whatever I want!
But I don't know what I love!

What do you think it should say?

My Pink Bathrobe

I am very particular about my robes.
They should never be too long, for example. I also enjoy robes with pockets.
I found this terrycloth gem at H&M a few years ago.
As you can see, it has pockets as well as hood, which is perfect for when my hair is wet.
The color is a beautiful shade of Roxy Carmichael pink.
I love you bathrobe!

I Never Go Out: I Stay Home

Welcome to my new side blog. It's about not partying but rather staying home. There will be no party pictures, only snuggly pictures and discussions on topics such as:

-Different kinds of housepants, nightgowns, bathrobes, and jammies (it's a fashion blog)
-Cool and pretty bedding, blankets, and decorative pillows (an interior design blog)
-Fun things to do when you stay home (it's an adventure blog)
-"Konversations With Kats" (the hottest interviews in town)
-Pictures of Spooky and Champ and maybe other animals one day too (it's like
-"Conversations 'bout Cuddlin'" (self explanatory)


Stay tuned!
