Quiet in our house these days is a relative term and usually some semblance of it doesn't occur until way after 9:00 pm, which, for the record, is my bedtime.  (Seriously, I'm lamesauce). But regardless, when I do get a moment to myself, I love to spend that time reading.  Whether it's catching up on Vogue (which I still woefully a few months behind in) or tackling the my recent pick on my Kindle, I love to spend time in our guest room. It's the room in our place that gets the least amount of use.  There's not a TV in there so it's easier to not get distracted.  And the bed is heavenly; it was my bed in college and is the perfect mix of comfort and firmness.

A few things to mention: I just got these Warby Parker specs in the mail on Friday.  After several at-home try-ons (which is a fabulous service BTW), I picked a pair and executed.  I couldn't be happier.  If you follow me on instagram, you've already seen them.  And secondly, I finally caved and got the leopard tieks that I wrote about here.  I took them for a test drive on Friday while I was out running errands with Peanut and they are amazing.
