Last week I got the most beautiful and fragrant delivery from Brown & Greene Floral right on time for my Birthday. This beautiful bouquet combined my favorite roses and peonies with sweet-smelling mint in a beautiful vase that I will definitely be taking to our new apartment with us.

Brown & Greene Floral Market is the most adorable little corner store in Southwest Minneapolis on the corner of 44th Street and Beard Ave South. They produce such gorgeous florals, you will fall in love. I had so much fun integrating my bouquet into the interior of the house. From simply setting it on my night stand to using it as a centerpiece for dinner, to making it the center of the living room, these flowers immediately became a family favorite. I’ve never enjoyed a bouquet of flowers as much as I’ve enjoyed this one before.

This July they are celebrating their 15th anniversary with a number of events {European flea market, floral design class, a vase drive and a huge soiree at the end of the month}.

January Wish list vs Shopping list

We all need wish lists, and we also need shopping lists, today I am going to share mine! We are going to begin with a shopping list. I am not going to bore you with grocery lists and cleaning supplies, but let’s talk home decor, make up and all the fun stuff!

Zhenya’s January shopping list!

1. Haircut (see yesterday’s post for more details!)

2. Perfume (I am all out, I do have a little sample of Demeter Fireplace, but who for the love of God would want to smell like an actual fireplace?)

3. A comforter/bed set! Yes I am in the biggest need of sheets, cute pillows and a bed skirt, though I have doubts on the latter. And I am determined to get mine from Burlington Coat Factory, or at least Marshall’s 🙂 We’ll see where I can get a better price. Sorry JCPenny and Pottery Barn, you are just not my cup of tea!

I promise to post pics and reviews on everything that I get!

Now on to Zhenya’s January wish list:

1. This awesome clock:

I’ll let you in on a secret, this is also available at Burlington, but I saw this one in Fargo, so I have no idea if it’s available in Minneapolis or not 🙂

2. Yarn, to make a cable knit throw, like the one I saw at the Galleria in Edina. Check out my post about Etsy to see what exactly I am talking about.

3. Diffusers, candles (SOY!) and other cute little things to decorate the apt with!

Now I will probably end up getting the stuff from the wish list too, but if anyone wants to send me some, I’ll be more than happy 🙂
