there are a lot of different brands of this choco cream from other european companies in European supermarkets. This choco cream has been around even before the Nutella brand.

My grandmother used to make it for me when I was a little girl.

ughhh! Next month my boyfriend & I are going to move above a chinese food restaurant. The smell is bad but there are worse things! ROACHES ARE MOVING AROUND THE ENTIRE BUILDING BECAUSE OF IT! But hopefully the chinese food store will go out of business once we call 311.

Honestly I love Ikea but target...eh. I've shopped here for a whileeeee. Yea sure everyone might have the same exact thing you do but everyone has different style/taste. They're things aren't always 150% great quality but whenever I go to other furniture stores such as Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn, BoConcept etc... I don't always find great quality items there either. Ikea is a great store for basic stuff but I wouldn't buy the entire catalog a few things are good there and last long for a great deal. You just really need to shop around before you make a commitment to big pieces of furniture that you use everything and sometimes you'll find a good deal or a really expensive deal or you'll even end up getting things custom made.

the bottom line is: shop around, think about it, imagine it in your home and finally if you really think it's great get it but if you feel even a little ify then wait it out and do the process again until you find the right one!

I'm absolutely in love with the cabinet with the folded clothing in it. Where can I purchase one in the New York Metro area.

Last night when I passed by this place I was wondering why those pots were there but I think they look very interesting. I mean giving old things a new life (recycling) is fun!

blinds could probably go with your windows since you already have a carpet. i usually prefer wood-floor over carpet because personally it's so much easier to clean the home & great if you have roommate(s), kid(s) or pet(s).

anyway you could get rid of the rug from one area to separate the rooms or just get some eye catching accents to divide each area without getting too much stuff.

definitely paint the wall using a good color to relax your eyes and make the space bigger. also be careful not to choose a color that's too warm (too dark) because it doesn't look like you have a lot of light so a dark color would make the space too even smaller.

i see a lot of potential here, your place looks good. it just needs some TLC.

I love the dinning room table and the chairs look a little familiar. I really the contrasts of everything! I love the wood floors, the color is very nice and it looks expensive.

But personally I don't like the paint in the living room area =[ the contrast of the blue green and the shades of red from the floor and bricks really bother me. Also I feel that the office space shouldn't have the checker board style floor because it distracts the mind.

Overall I love your place because it's kind of minimalist because you have what you really need.
