Memorial Day

Who's ready for some pool time today? I can hardly wait (hurry up sun, come out!) And to top it all off, my two little nieces are in town to join in on the fun. Yay! What are your plans?

Here's to hoping everyone has a fabulous day hanging out with friends and family and honoring all those who serve our country. Where would we be without you?!

Who's Ready for the Weekend?


I sure am - and it's a long one on top of that! Can't wait to lay back with friends and the hubby. (He'll be back this weekend from a week away. I know it's not that long, but when you live with someone everyday, it's kind of a shock to the system to have them gone.) Yipee!

Cheers to the bohemian spirit of a long weekend! (And the loveliness of the image above!)

Bright & Cheery Wallpaper




Wouldn't it be nice to have a little pick-me-up when you come home? I think this bright and cheery wallpaper would do just the trick. It sure lifts my mood on this dark and stormy night just looking at it.

Where did I find this great interior, you ask? Ahh yes, it is from the one and only Domino Magazine which is sadly no longer in print. (Deep sigh!)

Escape to Paris


What are we all thinking after a Monday back at work - take me to Paris! Yes, I am ready to run off to Paris and live the romantic dream. I need an escape from this reality.

Happy Birthday to the Mims!



Today is a very special day in our family. It's my mom's 50th Birthday, and we are going to have a rockin' bash tonight to celebrate. I could not ask for a better mother, friend, care-giver, provider, supporter and absolutely everything else you could think of over the years.

Mims - you are so wonderful, and I am so blessed to have you in my life. Happy Birthday!



And get ready everybody, we're having a fabulous dinner party tonight! Bring on the food and fun!

Dior Ads



I have been so loving the retro inspired Dior ads that have been running all season. They are glamorous, intriguing and fierce. Everything an advertisement should be!

Orange Fever


I have been obsessed with orange lately. (And I don't know why - it was never a favorite color when I was young. I was a "red" girl!) It seems so fresh and edgy that I just can't help myself.

And here's a little secret - sometimes I get the urge to do something drastic with orange (like paint walls and such!) But I haven't acted on it yet.

YET - that's the key word!

Lounging


Sometimes the best thing to do after a busy day at the office is come home, strip off your work clothes, and lounge on the couch a la Jessica Stam.

(Matching your outfit to your couch doesn't hurt either! It's making me want to go buy a loung-y green outfit. And a green couch!)

Hooray for the Weekend!



Enjoy your time off (and the weather) this weekend! I know I will be enjoying it all with a very handsome hubby!

Spicing Up The Workspace



Wouldn't a nice collage and some antlers get the creative juices flowing?



Or a nice vintage, leather desk chair?



I would even take this tiny, quirky space! Anything out of the norm really.

Happy Mother's Day!


. . . to the best mother in the world! (And who deserves breakfast in bed every single day!) Seriously, I could not be blessed with anyone better. I love you, Mims!

Secrets from a Stylist



I have to admit - I'm not so much the HGTV-girl as a lot of design fanatics are. It's just a little too boring for me - sorry! But, I will say that Secrets from a Stylist is right up my alley. I mean, so much so that I absolutely love everything that Emily Henderson touches. (I am secretly obsessed and am dying to work with her!)

Check out the show if you love modern, eclectic style that will take your breath away. Saturdays at 8 pm Central.

And check out her blog!

The Eclectic Office


Have I mentioned that I am dreaming of my very own home office? Ok, ok - I know I have like 11 thousand times now, but I do! And I couldn't imagine anything better than this eclectic, baroque one above.

Front Runners















As all you fashion-lovers know, the Met Ball was last night and the fashion crowd was definitely out in full get-up.

Of course, my girls did not disappoint. Make note - the column dress is definitely in.

Oats


Is anyone as obsessed with oats as I am? I'm telling you - I could eat granola and oatmeal cookies all day long. And I try to tell myself that it's somewhat healthy, but who am I kidding? When you eat a ton of oatmeal cookies, it kinda brings the health factor down a notch.

Oh well, sneaking more fiber in your diet any way you can is always a plus! (That's the diet tip for the day!)
