Parrtttaayyyy

DAMN YOU PINTEREST! My life used to be so easy when it came to planning and decorating for parties. White platters (a must), coupla well thought out balloons, streamers, voila! Not anymore. Pinterest makes it nearly impossible to have a party without having to spend $200 on oversized balloons or intense DIYs that will never ever […]

Interior Style with Dr. Jekyll

I feel like my ENTIRE life I have been traditional. I’m a J.Crew/Gap kinda gal. Although, everyone once in awhile this other side of me comes out and I want to be rockstar/fierce/badass which usually translates to rockstar/fierce/badass in J.Crew/Gap. This is how I feel I am with interiors. My home is uber traditional. Straight lines, […]

Catchup

So what’s been going since my last post (before last)? A whole lotta hibernating, a quick jaunt to the Sunshine State Golden State, and a lotta recipe trying. (yes, there was a typo here, it was partially a reference to Dumb and Dumber and partially a typo I couldn’t change due to stringent firewall protection […]

Happy New Year! Happy Birthday! Happy Lady! And some staples…

Last time I’m going to say it, 2013 was horrible. It was happy in many ways (trips, my relationship with the hubster really shining, great clothes, um SURROUNDED BY PRETTY) but there was a lot of it that really weighed heavy on me. Enough, enough, enough negatives, all positives for 2014 and 29. Yeah. Twenty […]

Netfunning: Christmas Style

The fabulous Kristy of House of Evans approached messaged me a little while back to discuss Christmas on her blog. Kristy is from Australia and we kind of became buddy ol’ pals via the internets. Head on over, take a gander, and fall in love with her blog like I have! A Very Blogger Christmas: […]

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like….

Hub and I declared this weekend to be dedicated ONLY to Christmas. I firmly believed that seeing the decorations FORCES the spirit, and I was right. I am in that SPIRIT!!!! While I do have oneee last […]

Werqin’ on mah Fitness

A few weeks back I filled you in on my new adventure/challenge. I needed to shred some lbs. This time was different though. We’ve all done it, the crash diet, the quick way, eating lettuce for 4 days straight and thinking, “oh I can totally do this forever, and I’ll be 100 lbs and feel […]

Get the Pretty: A Cozy Bedroom

I received an SOS yesterday, a bedroom SOS. Bedrooms are tough. When you’re a girl you want it to be fluffy, cozy, fun prints, ladylike…. you get it, but when a man gets involved you need to remember he needs to sleep there too and waking up with sequin imprints on his face is not […]

I Need You, I REALLY Need You!!!!

Let’s just start this off by saying weekend (and shopping) does a body (and mind) good. I had a whole sob story introductory paragraph written out that would’ve really been a downer for Monday morning read, so let me try this again in a more upbeat manner. A few weeks ago I said to hub, […]
