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 […]

Wellllll wellllll wellllll and a Backyard Emergency

Wellllll welllll wellllll, look who’s finally decided to blog again….. Yes, that’s right. HERE I AMMMMMM!!!! Wowieeee wowwww (let me be like every other whiney baby from the northeast and say) that winter suhhcckkkedddd. It’s a fabulous 60 something degrees today and I couldn’t help but think: When will I be sitting on my deck sipping […]

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like….

CHRISTMAS!!!!! AGGGGHHHHHHHH!!! With finals, presentations, reports, credit card company screw ups I’ve been letting the holidays escape me. 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 […]

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, […]

Drinkin’ the Pretty: Apple Cider Sangria

I’ve said before I feel sheepish about posting recipes of schtuff I make because I feel like it’s stealing, but I guess it’s not if I’m giving credit. hmm…. either way I cannot allow my readers to go on with their lives without sipping this cocktail. This weekend we had some friends over, and I’m […]

Get the Pretty: A Formal Introduction

Apologies, Monday’s post was a sort of epiphany. I was putting together a haphazard post that blabbed about how much I loved black, white, and green. But here’s the thing, I’ve written more papers than you could even imagine. I have to research, support, summarize, and put in my own two cents and not fall […]

Black, White, and Green are my Jam: Get the Pretty Part 1

I repeat, black, white, and green are my jam. I love the look. It’s unexpected and it’s fresh. IMO black, white, and red is overdone and harsh. Black, white, and yellow is bumble bee. Black, white, and orange is seasonal. But black, white and green, love. Wanna take a lookie? source YES PLEASE. That pseudo Rorshach […]

CheapOH Makeover: Exterior Entrance

A little while back I posted this pic: I got some flack for the hideousness of the light. It’s true. It’s hid (as in hideous). It’s the same as all of the bootleg lanterns as every other colonial style house on our street. COME ON! For someone who claims to have such awesome taste and […]
