the one about Easter and baby humans...

It's been awhile but as you can see I've been growing a baby human so have been a little busy :)

I've been pinteresting, hoping to find the perfect DIY inspiration to warm up our Master. I'm really into the reclaimed wooden headboards, either cut out pattern or a major wall statement.

I love the coziness below via and super adore the duvet, its Target circa 2012.

This one is not exactly "warm" or king sized, but love the shape.

Happy Easter Ya'll!

The one about the toy explosion...

I'm not even going to start with showing you a picture of our living room...just close your 

That's all i need to say, just imagine a living room and imagine an explosion that has distributed Barbie shoes and mini princess dresses into every crevice. I don't even want to get into what I find in the couch cushions, I'm sparing you, just believe me,  from the physical sight of this that will draw even the strongest mommy to tears.

So I need a storage solution that will also be aesthetically cohesive with my space. Where does one go for such inspiration? Why Pinterest of course!

probably don't have the space :(

Would be easy to make, but I need some texture that's not wood.


Restoration Hardware....$300!? :(
Really leaning towards something canvas and/or metal. Really bummed the RE number was so much moolah. The search shall continue. Wish me luck.

The one where I brag about my thumb...

So it's been almost 5 months since I purchased my three fabulous succulents and they are still ALIVE. Many interior plants have met a tragic end at my hands, but these three are thriving. That's because they are related to the cacti you might say. Yes, yes this is true, but I've also been known to "over-love" my plants when not completely neglecting them and these guys havent yet drowned, so all in all I'm pretty pumped.

Now that my thumb is greening up a bit, I am ready for spring and for Home Depot to get in lots of presh interior plants and trees (don't ask me why they seasonally supply interior plants because that, friends, I do not know). They are so much more reasonable than the nurseries and usually more bang for your buck on size!

Happy watering!

The one where I'm seeing red...

Red carpet that is!

There are few things I love more than ogling at the gorgeous looks at a red carpet. The hair, the accessories (occasionally in the form of male arm candy) and of course the gowns.

I've never been a huge fan of red dresses, maybe because I've never been able to pull them off well myself or perhaps similarly to the dreadful haircuts my mother so kindly helped me sport in my tween years I had a scarring cardinal wardrobe moment, but this years Golden Globes was flocked with shades of red and I didn't hate it!

And then there are the muted gowns that are ANYTHING but muted. Julianne Hough and Amy Adams were standouts packing a major punch in their creamy hues.

And I need to give a shout out to my favorite show on network tv...SMASH!
Have you taken time to watch the 1st hour of the 2 hour season premiere on If you said no, slap your hand, grab a glass of bubbly and your nearest wifi'd device because it was spectacular!
And they are all so different and so stunning, I loved their chosen styles which flattered them all respectively.

In other fashion news, I went shopping today for a little guest post I'll be doing next month over at Plum Shabby. Stay tuned.

The one about Colorsnap...

I just saw via Pinterest that Sherwin Williams has an app to find the paint color that corresponds to real life colors. Sounds pretty awesome to me! It says it works on Blackberry but I am so over my BB and will only do this once I have fully appleized my life and added an iphone to my arsenal (hopefully in next month or two). 

check it out here

Anyway, check it out, let me know if you have it or plan to try it, I wonder how accurate it is.
