Mad About Monday

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Today is "Mad About Monday",  and I am featuring mirrored furniture. I am a real sucker for anything and everything mirrored these days, and even managed to score my very own piece for FREE from overstock.com because it was damaged during shipping (and they did not have any more in stock). Winning! Some people love this look (moi), while others despise it would rather admire it in someone else's home (my mama). How do you feel about mirrored furniture? Love it...or leave it?

Go Girl...It's Your Birthday

Happy Friday! Today is a very special day for me...it's my birthday! Today, I will (unfortunately) be working, followed by a mani/pedi, and dinner with my guy! Tomorrow morning, we are heading to LA to stay at our favorite hotel, The Mondrian in West Hollywood. I am looking forward to a nice, relaxing weekend away!

Gift from my huz!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

DIY Brass Figurines

Good afternoon! I saw the most fab DIY Brass Figurines on  Hi Sugarplum's blog, and I just had to share! How cute are these? I have been drooling over a few Jonathan Adler pieces for the past few months, but don't feel right about spending $500 on a figurine...I mean, come on. Needless to say, I was thrilled when I saw this amazing ($5) project. I'm especially loving the elephant -- what do you think? Enjoy!

"Mad About Monday"

Hello, and welcome to our second "Mad About Monday!" Today, I am bringing you COLOR! I am in love with bright colors as of late, and Spring 2012 is going to be all about color blocking and pastels -- I can't wait, can you? I used to be such a "black and white" person -- in my home, clothing, and accessories, but recently I have embraced color in every way possible and love how it really "brightens" up my day - pun intended. Here are some of my current favorites...enjoy!
