Reflection

So I finally had a day off this past sunday, Woohoo!! Don't get me wrong I absolutely love both of my jobs but some days I just need a break, to recharge, sleep in, walk around my house and do absolutely nothing. I needed that this past sunday! But I didn't do anything of that, I did something else that I have been needing to do for a while and it makes me happy, paint! Yes, all sunday I painted my bedroom and tiny hallway and I m absolutely in love with the color I picked, my bedroom got a nice fresh pick me up. It will be on the blog soon, I m doing a little spring makeover to my bedroom and boy did it need it! No pictures for this post … [Read more...]

First Antique Shopping Adventure

So I m keeping up to my goal that I set for myself about blogging every tuesday and thursday, so far so good! Man, can I get an amen from my California peeps out there for it being spring and almost summer weather right now? Amen! I went to Ann Taylor Loft on monday and almost bought the entire store because I didn't have a stitch of spring/summer clothing in my closet and their prices were incredible. By the time I left, me and the girl from the dressing room were on a first name basis, I wishing her luck on her date with her boyfriend and she was wishing me luck on losing a few pounds before bikini season. I have several projects going … [Read more...]

Distractions

Meet the newest member of the family: little Indi Belle! She is a sable and white shetland sheepdog and  she has us wrapped around her tiny paw. How could she not? Look at that face! I grew up with a shetland sheepdog, he was a family dog but he had a … [Read more...]

Coffee Bar Beauty

Hey Everyone! I hope everyone is having a great Thursday! Thursday means it's almost Friday, yay! For those of us that work in retail..it doesn't really matter what day it is until it is your day off :) I m at home sick today, the flu has been going around the store and I knew it was only a matter of time till I got it, but tried my darn-dest to prevent it, obviously to no avail!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone! Sometimes I feel like it can be a single person's worst nightmare…I just lied…it is a single person's worst nightmare! But this year I am not going to let it get the best of me, it is a day to celebrate love, and by love most people understand that to mean showing love towards a significant other, which I don't have right now and haven't had on the infamous "v-day" for the past few years now. The one time I did have a significant other on Valentine's day was in high school and I watched all the senior girls in years past get surprised with sweet notes on their car, flowers delivered to the classroom, big … [Read more...]

Trash To Treasure

Hey Everyone! Sorry I have been MIA! I have been busy working really hard at Pottery Barn, learning all of the new goodies that have come into the store for spring and learning all the furniture so I can give my clients that best advice when they are in the market, looking for a wonderful new piece of furniture. My skin care business is also starting to pick up after the holiday season, after the holidays and the sun is starting to come out and clients are starting to think about spring and want to step into that new pretty spring sun putting their best face forward! This post is one that I have had in the making for a while and … [Read more...]

Calendar Beauty

My First DIY Post! Hey! I hope everyone's new year is off to a great start. I feel like I have hit the ground running since I got hired at Pottery Barn back in November and moving into my salon space just this past weekend, but I am so blessed to be doing things that I love. One project that I have already completed for the new year and one that I am so proud of: is my calendar for the year! Its has been a long standing tradition in my family that for Christmas my mom always got the whole family Calendars for the next year. For about the past five years she has made these calendars extra special and personalized them with family photos. … [Read more...]

Hi There! My Very First Post!!

Hey Everyone! I am SO excited that I am finally getting this process started. I originally intended to start this blog because I have family literally all over the world and I wanted them to be able to stay connected with me better. I find that sending a small christmas letter at the end of each year didn't really make me feel like my family truly knew all the "happenings" going on in my life. But as I thought about it more, I have a lot of creative ideas floating around all the time and I thought that blogging would be a great way to share my ideas with people and have them share ideas back to me! So family, friends, … [Read more...]
