On My Mind


I love the On My Mind feature in InStyle magazine each month

Here is what's On My Mind right now

Morning Pick Me Up: Starbucks Skinny Vanilla Latte, though I am
really trying to limit myself to one or two a week.

Shoe Fetish:
Currently cannot get enough of Tory Burch Leopard Wedges

Game On:
I am a huge board game girl. Scategories is my favorite. I don't
lose.

Signature Scent:
During the day I wear Burberry Brit, at Night I wear
Couture/Couture by Juicy Couture

Workout:
I have a little workout crew consisting of my dad, my brother,
and a close family friend. Every morning at 430 I am in the gym and I do
30 min of cardio followed by different weights each day. I'm definitely
grumpers until about 515, but my days go so much better when I start them
with a workout

Fill me in ladies on some of the answers on your mind...

In desperate need of a good flea market/thrifting trip

I haven't been on a good thrift or flea market excursion in a while, and that makes me sad. There are a few reasons..one..um, I'm kinda running out of space. lol. I can't bring home much more stuff into my little condo. Two..my daddy is my go to buddy..he has a great eye, is able to tell me if he can actually accomplish the project I have in mind, and is great at getting a price to drop. Last time we went to the shops in Ventura, we brought my mom along, and she complained and got bored and looked like we were dragging her through a jail. It's just not her thing. So I told her she can stay home in the future and not stifle our creative spirit. So, until football season ends, I won't be hitting up the Rose Bowl anytime soon.

Until then, I virtually flea

Fabulous pieces spotted at the Long Beach Flea on The Glamb Lamb



On a vacation to nice, Caitlin wandered into a french flea market




Camilla posted about the Trading Post in Poughkeepsie that has BANANAS inventory. Bamboo chairs...30.00 I would have an entire set.


Her local thrift store would leave my pockets empty as well


Eddie Ross scooped up this AMAZING faux bamboo shelving unit at goodwill

Could his transformation be any more amazing?

One of my best buys was a 5.00 chair I scored when I went on the Rose Bowl flea market trip with Eddie Ross, who would've thought it would turn into George's favorite place to stalk to squirrels

Have you ladies scored anything lately? Leave me some inspiring comments to get me out to the stores!

Happy Weekend Kittens!


Happy weekend dolls! What do you all have planned! This weekend is my church's annual Festival, which means 3 days of food, bingo, rides, silent auctions(by Sunday afternoon, all hell breaks loose. There are fights, there are fists, we often have to remind people it is for the kids. Once, I had a meltdown with 2 min left to bidding and was brought to tears..I was 22 years old. I look forward to it every year!

Happy weekend lovies!

Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe


First we had Katie Holmes playing Jackie Kennedy.. now the first pictures have emerged of Michelle Williams playing Marilyn Monroe. Somewhere, Joshua Jackson and James Van Der Beek are waiting for the call that they soon will be starring in a film as JFK.

S'MORES on a Stick


I won't even begin to pretend that I don't have a weakness for marshmallows. Like, I could eat them all day, every day.
So, I am looking for the perfect excuse to make these smores sticks that I found on Gimme some Oven
This super simple recipe would be such a fun little unexpected treat..maybe for Thanksgiving I'll bring them over..I mean, nothing says Thanksgiving dinner like smores!

Hour Tour: Summer Thorton's Chicago Townhouse

My Nick Toon Halloween Inspiration


Hello Loves! Since it is officially October, it is costume time! I have finally settled on my idea, which will be fairly easy, and I hope enough people will know who I am so I don't have to explain myself all evening. I think it is about that time to have graduated past inserting the adjective "slutty" before fireman, police officer, cat, bee, etc(not that there is anything wrong with that ladies..I just think my bod is past that stage!)

I will be a character from one of the best cartoons of our time, Doug...his dramatic older sister, Judy Funnie.




I haven't decided if I am going to do the wig yet..probably not..I hate having my head by all hot and bothered all evening..and the hat will be enough..


Have you ladies decided on your costumes yet..or still need some ideas...you can check out this post or this one from our fab guest bloggers last year on some affordable costume ideas!
