I am practicing major self-restraint. I have a new urge to redo my living room in all deep blues with pops of oranges throughout. These pillows...on sale... must... resist!

Beach club floral print pillow, $9.99 each


I went a little bit ga ga over this London townhouse . The exposed brick walls and modern light fixtures are really breathtaking. If only I had that much sunlight in my apartment...sigh. Also love that gold gilt mirror in the kitchen - I'd never think to put a mirror in a kitchen but if you think about it - very smart. I can do lots of teeth checks.

If I ever have my own house - which in reality is light years away - you can guarantee that my front door will be painted in a canary yellow. I am so inspired by the scandinavian, sunny feel.

Last night I went to the Barnum and Bailey's opening night of Zing Zang Zoom. It was amazing and supremely scary all at once. I am newly obsessed with elephants. They're like wrinkly old men with permanent smiles plastered on their faces. Adorable.

Becky Kazana cards, $3.50 each

Angela Adams is my favorite designer in the home industry. Her trays are the only affordable item I can find. But come on - I'd easily shell out some mula for these babies.

Munjoy and Kenga trays, $45 each

Chick Flick.

But a seriously good film. If you need to get some tears out and/or you love adorable spanish-speaking boys - RENT THIS NOW! Best movie I've seen in awhile. I like heart warmers.

Under the Same Moon, $15


I don't have a green thumb perse, but I love gardens and gardening. I bought some little herb plants to put on my window sill. I need some plant life to keep me happy in the spring.

Magic herb garden with marker, $5

Silly Rabbit.

It's almost Easter - and these cozies are the perfect thing to keep newly decorated eggs warm. They make me sooooo hoppy.

I kinda wanna make granny kitchen curtains this weekend. So far I love this retro teapot print.

Aunt grace tea pots, $9/yd

I am back from a wonderful weekend in Maine. Sigh. I love it there. Oh well, back to reality and crummy NYC. (I really do love NYC - sometimes it gets on my nerves though).

Lobster print, $6

This weekend I am off to Maine for a birthday extravaganza. Saturday night one of my fave bands are playing - and then I am co-host to a Young and the Restless themed party. I am wearing a halter jumpsuit similar to the one shown here (only mine comes with a necklace attached - classy!). I might also invest in some virginia slims and a martini glass to complete the soap star look. Back on Wednesday!

Halter Wide-Legs Gaucho jumpsuit, $45 (but I got mine for $25 - obvi).

Happy Birthday...

to me.

I am going to eat this tonight.

Spring Fever.

I had an amazing birthday weekend. I got to do lots of shopping with my BFF. I saw "He's Just Not That Into You" with my Mama. And my fave bday gifts? My Mother made me a beautiful afghan! I can't wait to put it on my bed. My best pal made me a roll-up pencil case too - perfect for toting my writing utensils in. I love homemade gifts - they are the bee's knees.

I also bought these at Kohl's. Can't wait to wear them once it's warm out!

Ruffled sandals, $15

Be Still...

my beating heart. I love hat boxes. And this set of florals and stripes makes my heart go pitter patter. I'd just pile these next to my bed and use it as a chic end table.

Nested paper hat boxes, $25 for set on sale
