Red, White, And Brilliant

I love it when you can decorate for a holiday without it looking like you are decorating for a holiday. Just add pops of holiday coordinating colors and you're good to go! Happy 4th!

I'm so in love with this dress! I'm going to start planning my daughter's wedding now. It's a long way off but you can never be too prepared for these things.

Sweetest Baby Celebration

I don't think they played the "Guess What's in the Baby Diaper" game at this shower.

Trending: On-line Magazines

Have you looked at these yet? They are beautiful and packed full of the best life-style and decorating info. I do love the feel of a "real" magazine but now I can store my favorite pages on my computer and save all that tearing and filing of pages that I forget about until they are way out of date. I sure do like the future.

They Are Taking Over!!!

Shoes. We all have them. We all have a difficult time storing them. Maybe this will help...

This has me seriously cracking up! I love the concept but I could see it being used  for "Wheel of Fortune" by my kids. It looks way too fun to just store shoes.

I just cut my hair. Again. I've had my hair ridiculously short in the past. So ridiculously short that I could have enlisted in the military and fit right in. With the guys. But this time around with the short 'do I'm going to be fancy and wear an abundance of headbands. I love that there is an amazing selection out there.

These lovely headbands are from my favorite cheap accessories shop, Forever 21.
Of course, Anthropologie has exquisite headbands.
I'm not sure if I can pull this one off, but I just may try.  
My daughter and I have been making headbands like this one all week. Super easy and so cute!
And on my headband search I found a tutorial to make this super cute ruffly headband.
 Isn't it fun being a girl!?

A Lotta Bit of Beautiful

I saw these on Design*Sponge and I had to share.
My cocoa would be so much tastier if sipped from a "Cup on Cup" cup from Molly Hatch Ceramics. Aren't they just beautiful? Good, I'm glad you agree.

Do You See...

That rug behind those chairs? Yes, that's a rug. And I WANT it!
Here's a better look...
Isn't it divine? It's inspiring me to use a word like "divine". I must need it in my life if it's inspiring me.
You can find it in all it's eye-catching drama here.

Mean = Funny

Sometimes it just needs to be said. And why not be funny about it. I love Mean Cards.
(It doesn't love you back. (There's no app for that))
(And neither has your wardrobe...Happy Birthday)
