Not So Neutral

As of right now, my bedroom is completely neutral. Think light yellow/cream walls, mirrored accent tables, white bedding, cream taffeta curtains and pops of gold. I'm searching for an accent color but I honestly can't decide. Help me choose?

DIY Project 1

Over the next few weeks, I'm going to share a few DIY projects that my roommate and I have been doing around the house.

First up, my dark and dated floor lamp:

In order to update the lamp, we decided to purchase a more contemporary shade.  After buying the new shade, we bought silk hydrangeas and hot glued them around the base.

Next we spray painted the base of the shade with Krylon's brushed metallic "Champagne."

Just look at the difference!

Do you have any good DIY projects you'd like to share?

Hope you have a happy weekend!

Sally Hansen Salon Effects

Nail art is back in action, and I could not be more excited.  After seeing the fabulous patterned nails of my hair stylist, I've been dying to try the Sally Hansen Salon Effects kit (what she used)! My roommate shared my curiosity and we both purchased a set.

She went with leopard kit and I purchased the multi-colored flower set.  I've been so crazy busy lately that I have not had a chance to put mine on.  However, my roommate put hers on this past weekend and WOW, they look incredible!


She also said that they were insanely easy to apply.  You just stick them on and file off the extra bit.  They are supposed to last ten days.

I can't WAIT to go home and try mine! Happy Wednesday!



p.s. if you try them out, shoot me a pic at and I'll post it to my Reader Submissions page!!

The Coveteur: Joanna Hillman

I've told you about my Harper's Bazaar obsession before. I love it all, especially their Senior Fashion Market Editor, Joanna Hillman

The Coveteur recently featured her on their blog and she completely has/is everything I want to be.  Here are some pictures of her home, and things (please go explore this link, I PROMISE you won't regret it):

I want that entire page to be my wallpaper.

Also, Bazaar chronicled her outfits for an entire month.  Go see all of them here:

Isn't she amazing!?
