10 Things You May Not Know About Me


I have never been skiing (I got as far as drinking cocktails in the lounge)...

Pet-Peeves- When I am at the gym on the treadmill- "the sweatiest, smelliest" person plops them-self on the one right next to mine! Why?? I also cringe at chipped nail polish and dirty dishes in sinks.

Favorite food-french fries (NOT eggplant, Kev)

The best advice I have ever been given "Read everyday-even if it is the back of a cereal box" (thanks Dad!)


I have had the same 5 best friends since we were 14. From sweet sixteen, proms, college, to weddings (3 this summer) and babies-love you Romolo!-I am so lucky to have friends that are more like sisters-and I am looking forward to growing (but never looking) old with them!

I am currently trying to start a Non-Profit charity for Children's Hospitals (more to come on that subject)...

My favorite color is White (is that even a color?)

I used to have the Periodic Table memorized as a kid (I am pretty rusty these days though)...

What did I want to be when I grew up? A forensic scientist

My all time favorite singer is Stevie Nicks; I can listen to her enchanting voice and songs over and over again...

Black and White Interior...

Back in March 08- I fell in love with Nicki Hilton's home-featured on the pages of Instyle. I would describe the design style as "Old Hollywood Glamour Meets Rock and Roll." This black patent leather headboard is to die for!

Making this Chanel serving tray into a table is genius!

 A bold wallpaper and white chandelier complete this amazing dining room!

Runway Report

I love Tibi- the design house uses the most extraordinary prints and colors- and they use fabrics that are light, airy and  always luxurious...

The S/S 2010 line features pieces that are simple and classic as well as bright and bold. All of the looks were paired with nude shoes and no jewelry. A clean polished bun and hot pink eye shadow completed each look...

I can't wait to get out there and shop for some of these pieces which are in stores now. I found these "must haves" at Shopbop...

Cupcake Pops

These cupcake pops are to die for! I spent the morning poking around Bakerella's site- and I got a sugar high just looking at all of her amazing creations...

I love miniature treats...Hand these little wedding cakes pops out for bridal favors-you can find a step by step guide on her site...

Just in time for Easter- How freakin adorable are these little guys!?

Getting Organized...

I can only dream of owning such a fabulous closet like this! It looks like a little boutique! I would probably stay in here all day!

After hibernating all winter-my closet has taken a beating. I will spend the weekend cleaning and re-organizing my closet (fun, I know). I have always found that grouping colors from light to dark and separating styles makes my closet look bigger and easier to find things. Any other tips on closet organizing? 

Anyone else plan on "spring cleaning" this weekend?

Wall Art Stickers

I LOVE this! Sticker art for walls-Genius! It allows you to add prints to walls without the commitment of wallpaper-not to mention how easy it is to remove. I can see these being great for apartments to give some depth to a small space-and I love the prints out there for children's rooms.

High Society Hits New Low

I strive for to post things on this blog to be nothing but positive and inspirational- However- today is an exception...
Have any of you seen this show? It is a total joke! It's a cast filled with spoiled 30+ year olds- acting like teenagers partying around the city and throwing drinks on each other! This show is supposed to "jump-start" Tinsley Mortimer's "brand" but anyone who watches this show will not buy a single product of hers (at least I won't). She shows up at charity events and fashion shows not to support the cause-but to be photographed.

I was shocked and appalled when I watched Jules Kirby (who is she anyway?) screaming and yelling at the hotel staff where she and Tinsley's sister live...Oh by the way- when did it become cool to live in a hotel??

Spring Bags

Oh My gosh! I looooove this print! Very 60's retro, perfect for spring and summer! Prada has really been "on point" lately..

Butter yellow always makes me smile...

How adorably chic is this evening bag? A must have for wedding season!

I am still not over The Balenciaga just yet- especially with this new light blue tint! Love it!

Moroccan Oil

I am in love with this stuff! My friend Victoria recommended Moroccan Oil for my dried out hair-and it changed my life! Now I comb it through damp hair or apply to ends and fly-a-ways for an instant touch up. This is the perfect product for the summer to tame frizz!

Baby Fever

I went to a baby shower this weekend, and almost every guest there asked when Kevin and I are having a baby...

My response..."When we are settled into a nice house"...Why do people feel that as soon as you get married you should hurry up and have a baby? Why do people even ask? Anyway- for all of my pregnant or "soon to be" pregnant are some baby room designs that I love.

I love these rooms because they are not soo "babyish" but more "stylish." I love the chandelier in the first picture and the neutral tones in the second- my favorite is this black and yellow room above. It would be perfect for a boy or a girl!

I love this salad! It is so light and refreshing and screams spring. The blue cheese adds just enough punch to satisfy your taste buds and the maple dressing is so delicious! Add toasted walnuts for extra crunch...
