Ready for the WEEKEND!

Hi friends! Guess what? It's FRIDAY {ha! as if you didn't know!}! I could really use a weekend getaway, but I will settle for cruising on the boat :)

If you could do anything this weekend, what would you do?

Design Inspiration

What a way to enter a house! Love this entryway!

Bright, bold and fantastic! Looks like a secret garden!

This dining room is so warm and comforting...totally my style!

How amazing is that light pendant!? 

I have been scrolling through design blogs and maggies this past week trying to dig up some inspiration for our house. Lately, my design inspiration has gotten a bit stale, but I think I may have found some fabulous ideas! 
Where do you go for design inspiration?

Printed Pants

Sass and Bide Available HERE

Cynthia Rowley Available HERE

During the warm summer months I have a really hard time wearing pants-especially jeans. I find them to be so restricting and uncomfortable. I am always looking for cute and stylish pants that are also comfortable to wear, so I can give my summer dresses a little break. What do you think about these printed pants? Which one is your fave?

Tuesday Tablescape

One of my favorites stores in town attaches a little lavender sprig to each bag purchased. It is the perfect little "touch." Lavender is so elegant and the smell puts me at peace. Why not add it to a tablescape?

Beat the Heat Treat

Watermelon Mojito Popsicles: Recipe and Photo via Sugar and Charm

To say we are experiencing a heat wave here is an understatement, however I will take the heat any day over cold and snow! After an excruciatingly difficult week with work, I am looking forward to taking the day off tomorrow to enjoy this hot weather. You can find me at the beach somewhere or at the local tiki bar...

Sexy Honeymoon Lingerie

You and your hubby have just got hitched, and you both decide that there’s only one way in which you can celebrate your joyous union. However, you might think that the question of what to wear for such an occasion may be just a little bit tougher to answer. Thankfully when it comes to ideas for sexy Lingerie UK retailers like Ann Summers have just what you’re looking for. The quality, style and comfort of their lingerie can help to make your wedding night or honeymoon extra-special.

When choosing what to wear for after your wedding, you want something which suits you. Sexy lingerie is usually seen as something which you can’t go wrong with, especially when you and your partner are alone in your hotel room with nothing to do except spend your time in each other’s company. You might find that there’s so much choice of lingerie items that you might want to buy several items for different nights.

There are several things which you might want from lingerie you intend to wear for special occasions. The most important things that your lingerie should be are sexy, comfortable and light, whether it’s an underskirt, body stocking or dress. If it ticks all those boxes, then you should consider buying it.
One of Ann Summers’ most popular items of lingerie is the Natassia Peephole Body-stocking. There are many reasons why this is one of their best sellers: it’s made with fine lace on sheer mesh, and is comfortable as well as beautiful, while it’s also crotchless and has peephole cups, making it perfect for wedding nights and anniversaries.
Another popular item from their extensive lingerie collection is the Britney Dress in Black. Its deep black color and long, light mesh material makes the perfect thing to wear on your honeymoon, regardless of where you’re spending it. As well as being light, it’s also comfortable, and ideal to wear on a night in during the summer.

Monday Style

How adorable is this swimsuit? Want to know the best part? The price is right! The weekend weather was perfect as predicted. I wish I was able to slip on a swimsuit and go out on the boat, but it ended up being a little too chilly{for me}. We ended up shopping for bikes, and enjoying Father's Day lunch in Point Pleasant. How was your weekend?

Swimsuit Available HERE

Perfect Weather

After a gloomy, rainy, misty week here in New Jersey- the weekend forecast is looking perfect. I am looking forward to spending time outdoors. Sunday is Father's Day, and although my dad is with us in spirit, we will honor him, like always on that day. We will probably be spending the day with my wonderful father-in-law on his boat.

What is on your weekend agenda? Anyone inspired to pack a picnic basket?

Picnic Time!

Summer means sunshine, salty hair, sun-kissed skin, cold cocktails, riding waves, and swimming pools. It is also the perfect time for a romantic picnic.


Have you been on a picnic lately?

Tuesday Tablescape

This is such a fun, retro tablecape! Love the black and white table linens. Love the vintage chairs. Love the pops of colors with the floral arrangements. Love love love every detail!

Oh my Gosh!

I have always had a hard time "focusing." I don't have ADD, I just have my hands in a lot of different pots, if that makes sense? I am always striving to "do it all" and have a problem saying no to people. I need to learn how to relax, and focus on one thing at a time. Now that I have gotten that out there, that should half explain my lack luster, sporadic posts here on the blog lately. I promise, there is more to the story- and you will know about what else I have been up to very soon *wink*

What have you been up to?

Creative Ponytail

Simple. Summer. Hair.

My hair is either down with lose waves or up in a ponytail. Summer in New Jersey is usually hot and humid, so this style that debuted on the Carolina Herrera runway is perfect for a steamy day!

How do you usually style your hair in the summer?

"True love doesn't happen right away; it's an ever-growing process. It develops after you've gone through many ups and downs, when you've suffered together, cried together, laughed together."

Weekend Time

I made a promise to myself 3 1/2 years ago that I was never going to work 9-5, doing the same thing everyday, for a meager salary, while some CEO was making millions. I am not going to lie, working for myself, building a real estate career, and writing this blog is not always a fairy-tale, but it sure beats that feeling I used to have sitting at my desk in NYC, at 4:00 p.m. on a Friday, literally watching the minutes change on the clock. For those of you in that position, I feel your pain, or maybe you are not in pain like I was. So even though I am off to show some houses now, it still feels like the weekend has already started because I am doing what I love to do, and it is on my terms. Happy Weekend, whenever yours starts :)
