INSPIRED BY...

The windows. The lighting. The rug. The molding. The everything...

I hope you all have a good weekend! This was the final week of my deadline at work (THANK GOD), so it was crazy in my world this week. I am going to take a few days off next week to recollect myself and refresh my spirit. In the meantime, here is a little inspiration to keep you company... I will see you back here later next week!

How beautifully my three favorite English words are framed in two languages... 


The windows - again. 


That soft entry...

I'M WEARING: A FLORAL TOP ON THE TRACKS...

I mentioned here a while back that I have this thing for railroad tracks. They are straight-forward, simple, rustic, and organized. Those are a few of my favorite adjectives and perhaps the reasons why I like railroad tracks. Either way, I thought this was the perfect place to photograph one of my favorite tops at the moment. I really love flowers, but I don't wear them much. But the feel and colors in this top attracted me to it and it was the first purchase I made after the holidays with the money I received from "Santa." It made me excited for spring and thankfully it is here! I just had to celebrate that by wearing this fun top at one of my favorite places...

TWO THINGS...


Hi there! I hope your weekend was wonderful... I worked lots (last weekend doing so!), but found a little time to enjoy a few things. I bought calla lilies for the first time. I have always adored them, but have always thought they were so expensive for just a few. But you know what? I have been working HARD, so I paid for them with my head held high, arranged them and flanked them on the side of my computer over the weekend. I was happy. 

Yesterday,  I took a break from work to browse Target. I didn't need anything except time away, which I know is dangerous for the bank account. :) I saw the latest issue of Porter magazine and flipped through it. I'm not a huge fan of Lady Gaga, but I picked it up to flip through it anyway. Before I knew it, almost 20 minutes had passed by. The last issue was good, but this one is really good. The graphics and photography are really great. The articles on several inspiring and strong women are even better. I loved Christiane's "Golden Rules" below... 

Anyway, I walked out of Target with the magazine and about 8 other things I forgot I "needed". Target will do that to ya... :)

CASUAL FRIDAY + LINKS..


Happy Friday!! How was your week? It 'twas another busy week here for me. I crave the moment when I don't have to say it was a "busy week" on a Friday. But that is coming. I am in the home stretch of a big deadline at work and I am quite thrilled! So this weekend, it will be working, eating, and sleeping with a side of a quick workout for me! If your plans are a little more exciting, have a little fun for me, ok?? :) Enjoy the links!

Yes, yes and yes.

And speaking of food, this is best place at the moment to find some of the most beautiful food blogs...

Two words that can change a life... Boy this is true.

A home that I wish were mine. Such a beauty...

I ordered these (in navy) last week during the big sale and they are SO comfortable. Big score.

Oh and this classic everyday bag is on sale! I've only wanted one for ohhhh... forever, so I scooped it up this week. :)

A great advice blog on blogging...

The truth...

Weekend reading...

HOME TOUR: A MILL VALLEY REMODEL


When I was younger, I dreamed of living in a huge mansion with my husband, kids and my dog. And maybe a butler - one like Geoffrey, the butler on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. I loved that show... Anyway, the passage of time has certainly brought about a change in my preferences. I now prefer a home that is a little more intimate. I don't want anything huge, but I'd like a home that is comfortable and roomy in all the right places - like the kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms. This home in Mill Valley, California is the perfect example of what I would like. It's bright, the kitchen looks roomy and the bathroom is out of this world beautiful. Even though the home is remodeled, it still has tons of character. The lighting and the specific simple little details do the trick. I'd love to have something like this. Lets just see if my dreams come true...
