Let's get started with my favorite thing in the world, shoes.  More … [Read more...]

I'm going to show you how to make a really lovely centerpiece to bring some festivity into your home, or to give as a gift.  You will spend a fraction of how much flower arrangements usually cost.  In fact, the cost of the centerpiece … [Read more...]

Apple & Honey Dishes For Rosh Hashanah

So what's on the hit list for fall?  Here are my top items: BOOTS!, 60's inspired fashion (think Mad Men), chunky jewelry, Native American inspired … [Read more...]

Create Your Own Kendra Scott

When I was at Fashion Night Out ("FNO") 2 weeks ago I was introduced to an amazing jewelry store called Kendra Scott. This store takes creating your own jewelry to a whole other level.

That night Ellie (@teasandsweets), Romy (@romyraves) and I arrived at the … [Read more...]

Tulip Flower Fairy From Chasing Fireflies

When I was little picking my costume for Halloween was the great decision of every September/October. Who knew that it would be just as difficult to choose your child's costume too.

Chasing Fireflies (@chasenfireflies) has costumes that are absolutely gorgeous, but better yet transcend to … [Read more...]
