Photography Sole

Not only do I want the mary janes from the new Marais USA collection, but I want to know the photographer of their product! It's such a simple display that makes you want to look more.

Caught up in Ruffles

I just found these great pieces at Kate Towers etsy shop! I can't believe the detail in all of her work. Enjoy!

Clean Seat

I love the clean soft lines of this chair. I keep trying to use it in all my projects, but it's a little pricey so it get's substituted every time. I need a big spender client!!

One Year!

My husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary this past weekend! We traveled home to northern Michigan, left the puppy with my parents and got a room at Bay Harbor, Mi. If you have never been there, it's definitely worth the trip! It's a development with it's own zip code, boutiques, restaurants, a marina, golf course, equestrian club... We watched the sunset from our balcony, had an amazing dinner and caught up with some old friends. It was really nice to spend some time alone at home. Here are some pictures from our trip!

our thawed wedding cake- still good!

The "not so high" Heel

I am looking for new mary janes to wear with tights in the fall and winter! It's so hard to find a cute pair that I can wear all day without taking them off and wearing my winter boots for the rest of the afternoon! Oh and did I mention it needs to be within my budget too. (which is getting hard these days) We all know that the Chicago winters can take a toll on your boots and they are not acceptable office attire. Here is a great heel height that looks so nice and sturdy! The search is over. Find them at piperlime.

Stuck on my mind...

Check out these large scale decals from WallDecor's etsy shop! You can take them off the wall and they won't leave a mark. All decals are customizable. Can't wait until I can find a spot for one of these!

Tote Envy

I am envious of the girls I see walking down the street with large plush leather totes. I can never get myself to spend money on a bag even though it's something that makes my jaw drop. Especially this "spotlight" tote from Coach. They use the softest leather! The yellow straps and accents on this one create an updated retro look and would look amazing w/ my yellow leather belt I got from anthropologie.

Food as Art

I forgot to mention I also love cooking! Sometimes I cook for my eyes as well. (I know, that sounds weird) But isn't cooking art on it's own? The look of green avocado against bright red tomatoes or different colored peppers in fajitas. A mound of apples in the middle of a dark wood table or even just basic eggs can look so elegant on a glossy white plate. Were going back to basics people! Here's a look at Dave's (my lucky husband) breakfast this morning. I took some pictures before he ate half, but didn't realize i still had my memory card in my computer. Whoops! Thank goodness Friday is here- Northern Michigan here we come!

Pillow Obsession

If it were up to me, I would change my pillows monthly but my budget does not have room for that! I was at CB2 last week drooling over these fabulous new throw pillows. They always have such a great selection. Enjoy!
