Ottomans, A Quick Way to Pump Up The Volume

Last night I spent some time with a friend who just moved into an adorable studio apartment.  Of course being roommate fancy free is great, but it also means she's having to create a sweet little pad from scratch.  So, after some lengthy discussions about what might fit where, I was re-inspired to keep up the hunt for my own never ending furniture quests.  Although some recent splurges have left me having to find smaller ways to make an impact (I may have bought a fab lighting fixture from Restoration Hardware yet to be hung...

In a Frenzy Over Fifties Style Full Skirts

So, by now I think most of us have been drooling over the GORGEOUS ladylike silhouettes in Louis Vuitton's outta this world fall ad campaign. If you haven't scoped it out yet, you can see a sneak peek over at lovely Rosebuds' blogs Spry on the Wall and The Girl Who Stole the Eiffel Tower! I'm going to go out on a limb and say that most of us can only dream about owning one of the gorgeous dresses that are featured in the campaign.  No worries...

Fall Trend: Wide Leg Trousers

Hi, my name is Kristin and I'm addicted to skinnies. I've been rockin' skinny leg jeans for so long now that I scarcely remember wearing other silhouettes. That is beyond pitiful. I think it's about time that I switched things up a bit,  don't you? Seeing as wide leg pants are going to be a popular style for fall, I figure that's as good a place as any to start. I've mentioned before that I'm not one to subscribe to trends. I tend to wear what I like...

Caprese Salad Gets A Makeover

Caprese Salad

This weekend my Mom was visiting (Yay! Things always feel so much better she's around!). On Sunday I woke up and came downstairs to find her looking through a cookbook that Kristin sent me a while ago that's all about entertaining. We started looking at it together and found this cute way to serve caprese salad, and since tomatoes are in abundance right now, we decided to stop at a farm stand and pick a few up to give it a whirl.  We both thought it would be a cute appetizer for a nice summer...

Fall Trend: Animal Prints

Happy Monday lovelies. I hope ya'll had fabulous weekends! It rained like cats and dogs here in Tampa, so we were forced to stay inside for most of it. You can imagine how the dude felt about that. No outside play time makes for quite a cranky toddler. I'm looking forward to taking him out today she he can run off some steam. But seeing as he's completely engrossed in his airplane DVD right now, I thought I would seize the moment to squeeze in a quick post. If you've been reading the glossies, you...

Champagne Saturday: Moz the Cat Gets His Drink On

Happy Saturday! Like the majority of the U.S., we're expecting a sweltering day of up to 104 degrees here in Annapolis but not to worry I'm as cool as a cucumber.  It helps that my Mom is in town for the weekend and we're off to a ladies lunch and movie to beat the heat. Of course we may have to include some shopping action on the side! Last night we went for drinks on a roof top of a little Latin bar (can't remember the name because they were just that good) and...

How to Wear Fall Fashion Trends Now. Plus, it’s Kristin’s First VLOG!

Notes about my VLOG: Apparently I invert the word "for" for the word "about" a LOT. Apparently I use the phrase "you guys" a LOT. Apparently I use the word "ya'll" a LOT. Apparently I look like I roll my eyes a LOT.  Oh and holy crap I need to slap on some self tanner and amp up the workouts. I hope that wasn't too painful for YA'LL to watch. HA! So, as I mentioned in my VLOG, I'm starting to pine for Fall...
