Droolworthy Lighting

Make sure you enter our gorgeous handbag giveaway! We are now giving away TWO bags and the coupon code has been extended! Now that I've started making inroads in the lighting department, I can't get enough!  I'm picking out cute lamps before I even get to the furniture.  Especially now that we've watched lighting transform the mood in several rooms.  Here are a few bright ideas that are on my radar.

My Kitchen’s So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades

You might remember a month ago when I mentioned we were having a light fixture installed and I was stuck at home with the electrician?  Well I figured its about time I show you what all the noise was about. I absolutely fell in love with this over-sized filament chandelier from Restoration Hardware.  Even with a coupon in hand, it was a bit of a splurge, but we just knew it would make the kitchen pop.  It was installed, then reinstalled six inches to the right (not kidding), and then the ceiling had to be...

Champagne Saturday: Well Hydrated

Happy weekend!  It's bright and sunny and things are looking up.  Although I'm still rockin my PJs, which I'll spare you all a glimpse of.  My trip to Albuquerque left me with a nasty cold.  I'm blaming the woman with 6 kids scattered around me on my Southwest flight, but I totally forgive her.  I mean she had SIX KIDS! ON A PLANE!  A cold is peanuts compared to what that woman experiences on a daily basis, I'm guessing.  So despite my love for the good ol' bubbly, I'm drinking lots of fluids.  And when...

Meg Cohen Design Shop, A Hidden Soho Jewel

Don't forget to enter our giveaway for an emerald handbag beauty! I don't normally hold out on you all like this but I've been keeping a little secret in my back pocket for a while now and its time to come clean. Remember back in August when I went to New York City? While I was there I discovered a little shop that I loved and didn't tell you about. Oh sure I had great intentions to spread the word, but you see I had bought these special herbs there and just hadn't had...

Albuquerque, A Balloon Fiesta!

Today is the last day to enter our $100 LuLu's giveaway! For the past several days I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to Albuquerque, New Mexico for work.  I was able to squeeze in some fun time, enjoying not only amazing weather (85 and cheerfully sunny!), as well as the famous Hot Air Balloon Fiesta and overall gorgeous landscapes. I truly appreciate how lucky I am, trust me! On Friday we took, "THE WORLD’S LONGEST TRAMWAY" up to the Sandia Peak mountain.  And yes, you must bellow out "THE WORLD’S LONGEST TRAMWAY" with arms outstretched.  It’s required. ...

Urban Outfitters, My Party Pad Favorites Right Now

I know I sing their praises often, like here and here, but I truly think that Urban Outfitters is often very overlooked in the furniture department.  Sure, most of it you have to buy online, but it's both stylish and affordable, a killer combo for anyone who is either an apartment dweller or just not wanting to split their wallet on a new side table.  Here are a few of my favorites right now.  Take a look and let me know if I missed anything that you would consider top notch!
