Design: Inspiration Room > Living Room


This inspiration room from ZGallerie had me at Hello...
I'm obsessed with the dresser.  Isn't it so GLAM??  
And I love that they are using it in a living/family room setting instead of the 
predictable use in the bedroom.  What do you think?  

Do you like the green chairs with the green sofa?  Or is it too matchy?

Could it be true?? Cupcake Vending??


Word on the street is that Beverly Hills Cupcakery "Sprinkles" is installing a 24/7 cupcake vending machine.  Lord please tell me this is true??  Women across the West Side are rejoicing.  Let's face it....women crave these cupcakes like its their job.  I don't hear guys around the office saying "Man I could really go for a Sprinkles cupcake"  It's true.  

Let it be known that my favorite is the Red Velvet.  Don't speaketh to me whilst I am consuming said cupcake.  Consider yourself warned. :-)

Marie Claire's Horoscope - Scorpio

Just read my horoscope in the back of Marie Claire's March 2012 issue.  I'm a Scorpio.... It reads:

"Neptune dropping into your house of creativity will spur you to delve into your expressive side: 
Start a BLOG or take up an instrument. Opening your mind will also affect ROMANCE, 
be it writing an online dating profile or amping up date night.  Ditto for your career.  
With some nurturing, a hobby may turn into a paying gig."  

WOW!!  Big Smiles on my face after reading this.  I started this blog about 30 days ago with the intent to tap back into my creative soul that had been dormant for entirely too long.  My curiosity leads me down this new creative path and I'm looking forward to seeing where it leads me.  Join me won't you??

Beauty: Glam Glow Mud Mask


 I've had problem skin for as long as I can remember.  Phases of acne, oily skin, large pores, brown spots as a result of the acne and now (lucky me) fine lines.  Today, I was introduced to "Glam Glow Mud Mask" at the Simply Stylist event at the W Hotel in Hollywood.  The up-sell was that Glam Glow was used behind the scenes at American Idol and the show "24" and the celebrities raved how it smoothed their skin for many days after using.  It is also used (per the website) in Bliss Salons, and numerous spas in Las Vegas.  Glam Glows main ingredients are Volcanic Rock, Real pieces of Green Leaves, Purified Clay, Cucumber and Ivy.  So, being a sucker for anything that promises to even out my skin, shrink pores and remove impurities I bought said mask.

It's Gonna be one of those days

Remember the children's book "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day"? I'm afraid I'm off to a similar start to this day.  Was up at 4am with irritated boss calling me from a cold and rainy NYC running late to his first meeting that will no doubt make him late for the next 5 meetings up to lunch where we hope to get back on track.  Whilst in the shower I cut both ankles shaving (Can I get an "Ohhh Noooo" from the ladies??" then I proceeded to drop my eyelash curler in my coffee and then my hairbrush into the toilet (certainly glad it wasn't my flatiron...) Wish I had a picture to share with you of the horror that was my hairbrush in the toilet but as you can surely imagine I quickly fished it out and tossed it in the trash.  (Can you really get it clean enough again??)  

This day needs to turn around quick!!  I have a date tonight!!
