If you haven't checked it out - get over there pronto! Today they posted an article about styling your entryway:

They offered a lot of great tips and it's making me want to class up my entryway ASAP!

I've been swooning over the toast rack turned letter sorter trend and Nancy from Marcus Design did an awesome post several months ago featuring some great examples:

This last image is from Nancy's own entryway and I love the fact that her toast rack had a little spot in front for keys, sunglasses, change, whatever! I've been checking out Etsy and look what I found:

That's the EXACT one she has! You know I bought that sucker in under 3 seconds. Her's doesn't have the little milk glass trays (or she opted not to use them) but I'm undecided on if I'll take them out.

Looks like I'm on my way to a well styled entryway!

Window Shopping Wednesday

The only wedgie I like is the one that my feet wear. Here are a few (budget friendly!) options:


Update! Love these as well...tiny bit higher on the price scale and of course I love them the best...

Window Shopping Wednesday + Look for Less

It's time for

I'd love an orange Hermes Enamel Bracelet:

But since I'm not a crazy person who spends $610 on a bracelet (more power to you if you happen to be!), I think I'll settle for this:

Similar look, way less!

In the Home

You know what I love? Leopard.

On the wall:

On the sofa:

On a chair:

And now my newest addition:

Please ignore the crummy iPhone picture. Oh, and the obvious clashing leopard love seat. Obviously these two will not be going together. The package came while I was at work (yes, I have a leopard love seat in my office-WINNING!) and I just couldn't wait till I got home to see what they looked like.

I purchased two of these:

Happy Monday Pretties!

And furnishings:

Have a wonderful weekend!

Window Shopping Wednesday

Here I was all gung ho to get back into the bloggy swing of things when suddenly, over the weekend I was hit by some crazy bug and which took me out of commission on Monday and Tuesday. Seriously, I can't remember the last time I felt that sick...not cool.

Now back to your regularly scheduled broadcast...it's Window Shopping Wednesday!

It's Alive!!!

My blog that is. Hard to believe I haven't posted since April of 2011. Yes. 2011. How Lame-o of me. In my defense, the past year has been a serious challenge in the personal department including but not limited to work stress, weight gain and a four year long emotional roller coaster of a relationship. But things have come full circle and now work is on track ( potential big promotion if I can pull off the bazillion projects slated for this year), I lost the weight and I'm single. Hooray for me!

Now that the woes of 2011 are behind me, I can look at 2012 with fresh eyes and a new spirit.

For all those not blessed to live where it's currently warm, here's a little sunny weather inspiration for your weekend:

It feels good to be home!
