On Second Thought...

At $85, this one ain't too shabby...and it's in great condition. No cracks. Thoughts?!

Yay or Nay?

I've been searching for a swag chandelier to put in our kitchen area above a tall pub table and just stumbled upon this potential purchase on Ebay...after less than five minutes of searching, this caught my eye.  Should I pull the trigger or keep on truckin'?
Pro: $40
Con: The glass globe has a pretty large crack.

I Dunnooooo...

The Bloom Lounge Chair, designed by Kenneth Cobonpue, is inspired by the graceful blossom of a flower, however; it reminds me of something completely different. The chair is sculpted by hundreds of fine running stitches radiating from the center of the seat creating a subtle textural feel. Come on, Kenneth, you couldn't have chosen a prettier color such as purple or fuschia or even a gorgeous ombre? You really thought flesh-colored screams 'graceful flower'? Really?!

These Tiles are Bananas

Yes, I am channeling my inner Rachel Zoe when I say these tiles by Italian design firm Graniti Fiandre are 'Bananas'...

Kimber Modern

This past weekend I went to a girlfriend's Mad Men themed bachelorette party at Kimber Modern, a chic and minimalist bed and breakfast off of South Congress Avenue. It was a swanky scene and mighty fine time...until our partay got shut d-o-w-n. Apparently the managers frown upon 11 women having a subdued evening in the courtyard. At 8:30 on a Saturday evening. On South Congress Avenue next to a live music venue! WTF? Anywhoo, below are some photos of the space and some lovely pics of moi and the ladies.

Unlike traditional hammocks, this one constructed with seat belts gave you a sense of security and there were no pesky hammock accidents.

My friend Kiah set up Mad Men-era drink stations with adorable drink recipe signs.

The lovely ladies and moi.

Oh, look! An Arne Jacobsen chair.

Oh, Look! Yours truly in an Arne Jacobsen chair.

Top 5 photos by Alison Zavos, the rest were taken by me.

Hello, 34!

Today is my Birthday! ...and despite the fact I still have to spend all day at the office (instead of at Sephora) and my dear sweet hubby won't be able to share my special day with me today, I still feel like this on the inside...
