Nightstand Makeover

I’ve always had a thing for thrifted items, particularly furniture pieces. You never know what gems you’ll find. Yes, it takes a little work to turn these loved treasures into something spectacular but it’s well worth the effort. Seven months ago, we bought a pair of nightstand for $20 (!) a piece. After some sanding … More Nightstand Makeover

Holiday Mantel

Hello! Hope everyone had a great weekend. Since we were stuck in the house because of a wintery snowstorm, we were fairly domesticated. Daddy and Z sewed white X-mas stockings while I put all the pieces together to create the most festive mantel ever!  Mantel details: fresh poinsettias + cypress garland, dried pine cones, faux … More Holiday Mantel

Radiator Charm

What a beautiful Saturday morning! Each morning we are awakened by the stir that Zoey makes as she crawls into our bed. Most of the time, this happens at 5:30am. Today, she climbed into our bed at 7am. It’s very precious and sweet. She lays right between us and as the mornings get chillier, it’s … More Radiator Charm

I can’t think of a more inexpensive decor than these paper floral balls.  Here are a few ideas, round-up from my Pinterest boards. Click on image for source.  This is my dream child’s room for Zoey! It is perfect in … More Pom-Poms

Creative Workspaces

Do you have an inspiring workspace? I think creating a work area that’s your zen space is important, whatever style that would be. Who says that our bedrooms should be our only sanctuaries? Wouldn’t it be nice to work and get lost in some of the spaces below? A round up from my Pinterest board, … More Creative Workspaces

Displaying Clothes

One day, I will have the dressing room of my dreams. And in it, will be a rack full of fabulous clothes. Not hidden in the closet, but out on display. As in a work of art.  Here are a round-up from my Pinterest board, Dressing Room, of how beautiful and stylish a space can … More Displaying Clothes

Lights!

It has been a crazy past couple of days. Many life changing decisions. All great and very grande… Anyhow, I’m loving the look of bringing patio globe string lights indoors. How whimsical and just oh so romantic! Just a few inspiration pics from my Pinterest board, Abode. click on image for source What do you … More Lights!

A Saturday With LZM

Hello! How’s everyone’s weekend? So if you’ve been following me since my house hunting adventure, you’ll probably remember that recently we found the house of Our Dreams. Zoey hasn’t seen it yet so yesterday we took her back for a closer look. I’ll do a House Hunting 6 post on it soon but below you … More A Saturday With LZM

Peonies and Parfums

Hope everyone’s doing well! This post is dedicated to all the Lovelies who are tickled by all things pretty and fragrant!  I plopped some peonies from our garden into a gold vase and accessorized them next to a few mini-parfum bottles that my sister sent over from Paris. All these happy things live on top … More Peonies and Parfums

House Hunting 5

Here’s another post from the mini-series, House Hunting! Last week, we visited an open house…again in the Back Bay area and again, another penthouse unit. This one, however, was a lot different from the one on Commonwealth Ave. from House Hunting 3.  It had many skylights and was very bright. Although it was the top unit, … More House Hunting 5

House Hunting 2

Hello! Hope everyone’s doing well. Here’s the 2nd installment of my House Hunting mini-series. Admittedly, the neighborhood was not one that we originally would have considered. Not sure why, b/c it’s still in the city and it has actually became one of our top (if not TOP) areas of choice. I was blown away by … More House Hunting 2

Bright And Happy

We just recently purchased a bureau for a space in front of our dining area. I’m still not convinced that this bureau is the right one but it’ll do for now. I’ve spruced it up with some bright and happy things! Aside from daffodils, I also look forward to the blooming of forsythias. They are … More Bright And Happy

Spring In Bed

Today has been a very productive day. By 11am, I was pretty much done with everything on my list. So of course to celebrate, I brought some very spring stuff to bed. It’s completely a self deserving, bed-lounging, French jazzing sort of day! I have to say, it’s been a while since I’ve had a … More Spring In Bed

A Special Day!

Today is such a special day. Spring is finally here! YIPPIE. I would do a happy dance and take Zoey out to the park if it were not for the snowstorm that just hit us on Tuesday! What I absolutely LOVE and miss the most about spring are all the gorgeous blooms in our garden … More A Special Day!

Friday Tidbits

Today’s post is all about random tidbits. We just made some new purchases (gearing up for my sister’s wedding!)– a 64 GB CF card and a $1300 lens (Tamron SP 24-70mm Di VC USD Nikon Mount AFA007N-700). I can’t wait to try it out! More importantly, it’s better for videos and that’s been on my … More Friday Tidbits

Clean Kids Spaces

Some mommies have it all put together. A clean living space, kids who obey chore duties, an inspirational and tidy home office to work from, and they still have time for other leisure extracurricular activities such as going to mani appointments, lunch dates with galfriends, and date nights with hubs. I’m NOT that kind of … More Clean Kids Spaces
