I have a thing comfy cozy clothes - to be worn in the privacy of my own home of course :) This outfit from Athleta fits the bill perfectly for a chilly day, leg warmers and all.

Hair Obsession


I think I might have mentioned this subject on here before, but I have an obsession with hair. Some girls look through magazines and drool over the clothes, me, I am a sucker for luscious locks. In fact, I have an entire board on Pinterest dedicated to hair.



This image from one of my favorite sites stopped me in my tracks this morning. How does one get their hair so shiny? My husband would say "Um, try washing your hair more than 3 times a week". Pfft, I loathe washing and styling my hair. BUT if a stylist told me that daily washing was the secret to shiny locks I might change my tune. So if you have any tips on shiny hair, please share!

Finally Fall


After months of consecutive 100+ degree weather I am glad to welcome fall. I look forward to wearing boots, layers, cardigans, you name it!

This past weekend I was inspired to break out the fall decor. Here are some pictures of my dining table in progress, still needs a few more things. I am proud of myself seeing as how I am not that crafty.

Catching Up on My "Stack"








Yes friends, my stack of magazines still lingers. I must admit that I am cutting down on my subscriptions, regardless I still have plenty of good reads. One magazine that continues to surprise me is Better Homes and Gardens. This was the first magazine I think I ever subscribed too, back in college. I could not wait to get out of the dingy college housing we had and into a "home" that I could decorate in my style.



Over the years I subscribed to BHG off and on and more recently only subscribed because I received a killer offer of something like 1 year for $5. I also get all the high end shelter magazines to drool over but as of late, in my opinion, BHG has been on target as far as style goes, less DIY and more designer like features.

Case in point is this home featured in the September issue, designed by Tia Zoldan. Tia, you have a new fan.





I found this picture of the same room from somebody's personal photograph (attending a baby shower in the home). I like to see the difference between real life styling vs. professional styling for photo shoots.






LOVE this kitchen eating nook!






Tia also has a blog and interior design site. Here are a few of my favorite looks from her portfolio.





I love the layers, artwork and non-matchy-matchy look of this room.






LOVE this kitchen that was also featured in one of the High Glass eMags.
