Crazy II


...this slipcover is made entirely of the selvage from fabric remnants...crazy.


Keep Calm and Carry On...

...this is where the poster I ordered a few posts back from etsy landed...over the mantel with a couple of old family photos, my money frog, on the right is a statue that I purchased at the flea market for $8.00 bucks...the one on the left is from my Aunt...took me a couple of years of nagging to get that one...I heart it...

quick and easy DIY decorating tip...

...makes me want to paint this weekend...have not painted since new years...what a cool and inexpensive way to add a little interest to a bland room...collect glass in a single color...the trick here is to get different shapes and sizes and display them in one area of your room, not all over the room...try it.

Interesting info...I came across

A new movie in the works...can't wait to see it

Liya Kebede (left)...She'll be playing Somalian model Waris Dirie (right), who was the face of Chanel Allure perfume and appeared in the Pirelli calendar twice.

The movie, Desert Flower, is based on Waris' autobiography of the same name which chronicles her childhood in the Somali desert, her entrance into modeling, and her role as a United Nations spokeswoman against circumcision.

Waris most recently made headlines for a brief disappearance in March 2007. Another fun fact: She's Iman's cousin.

all about me, me, me...

4 things that I'm wearing right now....


...well I usually blog early in the morning so I'm wearing a long black and white chaftan, a gift from a friends trip to Africa.
...my $5.00, mint green, fake pashmina scarf...cause i'm cold...
...a pair of Laura Ashley cotton, pajama bottoms
...and a really disgusting pair of slippers, they started out a clean slate grey, but after a couple of days, they look like s#^t...note to self, only buy black slippers.

In a Perfect World...

...what a day, what a day...In a perfect world, I'd be here today...wearing this outfit...without a care in the world...

Do you ever think about your life and wonder, "how did I get here?"

...the material excess in the video is too much, but I luv the lyrics...I thought my life would be so different...I understand that I am exactly where I'm supposed to be, but that doesn't make it any easier...I'm just trying to figure out my lesson...

If you don't believe in you, who will?


Today's Musical Selection..

...I came across this video and had to share...every singer on the scene today our who would like to be on the scene one day should be required to study Diana Ross...her style, flawless...stage presence, amazing...vocals, impeccable...orchestra playing live...come on...Makes American Idol look like a junior high talent show...Mini performed last weekend in a talent show at NYU...Mini has no fear of being on stage, but she could definitely learn a lot about stage presence from the Boss, Miss Ross...she will be studying this video tonight.
I've heard it said that everyone should have a theme song, something you can think about to refocus yourself, well, this is my new theme song...I will hum in my head when I need to focus...
"It's my house and I live here"
"say you wanna mooooove in with me, gotta follow the ruuules to get me"
What's your theme song?

...by the way, my alter ego would wear this outfit to Target today...it's deserves a little glamour.

Inspiration...

I think I'll make some cupcakes for the little kiddies this weekend...

1. Visit Target

...saw a project on a blog that I would like to try and that means taking a trip to Target...yipee

2. Buy Drano

...bathroom tub is stopped up...ugh!

3. Stop by Home Depot

...would like to pick up a piece of plywood to make some sort of head board for my bedroom...you know it'll be funky.

4. Visit the supermarket...not my favorite chore...unless it's Trader Joe's

...sister is coming over for the weekend with the kids and I guess it would be nice if there were some food in the house...lol...

5. Pick up money order for car insurance payment before they cancel...

Doesn't that all sound exciting!?

...last night

...hung-out with my BFF last night...it's been a while, she recently had a baby...it was sooooo nice to be baby and kid free for a little grown-up meal and conversation...Martinis, entrees, and desert (see the food porn below)...there was a live jazz band...and I was back home on the express bus by 11:30...what's better than that...no looking for a parking space, no tickets and the weather was perfect for window shopping...When you get a chance check out ZARA...I hear the clothes are amazing this season...My i-report on the recession...there was no sign of recession at this restaurant last night...it was packed...we waited over an hour for a seat...didn't mind...the martini helped...
