Happy Friday - Free Stuff...


I have two coupons to share...I heard about this one on OPRAH, it's for PAYLESS Shoe Stores...50% off the entire store...but, you gotta be quick...it's only good until the end of TODAY!




I hope I can find this boot in my local Payless store.

It's by the clothing designer ALICE + OLIVIA...LUV! If I get it for half price it's just $25.00 bucks...

AND

Head over to your local Victoria Secret and get a free bra fitting...(you know we all wear the wrong size) and they'll give you a free tube of lipgloss...Yep, free...just click the coupon link below...




So happy...

quick and easy party decorating ideas...

Luv, luv, luv, everything about this room...tone on tone

I'm heading to Atlanta this weekend...apartment shopping, neighborhood shopping, putting my feelers out to see if it speaks to me as a town that Mini and I could live in...

My Work...8 year old boys bedroom

BEFORE
AFTER
My wonderful 8 year old client wanted a red room...As a designer I know that does not mean paint all the walls red...I kept all the walls and floor a cool grey and accented the room with pops of red. That way when he tires of it, it's easier to change the accent color than painting the entire room again. The pops of black really ground the room and will stand-up overtime to the bumps and bruises of an 8 year old boy....He loved it. I luv my job.

Easy D.I.Y.

...paint the back of an Ikea - Billy bookshelf a vibrate color like this red...instant character.

Dreamy...

...long weekend...gotta go to work and put together a clients room today...8 year old boy...pictures to follow.

Today's Musical Selection...Turn it up...It's the weekend...



...change in my weekend plans...Mini and I will be at Ikea and working this weekend.

Nice...

I sometimes come across Buddhas this big in HomeGoods; now I know what to do with them...luv.

Smile...

...luv the fabric on these chairs, fun.

Sofa Crush...

...not sure where i found it...just luv it.

Finally, something worth watching on t.v.

Show: Daddy's Girls

Why I Watch: Good girls, fashion, fabulosity and they luv and respect their parents...What's not to luv?...Plus, they grew up in our neighborhood and that makes them real to Mini...I like the girls style, they're cute, hard working, smart, independent, friendly and they listen to their parents...Everything I want Mini to see...When we watch it Mini gets to see what life could be like if she works hard and listens to her parents...fun will come...

When: Not sure, we watch it on MTV on demand.

Show: Lincoln Heights


Why I Watch: Not your typical Boyz-N-Da-Hood type drama...actually, the only black drama currently on t.v. It's family friendly...deals with timely topics and allows me to have meaningful conversations with Mini without either of us feeling awkward. I like that the show portrays the black family in tacked and loving, not dysfunctional...and even though Mini can't see that at home, I want her to know that it does exist even if it is just a television show.


When: Monday at 8:00 p.m. on ABC Family Channel




Show: Brick City




Why I Watch: It's real. A documentary about Newark, New Jersey, it's citizens and it's new, young mayor, Corey Booker. Watch them struggle to take back their city, one episode at a time...Mini and I can't stop watching...just watching it makes you want to get involved and do something...it's directed by Forrest Whitaker...




When: Not sure, we watch it on demand on the Sundance Channel






Show: Man Shops Globe


Why I watch: I get to watch the buyer for my favorite store, ANTHROPOLOGIE travel the globe and shop. Nice work if you can get it...


When: Wed. at 10:00 p.m. - Sundance Channel



Show: Cougar Town
Why I watch: To get a laugh while watching a single mom get back in the dating game...which sometimes means dating younger men...who doesn't want to see that.

When: Wed. at 9:30 p.m. on ABC



Show: Flash Forward
Why I watch: Imagine the entire world blacks out for 2.17 minutes and when you wake up you know what your future holds...the good the bad and the ugly...Very diverse cast, Courtney Vance and Gabrielle Union. Plus, it comes on at 8:00, a perfect time to watch a show with Mini.

When: Thursday at 8:00 p.m. on ABC



Show: The Modern Family
Why I watch: Funny, funny, funny family situations... grandpa's re-married to a hot Latino, the dad in the "traditional" family thinks he's a rapper or something, and then there's the gay family, two men who just adopted a baby...Not the typical in your face stereotypical humor...It's really smart and makes fun of everyone while showing everyone in their best light too.

When: Wed. at 9:00 p.m. on ABC



Show: Numbers
Why I Watch: Got tired of Law and Order. This show is smart and I'm all into coincidence's and numbers and how they can effect our day to day lives. The cast is diverse, the writing is clever and you never know how the show will end...and it's full of moral issues...the characters are really interesting and well rounded.

When: Friday at 10:00 p.m. on CBS


Not watching much HGTV...it's boring...all the shows are about selling or buying a house...UGH! I just want to see how people live in their homes...Mini and I still watch our favorite, SURVIVOR, just on demand...

You know I luv a good shelf...

I am the shelving queen...my home is full of them...I can't help it, I luv display. I found this image on Apartment Therapy and can't wait to try it in my bedroom...which by the way, went through a little make-over this weekend...

I'd feel right at home here...


Love the crazy chair and rug, the floors...the mix of styles is just my style.

Images of Friday's Dream Home...

Photos from different homes...I'd luv to put them all together in one house...the perfect living room, bedroom, kitchen and dinning room.











Goodmorning...

In a perfect world, he'd be at my house right now having tea... YUM. Oh, no time for fantasy...going into the Emerald City today, client meeting.

Be Inspired...

Simple elegance...luv it...may even make it.
