Just a reminder about wednesdays...

...just wanted to remind you guys that every wednesday is 1/2 price day at Salvation Army stores nationwide.  Here's a peek at a few things I picked up for Mini last wednesday for just $7.00 total.



Sterling Silver...pretty.

Auntie and Prom Season...

It's that time of year again...Prom Season and my niece is graduating high school in June and has asked me to make her prom dress...Of course she designed it and I'm making it...seems like coral is a very popular prom color for 2012...as well as the back out silhouette...good times.  I went to a mostly all girls high school, so there was no prom for me...What did you wear to your prom? 




Breakfast of Champions

I have joined the green juice craze...blogs are so influential...they wore me down, I got tired of reading about all the great benefits and decided to try it for myself.  Don't judge a drink by the way it looks...yuck! ...this drink is good...no kidding...I thought it would taste like dirt...nope...I feel full, no cravings...and I have more energy...Give it a try and let me know what you think.  Mini tried it too...she said it taste good...but, it's not something she would just make on her own...lol.   Oh, only if mommy make it?

This is what I put in mine...I don't stick to any recipe...I use whatever is in my fridge...today it was baby carrots, handful of spinach, a pear that was going bad, a squeeze of lemon, a little water and ice....blend it up and viola...3 servings of fruit and veggies in one meal...

Read all about the benefits of drinking green juice here .

Randomness...

 ...you know I love a picture wall...

...I need a green maxi skirt...so cool...you gotta see all the thrifted "swag" (sorry Mini) I picked up yesterday.  So good...it was 1/2 price Wednesday...more on that next week.

 ...you know I'm getting a white couch...and I love the number 7 pillow on this sofa...



...this is what I look like in my dreams...smile.  Cute.  The hair is perfection...the jewelry...UGH!

...loving painted furniture.

Luv these girls....The Olsens...too much style for one family.  I need, need, need the white dress...sigh...the hair makes me want a weave...lol.

...how simple and lovely is this bed...another example of how style is not about money...it's about feeling...

Random Mini Photo

Mini doing her homework...she is such a good student...she came home all excited yesterday because a tough teacher gave her a 95 on her essay. Smile...so we went to the movies to celebrate. We saw, Think Like A Man...It was cute...Kevin Hart is an idiot...too funny.

Look of the Day

Jacket - thrifted
Bag - thrifted
Pants - discount Store
Top - forever 21
Shoes - nine west

The lamps have landed...

...remember my thrifted lamps?  Well, they made it into my bedroom last week.  For now, i'm using a pair of old lampshades that were hanging around in my closet.
...that's my $20 IKEA headboard...Don't get excited...it's been discontinued.  I hung it a little higher on the wall...It was out of scale with the lamps...now it's just right.  The crochet blanket was a gift from my mom...Love.
...the lamp is resting on my thrifted table...remember that?  $9.99 and I painted it white...I love this piece...it has tons of storage and right now it's holding fabric...

...remember the red and white pillows I made from a pillow case...? Love.
...hiding out on the mannequin is a robe I made a while ago.
...One of the thrifted painting I found...temporarily resting on my painted bookcase.
...quick photo of my make shift dressing table...UGH!  I really, really, really need a new camera...these pics are bad.

Another Case of Design ADD

...sigh.  I just got rid of the huge cabinet in my living room and look what I see...sigh...I can't, I want one. I come across old china cabinets all the time in the thrift store...for nothing...sigh.  Painted black, wallpapered, imagine it with IKAT wallpaper or ZIGZAG...break out the windows...put your flat screen in...sigh.  Another case of Design ADD.  I just love the finals on the top...you can always add them if your cabinet doesn't have them...sigh.


Imagine the cabinet with this wallpaper...sigh.
Go bold or go home...love. 

Okay, if you follow my blog, you already know...I'm drooling...I need this pattern, color, texture in my home...

Video Tuesday, No time to work out?


Okay people, it's that time of year...you know, your checking the mirror for fat damage that was done to your body over the winter...smile.  Me too.  I'm thinking about joining the gym...more on that a little later in the post...Walking around IKEA is just not cutting it...So, I was lurking around the internet when I came across this wonderful site, LUVBEINNATURAL...just what I was looking for.  Her videos are well made...clear and so easy to follow.  Check out this video to see how she puts together 7 days of  healthy lunches and dinners in 1.5 hours!  I wonder how many pounds I could drop if I did this for a week?  I'll test it out and let you know.  Please check out her workout videos...brilliant.  She shows you how to work out at home without equipment...sigh.  Before Mini, I was a gym rat...I went to the gym everyday afterwork...before classes...I love the feeling you get from working out hard...the sweat...yes.  Now, I can't get up the energy to even lift a weight...but, that's gonna change.
...as for joining the gym, NYC runs a network of public gyms located all over the city...some nicer than others...some with swimming pools, rock walls, you name it...You can join for just $150.00 for the year or $75.00 for 6 months (It's Co-ed)...and that gives you unlimited access to all the gyms and classes all over the city (and your kids will go for free, that means Mini can go to the gym for free, YES!)...there's one up the street from my home...ugh...I'm so lazy...I need to join, like today.  Until then, enjoy the this site.

I'm back...Sigh...I was internet challenged last week...


...please forgive me...I had challenges with my internet service last week.  You have no idea how much you can get done when your internet is out.  LOL.  So much has happened in a week...for one, I sold my couch...WHAT!?  Yes.  I am that much closer to the new white sofa of my dreams...well, if not my dream, my current desire anyway.  So forgive me if this post is overloaded with white sofa inspiration.  My next sofa may be new...may be thrifted...but, it will be cool...and it will not cost a couple of mortgage payments...I can't wait to go shopping.
