Amaze Balls

New obsession... La Case de Cousin Paul

How amazing would these threaded ball lights look at your next soiree?!

I adore that you can get creative and pick your own colors...DC loves, here's the deal we can order on line but, where's the fun in that?? Let's pack our bags and make a trip across the pond to Paris and brighten up our lives with these fun lights...Sound like a plan?!

For The Love Of Cooking

This past weekend I attended an event at the Contemporary Art Museum in Raleigh...if you haven't visited you definitely should add it to your to-do list! 
Antonio's Gourmet Market catered the event and oh my deliciousness...the food was out of control good!  One of my faves of the night, a simple fig and goat cheese crostini.

Here are a few variations to try...

Fresh Fig and Goat Cheese

Roasted Fig with Goat Cheese and Honey

Fur Vests...Make that Faux Fur Vests

Throw on a pair of leggings and booties for a comfy yet trendy look, denim for a more casual style, or jazz things up with a flare bottom and go boho chic!

No one rocks the fur vest better than the numero uno fashionista Rachel Zoe!

Etsy Shop Of The Day...

This week I am going with a round-up and a throw back to my childhood!
My very first room was decorated in the darling Holly Hobbie and I had a major flashback when I stumbled across the presh HH on etsy today!

This stuff is so vintage...really makes me feel OLD!

For The Love Of Cooking

This weekend I hope to take a little time to throw a few ingredients in the slow cooker
and make a chili to welcome fall and cooler (but not teeth chattering) days ahead!

What will you be whipping up to welcome fall?!

I Spy...

First off- My complete apologies for my blogging hiatus the past few days as I have been recovering from the nasty funk that is strep throat!  Totally knocked me out and threw me way behind schedule on everything!!
I am slowly working myself back up to high gear today so bear with me as I "catch up".

Ok...Let's get to the good stuff...tomorrow is the first day of fall and your closet should definitely be equipped with lots of plaid as well as other fall trends seen here.

Burberry is famously known for it's trench coat but it's the added royal touch of plaid that most seek with each purchase!

So when the plaid craze hit for fall--my eyes immediately turned to Burberry runway...


Thank goodness they got it right...could you imagine if they hadn't...epic fail!

The Marc by Marc Jacobs Ready-to-Wear Fall Collection

A sophisticated smash!

And if your budget is like mine and you can't quite shop via the runway here are a few hits that won't drain your bank account!

Quote Of The Week

Well that's what we do, we fight... You tell me when I am being an arrogant son of a bitch and I tell you when you are a pain in the ass. Which you are, 99% of the time. I'm not afraid to hurt your feelings. You have like a 2 second rebound rate, then you're back doing the next pain-in-the-ass thing.
So it's not gonna be easy. It's gonna be really hard. We're gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, for ever, you and me, every day...

I am SUCH a sucker for romance... 

Wishing you a week full of love and lots of xoxo's!

Please tell me you're a victim of the beyond addicting Pinterest...I need someone to make me feel better about the hours I spend browsing and pinning!
I literally have a plate full with the launch of the DC Shop just around the corner but, every time I head over for a little inspiration I'm completely sucked in with major tunnel vision for what seems like hours! 
Seriously, It's a major prob-lemo!

Here are few interiors that have me totally inspired but feeling guilty for the time I spent browsing!
