A Kitchen Makeover — Let’s Play Pretend

Confession, ever since I visited Cambria, I’ve been dreaming of a kitchen makeover. Not that there’s really anything wrong with mine, but…Pinterest, am I right? Some gals want diamonds, others tropical beach vacations…me…I long for a beautiful stone waterfall island, new countertops, a killer backsplash, and cabinetry that’s to die for. Damn you Pinterest!

My Life In The World Of Unemployment – An Update

If you’ve ever lost your job, then you know it’s a flat out traumatic experience. This was my third… no fourth time in the world of layoffs. And no, it’s not because I am a sh*tty employee. I’ll have you know, I rarely called in sick, if ever, and I never, ever missed a deadline. So why all the layoffs? Oh how I wish I knew. Maybe it’s the state of the economy, or the world of advertising, maybe I just made poor decisions in employers. Either way, it’s been a few months since I’ve written anything regarding the emotional state of my career, so here goes.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel And Her Mid-Century Style

Now that I own a television that can easily stream from the internet, I feel like a whole new world has been opened. A few posts back I shared a few new to me shows I was either binging or discovering…I know, I’m a little late to the game…but, one happened to be The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. I started watching the night that post went live and am presently obsessed with her Mid-Century home decor style…so bewitched, that sometimes I forget about the story line and just nerd out over the furniture. If you’re a lover of 1950’s interiors and fashion, read on.

Do You Drive Your Partner Bonkers?

I’ve now been unemployed for six months. Six months of not commuting into the city. Six months of being in the the house with The Boy. Not sure if you know this, but he works from home…so that means we are in each others face 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For the most part we get along very well, but there’s always that little something your partner does that drives you bat shit loon balls.

Shopping For Bedding — White Sale

If your read my last post, then you already know the New Year is THE time to wipe the slate clean. January is all about getting organized and giving your home a refresh. It’s also the time to keep your eyes peeled for the ever popular White Sale. I for one have been on the lookout for some deals on new bedding for the guest room.

Over the last year, I’ve been trying to perfect that messy yet cozy looking bed in this space. Do you know what I’m talking about? The perfect “Pinterest” bed. Mixing and matching patterns, combining linen with cotton. As you can see, it’s pretty much been an epic fail. I’m ready to give up. It’s just not cohesive. One thing I’ve determined problematic is the bright white looks too stark against that earthy leather gym mat headboard. It needs to be warmed up. Maybe a blush or gold or ivory?
