A Color Study — Black

As of late, I’ve been having a love affair with the color black. I’ve never had copious amounts of bold hues in my home, but you find pops of pink, green and every shade of blue if you have a look around. After creating Potty Paradise, my love for the dramatic, moody effect the color black has on a space made my heart grow three times.

Here are a few things that have either made it into my shopping cart, or I’m wishing Santa would bring me…yes, I said Santa in June, I’m sorry. But it’s only because I’m in love with a pair of Gucci shoes that I’m going to have to save my pennies for.

Beautiful Distractions No. 5

Mercury Retrograde has made me want to Amazon Prime a helmet to my front door, sage my home and hang heeling crystals all around my body. As soon as my accountant started yelling at me about my taxes last Tuesday and The Boy’s travel plans got majorly snafooed, I knew something had to be afoot. Do you believe in Mercury Retrograde? Do you do anything to twart the confusion? I think I’ll just stay in bed, shop online, and watching the remaining DVR episodes of Little Big Lies.  I wanted to finish reading the book first, but didn’t have the patience. Confession…I’m a slow reader….I don’t know why, but it puts me to sleep. I also heard I need to This Is Us. Here’s what else I’m loving lately.

Let’s Talk Swimsuits —The One Piece

Anyone else in the I hate shopping for swimsuits boat? Raise your hand high. For me it’s worse than going to the dentist on the 58th floor of the airport…the dentist, elevators, and planes are enough to make me grab a bottle of vodka and hide in my closet. Mix that whole batch of awfulness together, and you got my attitude towards shopping for swimwear. There’s nothing quite like walking into a fitting room with 27 suits in hand, sausaging myself  into each, and inevitably leaving empty handed with a frowny face.
