Celebrate Good Times


Wooooooooooo! Today was my last day of massage therapy school! Now I’m just one national exam, one state exam and a buttload of annoying paperwork away from being a licensed massage therapist. Wooooooooooo!

Live It, Wear It

I’m getting ready to do some painting and design stuff in my house in the upcoming months and it’s got me completely fixated on colors. So I’m making the most of it and trying out a new feature, “Live It, Wear It.” Here’s my first shot at presenting a particular color scheme in both home design and personal fashion.

Fey Handmade

Thanks to a post on Bliss the other day, I discovered Fey Handmade.

Inspired by nature and passionate about design, Fey Handmade began as a way to showcase the most beautiful handmade wares available today. Coming to fruition after much planning and hard work in 2008, they began hand selecting unique and inspiring finds to share through their site.

The Fey Handmade team works directly with designers to build a harmonious relationship that can grow into the future. The company started with the belief that great design should be easy to find, and great designers should receive support for all the wonderful things they create.

Well played guy friends. Both of these are full of fail. 


Feeling Bored?

Wednesday afternoon! The work week’s half over! 


Morninggloria’s hilarious area code breakdown or her past hookups had me cracking up at my desk this morning.

The City Sage offers up some beautiful ideas for Thanksgiving table settings. I think this one is my favorite:

If those settings seem a bit too decadent and beyond your price range this year, Apartment Therapy has some tips for a more budget-friendly turkey day

For another way to decorate for the holidays without spending a bunch of your hard earned dough, check out these do-it-yourself wreaths made out of book pages

And while you’re at it, convert those toilet paper rolls into some great wall art.

This is a great idea that I will, unfortunately, never be able to execute. My adorable cat, Maggs, would make quick work of a wall full of thin cardboard.

Today is Veterans Day, so be sure to give a big thank you to any vets you know! 

On a more personal note, today is also my mom’s birthday. So happy birthday to my mama, who is the most wonderfully, fabulous woman in the world and hands down the greatest mom anyone could ever have. I love you Mom! Happy Birthday.
