Playlist: Makeup Obsessed

Lately, I find myself reading beauty blogs and following Instagram accounts like make__up__madness and thebeautyacct.  I’m lusting over shadow palettes and brush sets.  So, I thought I’d share a few of my recent purchases.  The palette above; however, is a great palette from Coastal Scents that I’ve had forever.  And clearly, I love looking at […]

Playlist: Stormy Weather

Some things I’m loving this week… Spring is such a transformational time of year and it’s a juxtaposition in extremes – on the one hand full of color and flowers and new life but on the other hand it also brings with it a darker side.  Living in Texas, Spring brings with it storms of […]

Playlist: Spring Colors

Some things I’m loving this week… This Hive vase from West Elm, loved the look in this arrangement by Crystal Palecek of Rue Magazine. I stumbled across these bkr water bottles.  I love that they are glass rather than plastic, and come in a gorgeous array of colors.  If it will encourage me to drink […]

Things I Love Thursday

Been awhile since I’ve done a Things I Love Thursday post, so I thought I’d share some things that have been catching my eye lately. I’m so in love with Sarah Jessica Parker. But after seeing this video, I may love her home more. Gray Malin‘s photographs from Antarctica. I’ve been following him on Instagram […]

Things I Love Thursday: Louis Vuitton Spring 2014

My love affair with Fashion Week has gone from NY to London and now to Paris. Oh I cannot wait to be in Paris in February! The photos that started flooding my feed yesterday of the Louis Vuitton show were so striking I knew I had to find a video of the show. As Marc […]

Things I Love Thursday: Birthday Crushes

My birthday is coming up next week, so I thought it would be fun to use this week’s TILT post to show you some things I’m crushing on right now.  Plus, what’s more fun than putting together a dream wish list? Right now I seem to be all about bracelets.  There’s such a fun selection […]

Things I Love Thursday: Summertime Style

Today is the last day of Spring, and tomorrow is the official first day of Summer.  Although here in Dallas it’s been in the 90s already, so it has felt like Summer for at least a few weeks.  Being a Summer baby (August), I love this time of year so I thought it was the […]

Things I Love Thursday: Catching My Eye

Today’s TILT post is going to be rather a mishmash of things that are making my heart beat a little faster this week. Last night the photo above of the Crescent Hotel in Beverly Hills stopped me in my tracks. I’m so completely in love with the hummingbird painting/print above the bed – such an […]

Things I Love Thursday: Bond, James Bond

It’s possible, and very likely, that I’ve mentioned my love of James Bond before. So much so that Eric and I recreated a tasty cocktail in honor of Casino Royale.  I grew up watching James Bond films.  The first one my parents introduced me to was Thunderball.  Both of my parents loved Bond movies, and […]

Things I Love Thursday: butter London Polish

It’s that time again!  And since I seem to be overindulging in the introspective soul searching posts lately, I thought I’d focus on something a little more fun for my TILT post.  For Fashion Week, one of my favorite new polish brands introduced a couple of new colors.  This one is called Fish Wife.  So […]

Things I Love Thursday: The Little Things

I’ve been remiss in my TILT posts, and of course, this one is late too – but better late than never!  I’ve been focusing lately on the little things that make me happy, and finding joy in the small stuff.  So this week, I thought I’d just share a little bit of what’s making me […]

Things I Love Thursday: Chihuly

Well, I missed doing my TILT post last week, and almost missed it again this week.  Of course, with my birthday celebrations, my schedule is a little bit in an uproar, but I decided it was important to get this post in this week.  I’ve been having a lot of fun for my birthday and […]

Things I Love Thursday: Marrakesh Decor

Well, I’m a day late for my TILT post this week, but wanted to post anyway.  As I mentioned in my last post, there’s been some redecorating and rearranging going on at my house.  Well, I’ve always wanted to have a Moroccan-inspired living room, at least as long as I remember.  I even blogged about […]

Things I Love Thursday: The Olympic Edition

Thursday has snuck up on me again!  And now it’s AUGUST!  How does this happen?  Anyway, it’s been almost a week since the 2012 Olympics began and I thought I’d spend this TILT post writing about that.  As you know, I’m way behind on my tv watching, so needless to say Eric and I did […]

Things I Love Thursday: At the Movies

I’ve been working on catching up on my shows on the DVR.  We’re in need of switching out our DVR that’s been acting up, and unfortunately, when we switch out all my recorded shows will be lost.  Sad Panda.  So, I’ve been in a manic show-watching marathon and have finished up Gossip Girl, Grimm, Vampire […]

Things I Love Thursday: Light-Filled Rooms

Recently, I’ve been feeling very frustrated about my home (see also number 3 on this list).  I feel so overwhelmed with the clutter and just sheer amount of “stuff” that it’s making me crazy.  We had a great team over to the house this week to check our house for energy efficiency and where we […]

Things I Love Thursday: Living Colorfully

It’s been a heckuva week, starting with last Thursday.  Just lots of the crazy going on, lots of emotional upheaval and yes, even tears.  I had to have a little come to Jesus meeting with myself on Tuesday.  Today?  Things are much better.  And a lot of that is just because of refocusing my attitude.  […]

Things I Love Thursday: Holiday Memories

I’m really loving my TILT posts.  They are a fun way to focus on what I’m currently loving (to borrow the name of one of my Pinterest boards) and feeling grateful for.  So, today, since it’s the day after Independence Day I thought I’d focus on the holiday and some of what it brought up […]

Things I Love Thursday: Getting Together

This past weekend I was invited to a local get together and I got to catch up with a couple of friends, meet a few in person that I’d only talked to online and also be introduced to some others for the very first time.  Nerve-wracking to be sure.  But, I was so completely honored […]

Things I Love Thursday: Embracing Gratitude

Earlier this week I was having a little mental downtime and playing on Pinterest, when I came across a pin that led me to this blog.  I started reading through her posts, and as is most often the case in life, it was exactly what I needed at exactly the right moment.  Her weekly Things […]
