Sparkle and Heels

It's amazing what a little sparkle and heels can do for a girl. Last night the hubby sprung a night out last minute giving me no time to get ready. I just threw on my 5 minute face, a top with some sparkle, my fav Louboutins, and Vuala! Ready for a night on the town.

While I'm running around in shorts enjoying these warm california nights, the east coast is awaiting the wrath of Irene. My thoughts and well wishes are with everyone across the country.



Ok, so I know it's crazy but my bed probably has a larger wardrobe than some people. What can I say? A girls got to have her beauty sleep and nothing is worse than an uncomfortable bed, trust me, this last trip I went on I found myself dreaming of Shabby ruffles and white.

I sleep on nothing but Shabby Chic Couture poplin cotton. The reason I live by this bedding so much is 1) It's perfect for those lazy people who don't always make their beds, (I'm definitely one of them) because they look just as beautiful unmade or messy. When I do make my bed I throw it together so it looks a little disheveled. I'm all about the beauty of imperfection. You will not see me ironing a duvet! I've got better things to do. 2) I swear the more you wash, the softer it gets. My oldest sheets and pillowcases are the most comfy.

My entire house is comprised of white or neutral staples (bed, dresser, couch, etc.) and I bring color to my rooms through accessories. This is especially true in my bedroom so that anytime I change my bedding I get a different look.

I start with white walls,
A white bed,
A white dresser,
A white mannequin to display pretty things,
White curtains, and a crystal chandlier
My side table is mirrored, I have two white chairs instead of night stands, and a white lamp. Everything else changes, and changes often.

Now for a peek at my collection.

Here is what you will find on my bed:

A flat and fitted sheet. I have both white and prints, but all of which are subtle so they really can go with any duvet.

A Down Comforter with a duvet cover.
The Duvet is usually the star of the show with everything from my goto white ruffle, white linen for colder nights, red for christmas, and fun prints for when I'm bored.

Two down and feather pillows sit beside my bed that are used for sleeping.

An oversized body pillow
Seriously nothing beats the pillow. I challenge you to find one better.

Two oversized Euro Shams
Love a colorful duvet with white shams and vice versa...

Last but surely not least is my adorable boudoir.

As you can imagine, the combinations are endless. Here are some of my favorites.

Classic White

Pretty in Pink

A little floral here

A little Blue there

Hand embroidery
My fav...

As you can see I like to switch up my shelf above my bed as well.

What's your favorite?



Yet another song and music video I'm obsessed with! So glad I got to see the LOUD tour live.

Makes me wish I was a rockstar like RiRi....


Ketchum is one of those super high end resort towns so I went preppy for my free day. Of course I had to mix it up a bit with some spikes on my one shoes and lots of bracelets.

Ok so I love the look of these shoes. They add a little something to a classic loafer, keeping your look a little edgy. The soles are super soft and comfy, but the back has killed!! I have blisters on the back of both ankles. I am hoping they need a little breaking in, because I don't want to have to bring them back to Nordies. I'm obsessed with the way they look!


Ketchum Idaho Photo Journal

Sorry for the lack of posts latley! I was gone for a week in Idaho for a wedding and then Vegas for a little fun before my summer vacation is over. I wanted to dedicate a post soley to my time spent in Ketchum Idaho. So often we travel far and wide over looking so much of the beauty America has to offer. While skeptical at first, I was pleasantly surprised by what an amazing place Ketchum turned out to be. Many of you may have heard of this area because it was where Bruce Willis and Demi Moore lived when they were raising their children. I was blown away by the beauty, wonder, and sense of community this place had to offer and am so grateful I had a reason to go. I'll be back Ketchum.

The Bride chose a set of dishes and we each painted a piece.

Haha this tripped me out....

A beautiful Rehearsal dinner at Christina's.

A beautiful wedding.

Vera Wang.....

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Olson!
