The sun is shining, and I am getting spring fever! I am thinking about the tan I wish I had, and that the sun wasn't so deceiving, it's still a bit chilly. I'm lusting over.........

Those of you who read this post know I was very excited to find out I had been featured on the front page in January. My shop opened on December 29, 2008 and I never expected it to be featured that early on. While I was ecstatic to know I had been featured, I really wished I could have seen it. The last couple of days I was a little bummed to not be in any treasuries. Other than outside the etsy world I had not been getting much "etsy love." I found out through Craftopolis that I was an alternate in two, but nothing more. It's funny, when I clicked onto etsy last night, I noticed this really cute stationery and was thinking-once my new blog starts getting views like my previous one, I would like to feature their shop.I hadn't intended on scrolling all the way down the page, I really don't know why I did...but I had the biggest shock when I saw my Daffodil print being featured! If you're a seller on etsy, you know how HUGE this is. It really couldn't have come at a better time either with my grandmother ill again, it's been... Continue reading

House Beautiful Oh how I want this beautiful vintage buffet. It's black, gold which just happen to be two of my favorite colors. I swear no matter where I go, I am always drawn to pieces in this color combo. I claim that turquoise and purple are my favorite colors, but if you look in my closet, my handbags, shoes, etc...everything is black and gold. Oh and that pink chair, doesn't that just look gorgeous right next to it? I love the white matted frames on the wall. The color on the walls looks fairly light, I'm not sure if it's a light blue or white? All I know is I want this room. Love, love, love it!!! Continue reading

I was watching Oprah a few Friday's ago, as I became glued to the set. If you aren't familiar with Oprah's Friday format, she has Mark Consuelos and Mrs. George Stephanopolous aka Ali Wentworth as part of her panel. This day they shared photos of Ali's home which were featured in Elle Decor. I fell in love with this room, it's everything I wish my future abode will be when I am a rich journalist/businesswoman. Did you know that Wentworth created the swirls on the rug on her own? She stated on Oprah that the rug was stained, but instead of getting rid of it, she bought ink at her local grocery store, and designed the swirls on her own. How I wish I was that talented! Elle Decor Continue reading

I have been in love with Deconstructress etsy shop for months, in fact I wanted to post her items on wordpress months ago, but since I was moving I postponed it. I am happy to finally post her work, and it makes me even happier that her shop is the first in my ongoing etsy shop series. Thank you Deconstructress for allowing me to feature your beautiful custom gown line! Here's a brief bio on her shop: Deconstructress states; "My gowns are created from scratch or by piecing together sample wedding gowns. I use new and old materials. Many of my gowns are hand painted using a variety of techniques to create wearable art. My inspirations come from art, literature, film, music, nature and anything else that I can interpret into a piece of clothing."

In the words of my Uncle, "Candi, get out of the sun...you're going to melt." I think I'll just stare at these relaxing outdoor photos and hope for better, cooler days. Have a great one!

I've always been a big fan of buffets and credenzas. Could it be that they remind me of my childhood and my grandma? Probably so. She stored everything in hers from family photos, her brazilian embroidery, loteria games (Mexican bingo), and momentos. I've always been a busy body, finding new things and information has always been my thing...hence my lifelong dream of being a reporter. In the words of my grandma, * "esculce, esculce". While hers was not as extravagant as these, I could totally see myself digging into either one!

If I'm "going all out" this birthday week, I must add this Chanel beach cruiser bicycle with the black quilted seat, and briefcase. Even though, I don't consider myself a "little dog" kind of person, I have always loved Yorkies. Lucy Goosie would totally kill me if I brought another dog into her territory. Isn't this little dog, just the cutest? The photo was taken at Moscow's first ever Fashion week for dogs and cats. Knowing me, I'd probably adopt them all! See you tomorrow, when I will officially be a year older, and hopefully wiser! ;) Chanel Bike- guess the price! I want this extravagant puppy! Yorkshire Terrier- Russian Catwalk Continue reading

For the last five years ripped, distressed or just plain torn jeans have been MY thing. I wear them with anything and everything. From dressy tops, to long sleeved sweaters in winter, I'm more than likely never without my distressed True Religion's. My almost 89 year old grandma on the other hand can't get her finger around it. I make sure if I'm wearing my jeans, it's when my mom is babysitting her, as she never lets me live it down. "How much did you pay for those things?", "It's time we buy you a new pair", "I wouldn't have given you five cents for them", "You paid how much?" Yes, my grandma is right...I paid how much for them? It makes me feel that much worse when I'm forced to hear it a million times over. I know it seems silly to pay this much for jeans, but thankfully they last forever and ever. Thank God for my metabolism. These on the other hand, would really cause a stir with my Abuelita Margarita. Talk about beat down. If you really care, and are interested in purchasing a pair or two of a** baring jeans, they're from Saks, are D&G... Continue reading

While I see and hear feathered headbands are all the rage as of late, I for one am not following. No offense to those of you who are into this trend, I'm terribly afraid of birds, and to make matters worse I am typing this before bed. Holy nightmares. Anyhow, I have been searching or googling for that matter "black headbands", "fancy headbands" and anything else I can think of in order to find one like this with NO LUCK. Photobucket Has anyone seen a black headband that resembles this one that the uber stylish Posh Spice aka Victoria Beckham is sporting? Loves it! Continue reading
