They Say When You Go Black.....

Black is and will always be one of my favorite colors. It works well with everything, and has such a sophisticated feel to it. It's such a dramatic color that it will always make a statement in a room. People love to wear the color black because it's such a chic and bold color. I don't you about you ladies but I always feel a bit seductive in all black. Make a bold move and bring black into your home, it can be used to make a strong statement when done properly. I'm doing a really dramatic makeover to my bedroom and of course black was the first color in my design scheme. Bold, Seductive, and Sophisticated, yep sounds like me.

Make A Simple Throw Pillow

The first thing I want to do when I'm switching up my home decor is get new pillows. A nice pillow now a days can run you anywhere from $20.00 to $120.00. I don't know about you but I tend to change things up quite often in my home and at $120 a pop that can get pretty pricey. Well today I'm going to show you how to make your very own throw pillow, so you can keep a few dollars in your pocket. Also this Saturday I will be teaching a decorative pillow making class over at Home Fabric's & Rugs if you are interested in making pillows for your home, family or friends and would like a live demonstration come on down. Home Fabrics & Rugs is located in the city of Torrance, Ca on the corner of Hawthorne & Sepulveda Blvd. The class with begin at 12 noon and last about an hour or so.

Winter Vacation.... Lake Tahoe

With summer coming to a close it's time to start planning for a winter vacation. The Ritz Carlton in Lake Tahoe is the perfect getaway for some cold, snowy winter fun. Now to be honest with you, I'm not one for the snow. My sister has been trying to get me to snow board and I just have not mustard up the courage to play in the snow. Lately I've been feeling a bit braver than usual so who knows I just might try it. While searching for places to visit I came along the Ritz Carlton in Lake Tahoe. This Hotel is what a luxury winter vacation should consist of. It's loaded with spectacular views, fine dinning, spa services, beautiful rooms and lodging, and snow as far as the eye can see. So if you’re looking for a winter wonderland getaway this year, I think Lake Tahoe is a great choice.

Fall Trends... Get the Look For Less

With Holiday season right around the corner, most of us want to change up our home decor to suit the season. Missioni at Target has a great home decor line to spruce up your place this fall on a budget. The combination of fall colors and funky patterns make for a great look for less. Adding a few new pieces can create an entirely new space. I love the warm brown tones mixed with cool blues, one of my favorite color combinations. This look has trendy fall decor written all over it.

The Fanny Pack Is Back....

Does anybody remember when fanny packs were the must have accessory back in the day. We thought we were the coolest kids on the block due to a small little pouch that strapped around our waist. We would carry virtually everything in the house in that fanny pack and didn't need at least 90% of it. Then the day you saw your grandparents in matching ones headed to the family picnic was the day the fanny pack died. At least that's how it all went down for me. Well the Fanny Pack has reemerged with new life and I'm loving the new style and playfulness of the revamped fanny pack. Now if you know me, you know I am in the process of making one of my very own. These new fanny packs have inspired a new look for my morning hikes.
