Inspiration Notebooks

For one of my school assignments, we were asked to create a Inspiration Notebook.  I was so glad to be forced to gather all of my magazine tears into one spot!  I literally have stacks and stacks of mags that are filed away like the above. 

I found a cute binder from Target, and (bonus!) it is 100% recycled!
I organized the notebook into different sections
Home Decor
Special Events
Photo Styling
Color
Children
Holiday
to name a few

Eventually, I want to have a notebook for each section.
And, in my dreams, my office will be filled with the gorgeous binders by russell + hazel.
I am so obsessed with their goods!  They are gorgeous.
Here are a few of my favorite binder colors, but really I'd take them all!


Also ....  
I need advice!  I have just about every single issue of Domino, untouched.  Do you think I should just tear those suckers up and put them in my Inspiration Notebooks?  Or keep them in tact??  I can't decide, I love them untouched, but then I am not able to access the images as easily.

I found the perfect tank to go with girlfriend's new jeans!

cupcake kits

Have you seen these darling cupcake kits by Meri Meri?  They are so darling and make me want to plan a party.  I can't decide on my favorite, but maybe I should throw presley a doggie party since she asks to see "Chloes" and talks about "Chloes"  all day long.  
Translation:  my mom, Gigi, has a dog named Chloe that has stolen Presley's heart.

a first

(this is her asking for more? while she still has some left on her plate)

presley just had her first experience of the deliciousness called a nectarine.
and she didn't come up for air.
so of course i had to document it via the iphone.

a prayer of thanks?

round two.

eat. pray. love.

I am a total bookworm, and a sucker for books that get a lot of attention. 
 Which would explain the Twilight series, and my current read Little Bee.
Eat Pray Love, I had a love hate relationship with.  I just did.  But the trailer, is amazing!  It looks like it is so beautifully made and inspiring, I can not wait!  


Have you seen the trailer yet?  I just watched it twice.

quick pops

This gorgeous weather we've been having has me dreaming of summer.  
I saw these pops, and have been daydreaming of owning the  Zoku Quick Pop Maker ever since!  I can't wait to come up with our very own pops and share them with friends in the sun.

spring break



School is out for Spring!  
I am on my quarter break as of today, and could not be happier to have three weeks of no stress.
Presley and I spent the day jumping on the bed and eating ice cream to celebrate.
xo!

shopping report


Last week I  stopped into BabyGap and saw these.  I had to have them for Presley, I can only imagine her in tanks, sandals, and her mini boyfriend cropped jeans all summer long. So cute.

obsessing

....over some of anthro's new wallpaper! 
 I love the new styles added, and I can't stop thinking about how I want a few in my house ...


I really think I need this one in our powder! perfection.




love them all.

chandi sneak peek

Here is a little sneak peek of my other chandelier.  
She has been sitting in the box in our dining room for two weeks too long! 
I have decided that this weekend I am going to post things on craigslist so we can hang this sucker!
can.not.wait.

And, here is a sneak peek of the chandelier I made for a school project last quarter.
It is hanging in our powder, and I am waiting to share until the powder bath is painted, or better wallpapered!

hot pink

I can not get this image from the latest J.Crew catalog out of my head!  
I am obsessing over her hot pink lipstick, but since I can't pull this off with my coloring, I went searching for it in a nail polish.
(and p.s. any one up for a craft night trying to recreate this necklace?  gorge!!)
Lucky for me I found a perfect shade in OPI.  And, maybe three other new colors I am dying over.  I thought I'd share my new favorites.

 Planet Beauty was having a buy three get one free sale.
(from left to right)
Don't Know...Beets Me, Dim Slum Plum, Lucky Lucky Lavender, and the blue is Suzi Loves Feng Shui.  Yes, blue!  I love this shade, especially on blondes.  

hawaii

There's nothing better than vacationing with a photographer.  
Go here for her posts on our amazing (quick) trip to the Islands.

chevron stripes


I am a long time fan of chevron stripes, which you can find everywhere now! I really wanted to paint the back wall of our Room 2 but could never get the time to dedicate measuring and taping a 13 foot wall ... So I resorted to a painting. I am always looking for a bargain, so instead of buying a canvas that large, I just got a cheap piece of wood cut at Home Depot. This made the task so much easier to be able to paint on the floor and I love the little spots of grain you can see through the paint. I also just used some paint out of the many paint cans I already had in my garage. I was in desperate need of something to spruce up our Living Room, and I was able to do it for $8.00! (price of wood) I still haven't finished accessorizing the mantel, but thought I would still share!

The framed print was my valentine to Dan, I thought it added a nice personal touch to the space.




Also, these gorgeous flowers in front, (not the dying ones ... whoops!) were picked from my mom's garden.  They are so beautiful, I am obsessed!  I went out a bought myself a Camelia shrub already.  It was only about 5 bucks for a shrub, and should grow to be 6 - 8 feet.
