Quoting Pinterest!

This post is going to be a bit different from the usual.  Pinterest is FULL of funny quotes and words to live by, so I thought I’d share my favorites with you.  Besides getting the best style and design inspirations from Pinterest, you can also get advice and inner motivation.  Creativity and positive thinking all in one place.  I like!

I mean.... REALLY!?

This couldn't be any more true for me!!! I always get the damn words wrong!

Ugh.... I get so homesick. Sometimes there is just no where else I'd rather be than with my mom.

How funny is this?! And so true!!

I hate how true this one is! If ya didn't care, you wouldn't be upset! Such a burn!

Stop making the same mistakes. Gotta learn, don't do it again, and move forward! This is so true!!

In a nut shell... Don't leave the house looking like a mess, put on lip gloss.... because you will run into a really hot guy at the grocery store.

Attention: All Boyfriends!! Read this!! xoxo

Words to live by! Amen.

Pin…Pin…Pinterest – Book Shelves

Happy Friday Lovelies!!

It’s been a little while since I’ve blogged! So sorry for the lack of posts, but over the next few days I definitely will have more posts coming.  My boyfriend is at the Sundance Film Festival and I am REALLY looking forward to a girl saturated weekend!  This means:  Hair color, girl’s dinner, shopping, manicure, blogging, chick flicks… Oh the list goes on.

I am also excited to share with you that I now have just over 1000 Pinterest followers!  Thank you so much for following me.  If you aren’t on Pinterest, please let me know and I can send you an invite!!  You will be hooked!

This week’s favorite pins are great book shelf set ups.  I am in the process of re-working the etagere in my living room, so of course I turn to Pinterest for inspiration.  Here is what has caught my eye so far! What I love about all of these images is that they are homey and real without looking messy.

 

I really like the dark take on this room with the pops of bright.

This room is completely right up my alley, such a great mix of vintage pieces.

Fab dining room. I love the idea of mixing a library feel with a dining/entertaining setting. This is so chic.

Cubbies filled with monochromatic schemes of color. It looks like boxes of solid colored jewels.

A perfect gradiation of shades. I call that a serious collection!

A beautiful room with a great shelf for storage without looking messy.

Matching etageres for books and fab curiosities.

Pin… Pin… Pinterest… Buffet Inspiration for my Holiday Par-tay!

I am throwing a party next Saturday night. I am so excited, but there is a ton to get done before hand.  So, for the next week there will definitely be a lot of posts about entertaining.  I am doing a large buffet bar of finger foods, and yummies – and here is my inspiration that I’ve pinned from my pinterest page.

Do you have any tricks up your sleeve for entertaining? Please feel free to share and leave a comment below! I’d love to hear about your fabulous fete!

Also – let me know if you need an invite to Pinterest.

I love the variation of heights used on this table. The suitcases give it a great vintage touch.

A feminine and sweet buffet set up.

How fun would a caramel apple buffet bar be?!? Love this idea!

This is such a beautiful way to make a salad bar. It's so fresh and vibrant with all of those colors.

I love this idea for for crudete and dips. This is something I definitely plan on having at my party.

Such a good idea for serving tequila (as long as you know all your guests drink it!!)

Love this vintage bar cart for entertaining! Useful, purposeful, and pretty!

A very clean an pretty appetizer buffet. I like the balance.

Pin..Pin..Pinterest… The best of ORGANIZATION!

I try to be an organized person….BUT – there are two exceptions.  1. When I can’t figure out what to wear – I tornado my bedroom and putting it all back is a nightmare.  2. When I am home visiting my parents in Miami.  There is an accent chair right next to the door of my closet, and I just lay EVERYTHING on this chair.  It’s terrible.

But, for the most part – I try to keep it together.  Pinterest has many inspiring ideas for keeping organized and here are some of my favorites!

ALSO – if you need a pinterest invite, leave your email address and I can hook you up!

 

My jewelry drawer is in good shape, but this makes mine look so weak. I love this like you wouldn't believe!

I think this is such a cute idea, especially if you don't have a lot of drawer space in your kitchen. OR you could do this for buffet style entertaining.

I don't love the font used, but I do like how it's all organized by category. This makes it so easy to find products when they are grouped together properly.

If you like to wrap gifts, this is a great idea. You can use a mulit-row pant hanger to keep all of your ribbons neatly in place.

I love these drawer liners from Hammocks and High Tea.

My mom has this in her bathroom and its brilliant. She never has to deal with cords hanging out every where. I do think she has a power strip though and not just a two plug. Still - such a good idea.

Pin..Pin..Pinterest – Window Treatment Faves!

Where are the weeks going!?!  I can’t believe it’s November.  Halloween already ended!

Well – with that…. here are my favorite Pins from Pinterest in window treatments!

I am thinking about puting grosgrain ribbon on the roman shades in my living room.  Just finding the right color is the task at hand.  Window treatments in general are tricky.  Here is some great inspiration!

This F. Schumacher fabric is BANANAS! I kind of want to cover my new ottomans (pics to come of those later) in this. We shall see....

This hallway is in a home in Silverlake (Los Angeles) and designed by Michelle Workman. Love the color combination, the art, the walls... So pretty.

Some serious glammed out dining over at Ralph Lauren Home.

This could be ther perfect Fall look for LA people. Since it's the end of October and still in the 70's. (God, I love living here!)

A pair of these nght stands would fit my bedroom perfectly. Now where to find them is the next question. (Image via Design Manifest).

This photo fascinated me. Can you imagine? What if all light posts had stunning, crystal chandeliers hanging from them?! That would be dope. Image via here.

I have no clue who the designer of this... but that back detailing is just gorgeous.

I love this vintage, Cartier watch. Pretty fantastic if you ask me.

I really want these lamps for my bedroom. Unfortunately they are way out of the budget. via 1st dibs

I love this gift wrapping idea for a wine bottle.

Here are some of my faves of the week!

How awesome are these bronzed baby adidas sneakers. This is bad ass. via the Coveteur.

These jewel tone lamps are stunning, and I love the black shades with the gold lininng. YOu can get a tutorial on lining the inside of a lampshade from the Little Green Notebook. These lamps are from Graham and Green.

These layers of hot pink pillows are amazing!! I love that boho-chic thing its got going on.

Isn't this coffee table fantastic? I love how the organic raw wood base has been spray painted. This would be an easy project!

I love this ledge. I feel like a piece like this would be so versatile. You could make it a bar, and entry way table, a console to go under a television... AND it is gorgeous. Love this. I would love to see someone do a DIY project with this one!! Via Write 20

Love the color combo here. The piping is insane, and the art is awesome. Really well designed with awesome texture.

I pinned this from Marcus Design Inc. This is definitely a look that's right up my alley. Maybe for the new location!?

Who makes this fabric? I want to cover my future living room with this, and some malachite printed fabric too! Obsessed! Such a good floral.

This Gryphon - baja hoodie is AMAZING! Available at Shopbop

Love this wallpaper, the mirror, and the sconces. Gorgeous!

This kelly green desk is awesome, and same with the wallpaper. This really is a great spot to gather up fabulous inspirations.
