A unique fixer upper opportunity

Sharon’s been my best friend since before we were both able to pronounce the phrase, and if there’s one point we’ve always diverged on, it’s our taste in significant others: I’ve always had a penchant for the slick, suited professional, while she’s always loved the rugged, handyman/lumberjack-type. (Maybe that’s why we’re still such good friends- no guy drama). Sharon married …

Shade out Flu Season

Murphy’s Law: (defintion): A rule that states that, “anything that can go wrong, will go wrong, and usually at the worst time.” Of all the laws put on this planet by Gods and Men, this particular rule seems to be the one my life path is determined to follow.  After all, I didn’t really plan to get bed-riddenly sick in the middle …

What Happens in Vegas…

I’ve never been much of a gambler and to be honest, I’ve never had any great desire to visit Las Vegas (I’m more of a Santorini/Nice/Capri type of gal), but when you’re the maid of honor at your best friend’s wedding and she decides that’s where the bachelorette party is going to be, you kind of have no choice but …

My Costume for Life

While waiting in the doctor or dentist’s office or leisurely trying to evade unwanted attention at a local Starbucks, flipping through the latest issue of Cosmo or People and seeing the fabulous dresses splashed across every other page has always seemed to provoke the most deep-seated feelings of envy in me, …

Redecorating for Relaxation Every Day

Whether I’m looking for the ideal room at our soon-to-be Caribbean hotel or scrolling through our friends’ recent vacation albums on Facebook to see where they found one, there was always one particular room that consistently popped up, caught my eye, and had me reaching for my travel agent’s number. There’s just something about this room’s décor that is at …

Curtains that block Sunlight & Nosy Neighbours

If you’re anything like me, your moods can run from outrageously outgoing and over-the-top, to privately quiet and contemplative (oftentimes in the same day). With this in mind, living in a house with large windows presents me with a unique challenge, seeing as how one day, I feel like vacuuming the living room in my underwear while rocking-out with the …

Children, Juice & Furniture, Oh My!

Don’t get me wrong- I love kids, especially my sister’s kids. As a matter of fact, one of the things I look forward to the most during the week are those 2-3 hours I get a simultaneous taste of adulthood and parenthood by entertaining two high-octane toddlers with everything from PlayDoh to multiple viewings of The Adventures of Elmo in …
