Crushing on Kirsten Kelli

Love muffins! How was your weekend and Monday? I am just going to throw it out there, my Monday was pretty unbearable. I pretty much threw my hands up mid-day and decided I was just going to call it a day and try again tomorrow. That being said, I feel a little crank still. What gives? I figured chilling with you all this morning and looking at some majorly attractive interiors would be just what the doctor ordered. Only time will tell...Today is a new day. It's hotter than hell. My cleaning lady is coming. It's a Tuesday (so the club is going up). It is a recipe for a perfect day. 

I always love coming across new to me design talent. Thank the lord for the worldwide web. Kirsten Kelli is errrthang your eyes could ever dream of and more. I am talking luxury. I am talking texture. I am talking color. If I am permitted to have a girl crush this fine Tuesday morning, I am picking the dream team of Kirsten Kelli. It is no mistake and of no surprise this dynamic duo is from the big D. That Dallas I tell you, they crank out some stylish people. Anyhow, enough of my verbal nonsense this morning. Lets get our Kirsten Kelli on.

Memorial Day Sale Shopping

Happy Memorial day love muffins! First and foremost, I want to say thank you to everyone who has ever served this country. Your bravery and patriotism made America what it is today. It has also parlayed into a lot of online retail sales. Obviously that is not what today is about, but it is an added benefit, no? 

Alright. Apparently we live in Seattle now here in KC, (it has been raining since the beginning of time) and there is nothing left to do but shop. Since I am not one for playing in the rain, I am going to round up errthang you need for your home right now that is on some super sale. 25% here, 40% there.  I am feeling a major boho vibe right now, just follow along and treat yoself.

My new jam: Minted

Yo, yo, yo. Happy 3 day weekend, y'all! I am coming off of a week of travel and prepping for a new week of travel. Life on the road, I tell you. My laptop crashed this morning, so I am coming at you with a new and improved computer. Nothing like starting a 3 day week with a computer prahhblem. Enough with the small talk. 

So I was doing my typical Saturday design planning and was on the hunt for some affordable and fabulous art and came across Minted. This place has every type of art you could ever imagine for bargain basement prices. I am talking abstract, photographs, paintings and graphics. You name it, Minted is on it. In addition to art and shiz, they are even featuring invitations and stationery. I mean, this place has got it all. One stop shop. Well for your walls and your prison pen pals at least. 

So I am going to put my money where my mouth is and give you an extensive list of what I found. I am a giver like that. Get it all.

HMK for your mama and a giveaway

Show of hands. Who is scrambling on what to get their mom for Mother's Day? (Both hands in the air). I mean what to get for a woman that has everything? Sigh. I go through this routine year after year, and never does it fail that I am a week out from the big day and I am empty handed. Thankfully my peeps down at HMK asked me to come take a look at what they are working with and I obliged immediately. The quintessential shop for every woman, girlfriend and mother. They have got it going on. I am talking tassels.  

And more tassels. 

The best of fragrance, candles and decorative soap. 
Stationery so your mom can write ALL of her penpals. (Hopefully not one of those prison ones.)
Largest collection of Kate Spade errrthang. Gals. KC is the home of Kate Spade, so naturally she is going to be well represented. 
And all of the KC specific apparel your heart could ever want. 

Or a little of this and a little of that. How cute are these wine glasses and tray? I mean, she does. Hard.


See what I am saying? My mom will definitely not go empty handed this weekend. For all of you KC, Denver and Dallas folks alike, I have got something hot for you. HMK has so graciously offered to give one lucky S+S reader a $50 gift card. Spend it how your heart desires. On your mom. On yourself. But mostly, on your mom. Enter below and make sure you get it done before this Sunday, May 10th. Love you. Mean it.

Monday Musings: Lilac and Green

Guess who's back? I will give you one guess...So in all seriousness, I know that I always make this huge commitment that I am going to come back in a major way and get my posts to you on the weekly. And then I fail. In an epic way. This time is different. I swear. Creative juices are flowing, I am making the time AND I sincerely missed blogging. Blogging and I were in a relationship and our status could be best described as "it's complicated." Long story short, I am back. Better than ever. Armed with projects and inspiration. Standing O? Slow clap? Ok. Golf clap? Missed you lovers. 

So while frantically rushing to put myself together this Saturday morning for my weekly visit with my Grandma, I came across a color combination that I don't think I can ever quit. You know when you pick the first shirt off of the top of the clean clothes hamper and throw a hooded rain coat on top to prevent you from looking like a total drowned rat? Well with those ideal elements and conditions, a star was born. A color combination star, that is. Lilac and green, folks. More specifically, lilac and army green, but who is counting? There is just something about the softness and femininity of the purple hue coupled with the strength and vigor of a dark army green that absolutely works. It is the yin and yang to my wardrobe and now to the home. Watch out Monday, we are coming in hot with lilac and green. Getcha some feminine meets masculine flair.

Dress your tech: Beach Dreaming


If y'all don't follow Design Love Fest by now, I suggest you get your ass in gear. Not only is she the most creative and has the best inspiration, she also has a segment called "Dress Your Tech"  where she is all about jazzing up my boring backgrounds on my electronic devices. Thank you babe Jesus. Anyhow, I am beach day dreaming (I leave for the Dominican this week) and these below are polluting my mind. Get on board. My only reason to get technological. Hope y'all are having the best weekend ever. No really.

Valentine's Wishes: Peak of Tres Chic

Hi all!  Sam here, from The Peak of Tres Chic, guest posting for my best gf Lindsay today in honor of the holiday of love.  You may recall Carrie Bradshaw so eloquently saying, "Maybe our girlfriends are our soul mates, and guys are just people to have fun with."  Well, I happen to believe wholeheartedly in this sentiment!  So this Valentine's Day, I propose we spoil our best friends and ourselves to a little something special.  Here's what's on my wish list (in case any of you are wondering- wink wink!):


Shop My Valentine's Wishes:


Halston: Inventing American Fashion Coffee Table Book $47/Sephora False Eyelashes $10/Monogrammed Cocktail Napkins $42/Petite Black Lace Bodycon Dress $68/Mega Babe Keychain $14/Steve Madden Fringy Heels $130/Small Tassel Earrings $58/

I've been dying to purchase this Halston coffee table book after eyeing through it at a local Houston decor store.  I would give anything to don a Halston gown and party at Studio 54 with Andy Warhol a la 1970.


False eyelashes work wonders and my favorites are the $10 pack from Sephora.


Give this keychain to all the boss ass babes in your life!


I love anything monogrammed, and the cocktail napkins from Design Darling are available in a wide range of monogram styles and colors.


Whether you are going on a hot date this Valentine's Day or just partying with a few friends, a LBD and sassy heels are a must.



Any big plans for the holiday of love?

Thanks for having me, Linds!

XOXO,

Sam

Kate Moss in the home

So, show of hands. Who used to think Kate Moss was a complete degenerate junkie? Hot. Mess.  I mean, I grew up of the same opinion. I never quite understood why anyone ever thought she was glamorous when I always thought she looked one high away from rehab. And hygiene? Forget it. I am talking hypodermic needles and baths once a month when she could fit it in between benders. Gurrrrossss. Could I be more specific? Well, I am here to tell you that I have completely changed my judgmental opinion of the once named "Tank." 

As I have gotten older I can appreciate the solemness of all of her work. She is deep, pensive and most of all, thin. I am talking rail thin. As they say, can never be too thin. She is such a unique beauty and once she started getting her shiz together, I have now decided her work is showcase worthy in my home. I am on a serious hunt for her most glamorous and somber representation. Preferably one of her smoking, because like it or not smoking is enchanting (even though I never do). Get down with your bad self, KM. Check out some of her best.

Monday's Must Haves

My lovely ladies, happy 2015! I am only two weeks tardy on delivering that bit. I promised myself, and you all, that I am going to be more consistent in posting this year. I have a lot to say and share but I just need to be better about organizing it. Even when I am traveling. So this is my promise to you betches. Hold me to it.

Let's kick this year off on S+S with a current must have list. You know I am 'bout it 'bout it. I am talking from a rug that can be repurposed as a DIY headboard, to a peacock chair that is going to go on your sun porch for the Spring/Summer season (Yes those seasons really do exist and are not part of some fictitious fantasy. Rull dull). I am your pusher and I am pushing all of the below. Get it.

Shop KC Local: HMK

You guys. You know I love a KC Local post like woah. So for those of you who are not aware, Hallmark is based out of Kansas City and they have recently stepped up their gifting game and opened HMKHMK is a one stop gift shop that has the variety you need for any shopping trip. I am talking culinary accessories, home decor items, gifts for the bros, the gals, the kids and even the necessary gift wrapping accessories. On point, y'all. So I decided to go in and see what this was all about and treat it as a one stop shop for the peeps I still needed to cover for the holiday season. (Don't tell them I am running behind). Let's check it. 


Gifts for the bros...
 Gifts for me...isn't that allowed? 
More gifts for me....these are Kate Spade lookalikes my dears. For a better price point, ya heard? 
 Gifts for the KC lover...
 More gifts for me...again. 
 Of course we have a Kate Spade tribute wall. This is KC, folks. We made Kate Spade.
So here is what I ended up with. Couple gifts for the gals, a flask for a bro in my life and maybe a gift for me.
A gift, ok maybe two, in action for yours truly. 
If you are in KC, I suggest you check HMK. If you reside in the big D (Dallas) or the not so big D (Denver) you have lucked out and can check it out there. Happy last minute shopping, loves!
