Back to the beach and randoms

We are so headed to the beach this weekend to meet up with our family for some much deserved R&R. This is going to be the first time that Stella and Billie have been to the beach, so this is going to be interesting. Stella will regulate, save some lives and maybe have time for an ice cream cone. That I am sure of. Here are some shots from last years vacation. Pretty sure this chair will now be a landmark for must have pictures each year. This year's picture will be shockingly different now that I have dark brown hair. Chameleon. Here is one of me and my sistas. 
And all of us minus the boys mom. 
I am furiously working to try to finish our guest bedroom. We have a slew of overnight guests trickling in over the next week and I cannot allow them to sleep in anything but a well styled room. More to come on that. I snagged a few items from Craigslist for a steal. Super great bones, just needed a little fun to its life. A little after to a humble before. 
And the rough before. 
Snagged up two of these awesome Chinese red bamboo tables on Craigslist. Let me tell you something, I spotted these and thought, "I really do not need these and have no where to put them."  I am so glad I told my voice of reason to screw off. Seriously. How could I continue living my life without these in them? Exactly. Sorry for the grainy, hazy picture here. 
So on a stuffing my face note. Things I have been loving and wanting to try lately...low calorie liquid meals. I could have this little number for my dinner. Dinner of champions. I am so anti cooking lately, that even I could master this...I think. 
And who doesn't adore a low calorie cocktail?? If you don't, I don't want to know you. If loving this is wrong, I don't want to be right. 
Desperate for peplum. Still. Will it ever end? I hope not. How fabulous is this dress? Hot pink. Low cut. Peplum. Yes. Yes.  And yes. 

Fabulous neon wood grain, marbled rug. Larving this loud statement piece to pizzaz up any room. 
That freaking Jamie Meares has done it again. I tell you. Can this girl go one day without flaunting her fabulousness? I think not. Another awesome space compiled by her awesome self and awesome team. 

Loving this space by Maria Barros. So bright, cheerful and beachy. 

Back to what I will be doing this weekend. Ok so maybe it won't be this clear and blue but fiction can be fun. 
Love you all!! Have a fabulous weekend. See you Monday!

  2. From Japan. Western women are very fond of Hello Kitty pink from employees. I've heard. It is true.

  19. When it comes to carpet I normally prefer plain ones with small prints. But the one problem with such carpets is cleaning. That is when I prefer rugs like Bois Rugs. But recently I came across a site that provides excellent carpet cleaning service. Its called carpet cleaners valencia. If any one of you are near this area you can try out their wonderful service.
