What's been up

OMG. It is Friday. Thank god. Rejoice. Be glad. My birthday weekend is here. Did you ever think it would come? The big 29 is finally here. I would spend this moment to reflect on my year of 28 but I am not really into that. Just keep on forging ahead and making every day the best that you can. Right? Oh and to not develop any wrinkles on my face this year. Gotta keep that asset fresh ta death. Let's take a look at my week. 

This girl came to visit last weekend. Who might this be? None other than Sam from Peak of Tres Chic. She is everything you would think she would be. Stylish, glam, sweet, witty and beyond inappropriate. Have to say, I am slightly obsessed with her. We did a lot of eating, drinking, shopping and relaxing. Everything a girls weekend should be and more. 
We even met handsome and eligible suitors like this guy. I mean seriously, folks. What can I say? Nice derby hat? 
We did a lot of shopping such as this. How amazing are these beaded globe lanterns from Nell Hills? Pretty damn amazing. 
We saw some KC fashion that was off the chain. Literally. I know y'all are looking for the links to get yourself this outfit. Sorry. It is sold out. Sam was so impressed by our cutting edge fashions here in Kansas City. Who can blame her?
What else has been up this week? Well, some client updates I tell you. If you follow me via Instagram you are already privy to some of these updates. If you do not already follow me, you should. Trust me. The mood is witty banter, inappropriate pictures, glam fashion and decor. I mean wide audience being covered here folks. Anyhow, this space is a space that is in the works for my client. Just missing 3 more pillows, a chandelier, and some minor accessorizing. Home stretch baby. 
This is happening. Again, if you follow on Instagram, you are aware of this happening, although not to this extent. I know you all love updates on my house. Tile is up and all that is missing is the grout and faucets. Think distressed brass, folks. It is going to be super glam, glam. After that, insert the most rad wallpaper you have ever seen and you have got yourself a bathroom. Cannot wait for the reveal on this one. 
Came across this amazing piece of art this week. Starla Michelle has obviously got her artist stuff together because this whimsical piece has had me daydreaming for days. Love it. Need it. Where to put it? Do I care? I just want to get my greedy hands on this piece. Just sayin'. 
My favorite space of the week. How lovely is this room from Collected Blog? I love the fresh yet fun feel with the punches of color. It is oh so larvely. 
My newest favorite fashion blog has got to be BSoup. She tells me it is socially acceptable to dress like a pre-pubescent girl and I believe her. Just look how she styled this children's top. I quickly followed suit. 

So unlucky for you and the young 10 and under girls in America, the first top is sold out. I for one, was able to get one so I will be sure to rub it in when I do receive and style it. I was however lucky enough to score this little dress. I cannot wait to see if it in fact passes the finger tip/thigh rule. I will be sure to report back. Until then, get in while the gettin' is good. 

Tassel Sleeve Dress
Came across this saying this week and could not agree more. I hate people that are insecure in their selves or their own abilities and project that on others. Be your true self, and there is no competition. Don't worry about what others are doing. Just do you. Truly. 
I hope y'all have a wonderful Mother's day/my birthday weekend. I guess if there is a holiday I will share my birthday with, it will involve celebrating the best woman I know, my mom. That doesn't mean that I will suffer in silence though. Love you. Mean it. XOXO
