hey guys, how was your week? it feels like forever since i’ve been here. guess it’s been one of those crazy weeks where everything started blurring together. if you’ve been reading my blog for awhile you know i’m in miami beach and though i tried to live by the sea here and there, it never was quite right. till today. mes amis, times have officially changed. i took the plunge and decided not to wait for anyone to move with me, make it happen or blame. so i’m thrilled to say i took a place of my own and can’t wait to move in next week! it’s a new lease on life and i’mlooking forward to the future instead of loathing my home. and i can have guests, what a concept! i’ll share more pics once it gets going, but the one below is really all that matters n’est pas? more soon. have great night!
hi guys, comment toutes les choses c’est soir? it’s been pretty hectic around here. getting stuff done and trying to organize, strategize and prioritize. tonight it’s another early shut down. this is just a quick hello and also a nod to those who were searching ‘dressing rooms that look like boutiques’. anyway i vowed 10 pm. signing off~have a great night mes amis!
hey guys what’s up? i’m just dashing in and out, resetting to recalibrate again tomorrow.
i needed some simplicity tonight. this pic seemed to capture the simplicity of nature’s excess.
well, sweet dreams, see you in le stars!
happy easter sunday everyone! i hope you’re having a glorious day.
big love and hugs to mom and dad who are feasting with the family, wish i was there!
i just did a google search on dyed eggs as a quick tribute to the day and learned so much! they want to change the name ‘easter eggs’ to ‘spring spheres’ in one state!
also read about dying with onion skin at passover
i wonder what it is with this time of year and the eggs. guess i could google it. bet mom knows!
it would be fun to dye them according to hard boiled or regular. anyway i’m on my way to catch a sunset so i hope you have a fantastic night and start the week off riGhT!
by the by, here’s a list of natural dye color sources via oliveloafdesign.wordpress.com:
Pink – Use beets, cranberries, or raspberries
Red – Use red onion skins, or pomegranate juice
Orange – Use yellow onion skins, or paprika
Dark Orange - Use chili powder
Yellow – Use carrot tops, ground cumin or turmeric, orange or lemon peels
Green – Use spinach
Blue – Use red cabbage
Lavender – Use purple grape juice
Brown – Use coffee, tea, or black walnut shells
oh and just for fun:
ok gotta hop!
…and then with all your heart, give yourself to it. ~buddha
hey guys, bon weekend. seems like just about everyone is celebrating something right around now. i hope you’re having a good time, whatever you’re up to!
i had to take the past couple days to reflect about life as i knew it and am going to be making some changes and improvements. if you know one thing about me it’s that i rarely stop working. then again, work is also my hobby and keeps me traveling, shopping and even blogging.
having been at it non stop for years found me falling into a rut last week. and there’s nothing like tax time and the hindsight of the past year to really put it all into perspective. you know how they say if you do the same thing over you’ll get the same result? that’s pretty much what i want to change. starting with saving up. and spending time on philanthropy.
i want to step it up bit, create multiple streams of revenue. but i don’t want to get a second job and everything i need is at my fingertips. i’m into the cliche, work smarter not harder.
you may be wondering what all this stuff is. well it’s energy, movement, chi as they say. i’m working on a project with liz and maybe you too. it’s simple but effective and thy name is…ebay!
tReS un-glam i know, but a great outlet and world platform. and no one is unemployed as long as there’s this venue and has some stuff lying around the house. truth is i haven’t touched my account it in years but here’s the challenge. we’re going to list 5 items per day, more if possible, to clear out, buy and sell, all while donating to charity.
mmm k? so liz got me started and is going to work on hers this weekend. if you have extra stuff laying around, it’s the perfect yard sale. is there anything you’re saving up for?
well, i’m off to list my 5 for today. i believe in 3 months i’ll have a down payment for a house. is that a challenge? join us! remember the guy who traded a bean for a house? or something like that! have a great weekend!
if you set up shop i’ll list you too!
hi guys, happy friday! i hope you’re getting ready for a beautiful spring weekend and spending some time in the sun.
happy earth day and thanks mother earth for all the beauty you bestow on us every day with your delicate balance of earth air, fire and water.
i think i’ll try to make something really happen in my neighborhood, not just for today but for the future. it’s sinful that in miami beach recycling is almost non-existent and apartment buildings and restaurants are not required by law to do it.
instead of complaining about it, as of today i’m going to do something about it and make some noise starting with my own building and favorite haunts.
i’m glad to share the planet with you. this is our time and i hope our legacy is one we can be proud of! bon weekend mes amis!
hi guys! how was your jour? i’m popping in and out with my final burst of energy before winding down for the night. i wanted to announce the winners of the posters from yesterday based on the random number generator and they are (drumroll)! entries 11, anna and 24, isabel! i just went to both of their blogs to get the links and they’re chock full of goodies, i’m looking forward to exploring them and all of you who said hello. i wish i had posters for everybody! i’ll see if i can get some more fab pieces from allposters.com for another giveaway since this was fun to host!
pour c’est soir i’m signing off to spend my last hour with a book and leave you with these images of floating sur les fleurs. bonne nuit!
allo cheres friends, what’s happening? i hope you’re winding down and chilling out which is just what i intend to do. i don’t even want to count the numbers of hours on my computer today. that’s enough. i’m off to read a chapter of something or other.
Oh but first have to announce a giveaway from allposters.com. they sent me two of these posters and in person they’re adorable.
if you’re interested in one, leave a comment and i’ll draw the winners tomorrow night.
have a grand nuit doing whatever you want!
hi guys, what’s happening? for the past couple days i’ve been kind of whiny about working on you know what but thankfully it’s all over today and i’m finally free!
but my new lease on life is going to have to start tomorrow. three hours in hnr block wore me just about out!
so tonite i’m not getting creative, just taking the top search term which was ’18th century decorated walls.’
since i’m personally obsessed with gorgeous french paneling on walls, i had to take the opportunity to toss out some pics to whoever it is that’s searching. to me these rooms are life sized cakes with creamy of frosting!
i love to share my passion for it
it can just be a door or frame
tone on tone
it’s a great form of expression that’s ever evolving and totally personal.
well, enjoy your night, i’m off to dreamlamd. see you there!
