the glitzy chix makeover

hi guys how are you? i’ve been working hard for the past week and sort of staying under the radar to slay this freakin’ inbox! sadly the daily grind takes up all my energy and i rarely get to do the creative soul food stuff. somehow blogging is my only outlet so thank god for that! as you may know,  my blog friends mean everything to me and are my conscience, inspiration and true beloved friends. if you’ll remember, you were the ones who motivated me to re-do my apartment a couple weeks ago and changed my life.  well i just wanted to share what came of it! the post of my un-done apartment on the blog was the catalyst for the silly video liz and i made for the design sherpa contest. i put it on youtube but you can see it on their site and if you like it, let them know with a comment. hope you get a kick out of it!

    This is so cool! I have a couple of rooms to clear out and I know I will feel like you soon. Now to get that pedi first! Congrats!


  5. M-T replied:

    What do you suggest, Pedi before (motivation)? or Pedi after (reward?) This was soooo much fun to watch. I was expecting to see a bit of bubbly at the end, or did you do that off camera??

    A little Veuve Cliquot makes everything better, n’est-ce pas?

    Lol…good job on the video…looks like you had fun! It’s amazing how much changing your space can do for your head. And your previous post with the gorgeous furniture was absolutely to die for. That armoire with the blue trim goes straight into my inspiration files for the next time I start painting an old piece!

    Bon weekend!
    Hope Ava

    So, basically what youre saying is I need to go book shopping? Yes, yes I do.


  18. Fabulous Finds Studio replied:

    I loved the video, it was so fun and inspiring! Ikea rocks (I bought some fabulous white sheer curtains there for $5 a pair..just hung them in my master bedroom).
    That painting over the table reminds me of one my Dad painted years ago and it had a white frame, too! It brought back good memories for me as he passed away in ’99.
