Hmmm....maybe I'll get out there..... some day. I tried to surf once. It is so difficult! Those surfers make it look so easy.

I think it's so cool to see surfer girls out there rockin it!

Barbie looks pretty good for 50

Barbie's 50th anniversary recently just past and she had a fashion show at Bryant Park to celebrate. Some photos from the show via Elle magazine.

50, really? Barbie, what's your secret to staying so young ;P


Pool Party Barbie

One of my favorites! I would love to wear this one out on the town. Love the blue gloves.

This dress is so cute.

Retro Barbie.

This is Dianve Von Furstenburg. I want this dress!

Birthday Party Barbie!

Summer Barbie!

Some of the outfits are a bit too pink, even for me. But they are just so fun! You rock Barbie!

Oh La La

Remember when I was looking for a headboard for the spare room here? I recently found a beautiful one! Although, I really wanted to have a pretty color like pink or blue, I opted for a cream tufted headboard with a satin material. I have fuchsia pink curtains and I thought a colored headboard would compete with them. After weeks of searching for just the perfect one, I found it at Target of all places. Hey, I'm a budget babe ;) I have to say, it looks very elegant and expensive. Score!

What do you think of the headboard?

I am thinking of painting this room. I have a white desk with bright turquoise chair seen here. And the duvet cover is light aqua/torquoise (it's hard to see that in this picture). I want to keep the room looking light, airy with just a few splashes of brightness. So I was thinking of a white or a very light color like aqua? Any suggestions?

So Retro

I came across these kitchy retro posters and magnets and had a good laugh.

This one's pretty funny to me because my boyfriend is a neat freak and loves to cook. Me, well, I used to eat cereal for dinner ;) I am getting better.....

Perfect timing for this one.

I love this one!

This one's my favorite! I had it as my Myspace quote for so long.
Have a fun filled weekend full of lots of laughs!

Kitchen Makeover

photo via northern sun

My boyfriend and I are repainting the bathroom and kitchen. We finally got a new floor in the bathroom and we are waiting to get a new wood floor and counter tops for the kitchen -please land lord hurry! Right now the kitchen is just cream. It's kinda boring and plain. I moved into my boyfriend's place awhile back and have been trying to make it cute ever since. It looks so "bachelor". Ugh! Once I make it pretty, I'll post a photo of it.

I love a room that's bright and airy. I am thinking of light color for the walls, probably blue and painting the cabinets white. The below photos are my inspiration.

I love the splashes of bright color. So cheerful!

This kitchen is so roomy. I love that table. Way too big for my place.

Our kitchen is more like this size- tiny. Aren't those bar stools so stylish?

Ooh, I love the bright breakfast nook next to the bay window. What a great place to eat breakfast or drink some coffee.

I love the bright yellow wall.

I think the light blue color in the photo from my Barbie's Dream Home post here would be perfect! What do you think?

V Day Hangover

So my Valentine's Day was sweet: flowers, cupcakes and dinner. My honey bought me beautiful fuchsia pink roses from a local shop. They make me so happy every time I look at them.

I bought him some Sprinkles cupcakes. My favorite ;)

I personalized it with a little love decorations. And yes the Sprinkles sticker is perforated. I just couldn't help myself, I had to take a taste before I got them home ;)
Hope everyone had a nice V day weekend :)

PS. Happy President's Day!!! I have the day off work -soooo excited!

Will You Be My Valentine?

photo by thisisbossi via flickr

I am so in LOVE with Robert Indiana's Love sculpture in Philadelphia, at Love park. How fitting for the city of brotherly love. Did you know that this sculpture was on loan for many years until a potential New York buyer was interested (they must have offered some big bucks because the city tried to buy it severly times but was turned down). The peeps in Phili were in an uproar when they heard the news. Because they loved it so much, Eugene Dixon, a businessman and chairman of the Phili Art Commision bought it and brought it back. I wonder how much that cost. Interesting story....well, I am glad it's around for the public's viewing. If I ever go to Phili, this will be my first stop.

These photos were from New Year's Eve 2009 and 2008. I was about to laugh in this picture.
Me and my boy toy ;)......okay, well maybe not boy toy more like serious relationship boyfriend for many (many ;p) years.

I love V day, but I definatley think its more about the person you love rather than gifts (well, maybe a small gift). So if you have a signifcant other, tell them how much you care and seal it with a kiss!

Hope everyone has a Happy Valentine's Day and Wonderful weekend!

In lieu of the big V day coming up, I was browsing for some hot and sexy (or at least pretty) make up looks. My favorite look is the smokey eye/pale lip (preferably glossy). I'm addicted to light colored lip gloss. I'm sure I have over 50 tubes of gloss, pretty much all shades of pink.

This look is sexy but still natural. And we know how guys love that ;)

I love the electric blue shimmer on the eye.

I think this one above is my favorite. I would make the lips glossy though ;)

I usually am not a fan of red, well at least not on me. But when done right, it looks gorgeous.

So pretty. I like it glossy and with the bare eyes. This one's my favorite red lips.

Not really sexy but still cute.

I DON'T recommend trying this one out for V day :p
