Happy Hallow's Eve!

I've had a great weekend with my family doing all great things Halloween. These are the pumpkins we did last night along with a pumpkin pi, chocolate cookies and ginger cookies. I always turn to Martha Stewart of course to get some rad ideas for Halloween. Here are my favs from this year and last year.

Wish I was a butterfly this year. This was too cute. Wish they made peacock eyelashes...
This was my number 1 fav idea this year. So simple yet so cleverly cute.

 Happy Halloween! Have fun, be safe!

Dia De Los Muertos

Dia de los Muertos is a Mexican and Hispanic holiday where instead of mourning the dead, you celebrate the lives they had. Children bring toys and adults bring tequila and or jars of etole. Some families build altars in their homes with christian crosses and pictures of family members. 

Flowers all over the cities for the festivities. 

While at Comic Con in San Diego earlier this year, I came across a cute booth, Skeletown. Very talented illustrations where the story line and characters are based on the day of the dead. Check out some of their cute merch. 

Feliz Dia de los Muertos. Que en paz descanse.

Movie Inspiration - Pretty in Pink

One of my all time favorite movies! I watch this movie when I need inspiration or when I am down or just when I want to smile! Love it. I was born in the eighties but do not remember when this movie came out. I must of not even been born, but this is what I think Andie's home might look like now with a touch of 80's.

Enjoy the one and only Ducky! Singing his poor heart out to his love. "I love this women". If you haven't seen Pretty in Pink, take a moment and frown at yourself, then head out and buy it!

Pitcher & Piano Bar - England

Every day we get a little bit closer to summer '12!!! Why is that on my brain today? Because we are so excited about going to London for the Olympics. I know I know, London again. But I totally want us to check out the Pitcher & Piano bars. They have got a ton and I love this one in Deansgate Locks designed by Macaulay Sinclair.

Sorry for the lack of bloggin. Life had gotten busy for a second there. Work is going amazing and being the president for nextGEN, RDI student chapter, has taken up a ton of time. Not to mention Halloween parties, family and friends. But I am back on track!

Cascading Chandelier

This chandelier in this entry way is absolutely gorgeous.  This photograph of this home is too perfect. The monochrome with a touch of color and the natural elements. Beautiful. I cannot wait to own our own piece of land so that I can make it look this fabulous.

Hallow's Eve

Halloween is almost here and I am attending a masquerade themed party at a friend's home. So excited but now confused. I started off wanting to be a peacock, but now I am leaning towards Cleopatra. I bought a beautiful top for my outfit but I feet it looks more like Cleopatra then a peacock! Either way, can't go wrong. Check out some awesome mask ideas for Halloween costumes.

Lisa Perry

How cute is Lisa Perry Styles?

She is obsessed with 60's and 70's pop culture. She started her line after getting so many compliments on her personal vintage pieces and style.   

This dress is so pop! The colors, the blocking, the shape. So cute

This dress has an elegant element to it, yet I feel like I would be so comfortable in it.

I love pea-coats. Enough said...

And of course! Why wouldn't the girls from Pan-Am show up at the Fashion's Night Out shing dig at Lisa Perry's Store!

Love it!

Lisa Perry also has home accessories such as this cool pillow.

Check out her homes!!! Too cool...

Such cute childrens room. I wish my room looked this cool. Even if I had to share it, I wouldn't have cared.

Beautiful view, beautiful outdoor furniture.

It's like a museum of art or color. Love.

Love her use of color. 

Happy Designing.
