"I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick."

Hey There, I'm back again. Mr. Wonderful looked at my post from earlier and in the sweetest way possible, let me know that it was much too short and that I could so do better. And I so can. So here's a little happy news for all you Kate Spade lovers and lipstick lovers alike. I know I certainly am both. Debuting this fall (which is shockingly just around the corner) is a line of lipsticks by Kate Spade and this girl cannot wait. 

Creative director Deborah Lloyd explains, "The Kate Spade girl wears lipstick, and we want to provide it to her." And to that, dear friends, I say "Thank you very much and it's about time."

Kate Spade has already nailed it in my eyes. 
First, the line is called "Supercalifragilipstick!". You had me at hello. 
Second, the names of the four shades are too presh: Pop Art Pink, Fuchsia Fete (my fave), Adventurous Red, and Bashful Blush.
Third, they include Kate's whimsy by adding "Pucker Up" on each tube. I'm in love. 
And did you notice they're gold? It's like they were meant for me. I'll be getting one of each color. Will you?

A Girl's Best Friend

Hello Lovelies! I hope you all are having a very relaxing Sunday as I am. Have you heard of raw or rough diamonds? They are uncut and unpolished, making them really unique and beautiful pieces. 
Here are some of my favorites-enjoy!

You can check out all of the designs here.

The Start of Something Good

As my first ever blog post, I'd like to start with something full of lovely and charm. I have just recently been able to make my obsession with home design and style useful, as Mr. Wonderful and myself are still home renters, but plan on buying our first home within the next 4 months.
So let the fun (for me) and sheer annoyance (for him) begin, as I start taking crazy mental notes of things I swoon and lust over, and quite frankly, have. to. have.
Hims loves me.

It seems so natural for me to start with bedrooms. As the most comfy cozy room in the house, it simply must be my first box checked off of the decorating list when Mr. Wonderful and I buy our love shack.
Here are a few bedrooms that I would trade my first born child for...all of them so wonderful and pretty.

The bed. The rug. The ruffle curtains. The wallpaper. I love it all. And I always love me some Miles Redd.

Again with the bed and the wallpaper. Now throw in the light fixture and this bedroom makes my beating heart be still. Oh, and did I mention this is a child's bedroom. Unfair. If ever a reason to have a child, this bees one of thems. I'll keep this in mind, Nate Berkus.

And then there is something about this little gem that entices me. Probs the wallpaper on the ceiling. Cooky, I know, but I just can't help it. Room by David Cafiero.

 Yes, I know. Way more masculine. It would make Mr. Wonderful happy. But I'll take the trunks and the wallpaper. Perhaps throw in a purple velvet headboard, turn on some Prince, and I would be good to go. Room by Jarlath Mellett.

So let's have at it. What bedroom is your favorite? What say you?
