Windy City

 
I just applied for the Windy City Burlesque Festival. Oh my! I do hope I
am accepted! Not only would it be fabulous to perform in the festival, but
my best friend lives there currently and the festival is during her birthday!
I began the day very calm, collected, and organized, but since I sent my 
application I've become a bit frazzled and silly. Is it crazy that I am already
thinking of the outfits I'd like to pack to take with me?  I'd love to pack this
ensemble! I love the odd pairing of the stripes with the tan with the straw
hat. It's surprisingly fabulous. Can I take it as a good sign that it's a little 
blustery today in Austin, Texas?  

Have you ever been to Chicago? To where do you reccomend I be a tourist
in that great city?

7 Spring Favs : Easy Must-Do's

What I love about spring is that it's flirtatious, it's peppy, and it's easy. It's energetic and exciting in a way that's rambunctious in a good way. In fact, I find myself wanting to be all of those things as well.  



Flirtatious, peppy, energetic, exciting, and rambunctious! 
It's May and before spring melds slowly into Summer, I always like to capture the bouncy moments of the season while I can!

Before the summer heat creeps in, now is when I love to

1. Eat meals out on the porch
2. Take phone calls in the garden
3. Take walks immediately after spring rain has hit!
4. Change out my linens to bright colors and light textures
    - duvet cover
    - kitchen towels
    - table cloth


Because scent is a major part of spring I also love;
1. Big bouquets of fragrant flowers

2. Using really lovely floral cleaning…

{5 Ways to Add Old Hollywood Glamour to Your Home}

Five Ways to Add Old Hollywood Glamour To Your Home:
1. Mix metals - Whoever said metals shouldn't be mixed hasn't glimpsed at the magic that happens when a room is filled with gold and silver details accompanied by mirrors and crystal. The result is a beautifully opulent room!

2. A fur (or faux fur) throw - Tossed about on a chair or couch, this room accessory makes any snuggling instantly more glamorous.  (This luxury can also be in the form of a pillow or rug.)

3.  Color Pallette - The go-to-never-fail feminine color pallette tends to be camel, ivory, and soft pink. I'm a fan of also adding small bits of blue here and there (it adds depth.)

4. Art deco lines + Plush furniture - Balance out more comfy couches and chairs with sleek, art deco pieces like tables, bar carts, coffee tables, mirrors, etc.

5. Have a bar set with alcohol, crystal glasses, and an ice bucket - What ALWAYS happens in every hold Hollywood movie? A cock…
