Designer Spotlight: Nate Berkus

Have you heard the news? The latest and greatest of TV and design…Mr. Nate Berkus himself now has his very own show for all to see!!! (Find the Episode Guide HERE). I have always been a huge fan of Nate’s modern yet warm and inviting style and so I couldn’t wait for the premiere of...

CB2 and The Selby

Ok, folks…I’ve got some exciting news! You remember this guy…Todd Selby, a photography and style inspiration. Well, I have the chance to meet him!!! Maybe…hopefully! But I need your help. CB2, a hip furniture and decor company specializing in all the best of modern furnishings, is hosting a contest in collaboration with The Selby. The...

Rue, Right Around the Corner

In case you missed it, the very exciting news of Rue Magazine’s first launch sneak peek hit the web last week. AOL’s Shelter Pop wrote a wonderful review of the magazine’s much anticipated launch this September 16th. You may remember Crystal from Plush Palate and my guest post for her a couple weeks ago. Well, she...

On to the Next!

For my regular readers who have been keeping up with my travels to the Minnesota Fringe Festival, I’m sad to say that our adventures here have come to an end but on the same note I’m happy to say that I’m returning home. It is bittersweet, for sure. During our stay in the state of...

The Bigelow Chapel

As many of you know, I am currently in Minneapolis, MN touring with Shelter Repertory Theatre for the Minnesota Fringe Festival. It has been a fantastic experience and inspiring artistic retreat! I wish it would never end…but I guess change is growth, so onward and upward. Aside from dancing with a wonderfully talented and delightful...

The Walker and Our Place

Exciting news (in my world)! We unpacked the last box and hung the last picture (almost) in our new place on Saturday and I took the time (*read-got distracted from packing) to take a few pics of the place. I was feeling very inspired by The Selby and now I’m feeling brave and want to...

Suiting Up

Today’s collection is inspired by the continual state of living that I seem to find myself in…suitcase living. Ugh! And Monday I’m off to it again, this time adventuring in the city of Minneapolis, MN. I will be touring with the Shelter Repertory Dance Theatre (a modern dance company that I have been a member...

New Environments…Blank Canvas

Ok, so it’s been a while…seems like ages. But David and I have safely arrived in our new home of Fort Worth, TX and, after a long week of crisis management, we are slowly settling into our new environment. Of course, as you can imagine, I already have grand schemes and plans for our humble hacienda...

A Day to Celebrate!

Well, for those who have been following me on Twitter and/or Facebook, you know that the past few days of our move to Fort Worth have been, to put it in less dramatic terms, a challenge. But some of the worst seems to be passing behind us. Thank goodness! And just in time for my...

HOPE…Moving Forward

Hope “To arrive, contemplate, enjoy, learn, copy, try, devastate, destroy. There’s still hope.” Considering the scenery change my husband and I are experiencing and the lifestyle adjustment we are both making, this collection of photographs seemed appropriate. Alright…here we go!

Going, going…Gone!

And we’re off. The bags are packed, the truck is loaded and we have hit the long road West to Fort Worth, Texas. Wish us luck! Back to regular programming soon.

In the midst of Chaos

David and I are in the throes of our move and greatly deprived of time, energy, and sleep. So today’s offering is brief and to the point. Flowers make me happy! Simple as that. Hope you enjoy your day and stay tuned as I adventure along this foreign and untrodden path called becoming an adult...

The Golden Age of Couture

There is no denying the newest and strongest trend of the fall season: 1950s glamour, initiated by both the Prada & Louis Vuitton F/W 2010 collections (shared below).   Perpetuating this trend are magazine editorials such as the July edition of American Vogue with Natalia Vodianova  and July’s Harper’s Bazaar featuring Katherine Heigl. Both were beautiful and...

Texas Update: In the Big City

So, Dallas is fantastic! David and I are having the best time exploring the city and discovering what I’m sure is just the beginning of some very cool things. One such “thing” would, with out a doubt, have to be the NYLO Hotel in Irving (which is not far from where we are staying). It...

Time to Tweet!

Ok, ok…fine. I guess I can do this….I’ll join the rest of the modern world and jump on the Twitter band wagon. (sigh) I mean, come on, I almost have no choice. My terribly talented husband of Contemporary Voice is totally showing me up with the whole crushin’-it blog thing. (Follow the Crush-It link to...

Being Moved…

Hello again! I’m back from another full week of activity and learning. This past weekend I participated in the American College Dance Festival Association Southeastern Regional Conference, which was hosted at MTSU where I attend college. It was an exhausting week of classes, lectures, and dance concerts, but by the end of it I was...

Still going…

Now it’s crunch time! The MTSU Student Chapter ASID/IIDA 2010 Interior Design Student Showcase is tomorrow! (whew, that was a mouthful). I will definitely be taking pictures of my display  to share with all of you on Monday. Wish me luck! And see you next week! PS This past week was also New York Fashion...
