Found it!

This has to be one of the cutest lamps I've ever come across. I found it at a great new boutique in Houston called bespoke by GJCD in the Heights. In addition to the fabulous decorative items they carry they also offer interior design services. I think this lamp would look great on a modern dresser. What would you pair it with?

BTW - While you 're on 19th street make sure to visit my new *favorite* spot Pie in the Sky. I am now a regular!

Mixing it up a bit

Some window shopping from my favorite designers. I would totally wear this outfit! I think the clutch adds the right amount of contrast and balances out the shoes perfectly. What do you think? Feeling very fashionable today, take a look at another ensemble I put together here . Off for some real shopping feeling inspired!

My Birthday with the Beautiful People

The Strawberry Bomb

Nothing makes a birthday more special than celebrating it with family and friends. Friday I had a beautiful fete at The Cork Wine Bar in downtown Houston. Wine, aperitivos, cupcakes from Little Miss Cupcakes , fabulous girlfriends, cute boys, a disco ball (a gift) and a cute waiter made the evening complete. Saturday my lovely mom hosted a birthday lunch for my family and I complete with a homemade birthday cake, my favorite dish and my 3 year old nephew taking a swipe at the frosting as they sung happy birthday. Now enjoying all my bd swag, Liberty of London, Creed, Valentino, Champagne.... Happy Birthday indeed!

Modern Feminine

So many good things going on right now, I'm a lucky girl! One of my favorite new missions is a mini bedroom makeover I am undertaking with the help of the lovely Courtney from Under a Paper Moon. I have been looking forward to this room redo for way too long and spring is the perfect time for renewal. The overall design theme is Modern Feminine and the overall design challenge is a teeny budget! Take a look at some of the inspiration for the room redo from .

Happy Birthday, Gabby!

I had the most wonderful assignment today! A birthday wish list. I am more than happy to oblige! So far i have this wonderful tank from J.Crew, a clutch from Club Monaco, Chanel nail colour, and a rose gold bangle from Robert Coin -have one already but i think this type of accessory works better in multiples ; )
