My Sanctuary...

11.15.2014

My favorite room in my home, is my bedroom.
All I need is a bedroom kitchen and I would never leave. Ha!
Here's a little glimpse on some of my bedroom favorites. 
You asked, so here it is. Hope you enjoy it... and thanks for following my blog.
 My nightstand speaks for itself.
And as you can tell, I love a white bedroom with touches of black,
candles, mirrors and glass. 
 My office space. Simple, that's me.
 These 2 books sit in my office, on my nightstand or wherever I take them.
I bought them in 1999... one for each of my boys.
For the past 14 years, I've been filling them with memories, photos,
my thoughts, quotes and all things I want my boys to always remember me for. 
These books are probably my all-time favorite things.
 Obsessed with frames? Yes, that would be me. Someone once told me that a home
filled with picture frames indicated that "FAMILY" meant everything to that person. 
TRUE.
 Some women love their closet shoes, others their clothes, me on the
other hand... love my wooden hangers
 I'm a scarf girl, aren't we all? This is row 1 of 3... ridiculous, I know! 
 My wall of frames thanks to IKEA. Love. Love. Love.
 This frame sits in my bathroom and I look at it everyday. I normally like to switch out
and update photos in my frames but this one will always remain.
My boys were 2 and 5 at the time.
MY LIFE!
Lastly, my big floor mirror that sits next to my bed.
This is beautiful and adds a very special touch to my bedroom. When I
first saw it, I knew I had to have it. 

Ok, there you have it. Anything else you [wanna] know about me, just ask.

LONG OVERDUE! *the good and the bad

NOT A DAY goes by where I don't receive an email or two, good and bad, I love em' all because what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. And we all know strong women ROCK!
My 5 most frequently asked Q's. And it's not always about style.:
-Are those your eyelashes? Yes, I paid for them so technically they are mine.    :)
-Are your eyebrows tattooed? Nope. The key to great eyebrows is a good wax.
-Do you cook? This question makes me smile every time. And yes I do, really well too. 
-How old are you? Let's just say, I love the 80's.
-What is your favorite thing to wear? My Havaianas, the best flip flops in the world. No lie.

My most asked Q last week, which is also why I wrote this post.:
-What are your favorite shops? That's hard to answer because there's so many but off the top. I love Zulily.com, Piperlime.com, Nordstrom Rack.

My favorite Q to-date & just for fun because I rarely get negative feedback but I rec'd this email last summer and never addressed it. -Why are you blogging, no on cares about ugly people like you? Oh boy, I do have my ugly days. Hate that, don't you?   :)

And on that note, guess that's it for now. I'll add more Q's, to this list, as time goes on. As always, thanks so much for following my musings. I have followers who have been with me since 2007. I appreciate you.  Xo ~y
