3 of my favorite things!

So, here goes my first blog post about some of my favorite things!! Oh, how I love Instyle Magazine. I have been subscribing to it for so long, I can't count the years. I love the photos, the editorial layouts, the articles, I love it all.  A few of my favorite articles include the "Man of style" and the "Life" section because it showcases different celebrity homes every month. I also love the "where to find" page, even if this girl can't afford it!  It is the highlight of my day when this mag comes in the mail.  That, and well, I love getting mail.  So much more intimate than an email or text.  Snail mail is a nice surprise every now and then.

We talked about Magazines, now off to J.Crew .  My heart skips a beat when there is a major MAJOR sale. That's all. Pretty simple. I love the clean, colorful, yet sweet style of the clothing line for men and women. I wish they had the wedding line when I got married. All the girls/guys and I would be in J. Crew for sure!

Moving on to my last favorite of the day...Pier 1 Ahhhhh! Let's just say I have a lot of Pier 1 in my home. It's me, it's "our" style.  We've figured that out over time.  We love clean design that is simple and stylish. Nothing over the top. Pier 1 is our happy place.

My favorite things.

I've decided that I'm going to start blogging about my favorite things. I will start it this week! I'm also in the middle of changing just about everything about my blog. Name, design, etc. There will be a lot of change going on in the coming months. It will be slow, but it's a must if I want to move on up in this blogging world and my career in general.   In previous posts, you all know that I love Fashion/Style, Photography, Writing, Design and so many other things. I blog about it all and in 2010, I would really like to MTH (Make Things Happen).  I can't take credit for that motto. All credit goes to Lara Casey, editor of Southern Weddings Magazine and founder of the MTH 2010 Intensive. **I may have some news about this in a a future post. 

Well, that's enough for my exciting Friday evening. Going to finish watching the Olympics opening ceremony!!    In lieu of the 22 inches of snow we received this week....I'm looking at old vacation pics to brighten my winter blues.  This is a photo I took on the rooftop of our hotel in San Juan, PR.
Makes. Me. Happy.

The best of both worlds!!!

I came across this blog via Twitter.  My love of photography and interior design in one place....there is a God. Ok, it's really not that dramatic as much as it is FABULOUS!!!  Marsha Mifsud is the founder and editor as well as photographer of Sweet Bliss Studios for the past 12 years. If that wasn't enough, she has businesses on both the East and West coasts.  Learn more about her at  I'm officially one of her blog "stalkers" if you will. Now, if I had enough rooms in my house to redecorate, I would be golden.

I saw this blog frame on madebygirl today and thought it would be great for an office, it's artsy, fun and it's oh, so true. I could study lifestyle photography, fashion, design, travel and food blogs ALL day long.
The blog has a variety of card, prints, posters, and tons of different products for your shopping pleasure!! Take a look at Jennifer Ramos's blog,  She writes about fabulous design ideas for your home and everything inbetween!
Here's another group of  framed pieces that I thought would go great in any room because they are so basic and simple. LOVE!
