From the moment that Mom and Dad introduced me to Mickey and Minnie, Polka Dots became a big part of my life. As I matured I started to think of polka dots as being juvenile. But, over the years they have become almost as main stream as stripes. I see Polka Dots everywhere now, and I must say it thrills me. To me, they give things a classic yet playful feel, no matter what room they are in. And, if you happen to be a Kate Spade New York fan like me, you know that she throws Polka Dots around like Confetti, which is A-OK with me.

Polka Dots can be used to add character and personality to every room from the Bathroom to the Kitchen. You will find them in pretty much everything Home Decor Related. They can be used as a way to add pattern, texture, and color to an otherwise neutral space. With the start of the Fall Semester being around the corner, Polka Dots are a definitely on trend in dorm decor. When you have a limited amount of space, or when you are renting and don’t want to make any real changes to the property it is a way to incorporate your style into your space.
It’s Friday!! We made it …. The Weekend is here, and yes, I had my doubts….
If you follow us on Facebook, you know that I am always talking about how my favorite emails are the ones that start with Your Order has been Shipped. This American Flag scarf is my latest purchase. I live for a great scarf. I am always thinking ahead when it come to outfits. So when I saw this scarf over on Jane.com … I had to have it. I think it will be the perfect pop to a simple white or blue t shirt for the fourth of July festivities. Even if I am not sure what they are right now.
My next obsession is the Wireless Speaker that hubby bought me for my birthday. There is nothing I enjoy more than being able to play my music really loud and tune out the world. I still get texts from him asking if my music is loud enough. But, I think he gets it that sometimes I just need to escape…
I’m crushing hard on the awesome coasters that my Aunt sent me from Belize(she retired there). It feeds both my love of wood and my love of coasters. Even if I do have to remind myself that they are to protect my furniture and not just for show. I tend to get annoyed when cleaning up and I realize someone spilled something on them.
I live on my cell phone. So more likely than not the battery is low, which is why I have such a serious relationship with my iPhone charger. I always need my car charger to be up and running. On Saturday, my charger met its untimely death. Thankfully, it was under warranty so i went to Radio Shack to replace it. The Radio Shack closest to me is going out of business, so they couldn’t honor my Warranty. So, I had to travel way out of my way to get to the next closest one. They didn’t have the charger that I wanted, so they gave me a replacement that was supposedly an upgrade. When she told me that I immediately gave her the side eye, because I LOVED the charger that I had before. Sure enough the charger worked for the trip home and that was it. So, I have to return it, but in the mean time I ran into the Radio Shack closest to me, and not only did they have my charger it was 60% off. So I bought 2 one for now, and one for when I wear the other one out. And, just in case you just have to know what Charger I use it’s Made by Digital Energy found here. (The last ones I had were pink, so they come in pink too.)
Yes, I am still obsessed with the Hoop earrings that Hubby got me for Christmas. The reason – I can pull my hair back in a ponytail, apply lip gloss, a little bit of eyeliner, throw on my Hoop Earrings and a Scarf and my other wise Mom outfit just got transformed into something cute and stylish.
As I started to type out this list, I suppose almost all of these items are gifts from the Hubby. Sue me, I may be a bit spoiled. But, I adore this Mug because well… it’s Lenox, it’s Kate Spade, it has Black and White Stripes and …. it say’s S on it… What’s not to love.
I have always been that girl who want’s what she wants. My earliest memory of this was going shopping with my Mom, and I would set my mind on something that I saw within the first few minutes of shopping. And, she would try to show me this and that. But, nope, my mind had already been made up. I hope that my girls won’t be like that, because if they are I am sure I have some rough years ahead of me.
