trick or treat

Happy Halloween! 

This weekend I dressed up as a traffic cone and the Wardrobe from The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. What was the most creative costume you have seen the past couple of days??

No matter if you're dressing up in a costume or orange and black, passing out candy, tying shoe laces for eager trick-or-treaters, watching Hocus Pocus, or slowly working your way into a sugar coma...Have a wonderful holiday!

coffee table displays

Have you ever played the game Concentration
My mom used to have all of us play it when she hosted parties for us at our house as kids. She would fill a cookie sheet with random knick-knacks ranging from a tooth pick, to a photograph, to a head band, to a pack of raisins and on and on. We were given 1 minute to look at the collection of items, trying to remember EVERYTHING that was on the sheet. After a minute, my mom would cover the tray and we had 2 minutes to write down everything that we could possibly think of. It was nearly impossible, I don't think I ever got half of the items on the tray, but it was still was so much fun. 
I came across these pictures of coffee tables and the elaborate and festive displays reminded me of the childhood party game. See if you can dress your table up to impress like these!

Words of Inspiration

"When the opportunity to get away from our everyday presents itself-we take it. Whether it's for an afternoon, a day, or a month. During those times we ditch our daily routine to go off and discover, we find things that inspire us. And those inspirations inevitably come to life in the styles we create. But more important, these getaways allow us to reconnect with the lifestyle our brand is rooted in."

The Queen of Beige

"She was dressed in a peignoir of beige lace with a blond wig above false eyelashes-a kind of Mt. Rushmore of the cosmetician's art."
