I’m Loving It – Emmys 2014

Alert!  McDonald’s is really having a moment.  

First we had Jeremy Scott’s nod to the fast food chain and now the crimson line up (I just couldn’t look away from) at the 2014 Emmys.  I didn’t choose all red gowns despite the abundance, but the gowns I did choose all had a little something unexpected.

Claire Danes in Givenchy – In the Edit because:  Givenchy in red. An honorable mention to beaded butterflies on the collar and lace cut outs.

Julia Roberts in Elie Saab – In the Edit because:  Looking youthful is always in.  Visual happiness provided by long sleeves and short skirts.  Honorable mention to bubble beads.

Sarah Paulson in Armani Prive – In the Edit because:  Tulle and polkadots are just doing their thang.  Honorable mention to Edgar Allen Poe and the Raven.

The Greenest of Grasses

I’m a chronic “grass is always greener” type of gal.  This default brain wave of mine has been a force of fierce motivation and a source of sheer frustration all at the same time.  The army of What Ifs rule this vulnerable territory of my little pea brain.  It is probably the reason why I can never fall asleep very easily.

With that being said, let’s visit my living situation – a 1 bedroom, one bath in Queens, NY.  Hubby and I have seriously dabbled in the options of upgrading and though financially feasible, we’ve come to the conclusion to take advantage of what we have, or more importantly… what we don’t have.

Renting kind of rules.  If there’s a problem, I call the super.  I don’t pay for heat or water.  If something breaks, it’s not my problem and when it snows… there’s nothing more cozy than hearing the sidewalk being shoveled by someone you don’t know every couple of hours.

The house horrors can wait.  Below is a sneak peak of my foyer revamp.
