European Modern Furniture: BD Home

Right in our own back yard in Classen Curve lies this gem of a furniture store, unlike any other I’ve seen in my area.  It’s one of those places that has things that you see in fabulous interior design magazines, like Elle Decor or Veranda or Town & Country.     BD Home is an […]

The Riley Group Assistant Love

I wear many hats, most of you already know.   So I can’t even begin to tell you what LIFESAVERs The Riley Group has been to me.  They have been my second set of hands to do things I just hadn’t had time for that needed to get done….     We all have some […]

For those of us who live in this booming city, we know that we feel a sense of buzz in the air in Oklahoma City.  There’s always something hot and happenin going on.  And one week from today,  in my cool hot and hip part of town, there’s going to be night of food, music, […]

WOW: Daily To-Do List

WOW is a favorite word of mine because it represents WONDERFULness….  and to me WONDERFULness is nothing but good and positive and purposeful and awesome, which is what we’re all about here, right? And it also stands for Words of Wisdom. And it’s Wednesday.  I think a perfect day, hump day, to give us a […]

Shop Your Closet: DVF Kaftan

When I spot a deal, I grab it and keep it for when I need it.  Then, when I need to wear something either for a special occasion or just to have something fresh and different, I just shop my closet.  Last time I talked about it HERE, and such was the case with this […]

Beauty: Miracle Gel Nails

I wish I was one of those girls who do gel and shellac nails.  Unfortunately, I’m not one of those.  The acetone just TOTALLY wears on my nails, making them brittle and weak.  Pretty sad.  This isn’t the first time I’ve shared my desire for the gel nail…  in fact, I’m all about trying alternatives, […]

On My Mind: A Filter on Our Feed

I recently posted this little rant on my personal Facebook page, and I got enough discussion I thought I’d turn it into a little post and hopefully reach more people and see if my one little voice can make a difference in the world in which we live….   Good morning friends! I rarely post […]

RECIPE: Beefekia aka Greek Beef Patties

Sometimes I think I’ve done a huge disservice to my family by raising my kids to eat their food groups in such a way that THAT is the way we eat around here all the time if I want to cook the same thing for everyone.  It’s not bad thing, but it does limit me […]

Greys, Grays and Golds in the Home

I’ve never been into the whole “matchy-matchy” thing when it comes to interior design.  And I’ve always loved these two colors combined…  gray and gold (or grey and gold, depending on where you live).  I love the warmth the golds bring into a space to offset the coolness of the grey tones.   There are […]

Playing Dress Up On the Beach

I know fall is quickly approaching, but with our blistering hot temperatures, I’m still in summer mode… You know that feeling that little girls get when they play dress up? That “I feel fabulous” feeling?  You see, I have this big floppy hat.  And even though I’m no longer a young chickadee, that doesn’t stop […]

Welcoming West Elm

A few weeks back I shared the excitement and anticipation of the upcoming arrival of West Elm in our hood here.  Well, the day came (last week when my site was in the process of re-launching), and I couldn’t be more thrilled to show you some goodness from what they have to offer… I got […]

Making Memories: The Ritz Carlton Grand Cayman

I don’t know how you and your family travel, but we go thru this “do we go back to the place we LOVE or try something new” issue every year.  And year after year, we end up picking our favorite place, because, well, it’s our favorite place.  We can’t imagine anything better, for many reasons, […]

… And Away We Go….

The fam and I are off for a much needed summer vacation……     FYI, The Mister isn’t particularly fond of the black hat.  He said if I take it, he won’t sit next to me….  hmmmmmmm… awfully tempting! HA!  He actually said I looked like the widow on Jaws! LOL! But on a more […]

Beauty, Balance and Bonding

I think so many women who want kids love the thought of having a little girl.  There’s something about having a little girl to dress up and fix her hair.  God blessed me with a good one 13 years ago…  my mini-me.  And has she ever been a ball!  Parenting has it’s challenges for sure, […]

West Elm Love

Look who is moving down the street from me…       West Elm is coming to town!  OKC… (and happens to be ON WESTERN AVENUE!  HOLLA!!!) If I could go on a little shopping spree, I think I’d like each of those pretties.  Mark your calendar…  August 14th is the BIG day! By the […]

Swimsuits, Getting Personal and a Giveaway

So before I begin rambling, lemme begin by saying I’m off to the beach this Friday and that means I’ve been in swimsuit hunting mode, and with that, wanting to try NEW things, but yet going back to the same ole thing and what I think looks good on me.     One of the […]
