Tissue Paper Pom Poms

September 30, 2009



As you may recall I’m hosting  – and am oh so excited about – a Little Dresses for Africa party.  I want the room to be as fun and inspiring as possible for the ladies who are participating. The first element of my decor will be these festive tissue pom poms. I’ve been in love with these things forever but haven’t had an occasion to use them.  Next up is deciding what’s on the menu. I’m starting to get excited…


In theory…

I walked out of my place this morning and thought summer is seriously long gone and it’s pretty depressing. All summer I’ve been sporting dresses and now I’m in the market for a few cute pairs of pants.  In my search I remembered my old and very talented friend Adrienne designs for Theory and has a few tips for the latest trends. You can check her out here. She’s stylish in pink!

Rainbow_2_by_bittykateI came across this cake called the Super Epic Rainbow Cake and thought how fun and yummy is this thing? I’m totally making it over the next few days, it’s fun and chaotic and I guess that’s the kind of mood I’m in. Sometimes you get sick of pretty and safe and this is just the answer. I hope it tastes as amazing as it looks. Have a wonderful and fun weekend!

Oh joy…

September 24, 2009


I’m sorry I’ve been away, I was traveling for work. I had a chance to visit Madison, Wisconsin. I met some very interesting people, had a chance to sample some great cheeses and ate at a wonderful farm to table restuarant called Harvest (if you’re visiting Madison be sure to check it out). The hierloom tomato salad with goat cheese and fresh pepper was so simple yet amazing.

Needless to say, as is always the case after traveling, I have tons of e-mails to check. While scrolling through my inbox, I came across an e-mail notifying me that ABC Carpet and Home now has online shopping. Oh joy! I realize because of the unique and plentiful inventory, I know the availability of what is online will differ significantly from what is actually in the story but that’s ok, I’m just so pleased I can at least have access to some of the goodies at ABC without having to trek to New York.
