Small & Stylish Work Spaces

Posted By: admin
Category: Glamorous Decor

Just because your work space is small on square footage doesn’t mean you have to forfeit style. Having a space that is inviting, inspiring and comfortable will not only boost your productivity but your mood. Your work space should be a happy place for you to do your best. Here are a few simple rules to follow if your looking to achieve a space that really “works” for you!

1. First and foremost you MUST have comfortable seating because lets face it if your not comfortable it’s going to be mighty hard to feel productive.

2. Organization is key. Case in point you need to have certain necessities on your desk like your laptop, lighting and of course a few supplies (pen/pencils) but keep it to a minimum. You will have more clarity with an uncluttered work space.

3. Bearing in mind the rules of uncluttering rest assured there’s always room for some much needed “pretty.” Create a space that you love with some fresh flowers in a beautiful vase or a few desktop accessories that add a pop of style. Surround yourself with a few items that really make you smile.

Fit to a Tee

Posted By: admin
Category: Fashion tips

If you haven’t taken note lately of the sudden reemergence of the logo tee  be forewarned it’s BACKKKKKKK and in a BIG way. Logo tee’s are being sported with everything including upscale skirting (think any and all designer brands even Chanel and YES you are reading that right-see exhibit A which would be the first photo posted  below with fringe).

Should you want to get on the logo tee band wagon and really make this look work here are a few tried and true rules for looking stylish.

Your logo tee should fit. Period. End of Story.  Think sleek and chic. Check that the shoulder seams hit your proportion perfectly and please I beg you no baggy tee’s worn to “cover up” a problem area because the problem with THAT idea is it only accentuates the problem. You want to look pulled together not pulled apart.

Dress your tee up or dress it down but the preference should be to tuck in the tails and look polished.

Two resources with some aaaadorable tee’s to consider are Shopbop.com and my latest fashion find for fashionable tee shirts that are so adorable and affordable is Eugoriashop.com ( most of their tee’s are $22.00 and they also do custom. orders. They run a tad baggy so just go down a size for a slim fit).

Pippa’s Perfect Day

Posted By: admin
Category: Fashion

Sooooo the question is: “What do you wear on your wedding day when your sister married the future Prince of England a few years ago and her dress will go down in history?We first  took note of Pippa Middleton as she tended to her Sister Kaon that her sister’s wedding day. Who could forget the uproar from her donning a simple yet sleek silhouette that everybody was talking about for days after.Well, that was then and this is now. Today Pippa Middleton got married and for that very special occasion she didn’t disappoint. Lucky Pippa has a friend by the name of Giles Deacon who just so happens to be a verrry talent designer and whipped together this beautiful ivory lace cap sleeve wedding gown that is EVERYTHING we hoped it would be. Sophisticated, sleek, elegant and classic. The Middleton girls have a penchant for hitting the perfect notes when it comes to classic styling that is timeless.

One Fabu Float

Posted By: Terri
Category: Glamorous Decor

I couldn’t help myself! Mother’s Day is exactly 2 count um 2 days away and everyone is scrambling to get Mom something special.You KNOW the usual suspects: flowers (the eternal standby) perfume, clothing or God for bid something for the house-I beg you PLEASE DO NOT… I repeat DON”T EVEN THINK of giving her something …practical  aka something to beautify, clean or adorn the house. Mother’s day should be the one day of the year completely about her!

So I got to thinking. What would be something fun and festive and a tad off the beaten path of the same old same old stand by Mother’s Day Gift? As I was scouring numerous sites low and behold I came across THIS!!!!!

lip pool float 98 now 6860 neiman marcus

Funboy Lips Pool Float Neiman Marcus $98.00/Sale: $68.60

It’s perfect. Think of it…Mom relaxing by the pool  sipping her favorite drink while being nestled in this fun and might I say fashionable floatation device. It checks all the boxes Mom needs to pamper herself in the sweet Summer days ahead. Happy Mother’s Day! *Click on picture to be directly to site.

Intermix Obsession

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

Truth be told I have had a major obsession with the store Intermix for quite sometime. It happened innocently enough. I was asked by their PR firm many years ago to do a write up on their latest store opening in Brentwood, CA.

http://www.gotoglamourgirl.com/2012/03/23/intermix-opens-in-brentwood/.

You can guess that they didn’t have to ask twice and I was on my way to view the newest abode. To my delight the store is filled with a bevy of beautiful items from oodles of different designers all put together in the most imaginative mix. Hence the name Intermix. The store and website go beyond the usual pairing of outfit by one designer and realllly does a great job at mixing numerous labels together to make one look. Just to give you a little heads up that their store and site are worth a look or two or three here is just a sample of the findings. All images courtesy of none other ..Intermix.com

Lovely Lace

Posted By: Terri
Category: Designer Spotlight

Once upon a time lace was only reserved for wedding wear aka bridal gowns. But that was long ago and today is a whole different story. Lovely  lace and ruffles in particular have made a major comeback this summer and the look can be frilly, feminine and modern. The thrill of the frill can be purchased at all price points and if you have a stash of cash might I suggest perusing the collection from Zimmerman.com or if you don’t want to break the bank I have a few suggestions…just scroll down and click the pic to be sent to the source. Enjoy!
