Hollywood Glam Headboard

I must admit a long kept secret.  I have a bit of a fetish for mirrored furniture.  I used to wonder if this implied something about me, (am I a closeted narcissist to want mirrors everywhere?) but then I decided I don't care because its all just so pretty! It seems I'm not the only one obsessed, because mirrored furniture is sold in the best retailers for very high prices. This means its out of my reach and I never get the chance to indulge in my guilty pleasure.  When I found this DIY project from Sunset I fell in love.  I will be moving into a new apartment soon and when I do this project is definitely being put to use!

The idea is just to arrange small lightweight mirrors in a grid pattern. That's it! Yet look how nice it turns out.

Ikea has a set of Sorli mirrors for only $4.99 I am so excited to try this out and will post pictures of the finished product

Oh if I were a rich girl, yada yada yada yaaaa

 All day long I'd biddy biddy bum, in these awesome boots! love these blue suede shoes! I imagine an 18th century aristocrat reclining with a parasol somewhere, perhaps munching on some cake?

and only fitting to such fabulous blue suede boots would be something I've been curious to try myself:

Blue velvet cake! I looove red velvet cake, and ever since I discovered there is a blue variety I've been dying to try making it! Since my endeavors in baking tend to be messy and time consuming, I haven't had a chance yet.  But when I get the time I'm going to try this recipe fro Paula Dean.

As for the boots I've got the budget of a pauper, so I'll just have to keep dreaming. . . .

As an unabashed romantic to the nth degree,  I do love me some pretty things.
Apparently this shows, because I often have people asking me if I'm interested in art, fashion, and design.

The answer is yes to all of the above! It seems as long as it pleases my eye, it pleases my mind.  I love anything that acts as an outlet for my suppressed creativity (I'm a Comparative Literature major turned Administrative Assistant goddammit!)

This blog is the outcome of my hours perusing the web in search of something shiny to buy, make, eat or do.  I wanted to share my finds with others, who themselves may feel like they are continually trapped in a bad remake of Office Space. . .
