It's that time of year again...throw it away

 It's my favorite time of the year...fall.
I love everything about it...cool weather, sweaters, back to school, boots and new fall t.v. line up...just thinking about it makes me want to curl up under a nice, warm, faux fur, throw...like this
 My imagination is not limited to the occasional faux throw on the living room couch...Oh, no...I want them everywhere...even in the kitchen.

 I even want one on the bathroom floor...yes...my tiny bathroom floor.

 Nothing adds instant glamour like a white, faux throw.

 How I look when I'm relaxing and thinking about Mini having the time of her life at Spelman College.  LoL.

Head over to IKEA to get your own for pennies...

I Have a New York "accent"

I was speaking with a client...trying to convince them to add an wallpaper accent wall in their bedroom. 

Not an easy thing to do...when you say, "wallpaper" most people think of their grandma's dining room.

If you are nodding your head in agreement...let me show you how wrong you are...wallpaper has come a long way baby..
...this simple herringbone paper can be easily copied by painting free hand...no wallpaper needed.

This is my favorite.  A beautiful black and white graphic "temporary" wallpaper...that's right, I said "temporary"...peel and stick baby.
Get you some here, on ETSY.

Okay, I know some of you are still a little leery...why not use it on the side of your dresser draw?  ...peek a boo.

This is my favorite...yellow is becoming my new favorite color...sigh.

These dots can be picked up at any craft store or you could make them yourself by using a scrap paper circle cutter and the wallpaper of your choice.

Now this DIY is something I may try very soon in my entryway.  I'll use the temporary wallpaper I purchased at the dollar store...cut triangles and viola.

...can't go wrong with a kitchen accent wall.

...or a door.

Go ahead.  Make your house a home...infused with your personality.

Fall Fashion Trend - Poncho

If I could I would live in a poncho.  It is has been my go to outerwear for years.  I don't care about trends...I wear what I like...and I have loved ponchos since high school...good thing for me they are back in style, AGAIN...and I already own lots.

Be Inspired to rock your poncho this fall.

You can't go wrong with a belted poncho. 

My favorite way to style a poncho is with shorts, tights and booties.

 All the cool kids will be wearing them with ripped jeans and heels.

The perfect item for traveling.
