What I have been doing with myself this week...

1. Inspired by this sofa from The Devil Wears Prada:

I have decided to put the Melinda fabric by Alan Campbell (through Quadrille) on this chair with chrome trim: 

2. Acquired this bag from Ann Taylor for all my crap and new Sony Vaio - it looks tailored and organized, even though I am not:
3. Buddy Kelly's hubs turned 40 - she gave him a surprise party at Cole Pratt Art Gallery - sweet! (and educational), and I had the most amazing convo with the crazy-talented artist Kaki Foley. More on her in a future post...

4. Have been obsessed with Sharon Montrose for years - used her baby animals in the Sweet and Sour Nursery project. Ordered the macaw and the burmese python prints this weekend - the teal and citron are my fave color combo right now! Bonus: convinced one of my besties to get the cow face and put it in blue zebra - wallpapered hallway. Yeah.



5. Spent HOURS looking at Amber's blog. She is an awesome interior designer and shares tons of diy projects with everyone - they are easy and genius! Had to prove to myself that I too, have mad rehab skills so I touched up my red lacquer armoire with Essie red fingernail polish. Not a good look. Check out this post, go to Ikea this weekend and make this bedside chest, people!


6. Daydreaming about my kickboxing instructor's abs with resolution to start exercising again this week!
****Disclaimer: This is not actually my kickboxing instructor (and is a little scary). It is, however, an accurate depiction of how shiny his abs always are.

Hope you are having an amazing week!

Shiny abs creep me out. I have so much work to do before I leave and thanks to you, I just spend the last 40 minutes on Sharon Montrose's site looking and animal photos.

Sabs, do you think I EVER get anything done at my "real" job?
