Pinterest Monthly: June 2013

Pastel Macarons with gold flakes. Almost too pretty to savor. 

This adorable little pooch. That fur and sweet face begs to be cuddled. 

Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland, Canada. I really want to visit this part of Canada. Not that far away!

Hot Tug. I saw one of these things on The Bachelorette. It made me laugh but now I want to go on one.
N' Luxe Owl Earrings. I've been really into owls lately. These jewels are fun to wear. Very cute. I love that owls represent wisdom and the night.

MacKenzie-Childs. I love this brand. I discovered it when the designer was featured on one of my favorite shows, Four Houses (TLC). I've been hunting down vintage pieces on eBay.

Ever since I was a little girl, I've always loved rocks. I used to visit a gemstone store and marvel at the pieces. My Mom also said I would get lost inside the geo section of the museum. My birthstone is Amethyst, so I'm naturally drawn to its beauty. I absolutely adore the idea of using geodes for home decor. When I get my own place, I'm definitely going to invest in these.
I need a new portable record player. I like the look of this model by Crosley.

Zara Studded Leather Bowling Bag. I broke my own "no more purses until Christmas" rule when I saw this marked down. It looks so pretty with my metallic gold wallet. I have a problem.

Rivka Friedman 18K Gold Clad East-West Gold Druzy Oval Ring. I love the look of rough stones and gold is my favorite. Excited to have this in my collection.

Keep Looking Up! I need to get a telescope. This Voyager Tabletop model fits the bill.

Conversation Chair by Old Hickory Tannery. Not only do I love the print but the shape of this piece of furniture is spectacular. The double seating is perfect.

This is an easy DIY that adds charm and dimension to any room. I especially like the idea of using a brooch or piece of jewelry that belonged to a relative or friend. Take an old frame, lay down some textiles and pin your bauble. 

Trophy Topper Wine Stoppers. I thought this was a brilliant way to repurpose old trophies. If you weren't victorious in your youth, most thrift shops or eBay have a plethora of old statues. 

Lyrics written on an old mirror. Literature and quotes are also endearing. Any excuse to display a personal touch. I'm a big fan of handwriting and hate to see it vanishing from our society.

Things Behind the Sun. I accidentally caught this movie when I was up late. I couldn't believe I had never heard of it before. Wonderful script, cinematography, acting and soundtrack. I highly suggest checking it out if you haven't already viewed it.

Man Up!: Tales of My Delusional Self-Confidence by Ross Matthews. Lately, I've been on a major reading kick when it comes to design, style and metaphysical books but this little gem captured my full attention. Ross is hilarious and his writing style is immensely enjoyable. Memoirs have always been my favorite and this book is no exception to the rule.

The colors and expression. Blonde Lasagna's artwork is phenomenal. 

Lanterns. I think they're one of my favorite things in the world. I'm so drawn to their beauty. Lighting is such a key component in any home that somehow gets overlooked by far too many.

I've come to the conclusion that metallic gold is my favorite color. Now there's a fine line between ghetto gold and gilded elegance. I'm entranced by everything bronzed and beautiful. I need to find that stapler!

I fully support this idea! Brilliant! Where's the Kickstarter?!

Baby's Breath in a white pitcher. Simple and sophisticated- yes, baby's breath are in again.

This house is a dream.

Booze & Books. Because isn't that all you really need in life? (And that tufted leather couch!)

Stylish Tots.

This itty bitty horsie cardigan. I'd put that kid above in it. 

Men's Street Style. He pulls those jeans off quite well.

! Amen.

Now Playing: "More Today Than Yesterday" by Spiral Starecase
*Their spelling, not mine.
*This is one of those songs that never fails to get stuck in my head.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
