I can officially say from experience that being a mom or a babysitter is no easy job. I'm not a mom yet, thank God, but I am spending my summer watching a 3-month-old little boy named Wells. Don't get me wrong, he is an adorable little nugget - but boy is he hard work! I was thinking - wow! This will be great, I will have so much time to blog and work on art. All they do is sleep right? Think again. He takes so much attention! This is the first time I have been on the internet all week. I thought that surely the summer would give me some time to catch up on my site. But no...
I hardly got one paragraph in before I had to go attend to Wells for an hour. I shouldn't be complaning though. I knew what I was getting into when I signed up for this. Atleast this tells me one thing - I don't want kids for a long time! Haha. They sure are adorable, but time for yourself completely flys out the window. I mean, you should see me right now. I am a wreck! I am still in pajamas, no make-up, & house shoes. Not a pretty site!
I am thankful I'm not working a job where I have to hang up clothes or make sandwiches all day. But seriously, this is like the same job a mom has. I have to balance keeping a home clean, errands, and a 3-month-old for 11 hours a day! By the time 6:00 pm comes around I am exhausted! All I feel like doing is sleeping... Thank God for starbucks!
I just got the latest editions of Style at Home. Yaye! These are probably my two favorite home magazines. I decided I'd share the highlights with you.
I have always been obsessed with these sun mirrors. How wonderful does it look ontop of the bed? The bed post is gorgeous as well. I love the little carved out flowers. I could definitely see this being my bedroom one day.
How fabulous are these turquoise stripes? It is so easy to ruin a room with stripes, but in here.. the stripes make the room. This looks like a fashionista's office dream. This is the type of environment I would love to create art and do my work in. Perhaps she is a fashion designer? The mannequin screams designer. I think it is simply chic.
I love this little perfume and accessorie arrangement on the left. It is so feminine and glamourous. Perfumes look fabulous upon a glass tray. I lost mine - go figure - so I've been on a search for a new one. I also love the pops of color throughout the shelves and room on the right. It looks like such a summery, happy room.
Okay, what a gorgeous room! And talk about pattern. This room definitely pulled it off. I love the chest at the end of the bed. The pattern is so detailed and dramatic. The deep colors of the bed give off a passionate vibe. I'm not sure I'd have this as my room but I sure do enjoy looking at it.
This room feels like a breath of fresh air. All the light touches give it a summery essence. I could see this house looking over a gorgeous florida beach. It is very organic and elegant. I love the shape of the chairs and love seats. Beautiful
This room is so ME. It has all the accents and combinations that I love: beautiful art, pink flowers, animal printed pillows, strips, and a tufted chair and footstool. Perfection.
This vanity is so simple and beautiful. I love how bare and clean it is. Just enough feminine touches to make it girly. The feather painting is my favorite. I think it does a nice job drawing in all the other colors in the space.
I love black & white. The pattern on the back of the dinning chairs is so very chic. Literally, I would give up my left pinky finger for them. Yes, it might hurt, but I'd have the most gorgeous chairs on the block!
Okay, so I am going to try with all my might to post tomorrow. Wish me luck!
