"When you realize that a beautiful interior has very little to do with objects and a whole lot to do with spirit, general well being and upliftment you find the soul of interior design. If you have respect for your surroundings and everything has it's perfect place you interact with your world differently you carry yourself differently. My father used to say that the state of your surroundings is the state of your mind. Look around your home, let your home be the foundation of your aspiration."

Too busy shopping

I admit I may have a problem.  While spending time catching up on other blogs, Facebook and now throwing Pinterest into the mix, not only are they great ways to connect with people but I also find that I am doing a lot more shopping!  When you combine all these avenues it's a deadly mix that creates some serious damage to the credit card.

The damage:

Pink boat neck sweater from Zara, first seen on Blair's blog Atlantic-Pacific.  Her fabulous blog is to blame for this purchase.

Print by Tastes orangey for my living room.  I was introduced to this artist through Ceri at Cooper Grey.  I'm putting together a gallery wall and this is a great addition.

Bfrend bracelets by the lovely Monika Hibbs.  First spotted on Made by Girl.  I am always finding things through Jen that are on my have to have list.  Damn her for having such great taste.

Orange lacquer tray from West Elm for my cool bar cart.  Just because I needed another splash of orange in my newly decorated living room.

Gold Chanelesque blazer from Zara all because of the new online shopping option.
