Afternoon Treat

Really excited for a little treat this afternoon after I'm done at the office. This week has been insanely busy and the weekend only looks busier.

Creative Seating Cards

I love the idea of chalkboard place mats as seating cards for a party or wedding. I think it would even be cute on your normal dining room table!

Achievable Style

I just stumbled across The Glamourai blog and have fallen in love with Kelly Framel's style. I think it's something most young women can pull off with a little bit of creativity.

Half Shark Half Pig

Not only is Shark Pig that strangest name for a business, but the production company creates the most amazing wedding and event videos. Owners Brian Morrow and Jonathan Lynch have worked with HGTV, Rue Magazine, Bash Please Events and more. Check out their most recent video from  a Rue Magazine photo shoot.

Rooftop Decks + Courtyards

This Chicago apartment's rooftop decks, mini-golf course, pool and courtyards are gorgeous.

Never Forget an Important Date

I love these numeral rings that you can stack to represent important dates. If they weren't each $440 dollars I'd be all over ordering these.

Kraft Paper In Use

I love the great trend of using kraft paper in wedding invitations, reception details, business collateral and other paper products. These are some beautiful examples I found on Pinterest. (If you're not on this awesome cataloging website, get on it!)

New Looks by Lauren Conrad

I admit it, I watched Laguna Beach and The Hills a few years ago. And I wouldn't have expected Lauren Conrad to do such great stuff after leaving the show, but she has created a great clothing line at Kohl's, writes for Forbes and runs a beauty website.

Here are a few shots from her new 2011 summer line:

Saturday Morning Inspiration

I'll be stuck in my office all weekend working on a magazine for a local nonprofit, so I thought I'd share some fabulous home office spaces.

I'm so excited to be starting this new blog where I'll post things that inspire me. There are a lot of new things starting in my design career and this will be a perfect outlet for sharing great design, fashion, decor, diy projects and more.

As I transition out of my full time job and into my freelance career five days a week (or sometimes seven days), blogging will be a fun way to break up the day. I've always enjoyed reading blogs and now I'm excited to join the many great writers, designers and personalities on the blog stage.
