On my mind || Birthdays and other shiny things

August 16, 2013


It's finally Friday!  My little one's birthday is this Sunday so you can imagine the excitement around here.  She asked for an Oreo cake. The one above seems so divine, but really I can't do buttercream, its just too much sugar and butter so instead we are going to make up our own oreo trifle.  So excited for it.  I will give you all the details next week, just think of oreos, ice cream, chocolate cake and chocolate mousse.  I know, I'm dieting as we speak!  So, a few things that caught my eye this week-

This fab little gold elephant garden stool would be so fun in a terrace or a kid's bedroom or playroom [first spotted via Elegance and Clutter].  Aren't you usually pleasantly surprised by Overstock.com?  I am!  Remember my post about their fab chairs?  They really have some amazing stuff if you have the patience to sift through everything.

Ok, this chandelier.....too amazing for words, a tad expensive but a gal can dream right?

And this Lizzie Fortunato feather necklace is so chic!

I'm really excited about having the DIY mongolian lamb stool mentioned in The Centsational Girl's blog! I do adore those stools.

  14. I'm dieting too, but the scale won't budge! I'm getting mad frustrated over here! I ordered a fall skirt in my "normal size" in attempt to will my body back to size. Hopefully that doesn't jinx me! But I am kind of depressed I can't afford that BEAUTIFUL chandelier so I might need some ice cream to make me feel better. ;-)
