Memo 067: Home is Where the Heart (and My Furniture) Is…

Two Things: Number one, I moved. Number two, moving sucks!

Now, that that is out of the way. There are a couple of life lessons that I have learned from this moving “experience”:

  1. Sometimes you have to leave something that you love in order to fully appreciate it. If you’re lucky, you get the opportunity to get it back.
  2. There are only a few times in life where you get a do-over, use it wisely.
  3. Once you let someone into something that you value (heart, home, etc.), you’re extremely fortunate if they leave it better than the way they found it.

    Your new place is decorated so nicely and you look FABulous!!! I love your hair. Can you share some tips on what you did to make it curly? Thanks in advance 🙂

    With Love,

      Hey Ashley, I did nothing special for the curls except let my stylist curl it with a curling iron! Then I roll it at night with old school hard rollers…lol

    I'm loooooooving this look! I've been on the fence about matching head to toe prints, but you've given me the confidence to try it out!

    I just moved from Chicago to Seattle, and I can attest to how much moving throws you off your game… and blogging. Glad to see you back in the swing of things. Your style is impeccable and I will stand by the statement you are one of the BEST fashion bloggers out there… and nobody can touch you in terms of your knack for mixing prints. Any plans on blogging about your interior design? From the glimpses I saw, it's looking amazeballs!

      Thanks Ishea! Congrats on the move and thanks for the kind words. I'm not sure about any interior design plans at this moment. Although, I do LOVE decorating a home. Let me think about this…

      Ishea, Chicago misses you already!

      She is so right. You are THE mix mistress!!! Maybe it can be just a series of posts from room-to-room instead of ongoing.
