Around the corner

Since it's cooled off a bit here-it's only 95 degreess, and not in triple digits- I've been thinking a little bit more about fall! I've been a HUGE Kelly Wearstler fan for awhile now, and I'm SO excited to see that she's adding to her awesome interior design with a new clothing line. Here are some of her interiors:

And here are a few looks from her Fall '11 collection!

Tim Knows Best

The new season of Project Runway started on Thursday, and I think it's going to be a good one! There was nothing too spectacular in the first episode, where they had to make something out of a bed sheet and whatever pj's they were wearing. But I have high hopes that it will get better from here! And it makes me happy that I get to hang out with Tim Gunn again, even if it's only a few minutes a week!

Monday Morning

Happy Monday Dolls!
I hope everyone had an awesome weekend! I helped Joe paint his car for a bit, then made some progress on my fall collection! I'm getting excited about it and can't wait to share it with you!
But for now, here's DSquared...I posted a few pics from this 2012 Resort collection before, but the more I look at it, the more I want it all! So here are a few more pieces, and I would like ALL of them in my closet!

Cupcake Club

Yesterday I finally used the Groupon that Joe got me for my birthday and picked up my 6 beautiful cupcakes from Just Baked! Rowley and I had a little party and definitely ended up sugar-high, sprawled out on the front lawn. Rowley's always down for a good time- especially when cupcakes are involved!
All cupcake descriptions are from their website ( you can see all the flavors they offer- but beware: reading this will lead to mad scramble for cupcakes!
It will now be impossible for me to drive by their shop without stopping in. Great. :P

Triple Vanilla- Vanilla bean cupcake with a creamy vanilla bean center and topped fluffy vanilla frosting. Finished off with vanilla bean soaked sugar crystals.
I'm a huge fan of frosting, so the extra inside was an awesome surprise!

Midnight Orange- Dark chocolate cake filled with whipped orange mousse, topped with dark chocolate butter cream, chocolate shavings and a sugared orange zest.
Although Rowley and I aren't normally fans of fruit mixed with chocolate, this cupcake was AMAZING! and almost too pretty to eat. Almost.

Chocolate Cream Filled- Our version of the old fashioned Hostess Cupcake. Cream filled
chocolate cupcake topped with chocolate ganache.
Also got big points with the extra frosting inside!

Little Italy- Our version of the amazing Italian dessert Tiramisu...Light and fluffy cupcake infused with a coffee rum syrup,topped with a mascarpone frosting, a dusitng of cocoa powder and a single chocolate covered espresso bean.
This one had so many different, delicious flavors...and a little mushier (technical term) on the inside, which i actually really liked! Rowley's second fave.

Strawberries and Cream- Sweet and moist vanilla cupcake filled with our house made strawberry puree and covered with a strawberry cream cheese frosting and a fresh strawberry
Hands down Rowley's fave! We tried to save some of each one for Dad, but this one didn't make it! For me it was a tie between this one and the Midnight Orange. Definitely pleasantly surprised with the fruit ones!

Signature Chocolate- Our signature chocolate cake, moist and decadent, topped with creamy chocolate butter cream and shaved valhrona chocolate.
Definitely delish, but wouldn't be my first choice only because I like to try more exotic flavors!

Are you hungry yet?!
Happy Friday Luvers! I hope everyone has an awesome weekend!

Mad About Blue

It's kinda ridiculous how obsessed with color I am. It just makes me SO happy, that I feel a little bit like a freak! It also results in a constant desire to redecorate/repaint my whole house every other week! Here's some inspiration for you blue lovers out there...
And a 'blue' random fact: The FIRST thing I ever said to my husband (before HI, like a normal person), was 'What's your favorite color?' ugh, so embarrassing! Fortunately, he answered 'blue', instead of running away! :P
