empty spaces

I have been wanting to get back to the blog for some time now. I have drafted this post a thousand times in my head. I have been wanting to come back from my absence and return to the world of blogs that all seems so happy and perfect and joyful and just thrilled at every little discovery made. But I cant.

So much has been happening from a relationship falling apart, small children to nurture, myself to take care of, a house that needs attention; and being pulled in so many ways. I’m still here. I’m still shopping and window shopping but just havent been moved enough to share much. So I will be back and I will be posting again.

I’m jumping on the boat and blogging about my journey. Picked up the book and dove in head first. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Then head over to Apartment Therapy. They even have a Flickr pool to share your spaces and inspiration.

Week 1 was about creating your vision. I grabbed some images of spaces that I want to move toward in redoing my living room. My flickr set is also out there.

I have been madly in love with the LD Tuttle Shifter Dust boots for a long time now and I couldnt find a pair that was more reasonable in price (read: I’m a cheap bitch…lol). But my luck has changed and Nine West has come to my rescue.

the day before

So glad that I got the Sundance Channel. I discovered the series “The Day Before” and I am so enthralled. Read below:

“…documentarian Loic Prigent unveiled rare and refreshing glimpses behind the doors of some of the world’s leading fashion houses. In this four-part documentary series, Prigent chronicles the final 36 hours prior to crucial seasonal runway shows featuring creations by some of the fashion world’s leading designers.”

I caught the Sonia Rykiel episode and I am just left drooling. I want so bad to be a part of it. Even if I was the little peon who was treated worse than a maggot on shit, I would wear a smile on my face for the rest of my life!

man shops globe

So, how many of you, like me, have upgraded your tv package to include the Sundance channel just to watch this show? Man shops globe is such a great show. I sat there with my jaw gaping open at some of the pieces and places he discovered and visited. Keith Johnson has one of the best jobs I could ever imagine. He is one of the buyers for Anthropologie and is responsible for some of their beautiful displays, furnishings and art, all of which can be purchased, which I did not know. I know have to set aside a much larger budget when shopping Anthropologie!

So, you must watch this show or catch some of the episodes on the Sundance website.  I just wish it was like 2 hours longer! AND in HD!
