As an only child, it’s totally up to me to make sure that my mom knows how special she is. That means there’s no chipping in on an awesome gift, no one to brainstorm with, and no partner in crime to plan anything.
This year I think I surprised her, though. I sent her flowers, but sent them to her office. Since I have no siblings, there’s no one to see the flowers and for her to say “Do you see what your sister Greta did for Mother’s Day?”

I’ve been working on re-doing my house recently. I’m tired of looking at the stuff I have, and I’m just ready for a totally fresh new look.
Two of the things I love are color and texture. I’m not afraid of color at all, and textures are one of the things that really add depth to whatever you’re doing. That’s part of the reasons why I like CB2 and Novogratz Collection.
I particularly love the Botao Stripe ottoman. While the sectional is kind of cool, we had a sofa like that before, and we’d regularly lose stuff between the pieces. Of course, you could also move it into absolutely any configuration.
I also think that the Dupla credenza would look amazing in my house. I love the Mid Century Modern lines of the piece, as well as the unexpected pop of color.
If you’re looking to add a pop of color, or freshen up your space on a limited budget, try the Saudedes pillows or the Boa Suerte backgammon set. The backgammon set is particularly fun as a conversation piece and something to do!
Perhaps you need some more inspiration. Something other than looking at images in a catalog.
Did you know that CB2 is also running a ridiculously awesome contest right now? Yep, it’s true. One ridiculously lucky winner will win the trip of a lifetime – One week’s stay at the Novogratz’s home in Brazil – for them and three friends. If you win, I’ll be one of your guests, right?
10 other winners will each receive a $100 gift card to CB2 and a signed copy of the Novogratz’s new book “Home by Novogratz”
Sounds awesome, right? You should totally enter the CB2 and Novogratz Brasil Sweepstakes!

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Dunkin' Donuts. I received a Dunkin' Donuts Party Kit to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
I have a group of friends that all like to get together and do stuff. We take turns hosting, or occasionally, going somewhere like a park or a restaurant, depending on what we’re doing. Recently, my turn to host came up. I figured we’d do some crafting, because, well, that’s what I like to do. I also had a few projects I needed to get done, and figured if we were having a crafting party, it would help me get my rear in gear for these few projects.
Since I was hosting this gathering at my house, I was responsible for providing some snacks and refreshments, too. Since most of us like frou frou coffee drinks, I figured this would be the perfect time to introduce the new seasonal flavors of Dunkin Donuts coffee with an iced coffee recipe.
A great cocktail can really make or break a day. While I'm not a huge drinker, I do like to partake every so often, generally with a frou frou drink. You know what I'm talking about, right? A mixed drink, a fruit garnish, and maybe a little paper umbrella or something on a sword as a stirrer. Yeah…I can practically taste it now.
Cruzan Rum, makers of fine flavored rums like Vanilla Rum, Passionfruit Rum, and even Key Lime Rum, has a ton of fantabulous sounding cocktail recipes. One that I thought sounded particularly good was the Cruzan Rum Lemonade.

This Spring 2013 Trends discussion has been brought to you by Harrods.
I have a secret to share. I tend to wear the same clothes over and over again. But, like everyone else, I tend to get tired of these clothes, and want to give them a new life. How do I give them a fresh new look? With accessories! They’re quick to find, can add a great pop of color, and can be found in every price range out there. Here are some of the Spring 2013 trends.

Fairies are mystical, magical beings. It seems that as a child you see them everywhere, and at some point, you stop believing. Here are some inspirational fairy quotes.

I am a huge fan of nail polish. In fact, I think I may be an addict. Even though my personal collection of polish is somewhere in the 250-300 bottle range, it seems that I can always find new colors to add.
The new LancomeAquatic Summer collection is no different. Inspired by the seas in luxe vacation areas around the world, you’ll be transported! These gorgeous nail lacquer shades in watery hues are perfect for Spring and Summer!

Gardening can be fun and exciting. Personally, I’ve always been kind of jazzed by it, but my parents met at college – an Ag college. And they’re both free spirits. Sooo…my childhood experiences are kind of different than most peoples.
While I think it’s exciting to know that the seeds that are sown are going to turn into tasty veggies, vivid flowers, and flavorful herbs and spices, some people need a little more instant gratification. That’s where thesefun garden projects from Miracle Gro come in.
