Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

We had a great time back in Grosse Pointe, Michigan, spent some great quality time with my family.

This year my Mom bought a kosher Turkey from Trader Joe's and it was probably the best turkey we've had in years. Super moist, not dry and not full of salt and other crap. Needless to day, the meal was great! We all know, nothing beats a home cooked meal by Mom!

Oh well, I've been search a new brown riding boot for some time. I really wanted a chestnut color, thought I wanted a pair of Frye Melissa Riding Boots, but I didn't like the fit. Boo!  I ended up purchasing a pair of Bristol Riding Boots from Tory Burch.

At least the search is over for now. LOL!

Also, curious if anyone knows who makes the calendar below? I know it was expensive when I bought it and want to get another one for next year, but can't remember who makes it? Anyone?  

Oh well, hope you all find some great deals on this Cyber Monday! I have a Vineyard Vines and a Tory Burch gift card to use up!

Happy Shopping!

Craiglist find...

Last night I decided to surf Craigslist for the fun of it! Well, to my surprise I came across this adorable Bamboo side table. Isn't it adorable! I am thinking of painting it black, although it would look great in either pink or green.
Funny thing, I don't have a place for it in my house, but for $35 it was too good of a deal to pass up! Sorry for the lack of posting, life has been busy! Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving if I don't post again until after the Holiday. ~ PLD

Jo Malone...

Anyone else a huge fan of Jo Malone?

My favorite scent combination is Wild Bluebell. I also like English Pear & Freesia and a few months ago I bought Lemon Tart, which was is Limited Edition scent.

At first I didn't understand the concept of mixing scents, but it works. I thought it was just a way to sell more perfume! In reality it is, but it works!

Do you have a favorite Jo Malone scent combination? If so, what is it?

I'm interested in checking out new combinations!

Shopping finds....

Hopefully you had a fabulous weekend! I did!

Tonight I made a fabulous alcohol concoction. I forgot to pick up Mint, so I couldn't make a Watermelon Mojito! :(

Instead, I mixed some Pink Lemonade, Malibu Rum, Simple Syrup and Watermelon together over ice.....YUMMMM!!!!!  Very tasty, I might add!

Any Mojito fans out there?  Curious, what's your favorite Mojito?

Oh well, tonight we had BBQ chicken. Has anyone tried the Spiced Honey-Citrus BBQ Sauce from Williams-Sonoma? It's pretty pricey in my mind (for BBQ sauce), even on SALE I paid $11.99 for a bottle...LOL!

In any case, this BBQ sauce is AMAZING!!! Not sure if they still have it in stock, if they do you should definitely try it! YUMMMMMM!!!!

Also, over the past 24 hours I went to Talbot's on 4 different occasions, LOL! They had an additional 50% off SALE prices! Needless to say, I stocked up! ;)

I bought 4 pairs of signature twill capri pants, 4 pairs of Twill shorts, 2 3/4 length t-shirts and a blouse.

Of course, when I took the original photo I only showed 3 pairs of shorts. Forgot about the Green pair until I went to put them away, LOL!

The Fashion Outlet Mall of Chicago or whatever the name is, opened this weekend! I SO was tempted to make it out there, but didn't want to deal with the crowds! Ummmm, no thanks!

They have lots of great stores.... Tory Burch, Gucci, Prada, Longchamp, Original Penguin, AllSaints, Burberry (opening soon), Calypso St. Barth, and the usual outlet stores. Can't wait to check it out, but I am definitely going to wait! After all, it's not going anywhere and it's not a far drive from our house. LOL!

Oh well, hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

So not a happy camper folks!

You know how I previously posted about the cute Naples chest of drawers I ordered. Well, it arrived yesterday and I was super excited because I just ordered it on Tuesday.

Well, to my surprise it arrived in PIECES!

SERIOUSLY, the information specifically stated SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED!


Oh, I AM SO pissed!

Why didn't they say ASSEMBLY REQUIRED, argh!!!!!
If I wanted to put a frickin' dresser together I would have ordered one from IKEA! Ugh!!!!!!!!

Needless to say I have a fun project ahead of me, NOT!

Wish me luck, ugh!!!!!!!

Fabulous Finds...

I have to say, I am very impressed with the SALES over at JOSS & MAIN. Awhile back I bought this adorable shelving unit:

I have to admit, when it arrived I thought it would be complete. Nope, assembly required. Obviously, I missed that in the description. LOL! Luckily, it was super easy to make and turned out great! Last night I bought this awesome Naples Chest over at JOSS & MAIN as well. The description says, partial assembly. I wonder what that means, LOL!
Can't wait to see what other great finds JOSS & MAIN has up their sleeves! If you aren't a member of JOSS & MAIN, feel free to click HERE. SALES are private and membership is FREE! Have a great day! ~ PLD

Good Morning!

How's the weather near you? It's around 65 degrees and rather gloomy here in Chicago.

That's okay, as long as I can still wear my Jack Rogers Black Label Navajo sandals, it's all good! LOL!

This morning I decided to change things up and take a break from all my Louis Vuitton and Gucci purses and use one of my vintage Kate Spade purses. I bought the purse back in '99 or maybe it was '00 over at Neiman Marcus? Can't remember, I haven't used it in years.

Isn't it cute! I loved usigng it back when I was obsessed with Kate Spade back in the late 90's.

I just love the black and white stripes and the red leather under the strap and also on the bottom of the purse. Such a fun little purse, I should use it more often!

Have a wonderful Friday!

Taking another stab at blogging...

Hey there, hope you are enjoying the Summer!

It's be a hot one here in Chicago! So the cooler temps this week has been nice! No complaints here, LOL!

I have decided to take another stab a posting on my blog.

On the note, here's a sneak peak of my desk at my new house:

Yup, I have been pretty much painting and decorating since October, hence my blog hiatus!

Not to mention, we adopted a puppy back in November and the little guy has taken up much of my time. The little guy turned 1 a couple of weeks ago. Yes, we had a birthday party for him, LOL! Ordered invitations from and the whole 9 yards! Good time had be all!

Hard to believe July is almost over and August is around the corner!

Oh well, just thought I would pop in and say, "Hello!"
