House Tweaker: My Closet Makeover!

There's something about starting your day with an organized closet.  It's like for the first few minutes of the day, as you're deciding what to wear, you can look around and say to yourself "Oh yeah! I got this!"  The rest of the day may fall apart, but at least you had a good start!  The very first thing I did when I got my advance for Candy Cocktails was order my new closet.  The original closet (from 1948) wasn't bad, but it definitely wasn't super functional.  I wanted drawers, more hanging space and a built in hamper.  I decided to go with Easy Closets because I liked designing the closet myself online and my husband said he would install it for me.  There's a lot of prep work involved-measuring, cutting, etc...but he said it was fairly easy to install.  One thing's for sure- my days start off a whole lot better now!

Vivi & me on the beach last year!

Hello! Hello!  I just thought I would write a quick post to let you know that I'm officially on vacation! My husband is actually off of work for two whole weeks, which is very rare and amazing!  We will be taking full advantage of it by spending our time on the beach without phones or computers and I CAN NOT wait!!!  See you later alligators!

Style Inspiration: Miami Vice

In my mind I've always thought of Miami Vice as one of THE BEST TV SHOWS EVER MADE!!! But then I unfortunately happened upon an actual episode of it and I was like, "Ummmm this is THE WORST TV SHOW EVER MADE!!!" The story lines were really bad and the acting was painful.  Needless to say it was disappointing.  I realized that what I liked was the idea of Miami Vice, or rather ME living the Miami Vice lifestyle!  YAY-UH!!! I could totally picture myself in a pastel suit, palm trees, the warm balmy wind in my hair, Tubbs next to me in the Ferrari...but until I can move to Miami and realize that dream, I found a building that looked kind of Art Deco-ish and threw on some pastels and neon.
