Eat, Pray, Love, What??

So, I must admit, when I first realized that the book "Eat, Pray, Love" was made into a movie, I was intrigued. Having read the book a while ago, even while hastily done, it was inspiring! I have never considered myself a person who has a knee-jerk reaction to go on a self-help binge but this book spoke to me in a "feeling, change" kind of a way.

So, over this long weekend, while contemplating life, love, family, work and friendships, I had to break down and watch this movie. Interesting.....pause....tears....oh, no! What? What this movie brought up was more surprising to me than it was to my weekend guest!! Well, I say all this to say - if you're in the mood for a movie/book that will open a well to self actualization or self discovery, then try this!

More in depth analysis to come.... In the meantime, enjoy your memorial day weekend!!

"People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life."

A Weekend Crush Revealed!!

Over the weekend, I had the chance to get a few of my favorite desserts and enjoy beautiful weather outdoors. While tasting a decadent macaron and reading my fave magazines, I couldn't help but realize that I have been neglecting myself. You know, once you get to that ripe ol' age of "30", ugh - I can't believe I even typed the number - there are so many extras that you have to take into account.

So, without pause, I made an agreement with myself; to take time for me, to enjoy life, to take care of myself and put as much time, money and effort into me as I do into anything else, to get rid of toxins, to always stop and smell the macarons!

My Love Affair With Everything Reupholstered.....

Gosh, they say every 7 years your taste changes, and boy oh boy I am certainly loving everything vintage and reupholstered these days. The crisp feel and classic look of these interiors are amazing.
