Do you have a "must have" product that you just cannot live without?

Over the past few months, I have promised myself that I will create an office space worth working for!! This inlcudes a large work table that I will refinish, a few shelves for my books that are so neglected, a few memo boards, a great vintage lamp and hopefully a refinished all-purpose side table. Now, this would seem like a small feat for the average DIY-er but for me, it will be a monumental endeavor. To assist me with getting it all together, I started collected images of spaces that I like!
So, what do you guys think?

So, maybe I need to preface that I am a Net-a-Porter fanatic! I love their dresses, shoes, handbags, accessoies - well, lets just say I love it all! Now while I may have to go without eating for a month to afford the dress I so desire, I think it will still be worth it. And, the way I see it - it will allow me to achieve two goals, drop a few "lbs" and have a fab dress that will fit!!! So, imagine my amazement when I realized that they publish a weekly online magazine that gives you all the goodness that is net-a-porter in one glance. Here are my weeks' faves! I am really lovng these rose gold pumps!!
In the wake of this wonderful spring weather, I also wanted to do my annual "spring cleaning" overhaul. With this in mind, I made the decision that I would find a great desk for my office and repurpose it white. My inspiration of sorts came from this image - I love the feel of white and black and the fact that colors create small touches across the board! I just imagine myself on a sunny Saturday afternoon reading my latest book: "How to Be a Better Foodie: A Bulging Little Book for the Truly Epicurious." Can't wait until I finish, so I can give you all the details!

As Houstonians (can't believe that it's been two years since my transplant), we are very accustomed to short winters and early spring! So, at this time of the year, we are well into our spring wardrobe and style inspiration from the streets of Paris makes me think of all the various ways I can make my wardrobe pieces work fr me.
Now, while I know boots aren't the go to accessories for Spring, these animal print booties coupled with this flirty blush dress is perfect for a mild Spring day!
Love these palazzo pants with the floppy hat!
These boots may be a tad hot for spring but this outfit is very utility chic and hot!
Sexy, and so very me - a long, stripped, sheer boatneck dress~ this is a spring essential!
And the ultimate avant garde, LWD - a girl's staple piece for the summer! While the sleeves maybe great for a Midwest summer, I am not sure how we would handle this here in Houston! But I would really be willing to try!
