Maison Moschino Hotel in Milan

just another excuse to make a trip over to Europe! im gonna keep researching some awesome designer hotels but this will be all on them today, i promise.

Eloise Suite at the Plaza

how absolutely whimsical and dreamy!!  i would have died if i stayed at a place as beautiful as this as a little girl.  scratch that.  i would still die!  this was designed by the one-and-only Betsey Johnson (one of my favorite designers for her girly, frilly dresses that always push the envelope).

Hotel Missoni in Edinburgh

i drooled a little when i came across this hotel.  the vibrant colors and mix of detailed patterns turn this hotel literally into a piece of art. i WILL make it a point to stay here at some point in my life. i can promise you that :).

holy moly

{via Oh Joy!}
how absolutely fantastic is this purse?! its pretty much perfection in my book.
sparkly? check.
girly? check.
elegant? check.
sassy? double check.

you can purchase this beauty here.


so thanks to Storyofmylifesquared (check their cute blog out!) for introducing me to ACW and their ridiculously low priced makeup. this was the loot i racked up (all together ~$80) which should last me for quite awhile.  i haven't bought eye shadow in what seems like forever because i hate shelling our $14 or $18 a pop. with prices like $6.99 or $7.99 how can i not stock up!

I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances. ~Martha Washington

i have been trying to stay as positive as possible recently even when unfortunate things happen to me or when certain people do things that are crappy.  i can't dwell on the negative because there are so many other wonderful things/people in my life that i should concentrate on and be thankful for. i would encourage everyone to do the same with things seem to get tough or unbearable.

happy monday kiddos!

New Amy Butler Bedding at BB&B

how awesome are these bedding sets from Amy Butler? i have always been a huge fan of her fabric and how cheerful and colorful all the patterns are. i cannot wait to get my hands on this set:

I want this duvet cover and use the flower bouquet side.  I think this will look great with my slate gray walls (which will be painted shortly) in my bedroom.  It makes me happy just thinking about it!!! :)

If you want a set for yourself, go check out all the options over at Bed Bath and Beyond.
