That’s what people keep asking me. My sincerest apologies for the lack of posts in the past few months. What can I say? I will occasionally post on this site, but for everyday ideas, inspiration and things I’m swooning over, visit my Pinterest site!
My mom always had great quotes (thoughts, statements, mantras, etc.) to share with me when I was growing up. I didn’t realize how much I missed them until I started seeing graphic quotes pop up on Pinterest (yes, I’m obsessed). Here are some of my favorite “words to live by” right now…
Here are my top five favorites this week. Clearly I’ve got summer on the brain!

I can’t stop reading this summer. There are so many books I want to read and so little time!
I haven’t read all of these yet, but they’re all on my list. Enjoy!
I haven’t been impressed with the past couple Woody Allen films, but Midnight in Paris is awesome. Owen Wilson is undeniably fabulous. Must-see.
Here is a peek at the things that get my heart racing on Pinterest right now…
I’m totally obsessed with all things for the home – dishware, glassware, flatware, serving pieces, etc. One of my favorite finds is Fishs Eddy, a fabulous store and website based in New York. This weekend I dropped by their store in Union Square and couldn’t help myself – so many unnecessary purchases! Guess it’s a good thing I don’t live closer! If you’re ever looking for a gift, check out their site. So many clever ideas!
This weekend I was fortunate enough to attend the 137th “Run for the Roses” at Churchill Downs. I’ve been to plenty of Derby parties over the years, but let me tell you this: the Derby is something to add to your bucket list. You’ve got to experience it in person, because unlike watching the event on television, the Derby isn’t just about the two-minute race. In fact, I couldn’t even see race (although, I did bet and win!). It’s about everything leading up to the Derby in Louisville – the people, the fashion, the food, the Mint Julep’s. It’s completely unbelievable.
So, I thought it would be fun to narrow down my top five Derby moments this year and share them. It was tough (and I’m sure I’ll change my mind tomorrow), but here they are:
5. Watching Salt-n-Pepa perform “Push It” at the Barnstable Brown Party.
4. Wearing a Fascinator (totally felt like a Royal Wedding attendee).
3. Venturing into the infield on Derby Day – holy insanity! Best people watching EVER.
2. Walking in the Chambord fashion show on Oaks Day.
1. Watching the horses warm up on the track with the sun rising over head.
