High-Heeled Love: Weekly Round-Up 1.25.15
I appreciated the honesty in Glitter and Gloss's post "Ten Excuses I've Made for Myself" for why she hasn't stuck with a commitment to get healthy. Let's face it; we all let ourselves off the hook, and sometimes it's just time to admit the excuses aren't good enough.

Considering our new puppy, this post "What They Should Have Told Me Before I Rescued My Pitt Bull" on the Huffington Post really resonated with the Mister and me.

Continuing the doggy theme, I also really enjoyed this post "Letting Go of Expectations: A Dog's Wisdom on People and Life" from the Tiny Buddha. Whether you have pets or not, it's definitely worth a read.

This Oatmeal Coconut Cookie Scrub, which is featured on Life with the Hawleys, sounds heavenly and looks super easy to make. With all the cold weather, a little pampering is just what the doctor ordered.

I confess...

I cannot believe that I missed another week of blogging. Sometimes it just feels like things are too crazy. Fortunately, I have wine and coffee to keep me sane.


I confess...

Our pup is growing up way too fast. He's getting so big, but he's still such a cuddle bug. Here's hoping that doesn't change.



I confess...

I STILL haven't shared my word for 2015 or my resolutions....which may be an indication as to how well they are going. LOL.

I think I need to dedicate a morning this weekend to getting my blog posts up to date and scheduled.

I confess...

I'm getting really excited about the art show that I'm helping organize. If you're in South Carolina, you really ought to plan to come to Cayce on April 11 and join us.

Also, I was on the radio to promote it, so please give the show a listen. I come on at about 14 min 30 sec.



I confess...

I need advise. The Mister scored this piece of furniture for free for us this week, and we plan to paint it and use it as a bar/sideboard in the dining room. What color would you paint it?

High-Heeled Love: Weekly Round-Up 1.11.15
Of all the rooms in my house, the kitchen is probably the one that I most want to de-clutter and get organized. So I was excited to find the Whip Your Kitchen into Shape challenge, organized by I Heart Planners. We're about a week into the challenge, so some catch-up will be necessary, but  if I double-up, you'll be caught up by the end of the week.

This list of things to tweak about your life, which was shared on Fast Company's blog, is simple and totally do-able changes that will make a big difference in your life. My favorite was to think about your weekend plans on Wednesday night.

Like many other smart phone users, I use my iPhone as my primary camera, so I'm always on the hunt for a new photo app to improve my pics. Krystal's Kitsch has a great little of useful apps, which can make editing quicker and easier.

Get your yum on with Little Dove Creations' four gourmet grilled cheese sandwich ideas because, let's be real, grilled cheese and soup are staples when the weather gray and dreary.
