  2. Oh no! I hate to hear Domino has gotten bad reviews. Do you have any specific links? Now I really need to go out and find a copy.

  3. I know. I had to seek outside help to lose the baby weight too. I lost all of baby weight but now I am trying to lose the weight I needed to lose before I got pregnant. C’est la vie. I was unimpressed with Domino. I was super disappointed that it wasn’t new material but was just a reprint of old material. The only thing I really liked was that I had tossed all of my old Dominos by the time the magazine went out of print so I do like having the old inspiration handy. Apparently there is going to be another one in the fall so maybe it will be new material. At least we have Lonny! I recently switched blogs over to 11gray.com, which will be about lots of baby things. Much love and I hope you are doing well! Jessica (formerly of Lavender and Lilies)

    Mmmm I love Dianes! My mouth is watering for one of their cupcakes. . . Domino sold out in the city in a minute so I have to wait to pick up my copy a friend got me till the next time I’m out on Long Island. Its not good though?!?! So heartbreaking.

  5. gosh, those bracelets are awesome. going to order some now! i noticed the price has gone up since you posted them 😉

  6. Heather says:

    SOunds like a lovely little weekend! I love your ring in the first picture, and those bracelets are fantastic! You will rock those pink jeans…enjoy!

  7. Wendy says:

    I had to have Domino too, despite the fact that it is reprints from earlier issues.

  8. Nikki says:

    Those bracelets are adorable and I love your striped top! And that crib skirt is precious!

  9. I loved the Domino mag! I disagree with these bad reviews. It is a good go to book. Also, needing those treat yoself bracelets.

  10. Krista says:

    LOVE the bracelets! Would live to know how they hold up as far as tarnishing goes 🙂

    • effortless says:

      So far so good, but I’ve only had them a week so who knows. I’ll report back in a couple more weeks.

      • Claire says:

        I’m ordering mine now and wondering what size you went with? I have larger than norm hands but want them on the small/dainty scale.

        Thanks for the introduction to sweet auburn

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
