dress up your orchid

have you ever purchased a beautiful orchid to give as a gift (or to keep and admire yourself)? you know those ugly little hair clips or green twist ties that come attached to that fabulous orchid? yeah...change those out. just use a piece of raffia, twine or string (i like to use bakers twine) and tie a nice tight bow holding the orchid to the stake in place of the clips/ties. you can even use a little moss to bump up the chic factor by tucking a bit under your bow before you pull it taut - bingo - a well dressed orchid.

lately...

i've been absent around these parts lately...busy with work, life and loooots of puppy snuggles. here are some things that are currently making me happy:


1. my new sheepskin rug from ikea, draped over a chair in our living room.
2. mulling spice from trader joes. i like to boil a few tablespoons on the stove...it makes
the whole apartment smell so cozy!
3. my new sparkly fall flats...from payless!
4. this happened yesterday and i can't get enough of these two together. xo


i also decorated the buffet table in our dining room for halloween. i'm not usually too excited about halloween, but this year i was feeling festive so i went with a black + mercury glass theme with some fun hanging orange/black paper pinwheels! aaand in case you didn't know...black candles are ΓΌber chic :)

have you decorated for halloween yet?
