(Not So) Guilty Pleasure

11 Mar

I LOVED Cherie’s challenge to scrap your guilty pleasure, this week. Here is my take on it:

I am officially a magazine-aholic. Always have been. Probably always will be. If there’s a magazine to be read anywhere in this house, I will hunt it down and read it cover to cover (back cover to front cover is how I do it!)! It all started with my American Girl magazines when I was in kindergarten. I remember how highly I coveted those issues, as they only came out every other month! From there on out, I have loved so many different publications: Self, Glamour, Shape, Health, Domino, Martha Stewart Living, Blueprint, Creating Keepsakes, People, Sunset, Psychology Today, just about anything, really! Sit me down with a stack of magazines and a coffee, and I will be entertained for hours! My obsession with the written word is truly a guily pleasure I will never give up!

So that brings me to next week’s challenge: Scrap Your Love List !

I’ve made a few of these pages before and they are always so much fun to do! Compile a list of your favorite things (it can be short or long, it’s up to you!) and display them in scrapbook form.  I love doing these pages because the list is constantly changing – there is always something new to love! Enjoy!


Latest Inspiration

23 Oct

Confession: I have a slight girl crush on Katie Lee, formerly known as Katie Lee Joel (of Billy Joel derivation). Yesterday, upon devouring People Magazine (as my mom and I do every Thursday when our subscription arrives), I came across an article featuring this chef/food critic/author and the pictures were beyond inspiring. I love her aesthetic and style.

Doesn’t her outfit here make you want to go interview for a million jobs? Hahaha, most likely you don’t feel that strongly about it, but for some reason I am so inspired by this photo! It epitomizes my fantastical, idealized notions of what living in New York would be like. If you had a multi-million dollar budget, that is. HA!

LOVE this girl’s kitchen. I remember when it was featured in Domino Magazine (June/July 2008). I was positively swooning over it. I’m also digging her cute ensemble here, in what appears to be a J.Crew blouse and sweater.
