Toddler | Good Morning

Awoke to this sassy little future fashion designer at my bedside. {“Plans” in hand.} She even brought over my wire mannequin.

Daddy took Addison to her first dental appointment {BLOG post to follow.} so Delaney and I got to bond.

Topics: Fashion, skin care & food.

DEA3’s fashion planning lasted a mere 7 minutes. She quickly moved onto lathering her entire body in lotion! Lastly, a naked lotion-covered-girly-girl requested “a pancake wiff butter, mustard, syrup & Catsup.” for breakfast. {I just gagged while typing this.}

Cheers to having separate one-on-one time with your kiddos!

My Home Office Inspiration :: Dwell Studio & hp

Dwell Studio, a sweet jewel box nestled in the heart of SoHo, is where I found fashionably elegant decor and great inspiration for my future home office — thanks to Dwell Studio Owner, Christiane Lemieux and hp.

At this event, an elite group of bloggers, including my sister Kristin and myself encircled the loveliest coffee table and lounged on a collection of chic furniture while the delightful Christiane gave us need-based home office style suggestions. Goal: “Make it personal. Functional. Your own. Organized.” ~Christiane

Each blogger shared their home office dilemmas and were eager to browse the Dwell Stuio showroom & the web for lush wallpapers, brilliant fabrics, quality trinkets and the latest furniture to create an inspiration board.

Thanks to hp, we were able to scour the Dwell Studio website {quickly} by tapping and swiping the touch-screen monitor of the hp ENVY 20 TouchSmart all-in-one Desktop PC… Wow! We used another super user-friendly hp product too, and it’s WIRELESS! The hp Photosmart 6520 e-all-in-one Printer allowed us to upload from our smart devices, print and use lab-quality photos on our boards. This printer is ideal and a MUST for every home office! Totally inspiring!

In no time, my inspiration board was filled with a myriad of architectural charm, whimsy and a splash of glam.

This photo was taken just outside the Dwell Studio door! I absolutely love the lion head, Corinthian scrolls & dab of color.

My sister and I shared our creations with the group; it was fantastic to see such an eclectic mix.

One of my grandest experiences. I love being a mommy blogger. Thanks to Dwell Studio and hp for a phenomenal time! Now, to get organized!

Happy Decorating!
