Black Friday on premier designers brands is on and they are up to 40% off. If you like something to think twice all the bags will be sold out pretty soon. I just ordered two and I will think about which one to keep when they arrive home. Enjoy Shopping
Nordstrom fall sale is here and here are my favorites for this season :
The Half- Yearly sale at Nordstrom’s started a few days ago, it will end on June the 3rd. So don’t think twice, if you see something you like just buy it and don’t hesitate lol
Below are few of my favorites, and they still have available sizes. I already bought 4 items before publishing this post. Can you guess which ones?
My son told me the other day: ” Mom I’ve never seen snow, ” in a very sad voice, and I realized yeah he is right! I remember the last winter when we went to Lake Tahoe, I told my husband: “This is the last time we will go to Lake Tahoe when it’s snowing.” It was freezing and I got so sick.
But my son’s sad voice stayed in my head and I said okay Rasha, let’s go show this little guy some snow lol. And I’m so glad we did because the kids had so much fun.
Well after a long break, like really long this time almost 5 months, I’m back to blogland with a little surprise
Yup, we are pregnant and it wasn’t that easy for the past 5 months 🙂 It is my first pregnancy so I didn’t know that morning sickness is the worst, they should call it “all day sickness” :). But thanks God I’m feeling so much better now so that is why I’m back to blogging …For the past 5 months, I didn’t check my blog, I didn’t even read any of my favorite design blogs, the only thing I googled was: how to get rid of heartburn, severe pain in my chest, how to stop morning sickness 😀
So stay tuned I have a lot of posts coming soon and I’m hoping you will like them.I really miss you and miss your comment guys 🙂
Hello all. Before I announce the name of the winner of the $30 gift card from Fashion to Figure, I want to share with you some picture of the Filoli Gardens in The Bay Area.
My friend was visiting from Lebanon so my husband gave me the idea of showing her Filoli. Before I share with you my favorite pictures that I’ve taken during the trip, I want to give a brief introduction about these beautiful gardens.
“Located 30 miles south of San Francisco, Filoli is an historic site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation and one of the finest remaining country estates of the early 20th century. Whether enjoying its beauty or pursuing its educational opportunities, we invite you to explore this cherished community resource.” (Source: http://www.filoli.org/)

Hello My Champagne Taste Readers! I’m Carrie from Lovely Etc. It is such a pleasure to be joining you here on my new friend Rasha’s site. Rasha has really great style and I have been having a great time getting to know her.
I am all about making my home unique and meaningful – without spending much actual money to do so. So I thought I would share some of my favorite tips to make that happen.
1. It is almost never too far gone!
I love searching yard sales and thrift stores for great vintage finds and various other junk. Now, to be honest, even what I call great finds, most other people would call junk. But there is almost nothing that can’t be turned into something amazing.
For example, this sad, forlorn cabinet. Loose glass, peeling veneer, no back – it wasn’t too pretty to begin with.
Some repairs and a bit of paint and it no longer seemed ready for the trash at all.
2. Look past what it is – think about what it could be.
As you can see, I love vintage details but I have no problem making things a little more up to date. I’d much rather make something old more relevant than see it sitting neglected in the basement in ‘original condition’.
I found this somewhat over-the-top old clock at a thrift store. It definitely had gorgeous curves but was not exactly my style.
A little paint and a mirror from Hobby Lobby and now it is right at home in 2012.
3. Forget what everyone else is doing – do your own thing.
It is always a thrill making something completely unique, something that no one else has. Like my biggest and most favorite project yet – my painted floors.
Our nasty, stinky carpet had to go but there was no money to replace it. Which led to a great idea – I simply painted the plywood subfloors.
Now go forth and rethink lots of old junk in completely original ways! Okay, so maybe that is a lot of pressure. Geez, it’s a lot of pressure for me too. How about just get out there and be creative and see what happens.
Thanks for having me as your guest! Stop by Lovely Etc. anytime to see what I’ve been up to lately.
