Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay. It's difficult to watch the news or scroll through Twitter when just the words "rape" and "molest" …

Holiday Reds and Romantic Florals


I'm still a sucker for traditional pumpkins and mums for a more fall-inspired table setting, but this year I was feeling inspired by more romantic colors and pretty flowers, like the beautiful red roses my boyfriend keeps continuously replenished. :)


I picked up these large mirror plates at ROSS last year for about $4 a piece, and have used them in so many different ways for entertaining. They can by used for displaying candles, and they're perfect as fancy serving platters, for example. You can also find them in smaller sizes to use as mirrored charger plates.

Lined up in the center of the table, they made for a gorgeous mirrored table runner. I really wanted to highlight the red flowers and show that you don't have to have a ton of color and fabric to create beautiful centerpiece. The reds reflected in the mirrors makes the centerpiece appear much more filled-in.

The mini dessert bowls are perfect for scattering mini bouquets throughout the centerpiece, while red pillar candles add to the romantic look. Red apples and pomegranates give the table a holiday touch, but you could swap them out for more flowers and candles to use this centerpiece for any other occasion.







With added flowers or fruit, you can get creative with the color palette. This bold cranberry red also goes well with blush pink, peach, fuschia, and dark rich purples.

  2. Love how you decorated this table with the red roses. The addition of the candle and the apples is fantastic. I never thought of roses as Fall decorations but they really look great the way you styled this. Thanks for sharing this with us.
