New Chandelier

Our new chandelier that we bought from Ikea is finally up! We got it about a year ago and my husband somehow never got around to install it.

Here is the before the new chandelier and the after: just subtle and simple

My design work

I realize I haven't done any post on Graphic Design, and it is what I do every day. I am a web graphic designer in a corporate world and I can truly said that I love what I do. I love to create something simple and transform it into something beautiful. Here are some of my work. Design is a plan for arranging elements in such a way as best to accomplish a particular purpose. — Charles Eames I have always been fascinated with all aspects of design...from print to web design, fashion, interior design, and I recently just got hooked on photography.

10 min meal

It has been a busy week for me so I am definitely glad that it is Friday. Going to lay out at the beach and hang out with all 4 of my little monsters. This morning, I was running late for work but I actually made really yummy lunch. It seriously only took me 10 minutes to make it and well 10 min to take the pix and upload it too:) Doesnt it look delish. My secret? Bertolli Chicken Florentine and Farlalle.

Hope you guys have a great weekend..and here is a new pictures of my lil monsters.

The simple things

Simple things make me happy, whether strolling along the park with hubby and puppies, or just relaxing at the beach. Even when decorating our home, simplicity is the main key. Sometimes, the small simple things make a house a home, you don't really need to have expensive furniture decorate your place. When decorating our home, we just worked with what we have and were pretty happy with the results. Here are some of the simple things in our little nest. A happy home ::}} Laugh Often, Live Well, Love Much hmm I need to dust often! =D My parents got these vases for us from South Dakota, so we drove 24 hours to drive these back to Virginia Beach.O_o Didn't think we would paint our wall chocolate brown, but we sure did! adding white chandeliers to bring out the color. Hope you enjoy the little tour, to view more of the before and after pictures...please visit our nest
