Let me start by saying that this vacation was way more champagne than beer....and thank you mom and dad for buying us dinner and excursions all week because I managed to spend over $800 alone, without excursions and dinners. I spent the last week in Maui where I turned a fabulous shade of bronze. I had the best vacation of my life. While in Maui with my family and best friend-sans Vinnie because he had to work- I became a beach bum, snorkeled every day, finally realized that I too can achieve the perfect "beach hair", met pro-surfers and pro kite-boarders, learned how to SURF-thanks to Adam and Jeff (the above mentioned pro's taught us for FREE! It helps to have big boobs and be blonde and have 2 sisters with me who are equally as cute as myself, apparently), had Adam take me and my best friend kayaking and touched a turtle (a HUGE turtle)- and you thought I would paddle- ha! We found someone to paddle for us- champagne baby, champagne! We went on a champagne catamaran cruise, went to a luau and got pulled up on stage (like a Rock Star!), ate the most amazing fish of my life, drank too many Bloody Mary's and corona's, rocked my $44 cowboy hat that Vinnie had a meltdown when I purchased-EVERY SINGLE DAY, saw the best magician ever- I HIGHLY reccomend Warren and Annabelle's, and learned how to move on and put the past behind me. All in all this was a crazy learning experience. I managed to stay on "Maui time" all week and only freaked out about a schedule once, ok maybe twice but in my defence I am a natural planner. I plan- it's what I do. I'll post more when I upload the rest of us surfing, the underwater camera's and my sister's camera.
I haven't ever touched on bathrooms, however I am in love love love with this console sink vanity from Pottery Barn. Since we are planning bathroom remodels this year, I have been on the prowl for a copy....ta da! Found one! PB's version $2299 is insane (1st pic). But have faith! Home Depot's version of this fabulous console sink in only $999. Sweet deal!
I would just like to apologize for being MIA for the past month or so. With the holidays being so hectic, I could barely check my e-mails let alone update my blog. But 2009 brings resolutions and mine is to post at least 1 great find a week. So if you are on the hunt for something, send me pictures- let me help you find it for less $! Happy New Year!
I'm just a 20 something living and loving life (and champagne) and everything that life has to offer. I love diamonds and pearls, love dressing up, and I am a total girly-girl. I love to travel, love the beach, and love the smell of freshly washed linens and sheets. I love summer-time and the ocean, and try to stay trendy. I love getting my nails and hair done, but I am just as quick to kick back with the boys and drink a beer- some would call me a bar stool bum. When champagne rules your life, you have to be open to sudden atmospheric changes that may occur-like a houseful of boys wanting beer and wings-so you adapt. I am married to a fabulous boy named Vinnie and we have a cat and a dog and a new addition to the family- Gianna Isabelle our baby girl. Decorating my house is my passion/ obsession. Even though we aren't made of money, it can be done on a budget and I am always in search of the better deal, so hopefully I can help you find your perfect glass of champagne for the price of a beer!
