Bogie and Bacall…Together Again

Sitting at my desk today I was alerted by a text message (from one of the various news outlets that I subscribe to) of the sad news that the lovely Lauren Bacall passed away.

Theme Park Boudoir (part two)

To me, a boudoir is like a fantasy world. A place where you can relax and get away from the stress of everyday life. A place where your imagination can take you to another world. The feeling of such a magical place does not have to be reserved for only the times when you are …

The cakes that appealed to us most were cakes with makeup made of fondant adorning the top, which is most certainly suitable for the theme.

A Cure for Cotton

In a quest to try to organize my boudoir (I say “quest” because I share the boudoir with my husband and my desk doubles as my vanity…ugh…this is why you’ve yet to see photos of the “boudoir”), I was in need of one place to store all of my cotton. Cotton balls, Q-tips and my Chanel …
