Obsession: Fallon Lion Wrap Bracelet

I’m a Leo.

We Leo’s obviously love lions.

I love what a lion represents and it seemed fitting that one be my company logo.

So when I was peering into the jewelry case at Barney’s and spied the Fallon Lion Wrap bracelet, I couldn’t leave without it.

I love the take on the lion door knocker.

My one of my company colors is orange so had to get that version of the bracelet.

It’s a business expense, right?

And with the $160 price point it didn’t break the bank,

so…..

I had to get the earrings too.

Hello Yellow

  Hello Yellow

I am officially obsessing over the color yellow.

Maybe the daffodils did it.  So bright and cheery on my breakfast room table.

Yellow was my favorite color as a kid.

 My room was wall papered in a delicate yellow rose pattern.

 Today I’d do a little something like this

 

 Love the curtains in this room

Yellow shoes are awesome.

 I have four pairs myself.

My pal Heather is not a fan of yellow when used in home decor, but she has no problem throwing a little splash yellow goodness on her feet.

Everyone should.

  Yellow can knock on my door anytime
