Coffee and Cigarettes

It has been a long week I'm normally not one to share all the details about my life but I'm feeling kinda bummed and just felt like sharing. Wednesday afternoon i started getting heartburn then i made the mistake of drinking milk cause i thought it would help. Cut to horrible pain and throwing up all night i didn't get any sleep till the next morning. I also got behind on work so now I'm working through the weekend . I think i might have a stomach ulcer i have all the symptoms so I'm hoping my trip to the doctor will tell me something good next week.

All you people out there with acid reflex and heart burn issues i commend you! The diet you can have is soo limited. I also can't have caffeine or smoke which is probably why I'm in such a crappy mood right now. So i leave you with a depressing song lol and am hoping your all having a better weekend then I am.

Sorry for my lack of blogging I'll be back soon

Diy Friday Decoupage Light Switch Covers

Here is one of the projects I have been working on for my moms place. I didn't want to just paint them a color and I didn't want to pay $10 per cover so i figured i would pick up some pretty paper and break out the modge podge lol.
Here's what you will need

Modge podge (i used glossy finish)
white light switch covers $1 each( i would recommend using wood if you can find them )
12x12 scrap book paper( no glitter kinds it makes it harder lol )
exact of knife
sponge brush or medium sized paint brush

If your using your old switch covers clean them first.
Measure and cut the paper you need ahead of time it goes faster this way.
A big tip if your using metal switch covers is brush on back of paper and cover and let sit for 30-60 seconds till it gets tacky this will help it from sliding all over the place.
Put on paper and smooth down edges and let dry for about 15 min.
Now brush on your first layer if you wanna slather it on make sure you smooth it out so it doesn't dry lumpy,
Do about 5 or 6 coats let dry about 15-20 min between each coat
Let dry overnight then put them up!
A fun way to add a pop of color and pattern to a white wall

If you have any questions or problems with this let me know in the comments I'll be happy to answer them for you . Also link me if you decide to try it yourself I'd love to see it.
Have a great weekend Kittens!

Moroccan Living room Inspiration

If you have been reading my post lately I've been talking about alot of decorating and renovating my moms house. So today I'm going to show you some inspiration photos I have been going off of. I still need to find alot more room decor but the bigger items are coming together quickly. We decided on going with a modern Moroccan decor since we can't change the rug in the living room there will be alot more black then we want. But were going to add lots of colors everywhere else to make it pop. I can't wait till were all done so i can share hopefully by the end of summer .
So here is some inspiration

 These are the curtains we got for the living room from anthropologie.
These pretty lanterns from onekingslane

Weekend Adventure Foxwoods and big win!

Image source here

Saturday we went to fox woods casino in Connecticut for my aunts birthday. I had never been there before and i was so surprised how big it was. It felt like I was going away on vacation It's amazing there.

We only spent the day there but it was worth waking up super early for . I have never gambled before and wasn't to keen on the idea of spending money and only having the chance to get something in return lol. An hour before we left i was losing on the slot machines when i went to the poker machine and on a random draw i got a royal flush and bam i won $1,000 . Saying i was shocked was an understatement lol I'm normally an unlucky person I hardly win anything big so to win that was insane!

 I'm a sucker for cute shopping places they have an indoor shopping village it was adorable and they have several fountains and waterfalls inside . I really wanna go back again and maybe stay over night this place is huge and we only saw about half of it . I'm not sure If I'm going to gamble again though lol
Also on the NY bridge on the way home i snapped this pic the sunset was pink and purple i wish i would have taken a better picture though.
So what did everyone do this weekend?

Top 5 Favorite Sale Websites!

In the past year I have discovered so many amazing flash sale websites and saved myself alot of money as well. I'm able to get great things  i want and need on a budget. Alot of these flash sale websites have high end items that are still pretty pricey but if you really take the time to look they also have some great deals. I'm currently decorating for my mom her living room and dinning room and I have found some many great items and am still on the hunt. I am signed up for a few of these sites but i wanted to share which are my favorite and tell you a little about them.

p.s I'm not getting paid to edndorse them i just wanted to share lol

This was the first website I found and my top favorite. They sell amazing home decor and lots of kitchen stuff to . I have bought a handful of cake stands here at half off. They also have great customer service which is important when ordering from these types of sites.
You also get $15 toward your purchase if you follow the link on my page.

This one is similar to one kings lane , lots of home decor and some kitchen stuff as well. They have a beautiful selection of some great stuff and some good deals on furniture.

This site i would say is targeted to the younger generation and for people who love the more modern style. They have a large selection of home decor,fun gifts,clothes,prints, and also food and pet stuff .

For the Mommy's out there this site is for you ! They have so many adorable baby and kids clothes,toys,stuff for babies room and stuff for mom. I'm not a mommy but some of my friends are now and this is a great site for gifts as well .

This site is for the fashionistas. They mainly sell lots of clothes,handbags,sunglasses,luggage and more. Look out they do some great high end designer sales and if you pay attention you can get some great stuff for sale prices.
