My Spring 2014 must-have: the tulle skirt

 Spring 2014 must have – the tulle skirt!

Happy Friday Blog Friends!  All the cold weather is making me anxious for spring.  With spring thoughts I always start thinking of fashion so I created this style board on Polyvore — my newest obsession & time waster – but it is so much fun.  I am so coveting a tulle skirt for spring 2014.  And I am loving the colour combination of navy & pink — so fresh and young-looking and totally girly-glam.  Perfect in fashion and in your home decor.

Spring 2014 must have - tulle skirt!

Polyester shirt
$54 – sportsgirl.com.au

It’s also kind of reminiscent of Carrie Bradshaw in #SATC — how I miss that show.  Anyhoo, have you tried Polyvore yet?  Are you ready for spring as much as I am?  It’s Friday, and I am so ready for the weekend!!  Hope you have a great one!!

Glamorously yours,

Christine xoxo

Happy November!!!

I can’t believe it’s November already…..the days are definitely starting to get chillier — my daughters wore their winter coats to school today – Yikes!!  But you know what that means…….it’s time to start thinking of  Christmas and the holiday season!!!  🙂

This week I will be sharing with you my Santa list of my 5 most favourite Glam Slam decor items I want from the jolly old man in the red suit!!!  But tomorrow I will be guest blogging on Vanessa Francis’ blog Decor Happy talking about one of my client projects:  “The Glamorous Kitchen” for her new series on Wednesdays entitled Work in Progress.  So be sure to pop by there tomorrow to read by blog posting!!

 

In the meantime, to get you into the Holiday spirit, here is the cover of Style at Home’s December issue!!!  Can’t Wait!!

If your home is craving some glamour, then contact me online or in person!  I’d love to help!

I’d also love to hear what you will be putting on your Santa’s list this year!!  Please share!! 

Today I’m a guest over at Staci Edwards Blog!!

I’m so excited to be guest blogging today on Staci Edward’s blog for her new feature called “Favourite Interior Tuesdays.”  And I can’t wait to share with you my favourite interior designed by Melissa Warner from Massucco Warner Miller, a design trio of friends. 

Her West Hollywood apartment was featured in House Beautiful magazine earlier this year and I absolutely love it because it is so GLAM….or as I like to say, it is a “Glam Slam” in interior design.  If I was single and living on my own this is just the style – modern and glamorous – that I would want for my apartment. 

So please go take a look at:  Staci Edwards’ Blog

GlamaMama hangin’ with Steven & Chris

That’s right….I’ve become a Design Show groupie…..attending the taping of different design shows as an audience member!!  Last month it was the Nate Berkus Show and this month it was the Steven and Chris design show….good Canadian boys!! 🙂  What can I say….I love my Design Shows!!

The audience consisted of various Design, Lifestyle and Mommy Bloggers..a great audience made up of all women except for 1 token male screaming and applauding for one of the cutest gay design couples in Canada!!

Check us all out at the taping of the show on October 19th, 2010

Apparently Chris is not a DIYer (like me) so he stayed backstage while Steven showcased his DIY segment — How to create two beautiful and rich looking memento frames  — easy and inexpensive to create!  Here is the end result!!

Jenny McCarthy was their special guest — gorgeous and oh so skinny!!  She talked about her new book “Love, Lust & Faking It: The Naked Truth About Sex, Lies, and True Romance”.   Sounds like there are quite a few naughty bits in this book….so I MUST read it!!

Chef Rodney Bowers made his infamous Pulled Pork on air….and let me tell you….it was delish.  How do I know it was delish?  Well, after the show, the producers put together a luncheon for all the bloggers with Steven and Chris.  That was a nice surprise.  Click here to get the recipe for Rodney’s Pulled Pork sandwich….look how good it looked!!

P.S.  My name wasn’t on the original Steven and Chris invite list that went out to the blogger attendees so I was a guest of  my friend Tamara from Wonder Moms.  That is why my blog isn’t on the blogger list outlined on their website.  Hopefully they add it on. 🙂
