Setting the Mood: Beauty Sleep
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

fashion-sleeping-beautyFun fact: I’m narcoleptic.  Okay, maybe not clinically speaking, but show me a pillow and I’ll show you a coma.  I’m probably one of four people who has ever fallen asleep in Las Vegas… at a nightclub… with a giant costumed Elmo dancing right above her head.  If I were to be a fairytale princess, I would undoubtedly be Sleeping Beauty.  As a matter of fact, I should be much more beautiful due to the amount of beauty sleep I’ve amassed over the years.  I once had a boyfriend who told me that he was comforted by how restfully I slept.  He thought it meant I had a clear conscience.  Ha.  And while I’ve fallen asleep on dates forcing them to leave their phone numbers on tabloid covers and scraps of  napkin, my narcolepsy has saved me from many a late night pizza delivery.  So, my unpredictable sleep patterns aren’t all bad as long as you don’t mind my snoring.

Setting the Mood: The Daisies of Our Lives
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

daisy duke flowersTruth be told, I don’t care much for daisies.  I often lump them into the same category as carnations, which are the cantaloupe of flowers in my book.  However, there is something quite sunny about a daisy.  And who doesn’t love playing “He Loves Me Not” with the petals?  Honestly, you have a better chance of getting an accurate read from a bud than boy these days.  So when you combine daisies with denim, you’ve got a combination that even Catherine Bach would stamp her seal of approval on.

Setting the Mood: Cake, Cake, Cake, Cake
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

birthday inspiration boardI love birthdays.  Sure, we share our birthdays with approximately 19 million other people (except for you leap year babies, you’re special), but it certainly is nice to have a day dedicated especially to you.  This is a great time to kick up your heels and get wild with a raucous crew or take a personal day to pamper yourself and maybe spend some time alone.  Whatever your cup of tea may be, there’s nothing wrong with celebrating yourself– just not in a Stassi Schroeder type of way.  I suggest spending at least fifteen minutes of completely quiet time reflecting on your year and being thankful for making it through.  Then pop open a bottle of champagne and do whatever the hell you want… it’s your birthday afterall!  In case you haven’t guessed, today is my special day and in case it slipped your mind and you forgot to purchase something sweet for me, you really can’t go wrong with anything cashmere, diamond clad or lacy… I won’t even be mad it’s late.

Setting the Mood: Garnet Girl
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

garnet burgundy oxblood inspiration boardNot only is the garnet January’s gemstone, it also happens to be one of my favorite colors behind black, white and grey and closely followed by ballet pink.  And wouldn’t you know, January just so happens to be my birth month.  The deep red hue most often associated with garnets (did you know they could also be green, yellow, purple, and orange?) is a perfect shade for the chilly winter months.  It looks great in everything from outerwear to accessories to your pouty little lips.  It would appear that I’m not the only fan of the shade as it was quite popular at this year’s Golden Globes.

Setting the Mood: Vortex- The Escape
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

winter inspiration boardHappy Monday– and welcome, polar vortex.    While literal deadly cold temperature descend on most of the country, the west coast seems to have been spared.  So, I’ll leave out the fact that I’m writing this in my sports bra with the sliding glass doors open ’cause that would just be cruel.  Speaking of complete and utter sadism, forcing one to leave the toasty confines of his or her home just to enter a few numbers in an excel sheet and return banal emails seems completely unreasonable.  Sadly, not all executives share my exemplary work ethic and therefore many of you have braved the vortex bundled in winter’s bulkiest wares.  And while you may think there’s no other way to survive such flesh freezing temperatures without resembling that of the Michelin Man in said puffer coat and Uggs, it is actually possible to look wonderful in a environment resembling less than a storybook Winter Wonderland.
