First single, Rolling in the Deep: off her new album 21

Check out the Bedroom 8 Paradise Remix Radio Edit, it ROCKS!!

Off of her first album 19 here is Best for Last:

Adele reminds me of Etta James, her look and her sound are classic. I'd love to hear her sing Etta's 1961 hit "At Last". She could sing in an upcoming episode of Mad Men... in a Glee sorta way. (BTW, keep an eye out for my upcoming Mad Men post. Yes, I was a little late to that party, but thanks to Netflix I am almost caught up. Love the interiors, I bet set designing for that show is sooo much fun!)

I saw this interior design a while back by David Bromstead (HGTV Host of Color Splash) and today I came across this after picture of the space. First, I noticed the floor as it resembles the handscraped, wood looking tile we just installed in our master bedroom. And then I was drawn to the fun, orange lamps and artwork hung above the bed (a Bromstead original). What do you see when you look at the paintings?

Bebe Bow

My daughter loves this McDonald's commercial as do I. It is so magical and I love the message, family and friends are the best birthday gift ever! Here are the lyrics so you and your little one can sing along. Happy day Good and Glammers!

Bebe Bow made a list, of every birthday wish. there was a pony, a seahorse, a moo. A doll, paddle ball and a hotair balloon. But when she started to see, her friends and her family, she said, whoa oh oh oh how happy can one girl be... how happy can one girl be.

Cheeky Pillows

Today while reading Apartment Therapy I fell in love with these super cheeky pillows from Alexandra Ferguson. Ferguson is featured as one of 10 new independent artisans and designers to watch on Apartment Therapy. Read more about her in this AT article, check out her Etsy shop here and read her blog today. I just love the "Go to the Gym" and "Let's Make Out" pillows, I hope you enjoy too!

Orange Crush

Last year Nicky Hilton wore this orange striped dress to the 14th Annual Los Angeles Antiques Show Preview Party at the Barker Hanger at the Santa Monica Airport. I loved it!

Inspired by Nicky, I've put together a more casual look for Spring. Pair the orange striped dress with a purple cardigan and double buckle belt (worn over cardigan). I prefer nude accessories with this look. But hey an orange heel or purple handbag would add some punch too.

I've had so many people asking me if I knew what song is featured on the new BHLDN website (see my previous post here).

The song titled "What are we waiting for" is by Amiina, an Icelandic group made up of six, read more about them on their BIO page here. Want more? Head on over to their website http://www.amiina.com/ and here is a link to youtube to hear the song performed live. Enjoy!

Glam Garden Goodies

So last week Punxsutawney Phil, groundhog of Groundhog Day fame, predicts an early Spring. And judging from the 88 degree, balmy, Florida day we had today, I'm thinking spring is already here for us. What better time to get a jump on getting the garden/backyard/balcony/rooftop deck ready for Spring? Here are a few of my favorite finds that will add a touch of fun to your outdoor space.
