Like many Colorado residents, I am very dedicated to my dogs. I have special wood steps allowing them access to my (and their) bed, my shower was specifically designed to accommodate a detachable head (for bathing), and the car remains filled with hair and Mt.

Winter GIVEAWAY!!

If you’ve worked with me and are familiar with this blog, you know of my affinity for Chan Luu scarves. BCL*, I’d tried every make of designer scarf: Burberry, YSL, Faliero Sarti, Calypso to name a few but once I tried Chan Luu, I never looked back. So for this Winter, I am giving one… [Cont.]

Fabulous Faux Fur!

Posted by & filed under Home.

A disclaimer: I am quite surprised to be recommending anything from Z Gallerie because, in my experience, the quality is often lacking. However, this chinchilla faux fur blanket is sublime. I don’t know why and I don’t know how, but it’s literally the softest thing I’ve ever felt. So gift it out or keep it… [Cont.]
