Girls Just Want to Have Fun!

Let's ease ourselves into the weekend ladies, shall we?
Let's get lost in the bright summer day as it folds into a glistening moonlit sky. Because the evening is young, the air is sultry, and the possibilities are endless, let's pull out that sparkly little number we've been saving for the perfect occasion (now) and slip on those sky-high sling-backs because weekends are for dreamers and dreamers definitely have more fun (sorry blondes). Let's shake off the duty of our most professional selves and toss the to-do list to the wind, because hey, we deserve it!
Of course, anything less than a space as glamorous as we are is completely non-negotiable. Let's remember that there's substance in style, value in beauty, and that neither should be forgotten. Let the softness of the flokati take you to a lofty place, let the rich hues of blueberry blue and raspberry red warm your heart. Let the balance of perfectly poised furniture bring calm to your eyes and soothe your senses. And just for fun, hang a crazy mobile from your living room ceiling because design is fun and so are you.
Like Audrey, I was born with an enormous need for affection and a terrible need to give it, so why don't we cook up a little romance in our lives while we're at it. Hug that huz a little tighter, kiss your boyfriend with wild abandon, lock eyes with the cute boy on the corner, and never settle for anyone less than Mr. Right. Although Mr. Right Now is perfectly acceptable too.

Wishing you a champagne popping, disco beat bumping, good weekend my love!

xo, Crystal

How I love this post, Crystal!

You are such a gifted writer -- and I adore the photos that you've put together, too. That picture of Audrey works so well with the glamorous sofa below... oh, Crystal, is there a specific reason you are so glowing? Even your writing is glowing. (in the very best way) Is there someone special that you met? Oh, I hope so! You deserve someone just as wonderful, and full of life and talent as you are. Enjoy the weekend*

Sending hugs your way,
Sarah

Blue and silver really complement each other. I would like to have this design made in my home. I am staying in one of the finest apartments for rent in Simpsonville, SC site. Surely, this design idea will suit many apartments in Simpsonville, South Carolina. For sure, it will be breathtaking!
