I have a HUGE girl crush on Emily Henderson. Have you guys been watching her on Secrets From A Stylist? I haven’t. BUT, I have been a die hard blog stalker since the times when she had a wee small 10 followers, and have been in total awe of her for quite some time.
Here are a couple of my favorite inspiration boards that she put together, and the resulting rooms.

Race on over to her blog and check out all of her amazing projects.
One of the reasons I am COMPLETELY spoiled by our new home: My shoe shelves:
Shelves contain my favorite shoes of the moment, as well as some books and objects. I lined the back of the shelves with leftover wallpaper from our living room. I love the metallic geometric print.
Wallpaper: Graham and Brown “Darcy”
My Jeffrey Campbell leopard platforms serve as bookends.
My “special shoes” hold court just at eye level.
A stack of magazines sits at the ready to provide style inspiration.
A tray holds some of my favorite jewelry pieces, as well as a few sentimental items – My grandmothers red earrings, the boutonniere my husband wore at our wedding, the giant butterfly ring I wore for our wedding reception, and a brooch my mama gave me.
My fashion fairy godmother (Ashley of Love Letters – check out their site, it’s amazing) delivered me this cosy, warm, gorgeous Surface to Air sweater from Villains SF on Tuesday, and I’ve been living in it ever since.
Yup. Not kidding. Henna N’ Placenta. I’ve been taking note of various hair and beauty products lately that I read about, and taking pictures of them in my phone so I can remember. Whenever I go into a store like Sephora, or a beauty supply store I get too overwhelmed by all the choices, so the pictures help me remember and know what I wanted and what to look for. Anyhoo, this creepy placenta stuff was one of the things that I read about.
It’s like two bucks a pack, and you are supposed to put it on once a month. So I tried it this morning but didn’t really notice much a difference, but maybe my hair just doesn’t know a good placenta when it gets one. Or maybe I’m just weirded out by putting placenta on my head. When I was a teenager, one of my best friends would talk about how her mom had home births with her younger brother and sister, and she remembers going in the kitchen later and seeing a placenta floating in a bowl of water, and then her mom buried it later in the backyard under a tree. That story freaked me out so bad.
The next hair products on my list to buy and try for my wavizzy hair are a trio of Bumble and Bumble products-
The first two products, the Grooming Cream and Surf Spray, I guess are great to put on your hair when you shower at night and then let your hair air dry as you sleep. The last one is brand spanking new and supposedly awesome. You put that one on in the morning when you wake up and your hair is dry. I now have not at all lofty expectations for these products to wonderfully and simply take my hair from this
