i am a bougie girl: Going For More...

Yesterday, I woke up and felt utterly fabulous.  Joy surged throughout me and I am sure that it has to do with the new direction which I am headed towards. This new direction contains an unknown path. Yet, I am not scared to step upon it. In fact, this impending path feels very familiar.

Divatosity: Moving Into The Third Phase Of The Backyard Patio

I have had this patio furniture for over 2 years. It was sitting in my basement because I was afraid that it would be ruined by the rain. Looking back, my reluctance to bring these items outside seems silly.

Divatosity: Moving Into The Second Phase...Flower Pots

Yesterday, I eagerly strolled through the Nursery section of Home Depot scouring the aisles for plants that benefit from basking out in the sun. Fortunately, I managed to find a few such plants along with a couple of colorful flower pots. 
Originally, I had planned to just arrange the flower pots and declare my backyard patio to be complete. However, the wannabe designer living inside of me is itching to add more depth to the space. Bring on the outdoor lights, refurbished patio furniture, and Shepherd's hook.
