Happy Chinese New Year!


Aaahhh…Friday! Who doesn’t love a short week? I just wish it wasn’t SO cold.

Did you know this weekend is the Chinese new year? I just found out because we’ve been invited to a New Year’s party on Saturday to celebrate the year of the Rat!

I’m supposed to wear something red…and I literally don’t think I own anything red other than a cute pair of flats and a bag. Oh well!

On to this week’s wrap up of interesting links and such…

small gift ideas for Valentine’s Day



January’s almost over which means Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! So, of course we’re talking about some small gift ideas for Valentine’s Day today.

This year Mr. Zhush and I are hoping to escape the cold and travel somewhere warm next month (so that will be our gift to each other) Which reminds me, we still need to book this!

But, I always like to treat my kids to a fun little gift on Valentine’s Day, the same way my parents did when I was little. 

As eye roll inducing as this holiday can be sometimes (less so now that I’m older and no longer single) I have to admit, I do enjoy the sentimental aspect of Valentine’s Day. For us (and I’m sure many others) it’s more of a family tradition at this point.

Just a fun little way to show some love to my kids.

Most likely this will be candy and a card for my son.

For my daughters, both who are getting older…maybe something a little more grown up like perfume, a fancy lip stick or some cute fashion jewelry.

Here’s some gift inspiration – just in case you too have started to think about this sweet, little holiday.

Home Tour: Art Deco Style in Atlanta

How to get the Art Deco Style look



How to get the Art Deco Style look


The Art Deco look is having a moment in the home decor style world.

Truth be told, I never really thought much of the Art Deco movement – especially when it comes to home decor.

However, that all changed when I saw this spread in Atlanta Homes Magazine.

I used to only think of Art Deco only in terms of old Hollywood movies and Manhattan sky scrapers. However, seeing this amazing home remodeled and re-imagined so beautifully by the Scout For The Home design team has me seeing this style in a whole new light.

I especially love how perfectly the pared down decor and all white walls really showcase this home’s glamorous history and architectural details. The perfect example of how less can really be more.

If you love this look as much as I do, be sure to scroll through to the bottom to find several ways of incorporating this elegant home decor style in your own home.
