What I’m Luvin’ Now … Take A Seat Children

Hey Luv-lies,

It’s ‘HUMP DAY’ !!!

hump day

I’ve been surfing the ‘net looking for a few ideas for an family room project that I’m working on,

when I took an unplanned turn and landed on a few sites that featured some pretty enviable  furniture.

*I love it when my surfing takes me to a place that I had no intentions of visiting. 

I love it even more when that place keeps me smiling … for hours*

I must have a hidden obsession for chairs because they seem to be on my list of

‘What I’m Luvin’ Now’ quite often.

This time my chair obsession is all about a whimsical place for children to nestle.  Check it out …

With three brothers, my Grand Daughter is no stranger to rough and tumble play.

But I know that her dainty side would love this plush Princess chair.

Tuesday {Shoes}Day! … Steve Madden

Good Morning Luv-lies

Another very, very cold night!  Stocked up yesterday on all of the essential creature comforts for another day of  ‘being snowed in’.

Not going to spend too much time complaining about the meal that nature has served us.

That’s it.  I’m over it.

The weather, that is.

I  decided to spend the day nested comfortably in my favorite loveseat, surrounded by as many creatures comforts as could reasonably fit,

watching movies on the cable channel and rifling through magazines.

My movie pick, ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’.   Couldn’t pass up a movie with the following description -

  “Sex. Money. Power. Drugs.

leowolfstory

Brace yourself for an outrageous true story from legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese that critics are calling “a masterpiece for a new generation.”

* Leonardo DiCaprio delivers “the best performance of his career”** as a young stockbroker hungry for a life of non-stop thrills,

where corruption was king and more was never enough. His rise to power earned him the title The Wolf of Wall Street.

Together, Scorsese and DiCaprio deliver a story of American excess that is “an absolute blast from start to finish.” 

~~~~~

Haven’t Seen it yet?

You’ll be hooked after this two minute trailer…. guaranteed.

It’s Leonardo!

Right!?

Love the trailer?

No way could I pass up this much fun and frolicking!

  I’m snowed in, after all!!!

Loved the movie! –  It didn’t disappoint.

It’s Leonardo! Right!?

Not only that, quite unexpectedly, the movie gave me the idea for today’s Tuesday {Shoes}Day Theme.  You see, according to the premise of the movie, the relationship between  Jordan Belfort and Steve Madden, landed both of these men – eventually – in the slammer!  It took a minute or two to believe that the Steve Madden that was referenced in the movie is Steve Madden – THE shoe mogul!
…. sometimes I’m slow like that …

Without further ado, here are a few pictures of my Steve Madden Favs!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ASHLEY

Yeaaaaahhh!!!!!

*Throwing Confetti in The Air.  And doing my Happy Dance!!!*

So.  In addition to celebrating, I spent the later part of my weekend relaxing and surfing the ‘net.

One thing I love about surfing is finding something uniquely crazy.

This gadget fits the bill.  Nicely.

Perfect for today’s {Man Day} Monday feature

If you look closely,  you’ll notice that these two are actually walking!  That’s right! You do not see them pedaling!

This clever little ditty is the mastermind of Holland native- Bruin Bergmeester.

You see, it seems that he spends a good deal of his day sitting.  And when he’s not, he’s home on the treadmill.  As the story goes,

“One day it was lovely outside and Bruin did not fancy spending time on a bicycle, which meant sitting again, so he thought to himself: “Why not bring the treadmill outdoors?”

And this is what he came up with… he calls if the Lopifit.

He describes it as ‘not an electric bike, it’s not a scooter, it’s not a treadmill’

So what is it!  Why it’s all three.  Of Course.

Okay.  Now you know you want to be the first one of your friends have one.  Admit it.

This is too clever for me.  Sign me up.  I want one!

The only question is  ‘Where can I order one of these?’.

Spoiler Alert!

… it’s only a prototype … *bummer*   *big bummer*

I’ll keep my eye on this one.  When it comes to market, you’ll be the first ones to know!

What unique craziness is going on in your life?
