April 10th, 2013: What You Need to Know in 60 Seconds. Pantry, Pets and Home Decor
It appears that April 10th is the 100th day of the year. Who knew?
I have to admit that today I suffer from fashion fatigue. I know it’s my fault, as I have been spending way too many hours researching sales, looking at department store trends, blogs, etc. I need a break. With that said, I think it will be refreshing for everybody — myself included — if I switch my recommendations for the day from fashion to home items.
Because we recently purchased a house, I am constantly on the hunt for new things. As it just so happens, today there are three sales that I am really looking forward to.
I have to tell you that the best thing about having a house is the pantry. I still remember the joy and confusion I experienced after realizing the pantry was bigger than my whole NYC kitchen. As I love buying great olive oils — there is nothing better than fresh bread, olive oil and a good glass of wine — this is the sale for me.
This sale is a must because there is no limit to the love I have for my dog. Some people might call it obsession. I call it love.
I’m shopping this sale because it’s the color combination I chose for my country home living room and I still need wall art and some pillows to finish up the look. The duo is also a strong trend for 2013. If you don’t have a new house to furnish, but you want to refresh the old one, you can always store your current pillows and curtains and swap in new ones. I personally like to move around my furniture from time to time. I think it’s a good opportunity to clean the areas that may otherwise be hard to reach. It also makes you feel like you have a new space.
Now, put on your Martha Stewart decorating hats and go shopping for your home. What are you waiting for?
