Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies...Out of a Box {recipe}

Seriously?!?  These are the easiest, yummiest pumpkin chocolate chip cookies EVER!!!

Don't they look  


Spice cake mix
Chocolate chips

**I use two boxes of spice cake and one large can of pumpkin because whenever I make these puppies they disappear before I can pull them out of the oven**


1~ Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2~ Mix all three ingredients together
3~ Spoon dough onto greased cookie sheet
4~ Bake for 15-18 minutes {depending on stove}.  Cookies will be soft but should have a dark brown coloring at tips.
5~ Let cool and then EAT {now, this is the step that always gets skipped at my house ~ we like em' HOT}

Easy peasy punkin' wunkin' right?

And...now this is super cool...each cookie is only TWO WW Points Plus points!



What I'm about to show you may shock you...
You may think to yourselves...'I can't believe she lives like this..."
Do I need a makeover?

So...in hopes that my PATHETICNESS will get me some attention in this totally 
AWESOME giveaway from Vintage Revivals...

I give you my master bedroom...in all it's glory!!!
{and, yes, that is me with no make-up on, in my pj's...pathetic huh?}

Seriously can't believe I'm showin' y'all this...
I am SO, totally, EXTREMELY
{small disclaimer ~ these photos were taken at 11:01 PM after a full work week} 
Definitely not the sanctuary I've always dreamed of...

I mean, look at my awesome broken curtain rods and the very fancy shmancy curtains...

And what about this super shabby chic MAN CORNER?!?

Stylin' right?
I mean, ya gotta love a big black hunk of metal in your bedroom...I bet Better Homes & Garden is just biting at the bit to feature something like this in their magazine!

Oh...but wait!  There's more!
Hard to believe right?!?

Check it out ~ NO DOORS!!!

With my rubber maid dressers...HA! 
Awe...but that jewelry armoire is perty cool...you could do some great things with piece of Pier 1 furniture...

I am seriously RED with SHAME right now...
Let me redeem myself a little by showing you my somewhat nice TV cabinet...
that mirror is up for some redoing...it's metal and would be a rockin' project!!!

and the dressers that, if I ever get them done, might shnazz up the room a little...

{ya...they've been like this for some time now}

and my recent acquisition...a green vintage door

Not to mention I have this awesome mirror...

a basement full of goodies...

 which includes this mirror from IKEA...

 all of which Mandi will have free reign over...I hope to leave my treasures in her competent hands.

Okay...so...to sum things up...

1} No headboard
2} Ugly paint
3} No closet doors
4} Horrible lighting
5} Mismatched everything
6} Broken and FUGLY window coverings
7} The MAN corner
8} Lots of goodies to reinvent
9} And then there is ME..but that's a whole different makeover!!!
I am desperate...I am begging you...take pity on me...and vote for me {entry deadline is April 30th and then the voting will begin ~ and only for 3 days}.  I'm tired of my bedroom being the catch-all...the, 'oh, we're having guests?  just throw everything in there' room!  
Can I count on you?
My faithful, non-judgmental readers...can I count on your vote?
Pwetty...pwetty pwease!!!

Trend alert: With lace and grace


One of the hottest trends for this spring/summer is lace for sure. We've seen it on the runways for autumn/winter 2011 when it became very popular. I believe it's a great choice for anyone who wants to create a feminine look with a bit of a sensual touch. Romantic by nature, with numerous diversial patterns,can give a girly tone (for example in pink colour) and be combined with different types of fabrics. If all that's not convincing enough i have chosen some ready-to-wear runway photos for s/s '11 to show you. Dreamy creations from various designers! I'd love you to send me your notes and don't forget to follow my dears :)

Fashionably yours

Kirsten goes Bulgari!

Quick post for a new fragrance! The famous hollywood actress Kirsten Dunst is the new face of Bulgari's Jasmine Noir. Here she poses holding the perfume's bottle and wearing absolutely nothing but some of the house's luxurious jewelry. In the second pic she's photographed along with a lion and a giant bottle of Jasmine Noir !!!Doesn't she glam up the campaign's photos??? I think she totally does!

Some like it hot like Marilyn! #2

It's been just a day since my first post about Marilyn Monroe and i couldn't wait for the second part. I prefer her colour photo,s even though the black and whites look more artistic. So here are some of her most beautifull shots from films and personal life. Enjoy my friends!
p.s. : For those who see this for the first time i recommend you to read #1 too!
