Happy Anniversary!

August 29...The one year anniversary of City Southern!

I was hoping to have the makeover completed in time for the one-year mark and do a big reveal. I guess that it's asking too much for it to be completed in 11 months. But...I still wanted to say THANK YOU to all of my followers and readers. You guys are what makes the effort worthwhile. I promise MORE for the second year, so stay tuned for a new and improved City Southern!!

Shake Things Up!

Literally!... for those of you who are not local to Virginia or the DC Area, we just had an earthquake. It was a 5.9 at the epicenter and I'm not sure what that translates to where I am, but the building shook {I sit on the 10th floor}, stuff fell off the walls and bookshelves, and we all freaked out a little bit. They evacuated the building for quite a while and most everyone took that opportunity to head home. I've experienced one earthquake in my life before today, at Auburn freshman year and it wasn't as bad as this. They say to expect some aftershocks within the next hour or so.

So...thought I'd *shake* things up a bit and do Wordy Wednesday on TUESDAY. Crazy. But it the cheesiest way possible.

Double the Love

I went straight from a crib to a full size mattress so my first twin bed was a twin XL in my college dorm room. Maybe that explains my fascination with them! There's something about a room with two twin beds that always grabs my attention. Here are some of my favorites!

I promise I will have a room in my house decorated with twin beds someday. Maybe I'll do a bunk room or "kid cave" with a whole bunch of them for our kids to have friends over.

House of Fifty + Lauren Liess

I took some time to skim through the latest issue of House of Fifty. If you haven't heard of it before, you should get to know it. The online design magazine is brain-child of designer Janell Bealls. You may know her from her blog, Isabella & Max Rooms. The mag just released issue #2 and I'm no expert but I think it's great stuff. As I flipped through I saw an article on Lauren Liess. Lauren is a designer that I love and admire and she happens to be local! I follow her blog, Pure Style Home and have been dying to get my hands on some of her fabrics! She has recently started her own line of textiles and furniture, and the article in House of Fifty is all about that.
