The Floor Fiasco 2022 : How To Make The Impossible Choice for Permanent Home Fixtures

Y’all, I’ve  been putting this post off with everything in me because even THINKING about the absolute headache this process has been is enough to send me into a spiral. Before buying our house, I never really gave that much thought to floors. Either they were ugly or fine, and once in a blue moon – exceptional. 

So when I made a flooring choice at the beginning of #MaisonMakeover, it took me about a week. I was satisfied with it and moved on to the millions of other decisions I had left, but that’s only where this story begins..

Let’s get into it, shall we?

The #MaisonMakeover Mood Board Series : Bar Jon


It’s finally time to put the ideas for this space on paper! 

I am SO thrilled to be sharing the vision of Bar Jon with you – and tell you the story of how it came to be. I wanted at least one space to showcase mid-century formality in a way that was still fun and approachable, and what better place than a cocktail lounge?

Here’s your first look at the interiors for Maison Mon Coeur, plus a sappy love story for the ages:

Love & Routine In The Age of COVID-19

ACS_0358

Listen, y’all – we’re in a shithole dumpster fire era that we’ll look back on as our ‘Great Depression”. It’s insanity – I refuse to try and wrap my head around it, and am staying the hell home at all costs unless the end-of-times supply of wine I bought runs out (priorities). This being said, we’ve gotta try and find some joy and normalcy amongst the madness.

Here’s my best tips to do so, chilled glass of Rosé firmly in hand:

I Went to SpiceWorld and I Never Wanted to Leave

ACS_0283.JPG

Seeing as I’m only now waking up from a pretty long internet hiatus, I haven’t had the chance to share with most of you something pretty earth shattering that happened this summer :

I saw the Spice Girls. In London. Up close and PERSONAL.

Ever since I saw the movie when I was six – faux double decker bus of dreams flying across Tower Bridge, it’s been a dream of mine to see my personal heroes in the big smoke. Truly, I thought it would never happen. And then they got social media. And then there was talk of a tour.. perhaps. And then all hell broke loose once they released the dates and I booked flights and accommodation the second I secured tickets.

21 years later, it happened! And it was EVERY bit as magical, girl power filled, and rhinestone adorned as I could have ever dreamed it would be.

STOP BUYING UGLY DOG TOYS : An Aesthetic Guide to Puppy Play Time

ACS_0274.jpg

Okay y’all : a news update. Jon and I adopted this sweet, unbelievably gorgeous little monster at the end of May. His name is Martini (@martinithedragdog, rather) – and he’s fucking teething like crazy and has caused us to bleed on multiple occasions.

Cue: dog toys.

If you’re the kind of person who doesn’t mind ripped up, slobbered over, dirty tennis balls all over the place – this post (and blog, probably) isn’t for you. Move on. But if you get it – first of all, I love you. Secondly, Buckle. UP!

Is that a long way of saying “sorry the last post was about cancer, here’s a handbag review”? Kind of. But as an OG fan of Rebecca Minkoff, I couldn’t be more thrilled to share the new addition to my collection with you – meet Edie.

To Jesus, Thanks for Everything! : How Jinkx Monsoon & BenDeLaCreme made a drag holiday show that broke the mold with a glitter bomb

acs_0162

The most wonderful time of the year might be just behind us, but I have to say – Atlanta truly blessed me with a cornucopia of quality themed drag events to attend this season. A few weeks ago we managed to make it out to three different drag shows around town – and while all fabulous – I HAD to take a moment to gush about Jinkx Monsoon & BenDeLaCreme’s first collaboration, “To Jesus, Thanks for Everything!”, because WOW. I just mean.. WOW. Wow! YAS. You get the idea, people.
