Hello! I'm Cassie from Hi Sugarplum! and I'm thrilled to be participating in this series for Aubrey. I'll admit, I was a bit intimidated when she asked me to share how I make my home 'mine.' I'm fairly new to the Blog World, and sometimes feel like an impostor amongst all the talented design bloggers. I'm not a professional designer, nor do I have any formal training...but I know what I like!
And while I love to drool over gorgeous room photos like these:
They are neither practical for an active family with two young kids (the Sugarplums), nor within a typical budget! So I simply use photos of gorgeous rooms as inspiration, but strive to make our home comfortable, livable and still stylish, without going into debt doing it!
(Aubrey explaining...do you like how I can't format correctly? Sorry, you will just have to go to her blog and drool over her amazing pictures...(c: )
The kids each have areas in their room for art, but we also rotate favorite pieces in these large inexpensive frames that permanently sit on a shelf in the breakfast room.
The best advice I can offer is to remember it is your house...for just you and your family. So fill it with things you love, surround yourself with comfort, and make it a place you can't wait to return.
Thanks so much for having me, Aubrey!

I'm so excited...Jaime and High Gloss in *one* fabulous place...heaven really does exist. (c:

For the cuteness...
Via and it was my fav pick from Hi Sugarplum!'s lineup
For the foreverness...

And for whatever other -ness made up word I can think of...
Any fun plans for Valentine's?
Keep it "G-rated", alright?

Are you head-over-heels in love with this bed like I was???
I was browsing through the products on High Gloss Magazine (a teaser, I should say, it doesn't launch until Feb 1st) and they had this fab pillow and I wanted to know where it was from...
Ladies and Gentleman, boys and girls...if you have not browsed the web site Room Service you haven't really lived. Okay fine, maybe not that earth shattering, but close. (c: Check this out:
Pillows Galore!!! And awesome ones, I might add...
Super unique pieces...(I must have a violent streak, because I think that MK lamp is rad)
Lots and lots of color, so you know I'm totally hooked...
And this my friends is their soon to come wallpaper. Insanity.
I'm a fan.
How about you??? (c:
