This gal has been dreaming for her whole life, now its time for this gal to set the score for herself.

  Today couldn’t have been more awesome!! I am so excited!! I have a few interviews coming up, and I am going to the outlet mall in the morning to update my closet. {Oh boy!! I smell trouble already!}

  For one, I need to get some dress shoes, I am thinking penny loafers… ? {Old school I know, but I don’t do the whole ‘roach killer’ thing. No. Thank. You. However, I don’t recall owning a pair of penny loafers since, well… Since I was about 10? Yeah, keep on laughing.}

  Two, I need to get a few button up tops, to update my current selection… most are sweaters. {We both know 20 degree wool sweaters don’t cut it in 90 degree Georgia weather!}

  Thirdly, I have been looking my large collection of handbags for 6 months, literally!! I love my bags!! A large majority of my handbags and shoes are Nine West. I used to work for Nine West, so I got killer deals on all of their stuff. {Awesome, right??}

  But, you want go to an Interview looking great, without a killer handbag, right???

  I know what you are thinking, ‘The handbag won’t get you the job, missy!’ Yes, I know that, but I don’t exactly want to look like a complete mess, walking up in their office dressed to the nines, and toting in a mess. Let me clarify,… the main interview I am most concerned about, requires a presentation of my online portfolio, and my other skills; with this thought in mind, I am taking my laptop so If they ask about my portfolio, {and – believe me – they will} I can just open the lid, spin it around and show them till their heart is content. 

  Four, I have 2 pairs of dress pants, already, … thank goodness. 🙂 {No need to stress here, my Husband will thank me later!} 

Unfortunately, most of my stuff is packed up from our last move. {So very convient… Right?}

  In other news, …
The hubbs and I are getting a pool!!! I am supposed to go get the money out of the account tomorrow, and it should be delivered, and set up in the next few days!!! Finally!!! This gal can get her tan on!!

  Maybe, just maybe – By my birthday I may have the job of my dreams, while pushing my own businesses to the sky and beyond; and have a killer tan that makes me look so much more like the Italian gal that I am. {Hey! I can dream, can’t I?}

DIY Cube Lounger {BORROWED POST}

{BORROWED POST} from Pintrest;  link is here: I am not sure how much each of them cost as they are not available . In any case it seemed simple enough to make, and it was very simple. It was so simple that i forgot to take pictures as i went along only to realize it when i actually lounged on the cube that i had no pictures. Sorry about the really bad sketches.

For making a square bean bag you will need to decide the measurements for the bean bag. I decided on 24 inches X 24 Inches X 12 inches height

These are the materials I used .

The fabric used was thick upholstery material. It is no where as cute as the inspiration pieces but will do.

I started with two pieces of 24 inches X 24 inches and four pieces of 24 inches X 12 inches.

Take one 24 X 24 piece and place it correct side down on your work space. Now place around the sides the 24 X 12 pieces such that the 24 inch sides line up. Using tacking pins tack the pieces together and stitch them. The resultant will be like a plus sign.

Turn the fabric around such that the correct sides face up.

Now stitch the adjoining 12 inch sides. Once all four sides are done you will get a Bucket like structure. The wrong side will be visible out.

Stitch the remaining 24 X 24 inch piece on three sides of the bucket making sure that the wrong side is out. With the gap on the fourth side, turn the structure inside out and stitch the Zipper.

The structure is ready.

The structure can be filled with the Styrofoam beans. However recently, I have used scraps of fabric and used bubble wrap to fill the cube.

Lounge on!
