For as long as I can remember I have always leaned towards the more girly aspects of life. I have loved shopping, decorating, party planning and believe that everyone should have a little touch of animal print in their wardrobe and/or home decor. Due to my natural inclinations towards being the perfect 1950’s housewife and as the oldest daughter in my family I have always been the go-to person for everything creative. Baking pies, buying the perfect gift, picking the perfect paint color has made me a resident Martha Stewart. It is a role that I have loved to play and wish that I could do for real life. I am one of those crazy people that want to love what they do for a living. I don’t want to damn the man and work for the weekends. My dream profession was always interior designer. When I open my monthly magazines especially Domino’s my heart twinges when I see the latest interior designer. I swoon over fabric swatches, tiles and Lucite furniture (Sadly I don’t own any. Ah why oh why does marriage have to be a partnership)
So now you are probably wondering what I do for a living…drum role please…………………
I work for a wine distributor. Exciting I know. I work with our suppliers and get to run lots of reports etc and well pretty much a monkey could do my job. A happy girl I am not. Only plus side is that I get my wines at cost.
Last year I was introduced to the world of blogging. It was love at first sight and I became an obsessed woman. I loved reading about women who were as designed obsessed as me. The only main difference was that they actually went out and did something about it. They were business owners and successful ones at that. I bow down to all of you ladies in the blog world. You make my days so happy. I love coming home and catching up on your posts and dreaming that hopefully someday it can be my reality too.
After a year of reading and moaning about how my career was pretty much non-exsistent. I have a job yes, but I career no. I have finally decided to do something about it. Exactly what that is, is something I have yet to figure out. I need help and I’m hoping that I can make some friends in the blog world and that they can help me see the light. I would love to get into interior design or decorating and work for myself, but I am at a loss over how to make this happen.
This blog will be my ramblings of all the things I love and drool over in fashion and home design along with my many stumbles as I trying getting my high-heeled foot in the design door.
P.S. I thought the name of my blog was perfect. My only problem is that I may love how high heels look, but I spend most of my days in ballerina flats!
