Celebrity Closets -- What is your closet like?

Kim Catrell's Closet. This is my favorite closet, as it is more typical of most homes. Even if you had a small walk-in closet, you could achieve this simple look. So why am I looking at closets? Well every fashion lover has to have someplace to put her stuff. Also, my parents were recently repainting their bedroom closet a super bright white, kind of like the one below, and it inspired me to look at my own bulging and dirty closets. Now, if that closet only had a small chandelier it would really be rocking. So this week, I may look at painting my own closets and reorganizing. I did say may!!! I have so many projects I am mind boggled right now. Will definitely let you know.

Olivia Palmerno's Closet. She is off "The City". Cute young fun closet.

Rachel Zoe's Closet. Although, she has moved since this picture was taken. Love the bags everywhere.

Eva Longoria's Closet. Love the little dog.

Nikki Hilton's Closet. Looks more like a total bedroom devoted to a closet. Love it.

Turquoise Jewelry - New Moon Bracelet

Turquoise the color of the year. When Eva Mendes rocked that great Turquoise necklace on the red carpet, you knew Turquoise would be big. It is not only big in jewelry but big in interiors. A pop of Turquoise really brightens up a bland house. They say it makes a women look younger and her face less tired if worn as a necklace. Hmmm. Who knows. But, below we have Bella from the Twilight movie New Moon, wearing a great Turquoise and Silver, Native American Style Bracelet.

Below an imitation Turquoise necklace from Kohls, at less than $20.00. Get your Turquoise on!!

Pandora Bracelets - Alternate Universe - Hallmark

I love Pandora Bracelets. Like the model below, I enjoy wearing multiple bracelets. Pandora can be a bit pricey though. So if you are looking for some charms for your bracelet, try Ebay, and Etsy. Also, for an Alternate Universe, try your local Hallmark. Yes, I said Hallmark. I ran in for a card the other day and believe it or not they were carrying the European Bead Charms, as well as the Bracelets. Check it out.

Washing Day!! Washing Clothes!!

What are you doing this Sunday? Well, I am washing. Lots and lots of washing. Almost all of today's clothing requires the good old fashioned drip dry. I use an indoor clothing drying rack. Although my new fancy front load dryer should have a rack where you can just sit clothing to dry, I haven't purchased it yet. Luckily here in the southwest we can also air dry outside. That brings me to clothes lines. Do you have one? Or do you miss one? Maybe you have one inside your garage or laundry room for air drying clothes. Either way it is wash day for me.

I wish I was having as much fun as the people in these pictures were.
