Decor 

West Elm Metal Framed Floor Mirror, Antique Rose

Full length mirrors are a wonderful piece to add to a bedroom, closet, end of a hall or any space in which you are wanting the room to look larger. Having purchased a floor mirror from West Elm in the past, I can attest, the quality is superb, and while a bit of an investment, the classic style will stand the test of time and all of the decor changes in your future.

Film

All Roads Lead to Rome

A rom-com in SJP. Yep, she has a new film, All Roads Lead to Rome and while it didn’t go to the theaters, it is available on Amazon and iTunes. The reviews are all over the place, but if you enjoy Sarah Jessica Parker and want to be taken to Tuscany, this just may be the light-hearted film to unwind to at the end of the weekend.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

One film that will be in the theaters beginning today and is getting more glowing reviews is Tina Fey in Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. Based on print journalist Kim Barker’s experience in Afghanistan and Pakistan, Fey’s character’s name is Kim Baker and while a television journalist, reveals the culture that Barker wrote about in her 2007 book The Taliban ShuffleListen to Kim Barker’s interview with NPR’s Rachel Martin here.

Television

House of Cards, season 4

The long wait is over as the infamous Frank Underwood returns in Netflix‘s drama House of Cards for 14 more episodes today, March 4th. The pressure is on as Claire has left the now President Underwood, and it looks to be a season full of flux. Have a look at the trailer below.

Shopping

Poplin PJs- Audrey silk navy set

Having just discovered Poplin and their wide array of both cotton and silk pajamas, this UK company is worth looking at. My favorite set is the navy silk Audrey, but there are many prints and styles available (shorts, shirts, etc.)

River Island Blue Stripe Bubble Hem Blouse

A simple stripe, wrap-effect top for under $70. Ideal for casual, chic attire. Where over denim or a slim pencil skirt with heels.

Tibi Amara Print silk camisole

Layering is a something I love to do, and this silk signature camisole would be a lovely complement to a black blazer or white in the summer.
