My name is Gloria. I scour the high seas of the internet daily to find the cutest, the beautiful, and the most bodacious.

Some people may say obsessively scrolling through Pinterest each day is a complete waste of time, and these people are what we call Debbie Downers. Where else can you find decor ideas, dinner recipes, and a new ways to braid your hair all in one place? It’s a learning mecca, I tell ya! And to prove my point, here are some great usable-in-real-life household tips I’ve recently picked up from the pinning paradise:
- Instead of trying to hide every electrical cord in the house, funkify them with some colored tape. You’ll actually be happy to see them peeking out from around the room!
- Key caps begone! Color code your keys using nail polish (duh)
- Freeze fresh herbs in olive oil, and pop them out as needed. I won’t let herbs sit around in my fridge until they turn brown ever again. Promise.
- Use binder clips to organize chargers and cables. This action is going on on my desk right now, and I haven’t had to crawl around on my hands and knees, groping blindly at wires since. Success!
So the good news is that I’ve managed to build up a little stockpile of beautiful washi tape over the past few years. The bad news is that they mostly just sit around looking pretty in a big mason jar on the shelf. What a waste! However I predict that they’ll see a bit more action soon, after the discovery of these creative washi tape DIYs!
Don’t toss the corks from your wild weekend of wine and bubbly! With a package of Corkers, you can have a glass (or three) of deliciousness and a funny little critter to call your very own. Each one comes with teeny body parts and accessories that you can adorn your corks with Mr. Potato Head-style. They’re so cute that that you’d surely have a full blown zoo on your hands in no time!
…if you want to get any work done today. I warned you! The chubby one that seems to have toppled out of the bed just kills me. Damn you, Pinterest!
Bad news, folks. Unfortunately we only won $2 from our Mega Millions lottery ticket this weekend, instead of the $640 million I had anticipated. Slight difference. Ahh c’est la vie!
If we had hit the jackpot, I’d be on a private jet to France right now to check out this mind-boggling room at the Au Vieux Panier hotel in Marseille. The split between pristine white and absolute chaos is jarring to say the least, and I particularly love how the dividing line runs right through the mirror and bureau without stopping. This two-faced room was created by renowned graffiti artist, Tilt, and has been dubbed the “Panic Room”.
Hubs took one look at these photos and declared that it was a headache waiting to happen. I, on the other hand, think it’s kind of like having a piece of NYC in France :-) Would you check in here for a good night’s rest?
If Toby finds himself a lady friend by next Tuesday, he can woo her with a pair of Jimmy Chews and something sparkly from Sniffany & Co. Tee hee.
