It's been awhile since I've shared a hodgepodge post... Here are some recent thoughts, happenings, and whatevs.

I've been spending time painting... and absolutely loving it. Here's a peek at a few. I'm actually not sure that I'm finished with these yet. We'll see.

The awesome peeps at Clarisonic were sweet enough to send me a new Clarisonic Mia so that I can get my clean face on. I've been DYING to try this miracle product for so long, just never really got around to getting one. I've only used it 4 days now so I can't give you a full on review just yet, but I can say that I already LOVE it. Where has it been all my life?? Do you guys use a Clarisonic?

My hair grows soooo slowly and I love having some length to it, but this picture kinda makes me want to chop it off. (I'm not going to, yet anyway.)


And speaking of hair, a few weeks ago I bought one of those clamp free curling rods. Again, where has it been all my life? So easy, loose waves, and no clip marks on my hair. I just got a $30 one and think it works great!
I have to share my sweet girl in her Marysia Swim Bumby Swimsuit at the beach last weekend. How cute!

Anyone know where this picture is from. Okay, more importantly, where can I buy this wallpaper?? Love this room.

After seeing Alex's new china, I'm dying to sell mine and buy up a mix of Kelly Wearstler's by Pickard.
I am SO proud of my girl Melissa over at Veranda Interiors. She and her husband just won a Sam Award for a home project they built last year. She's so darn talented and I just know she'll sweep the awards next year when she can enter some of her more recent projects like this one... Congrats Melissa! You are the bomb and I SOOOO appreciate your input you've shared with me on my current home renovation :)

And to end on an extra pretty "gimmie gimmie" note, I want this Phillip Lim dress SO BAD.

That's all. Feels good to get all that out :)

Chassity, I love the paintings, the color combo is stunning, frame them!
Ohh so good to know about the Clarisonic: I've been very intrigued by it for some time now, we have to chat about it!
I swear that China is the most stunning China I've seen! How lucky is that Alex!

Adore the paintings! Adore. You are finished. Also gotta chime in on the Clairsonic. Best invention. Ever. Over sliced bread.

I've wanted a Clarisonic for forever, so glad you love it and can't wait to hear the final review!

LOVE that wallpaper

Julia {Pawleys Island Posh} said...

Well I just love each of your randoms today! You are blowing me away with that art my friend! Fantastic job! Isn't it such a great creative outlet? Your friend's kitchen is amazing, I can't wait to go check out the rest of her space. I'm sure I'll love just as much! I'm not gonna lie, I'm a bit jeal of your new face toy. I've been wanting one forever. Don't forget to update us on how you like it longterm! Okay, and that last dress. Let's just say Yes. And then go get drinks. That dress deserves a night out!

I love the paintings---let me know if you are interested in selling the top right painting...LOVE it. And I have been weary of buying a clamp free curling rod--you may have just given me the nudge I needed....Lastly, your little girl is too too cute.

Alex {Things That Sparkle} said...

Look at you painting! Those are gorgeous. So talented! And yes Clarisonic is life changing isn't it? Love it! And so glad you love my china, I am completely obsessed too!!!

Jessie said...

Lots of good things in this post. LOVE your paintings. The MIA is the bomb.com. I do not think Lilly could get any more precious!Love Alex's china AND that kitchen is pretty much identical to our new one- obviously I love it. That is all.

Megan - Style Me Swanky said...

I recently bought a clipless curling rod & I'm obsessed! I'm really not sure why it took me so long to buy one.

Lilly gets more adorable every day!

Gray Benko said...

I am seriously impressed with your paintings lady! You have some serious artistic talent!
PS- I am IN LOVE with this picture of Lilly!!

Shan said...

Your paintings are abstract which I love! If you are planning on selling some of your paintings you will have a buyer right here.

That kitchen is what my dream one would look like...simple, black, white, and homey feeling.

Great post!


Morgan said...

Yep, pretty much love it all! Never heard of a curling iron like that but I want to try!

Melissa @ Veranda Interiors said...

You are so sweet, thank you so much dear!! And yes, next year when I enter our home, all of the Altadore projects, Hillhurst, and a few to come...well, I plan on having a wheel barrel so I can bring all of those shiny heavy awards home. ;) You know I love being a sounding board for you, so any time you need me, drop me a line. xx

And I love that wallpaper - it's TDF!!

Now I know where Lilly gets all her cuteness and painting talent (c; Loooooove that hair!!! Maybe it's because I've been going back and forth on choppin' the 'do myself!

The Now said...

So much to discuss!! A. Great job on your paintings! B. Your daughter looks SO freaking cute on the beach in that bikini and C. I love bobs..I had super short hair in H.S. but I've had it long for years and I am afraid to cut it short again! xoxo Elizabeth

blue chickadee said...

Loving your colors in your paintings! Fun to get the paper and paintbrush out isn't it!! And I have the Mia Clarisonic and love it so much!!! I think you will too! Cute little Bumby suit too!

Adoring these paintings! Girl you are super talented! Also loving that china. I'm always on the look out for something that has some gold in it. I may have just found it! x

Amanda Hill said...

Natalie {Designer Bags and Dirty Diapers} said...

Love this hodge podge post. Your artwork works my world, that haircut would look freaking amaze balls on you, lily is the cutest and I die for that wallpaper!

designchic said...

Love, love your art...so fun and your daughter...beyond adorable!!

Courtney {a thoughtful place} said...

Love this post. Your daughter could not be cuter. So funny. That dress is one that I am looking at for our Vegas trip next month. I love it. And your hair short. . . smokin' hot. Just sayin.

Nest Studio said...

Hey Chassity. So I say go for it on the hair chop. I just MAJORLY chopped mine. I mean like boy / pixie short and I love it. Check out a pic over on my blog. And I'm pretty sure I pinned a wallpaper like that or maybe that exact one. If you go to my "Patterns" pin board it should be in there.

Elizabeth @ HobbyLobbyist said...

I love your random posts. I adore my Clarisonic. I just wish I could trick my boyfriend into trying it.

I'm having a similar hair debate. I'm at an in-between length and I can either chop it or grow it out. I think I'm going to grow it out, so please chop yours so I can live vicariously.
