Target Decor: Farrah Fretwork Window Panel

So in the search to slightly re-do the living room, curtains are always the hardest for me, only second to pillows! After trying the do-it-yourself approach along with the expensive, I was finding that the colors were not true. Like the navy was faded, the cream was more tan, it was a nightmare!!

These I had seen in Target and checked for every time I was shopping but they were always sold out. I really didn't want to order online for fear of what I had already seen with the colors.
But then on a whim, I went in and THEY HAD THEM!!! I quickly scooped up two 54x95 Target Home™ Farrah Fretwork Window Panels and wow!!! I was so pleasantly surprised!! Perfect color, true to even the color I had seen online. They are still up in my house and I am loving them!! The pattern adds a ton to the design without overwhelming it! The fabric is 55% Cotton and 45% Polyester, so it is strong and easy to care for.

They also have them in orange, black and tan which are also gorgeous!!

 I like them so much, I am thinking about getting 2 for back up or in case we move to a house with an additional window!! What can I say, when you find a good thing, stock up!! Enjoy :)

LIMELIGHT: Trip Advisor

So I always get the question "What is there to do in NYC?" Having lived there for quite a few years for my career, I always reply what the locals do and what the tourist do are polar opposites. Yes did we take in the occasional Broadway play or the park for ice skating? Yes, but when you live in a place, you not rushing around to catch all the highlights. Make sense??

I can help you navigate the subway, tell you some items that are fun, activities that are worth the cost of them but I tried to branch out and see if I could start guiding people to a better resource for planning thier fun................ta da TRIPADVISOR.COM!!! I was surprised that there were tons of items to do, some including the local attractions, that would be perfect for a tourist! It not only breaks it down by interest, but by most popular and cost so you can plan a budget before you go!!

The best part of the site was the THINGS TO DO area! It had over 600 items to do and broke them down by food, activities, shopping nd nightlife! So if you planning on a trip to the wonderful island of Manhattan be sure to check it out!
