keeping it together

I have had some very sweet emails asking me "how do you keep it all together" which makes me laugh uncontrollably. 

Keep it together?    Who.....Me?.??  Have you seen the bags under my eyes, or the state on my fingernails...?  I can't even get a full hour in the day to squeeze in some hair color which I desperately need..BTW

So the answer to this question my dear lovers who are thoughtfully,  I don't keep it together at all!!!! I regularly have mental and over the top emotional break downs involving curse words and throwing heavy objects at my husbands head, or sometimes I am found running down my streets at midnight wearing nothing but running shoes and a helmet made of tin foil singing to myself in tongues. Shit gets so stressful around my house/business some days, I think to myself....."you think anyone would notice if I just built a tee pee outside in the yard and slept in it all week, with a sign on the door reading 

"DEAD FOR THE NEXT 3-5 business days
Please Come Back Later when I am back alive"

OK, I digress. 
Yes I have a lot on my plate and yes I somehow manage to do about %85 of it really, really well. 

There is always a method to my madness.Organized chaos for me is key....let me let you in on some of my crazy...

My once pretty desk has now become a mess...

an organized mess however that has somehow managed to migrate into my dining room and take over the dining table as well.

poor dining table..

Then there is my actual Laptop Desktop disaster. Which is by far the most dis ourganized organization I have ever seen.

I even felt the need to photograph my outfit to make sure my crazy eyes didn't miss if I was covered in dog shit, or G had drawn on my face with markers before my meeting with a client..

Whilst we are on the subject, I know how so many bloggers post themselves wearing outfits.....I myself am on the fence to do or not to do.? Would you guys think I was soooo annoying if I started doing outfit to room post using my own outfits? Would you care???

Have a great day...go get a mani+pedi and think of me loosing my mid.



  1. I feel your pain. I am so busy, I barely even have time to think. It can be very stressful! It is funny how some people make it seem so easy. I wish I could clone myself, lol. By the way, my computer screen looks just like yours...


  2. You keep it together by being uncontrollably crazy mad! And completely honest and you have tons of self ironi, witch makes it so fun to follow all your blabering.

    And I would love to see your outfits too!

  3. oh gosh - that computer screen, your poor baby girl is all covered up! Ok, about the outfit posting I say DO IT. I just got a swanky swanky camera and have been so on the fence about doing outfit posts... I don't want to seem like a fashion blogger wannabe or act like "I'm all hot and sassy over here" ya know? But as a reader and a blogger I think you would be great at it!

  4. Scrolling through your post...I was like...mess, what mess? All of that is too pretty to be a mess. Then I saw your desktop and laughed out loud. That is the craziest desk top I have ever seen. I love it.

  5. But look at all your yummy fabrics!!!!!! Show us all that you're working on!

    I love pics of you, I'd love to see your style! I post my outfits from rooms and feel like a complete narcissist the whole time, but readers love it. I think

  6. Do it! I love your style and would be interested in seeing your outfit to room posts.

  7. you are darling and i bet writing this post was cathartic. sounds like you are paddling hard underneath but calm as can be above the water :)

  8. Chaos or not, you still manage to get it done, lady. And that "organized mess" of fabric samples? I just see beautiful prints.

    Seems like you are very in demand for a good reason--talent!!

  9. the occasional outfit to room using your own outfits would be cool. Has to be your own outfits though - good idea!

  10. Your laptop chaos made me smile, it actually makes mine not look too bad, and I am the most disorganized person I know. Thanks for the honesty!

  11. Amber, you ABSOLUTELY must post some of your own outfits!!!!


  12. I think this is the best post I have read all day! I am so glad I'm not the only one who feels this way and I definitely think its time for a mani + pedi for both of us!
    P.S I would LOVE to see your outfits!

  13. If your fingers and toes look good--you are totally put together! :) My computer screen looks the same--the new messy desk. I am going to work on it now.

  14. I love outfit posts, so please do!

  15. I think we all want to see your outfits. Do it!

  16. Oh my gawd...I so relate- if you put out your tee pee, I'm so doing the same- I actually think the hotel on the corner for just a couple of days... lots of movies, lots of food, and lots of wine...heaven- and no hubs or kids or work of course. And yes please on the outfits to room- love!

  17. hahaha we can totally relate to the desktop pic!! beautiful fabric combinations by the way.
    M & E

  18. Yes on the outfits to rooms. I'm sure you not only have an amazing eye when it comes to interior decorating but also fashion!!

  19. I would love it if you posted pics of your outfits!

  20. I just asked my husband to take a picture of me 5 mos. pregnant, I think its an f-ing disaster, its probably just fine just like your outfit photos are pretty ok.

  21. I hear you, feel your pain, all that. Since starting the new business, it has consumed my life and my husband and kids are getting really pissed by my absense. The answer is clones or minions I'm telling you! NEED some.
    And I love the new outfit feature, adorable as always.
