Just three posts in...

And, I am already veering off my intended theme here (my obsession with decor, design and fashion). I couldn't resist a Topical Post, the night before Halloween...otherwise known as Mischief Night.

Growing up in the Seventies, my childhood memories have very little in common with my own three young childrens' current lives. However, every once in a while, I glimpse something so familiar from my past. Yesterday, was one of those times.

The Unicef boxes came home from school in the backpacks. These little orange boxes took me right back to my own trick or treating experiences. This prompted me to try to find a photo online of a Unicef box from the 1970's. Despite an exhaustive google search, the best image that I could come up with was from Unicef's own site. It actually looks familiar!

Anyway, its nice to see this Halloween tradition continue with my own children. Needless to say, it also really teaches them so many valuable lessons. Not only does this small gesture raise their global awareness, but it sets a great example of how even young children can get involved and help bring about positive changes in our world.

Last night they scoured the house for spare change. It's obvious that they are so excited to bring their little orange boxes out with them tomorrow evening for some trick or treating fun.

Feeling Kinda Snood(ie)

Just spied this on Burberry "snood"! An adorable scarf for fall, and when the winter weather starts blowin' and snowin'... just pull up the back and voila...its a hood.

Microphone Check: 1,2 1,2

so…what does zhush mean anyway? Its a verb, and defines it as thus:
zhush or joosh

zhush (as in the French je + “oosh”) is a word whose usage dates as far back as 1968 in Britain. Its spelling, much like its origin, is elusive. It has been defined by the American Dialect Society (who placed it on their 2003 Word of the Year List) as a verb to mean “primp or fluff up”.
Personally, I like to apply it to all things style related. Like, “let’s zhush up this tired room with some new throw pillows.”
