I know I have talked about them before- but I can't help it - I just love their music. I just received an email announcing their new album due out in the US November 18th. And they are going on tour again February of 2009. I saw them in NY a few years ago and they were amazing! Their voices are unbelievable and they are not hard to look at either. Here is their website Check them out!

Retreat Report - Part One

(Just a cute little house I took a pic of during a walk)

This weekend at the Make Mine Pink Retreat was awesome. Just a few reasons why:
  • It was held in beautiful Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia
  • I got to see my MMP friends again
  • I met more great women in business
  • I had lots of quiet time which is rare coming from a busy household
  • Received tons of great info on marketing and improving my business
  • Came home with tons of inspiration and motivation!

Wish all of you great women in business could have been there. But if you missed this one, don't worry, we are doing it again next year. I can't wait! Stay tuned for more pics.

Pink Friday "Harvest Home"

Who doesn't love to celebrate the Fall season?
Visit the boutiques at Make Mine Pink for Pink Friday
Click here for our special offerings.
Remember, many of the items are specially priced for today only so don't wait!

Fall Centerpiece

Here is a quick centerpiece idea for your coffee table, dining table or even the kitchen island. I picked up a bag of these mini pumpkins in white and orange while at the supermarket yesterday.

Grabbed a can of bronze spray paint and lightly sprayed the tops of my pumpkins and some fallen leaves in the backyard. (my neighbor caught me spray painting leaves last year and looked at me like I was a little nuts - so keep that in mind!)

Here you go - the finished product. Take a tray, load it up with candles ( I put one on a pedestal for a little height). Add your pumpkins, leaves, some berry stems and I also added some dried hydrangeas tucked in for a little more color.

Hope you're INSPIRED to CREATE your own. If you make one, blog about it. I would love to see your version. Send me a pic or link to your blog and I will mention it here on this post.

Also, tomorrow is Pink Friday and the category is Harvest Home. Look for the reminder tomorrow and a giveaway announcement coming soon!

Pink Friday - Romantic Bedrooms and Baths

As the stress of the day fades away, we head to our bed and baths. We find sanctuaries of peace. Soul soothing delights for the bath and calming romantic colors for the bedroom. Time to renew our souls and refresh our minds. Sweet peace at last. From

Join Make Mine Pink for our next PINK Friday event as we present "Romantic Bed & Baths" on Friday September 5.

See my Bed and Bath items on sale on my Pink Friday page. Remember most products will return to regular prices on Saturday.

Goodbye Summer

I am sad to see the end of summer and thought I would share some pics of this weekend at a beautiful beach in Westhampton. It's a great drive at the end of Dune Rd. We haven't been there in years and I couldn't believe the size and beauty of these beach homes lining both sides of the road all waterfront and went on as far as you can see. I tried to get some pics as we were leaving but it was already getting dark. We were having so much fun with the kids, we didn't want to leave the beach! Enjoy the pics!

My honey and the kids playing frisbee. You can see the homes in the background. It's funny - from this angle it looks like they're all attached. But they are pretty close together.

This is basically the size of most of the homes we saw.

This one looked so pretty all lit up. Next time I'll get some pics in the daylight!

The sunset was beautiful - look at the color of that sky.
