Taking inspiration from this photo, I’m spending the weekend finishing up all the organizing that’s been going on at my place. One of the areas I’m hitting this weekend is m closet. I have lots of folding, stacking and purging ahead of me. While I’m busy working it all out, here are a few great reads and bits of info you’ll want to check out.
One of my goals this year is to strengthen the presence and message of my blog. If you are a blogger and have the same goal, this article outlining 58 Tips for Transforming Your Blog is full of invaluable information that will help you do just that.
If you haven’t already discovered the new Vine app you’ll definitely want to check it out. This cool app allows you to record a short 6 second videos with ease (no editing required – you just hold down the screen to record a new clip and it ties them all together in the end) and then you share them to your feed just like Instagram. I think Instagram is cool but I am really loving this new app. You can follow me @ConfettiStyle. Leave me a link to your Vine and I’ll be sure to follow you back.
Pottery Barn has a new blog called Inside and Out and I think it’s pretty cool. Not only do they share inspiration images and information about their products but the site also showcases readers homes, weddings and events. And there is a section called Tips & Tricks where they share how-to tips on entertaining, decorating, DIYing and more.
February is Heart Health Month and I hope that every woman reading my blog takes the time to read this article on What Every Woman Should Know About Heart Health.
Boy was I inspired by the latest issue of Adore Magazine. Be sure to check out the color article on page 78.

As seen during Spring and Summer runway shows, denim is a hot fabric trend in the fashion circuit. While that may not seem unusual, given that denim is a staple in just about everyone’s wardrobe, denim as a new, hot fabric trend in the home furnishings industry is what is taking people off guard.
Years ago, it was not unusual to see denim sofas as part of a “French Country” or “Shabby Chic” decor, but then just like so many other trends, the use of denim diminished and went by the way-side. Well, its 2010 and like the saying goes, “what goes around, comes around.”
Denim is back, and back in a refreshing and exciting way!
