As an interior designer I always seem to be passing out advice (and to be honest sometimes judgment) about other people's décor. Realistically it's my job to pay attention to every last detail, we're talking minutia like picture hanging hardware, thread count on sheets and the difference between satin nickel and just plain nickel.Read More »
Last week I was cold busted by a friend, who moved the strategically placed, framed photo on my night stand which had been hiding my Sony box alarm clock from 1986. Yes, I could have lied and said I was going retro, but that didn't seem to make any sense considering my bedroom has a French traditional flare to it. I'm not sure if it was attachment anxiety (I bought it with my allowance in high school), laziness, or the unwillingness to spend a grip on a new bedroom alarm clock, but at that moment, I knew I had to walk the line, practice what I preach and buy myself a decent alarm clock. A sense of relief washed over me when I began my search for the perfect timepiece, not only were they pleasing to look at, but they had tons of features and were all pretty reasonable priced.
