My Stuff Series **The Decorista**

Today's My Stuff is so easy to introduce, it's the absolutely fabulous and oh so gorgeous Ashlina from The Decorista, you know her right? no? run! well check her My Stuff and then run, you are missing out, she is a doll. 
Her blog is just as amazing as her, filled with interiors inspirations that will leave you drooling for days.

Favorite Discovery: Blogging! my blog has brought HUGE joys to my life...(like the amazing + beautiful Helena)
Favorite Place in the World: Cabo Azul hotel in Cabo San Lucas...its where my boyfriend and i met and fell for each other.

Style Icons: The Kardashian Sisters...I have a curvy body and watching how these ladies dress theirs is total inspiration to me...and i wear black, a lot. I also LOVE Victoria Beckham + Kate Moss + Rachel Zoe (LA chic never looked so good)

Favorite Designer: Christian Louboutin...I was lucky enough to have met this man, he is extremely brilliant and I just adore his accent. I am also obviously obsessed with Kelly Wearstler.. she is the ultimate glamorous decorista.

Favorite Movie: Almost Famous...anything Cameron Crowe does, i love. i loved the clothes of that decade, there is something about it that reminds me of my hometown, Austin...i think its the music. I even named my car Penny Lane.

Jeans: Paige Premium Denim is hands down my favorite snug + comfy, i wear them as much as possible. Right now, I am loving the skinny jean with side zippers.

Underwear: Victorias Secret Pink has my favorites. I probably have over 100 pairs in these 2 styles...i'm obsessed.

Watch: my boyfriend gave me an amazing gold Chunky Fossil watch for christmas...He also brought me back a gaudy big chunky gold fake Rolex from Vietnam, i LOVE it. It's perfect!

Day dress and day bag: I have about a million long flowy dresses and handbags, I mix and match and change them up all the time. If I'm around town and you catch me in a dress, it is probably something like this...

I also adore Rebecca Minkhoff handbags, I am lusting over this one...and i want it in nude.

Evening Dress: i would love to wear a little something like this...

Shoes: Alexander Wang is genius!!!

Inspiration: I dream of these...

Favorite Art: I am kinda in love with vintage photography like Slim Aarons. love him!

Bedding: Marshalls, HomeGoods and Tuesday Morning have great sheet sets, I go through bedding all the time and love to mix and match finds from here.
Stationary: I love personalized monogrammed stationary sets from the corner stationary store here in Brentwood, CA. or Kate Spade has cute ones too.
Coffee table books: 
HUE Kelly Wearstler
Poolside by Slim Aarons
In the Pink by Dorothy Draper
these 3 are my faves.
Flowers: Gardenia is hands down my most favorite scent ever, along with tuberose. In the home nothing is better than tons of white flowers all over the place.

Perfume: Michael Kors by Michael Kors (its my siganture)
Moisturizer: Aveeno Positively Radiant SPF30 (this stuff is the best out there and super affordable)
Mascara: SEXY CURVES by Rimmel (my best kept secret)
Shampoo: Morrocan Oil makes the best hair products for my long mane.
Soap: I use anything and everything by Bath and Body Works for the shower.
