I've got to admit - I am forever in love with the romantic tale of The Glass Slipper - better known as, "Cinderella" for a good majority of my life. I mean, seriously, who doesn't want a convenient seamstress (i.e. fairy godmother) to whip up a fantastic gown just in time to make you the envy of everyone and capture the heart of Prince Charming? Alas, I've grown up to adore the story for it's true meaning: stay calm and carry on. Recently, say the past 26 years or so, I've become obsessed with recreating a realistic version of Cinderella's life within my own. Think... tiaras, pumpkins and clocks. Enjoy!

Recently, I've found that I finally have a little time to start my blog - sadly, thanks to the economy - but, luckily I will have more time to devote to Martha Stewart inspired projects, reading blogs of farm dwellers in Idaho and catching up on all my celebrity beauty secrets. While I do have less "real work" I am committed to making my blog NESTPARTY | Guide to a Stylish Life an awesome distraction from reality one fantastic idea at a time.
