Dear mattress company

Dear mattress company,

Please explain why the bottom of my box spring is covered by something that resembles tissue paper. I would like to know why you cover planks of wood and some sort of stuffing with something that can be torn open so easily.

I have a problem. I got a new kitten two weeks ago. He's really cute. Just see for yourself.



He enjoys lots of things we enjoy. Whether it's a nice nap, or some good old fashioned television.





But this? Not so fun. You're wondering where he is, aren't you? Look closer. Here is another shot. He got his {not so little} friend in on the fun.



I'll bet you're catching on now. You mattress people are so smart.

My cat managed to tear this "material" that you chose to cover the bottom half of a box spring, and has been hanging out in there. Now I don't know about you, but I don't want my cat hanging out in my box spring. All that unfinished wood, stuffing, and springs. Not safe.

So today, I was forced to check out this little mess.



Now imagine how embarrassing it would be to have to move this from one location to another. Looks pretty trashy. Don't you think?

Well, I had to improvise, because I could not leave it like this. And I'm pretty certain that what I did made the box spring even trashier than the image above. Prepare yourselves.


Yes, that's an old white tank top turned rag, and below, I stapled an envelope to cover a little hole. Do I get any points for using an old Ralph Lauren tank?

Imagine what I could have done if I only had some duct tape.

So. Mattress people. You may want to reconsider covering your box springs with something a bit more sturdy.

Give it some thought. I'm off to relax on my trashy mattress.

Thank you,

Danielle

Top 10

Hope you all had a great weekend! Here is this week's top 10!

10. I have been searching for the perfect pair of boots for over a year, and I finally found them! You won't believe it, but besides Uggs, I actually don't have any boots. I am really excited about these. I think they're really cute, and I got them 30% off!


9. Yesterday, my friend Jess came down to LA to spend the day with me. We went to lunch, did some shopping. It was really nice to have her here. And I love my birthday present!

WS pocket pie mold {and pie filling and crust mix -- not shown}

8. J and I went to the gym this morning. It felt so nice working out on a Sunday. Not sure what it is, but since it's usually a lazy day I felt especially productive. Maybe I'll get some of that "muscle tone" all the kids are talking about. After the gym, we went to lunch, walked around a bit, and went back to his place for dinner and Entourage.

7. Christmas is coming. You'll see it here, here, and here.


6. I have a new Halloween kit coming out this week. Here is a sneak peek!



5. Bloomies was having a huge sale this weekend. 20% off EVERYTHING. I got a great pair of legging jeans. I can't pick them up until the 1st, and I'm so excited to wear them. They are so soft, and so cute.


4. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I want to hold a raffle and donate the money earned to an organization that supports breast cancer. I was thinking Susan G. Komen but was wondering if anyone else had any other suggestions.


3. Not sure I mentioned this, but I am designing a menu for a catering company this week! Really excited about it. It's always fun working on something new.

2. Housewives, Bros & Sisters, Dexter, and Californication all came back tonight! I know. I watch too much TV.

1. My sis gave me my belated birthday present. A Tory Burch cosmetic case! I love it. I always have so much stuff in my purse {lip gloss, chap stick, iPhone headphones, concealer, etc...} so now I can keep it all in this cute case! I couldn't find a pic online and can't get a decent one in this lighting. You'll just have to take my word for it.

Have a great week, everyone!

Tacky Tuesday



I cannot think of anything {not even a fun day at Disneyland} that calls for plaid shorts and a zebra top. So wrong.

And I can't forget tacky tuesday.

Every so often {on a Tuesday} I may post a random, tacky photo. Won't you join me?



Say it with me.

Racerback bra. Come on.

And don't forget...I have a surprise that I'll be posting soon!
