A Change of Scenery | November 30, 2012

Wow, so it took a lot longer than expected but it's finally here. I hope you like the new look Eat Drink Chic!

I'm feeling a newfound surge of inspiration. Sometimes all you need is a change of scenery...

Here are some new features that may interest you:

  • A brand new page dedicated to my DIY and Freebies.
  • You can now subscribe to email updates. (See left column). 
  • I've finally joined Pinterest!  However, there's not much there yet... will get to it soon! 
  • I've made sharing posts and images a lot easier with a social media bar at the bottom of each post and 'pin it' rollovers on each image.

If you experience any issues on the new site, please let me know! I appreciate the feedback :)

Cushion Love | November 05, 2012

I have a wee bit of a cushion obsession. I can't stop collecting them. To me they're like small, affordable works of art.

Currently, I'm loving these bright collections...
