get this look: budget eat in kitchen nook

Seeing dreamy space in magazines is a love/hate kinda thing for me. I love to look at them, yet hate to think about how much money it took to create that look.

So when Jennifer contacted me earlier this year to see if I would like to play with her upcoming collection, Shimmer, I totally jumped at the chance.
