Dear Sister…

15 Nov

… Pink is pink :) I felt inspired by the good ol’ days in dressing today and thought I’d share! In the words of our little friend Megan: Hope you have a pink-a-licous day!


Blazer and necklace from Target and my favorite sparkly pink boyfriend style tank top from Top Shop.


Mani Pedi Fun

6 Jun

Last night I got pampered at a spa with a manicure, pedicure, facial and massage while chowing down on sushi and wine! Work hard play hard. Despite my very¬†embarrassing¬†appointment mix up which I will leave to your imagination, I had a great time and absolutely love my nail colors so thought I’d share!

On my finger nails I tried one of the colors from Essie’s new Bikini So Teeny line, Cascade Cool.

Here’s a shot of the whole collection! According to my nail tech. the blue Bikini So Teeny and the orange Fear or Desire are the best sellers.

On my toe nails I used Essie’s Fiesta. With a name like that my ugly feet are now ready to party.

I think they are perfect colors to start off the summer and turned out great! I also learned that the new trends for this year are actually glitters and neons. Might have to try those next!

Living Room Inspiration

24 May

I’ve been slowly but surely working on my living room in my current apartment which actually serves as a living room/dining room/office/guest bedroom. Can you see my challenge? I started out with more basic colors- blues, tans and browns, then decided to add a purple accent color. But, it still needs work. I need more color. The big pieces, such as my couch and kitchen table have to stay, but accessories are up for a major change. The couch is a tan loveseat that is huge and heavy and comfy. If the Michelin man from the commercials was tan and a couch, that would be it. I’m not upset about keeping my table either. It’s from IKEA and is perfect for the space! Frosted glass top with a silver frosted frame and white plastic chairs. I’m basically hardcore in love with it.

My starting point for the project is the picture from IKEA on the inspiration board below. I have a huge empty wall that needs some lovin’. This piece is large and in-charge and will work perfect in the space! I’m thinking a few bright throw pillows in various patterns, a few taller vases in similar colors to add some height, and possibly a new rug in a neutral color such as the one below. I’m obsessed with Target and IKEA which is where almost everything below is from! I’ll need a space to store blankets and pillows which takes care of the guest bedroom problem, and maybe a place to keep my computer. A small bench could be used as a side table as well as additional seating, and some candles and curtains take care of the lighting.

So, here is my very initial project board. Bright accessories paired with neutral furniture for hopefully a very cheery, multi-functional space! I’ll let you know how the final product ends up after my shopping trip : )
