I've been having a big crush on polka dots lately. Can you blame me?? This adorable print got me thinking about my weekly inspiration post which quickly became a date night outfit idea. This even has a kind of grown up Minnie Mouse appeal to it. I love pairing black and white together with a pop of red and a hint of gold. It feels so very parisian chic. Shop the outfit details above. Enjoy your Wednesday everyone!
Happy Wednesday loves! As usual, Wednesday is always devoted to inspiration and today I chose High Tea for the theme. One of my favorite memories is having tea with my mom while we watched Murder She Wrote or just chatted about life. Also, while on vacation in Rehoboth Beach, we would always go for high tea at the Plaza Hotel. She absolutely adored it. Everything is available to shop with the links above.
Now that Spring has sprung, I've been thinking about bright colors along with soft pastel ones. Both are so perfect for spring as well as the upcoming summer season. Here's some pretty accessories I've been eying up lately. The white clutch and floral heels I already bought and absolutely love. Enjoy this inspiration!
Since sleep and relaxation have been on my mind quite a bit this past week, I thought it would be fitting to have a little sweet dream inspiration. After all, we spend 1/3 of our life sleeping! Might as well make it as lovely as possible. Enjoy!
Light Blue Hues
Happy Friday everyone. Lately I've been craving some light blue hues for Spring and beyond. Here are some lovely inspiring pieces that are currently available and everything is under $100. Notice the Disney Cinderella shirt? Lauren Conrad is coming out with a Disney inspired line for Kohls, along with her LC Lauren Conrad line, for the upcoming live action movie Cinderella. I can hardly wait! The line is available on February 22nd.
Flower Arranging Tips
Nothing beats having fresh flowers in your home. The bright colors and fragrant smells remind me of what such beauty there is in this world. Bringing fresh flowers into your home will no doubt brighten up your mood. While filling your home with fresh flowers can be costly, one trick I've learned is to buy bunches of inexpensive flowers, separate them all out, and then make my own small arrangements in pretty vases. So now you have the small arrangements chosen for each vase. Another trick I've learned is to take clear tape and make a grid pattern at the opening home of the vase. Think like a tic-tac-toe game. After creating the grid and cutting the stems to the appropriate length, place each flower within each little square until you can no longer see the clear tape. This way the flowers stay upright and do not fall over. Think outside of the box too with your vases. Why not try a bowl (cut the stems short for this), a teacup, or even a mason jar?
Do one thing everyday that makes you smile
Dancing always brings a smile to my face. The feeling of moving to a song I love simply makes me laugh with happiness. The rush of endorphins from jumping, twirling, side stepping (like a mini exercise routine) also adds to my overall happiness at the end of the song. My challenge to you is to do one thing everyday that makes you happy. You'll thank me for it later on. Anything from being outdoors, exercising, sleeping more, hiking, dancing, singing, watching a movie, reading a book, taking a photograph, whatever you heart desires, will have a positive outcome on your daily life. Studies show that when we do an activity we enjoy, it produces an overall effect of positive and enjoyable experiences for us elsewhere in our lives as in the workplace. Why not take some time then to make ourselves happy?
Never Giver Up
Happy Thursday everyone! This being my first blog post, I felt it would be appropriate to make it an inspirational one. My mother always said to never give up no matter what obstacles come your way. These past few months have been difficult after losing her, but her advice has stuck with me through it all. Life certainly threw my mother some curve balls, but she always took the high road and never let them get her down. She was the definition of strength, beauty, and courage rolled into one.
I find it only fitting that this first post be dedicated to her. She inspires me each day to follow my dreams and she always gave me encouragement to be the best I can be. She lived a good and happy life, and even after her diagnoses, she still continued to stay positive and find the beauty in all life has to give. In part, because of her uplifting words, I decided to create this site and continue to follow my starry eyed dreams. I'm extremely thrilled to be able to do this and share my creativity.
