Polka Dots & Leopard Spots!

Mixing prints can be very fun, especially in Spring where you can play with an array of different colours. I particularly love mixing polka dots & leopard spots. There’s just something about that look that commands attention. Dots & Spots are definitely a show stopper and a must-try if you haven’t done so already. There are so many ways to rock this mix…pair a polka dot blouse or a lightweight sweater with distressed denim and a leopard print belt or shoes or pair polka dot bottoms with a simple top and leopart print accessories. There are endless possibilities of how you can rock this power combo. Here are some inspirational boards featuring Polka Dots & Leopart Spots!           You can even incorporate polka dots &leopard prints in your home.(Images via Pinterest)

Will you be mixing these prints this Spring?

Happy Friday! ❤️xo

2015 Colour Of The Year: Marsala!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/d2f/36340188/files/2015/01/img_4306.jpg
Pantone, Inc. is the world-renowned authority on colour and this year, they have declared Marsala as “Colour of the Year”.

Marsala is an earthy red wine tone that is hearty, rich, stylish and universally appealing. This elegant statement colour is perfect on its own or as a strong accent to many other colours such as grey, ivory and olive.

It can easily be translated into your everyday life. In fashion, you can go monochromatic with a dress and accessories or a sweater and skirt. In home furnishings and interiors, you can focus on adding accent pieces such as chairs, rugs, throws, cushions or you can go bold by painting a feature wall in this welcoming hue. In beauty, you can have fun with lips, nails, eyeshadows and cheeks.

Need some ideas…Here are some inspirational looks featuring Marsala.

Radiant Orchid is the perfect harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones that exudes confidence, happiness, love and health.

It can easily be integrated into your life. In fashion, you can go bold with a dress or a trench coat or it can be as simple as adding a purse, shoes or jewelry. In home decor, you can focus on adding accent chairs, throws, cushions or lamps. In beauty, you can have fun with lips, nails, eyes and even hair accessories.

Need some ideas…

DIY: Shoe Closet!

I must confess…I LOVE shoes! 😍
Shoe-a-holic…Me!?….ummm maybe!? 👠
Recently I took on a project of building my shoe closet. It was really simple…I bought 2 Billy bookcases from IKEA for $49 (sale price; regular price:$69) and it took me less than 2 hours to put them both up. Everything I needed came with the package besides a hammer (tip: you can use the bottom of a shoe, preferably an old pair). 😝
I followed the instructions included in the box and Tah-Dah!!!
My very own Shoe Closet!!!
