Who doesn't love Peonies? They are beautiful, bright, but expensive! Even faux Peony arrangements are costly, some are upwards of $90.00. Here is a cost efficient D.I.Y that is oh so simple.
What you'll need: a vase, faux flowers, scissors, a mixing bowl & acrylic water
Today is my beautiful boss's birthday! Lindsey Hene, owner of Lindsey Hene Interiors, turns a year older. I am so lucky to be working on her team. She is a wonderfully gifted human. Lindsey has the sharpest personal style and it transitions impeccably into her work. From being recognized on Houzz, to being featured in other publications; it is a great honor to witness her work as she climbs upwards and on.
Some of her work:
Let's talk about curling wands! Last year I made this purchase and I haven't looked back since. I found the product from a Lauren Curtis tutorial on YouTube. What I bought was the Lustrum 5in1 curling wand. It retails for $280.00. However, I promise you there are coupons on the web in the ballpark of $100 off. As long as you do your research NuMe wands are a good deal.
The wand heats up quickly to 410°F and creates voluminous curls. While the curls do fall overtime, they leave great body in the hair allowing you to rock the look for a few days. Stay inspired Monday through Friday with these versatile curling barrels for your locks.
In order from left to right: 25mm, 32mm, 19mm, 13&25, 25mm-13mm
From her pre-Carrie Bradshaw days until now, S.J.P continues to have an impeccable and daring style. I am an avid fan of Sex & the City and have probably seen every episode twice (mostly for the juicy gossip and fashion).
Sarah Jessica Parker has been a trendsetter from the late 90's, and still is today. Carrie's iconic nameplate necklace has even made it's way into my closet and at one moment I wanted a perm just like her.
Enough said...just look at the girl!
She even created her own shoe collection called SJP which later expanded into some purses. The collection is available at Nordstrom's, but be warned nearly everything is upwards of $300.00.
I love you Sarah! Can I please have the keys to your closet now?
Work hard, dress sharp, & stay humble, some words that everyone should follow.
I'd like to share with you a sweet piece of gold foil artwork I found on Etsy. This Bee print is from The Digital Design and is available in 5x7($11) or 8x10($20). Digital Studio is full of charming art...it was hard to pick one, I wanted them all! Also, I got this natural wood frame from Anthropologie for $48. Yes, this is a little pricy for a frame but I fell in love. The natural wood turned out beautiful, it's simple yet unique.
P.s. I hope everyone has a happy friday!
These words of wisdom come from the front man of Fall Out Boy. For me, this is one of the hardest things...it's so easy to get a stuck in a rut of negativity. Personally, I havn't had a good week. I get angry quickly and don't allow any other emotion in. However, this quote opened my eyes to the fact that I am in charge of my emotions and only I can make myself mad. It's much more productive to turn an unfavorable situation into something positive.
P.s Thank God tomorrow is Friday, who's ready for the weekend?
Bid day at Ole Miss is seriously crazy. Hell, even the weekdays in Oxford are spirited and the square is alive. However, it was especially neat to see rush week unfold. Nearly 40% of the student body participates and it's in the top 10 list of best SEC schools. Here is a look into Phi Mu's: This is how we Mu it bid day. Viva la Mu!!!
Congratulations to all the new Phi Mu sisters, may you have many swap parties in your future & more!
*P.s all sorority sisters:
I am selling quatrefoil necklaces. If your interested you can click the button below or visit my shop page. I only have 3 of these babies!
Hooray for bright and fun notebooks! You can get these spirited pads from May Designs & personalize your ideal agenda, journal, or even calligraphy book. Their pattern options are lively and bold. I was so impressed by their variety that I had to buy four. Join the fight against ugly notebooks and notecards.
I would highly recommend this product because it's unique and handy. There are 20 available insides ranging from wedding planners, workout logs, to kids coloring books. I would give this product 5 stars.
See what you can create.
Last weekend was a busy one...traveling to Tennessee and Mississippi in 3 quick days. My 16 year old brother and his travel ball team had the opportunity to play in the Ole Miss stadium. We were thrilled to hear about this because my sister attends the school. This was a weekend full of ball games, bid days, and good eats.
It was the coolest thing to see him play in a stadium this grand. He has always loved baseball and was given the nickname Naxx when he was 12 for having raw natural ability & power. Not only can he catch, pitch, and field; he can hit like no other.
Ole Miss is a beautiful campus full of southern charm. As I get more and more familiar with it, I love it even more. We are heading back there in October for a football game, finally it's Grove season!!!
This is Jake. He is 16 and loves baseball, fishing, and tying flies. Here is a look into his man-cave/fly tying station. He often creates his own from watching YouTube videos and trades them with friends. As I have come to discover fly tying for boys is essentially like girls making friendship bracelets. His tools range from furry fluff, nail polish, metallic strings, and hospital tools to mend them altogether.
Here is a collection of his work ...both big&small
I have created Picky Me due to a common characteristic of mine, which is that I can't settle...on anything. I believe in the best of what's out there. Here you can find anything from home inspirations to fashion.
