I couldn’t take it anymore. With so many ladies getting in on the rainbow hair trend, stepping out in pink, purple or blue hair (or all at the same time), I had to try it myself. Admittedly, I’m more of a conservative fashionista who goes for the element of bold surprise: fluorescent nails to go along […]
There’s something soothing about the sound of a wind chime. What can drive us crazy, though, are 1) people who decorate their entire yard with so many chimes that we need earplugs in the slightest breeze and 2) chimes that are too cutesy. After all, we want subtle sounds that create a feeling of zen, without looking like […]
When I’m looking for fantastic deals that don’t cut corners on quality, “Zappos” is one of the first words I type in my computer. I remember my neighbor was always getting boxes delivered to her house, and she’d go on and on about how great ordering from them was. That was years ago. To this day, […]
I love plants. I mean, I once rescued a “dying” hanging ivy my ex-boss tossed in the trash and now, three years later, I have four new plants from it. However, I’m guilty of keeping plants in the flower pots they came with (often beige and plastic) or worse, my own glassware. Seriously, a coffee mug filled with […]
Sure, clocks are reminders that Monday morning *sigh* has arrived or that it’s time to meet up with friends. Even though things like keeping track of how long the lasagna’s been in the oven isn’t the most exciting thing in the world, our clocks can be. Who says they have to all be doctor’s office basic? Cool clocks […]
Work can be crazy, but we can take the pressure off when we’re back at our desks by creating a whimsical workspace. By making our office or cubicle our own, it’s easier to shake off stressful meetings and forget weird hallway conversations (I still don’t know which is worse). Surrounding ourselves with what we love makes the day so much […]
Along with the warmer weather comes skin-baring styles like halter tops. No, we’re not talking about tops that show virtually all of our um, Kardashians, but ones that let us show skin in all the right places . . . dressy halter tops can look stylish and sexy without looking like we frequent a seedy street corner.
Easter Sunday is almost here which means putting that perfect Easter meal together. Yet much of the Easter table décor consists of kindergarten-ish plastic eggs and cartoony bunnies.
Summer will be here before we know it and unless we’ve been living on another planet, lots of stores have been dropping the “time to get a bathing suit” hint, right? It’s all we see as soon as we enter, so we’ll take it as our cue to stock up on suits while the styles we like (at the prices […]
BYOB? Keep your wine bottle as stylish as you are. In other words, skip the brown paper bag wrapped around your fave Chardonnay and instead, choose pretty wine totes. Seriously, meeting your friends for dinner and showing up with a tattered paper bag doesn’t exude style (worse if the receipt is still stapled to the bag).
