Design: Textile Patterns & Designs

Hello All! I'm back!

To start things off I wanted to share with you a fabulous textile designer, Rianna Phillips. I found her Etsy Shop and Blog while searching different textile designers and patterns. Her work is absolutely amazing! I love fashionable finds that are out of the ordinary. I'm becoming a big fan of this new wave of fashion and style that is very artsy.

BABY LOVE: Lovely Items For Spring

Great finds for Baby Girl this year! Finding clothes for her gets better each year. I found a great Back Pack which works great as a Mommy/Baby Bag. It's perfect! I can haul all of my things and hers. It's a great color and probably matches most things that I have already. This bag will sure come in handy on vacation, when taking trips to the park and while shopping.

Teal Espadrilles - Crazy 8's // Belted Romper - Old Navy // Yellow Strapped Dress - BABY GAP // Polka Dot back Pack - ModCloth // BOON Sippy Cup - Target // Little Sunnies - BABY GAP // Coral Headband with Loop Bow - BABY GAP

Style: MINT Mayhem

I must admit, my favorite color this spring is MINT GREEN. It's everywhere, which is perfectly fine by me. I'm probably so attached, because my favorite icecream is Chocolate Chip Mint. What can I say, we were MINT-to-be! Here are some fabulous finds. I recently purchased the mint colored pants shown from Walmart - ONLY $16.88! Can't beat the price and they fit very well. I'm also in love with jewelry this season. There's so many styles to mix-n-match and choose from.

Mint Jeans - Walmart // Studded Mint Tote - Steve Madden // Mint Statement Necklace - Bauble Bar //  Mint + Stripe Sandals - Jessica Simpson //  GoOnGreen - OPI Nail Lacquer // Bracelet One - Bauble Bar //

House + Home: Spring Cleaning!

That's right...I SPIRNG CLEANED and it feels so good!!! Has anyone else done any cleaning lately? I've never been more excited about cleaning in my life. I've been married for five years now and we have accumulated so many things in such little time.

It's always good to get things in order and get organized. I haven't created any invites or been in touch with my craftiness since having my daughter. I'm long overdue for getting back to doing the things I love!

Old clothes, tons of shoes, purses and bags that I haven't used, baby girl's clothes from her first year, stuffed animals and so much more out the door!

I look forward to a wonderful spring, full of nice weather, bright bold colors and getting back into the swing of things. Spring 2013 here I come!

House + Home : Using What You Already Have

I've been considering purchasing new furniture for our home -  a wardrobe for our bedroom, chest for baby girl's room and I'd like new furniture in the den. We could sure use a few upgrades, but I would like to do it on a budget. During these days and times it's more common to do it yourself, craft it up and turn old into new.

I'm always in search of ways to enhance and make good use of things I already have. I came across these stylish O'verlays by Danika & Cheryle. What an amazing way to add a pop of style to any room. They even provide Ikea to Overlays, so that you know which pairings work best. This is definitely a fun project with many sophisticated solutions.
