• Mani Monday: Easter Nails

    30 March, 2015 0 Comment

    Just in time for a short break from work and school! Before feasting on tasty treats, add some festivity to your style with Easter nails! Here are just a few ideas that have caught my eye on Pinterest. All of these ideas are easy enough to handle without going to a nail salon – at least if you have a steady hand or a friend with a steady hand!

    Easter Nails: Bunnies

    I love this design a lot because of all the possibilities! Once you get the basic bunny shape down, you can do many different facial expressions for your own special touch! But if you were never the biggest fan of the Easter bunny (and I can understand why – just look at these monstrous easter bunnies on Buzzfeed!), the baby chicks are another cute option!

    But of course Easter eggs are probably the most fun and festive option! In the same way that you can design Easter eggs in hundreds of different ways, you can make your Easter egg manicure just as unique and your own! Here are some of my favorites:

    We hope you have a Happy Easter if you celebrate and a happy mini holiday! Hope you have time to paint your nails with an Easter-themed manicure for the festivities!

    Brighten up your garden or patio with some fun and creative spring decor! Sure, April will bring some showers. But with May flowers, it’s fun to decorate!

    If you love gardening, why not get inventive with your planters? Here are some of the more unique, eye-catching and festive planters we’ve seen on Pinterest. These ideas are especially great because they make use of old, discarded items. So they’re Eco-friendly and will make wonderful components to your outdoor decor!

    And who wouldn’t wanted to try a few random odds and ends to liven things up a bit? Something as simple as up-cycling an old lamp to make a birdbath or otherwise adorable decorative item. Or using an old tire to make a cushion for the outdoors. And adding in DIY wind chimes for a bit of color and a little bit of music for your garden or patio. The possibilities are endless!

  • Trend to Try: Fringe

    23 March, 2015 0 Comment

    Fringe has steadily been making a comeback! Dresses, jackets, accessories, boots, pants – you name it! Fringe has made its way back into our hearts. Just look at the styles that have hit the runways spring 2015 if you’re not convinced. Yes, we’re in for a blast from the past. And it’s fun and chic! Fringe Trend

    Fringe has been creeping its way forward, so now we see fabulous dresses like these hitting the runways and soon to hit the clothing racks! Although I love going all out with fringe from top to bottom, I’m also a big fan of the subtle touch on the right. The single layer at the bottom of the dress is definitely a winner in my book!

    The trend isn’t only popular with dresses! Check out both celebrities and local fashionistas for other great looks incorporating the 1970s hit! If you’re not willing to doll up in fringe from top to bottom in a dress, then skirts are the go-to alternative. They’re just as cute and festive! And as you can see from the styles of these fabulous ladies, both long skirts and short skirts work the trend!
