I always have fun finding similar trends between fashion and home furnishings. Some people probably think that these two fields are very different from one another, but in reality, they really aren’t. In my book, designers are designers. Whether their specialty is clothing or interior, they all have great creative eyes that always seem to correspond with each other. I don’t know if you all remember that I told you that mixed prints are very in this fashion season. It seems that this is also the case in interior design. From colorful poufs and pillows, to shoes and dresses, be resourceful with what you have, and mix what you got! Have fun and don’t think that you are going too overboard, because when it comes to mixing, you can’t go wrong.

As everyone knows, yesterday was Mother’s Day. I must say, that my mom and I had a fabulous day. We started off by going to Borders, walked over to our manicure and pedicure appointments at the Polished Lounge, then walked next door to our reservation at Dartealing, for afternoon tea. Could our day get any better? Afternoon tea always gets you in the mood to dress up. Sadly, we didn’t put on any big dresses, but if we did, this is what I would have thrown together. I hope all of you mothers out there had a great day!

Sevin Nyne

I am always on the look out for a new tanning product. I have been out of the sun for the past few months, and I am in desperate need for a little golden glow. Yes, I know, most of us were out of the sun because it really wasn’t out to play! Lindsay Lohan did a collaboration with airbrush tanner, Lorit, and they came up with the product Sevin Nyne. I have seen it in multiple magazines, and it has gotten pretty good reviews, so it is on the top of my list to get. You can only get it at Sephora, so if you are interested in the product, click here to instantly get a glow.

Bare Naked

Kim Kardashian was a part of a new spread that’s in Harpers Bazaar. Yes, she is naked, and I am sure the magazine will sell many more copies than they usually do. I think it is great when celebrities feel so confident with their bodies that they can pose nude and try to get a message across to be happy with who you are. I will say that Kim does look beautiful, and I believe many people will look up to her a lot more after doing this shoot.

Whenever my aunt comes to town to visit, I can always look forward to her bringing a big bag of goodies for me. From Dior eyeshadows, to Chanel lipsticks, I always feel like I am a kid in a candy store. One of my favorites that she brought this trip was an Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Skin product. My skin has been extremely dry lately, and this has really started to change that. I suggest that anyone who needs some skin repair, whether it’s from sun damage or dryness, this is the right product for you.

I have always been a huge fan of Audrey Hepburn. Not only was she a style icon, but she was a very talented actress. I always have so much fun watching old films of her. She just came off as such a classy lady that everyone wanted to be like. Emma Thompson told BBC that she is in the process of writing a re-make of My Fair Lady, that will star the new brilliant actress, Carey Mulligan. I so hope that this happens! Nothing sounds more amazing than to go to an old theatre to see a re-make of one of the best films, filled with fabulous costumes! I am really wishing that these plans actually pull through, and show everyone that remakes of old movies can be worth it.

I have always been a fan of the color yellow. Many people tend to stay away from this bright, cheerful color because it isn’t their color. Personally, I believe that having this color on your walls, or even anywhere in your home, and of course in your wardrobe, can increase your happiness. At my old house, my walls were a nice subtle yellow, and I always woke up in a good mood. I’m convinced it was because of my walls. This week at work the girls changed the display behind the front desk, and it looks awesome. It truly is a very warm, welcoming look that will bring many customers into our store. If you thought you weren’t a yellow fan, think again, because after you see our display, I think your opinion will change.
