DECORATING WITH PINK


I want to start off by saying welcome back to my blog. If this is your first time, welcome and I hope you enjoy it! 

This post will be all about how I started incorporating the color pink or better yet blush in my designs. Never did I think that my house would be pink all over. Even though I love the color pink, I didn't want my house too look too girly. 
 

Boy how I started using pink in my house! I used Pink and floral covers which you can find Here. It's a good idea to buy covers for your pillows because when you need a change all you do is change the cover and you're set!


When I found this bench in the color pink, it was like seeing angels in the sky. I loved it since the first time I laid eyes on it and I decided I needed it for my home.
It was a little bit of a risk as it was pink and I've never had pink in my home interiors. But just like they say, live in the moment and don't worry about tomorrow.



I'm in the process of upholstering my chairs with a pink zebra fabric which I'll show you in another post. 


I don't have a lot of pink, but with my flowers which are either tulips or peonies, my house looks ready for summer.
















I hope you like it and enjoyed it and comments are always welcome! If you have any questions feel free to ask I would be more than happy to answer!

HAIR PROBLEMS?





Your hair says a lot about you so why not take care of it?  For the most part, the first thing a person looks at when they meet you is your hair. You can have the most beautiful face in the world, but if your hair is not taken care of you can have a lot to wish for.  As far back as I can remember I've always tried to take care of my hair.  Homemade masks, store bought products, and much much more.

Hair is so so important. It can say a lot about you, and if you don't take care of it like you should, you can loose your shine, texture, and body.  That's why it's so important to take care of it.
Below I'll be giving you some tips that will hopefully help you out.  If you know what kind of hair type you have, you'll learn a bit about your hair here.  Here's some tips I've learned a long the way from magazines and books.

2015 CHRISTMAS HOME TOUR - PART II

 

Welcome to the 2nd part of my Christmas Home tour! I hope you enjoyed the first one! Now I want to show you the second half of my home. Hope you like it!
Christmas time is very important to me which is why I like to decorate as much as possible, from the bedrooms to the bathrooms. What can I say, it's my favorite holiday and not only because of the gifts but also because we always have friends and family over and we have such a great time.

This year I decided to put up two trees. I was out buying some things at Michael's and they started putting up trees in October. I took one look at the tree and noticed it was different, it was skinny and elegant. I thought it was perfect for my second living room as there's not a lot of space. Well I think it came out perfect  and it makes the house look more festive. I've always wanted to have more than one tree in my house but since they're all so big I didn't have the room. But with this tree, it makes me want to put on in every room since they don't take up a lot space and they look beautiful.

2015 CHRISTMAS HOME TOUR - PART I


I am beyond thrilled to invite you all into my home for this special occasion! I've partnered up with a group of interior design bloggers for this years Christmas home tour! This year is a bit different for me. It will be my second year doing a Christmas home tour but what's different is that I'm teamed up with a group of great friends that I met when I joined Instagram.

  Let's began shall we? WELCOME TO MY HOME!!  My decoration this year is a bit different from past years. Why? Because I normally like to use bright colors that will stand out, and this year I went with pastels. I did however use some bright colors in different areas of my home so I don't loose my signature touch!

 Not too long ago we were renovating the outside of our home since we haven't lived here for long. Well, the renovations continue. We painted the outside a cream color with black and white and for that reason I had to use the typical red Christmas color. My door is black and the red really stands out. Just add a couple of red ornaments and you're set. My husband still hasn't decided if he's going to be putting up lights, the same old story. We're going on 4 years without Christmas lights! Maybe one day I'll go out and find someone to put them up for me lol.

SPLURGE OR SAVE?


                                            


Have you ever wanted something so badly but thought it was too expensive? Well that's what happened to me when I saw a new lamp that Kate Spade came out with. Have you seen the new home collection? It's to die for! I love anything Kate Spade. I was on the verge of buying it because I liked it so much. It was beautiful. But in that moment that I was browsing through the website, something caught my eye, A PURSE! Those who know me, know that I have an obsession with designer purses (even thought I don't buy them often). But that was my dilemna, the purse or the lamp. Of course in the end I chose the purse and a couple of other things. I got a super cute wallet, some earrings, and some bracelets. After I thought, since I didn't buy it, I have to find a way to recreate this lamp because I was in love with it. First things first I went to HomeGoods to look for something similar. It's good to try and DIY things that are out of your price point so you will still be able to have your house the way you want it without spending a fortune.
