It happens to the best of us. We start working on many different things, not realizing the dates on the calendar. Then, it hits you. it could either be in the dead of night, dripping from a cold sweat or throwing a side-eye to all the extra families at brunch on Sunday. You forgot it’s Mother’s Day, and even worse is you don’t have a gift to show for it.
It’s not just Starbucks that has made us unicorn crazy. Designers have added this single horned creature and a kaleidoscope of colors everywhere. 2017 is the year of the unicorn.
It’s the beginning of April, which means it’s the prime house/apartment hunting time. Maybe you are still looking for the place to call your home, or you might have already found it. The most important thing you have to do now is decorate. Style your new apartment!
Can’t stand all this gloom and cold either? Yeah, we know. We got a taste of the warm weather but it appears it didn’t hold out for very long, and now we’re all back in winter jackets for the time being. So, it can’t hurt to dream about hitting the beach, right? Maybe now we can think about future purchases for the 90 degree weather that will be here fairly soon.
Yeah yeah, global warming is a myth. The groundhog and his shadow are in a constant, never-ending battle for deciding the future. Whatever the case may be (and however long it may take), the weather is getting warmer. Minus Chicago and a sudden snowfall this weekend, the skies are getting sunnier and the days are heating up. For a few…
February is the best month to spread a little love around! Valentine’s Day is all about spreading joy to those around you. Hearts… and red! Who doesn’t love red? It’s not only about getting a gift for your significant other, you can also get one of a kind trinkets for your favorites – family members, kids, besties, or even your…
We are knee-deep into awards season. We just through the glamour of the Golden Globes and there’s much more to come before we even get to the grand-daddy of them all – snagging that gilded statue at the 89th Annual Academy Awards. So, we know the question you are really asking yourself right now is: How can I put together a lavish party so my friends and I can sit around, get a little tipsy and judge the actors mercilessly in the comfort of my own home? For a surprisingly detailed question, I magically have the answer for that!
Finally! It seems like this has been the never ending year but alas, 2016 is almost over. What better way to shake off the old baggage and change it up for 2017 than to completely change your outlook?
Where has the year gone? It feels like just yesterday we were popping bottles for New Year’s Eve and a few days later, celebrating the beginning of patio season aka summer. And now, it is time for families to gather for the holidays. First up on the list – Thanksgiving! You might be lucky enough to head out of town for some free food, as well as room and board. But you might be having Thanksgiving in your home.
As the seasons change and temperatures get a little colder, you might feel it’s time to transform your home. But who has that kind of money? You might think you have to change everything from the couch to the rug to even the coasters. Not even close! Just a few small changes or one larger addition is all you need to add a little autumn into your home
Need a break from it all? Just wanna get away from the hustle of the city? Well, you’re in luck! Now is definitely the best time for travel. That little break in October, right before the holidays arrive is just the relaxation and recharge your body needs to make it through to 2017. It doesn’t have to be anywhere far, or even warm, just a place where you can decompress away from work and get focused on a little more play.
The changing of the leaves means the changing of everything: wardrobe, staying inside more and even the look of your abode. Being indoors for the next few months might change your ideas on how much you really loved those bright blue curtains three months ago. You don’t have to make any big changes, just add in a few pieces for a new look.
It’s time for back to school, and while for some it might mean it’s time once again for pens, pencils and schoolbooks, for others it might be a whole new set of goodies for themselves! You could be thinking, well, Black Friday is the best time to get your most expensive items. Who wants to wait that long? You can get the best tech gadgets and accessories now
We were hit over the head with the peasant blouse for spring, and it is still going strong for fall 2016. I remember a favorite peasant blouse I owned and wore in the late 70s. It was black cotton with a tiny blue and white floral print with adjustable drawstrings at the neckline and the waist. It was comfortable and looked perfect with faded high waist wide leg jeans! This Ulla Johnson Blouse (pictured above) reminds me of it! You may be thinking “Oh no, not that look…I don’t want to go there again.” But you don’t have to, because this time around (just as it usually is with fashion) the look is much different
We’ve got Olympics fever and are very proud of Team USA! They are kicking butt and taking no prisoners! Have you seen our lightening bolt swimmers and the “Final Five” gymnasts? But we are a little too old to show our support with stars and stripes nail polish, which may be adorable on our swimmers, but not us. So we are going for the gold (fashion and accessories, that is) because we love a good excuse to shop
