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
At Fountain of 30, Lauren and I are huge proponents of dressing in a mix of high low fashion. It simply makes sense. When it comes to styling, I like to strike a nice balance of luxury vs. steal! My rule of thumb is to showcase special investment designer pieces by surrounding them with low priced items that do not…
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 September and the kids are back in school, summer work hours are over and the stores are chock full of new fall fashion! But it’s 200 degrees out (yes, really!) but it doesn’t quite look right to wear white sandals, eyelet, summer neon colors and Lilly Pulitzer prints. This kind of weather may hold on through October, too! So what are we supposed to wear?
This week I was surprised to find myself looking at dresses (more than shoes) during my daily fashion browsing allotted time (hey everyone needs a break and this is how I spend mine, don’t judge). It is probably because I’m looking forward to a few weddings I will be attending and even though the dates are set for 2017, I am already thinking about what to wear! My eyes were transfixed on few dresses I adored and I sighed, “I would have so worn this dress! It is so me.” But that was the me about 20 years ago
Here’s a trend we noticed shaping up in a big way for fall 16: bell sleeves! It’s fun, it’s flirty, it’s dramatic and it’s a little retro (does the look ring a bell?)
I wear jeans almost every day and recently (for no particular reason) I decided to “glam up” my white scoop neck T-shirt and faded jeans with a blingy statement necklace from J.Crew. I know statement necklaces are not considered “on trend” but I don’t care, I still like the look and sometimes you have to go with your gut. I like the contrast of a bold necklace especially in summer and with casual clothes. I got compliments on my statement necklace all day from everyone
