Such Style

I am always impressed with people who can dress well, and I even get a little jealous when they have nailed down their own classic style.  Working an out fit to get all the attention it needs takes a lot of thought, whether this is intentional or not.  There are a lot of elements that line up perfectly when an outfit is stunning, like knowing what you want to wear, how to wear it and then, knowing the right place to wear it is the tricky part, but when those three magically happen~ that’s what I call a “stunner”.  There usually is one person at every event I attend that I find to shine like a star.  They just have their style down and the perfect place to go wearing it.  You be the judge, but this gal, Isis is a “stunner” to me!  So jealous of her effortless style.  Here are a few of my favorite Isis looks!  Notice how well she mixes inexpensive and affordable items to create her signature style!

Wall of Art

I enjoy being creative so I am drawn towards art work that evokes feelings, is modern with a heavy frame or mixed with traditional decor.  I love photographs mixed other eye catching art.  To me a frame is the bow on how the image is presented and enhanced.  One of my most favorite things to do is create an eclectic collection of images and art that hang together.  They don’t have to be like one another, but how they relate to each other or how you feel when you look at the pictures together.  Here are a few collections that I appreciate and admire.


Love the different sizes and styles of grouped art.

One giant piece of work surround by various frames.
Black and white photographs that are the same size and same frames, but matted differently!
Similar color pallet, gold tones and art famed and unframed.  The the various sizes but all rectangles.
A mass of pictures that are symmetrical in style.
All this colorful art is created with white backgrounds.  Pops of color!
Framed the same!
Similar color pallet
Styles are very much the same and mostly unframed.
I tend to create photo collections that are of different styles and mixed medium.

Reflecting on 2012

As I think about this past year I have a lot of happy and accomplished feelings.  I honestly feel like this has been one of my best years, as everything seemed to fall into place, with family, friendships and business decisions.  I feel so much gratitude with how balanced this year turned out with love, my family, relationships, friendships, the blogging community and my ever so grateful clients.

A few of my favorite moments of 2012

Gifting the way I like

DSC_0005Giving a gift is one of my most favorite things ever, and for me the wrapping or presentation is just as important as the gift your giving.  If you’re giving a thoughtful gift, don’t stop there, continue to make sure the wrapping is just as stunning as the gift.  Using a bag and shoving your great gift inside is tacky.  Don’t do it, unless the bag is just as good as the gift.  I admit I picked up some fun snarky lady bags that have a fun saying on them, which only works because I am giving a gag gift (wine glass that fits an entire bottle of wine)!

In order to prepare for your wrapping you must do a few things first.  Think about who and what you are giving, I even think as far as where I giving the gift.  I wouldn’t give a glass bowl filled with goodies at a restaurant, but in their home or workplace is fine.

Items to make sure you have:

1.  Pretty paper and different colors

2.  Various ribbons- sassy, classy, and pretty in all different colors

3.  Natural twine or ribbon

4.  Various tags or small cards

5.  Stickers or sticky rhinestones

6.  flat ornaments

Sweet Stocking Stuffers

I find most of these products worth using or absolutely gorgous, so why not give them to your own family.  I always wrap my stocking gifts and I like a lot of little gifts in a stocking, since they’re like the icing on the cake, why not make all your gifts sweet.
