I love getting funky with my polish. I see my nails as little canvases that I can practically do anything with! If you're looking for a little inspiration, Pshiiit has the best collection of nail-art demos I've seen. Here are some of my favorites.
They're perfect for bringing a splash of color to your little hand canvases this Summer :)
I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter! It was so wonderful enjoying the outdoors, thanks to the beautiful weather in Los Angeles this weekend. Aside from the little sunburn I got (darn this Irish complexion,) it was such an inspiring time! I just loved taking in all the colors of Spring. That said, I've been thinking of putting together a little Spring-palette inspired gathering. The colors are wonderful to work with and have this great uplifting effect. Who's spirit isn't lifted when looking at a table covered in bright yellow, pink and green goodies? Below is a collection of table settings that have caught my eye for inspiration!

Here are some gentle little suggestions, beautifully photographed by Erin Hanson. I love her darling reminders like "CHECK EXPIRATION" pasted on the fridge," "EAT MORE FIBER" ever so lovingly hung above the toilette, and of course,"CALL YOU FOLKS" which is especially appropriate for this holiday weekend! Good Friday and Happy Easter to you!!
Oh my gracious, I totally have a new favorite designer! Actually, it's a design duo, husband and wife Robert and Cortney, who are best known as the Novogratz. I saw them on HGTV a few nights ago and they blew me away. After looking at their portfolio I was floored. Their spaces are quirky- colorful - practical - fun - elegant - modern - vintage - all with a no-rules approach. My favorite part is the fact that their rooms don't look overly designed or matchy-matchy (which I've never been a fan of.) Rather, the spaces look effortless- while still making a statement about whoever lives there. Definitely my kind of designers. It's a wonder how they do it all while raising seven children!
I love love love surprises. So, I don't think I could ask for a better invitation in the mail than this one found at Oh Happy Day. Using exploding confetti poppers is such an ingenious idea! I can't help but think "Why didn't I think of that!?" I am in the invitation-making business afterall... That's just another reason it's so important to keep your eyes peeled for great ideas like this!
