Butter London

Spring is around the corner and so are brilliantly-painted nails. I love the 3Free line from Butter London, which derives its name from the fact that their lacquers are free of Formaldehyde, toluene, and DBP - chemicals that should not be coming into contact with our skin. I'm liking their Matte Finish top coat and Teddy Boy nail color.

Silk, Silk, Silk

Today I got to visit one of my favorite boutiques: Zou Zou Boutique in Orlando, FL. On my trip back home (Orlando) I decided to stop in and see what new items they have. Wonderful pieces from Parker, Yumi Kim, and Ella Moss filled the racks. I felt energized and inspired upon entering this fashion-lover's haven and realized once again how much I really do love unique design. Some pieces that really caught my eye were rich jewel-tone silks with lace embellishments, and gorgeous silk prints in classic silhouettes.

Makeup & Marilyn

I love the classic beauty of Marilyn Monroe and the look of bold lips. Here's a great picture from an old ad.

And the color I've been trying to rock:)

3191 Mornings

2 friends - 3,191 miles apart - take a picture where they live every morning for 365 days, and out comes this amazing picture book! They also have one for evenings: 3191 Evenings

Spring Dresses

I'm wishing Spring was here so I could throw on a simple dress and heels. Motel Rocks has some adorable picks!

I love this picture, it makes me want to go bike riding!

Snowed In.

I'm still getting used to the winter here in KS. The snow has been unrelenting and being a FL girl it's definitely a different experience.

For The Love of Baking

So, I've been really into baking for some reason lately. Cakes, muffins, cupcakes...and my twice-failed angel food cake made with Splenda. I have yet to get it to rise all the way and have been left with short cake.  Trying to be good with my sugar intake, I've been using Splenda instead of sugar but, after reading up a bit, it is the culprit for not allowing my cake to rise! 

Here is an adorable site that has all the baking-lover's decorating, baking, and even packaging supplies she could need: Layer Cake Shop.  From the many printed baking cups to cake ruffles(what!?) you'll be surprised what you can do to your baked masterpiece!
I'm thinking of getting the Happy Homemaker Cupcake Kit :)

Cherry Blossoms
One of the most beautiful flowers, in my opinion.

So excited to announce the opening of my art shop! It's full of gouache original paintings and digital prints that'll be sure to light up your day:) What's more exciting is the Love Birds painting sold the first day!!
