I know this is pretty last minute, but I know there are some procrastinators out there just like me! So from one procrastinator to another, here is what I’ve stumbled upon on my quest for quirky gifts for my friends and family! Did I forget to mention that these gifts are all under $60! Gifting on a budget just became less stressful. You’re welcome!
Sam is stylin’ in her checkered scarf because you know she’s all about the latest trends! But on a real note, if you have unwanted/old scarfs, they can be recycled as a really cute collar for your dog. Dump the boring collar and give your dog a mini makeover! They’ll be going on car rides in style! :)
Pantone has revealed the colors of Spring 2015! It’s a fresh take on the pastels, and it’s getting me excited for the season.
Andddddd *Drumroll* The Pantone Color of 2015 is Marsala! It’s a lighter burgundy color and my favorite color! Pantone.com describes the color as “A naturally robust and earthy wine red, Marsala enriches our minds, bodies and souls.” Variations of the shade essentially look just like the wine/burgundy colors that you find all over retailers. Here are some ideas on how you can incorporate the color into your outfits:
Beauty in the basic. Madewell has got the basics down! I appreciate when designers reinvent the basic and turn it into something unique. Is it just me or do you also get excited when you see a retailer’s catalog in your mail? I love drawing inspiration from Madewell’s detailed catalogs! Every outfit is styled with grace and the photography is just so dreamy. I just wanted to quickly share my favorite cold weather clothing pieces from the Fall/Winter collection!
My all-time favorite piece out of this Fall/Winter collection is the black leather jacket (the price makes me cry a little inside, but the quality in the leather is noice). I’ve been dying to buy a new one and so far I can just dream about Madewell’s perfection.
Over the hump and on to the weekend! I am READY to unwind and lay in bed ALL WEEKEND!
Here’s a midweek cheer up! Halfway through another week and it’s a busy one! This cute illustration by Kat is a somewhat accurate depiction of how much my rabbit loves Sam’s tail. He loves to put his face in her tail and Sam hates it and hates him. You can buy this print on Kat’s Society6 page and it also can come in a cushion, tote, blanket, and soooo much more! Buy here!
We all know plaid is one of the most festive prints to wear for the holiday season, but sometimes it can be a bit tricky to style. Head on over to the blog, myCosmeticBag, to see my tips and tricks for stylin’ plaid for Fall (even though it feels like Winter right now).
Currently, I’ve hit an all time low on DIY creativity or any blog posts in general for R&R! Be patient with us and we will get back on track once again!
Happy Halloween! Stay safe tonight, eat lots of candy, and have lots of fun! Here are some of the people, places and #DIYs I’ve been loving this week!
I’ve been in love with Jennet Liaw‘s typography! Just so effortless and simple. You can follow her Instagram and see what new creations she’s I recently purchased a print of my own (see pic below). I love the quote: Stay Humble, Hustle Hard.
I’m in love with Studio DIY’s costume idea…..So if you follow me on Instagram, you should know I love ice cream. Once you see her costume DIY then you’ll understand why I love this so much!
I’m in love with doing flat lays! There’s a satisfaction in finding items and cohesively setting them up in a picture. If you love seeing more of the pictures above then you should definitely follow me on Instagram @ Heychrisslee!
In love with Kat’s new Society6 shop! Get a cute pillow for yourself or as a gift! More nifty gifties on her site! Check em out!
In love with plaid. This one or even this one (and it’s only $6!)! I’d wear both of those!
Beach please! I escaped the city and headed to the beachside for a relaxing day trip. There’s something about the beach at sunset that puts me in a peaceful trance. I bet I could’ve stayed on the beach all night if my stomach didn’t start rumbling for food!
A big thanks to my talented photographer friend, Jennifer, for capturing the day perfectly! Check out her photos at J.Nguyen Photography and like her page!
