Tucked Away

A portion of my fabric collection is neatly tucked away in this old, chippey cabinet. 
Don't know which I adore more; the vintage cabinet or colorful fabrics.

Closet Control

Welcome to my closet!
It happens to be one of my favorite parts of my apartment & also the most neglected. 
When you are constantly wearing, then washing/drying & folding... things get a little out of control.
So, here are a few solutions that keep my closet controllable. 

Color code everything; it will help you when your planning your outfits & also when your in a rush to get out the door.  I also try to keep all hangers facing the same way, so I can fit more in the closet. 

 Love me a good basket & bin!  I keep baskets on the top shelf of my closet with belts, hats, & flats.  Then all things that fold or "toss" well {ie. undies, socks, tanks & tees) I keep in retractable bins.  Another thing that I fold in a bin is jeans & printed pants - I am constantly wearing them so I like to keep them in a prime location. 

Can't forget the shoes! The best spot I have for them is either on a empty shelf or the floor of the closet.  I also keep these color coded & organized by style {ie. wedge, heel, boots}.

There you have it! A semi-controlled closet... at least for now. lol!

Toughen Up

I am all about mixing "tough" & "boyish" pieces with simple basics.  
I think it makes for a effortlessly, chic look.  
Here are some examples of "tough" touches you can try mixing into your wardrobe.

Toughen Up

Considering {this} H&M sweater & {these} Zara skinny jeans good basics; think of adding the following to subtlety give tough touches to your wardrobe:

The Friday Find | MAC FIX +

The Friday Find | MAC FIX +

Okay... so this weeks "Friday Find" isn't a brand new find to me.  
But it is just too good not to share & share.
I am seriously obsessed with mac cosmetics, fix +. 
It is a finishing spray made with ingredients such as cucumber & chamomile. 
And you can find me spraying my face with it daily... 
ok, so, sometimes even multiple times a day.
It leaves your skin looking radiant & fresh.  
Go get some of this magic in bottle, here!

Growing Out

 I am currently growing out my bangs.
If you have ever done that you know what I am going through. 
Endless bobby pinning, headaches from head bands & praying that I don't rip my hair out.
Okay, that last part is a little dramatic... but you get my point.
Anyways, here are a few solutions for all of you in the "growing out bangs" club. Good Luck.

Baked Not Fried

I easily confuse "Game Days" for "Good Food Days."
So, on one of those recent "Game Days" we tried out a new Baked Chicken Wing recipe, Asian Style.  They were so YUM!
You'll definitely need to give this recipe a whirl!

Winter Luster

This year I promised myself to slow it down.  
Revel in today. 
Instead of wishing for tomorrow.
So today, I am putting aside my wishes of summer (even if I am freezing my tiny hiney off)
accepting the cold. 
The Winter Luster.
