Anthropologie Bedding

One of my favorite places to get bedding is Anthropologie. They always have super comfy, bright, welcoming quilts and bedspreads. I thought I would share a few of my favorites with all of you because I have been in a decorating phase lately!

*all of these can be found at Anthropologie stores or at their online store.

Celebrity Laced Backed Dresses

While these dresses may look normal or even plain from a front-on look, they are anything but from behind. The lace detail on the back is amazing. These dresses are classic and extremely fashionable! Plus minimal jewelry is needed!

Style Watch – Kat Graham

I just featured this beauty’s song in my last post and and so now I want to feature her awesome style. 

You may know her from playing one of Elena’s best friends in The Vampire Diaries (I’m addicted to that show now!), but she is an aspiring singer and I think she rocks the red carpet in her futuristic and eclectic ensembles. I like that she dares to do things that are different. It’s refreshing. Plus I think she is gorgeous. See what you think!

Here she describes a little bit of who she is and why she does what she does. Makes me like her even more!

Kat Graham – Put Your Graffiti On Me

I love this girl. She is on The Vampire Diaries and she is also pursuing a music career. This song makes me wanna dance 🙂

You don’t need to drum my heart
You already own it
I take advantage of you
You take advantage of me
Drink up this bottle of yeah
And paint your body on me

Statement Earrings – Jennifer Meyer Bar Earrings and more

Statement Jewelry is so popular right now. I love it because you can wear the most boring outfit and throw on earrings like the ones below or a great necklace and it can transform it! (not that you have to wear it with a boring outfit!) I just think that sometimes jewelry can make or break an outfit.

These first ones are just  a little out of the price range, but I LOVE the look of them, so take a look below to find a bunch more statement earrings to choose from! Hopefully someone will make a copycat of these Jennifer Meyer’s for me!

Leighton Meester looks amazing in ‘That’s my Boy’!

Leighton Meester seriously was the best part of this movie…

Let me start out by saying that I did not pick the movie…it was funny…I laughed…but it was kind of dumb. Come on, it’s an Adam Sandler movie…but I did laugh. It was pretty crude and it is usually one that I would have just rented. However, Leighton was it’s saving grace!

Her outfits in the movie were to die for and I do not think that she has ever looked better (and you all know how much I love her on Gossip Girl!) She is in the best shape ever and I would have killed to have any of the outfits she wore on the show! Here are just a couple that I could find photos of 🙂 Enjoy! P.S. Love her with bangs! I can’t say that about everyone!

I’m pretty sure that this is a Vera Wang dress, but don’t quote me on that! I could not find it anywhere and I can’t remember if she said it in the movie or not! But I think it is gorgeous and rivals her Gossip Girl dress from this season. Anyone else agree? You kind of have to see it moving and in the movie to really see it, but I would DIE for this dress!

DIY Lemon-Lime Sugar Scrub

For my friend Jess’ baby shower, my friend Janell, made this awesome sugar scrub for gifts! It smells so good and you can make it from your kitchen! (so it’s actually 100% edible).

Lemon- Lime Sugar Scrub

1/3 cup virgin coconut oil, melted over low heat.
2 cups sugar
20 drops lime essential oil
3-5 drops lemon essential oil
3 drops orange essential oil
3 drops bergamot essential oil
½ teaspoon green sugar sprinkles, optional (I didn’t use them in the scrub pictured)
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
(May substitute Safflower, Jojoba or Avocado oil.
Or make a mix of a few of these to add up to ½ cup)

Method

  1. Mix all ingredients, except for olive oil, in a large bowl.
  2. Gradually add olive until you reach the desired consistency.
  3. Put in a pretty jar! And add a label.
  4. Scrub on desired area and rinse off with water. (Is especially useful to aid in the sloughing of dead skin…back of arms, hands etc.)
  5. Enjoy the refreshing fragrance of lemon and lime.

I got this recipe from Pinterest, which was from A Delightful Home

Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day to my Dad!

My dad always asked me since I was tiny (and still does) who my best friend was, and my answer was and is him! I miss him so much since I don’t live near my home in California. He is so funny and smart and has taught me so many things. I love you more than infinity!!!
