I wear my nails short now, but, this is no sacrifice for me.  As an artist and designer shorter nails are way more practical for me.  Plus, with all the drama, style and creative nail art goodness available now, lets just say that am quite happy with my options. Yes, long nails are beautiful but short nail are fabulous too!

Adorned DIY Baseball Caps - Game Over!

I love baseball caps!  I really do.  Am a bit picky though, so of course I have my favs. My personal go-to caps are army green, anything military-ish, khaki or camouflage. Luv, luv! But I am also a fan of the black leather cap or a dark brown leather cap.  Why? They are staples when styled with the right outfit.  Adding some sparkle to these caps just takes it over the top for me.

It's casual relaxed swag meets glam.  And this is their adorable baby.

Recently I have been particularly intrigued with appliques on caps.  I don't know how long this phase will last but I literally want to put them on everything especially caps!  Imagine my surprise when I realized I was not the only one! In fact my ladies was on this for a bit!

What can I say, brilliant fashionistas think alike.  This is nothing new though, after all an applique is a short departure from the embroidered hats we see all the time.  The difference is in the fact that an applique put you in the drivers seat creatively, plus it is the same idea but it is fresh and modernized for 2017. You can add a single piece or many appliques.

 You can add some bling or you can add lots of bling!  See what I mean? You decide.  As Julia Roberts said in "Pretty Woman",  "You say when and how much."

I am really feelin this look.  What do you think?

Moving Forward - Guest Post by Shanda Neighbors

I am amazed by the power of yesterday. 
Yesterday gave birth to our regrets.
Yesterday is where we learned to fear.
Yesterday we wasted time on the inconsequential.
Yesterday we missed opportunities.

We denied our abilities, limited our potential and walked away from destiny.
All of this took place during our many, many yesterdays. 

I am inspired by the blessing today. 
Today offers us an array of possibilities. 
We can right a wrong, 
chase a dream, 
change our future, 
and challenge our thinking. 

We can begin a new chapter in our story. 
Today moves us forward on a time scale,
 and presents us the choice to move forward in life. 
We can be more, and do more. 
We can live for something greater. 
Today we can relish the moment and invest in the eternal. 
Yesterday cannot be changed. 
Move on. 
Tomorrow is not promised. 
Move back. 
Today is all we have. 
Move now! 
Resist stagnancy.

Keep moving forward.  

“If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” 
― Martin Luther King Jr.

Tis The Season for Christmas Throw Pillows!

Tis the season to be Jolly, and let me tell you, throw pillows instantly add that festive sparkle that we all enjoy!  It is amazing how something so simple can add so much.  

One of the things I enjoy most about throw pillows is the versatility of design.  From embroidering to hand painted and printed, the sky is the limit.  You can 'DIY" it or buy it, it is up to you.  I personally love to mix both......but then again I am a craft head. :)

honestly I got to browsing these beauties and I could not stop.  Like seriously, everyone was so whimsical, elegant or cute. Each had it's own vibe and style.  There is something for everyone.

And so, if you like me are running out of time with your decorating, trust me, these lovely pillows will totally help you out.  Check them out and envision them in your space....oops, am guessing you already did.  

Happy decorating!


I love this one, what a neat idea. Looks super comfy too.

C'mon! You can NEVER have to much glitter at Christmas time.

So sweet and feminine.

This Sequin Blouse Of Mine - Am Gonna Let it Shine!

I guess by now you can see that I am am partial to off the shoulder pieces especially. Can you blame me?  These are stunning!

  I adore this blouse!  I think I just drooled a little bit.  :)     

One of my favorite looks is to pair a sequin top with jeans, a pencil skirt or shorts, add some heels and bam! It is a look that is fresh, sexy and naughty at the same time. I love the way a sequin top goes so easily from day to night.

 The versatility of these blouses are what draws me to them as well.  You can style them in so many ways.  Plus, they come in so many different styles and fantastic colors.

If you are not brave enough to wear sequins all over, you can choose a more toned down version of the sequin blouse like this.

 Or a look like this!  This is my personal favorite look by the way.  So fab! 

 Well, I really hope that this post inspires you to add some more sparkle to your life.  Trust me, you are going to love it!
