Let the countdown to New Year’s begin! It’s been quite an interesting year and as we prepare to usher in a new one, I want to take a moment to say thank you to all who’ve supported my creative endeavors in life, here on the blog as well as on social media.
I re-embarked on my creative journey back in 2015 after going through a pretty difficult period in life and through my challenges and pain that I grew closer to God and listened. It was time to put me first, time to get back to my creative work & time to pursue my purpose! I'm still on this journey and still listening and while I know the holidays can be tough for many I want to encourage you to hang in there. Hang in there even when you feel lost. Get closer to God and listen to your instincts because it’s in these very moments you are able to re-ignite yourself and build your strengths. Every experience is a lesson!Read More
Hello darlings! Today I'm happy to bring another edition of "Style & The Bar Cart." If you're not familiar with this series let me quickly break it down for you.
Style & The Bar Cart is a creative production that combines my passions (style, decor, vintage & DIY) to serve as outfit and occasion inspiration for the modern-vintage girl who loves to entertain in style and prefers cocktails over wine. I've created 3 entries in the series thus far and today I'm elated to bring you a holiday inspired cart just in time for Christmas!
For this Bar Cart I wanted to do something traditional and incorporate one of my favorite holiday prints; Tartan. This print scream classic Christmas but I still wanted to add my own twis to it and that's when I reached out for your opinion. Would it be #TropicalTartan or #TartanWithATwist?
The majority of votes supported #TropicalTartan and I was super happy about that because anything Tropical is right up my alley. I also liked the other theme so I decided to combine the two and bring you tartan with a tropical twist! Clever right?!Read More
This costume should come as no surprise to you! I’ve done many outfit posts, decor projects and DIYs inspired by The Lady In The Tutti Fruitti Hat so it was a no-brainer to create this easy DIY for you.Read More
With the Summer coming to an end and my family visiting, I decided to take a break from work and the blog to enjoy some downtime.
We've been having a lot of fun exploring the city and over the weekend we took my niece to have tea at Ladurée in SoHo. She was super excited and enjoyed every moment of it. Everything was delicious and the hot chocolate was so rich it tasted like we were drinking melted chocolate.Read More
If you listen to even a handful of influencers answer the question "What would you tell your younger self?", usually the response is they'd tell their younger self to slow down, live in the now and know everything will be alright. Yet, when we're "growing up" (I don't believe we should ever stop growing) we're often rushing to do so.
As a child, how many of you dreamt of the day when you could stay up all night, party like there's no tomorrow and not have to answer to your parents? How'd that work out for you? Or how about when you envisioned having the perfect power-job that came with the perfect car/spouse/kids and even a dog or two? Now if you've had even the slightest version of these dreams you also lmao you gave yourself a rigid timeline to get it done.Read More
