new obsession – lulu & georgia

we just bought our first home so i’ve been crazy busy with the move, unpacking and general excitement! home decor shopping and browsing has become like a second job at this point. i can’t even explain how much i love reading home design blogs, visiting shops, flipping through magazines and scrolling through pinterest for hours. one of the biggest challenges is FOCUSING and actually thinking of overall themes/schemes for my rooms! i’m really looking for great inspiration to get organized with all of the mostly empty¬†rooms waiting to be filled ūüôā

i came across lulu & georgia¬†recently…and i’m so obsessed! they have furniture, wall decor, rugs and more. their rugs…amazing. i’m not exaggerating. there are so many beautiful rug choices that is terribly difficult to choose!! but everything is so inspirational! i also love their instagram¬†page – it is overflowing with gorgeous pictures and fun ideas. they also have a blog that is great!

here are some of my favorite finds on the fabulous lulu & georgia:

viola rug 

LG Viola Rug

how lovely is this wool rug? it is so chic with an old-fashioned charm. i think this is the perfect rug for a bedroom! it brings such a wonderful pop of color without being overkill. i LOVE!

gage lamp

LG Gage Lamp

although it has an industrial look to it, i can’t help but find this lamp to be charming. i can picture this hanging over an island in the kitchen or two lamps strung above a long, wooden dining table surrounded by upholstered chairs. industrial can be a little daunting, but it really can work well in a cozy space as well!

pillows, pillows, pillows

LG Ayla Pillow

don’t even get me started on their pillow collection!! there are endless options…and they’re all amazing. this pink and red pillow is called ayla. the colors are so feminine but i love the edginess of the pattern.

LG Breaking Wave Pillow

i love the scalloped look and the happy green color in this one! it is called breaking wave, referencing the seaside, but i think this can fit into many different decor styles very easily. if you’re not into the green, this pillow comes in a few other colors.

drake mirror

LG Drake Mirror

this is such a fun mirror that can be used in many spaces within your home. i love the size and the distressed wood look!

mexican serape

LG Serape

i wanted to include this serape because although it is draped over a bed in the image, i think this would be the perfect picnic blanket for the summer! for $25, how cute and handy is this for summer nights? of course, it can always be used as a throw like in the picture above. i love the splash of colors and the versatility of the piece.

have you ever heard of lulu & georgia? what are some of your top picks on their site?

new favorite: midi skirt

one of my favorite looks for spring is the midi skirt! i never used to be a fan but it’s popping up so much lately that i’ve grown to love it!

i love the pleated look because it’s so light and delicate. a pointy heel seems to really complement a midi skirt and tie everything together. the pointy heel¬†also seems to elongate your¬†legs and add a sexy edge to the overall look.

using a bright color with a simple, very fitted top looks fab as well. it really shows off your figure well!

monochrome is a fun way to wear a midi skirt. i absolutely love love love the crop top with the skirt. i am not usually a huge fan of crop tops but somehow when paired with a midi skirt, i can’t help but find it to be classy.¬†

would you rock a midi skirt? do you think pairing it with a crop top is too much?

the scoop – tory burch beauty

tory burch is by far one of the most highly regarded fashion designers in our time. so many of her pieces are lovely – i’m especially a fan of her clutches and reva flats. it is so exciting she has now launched an extensive beauty line: tory burch beauty. the line includes a beautiful fragrance, cosmetics, brushes and even bath/body products. here are some of my top beauty picks in the luxurious line:

tory burch perfume Р$110 

TB perfume

a light, feminine scent perfect for spring and summer. if you don’t want to splurge for $110, you can always buy the $25 rollerball.

tory burch lip color Р$32 Рshade: just like heaven 

TB lipstick just like fuschia

i love this sheer fuchsia shade for a pop of color in the springtime. there are plenty of colors to choose from and it applies on very smoothly.

tory burch face brush Р$48 

TB face brush

such a super soft and pretty face brush! having great makeup brushes is very important. i can’t speak to its longevity, but it feels great on your skin.

hello april! here are my favorites…

it was a toasty 55 degrees today!!!! i took a long walk in the late afternoon to enjoy¬†the sunshine –¬†i did not have to wear my snow boots for the first time in months. i even got a manicure with a bright shade from essie to celebrate the breakthrough in the new england weather…¬†

ole caliente Рessie 

i love this orange-red color. it reminds me of papayas, strawberry daiquiris and inspires me to go on a picnic. it exudes an excitement for springtime.

baublebar x nordstrom collab hits stores!

are you guys familiar with baublebar? it is by far one of my favorite places to order gorgeous, unique, trendy jewelry. they seriously have some of the most adorable pieces you can find anywhere. the prices range, but you can find some great stuff at a moderate cost. you also collect “vault points” which add up and are applied to your next orders to get $ off, which is awesome if you are a frequent shopper.

i definitely recommend following baublebar on social media because they are always hosting amazing giveaways – instagram, twitter, facebook, and they even have a fun blog called “the post”.

baublebar already has a fabulous collab with anthropologie¬†(my obsession with anthro is almost unhealthy…) and you can check it out here! however, i am beyond¬†excited for their latest partnership with nordstrom!!! here are a few of my favorite pieces in this beautiful line:
