These gorgeous paintings by David Mramor are keeping me inspired this gloomy Thursday afternoon. I truly love mixed media work. He starts with a printed canvas and then adds layers of acrylic, oil, pencil, marker... even spray paint.
See more of his amazing work here.

I have to admit, when I saw this photo, it was love at first sight. First sight, I tell ya! I've been a big fan of Gaby's shop, The Vault Jewels, for awhile now, but these little beauties have me swooning. They're just so colorful, fun and affordable.... I knew I had to snag one (or two) for myself! :)
So, I thought it would be fun to put an outfit together inspired by my most recent purchase. My style is pretty laid back and casual... I like to be comfortable, and still stylish. So this is what I came up with....
What do you think? What's your favorite piece?
Make sure you check out Gaby's shop! It's loaded with lots of eye candy!
I LOVE DARK CHOCOLATE.
I LOVE LAZY DAYS.
I LOVE ART.
I LOVE MY SWEETHEART.
I LOVE MY POOCH.
I LOVE YUMMY SMELLING CANDLES.
I LOVE HANDWRITTEN NOTES.
I LOVE MY FAITH.
I LOVE THAT I'M FOLLOWING MY DREAMS.
AND THE LIST GOES ON AND ON...
What are you LOVING today?

Indeed we should.
We get so wrapped up in everything else, that we have a tendency to forget what's important. Sometimes we just have to pause for a moment, take a deep breath and think of how truly blessed we are.
Have a wonderful Monday! xo

Now, most of these items are out of my price range, but hey, a girl can dream right?! :)
I've been crushing on gold a lot lately! Since we're moving soon, I definitely want to incorporate some gold accents in the new place... it instantly adds interest (and glamour!) to any room. Seriously, how gorg is that table... and that flatware?!
Are you loving gold as much as I am?
Happy almost Friday!! :)

Ok, so I'm pretty much obsessed with this shop! I love everything. EVERYTHING!
Bark Decor is a cute little shop founded Sara Barrett and her sister Shana, that offers a variety of clothing, accessories, and houseware items. Besides their whimsical, but still edgy and modern designs, I love how eco-concious they are. Their products are handmade, they print with eco-friendly inks and solvents and they use recycled paper and packaging!
You can see more of their products here.

Happy Monday, friends! What did you think of the Super Bowl?
I really didn't care for the halftime show. I know Madonna might be a "legend" and all, but I wasn't a fan.... I liked most of the commercials and more importantly, the Patriots LOST!! :) I am and always will be Bills fan, but I was definitely hoping for a Giants win! So, I thought it was only appropriate that I celebrate with a Giants themed outfit. :)
What do you think of the items I picked? Would you wear it?
Did you watch the Super Bowl? Did you like the halftime show?
Hope you all have a great start to your week! xo
Happy, Happy Friday!!
I'm really loving that it's almost the weekend. I have been counting down the days until Saturday, which is reserved for a work meeting (and cupcakes from Swirls!) with Kristen.

2/ Refinery 29's Guide to Working from Home.

5/ How awesome (and cute!) is this mug?
6/ Sephora and Pantone are collaborating on a makeup line (launching in March)!
7/ I’m totally in love with this packaging.
8/ Such a great little reminder.

Got any plans for the weekend? Whatever you are up to, I hope it's great!!

The super sweet Janette of Janette the Jongleur is hosting the "Blogscars" (blogging Oscars) and I've been NOMINATED for BEST ARTISTIC DIRECTION! I'm so honored and amazed that Janette even thought to nominate me!
I would love (and really appreciate) your vote! I'm up against some stiff competition, so if you think I deserve to win, hop on over and vote for Creative Index! :)
Whoa. It’s February already!? So, a new month means new goals!
Here's a few things I'd like to accomplish in the upcoming weeks...
- Try and disconnect from the computer at a reasonable hour.
- Keep my email inbox in check. It's getting pretty ridiculous.
- Work-out 1-2 times a week. Baby steps people!
- Drink less coffee. This one's going to be a toughie.
- Save money instead of spend money!!
Let’s hear about your goals for February... I’d love to know what things you'll be aiming for this month! And can someone please tell me where January went?!
PS: I realize that photo really has nothing to do with this post... I just thought it was pretty! ;)
