If I had to choose a favorite social media platform, it would have to be Instagram. As a visual person, it’s so fun to scroll through and be inspired by traveling, food and home design from both your real friends and virtual friends.

This perfect piece of green architecture was captured by Bonnie Tsang, one of my favorite people to follow on Instagram. It got me dreaming about every shade of green…

Sometimes it’s cool street style that catches my eye, other times it’s just a great photograph…. And sometimes, it’s both.

One thing I love to do is make multiple outfits with one piece. It’s fun to get creative and it’s also fun to make my wardrobe seem larger than it is. Especially right now since I’m not allowed to buy clothes, only home things (self-imposed)…

Jaime Tollas put together these outfits and I put together this little graphic to prove how easy it is to make multiple outfits with just one stylish shirtdress. Head over to Nest Studio Blog for all the links…

This post is purely to remind you how much I like pink. Strange, because I’m a low-maintenance tom-boy, but I do love me some pink.

How can you not, look at these images from Style Snooper Dan  and The Paper Mulberry….

And don’t get me started on white and black….. Also, who would’ve thought hangers could look cute in a living room?

Found a fun shop with really cool style. Too bad all my time and money is going into my apartment lately. Can’t complain though, it’s really coming along. It may or may not be featured on one of the top design blogs in the near future….. Just sayin’

I Am Yuri / PrettyHauteMess

As soon as I’m done with my apartment, and my budget can be shared elsewhere I will be buying a few pieces from I Am Yuri and the first thing on my list is the skirt in the top image. I must have it so I can dress like Leandra Medine from The Man Repeller.

In a way, life is like Pinterest. All the fun is in finding patterns….

Are you like me? Don’t you have fun scrolling through Pinterest and fining recurring design elements in fashion, interiors, photography, etc? It’s a fun game for us visual people.  Enjoy…..

If you’re visiting my blog for the first time and have never seen my social platforms, then you wouldn’t know that several months ago I chopped my hair off. I’ve done it once before in college, but never thought I would do it again. Well, I did. And I’m never going back!

Garance Doré recently chopped her hair off and made a really fun video. Admittedly, after I saw it I made this silly little video featuring my super chic bed head.

If you’re thinking about doing it, check out my “Shorty” board on Pinterest for some cool inspiration…
