Today seemed like an exceptionally long day at work. Not only was the weather bad causing less people to be outside, but our power was out for a good 4 hours. After twiddling my thumbs for the first 3, I decided that I had to go into the back room and find a book of some sort to keep me busy. I came across, French Country Living by Caroline Clifton- Mogg. I was pleasantly surprised after flipping through the pages. There were some fabulous photos, tips, and after reading it, I decided that I want my home to resemble this certain style. I highly recommend picking this book up if you are interested in interior design, or if you need a little inspiration to get you going!

Rain rain, go away…! Okay, how annoying is the weather? Last week we were spoiled by mid 70’s warm, sunny weather, and now, we are bundling up in rain coats and busting out our umbrellas. I am trying my hardest to stay positive and think of all the fun days to come at the beach. What are my favorite beach pieces to bring with me? Of course a cute bikini is at the top of my list. I love to mix and match suits together, that way it feels like you have way more styles than you actually do. You always need to have a beach towel, a cover up that is just as cute as your actual suit, some sandals that are easy to take on and off, a book to help you relax a little more, tanning oil to obviously get a nice glow, sunglasses, and a beach hat to keep your face protected from the sun! Oh yeah, and you need a fabulous beach tote to fit all of these essential beach pieces.
The last few months, Rachel Roy’s garments have been appearing in more and more department stores. She does have some cute things at a very reasonable price. I don’t own any of her garments, but I plan to in the near future. I found a great gold skirt by her on Ebay that looks extremely fun. This type of skirt can be worn during the day with some flats or sandals, and then you can easily change your shoes and top for it to be night appropriate. I love these types of pieces because you get much more use out of them!
