Toni & Guy – Hair Meet Wardrobe

Recently I teamed up with Refinery 29 and Toni&Guy for their Hair Meet Wardrobe campaign. They choose a bunch of bloggers model hair styles using their Toni&Guy glamour products. My hairstyle was a low pony that wrapped in the back. I thought it was super cute and easy. For step by step instructions go to Refinery 29 and to buy any of the products used go here.

BOHEMIAN TENTS

Awww tents, what our childhood dreams are made of. I was going through my Boho Life board on Pinterest yesterday and came a few images of tents. This was followed by a mad search for all things tents for the following hour. Sometimes you just get sucked into Pinterest and Tumblr that you forget where you even started. These were some of my favorite images that I came across on my epic boho tent search. I now want an adult tent, in my home, is that weird?

DIY SUCCULENT GARDEN

Succulents are trending. I honestly think I see a succulent pin or blog post at least once a week. I’m jumping on the band wagon and showing you how to make a succulent garden.

First you need to go out and buy your succulents and cacti. Your local garden center should have a variety, if not there are many vendors on Etsy who sell them. When choosing which ones to buy make sure they vary in height, width, texture and color. This is important because you need balance in your mini garden.

For my garden I chose twenty-two succulents and two cacti. When handling cacti make sure you wear needle proof gloves.

Before planting your succulents and cacti, place them on a table and arrange them in the way you want them in the planter. This way you can figure out the best placement for each plant.

Place small rocks on the bottom of your planter. This allows the water to drain. If water cannot drain, the soil becomes too wet and the roots can rot causing your plants to die. Don’t skimp on the rocks, trust me.

Place succulent and cactus soil on top of the stones. This is also an important step because this special soil has higher sand content than regular soil. This helps imitate the plants natural habitat.

Once you have finished planting all of your succulents and cacti place the leftover stones around the plants in clusters. You can also use reindeer moss. I used a combination of both.

 On a Side note, if your garden is full of weed and need to get rid of them I strongly suggest you check out the Best weed whackers available in the market today. Anyway, the materials I used are:

Materials

  • 1 planter (mine is from West Elm)
  • Enough succulents and cacti to fill your planter (varying in size and color)
  • 1 bag of succulent & cacti soil
  • 1 bag of stones
  • 1 bag of reindeer moss
  • 1 pair of needle proof gloves (if using cacti)

 

 

Inspiring Spaces

A neutral color palette but multiple textures gives it depth and interest. Just love this room!

I mean….that wallpaper. It’s so good. I want this in my next apartment.

The pop of pink makes this photo. It gives it life.

Beautiful wall color, it gives off a dark and moody vibe. The leather chair gives it the area warmth and a nice juxtaposition.

Again…amazing wallpaper.

Weathered furniture and accessories = awesome.

Look at this humidifier for children isn’t it just cute and would surely brighten any space! I mean who doesn’t love pandas?

Literary Decor

I’ve always dreamed of having a whole bookcase filled with old classics, unfortunately I just don’t read enough to be able to acquire all those books to really make an impact. All of these rooms are beautifully styled but the books in the background are what make the biggest impact.

The photo below is from Merci, a fun concept store in Paris. That is the little cafe off to the side. Isn’t it so dreamy with all those books lining the walls.

I hope you all have a great new year’s eve!
