Huesday: On a Boat

Posted on April 24, 2012 and tagged Stuff I Like with comments

I've been toying with the idea of changing the color scheme on my blog for a while now and this combo of fuscia and peach caught my eye. This week's bright and summery color inspiration reminds me of cottage weekends and trips to the beach. The rest of the photos from this shoot are just as striking, so be sure to check them out.

The Accent Nail

Posted on April 20, 2012 and tagged Stuff I Like, DIY with comments

My new manicure obession? The accent nail! It's a great way to incorporate some nail art or a crazy color into your manicure without doing it on every nail.

In order to get my stripey accent nail, I followed a tutorial on The Beauty Department on how to make your own nail stickers. It was fairly easy to do and I love how it turned out.

Here are a couple other great examples of accent nails.

Camping Trip

Want to know what I've been up to for the past few days? I've been a busy bee making new Pingg designs! If you haven't already seen my gallery on Pingg, please go check it out. I'm most proud of my new Camping Trip designs. I've had this design around for a while, but I gave it a major facelift and now it's one of my faves. It comes in 2 color schemes too!

It would be fun to invite the family to a cottage weekend with this one. A while back, I had someone use this design for their birthday party invites. She was having her party here. It's a trailer park and it's incredible, and this is coming from a city girl. I bet it was a great party.

Huesday: Patio Envy

Posted on April 17, 2012 and tagged Stuff I Like with comments

I love everything about this patio. The seating, the colors, the rug, the plants, the view. Is there a way I can just transport this whole thing onto my patio? This is our first Toronto apartment with outdoor space and there's not even a single chair out there yet. The problem is, it's huge. I know, that's not a legit problem to have, especially in Toronto and I should probably just shut my face. But I don't even know where to start! Also, holy moly outdoor furniture is expensive. Like stupid expensive. Has anyone else noticed that? Excuse me while I stare at this photo a bit longer.
