Photo Gallery Walls

Photo galleries are an easy way to add interest to any room. They can show off a mix of art work, pictures, mirrors and tokens from trips or family keepsakes. Don't be afraid to add things other than pictures- keep it interesting! I personally like when the gallery is asymmetrical; I feel it creates more visual interest in the room but symmetry can also create something special for a room- give it some clean lines and a nice tidy feel.

I love Pouf's! I love they way they look in a room and I just like to say the word Pouf! I know the floor pillows are a little different but I have grouped them in with my love of poufs. Floor pillows do not have the history or quality of the Moroccan poufs- but I love them all the same- they are easier to lounge on and cozy up with. Moroccan poufs tend to be very costly $300-$500. They typically take 4-7 days to make just one. They are made with the highest quality leather and hand stitched to perfection. They are considered an investment piece in your house. Use a pouf as a small table, footrest or extra seating.  They can work with any style from traditional, modern, contemporary or casual. Since their popularity, you can find poufs in almost any color, material or design  and a wide range of prices as well. I prefer the more natural textures and textiles but I also love a pouf in a bright hue to add a little pop of color to an otherwise neutral room. Pouf!

How to wear your Dirty Hair...

Ok so I must admit- I only wash my hair about two times a week. I have really coarse thick hair so the longer I go without washing it the better it looks. Birchbox calls this "second day hair" but for me its more like third or fourth day hair. My second day hair is usually my best and I like to wear it down. So whatever your day might be- you might want to try out this little trick. I tried it this morning and its great!

english mothafucka, do you speak it?

I saw this picture on Pinterest the other day. I love the look- so I decided to recreate it. One thing I realized is that I do not own one single white button down- ridiculous- this should be a staple in any girls closet and will definitely be my next purchase.

This is my recreation- except it actually looked a whole lot better on than whats featured here. My shirt was actually a black and white striped button down and it went perfectly with the Banana Republic skirt. I love my tights! They have a slight chevron pattern to them- makes them a little more interesting than plain black tights but not too wild so that I can wear them to work. I was never a huge fan of the "popped collar" however it worked perfect with this outfit because the scarf made it look not so cocky. I put my hair up in a messy bun and I was out the door- perfect outfit!
