Post image for One Bag Goes To New York

I spent all of last weekend in New York, where I’m from. I’ve been in love with the incredible Collected Treasures Satchel for quite some time and I finally got my hands on it, so of course I brought it with me for the weekend! I wanted to share my weekend with you guys in the form of a Blogger Diary, but my bag had other plans. It asked if it could write its own blog post as a guest blogger. I couldn’t say no, so here’s my weekend through the perspective of one fringe-y little bag! Read more »

If there’s a piece of furniture on the side of the road, I’ll be the first one to pull over and see if it can be used (in any possible way) in my apartment. Read more »

Post image for 7 Uplifting Thoughts For Your Day

There are often times I read beautiful words that hit me hard in the heart. It’s like you just need things to be spelled out to you sometimes; like a little guidance of something to help you along. It can be hard to stay true to yourself. You can get caught up in pleasing other people’s worlds.

Day of Women loved this positivity on our Saturday morning, setting people up for a good weekend! It is funny that these messages appear so simple, but we still need to be reminded of them. These are thoughts that should be permanently displayed somehow or somewhere in our lives.

Thanks a lot for this :) I love all the quotes except number 1 :( As "Free People" we do need to think about the future, about our beautiful world and what legacy we want to leave behind us for the next "Free People" coming after us. And if we were to look back to our past and really take time to appreciate and realise all we had and lacked, maybe then our present would not be so worried about our future... Pauline's quote sums it really. I personally like the quote "Everyone's alive but not everyone is living" and I think life is about us as people and not about "you"... nothing will be as beautiful if there were no one else to share it with :) As Snoop Dog would say " It's no fun if the homies can't have none " lol Des bisous xx

Post image for Nail Art DIY: How To Do Marble Nails

At first glance, marble nail art looks like something you’d need to have professionally done. Not true; this is something really easy to do on your own – not to mention it’s really fun. Anything that allows me to play with different colors and get my hands dirty, I’m in. That said, you don’t have to get your hands dirty to do this. Here’s how to do marble nail art! Read more »

Okay, I’m fairly certain this is meant for kids, but I am a huge fan of grown-ups getting in on the fun, too. The link below will lead you to instructions on how to create your own A-frame tent. I’m thinking  few modifications could have something like this ready to go for a trip to the beach or a picnic, too. It’s a little more invoved than a lot of DIYs I’ve seen lately, but with something like a tent, I’d say that’s expected. If you have a spare Saturday (perhaps over a holiday weekend?), give it a try and let us know how it goes. (A Beautiful Mess)

Post image for Dip Dye Hair And Why We Love It!

To coincide with our Wash Shop this week we thought we’d show you some color-washed hairstyles we love lately. Dip dying your hair has been a running trend for quite some time now, and the look has us hooked every time we see it. Dipping strands of your hair into colors gives a magical/fantasy look… like you’ve stepped into a make believe world for a while and had some magic poured on you. Read more »
