love this picture. The lounge chairs look so decadent with the array of colourful patterns. There is a definite boutique-hotel vibe here...I'm not sure whose pool this is..but if you happen to be reading this (and it happens to be your pool)- pls email me and invite me over!! I'll even bring some fresh lemonade :)

When I was younger I loved playing dress-up. I loved walking past the Disney store with my eyes wide open, seeing which new dresses were on display. I would ask my mom time and time again for early birthday presents, so that I could play princess in the latest and greatest Cinderella dress.
As I got older, I became more interested in Fashion. I would rummage through my moms old clothes hoping to find some vintage treasure. I remember my mom once telling me that my Grandmother took her to New York City (right after becoming engaged to my dad) and bought her a Lanvin dress. My eyes lit up...A vintage Lanvin!? Seriously!? To this day, I still think about what happened to that dress. We think it was either misplaced (or dare I say sold to a consignment store).
Now, when I clean out my closet, I always think about saving my favourite pieces (whether or not they are worn out) because one day, when I have a daughter, she might ask me for a vintage treasure.

Lately, I've been craving colour. Lots and lots of colour. I'm talking blues with fuschia's, greens with pinks and purples with teal-...my new motto: the more colour the better!
Mixing just the right amount of colour in any room adds a certain element of style and personality. Try not too worry too much about what does and does not go. If you want to mix pinks with reds or navy's with black- do so! And if that friend of yours (who always needs to put in her two cents) tells you that the pillows clash with the chair, all you have to do is just smile! What does she know anyways...Right!?
Check out these colourful and bright inspirational photos:

Prints can be expensive. A great way to save money is to find images from the internet and have them printed out on quality paper at any photo store. Another great option is to use photos that you've taken on trips (pictures of streets, cafe's, architecture) and have them edited to black and white.

You see something you love but you feel too guilty spending that kind of money. Trouble is, you can't stop thinking about it. You need..okay..want.. to have it.
Sounds familiar? Thats what I thought. But..what if I told you, you could have your cake and eat it to? That's right. I'm talking about finding the things you love- whether it be furniture, accessories, or clothing for half the price tag.
