{ COLOR CRUSH } A Sunshiny Yellow

I wasn’t always a big fan of bright/bold colors. It might have been a Northern thing. Dark colors like black, gray and brown were pretty much my color of choice while living in the North East. However, since moving South, that slowly began to change. One of the colors that I am drawn to lately…

Whatever your preference, color is always around us. One can find a splash of color anywhere. It can be bold and bright or soft and muted. I love color! However,…

{ Life is } Golden…Really, It Is

This is the weekend of the Golden Globe Awards. Red Carpet. Awards. Fashion. Parties. All of these things are synonymous with this event. Gold doesn’t have to be gaudy or brassy.
