BON WEEKEND!

I am kicking off Friday with another "Links to Share" post, where I share with you various musings, how-to's, quotes, antidotes, travel destinations, fashion/styling tips, cocktail recipes, ideas to steal, etc that I come across in my cyber travels. Enjoy and Be Inspired!

1. I haven't worn espadrille in years and these leather platforms ones by Soludos are 
2. This glass-paneled armoire is like a "larger-than-life jewelbox". 
3. In search of a new mascara that defines, darkens, lengthens and thicken lashes? This "miracle mascara" is getting some great reviews.
4. Loving this straw hat from the Filù Hats 2015 collection, hand woven into classic design shapes that are given an original, edgy twist.
5. The book "Letters To The Men I Have Loved" is on my must-read list, writer Mirtha Michelle Castro Marmoi cultivates her passion for poetry through distinct letters and poems to various men whom she considers motivated personal growth and her transition from young adult to womanhood.
6. I have found the perfect tote for browsing farmers market, and those beach lounging sun filled spring days.
7. These agate stone, gold trimmed coasters are the perfect addition to your tableware or they can be a great hostess gift.
8. Curious about "contouring", this guide on how to contour your nose in three steps in a natural real-life finish found here.

THE PERFECT GALLERY WALL

I love the idea of creating a galley wall in your home or office, it's a great way to show off your personal style and artistic taste. Mixing various art styles with prints with paintings, and family photos, magazine covers,  with black & white photography, as well a sepia hued photos, framed and unframed pieces are great to, a mixture of frame styles and even textured frames. Enjoy and Be Inspired!





 My favorite gallery walls are those that incorporate different shapes, various styles of art, they combine colors and black & white; a sort of creative mix match of if you will, mixing photographs, paintings, graphic design, etc. Why limit yourself to just one piece of art especially when you could have a whole wall full of art? 













For ideas on how to create your own gallery wall, visit here, here, here and here.

Places to buy art, visit....

“Not to waste the spring

And join with everyone!
I wandered with a reckless heart
beneath the newborn sun...."
