LET'S GET STONED

Timelessness with a hint of beautiful imperfection, the contrast of worn stone and nature, rough textures and smooth edges evoking a dramatic effect when it's the back drop for a fashion editorial or evoking a warmth of a summer spent in the Mediterranean with architectural columns, fountains, mantels all of which are romancing the stone. Enjoy and Be Inspired!

Stone love!

VES-PA-RA-DOES, AFFIRMATIONS, SANGRIA & LEVI'S 501s

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!
 This picture definitely does nothing to dull my lust for wanting a Vespa, I can picture myself cruising Santa Monica promenade, or Lake Merritt while sporting my monogrammed helmet, then stopping at Bar Vespa for a fancy cocktail and catching up with my fellow Vespa riders, The Ves-pa-ra-does as in desperadoes. Affirmations, a coastal abode, transitional accessories, Levi's 501s, health and wellness, and the perfect sangria are just a few of today's Links to Share.
1. The weather in Southern Cali calls for light layers and this mixed-print, cotton scarf is the perfect layering piece for spring. 
2. This Laguna Beach architectural oasis has it all, ocean views, wide open space, a wall of glass, lots of natural light, textures of wood planks and cobblestones. A nod to the sky and the bay.
3. 50 positive affirmations for goal-getters found here.
4. Why do you need a pair of expertly tailored Levi's 501s? Here's why.
5. We could all use a easy and healthy energy boost throughout the day and these 10 foods to help you feel more energized found here will help to fight that middle of the day fatigue.
6. I never really gave any thought to purchasing  a beach towel, like most folks I just grabbed any large towel from the linen closet. But visiting The Zoe Report and  "The 6 best beach towels to up your vacation game" has me rethinking my current beach towel of choice and opting for something a bit more glamorous and stylish, see the the 6 that make the Zoe teams list here.
7. This illustration on "The Anatomy of Sangria" gives you detailed steps to making the perfect sangria.
8. Nikia Phoenix creator of the blog "Model Liberation" did an awesome skincare review of DHC's Deep Cleansing Oil and I just had to share it, especially since I've been on the fence on whether of not I should give this facial cleansing oil a try, with ingredients like olive and a bit of rosemary leaf oils. No parabens or fillers, but yes to vitamins and antioxidants., you can see her review here.
9. Loving these handmade suede clutches, they are the perfect stylish go-to to hold your bare necessities, they're on sale here.

HAPPY FRIDAY!
