Backyard Escape

Whimsical is the perfect word to describe this Shadowy Chair. Made out of steel frame and bright blue & green nylon cords, the overly exaggerated curved back of it will add plenty of drama to your backyard. It will also help escape direct sunlight while you are reading your favorite book. You might want to think of yourself as a queen sitting on your very own throne!

This beautiful Blue Glass Moroccan Lantern is a bargain and will produce a mystical cool glow on a hot summer night to help chill you off:

Whether you choose to be cradled in this Isle Retreat Hammock or in the Knotted Melati Hanging Chair a little nap in the fresh air will help you clear your head and let more inspiration in. What a relaxing way of spending free time under a tree branches!

If you prefer a more rustic look, this Adirondack 4' Loveseat could be the one for you. It is made out of Northern White Cedar and is available in bigger size:

Also for your outdoors dining you may choose this simple Log Picnic Table, handmade out of Red Fir:

Or this bright Vinyard Picnic Table:

You can easily entertain with Traditional Tinware without worries of breaking any porcelain or glass. It is very durable and charming:

Wine lovers will enjoy these Acrylic Wine Glasses much better than disposable plastic cups:

The flower petals of the Blacksmith Blossom Chair are not your typical petals. The old-world faucet knobs will blossom no matter what. Made out of aluminum and iron, this piece will add a nice industrial/shabby chic charm to any backyard arrangement:

This next item, the Tudor Garden Bench, reminds me of playgrounds in my childhood. A very nostalgic piece:

One-of-a-kind find like this Old Red High Stool could turn into a nice display for a flower pot:

To keep those fierce mosquitoes away try Badger Anti-Bug Balm. It is Certified Organic and not only it will keep bugs off you, it will moisturize your skin with extra virgin olive oil and beeswax:

Before & After: Bathroom Revival


Shower curtain: Marimekko

Fresh From Fresh

After I discovered Sugar Rosé Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15 I entirely stopped using any other lip products. It gives your lips this natural tint of pink and light sheen. It moisturizes without being sticky or unnaturally glossy. You do not need to re-apply it often, as it continues to condition for hours. Providing SPF 15 UVA/UVB protection it shields your lips from the sun damage. I also love the retro-looking screw-top packaging:

The newest addition to this line is Sugar Plum Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15. I am very excited to try it as it offers a deeper plum tint that can be built with desirable intensity to create a sexy evening look:

Both of these products are free of Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates.
Available at Sephora for $22.50.

Never Say 'Never'

When I was about 7 years old I clearly remember looking at my aunt's grey cardigan and stating to her that I dislike grey color. I told her that I will never-ever wear grey anything. Little did I know...
Not only grey is one of the dominant colors in my wardrobe, I also put it on my nails! I am in love with this particular nail color from Deborah Lippmann. It is very neutral in a fresh hip way. And it is long lasting. But do not disobey the rules! Always use: base coat + two coats of color + top coat. And be patient: beautiful manicure requires plenty of time to dry. So follow the rules and never say 'never’!!!
