Color Story – Black on Black // Need Supply


I have a little confession to make…I’ve never been a huge fan of black. I’ve always favored colors or metallics and used black mainly in accessories or small accents. Only very recently have I suddenly fallen in love with all-black things out there. Let’s just say I’ve caught the bug big time!! One of my favorite online shops, Need Supply, has an amazing (and often affordable) range of black-on-black merchandise. Check out some faves below. What’s your take on the never-dying all black trend? Boring & overplayed or always fresh & sharp??

Color Story – Radiant Orchid for 2014

Pantone Radiant Orchid for 2014

It’s that time of the year, Lovelies! Pantone has officially announced the color of 2014 – Radiant Orchid! Here is what Pantone’s executive team had to say about its choice: “An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.” What do you think of it? Yay or Nay? I personally think it’s a vivid, happy shade that will flatter all sorts of skin tones & hair colors, and will add a dose of fun to interiors and design elements in general (albeit, maybe in small doses.)

Here are a few of my favorite things in the new “it” shade:Color Story - Pantone Radiant Orchid


Shop it: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.

Color Story – Blues & Bling

Blues & Bling Blues & Bling Manicure

Color Story (formerly known as “Color Inspiration”) is back! I thought I’d start with some of my current favorites – some moody blues & the best shimmery shade ever. You all already know about my love of blue hues, so I’ll move right on to this perfect glittery mix of gold/rose by Jin Soon. It’s part of the company’s current Holiday collection & it’s really, really blingy – just the way I like it!! This color won’t last, so get it while it’s hot for those upcoming Holiday parties. Get em’ here: 1, 2, 3.

XO – have a great weekend, Lovelies!




Weekly Color Inspiration {Pools, Lakes, Parks…}

Green-Blue Essie Manicure by Miss Renaissance

{Lime green – Essie the more the merrier.  Teal – Essie Naughty nautical. Blue – Essie Bouncer, it’s me!}

Pools, Lakes, Picnics in Parks, the Beach…that’s what Summer’s made for! It looks like Essie got the hint, because all three of these fun colors are from the latest collections. I used them to create a loose ombre mix….and I like the result! It’s a perfect Summer mani, right?
