Spring 2011: Hot Trends!

Hey Beautiful Friends! I cannot believe that just yesterday we had a huge downpour of sleet and snow. It's almost the end of March and I was really starting to get excited with warmer weather. Spring is around the corner... but when it will actually arrive, I've yet to know.

There are 3 trends that I love right now for spring 2011.

The first is the feather earring. I saw many people with the "feather hair extension" but I realized that I'd rather have an earring that I could take out easily. If anyone knows great places to find more of these...let me know!!

The second trend is the hair accessory.  That can be a large flower, a bow, a decorative clip. I just love the added touch of something to the hair.

Third hot trend is the bright and unexpected color combinations! Anything bright, anything bold , anything risky. :)

:) Happy soon to be Spring!! 

Love- your Lauren

Luciana's Pink Swarovski Crystal Ball Studded Ring

Speaking of Jewelry, my husband got me this bracelet I had been eyeing and surprised me with it along with earrings and flowers and a really nice hand written note on our 1 year anniversary. (I absolutely love elephants..I think they are so fascinating and when I was younger I used to collect everything and anything with elephants on them).














Is there such thing as a recipe book???  Not BOX but BOOK that you can fill in yourself with recipe's ???  There must be something like that, but for some reason I have been unable to find one. I wanted a book that I could fill with recipies that I get from friends, internet etc..

So, I got creative and made one! I bought a notebook I liked, stickers and tabs for the sides! I think it's cute... I love anything colorful!

Hope you all have a wonderful day! Next post will be about an amazing new soap brand I discovered and an awesome giveaway! :)
