Did you know tomorrow, June 14th, is Flag Day? To get into the spirit we turned to our friends over at Julep. Sometimes we want to party pretty without looking like a walking American flag. So we dress in a solid, usually reds, whites or blues and then add some patriotic nail art to make a classic Americana look pop. We are loving Julep's fun patriotic nail art inspiration that is perfect for both Flag Day and the 4th of July and for that matter any other patriotic holiday! Take a look at these pictures for ideas on how to pretty your nails for the upcoming holidays. What is even better is that Julep is offering a free Star Spangled 8-piece gift when you join Julep Beauty Box. This includes four patriotic polishes, a hot pink lip gloss, a peony pink blush stick, a bronze eyeliner, and white chevron nail decals. A $122 value FOR FREE! Use the promo code FIREWORKS from now until July 5th! Continue Reading →

And of course, we are always searching for that little something special that will freshen the guest room up and help transform it from fine to fabulous. Continue Reading →
Sometimes we are inspired by our visitors emails, sometimes by FB posts, and sometimes even by articles we find in Yahoo. Today we were inspired by one of our favorite Instagram followers. @PoshSoiree posted the featured ferris wheel centerpiece and the minute we saw it we knew we needed to get our wheels spinning to find the best of the best in carnival, specifically ferris wheel party supplies. We found coordinating invitations, party decor and paper goods and even fun party favors. Continue Reading →
