Weekly Inspiration :: Truth and Beauty

"The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity 
in which we are permitted 
to remain children all our lives."
~ Albert Einstein

Finding beauty in everyday things and moments provides us with 
an opportunity to see the world with new eyes each day. 
Allow yourself to give in to that sense of wonder that comes with noticing every detail of your surroundings, of finding mystery and beauty and inspiration in every part of your day.
Look at the world through a child's eyes and find something new and beautiful to love each moment.

Weekly Inspiration :: Strength and Courage

"We gain strength, courage, and confidence
by each experience in which we really stop
to look fear in the face...
we must do that which we think we cannot."
~ Eleanor Roosevelt

In life, the only thing truly stopping us from accomplishing our goals
is fear. Fear of failing, fear of losing, fear of not making it on the first try. While these are all rational thoughts, rather than letting fear shut you down, allow it to become a driving force 
to help you accomplish your dreams. Winning wouldn't be fun if it came easy, and lessons are less easily learned when you get something right the first time. Fear is a reality but it doesnt have to be the only reality.  Find your courage and face the unknown with an open heart and mind. You will accomplish more than you think.

Jenni Kayne Pre-Fall Collection

California based designer Jenni Kayne brought her signature West Coast cool 
to her Pre-Fall 2013 collection with a relaxed, tailored feel mixed with a casual femininity, and bold print. Sophisticated, yet with a tomboy edge, Kayne's Pre-Fall collection was inspired by quirky 90's fashion, and is reminiscent of fashion icons such as Cher Horowitz from the movie "Clueless". 
Silhouettes include oversized office-appropriate blazers and coats, ultra cool cigarette style trousers, and a sexy, sleek bias cut gown. Kayne's use of bright coral and sky blue perfectly represents the changing of the seasons, and the splash of leopard print carries the collection into fall while adding an element of savoir faire. Kayne's signature d'orsay flat completes the collection as a final stamp of relaxed refinement.

Weekly Inspiration :: Primping, Pink, and Miracles

"I believe in manicures. 
I believe in overdressing. 
I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. 
I believe in pink. 
I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls.
 I believe that tomorrow is another day, 
I believe in miracles."
~ Audrey Hepburn 

Nothing is more important than feeling comfortable in our own skin. Embrace your beauty and your femininity. Find an excuse to let your girly side show through every day. Taking time for yourself, be it a manicure or a week long spa trip, allows us to focus back on ourselves so that we can be the best version of ourselves that we possibly can.
This confidence will surely be noticed, and will allow you to perform
your own everyday miracles.

Weekly Inspiration :: Happy 4th of July!

When an American says that he loves his country, 
he means not only that he loves the New England hills, 
the prairies glistening in the sun, 
the wide and rising plains, 
the great mountains, and the sea.  
He means that he loves an inner air, 
an inner light in which freedom lives 
and in which a man can draw the breath of self-respect.  
~Adlai Stevenson

Happy 4th of July!
