VIP Home: Pink Week Pad

Pink Home

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the VIP is turning PINK October 6-10! Whoo hoo!
To kick off VIP Pink Week, I would like take a moment to highlight some perfectly pink home decor on this week’s VIP Home! Can you spy the Susan G. Komen decor piece (and no…not the posters)? *wink* 
P.S. I am totally fan-girling over that pink sofa! If only I had enough space in my apartment for it…Oh, well, I am cool with the Kate Spade “Eat Cake For Breakfast” mug *wink*
Well, fabulouses, while y’all take a look at the decor details, I am off to study for my Biology lecture and lab midterms tomorrow. *fingers crossed* Surely this venti Starbucks will keep me awake *wink*

Fantastic Summer Voyage

Fantastic Summer Voyage: Sandals

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Let your feet take you on a fantastic summer voyage…in style, of course! Whether you are shopping at the plaza or hiking the trails, cute and fun sandals are a total summer must have!

For casual outings, you can never go wrong with Earth tones because they go with everything! Spice it up by looking for sandals with a variety of straps, braids, or textures. If you want to branch out from subtle hues, try colorful sandals or wildly patterned ones. DSW has countless options for all kinds of cute sandals, but click here to see a few of my favorites!

For more adventurous outings, look for durable yet stylist sandals. Brands like Chaco and Teva are built to withstand heavy wearing–plus, they have so many cute options now! Check them all out here and here.
SIDE NOTE: I cannot personally testify to the durability of Teva sandals; however, I can personally testify to the awesome durability of Chaco sandals. Long story short–I have had the same pair of Chaco sandals for over three years, and they are still in fabulous condition! My green Chacos have survived three moves to three different states (it’s a miracle I did not lose one along the way because I have managed to lose at least one shoe each time we move *wink*), countless road trips all over the South/Southeast, and various other fun (and sometimes muddy and dangerous) adventures. Overall, I have been highly impressed with the brand’s overall performance–and now, I am a Chaco girl *wink* Big kudos to Chaco for making awesome, cute, comfortable and durable sandals! *high five* Now…I recently purchased a new pair of  Chaco sandals for summer (not only are they incredibly lighter than my old ones, but they are also rainbow–YES, RAINBOW) from Mahoney’s Outfitters in Johnson City, Tennessee. I will keep y’all updated on how they hold up to my random journeys *wink*

Now, I am off to finish painting my bathroom–stay tuned to VIP Home on Monday to find out what color it will be. Yay!

VIP Home: Art Deco Apartment Inspiration

Necklace: BluKat Design by Heather O'Cain
Necklace: BluKat Design by Heather O’Cain

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to VIP Home!

This week on VIP Home, I created a handy dandy Polyvore board of  my fabulous apartment decor ideas. Oh…I do not know what I would do without Polyvore! It makes life so much easier *wink*
Apartment Inspiration: Art Deco
My new apartment was built in 1920, and my desire is to incorporate the 1920s Miami Art Deco style throughout. Finding said decor on a tight budget will be tricky…but I am overly excited about adventuring for items similar to the ones on this Polyvore board. If I am lucky…maybe I can find one of those awesome vintage Felix [cat] clocks! *wink*
