Decor Inspiration: Accent Walls

Not sure what it is about them, but I've been obsessed with accent walls lately. I feel like I've been seeing them everywhere and it may be a sign that I need to have one in my house too. However, in all honestly, the one thing that always intimidates me is the intricate pattern and the time needed to complete them. I adore them so much, but I don't know if I would be able to really pull it off to be honest.

So in the meantime, you can join me in my daydreaming and I'll keep you posted on whether this becomes a reality or not :)

A fantastic DIY effort - see how here

I took a look inside my closet the other day, and realized that I had a slight problem. I had somehow managed to fill my entire wardrobe with solids. I had a few prints here and there, but for the most part, it was seriously lacking some texture. Let me say that this may have to do with the fact that I have just moved in with the Mr. and in the process between moving from my apartment, back home to my parents house to now my new abode, I have been able to do some serious clothing dumping. 

You know what I'm talking about, the things that just don't feel the love any more - and so have been weeded out with quickness. Another bonus is that I get to re-do my new closet, so look for a few closet organizations pictures (finally I know) in the near future. 

I went to a boutique and picked up these two printed dresses that I thought would be great for work. I'm not sure how both of them ended up with a grey background ( I may just be slightly obsessed with the color.. just saying)

Product of the Month: Sally Hansen Spa Nightly Foot Repair

This time of year, I always find myself searching the stores for as many moisturizers as I can load up on. I'm pretty good about keeping my skin moisturized during summer, in order to prepare for the inevitable winter parched-ness that occurs.

I picked up the Sally Hansen Nightly Foot Repair about a month ago on a whim, and thought I would try it out.

Well, I can report that I have been pleasantly surprised. What I thought was a typical body butter type of product, has actually turned out to be my go to thing every night. I can't remember the last time I was so consistient about something. I can be pretty fickle to say the least, and tend to switch things up quite often just because. However, this time, I think she's a keeper! Also, the scent is fabulous, the lavender is perfect, it's not too artificial smelling and it disappears fairly quickly.

I think the key is their ingredients: Shea Butter, French Lavender and Tea Tree Oil penetrate and transform dry, rough feet, reclaiming their natural smoothness and soft touch.

What are your favorite winter products? Please share!
