Designer Spotlight: Manish Arora

Manish Arora is an Indian designer whose work popped up on my Pinterest feed. It blew me away and sent me down a rabbit hole. I just had to share his garments with you. He teams up with companies like Swarovski (why not?) and embellishes his pieces to absolute perfection stopping right at the cusp of them almost becoming over done. In some pieces, you can definitely see an Indian influence of what looks like Sari-esque fabric. Here are a few of my favorite looks from various collections.

Interior Inspiration: Macrame Plant Hangers

Since moving into my new apartment a few months ago, my goal has been to have as many plants as I think I can manage. It turns out caring for plants is pretty tough – you don’t want to over water, nor do you want to under water. Plus, your watering habits have to change as the seasons do. You can’t forget enough sunlight and so many other variables! And to think it’s just a plant! Imagine what a having a kid must be like!

I’ve been on hunt for creative ways to use my plants to decorate around my apartment and macrame plant hangers were an option I just loved. Today, I am sharing a few with you.

Event Planning: Ghost Chair Seating

If you’ve been reading this blog for some time then you are quite well aware of my obsession with the translucent Louis Ghost Chair. You can read previous posts that I’ve written about this piece here and here. While looking for some wedding inspiration for a graphic design project for a friend I came across the Louis Ghost Chair used in weddings and had to share them with you all!

I just loved the way the chairs were laid out for the reception. It’s like a sea of elegance.

New Year, New Planner

First of all, I’d like to wish you all a very happy New Year. For those of you who made resolutions, I wish you all the determination necessary to stay strong. For those of you who set goals for 2017, I wish you the tenacity to accomplish them.

To help you keep organized, track your goals, jot down your notes and ideas, I decided to share a few of my favorite planners with you today. I found when I started using a planner it helped me be so much more efficient and allowed me to hold myself accountable in regards to my goals and my achievements. I even went so far as to write my to-do lists in my planner, and striking each one off as I completed the task sometimes made me feel like a super girl on my lazy days.
