I love the vintage look and the trucker hat style. I'd definitely be wearing this all throughout the baseball season and beyond!

 Several years ago I started saving some of my all time favorite room decor looks by cutting out magazines and old anthropologie catalogs... this was all before the dawn of my pinterest-ing days.
Later I started this inspiration wall with those cutouts and continued to add to it. Pretty soon it just became part of the decor in my room. The vintage boho flowing curtains, vibrant pops of unexpected color mixed with a very muted shabby palette really inspired me with my own decor style. It also makes a good back drop for my grandmothers antique vinegar bottles, glass knick knacks and some of my own vintage costume pearls and jewelry.  
Now my collection of inspiration has moved to pinterest otherwise I think all my walls would end up being covered. You can find me on pinterest here.

Where do you find your room inspiration? Do you do it old school with magazine cutouts or do you find all your decor inspiration with pinterest?

Body Merry Stretch Mark Cream Review

Thanks to tomoson and body merry I have had the pleasure of trying several products by the Body Merry brand and I have had nothing but positive results! I can honestly say they have high quality products that provide real results. I've used their eye cream, retinol moisturizer, as well as this stretch mark cream and have loved them all. I would purchase them all again and recommend them to anyone in search of a product that will really work as intended.

This cream is so rich and creamy and soaks into your skin leaving a nice soft feeling without being greasy. The ingredients in this work wonders for extremely dry skin and stretch marks. It helped erase small marks and stretch marks, and also helped to even out the skin tone. A small amount works best so this product will last for several months depending on how much you use it. High quality and works as described! You can find this product at

SAFE NATURAL & ORGANIC INGREDIENTS: A bunch of premium natural and organic ingredients make up this formulation - Organic Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Vitamins E + C + B3 + B5, Sunflower Seed Oil, Plant Stem Cells, Organic Hemp Seed Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Raspberry Seed Oil, Avocado Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Organic Gotu Kala, Algae Extract and Japanese Green Tea Leaf Extract - to name just a few. Yes, ingredients that you KNOW are good for you. Need we say more?
  • HEAL, HYDRATE AND NOURISH YOUR SKIN: This cream helps in reducing the appearance of existing scars and marks by increasing the moisture content of the skin, so that it has a more even tone and feels smooth and supple to the touch. It also ensures that the moisture seeps deep into your skin and stays locked in. This improves your skin's elasticity, which in turn helps to prevent new tears and marks from forming. In a nutshell, it works great for prevention as well as reduction!
  • NO HARSH CHEMICALS + MADE IN USA + CRUELTY FREE: The formula does not contain any harsh chemicals such as Parabens, Sulphates or Phthalates. The cream is made in the USA in an FDA registered and GMP compliant facility. It is not tested on animals.
  • MANUFACTURER GUARANTEE: You simply cannot go wrong since Body Merry offers a 90 Day 100% Satisfaction Guarantee on all its products. If you do not like this cream, just contact us and get a full refund. No need to return the bottle.
  • RESULTS FOR ALL: This creamy moisture rich product helps to prevent and diminish the appearance of old and new stretch marks and scars, whatever be the cause! Moms can tackle stretch marks head on by using this cream during and after pregnancy. While stretch marks are most commonly associated with pregnancy, almost all of us (whether its men or women) invariably have some 'problem areas'. This cream is designed for use by both men and women who are looking for a highly effective solution to fight those pesky marks and scars.

  • I received this product complimentary for testing purposes.

    YUMI Asteria Anti Aging Serum

    Thanks to Tomoson I was able to test and review this product.
    This has been one of my favorite products I've received to review as I saw such quick and fast results. I'm in my late 20s and am using products like these as an aging preventative. However lately my skin has been breaking out really bad and the tone has been drab and just not like it used to be.
    I used this product for about 3 days putting it on once before bed each night. I follow with a moisturizer. By the 3rd day I noticed my breakout was practically gone and my skin as a whole, looked so much better. This is a product I would continue to buy and keep in my skin care routine. So even though I don't need anti aging products at my age this product worked great for me. It's great as an all over skin care product and decreases breakouts for any age skin. I didn't notice any sensitivity while using this product either which is very nice! I recommend. You can find this product at

    Influenster Frosty Voxbox

    My first blog of 2015! To start it off I have the Frosty Voxbox courtesy of Influenster! I was excited to get this box as it's so much bigger in size than any vox box I had received before. 
    Inside was a bunch of goodies! 

    Included in mine was: 

    The McCormick thyme came at just the right time! Perfect for all the holiday cooking I'm doing! 
    I also really enjoyed the Candy Cane decaf green tea. I was expecting it to be really minty but it was very nice and light. 
    Fruit vines are much softer than twizzlers and kids love them. 
    Rimmel eye makup remover works great! It can take off black liner and mascara so fast! 
    I've used the Rimmel Scandel eyes Kohl liner before and it has worked just as well as other brands. It glides on smooth and has good staying power.
    I have several NYC makeup products and don't usually buy lipsticks as I'm more of a gloss girl but it's always nice to try new products I wouldn't normally buy! It's got good pigment color.
    I have never tried Boots products but have heard a lot about them. I wish the sample would have been a bit bigger as it's hard to see if I really like a product with just a one use sample but I was still happy to at least try that little bit! 
    I didn't know if I would like the ecotools sleek and shine brush as it has really tough hard bristles that I thought might damage by dry blonde hair but I really liked it and found myself choosing it over all my other combs and brushes. It really detangles well without being overly harsh. I have also used it with my blowdryer on wet hair and it works better than a wide tooth comb! 

    Overall I'm very happy with my frosty voxbox! :) 

    Have you heard of Influenster or are curious in joining to have a chance at your very own voxbox? Head on over to to find out more!
    I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

    Old Factory Candle Gift Set Review

    Thanks to Tomoson and Old Factory candles I was able to test and review their hand poured candle gift set.
    The only hard part was choosing a scent set. They all seemed like they would smell fantastic. I wavered between the 'Happy Holidays' and the '50 Shades' set. I ended up choosing 'Happy Holidays' since it is the holidays and I would be able to share the holiday scents with my mom. They arrived quickly from amazon and were packaged very nicely in a little cardboard box as a set of three. They were smaller than I expected them to be but were just as powerful and slow burning as a larger size candle. The scents married beautifully in one room for a fantastic holiday experience. They also stood their own with only one being lit. My mom really enjoyed these as well. I would recommend this gift set as these would be the perfect size stocking stuffer or as a nice thank you gift after the holidays. I would consider purchasing more as I would absolutely love to try out their other scents!
    These candle gift sets each contain 3 different scented candles. Each candle burns clean and even for 20 hours. Hand-poured in the USA with natural soy wax, self-trimming wicks, and premium fragrance oils. Each gift set is themed around a group of related fragrances. So everyone is sure to find something perfect for every occasion, every room in the house, and all the special someones in your life.
