IMG_5483

Now, let’s be honest. Most of us spend the majority of our time at work. I mean, we have to make a living right? But it doesn’t mean we have to go to the office every day and look at those same boring gray cubicle walls and the boring desk necessities. Even if you have an office with a window, you can always Glam Up your office space a bit. Give a nice touch that is professional but shows a bit of personality.  YOUR personality.

Outings and Outfits: Seattle Edition

Of course lately I have A LOT of time on my hands. Either with job searching, networking and enjoying my new surroundings. I LOVE going to Seattle and exploring and just being in the city. I don’t have the luxury of being only 15mins from a major city like I did back in MD (Downtown DC was only 15mins away), but I don’t mind the drive to Seattle. I always make it an all day outing when I go to the city. Since I am new there are tons to do and see. I still have A LOT of things and places to go to and check off my list.

I have been gradually working on my fall and winter wardrobe. I have been able to pick up some very nice essential pieces and some trendy accessories at wonderful prices (I love sales and online promo codes! 🙂 You will see from my look book that my style changes just like the forecast.   I love to layer up for the colder months for a cute and cozy look.

Make A Statement!

Statement necklaces are great for adding that extra pop to any outfit. Lately I have been mad about bold and pretty necklaces. The great thing about them is that you can wear them with a crewneck sweater, a dress and even an oxford shirt. And don’t worry if the necklace seems a bit dressy, that is the fun part! Add a little glam to that plain t-shirt or sweater and trust me you will love how it looks!

Smash Journal

I actually have a K&Company Smash Journal but I haven’t started it yet. I have had it for about a year O_O. I’m rather nervous because I have never created a scrapbook before. I think I will begin in 2014.

But, I do have several other journals and notebooks that I just jot down notes, ideas and my thoughts in. This particular notebook I am sharing with you today I wanted to use for Creative Writing. I want it to be filled with writings of things I love, my thoughts, pictures, drawings, doodles, keepsakes…just about any and everything! That’s what makes it a Smash notebook. 🙂

Here is a page I did last night. I had some small envelopes left over from my Project Management notebook and this was the result.

All I did was gather some scrap colored paper, small envelopes, double sided tape and colored pens and went to work!

Glittered Jars for Make-Up Brushes

So, I saw these cute jars on PINTEREST and I couldn’t wait to give it a try myself. I normally have my make-up brushes all over the place or in a boring plastic bin. These jars add some glitz and glamour to your make-up vanity. You don’t have to just use them as a home for you make-up brushes. You can also store your lip and eyeliners, pens and pencils or just about anything you want!
