Trendspotting: Busy Bee

May 17, 2011

Honeybees may not be the most pleasant little insects, but they sure do make cute accessories… especially when there isn’t a stinger involved! Bees and honey seem to be trending in both the wedding and fashion world. Whether it be a literal interpretation or a more general one by just using color, it’s popular! So give your friends something to buzz about and make a beeline for Spring’s sweetest trend.

Color Coded

Color Coded: Storm

May 16, 2011

I was at the beach this week, and while some of our days were sunny, there were definitely some gray clouds that loomed overhead. While stormy skies might not be the best for beach-going, the blue-gray color of the clouds and the water is simply gorgeous. It can be so minimalistic and when treated as a neutral instead of brown or black, this stormy color can be really striking!

Piqued My Pinterest: Desert Chic

May 12, 2011

Hello my lovely readers! I know posts from me have been sparse these days – I’ve been spending every waking moment working on TONS of new goodies for Betsywhite Stationery which I’m dying to share with you but we’re not quite ready yet (hopefully mid-summer).

Despite the crazy workload, the one obsession I absolutely must make time for every day is Pinterest. I’m a total pin head. At least you can enjoy the fruits of my obsession… aren’t these images lovely?!
