Turning Over A New Leaf

p4

The Fall is here and it’s time to turn over a new leaf! What better way to do that this season than to welcome home some new decor from Pottery Barn.

Right now they have some amazing promotions going on with up to 20% off for their Fall Decorating Event, up to 60% for their Warehouse Clearance Event and up to 20% off on their accent tables. Below I’ve handpicked some of my favorite items for you to take a look at and maybe even grab some inspiration from. The theme I was going for was very chic and modern.  I stuck with very minimal colors like white, black and gray. I even threw in some gold and silver accents to spice things up a bit. Click here and get decorating!

D.I.Y “Minimergency” Kit

 

As big as my bags usually are I’m never really equipped enough for a fashion emergency. There are tons of pre-made fashion emergency kits I could get my hands on to just throw in my bag, but I figured why not make it a bit more personal. The thing about buying the “Minimergency”  kits vs doing it yourself is that you can pick and choose what’s important or not to have in your your bag. So what I did for you is create a list of things you could possibly toss in your personalized “Minimergency” kit.

First things first is to purchase a cute little makeup bag to store all your goodies.

 

 

 


Now here’s a list of things of items I think would be essential to every fashion emergency kit, but like I mentioned before you know what’s best for you to carry around.
