Hello March!

It's my Birthday Month! I am going to celebrate all month of course, so you've been warned. Green is my favorite color so it is only proper to celebrate with all things green! I will avoid at all cost the color Kelly green, for I am not Irish. (no shade)

My birthday month always starts off with my birthday style guide! It's all things Tropical and Unicorns, oh yeah. Take a look and get inspired. Let the party begin!


Dinner and a Movie

We all love to stay home and watch movies, right! I love to take time to find some of my favorite snacks and munchies, cozy up on the sofa and binge watch movies. Wayfair has asked me a couple of bloggers to put together our very own Dinner and Movie idea board! I'm loving this challenge. This was so much fun!

My ideal Dinner and a Movie is all about binge watching Wes Anderson movies on a Saturday afternoon. I would start with getting my space comfy with some floor pillows and bring out some fun bowls for snacking. Popcorn is a must. I never watch movies without popcorn. I make it on the stove, add butter and salt. 

My movie binge starts with The Royal Tenenbaums then moves straight to the Grand Budapest Hotel. I love to snack, so I imagine having some cheese fondue with handmade pretzels. I would add some veggies to the make my dinner complete. To wash it all down, Red Sangria is totally on the menu. Sangria adds just enough sweet to my Saturday meal. 

Dinner and a Movie is all what you make it. Start planning yours today. Create a theme, set up your space, grab your favorite snacks and don't forget the perfect beverage! 


Pantone has a new color for 2017, Greenery 15-0343. I am so excited about this color for 2017. Green is totally my favorite color! It's like Pantone decided to give me my own color to love and drool over. All I can say is thank you Pantone! I promise to love Greenery and make her look awesome at all times.

Pantone also describes Greenery as "a refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings."

New Year, New beginnings! I am dreaming up some fun things for 2017. Get ready people!

Holiday Cheer

I love this time of the year! Holiday cards have been arriving with from family and friends all month. Each card has it's on style that reflect the senders. You can always tell without looking at the names who the card is from. It warms my heart to receive holidays which inspired my choice of cards to send every year.

This year I wanted to bring some color and fun to my holiday cards. I found these colorful Holiday from Minted that were so cute and full of Holiday Cheer. I've partnered with Minted to showcase their lovely holiday cards this season. They have lots to choose from with several options for colors, fonts, and card sizes.

This Christmas tree card was design by Olivia Kanaley. I chose a flat card with a custom design on the back. I also had Minted address my envelopes for me, woohoo! Do you see those cutie bird stamps I found at the post office?! Nailed it!

The creative designer in me always wants to add color and some Dayle spark to my cards. There are a couple ways to do that. Use washi tape and markers on cards. Grab some coordinating pattern paper to create envelop liners to add a pop of color. Use stamps, glitter or even colored pencils to give your holiday cards some added happiness.

These cards really fit my personality and I know my family and friends will love these. Have fun and enjoy this season of giving.

Happy Holidays!
