A Week of Outfits (Zoe)

Hi!

In my opinion, nothing tells you more about a person’s style than his or her everyday outfits. Sure, a party dress can really show some flair, but it’s the things that we automatically grab for in the mornings as we are sleep deprived that we depend on to look stylish and presentable, without being boring — or downright ugly.

So I wanted to show you what I wear everyday, in hopes that you can get to know me a little better. This includes finding creative ways to interpret my dress code/uniform, styling fun workout gear and taking advantage of the free reign over my outfits I have on the weekend.

DIY Tumblr Inspired Wall Decor

IMG_7935 2

Hi!

When spring break came to an end, I found myself once again spending countless hours sitting at my desk. My desk was basically a white, blank space and it really wasn’t a happy or inviting place to work. This weekend, I made all of these decorations with items i already had in my house, inspired by the mint and pink color scheme I have been seeing on tumblr frequently, along with brown and gold accents.

Here are the three projects I did to make this space my own.

1) Printable Triangle Banner

You Will Need:

Glue

Scissors

Paper

A Printer

String/Ribbon

Pennant Printable Document (below)

PennantTemplateBlueAndPink

First, I would like to say this template is NOT mine. I simply resized it and added the colors. Credits for the template go to Flairy Tales.

The first thing you will need to do is download this document and print out the desired number of triangles (for reference, the base of each triangle is about the size of a trident gum pack)

Then assemble the banner as shown below:

BeFunky Collage

2) Tumblr Collage

You will need:

Non-Corrugated Cardboard

mintandpinkpics (the images that i used for my collage) along with any other pictures you would like

Glue

This DIY is super simple, all you have to do is cut out the pictures and glue it on non corrugated cardboard (the thin cardboard that is used for notebooks and other household items). Of course you can decorate it with washi tape or stickers, but I went for a more minimalistic look.

3) Post-It Weekly Calendar

This last DIY is really simple again. Just cut your mint/blue post its so only the sticky part is left and then stick the white post its under them (cut them in half for the weekends) like this:

Then fill in with a bright pink pen!

Lastly, for the center, I took some pastel magnets and put some chalk in a magnetic container since it is naturally pastel.

My Spa Bucket List

Traveling is my favorite hobby but if the place I’m staying has a spa, it makes the vacation twice as good. Although many of my dream spa vacations are waaay too expensive and confusing to coordinate, I still put together a list of my top three dream spa getaways. These luxurious hotels are all placed in scenic locations and along with spa activities, are also accompanied with cultural and unique recreations.

Song Saa Private Island — Cambodia

Okay, a stay on this island looks ABSOLUTELY INSANE. I completely recommend checking out this website because it looks absolutely beautiful. The secluded island is perfect for a spa getaway and tropical experience. The website offers activities such as walks through the rainforest, kayaking through the mangroves, snorkeling with stunning tropical fish, and many more! And of course, yoga, massages, facials and other spa experiences are offered.

Mandarin Oriental Hotel — Bodrum

Located on the Bodrum peninsula, this hotel is placed in a scenic location. The highly rated spa is extremely large and spread out over 27,000 square meters.The spa is open and widespread, so the visitors can look out over the gorgeous Aegean Sea.

The Peninsula Hotels — Paris

The Peninsula Hotel Paris has been one of my dream hotels for a long time. Like the hotel itself, the spa is insanely large and luxurious. It includes a pool, jacuzzis, treatment rooms, and a relaxation room. It also focuses on soothing interior design and decoration.
