All I want to do these days is lay on the beach or float in the pool or swim in the lake. I mean it’s not that much to ask for, right?! There’s nothing quite like the sound of waves crashing up against the shore or the feel of jumping in a pool on a scorching hot day. It’s summer after all, and isn’t that what this season is all about? It makes perfect sense that I’m about all things blue right now, and I mean every shade of blue. From navy to cobalt to turquoise and teal (yes, those are verging on green, I know), those are the colors I’m gravitating towards at the moment. I pulled together some inspiration above and some products below (that you can easily shop just by clicking each of them) that are sure to suit the needs of any and every blue craving you might have.

Thoughts From My Desk: Slowing Down

I’m not sure if it’s because it’s so damn hot outside (#frizzyhairdontcare) or because summer is always a more laid back time, but I’ve been thinking about ‘slowing down’ a lot recently. And I’m certainly not referring to slowing down when it comes to work and my company. I’m more referring to slowing down in […]
