Styling weapon number one: plants.  All decorators, stylists and interior designers rely on plants to bring life to a space.  We all love them—real or fake—but some can’t manage to keep them alive!  Let me tell you a little secret…there isn’t one rule for keeping plants alive.  Sure, there are several things that are basic knowledge, like water and sunlight, but it also depends on the environment the plant is in.

Only one word comes to my mind when I think about the a typical spring weekend—comfort.  After an entire week of dressing up for work, it’s kind of liberating to be able to kick off my high heels, take off my makeup, and let my hair get messy.  Not to mention that it’s getting hotter by the second here in Nashville!  I swear, this past weekend I thought for sure I was going to melt away.  Luckily, growing up in a tropical island has its perks, like learning how to look cute without feeling like you’re about to pass out from heat exhaustion. 🙂
