Organization| Holiday Gift List

Sometimes we have trouble keeping all of the gift ideas for our loved ones fresh in our memory. I created this handy dandy printable list that you can use around the holidays or even throughout the year when you get an idea for someone. And it can help you stick to a budget by seeing exactly where your money is going! Feel free to use this however you desire.

Inspiration| Pantone 2013 Color of the Year!

The much awaited color of the year has been released by Pantone and it is   (Drum-roll please!)..... 

 Coincidentally the the exact color i am wearing today. 
(will post an OOTD but here is a peak)

I personally love this color, especially being from Seattle, "The Emerald City". I love that it brings a little extra attention to my city. No doubt in my mind that Kate Middleton helped inspire this color choice. She has been seen several times wearing the hue, the color itself also just looks very rich, regal and warm. And looks great with any skin tone and hair color. I love seeing a red-head like Christina Hendricks in emerald. This is a great transition from the jewel tone trends from Fall 2012. Most do not realize the effect Pantone has on the entire fashion industry, manufacturers and designers will now begin creating pieces in this color, buyers will look for it specifically, and garment industry printers will buy the specific Pantone ink color for 2013 artwork.
See below some runway & red carpet looks and also where you can get the look for less!

Organization| Girls Guide to Packing

So I have this list that I have used for years that never fails me. If I am just spending one night away or even leaving the country for a few weeks I refer to this to make sure I am not forgetting any essentials. I thought you guys would like to make use of it as well, since there have been a few times that I have made copies for friends of mine to use. 
Feel free to print it out, share it, hang it up, whatever you need to do to make your overnight packing easier! 
Also let me know if you think anything is missing!
