Plain & Simple

read the post
While I have been slowly editing down my wardrobe into staple classics with the addition of a few seasonal trends, I love nothing more than turning to the classic white tee + comfortable denim combo. But on occasion you have to look a bit more pulled together, and nothing elevates a simple white tee + denim combo more than a pair of heels.

Minted Art + Mia Loves Pretty + A Giveaway! - CLOSED

Our walls at home are pretty outdated. In fact all we have on the first floor are 13 framed pictures on the big wall above our couch, with photos dating pre-2010 to 2012. A big 12 slot picture frame, with photos dating pre-2010 to 2012. And lastly a 3 slot picture frame from Thailand, with photos dating, you guessed it, pre-2010 to 2012. Upstairs, we have a small hallway mirror which I have taken off the wall to use as a makeup mirror in our office, some very outdated Florentine prints (so outdated I don't even notice them anymore) and then a watercolour print that we bought from paris which is now peeling off the wooden canvas that it has been DIY mounted on. Pretty sad.

While I know our current rental is not our forever home, I think it's about time we change out some of the photos we have hung up, and its also time for a bit of a wall spruce up.

 We have a lot of off-white walls but also a dark navy wall features on one side of the whole apartment. I recently bought THIS hexagon copper mirror set from Ikea based on these inspirational photos that I love, and have been scouring the interwebs for some affordable art prints which could  also help brighten up the common walls around our apartment in a cheerful and pretty , yet clean and uncluttered kind of way.

Low and behold, it was like fate when Minted recently approached me and asked if I was interested in having a gander at the range of products they offer on their website. While I knew they had a beautiful range of wedding stationery and a wonderful range of general stationery, I did not know they had a collection of art.

Yes you read right, I used the word "Bae". I couldn't think of a more current, affectionate and trendy term to describe my current favourite foundation. Why is Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation my favourite?
