Turn your home into an Instagram-worthy living space without breaking the bank! Here are some truly inspiring photos and design inspiration as well as the top 2107 Bathroom and Kitchen Trends that are popping up like crazy!
Pattern has always had a place in the home, but a willingness to mix it up and to play with scale in surprising ways is a new twist on a familiar theme. When designing this playful, blue-green kitchen, it’s the pattern play that really steals the show. In the mix is a feather-motif ceiling, a mosaic backsplash peppered with jewel-toned drops, and a quilted, blue-green banquette.
What makes it all work together? The color of the countertop, a rich, taupey-brown with copper flecks, because it is not the loudest piece in the kitchen, it brings it together in a harmonious way.
Pattern play can work in even smaller spaces like bathrooms, too. In this master bath that looks truly handcrafted, the mix is bold in scale. Large floor tiles are juxtaposed with oversized botanicals and are grounded with a calming, soft blue and cream palette on the walls.
Spring is officially here lovelies! Time to break out those lightweight, airy dresses, skirts, maxi dresses, and sexy little numbers you’ve been hiding in the back of your closet all Winter long!
I recently did a Spring cleaning of my closet thanks to Utah hitting some lovely sunny 74-degree weather this last weekend! I started packing up all the winter gear (coats, boots, beanies, ear muffs, and gloves) and have placed them in storage boxes to be saved until the cool weather returns- hopefully not too soon! I’ve excitedly pulled out some of my Summer and warm-weather Spring fashion that has been hiding for the last 4-5 months! Woohoo! It feels like I have a whole new wardrobe again!
Each year in the spring I like to take note of my stock and pick up some fun trends to fit the season well as some essentials that are often over-looked until that moment you absolutely need them! One of these must-have essentials is my Cora Jo Nipple covers. Spring and warm weather ushers in the lightweight dresses and clothing that dares to show some skin. Being small chested, one of my favorite sexy pieces is a low cut number, but a low cut dress or top can bea disastrous adventure without the proper fashion tools in hand!
While many may turn to double sided tape to solve this problem (which does work well as a good backup), I prefer the nipple cover to not only keep me from ever being exposed but to also get rid of the dreaded RT! Thanks, but no thanks. I’d rather keep my headlights under wraps! The nipple cover easily solves that problem, unlike the double sided tape which only works for taping around the edges of your clothing to keep, eh-hem, things from falling out.
My Cora Jo nipple covers also works amazingly for those tops that are just a little too sheer but you don’t want to wear a bra with it! (Again, another area where the double sided tape falls short!)
Nipple covers are super easy to use, just remove the plastic backing (save this to use for storing your nipple covers when not in use) and stick into place. They are small and discreet and super thin so they won’t protrude under clothing, but instead blend in seamlessly. They have a powerful stick so they stay in place amazingly well (be warned if you’re getting hot and sweaty dancing a storm up at the club, they can lose their stickiness a bit when they get wet!)
The silicon nipple covers are extremely comfortable and lightweight, so you don’t even notice they are even there! I find myself checking throughout the night in quick stops to the ladies room, only to see they are still holding on tight, even though I can hardly feel them! They look and feel completely natural! They are also nude colored so they match skin nicely and again aren’t noticeable in case you’re top does move a bit and your nips may otherwise be seen – Good thing you got your Cora Jo Nipple Covers on! Cora Jo nipple covers help you maintain modesty without sacrificing style!
These thin nipple covers are also great quality, well-made, and provide secure placement you can be certain won’t fail. They’re also great for travel as they are small and don’t take up much room at all! They also come in a nice discreet and classy, travel-friendly compact for easy storing or to take the with you on the go!
