It’s no secret by now that I have a serious color crush on coral. It’s the perfect mix between red and orange, touches on the perfect sunset, enhances a summer tan and can take an outfit from so-so to just right.
Slowly but surely I’m incorporating coral into my home décor with accessories, added a refurbished flea market find into a great porch accent table and my Dad built me an AMAZING laundry room riser for the washer & dryer that got the final touch with coral paint! (at first he thought I wanted to paint it blue because he thought, well coral comes from the ocean so it must be … thanks for the laugh Dad!)
Who wants to join me next year in NYC for the National Stationary Show??? As a self-admitted hoarder of notebooks, notepads, greeting cards, etc …. I am beyond envious of those that are able to browse aisle after aisle of the 3 day show.
I follow the likes of Rifle Paper Co (@riflepaperco), Sugar Paper LA (@sugarpaperla), and May Designs (@maydesigns) on my Twitter & Instagram and have just been oogling (yes… I said oogling) their posts of new products!
I thought I’d share a few with you to get you even more on board ….

Ok … so I must apologize in advance if I’m a little M.I.A. as I’ve been attending ALT For Everyone, a three day online bloggers conference. I’m determined to keep learning as much as I can in anything I do. These kind of seminars really set the wheels in motion and reenergize the mind to stay on task towards your ultimate goal!
I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend with family & friends!
As the saying goes, “working from home is meant for some people and not for others.” For me, working from home not only applies to my full-time job at Modish Digital, but also as the creator of Modish & Main. I absolutely love it and do well with it, but not without some ground rules in order to ensure I’m effective.
I have a daily routine that I primarily stick to on any given day. I don’t like to be late to work and I certainly don’t enjoy staying after. Therefore, during my working hours I want to be the most productive .

When I sat down last night to write today’s blog post, I totally got sidetracked by my Bloglovin’ feed and these AMAZING links I came across! (note: you could become addicted in seconds and not accomplish anything for the rest of the day/night)
Pickie.com: Thanks to Hitha On The Go for her latest post on her love of this new website/app that makes shopping even that much better! It’s a personalized shopping magazine fit to all your interests with the inclusion of “like” flags and it’s super-easy to pin the image. (that’s a deal breaker for me usually!)
NicolesClasses.com: if you are into expanding your skillset with Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Photography, etc … this website offers the best classes. BUT … that’s not what got me sidetracked last night. I clicked the link to view their free downloads and was busy downloading amazing design templates for at least 45 minutes to an hour. How great are they to offer these for FREE ?!?! (thank you Alma & Melanie)

Sometimes, there is just a new design or trend that comes out that I virtually become obsessed with and have to do my research on what’s available. Hence…. the hunt for strappy high heel sandals has found it’s mark in the fashion industry and I’m absolutely in love with it.
The key components to this look are the minimal amount of “foot coverage”, the ankle strap and it’s ability to make your leg go on forever!
In this round of Makeup My Day, lets talk about products that amplify your eyes!

A few notes about these products …
