My 8x10 black and white childhood Halloween canvas on display

In my opinion, some of the best art is the art you create yourself. Believe it or not, everyone is an artist and if you have a neglected space that needs some life, how about sprucing it up with one of your own personal photos. Whether it is a treasured family photo or a beautiful landscape picture that you took on your last vacation, why not blow it up and make it a masterpiece. 
The kind people at Printcopia, gave me the opportunity to take one of my photos and make it a work of art. I gladly took that opportunity and had one of my favorite childhood Halloween photos turned into a canvas. The website was super easy to use and my order arrived in two days. I love the results and I definitely plan on using their services again. 
At Printcopia you can upload any of your photos, have them blown-up from 8x8 to 24x36, and have them printed on photo paper, canvas, or acrylic. These would make great personal holiday gifts and right now their canvas prints are 25% off with free shipping! 

Want a chance to win a free 8x10 canvas print from Printcopia? It's so easy just follow these steps:

1. Follow my blog.
2. Tell me in the comments section what photo you would get printed if you won the canvas.
 3. "Like" my Facebook Page

So easy, right? Thank you, good luck and I will announce a winner Friday December 7th.

Budget Friendly Over-dyed Rugs

ABC Home and Carpet



Last weekend I was doing some DVR catch up, and saw a beautiful turquoise over-dyed rug on an episode of Home By Novogratz.  I love old vintage rugs, but sometimes they are way to traditional for my taste. Seeing them come to life in these bright, contemporary colors was so invigorating for my Sunday afternoon and I had to research, and research I did. ABC Home & Carpet carries a ton of these beauties, but they would cost me about two months rent, so they are a no go. Upon further searching I came across a really cool store, Loom, located in Australia. I liked these rugs even more than the ABC ones, but their prices were not listed and it is safe to say that shipping from down under costs about three months of rent. I was about to surrender to the fact that these rugs were out of my reach, until Overstock.com came to the rescue. A rainbow of over-dyed 8'x10" rugs for $399.00! They're not vintage like the others, but if they look as good as they do in the pictures, I could care less.

Spring 13' has officially made it to the streets. Well, not quite the streets you and I stroll, but the golden paved roads that only feature super models and super socialites as pedestrians.

Trends To "Fall" In Love With

Embellishments Everywhere
Everything from full length gowns to eyelids are being embellished with studs, rhinestones, appliqu├ęs, and embroidery. Go big with an embellished jacket or add a touch with a floral headband like the ladies at Dolce & Gabbana.

Head to Toe Black
Black is anything but basic with leather and sheer accents. Wear a top with leather sleeves or add a floor length sheer black skirt to your wardrobe.

Metallic Touches
Gold and silver metallic touches instantly bring any outfit to another level.  Perfect full on for holiday parties or add a metallic bag to your everyday wear.  If a gold lame outfit is a bit to much for you, go for a metallic mani to add a little edge.

Although it may not be crispy, cool everywhere (Louisiana doesn't get near frigid till X-mas or later) Fall 2012 is definitely here and oh boy it has been a doozie! Sandy was a real bitch, Halloween was a bust (for me at least) and I'm sure everyone on the planet is ready for this election to be over with. That being said, Fall still will always be the starting point for my favorite time of the year, the holiday season plus my birthday, YAY! With all of these events that lay before us, what is a girl to wear?  Well I made it easy for you with the above pics featuring some exciting trends for this Fall and beyond.
