16 Ways To Rock Orange Makeup This Summer

Orange is one of my favorite colors. It's bright, bold, and fiery just like me. The color orange is usually associated with amusement, the unconventional, extroverts, fire, activity, danger, taste and aroma. No wonder the color is everywhere this season. I'm usually really good at incorporating orange into my wardrobe, but makeup, not so much. So I have compiled 16 different ways to rock orange makeup to get me motivated.

Celebrate Your Individuality

I have always aspired for my blog to celebrate all of the many facets of creative individuality. Over the years people have wondered why I do not showcase one definable style, or items at a particular price point, but for me adhering to such a strict motto or standard of beauty takes all of the fun out of the process of creating. There comes a time when you have to stand up and shout: This is me damn it! 
To borrow words from Ralph Waldo Emerson, " To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment."

The Home Advantage - Chalkboard Trend

School is out, but the chalkboard trend is here to stay. This trend works well if you have children, and is just as delightful if you live in a child-free zone. You can go all out and paint a statement wall with chalkboard paint, or dabble in this trend in small doses by incorporating chalkboard accessories in your home.Since this is such a fun and nostalgic idea I wanted to showcase it in a tongue-in-cheek set. 
So go ahead, write on the walls.

Turban Inspiration For Summer 2014 (11 Faves)

Turbans have been used throughout history as a way to showcase nobility, religion, and tribal affiliations. They are most commonly worn in African and Asian communities, but in the past several decades the headwear has been adopted by fashionistas across the globe. I love to rock a turban with a great tribal print and chunky jewelry. It's also a great way to protect you hair from the harsh summer heat while still looking chic and fabulous.
