Neon Accents

Neon accents are the easiest way to brighten up any room or outfit. Just one piece makes a big difference ....

Pink is still my favorite color .... and look at that gorgeous floor!

Blue, pink, and yellow.

Highlighter yellow is a bit much, but I like the idea.

Tiniest details make the biggest difference .... 

Neon accents on shoes.

Beige and pink.

White walls and colorful doors.

These pink pieces brighten up this dark room.

Tiny neon accent to change up the classic black and white scheme.

Turn On The Brights

One of my resolutions for this year is to wear more color. I've come to the realization that my wardrobe consists solely of black and grey. A pop of color (even if it's just an accessory or clutch) can make your day brighter!

New Year's Beauty Resolutions

1.) Never go to bed without removing makeup and wash your face early on (I've been told skin starts to rejuvenate itself 10:00 p.m. or earlier). Suggestions for makeup removers herehere, and here. Suggestions for facial cleansers herehere, and here.

2.) Use a moisturizer with SPF. It's so easy! Suggestions herehere, and here.

3.) Shampoo less often to avoid damage and use a deep-conditioning hair treatment once a week. A good dry shampoo suggestion here.

4.) Experiment and take more risks with makeup.

5.) Upgrade your skincare regimen -- add eye cream! I like this guide as to what you should be doing at which age. Affordable eye cream suggestions herehere, and here.

6.) Use firming face & body lotion at a young age to (hopefully) have less wrinkles later! Firming face & body lotion suggestions herehere, and here. Many of these come with a self-tanner which is an added bonus.

7.) You've heard it before, but it's so important: get at least 6-8 hours of beauty sleep a night.
