Jewelry and Cross Body Bag from Stella and Dot
Wedged Heels from Express

Fashion Friday - Skull Obsessed


Happy August y'all!!! 
And of course, happy Fashion Friday!

How is your summer going girls? 

I am vacationing in France right now, which you may have seen on my Instagram. This afternoon, I will be on-the-go again as I will travel to the center of France to visit my family: great uncles and aunts, cousins and family friends I haven't seen in years... I cannot wait for all the fun and catching up!!
So make sure to follow me here, I will be posting pictures of my adventures. ;)

A couple weeks ago, I found this skull shirt at Express. I've had a little skull obsession for years, but sometimes I feel uncomfortable wearing clothes or jewelry with them on it. I always think they may look a little too harsh or that people may think I'm morbid or something like that! 
But with a touch of gold, I thought this shirt was very much down my alley and just couldn't resist getting it. 

Skinny Jeans are from Marshalls last summer - Bracelets, Rings, Cuffs, Earrings and Cross Body Bag/Clutch form Stella and Dot - Shoes from Lord and Taylor - Necklace from Sheinside

What's you take on skulls? Yes or No?

A new blog design

Just like human beings, our blogs grow, change, and take new dimensions. 
After blogging for 1.5 years with my own self-made template and blog header, I needed Life In Positudiness to get a new face, and its design and colors to be more reflective of my personality. 


A couple months ago, after researching on the Internet and particularly Etsy for some good web designs that inspired me, I found Color Crush Creative.  The designer, Ce Ce, specializes in simple designs with pop of colors.  I only saw a couple of her designs and I knew right away that it was what I needed.  When I contacted her, she informed me that she was still in the process of building her shop, therefore quite busy, but she accepted to work with me anyways.  We hit it off pretty quickly; she is such a sweet person!!

I loved working with Ce Ce on this.  She was very professional in the way she handled the process.  I felt comfortable emailing back and forth with her because I realized that she really wanted me to be happy with my new design.

The Useful and Easy Stuff - The Deck Part 3


The deck has been a long process to share with you. A little coffee table I had no real purpose in the house for inspired me to re-do our deck, make it in a cozy space that we would enjoy spending our summers on. After painting the coffee table, I added some wheels for practicality and then it was time to style up the space!
I went shopping around the house first and found colorful pillows that could work and then went to Ikea to get an outdoor rug and some lanterns.

Fashion Friday - Mirrored Lace


You guys...
By now, all of you who've been following me should know what my favorite saying is...
"Better late than never"!

I'm honestly not comfortable saying this, but my life is hectic, weird schedules, no structure at all, and it affects me and what I love to do a lot.  And let's be honest, when you can't do what you love the way you intend to, it becomes a bit depressing.

But I'm trying to the best of my abilities, and whenever I can't blog, I'm at least active on Instagram to be able to stay connected with you and share my latest faves + trendy tips!  I love to stay in touch with the community of IGers.  It truly is an amazing platform!

Anyways, of course I had a little something planned for you today, but with my upcoming travel plans to France {can't wait to spend time home with my parents, brother, friends and family <3}, I didn't get a chance to post earlier.

Fashion Friday - Paris Je T'aime


I recently made my first purchase in Sheinside.com, and I love what I got.
Part of my order was this really cute shirt Paris Je T'Aime. I usually don't wear short sleeves t-shirts, but I'm in love with this one. The fabric is light weight, super soft and the sleeves are wide and very comfortable.

The Useful and Easy Stuff - The deck part 2

I finally get around to writing about what I did next for my deck makeover.  Super over due post, since this project took place about a month ago, but better late than never!

The coffee table is a pretty heavy piece and since I want to be able to bring it in and out of the house by myself, I installed wheels on the bottom.

Easy Peasy Cheerful Notebook

Yes, I'll admit it, I'm a fan of Tinkerbell!!
But sometimes, you just have to grow up and turn the page.

I needed a notepad to leave in my car to take notes.  I don't know about you, but when I go away or when I drive, I have all these thoughts coming in mind (food to buy, things to do...), and I usually forget them very quickly. I wanted to have something on hands best to write these lists right away (not while driving obviously).

I found this old small notebook in the bottom of my drawer and was about to throw it out because of the childish cover.  But I hate throwing things out...!!  Especially when it was never used.

Fashion Friday ~ Feeling Fresh.


One day 'til Summer! Can you believe it? Where did Spring go?! I keep thinking it was just yesterday that we had those huge amounts of snow...

In this look, I am wearing my beloved Fresh. crop top from SETATA.  Funny fact, I would not usually dare wearing a top shorter than my belly button, but this one is a different story.  I guess I feel kind of connected to the top after attending the Jersey Shore Fashion Show and staying by the designer's side!
The skirt I wear is an old black and white high waisted dress.  The white top was not to my tastes anymore, so I removed it and kept the fun ruffle skirt.
The shoes are Adolfo Dominguez, and jewelry stella & dot.

The Useful & Easy Stuff ~ The Deck

Summer is just around the corner! This year I want to be able to fully enjoy the deck with my Husband and family.  So, big project going on: a deck makeover.

I was going to build palettes benches for our deck with some palettes we grabbed last summer, but unfortunately, we stupidly kept them outside all year, standing in the grass. And well... when I tried getting these palettes, it wasn't all pretty.  Yes, wood will deteriorate if you leave it out without any finish as a protective coat, but also bugs will start lovin' that wood!! Eeew... I can't stand bugs...

Since the palettes idea was out, I shopped the house!  And once again decided to give our little coffee table a new purpose.


You have probably seen this table in a previous post when I organized a closet into what I called my craft sanctuary.
Well, with the sunny days coming, I thought this shall become an outside bench!

My Organized Nook day ~ A Dream Vanity

I hope everyone had a nice weekend and Father's day! Here in Jersey, it was a gorgeous Sunday. Perfect weather.
Thank you to all of you who participated in the See U Now Link Party yesterday.  And if you haven't yet, add your links, it's never too late! ;)

***********

Organizing a house, a room, an area can change your life for the best.  But, making the right changes can be difficult without any plans.  
Before doing anything, I like to think about what my needs are, and what I would like the new design of the space to look like. 
Polyvore is an amazing tool not only for fashion, but also to create mood boards and plan home designs.

I often dream of the perfect vanity.  A beautiful table, comfortable stool and a big fancy mirror where I could spend {hours} prettifying myself! 
When One Kings Lane, a company that sales top-brand, vintage and designer items at discounted prices for about 72 hours only,  contacted me to know if I wanted to participate in their Reflect Your Style campaign, I was thrilled!  

They sent me six mirrors to chose from and create a gorgeous vanity design to go with it.

Here are five of the six
These are very nice mirrors. All so different one from another, each telling a story. My favorite one however is the Vevey Mirror {featured in my mood board}.
Its bold gold frame inspired me to go with a vintage and classy design.



This elegant half moon table with the limed wash finish reminds me of France.  I love this smooth semi circle shape, which is also in the mirror from One Kings Lane, and the long slim legs.
The Vevey Mirror makes this piece of furniture stand out.
I added a pop of color to my design with this purple vanity stool. Doesn't it look so comfy?!

This vanity would make me a really happy girl!! 
Make sure to check out all the mirrors from One Kings Lane.  They have so many different styles, one for every taste.

What's a piece of furniture or special space you've always dreamed of for yourself?

Fashion Friday ~ SETATA Fashion Show

This past Wednesday, I had the amazing opportunity to join SETATA, an up and coming clothing brand, at the Jersey Shore Fashion Show. 
It was really great experience!
My first fashion show, my first time seeing the brand in person, my first time driving by myself down the shore!! Oh yeah! Not only did this day satisfy my fashion crave, it also gave me a sense of freedom ;)

Fashion Friday ~ Kendra's Miami Fashion Challenge

Today is a very special Fashion Friday.

I am taking part in "Kendra's Miami Fashion Challenge" which means that I will share with you six different outfits I created in Polyvore for the occasion.
{I don't know where I've been all these years, but I just discovered and started using this app, it's AWESOME!!!! I had so much fun getting creative and putting together the best outfits I could.}

About the challenge:

Kendra Thornton, a renowned travel expert who makes regular appearance on stations like ABC, CBS, FOX, CW and has been a special guest at The Tyra Banks show, The Nate Show and more, asked me if I could come up with some fashionable outfitsfor her upcoming getaway.  She and her husband are finally taking time for just the two of them {sorry kids, you're staying home}, and are going on a relaxing and romantic escape in the "capital" of the Sunshine State, wonderful Miami, FL!

Delano Hotel Pool Side {via}
Can it get more romantic that this?!
Anywho... As excited as I am about this project, I'm better of letting you read the sweet and beautiful Kendra herself!!

Fashion Friday ~ A Chilly Spring Day Outfit



A couple weeks ago, when my family was visiting, we went to Lewes, DE to take the ferry from Delaware to New Jersey.  While we waited for our time to embark on the long voyage (just kidding, it's only an hour ride or so, but very beautiful!! We saw dolphins!), we visited the cute little town of Lewes.  The trees where finally blooming, the air was pure and brisk, and this little walk in the park just became an impromptu photo shoot.

Fashion Friday ~ Fashion Fav's

There are a few fashion bloggers that I have been following for a while.  I love their styles which are all very unique to their personalities.  It fascinates me to look at their looks and learn more about them through their blogs.

May Flowers and Bright Cobalt


Hey everyone!!

My parents and grand-mother were visiting from France and stayed with us for the past 2 weeks.  We had such a wonderful time going to different areas (Pennsylvania, Atlantic City, Washington DC) and enjoying being with each other that I took some time off from my weekly Fashion Friday...

But, I am back!  And I hope you will like this casual springy look.

This is the first Fashion Friday I am doing since I got my hair cut!!!  My fabulous friend Jill who attended the Arrojo Cosmetology School in NYC as a hair and make-up artist asked me to be her model for her graduation day two weeks ago.  And well... we decided to chop off about 8in, and do a reddish-brownish glaze on my "virgin" hair!!  It was such a big change, but so much fun and I love it!  ~Thanks J.F., love you girlfriend! <3~

Here in Jersey, the weather has been kind of uncertain, so lately I have been loving my ankle boots!

Fashion Friday ~ Black and White Sparkles


Today's Fashion Friday is all about Black and White and Sparkles!!

I've always had such a hard time dressing up for a formal dinner, party or whatnot, but now that I have my Stella and Dot accessories, it's all fun and ease. The jewelry definitely changes my outfits, and I really love this dress!!!  
The Captain's Dinner on our cruise 2 months ago was the perfect night to wear it.  Forgive the not-so-glamorous background, Hubby sweetly agreed to do a lil photoshoot before we headed out, so we were in our cabin! 

Hope you like it, 
And Happy TGIF!!!!

Meal Planning for Pretty Well Organized

Last month, I wrote a blog post for Pretty Well Organized about my take on meal planning.

I like to take the time to plan what are meals will be for the week so that not only we are organized and don't waste time thinking about what to make, but also to save money.  We only buy what we'll eat and won't end up throwing out expired foods!


Head over to Wendy's blog to read more about my meal planning ways

Gold and Glitters for Flowers

On Valentine's Day, my Hubby came home with some pretty flowers.  Unfortunately, I never had a nice enough vase to put flowers in, so I finally decided to do something about it.

There was this old vase I had kept from an old neighbor. It wasn't so pretty and scratched in several places, but it was made out of white glass and I liked the long shape...

A Brand New Office for This Girl ~ A Work In Process

So you know... as always, I just need love to rearrange my spaces.  This time, it was all about my office!  ~ Actually, it often is all about my office ;) ~ 
As I mentioned last week when I gave my desktop calendar a facelift, with everything happening in this office, it was beginning to get unpractical.

A Winter Blues Pick Me Up

These past weeks have been super frigid here in NJ ~and in a lot of states for that matter~ and well, we all know that long dreary days can affect our moods...  To remediate to the Winter Blues, I needed a little color pick me up in my office and some organization.

After the little facelift I gave my desktop calendar, I continued with the blues and added some gold touches.  Because lately, I've just been all about gold!  Who hasn't anyways?!  Gold is the new black.

Gold is almost everywhere in that room.  I even made gold hexagons decals for the walls ;)

A Calendar Facelift

New office

These past few days, I have been rearranging, redesigning, resetting my office.  I spend a lot of time in that room and wanted it to be more spacious.  Lately, it had become very unpractical, uninspirational, and cluttered.

I am loving the new airy layout ~photos coming up next week~, and now I am working on bringing some colors to this room!

I had this desktop dry erase calendar for a while, but as you can see, I hadn't used it since September.

Back to Basics - a Project

Life In Positudiness 

Blogiversary ~ Back to Basics


During this 30 Day Countdown to Life In Positudiness’s first blog anniversary, let’s get “Back to Basics”.  

When I first started my blog, I envisioned it filled with the important things that make me happy and would help me keep a positive attitude about life.  Don’t we all need little reminders once in a while?  
Organization ideas, craft projects, recipes, travel pictures and more are all big ideas that daily play into that concept.

For the next 30 days, I invite you all to reflect and share what a Life Filled with Positive Attitude means to you.  No matter how big or small it may be, what makes you smile, what makes you enjoy life that much better?  
When you’re feeling down or overwhelmed, look for something around you that will cheer you up?!  

By taking pictures and sharing them, you are making memories.  You are proving yourself and showing your friends that anything is possible.  

Blogiversary - a 30 Day Countdown and a Giveaway

In one month today ~February 12~ Life In Positudiness will turn one!  This calls for a celebration!!
Here in the blogosphere, we call that a Blogiversary, and I want to use this special moment to share a few things with my readers ;)

Many Thanks 

I want to say a big thanks to all of you who have been reading, following and providing such great support.  Know that your encouragement feeds my inspiration to write. 

Thank you cards made by LifeInPositudiness

What's Up with Me and LIP?

I have a lot to share with you guys, I don't even know where to start!

For a blogger with organization as the main niche, I feel like the biggest contradiction!  I'm a total living irony.  {I just had to say both words because, you know, sometimes I just don't know how to say things, and I'm not sure my point gets across...  That's the sad part of being a French girl living in the US...}
Anyways, my point is: I've been so UN-organized lately...

I have good reasons for this though, and it's all about exciting things that I am planning, starting, attending and keeping on building.

New Year, New Horizon

Happy New Year Dear Friends!!!!

I hope you all had fabulous holidays. 

My husband and I spent Christmas by my family, in France, this year.  We had a great week.  
Sorry for the blurry pic...
I was enjoying a nice cup of Vin Chaud (warm wine, not sure what it's called in English) at the Christmas Market in my hometown, Annecy France.

Today, I had the privilege to be introduced by Wendy, the creator and author of Pretty Well Organized, as a contributor to her blog for 2014!
Along with three other talented ladies, Niki from Hello Stripes, Angela from Blue i Style and Lisa from Dwell Delightfully, I will be sharing my way on organizing different part of my house and life!
