Spring has sprung and I’m sharing my favorite bright and cheery nail color with you guys. The color is Lounge lover by Essie and is a pretty peachy/coral hue. It’s not overly bright in a tacky way, it’s actually very feminine and pretty. It also looks amazing on all skin tones. Shop Essie polish HERE.
Note: Tart deco and Shop til I drop are very similar to Lounge Lover

I’ve been getting so many questions about my cute little terrarium and thought I’d share all the information with you here. First of all, if you don’t know what a terrarium is, don’t fret. I’m sure you’ve seen them around. A terrarium is an enclosed, indoor garden, usually small and made of glass so that you can see your collection of plants. Before I knew that they were called terrariums, I was searching for ‘Geometric plant holder” and open air vase” on Pinterest and google until I purchased mine from West Elm.
Now that we’ve covered the name, let’s talk about how cute terrariums are and how neat it is to have a living piece of art in your home. I also love how low maintenance they are- I literally mist mine with a spray bottle once a week and nothing more. Making it was quick and easy as well (and I am NOT a crafty person). It took me about 20 minutes total. Pinterest gave me inspiration and I looked up you tube videos on how to layer the terrarium in different ways and chose the look of white rocks on the bottom to match my current gold and neutral theme. Some people incorporate sand as well as tiny figurines. I kept mine more minimal and layered it starting on the bottom with white rocks, then added some dirt from outside, planted succulents in the dirt, then topped it off with some moss. It’s fun to make them your own!
I bought the succulents, white rocks, and moss from Home depot and the actual terrarium is from West Elm. I definitely recommend a terrarium if you want to add a cool piece of living breathing art to your home. They are easy, affordable and super cute!!!

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and finding a gift for your loved one can be a daunting task. So daunting in fact, that you should reward yourself with this dainty cutie from Catbird.

Go on…. treat yourself!

Let’s be honest, some of us are “pink girls” and some of us aren’t. Whether or not pink is your thing, you need pink suede pumps! Let me tell you why. First of all, you can wear pink suede pumps with pretty much anything and they look especially amazing with pants. If you think pink is too girly, you can pair pink pumps with ripped jeans or an all black ensemble to off set the girly vibe and go for more of an edgy look. If you can’t find a shoe to match your outfit, throw on pink….believe it or not, it matches everything. I’m starting to think that pink is a neutral, LOL! Lastly, pink can be LOUD, but the classic silhouette of a pointed toe and the rich suede texture bring the perfect balance to the heel. The bottom line is pink heels look great on everyone, and you need some!
Check out these images below of some looks with pink heels and you’ll get to see for yourself that pink heels are a must. I also will link pink heels for every budget for you to shop as well.(scroll down to shop)

Happy Wednesday everyone 🙂 I hope you’re all having an amazing day filled with joy and laughter. I also hope your day is filled with beautiful scents -seriously. If you follow me on snapchat (jfilkosky1) you know that I’m obsessed with my wax warmer from Target. I always wish you guys could smell what I’m smelling. This wax warmer is EVERYTHING!!! It’s priced under $20 and is a super cute brass design. I love that it’s a plug-in that has a switch as well. So if it’s plugged in a hard to reach outlet, you can just switch it on and off easily instead of bending all the way down to unplug it. The thing I like most about this wax melter, though, is the fact that it has a huge light bulb to melt the wax. I feel like the scents are really amplified with the heat! The light bulb keeps the wax so hot that the scent is strong and I can’t get enough. A lot of warmers have a small votive candle that is somehow supposed to melt wax and scent your home. unfortunately I’ve never had luck with those. I use my wax warmer year round, but especially during the cold months which is why I’m sharing it with you now. Also it would make a great gift for a loved one or even for a co-worker gift exchange.
Wax warmer and wax melts available at Target
Pictured below are the Glade wax melts as well as Home scents brand which is the cheaper store brand and they both smell amazing.
Happy December everybody:) Hopefully you already have a fabulous pair of winter booties, but don’t fret if your ankles are in need- I have found a well made pair that won’t break the bank.

These booties are definitely comfortable and cute! They are currently on sale for $84.90 (reg $99.95) at Nordstrom. Check out the nearly 1500 reviews if you’re undecided.
