Discover the latest fashion fall trends with Macy's Fashion Front Row events | Live Colorful

One of the nicest things about living in California, is the weather. It’s never too cold, and almost never too hot. That gives me the opportunity to play with a lot of layers all year round, especially during fall.

Besides being able to use boots and jackets free of guilt, I love the smells and colors that nature inspires during this season. It’s something warm, cozy but really stylish.

I’m excited to find out more about the newest fall fashion trends this year. Macy’s is hosting this amazing Fashion Front Row shopping party with music, fun and the latest looks from our favorite designers. There will be events all over the country!

I’ll be at Macy’s Valley Fair (Santa Clara, CA) this Saturday September 17th at 2:00 pm, to enjoy the shopping party and catch a fashion presentation hosted by the founder of Girl With Cures, Tanesha Awasthi, and style expert Caroline Rooney. I read that there is going to be a DIY necklace station! If you live near by, come and say hello 🙂 I’ll be sharing more about it through Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

I can’t wait to find out more about the trends related to colors and prints for this season. I keep wanting to add fresh earthy colored pieces to my wardrobe.

RSVP to your local Macy’s store to enjoy the shopping party. Find a party near you here. The events are free!

Handmade in Mexico: Summer Essentials

Posted by

If you follow us on Instagram, you may already have noticed that we are obsessed with Mexican handcrafts and designs. There is something unique about them that catches our attention. We believe that the vibrant colors and prints are one of the main reasons, but we also think that the charisma, the richness of the culture and the warmth of the people make this special connection even stronger.

So every time we have an opportunity to travel through Mexico, we love talking with the artisans about their inspiration and techniques. We really enjoy getting to know more about the process, and we enjoy buying these handmade in mexico crafts and designs as well. Every time we come back home with new handmade goodies, and share them on Instagram or Facebook, we receive emails asking about where they can get them. So we decided to start looking for online stores with products we believe that you guys will love. And also because we know they will fill your day with joy!

How to Add More Color to Your Life

How to add more color to your life | Live Colorful

We love seeing colors we love, it is such an invigorating and happy feeling.  That’s why it’s so important to fill our soul with the positive energy that colors bring into out lives and surround our home and daily routine with them.

In case you are thinking that painting your house in a bold color or dying your hair pastel pink is too crazy for you, here are five simple, fun and not too risky ways to add color to your life:

1. Wear fun socks

Wearing a pair of fun socks is an intimate and personal way to add more color into your life. Just by knowing that they are there, you will feel unique and adventurous, and you can always hide them under your jeans and shoes.

2. Add new shades to your wardrobe

You don’t have to wear extremely colorful outfits all the time. You can start by buying one or two pieces on a color you love and you don’t normally wear. You can mix these accent colors with basic and neutral colored pieces. Just that pop of color will cheer up your day and will make you feel confident and special.

You can use a service like stitchfix.com (affiliate link) which make the process easier and fun. The clothing and accessories from Stitch Fix are hand-selected by a personal stylist and delivered to your own door. We had received so many pieces we have never picked at the store but that look amazing! We really love this service.

3. Accessorize your favorite space with color

Sometimes a little detail in you favorite space at home like a yellow hand towel in your kitchen, a bright pink flower pot in the living room or a pair of turquoise cushions over your bed can change the way you approach your mornings. That touch of color that stands out fill your home with energy and make you feel happy and ready to conquer the world.

4. Dare to paint your nails with unusual colors

This is one of my favorite ways to incorporate color into my life since it’s easy and inexpensive. The best thing is that with a manicure and pedicure you are spoiling yourself while you are adding something fun to your life.

5. The power of a coloring book

Besides making you feel relaxed and creative, coloring also stimulates your brain, senses and improve your attention to detail and coordination. Check out this article: Coloring Books: 5 Benefits for Adults. 

You can even use you favorite coloring pages as art like we did in this DIY project: How to make art with your favorite coloring pages.
