Sun and sand go hand in hand, and we’ve been long awaiting an escape to the shore.
One of my favorite things is to take something old and make it new again. I found these three vintage trays for $2 a piece at a local thrift store, and immediately knew they could be something more. I had flowers pressing in coffee table books at home, and decided that they’d be the perfect thing to breath new life into my new vintage finds.
The DIY is easy as can be. Below are the steps to achieve the result, but get creative with it. Pick a flower that you especially love, paint the trays your favorite color, or include inspirational sayings on your pieces of brown craft paper.

Shaking a shower of blossoms from the shrubs,
And bearing on their fragrance; and he brings
Music of birds, and rustling of young boughs,
And sound of swaying branches, and the voice
Of distant waterfalls. All the green herbs
Are stirring in his breath; a thousand flowers,
By the road-side and the borders of the brook.
As summer draws near, and the weather warms up, we find ourselves drawn to the outside world. There is something about lounging in the park under your favorite tree that gives you that zen feeling that makes you feel at one with nature. Our Green Leaves of Summer Eyeliner evokes that feeling with its rich green color, inspired by our love of outdoors, we picked this color right off the tree.
While taking a leisurely stroll, we plucked some of greenest leaves we could find from our favorite outdoor friends. The color palette we used to create this beautiful natural color comes straight from the leaves themselves.
Immerse yourself in the beauty of Mother Earth with our most natural color yet. With it’s lovely matte finish, Green Leaves of Summer will be the perfect finishing touch for anyone seeking to finish off a subtle summertime look.
To create this look, we paired our Green Leaves of Summer Mineral Eyeliner with two of our newest shadows. We brushed the light and brightening Good Looking over the lid, and dabbled some Na Na Hey Hey shadow near the tear duct. We then swiped Green Leaves of Summer right above the upper lash line to give a slight pop of color.
A fresh olive green with matte finish, like summer leaves but perfect for any season.

I’ve always wanted to get into weaving, but the sky high prices of a just a simple loom really hindered my interest. One day, after receiving a fresh pair of shoes, it occurred to me, “I can just use the box to make a loom…genius!” And so, this DIY was born.
What You Need:
Lid from a cardboard box
Yarn for your weaving
Here's a few behind the scenes photos from our latest shoot. We can't get enough of the dreamy, romantic feel of the set for our Spring color collection. Rustic Texas countryside, blush tones and rose petals have us longing for warm weather and blooming buds.
