As a mum, makeup artist, and PIXI creator, my life is bursting at the seams with inspirations & impressions. I live my life by the motto “live love & laugh” and whether I am working or focusing on my family, I try to infuse passion and creativity into everything I do. Here I hope to share with you some of my ideas of all things beautiful.

Summertime Seafoam


As the days get longer with lovely early-summer weather in full swing, I am being drawn more & more to calm, relaxing colours - my obsession right now is seafoam green. It's so soothing but still draws the eye and makes a statement!


I have a passion for packaging design in all of its forms - whether it be for makeup or otherwise. These vintage bottles are just soooo pretty in the perfect seafoam green colour.


I also have love for vintage signs and fonts, so I had to show you this beach resort sign! A classic!






Seafoam green is such a fresh colour if you are planning a room makeover. Love the varying shades of seafoam in the room below!

You can always count on Kate Moss for her unique choice of dresses. This one is so different but pretty!




I am obsessed with the dress below - I need to get at least 5 in different colours. It's just the most comfy thing you can put on when its summer outside! For work, add flat sandals and a cute pedicure. After work, add a shimmery scarf and a cardigan, throw on a pair of chandelier earrings, some teal eye liner and a gloss...you are good to go!

I want to try to wallpaper one of my small hallway nooks outside a bedroom in this design! Wish me luck as I'm one of those "do it all myself" kind of girls :)

A final thought...it seems obvious, but I am always amazed at how much effort it takes to live in the moment!

We cannot change the past, nor can we predict the future.

But what we can do is live in the moment and make it magical!!!

Have a great day & make the most of it!
