This week’s jams are all about empowerment. Hit play, turn up the volume, put on those high heels, and strut your stuff! Show this week who is boss.

MAKEUP (what I can’t live without)

instabraid

I love how hairstyles can become a form of art in themselves, especially with braids making a comeback. They bring so many patterns and texture to the hair and the options are endless. One of my favorite Instagram feeds to follow is @instabraid. They post daily inspiration for braided hairstyles and while I more than likely couldn’t replicate the majority of them, it’s still fun to think I can and sometimes even try. These are just a few of my favorites I pulled from their feed. Which one is your fave?

MAYHEM (weekly recap)

idieh design was recently featured on Borrowed & Bleu.

This is still on my to do list. Hoping to check it off this week.

Looking to add a little spunk to your daily happenings? I have the perfect solution.

I am lucky to call this man mine and we celebrated his birthday all weekend. Happy Birthday, Sweet Cheeks!

Now, it’s time to crank up the jams as everyone deserves to start the week off right with a dance party.

MUSIC (weekly jams)

While I wasn’t able to watch all of the Oscars, I did catch the Oscar for Best Song. It only made sense to make this week’s jams inspired by the Oscars nominated Best Song and Best Score Playlist. Which is your favorite? Let it go, let it go! I’m kind of loving all of them.

MAKEUP (what I can’t live without)

lentilbeanpress

This week I introduce you to Lentil Bean Press. The creator behind these adorable mini canvases is the too-cute-for-words Andrea. She was one of my first stationery clients many years ago and we’ve kept in touch ever since. We are both convinced we would be BFFs if we lived closer to each other. For now, we just cheer each other on from afar and fight over who loves Jimmy Fallon more. (It’s definitely me.) If you haven’t yet, get your butt over to her Etsy shop to stake claim in one of these airstream mini pieces of art. Your heart will be so happy you did.

MAYHEM (weekly recap)

Last week I found a love for braids. Here’s my first attempt, followed by a few more. I think I tried out a total of 4 braided hairstyles last week. Don’t hate.

The Girls with Glasses Show featured my All Her Heart Art Print on their blog on Friday. Go see for yourself!

My pup, Trey, totally steals my heart on a daily basis. I mean, who could say no to the little guy. Isn’t he the sweetest of sweet?!

Oh, yes. I almost forgot! This gem of a website is launching this week. Any guesses on who the client is?

Now, it’s time to crank up the jams as everyone deserves to start the week off right with a dance party.

MUSIC (weekly jams)

The Voice is BACK! But, that’s not the best part. The most exciting thing of all of this is that U-S (pause) H-E-R (pause) R-A (pause) Y-M (pause) O-N-D is back. EEK! Mondays just got a hell of a lot better. This week’s jams is brought to by a few of my faves from the judges themselves (with a bonus from my man). Please note: If you aren’t in the baby making mood, go ahead and skip the last selection.

While fashion and makeup are always fun to talk about, I’ve decided to bring another passion into this weekly feature: ART. It’s always such a place of inspiration and this little gem just happened to cross my path today. Two New York City-based graphic designers created this typographic poster series for a scholarship program. Check out the other half and the inspiration behind the series here.

MAYHEM (weekly recap)

Did you see the sneak peek of a new product I will be launching very, very soon? So excited for this one.

MUSIC (weekly jams)

The BF recently introduced me to Gary Clark, Jr. and I’ve become a big fan. His blues style influenced by jazz, soul, country and even hip hop leave me tapping my foot and noddin’ my head while listening to his smooth beats. And, there’s something about his music that reminds me of my Dad and the music he loved. Listen to my Top 5 selections below and let me know if you are hooked.

While I’m still on my six month hiatus from purchasing clothes, that doesn’t mean I have to resist finding gems I can’t wait to get my hands on. This adorable tee from Goodseeds Apparel found its way on my Instagram and it was love at first sight. While they are known for their quality, organic, fresh and hip threads for your little seeds, they also produce adult tees. And, after a little further research, I found out April (the mastermind behind the brand) actually drew this bear featured on their HUGLIFE tee and it made me love it (and her!) that much more. I love the playfulness of the tee and can’t wait to see what April has up her sleeve in the future. We could all use more hugs in our life.

MAYHEM (weekly recap)

I was (and let’s be honest, still am) over the moon that Tori Spelling had these sweet words to say about idieh design.

While the BF had to work all of Valentine’s Day, I was lucky enough to hang out with this little man. His energy and joy for life is contagious.

Did you see the recap of the “I DO Experience” on the blog last week? If not, make sure to check it out.

Before you get the party started with the jams below, please check out my scholarship entry for Marie Forleo’s B-School, an 8-week business training program. Leave a comment, share and like it to let Marie know she should pick me!

Ban.do: Honestly, the fabulous products speak for themselves. And, I thought it was very fitting to feature all of this fabulousness during the week that is so full of hearts, love and good vibrations. I recently got my hands on the heart hair clip and the adorable heart necklace, but next on my list are these bobby pins that are too good to be true. I mean, you could totally know my mood before even talking to me. If you are feeling super sweet (and want me to sport the “RAD” bobby pin) , yes, I would love ANYTHING in their shop. (he he he)

MAYHEM (weekly recap)

How adorable is the Silver Paper Plane necklace reminding you to let your imagination soar? Or, this Silver Bliss Bar helping you find your perfect balance of happiness? These gems came across my Instagram feed this weekend and I was immediately drawn in. Heart Yourself was founded by Jenny Strebe, author of the popular blog, Confessions of a Hairstylist. When Jenny launched her hair blog in 2012, she wanted to share her passion for hair and inspire other women to feel better about themselves. Jenny witnessed first-hand how women were feeling more confident by learning something as simple as how to style their hair. Jenny decided to extend her passion for building women’s self-esteem in other ways and conceived the idea of “Heart Yourself”, jewelry designs to inspire women to feel their best and have constant reminders that they are beautiful and loved.

Portions of the proceeds from each sale go to Fresh Start Women’s Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping empower women through the services of the Jewell McFarland Lewis-Fresh Start Women’s Resource Center. Go check out this gorgeous jewelry that says so much in the most simplistic way. LOVE.

MAYHEM (weekly recap)

Last week was spent getting caught up from being gone for four days at ALT Summit. I will be sharing more details about what I learned, but in the meantime, here’s one piece of advice that really hit home with me.

If you missed my fashion show while at the conference, you’ll quickly see I have a thing for pink (that I didn’t even realize). Whether it be tights, this dress, or this dress.

Arizona Bride released their Spring/Summer 2014 magazine and idieh design was featured with an invitation suite that uses fearless fonts & playful patterns.
