DIY Marbled Easter Eggs

Easter is just around the corner, which means it's time to do one of my favorite Easter activities- decorating Easter eggs! This year, I took a non-traditional approach to decorating eggs. Still sticking with Easter pastel colors, these marble patterned eggs are a fun update to the classic dyed Easter eggs. They are super easy to make and will have all of your Easter dinner guests in awe, guessing how you made them! Simply follow these steps....

- Hard-boiled eggs
- Nail Polish (I used pink, blue, teal and purple)
- Styrofoam bowls- one for each color
- Stirring Sticks- one for each color (I used chopsticks)
- Rubber gloves
Step 1. After boiling the eggs, fill a bowl with room temperature water. Take a bottle of nail polish and slowly poor a few drops of polish into the boil.

Step 2. Using a chopstick, stir the nail polish around to create a marbled design.
Step 3. Wearing the rubber gloves, carefully drop an egg into the bowl and turn it over a few times.
 Step 4. Remove the egg from the bowl and place it on a stand to dry. I made a stand out of a sheet of foam and straight pins (see below).
Repeat these steps, using a different bowl, and a different stirring stick for each color! Check out the pictures below to see the finished product and then go try it for yourself!

Make Yourself a Home

Kate Spade has done it once again! To celebrate their new line of home products, Kate Spade has opened a pop-up shop in Soho, Manhattan, dedicated solely to the collection. As you walk through a mock entry way, bedroom, living room, dining room, and even a kitchen, the interior of the pop-up shop makes shoppers feel right at home. The collection includes everything from living room furniture, to bedding, dining room settings, china, and kitchenware. Each piece exudes Kate Spade's signature sophisticated, chic charm, with a little bit of quirkiness. Whether you opt for the bright aqua sofa, or a set of playful dish towels, there is a little something for everyone to make themselves a home! You can view the entire collection online, but if you're in the city, I strongly encourage you to stop by the pop-up shop to see it for yourself (open through May)!

Spring Has Sprung!

Last week in NYC, we finally got a taste of spring! With mid-70 degree weather, I couldn't resist the chance to wear some new spring clothes.  An eyelet blouse (a trend I am loving right now!), sandals, and my favorite pink purse made for the perfect outfit to welcome the spring weather. I took a stroll through Bryant Park to take advantage of the warm, sunny day, as did many other New Yorkers! The park was packed with people dying to get a taste of the fresh spring air. I think it's safe to say that everyone is hoping this weather is here to stay!
