Springtime With Gelaskins Wallpaper

I’m mostly on my phone when I write & then I realized I wanted to do some spring cleaning to clear up space & change the scenery on my phone. I used the Gelaskins app to update my wallpaper on my phone & since it’s springtime, I downloaded some of my favorite spring-inspired artwork. Speaking of spring cleaning, I just wish I can be motivated enough to start the daunting task soon.

The dainty pleated skirt is so pretty paired with a blouse that gives the outfit a punch of color. I like how she used a leather jacket to change up her look as well. Get the look:

  • J. Crew shirt
  • Rachel Roy for Macys jacket
  • J. Crew belt
  • Target pumps
  • Francesca’s Collections clutch
  • Rasbarri necklace

Creative Typography Inspired By Alice’s Adventure In Wonderland

I’m trying to figure out what typography I want to use as my header, so I can use it in my other social channels as well. I’m posting this Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland typography by Neil Leonard as my inspiration because I want my Cerca Trova header to look something like it. I want the header in dark pink font over my turquoise background, but I’m still deciding.  This Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland typography is so pretty to look at & you can see more examples below.
