Faux Fur and Florals

So here at Young Janes  we've figured out the perfect way to transition into spring!  We are anxiously anticipating all the florals we are going to be wearing soon, but why wait ...... instead to keep it winter appropriate pair your floral piece with some fur!  These two elements contrast, and yet compliment each other in the best way possible.   Wouldn't you guys agree?

New Years Resolution : Part 2

So along with finding a new home, I also want to become super crazy organized and have the most chic and lovely space to live!   Honestly who has time to clean when there is so much fun to be had when you're out and about ...... none the less this year I vow to keep my house spic and span!  I'm constantly looking for new and original ideas for organization, especially where my closet is concerned.  In my business the accumulation of way too many clothes and jewels kinda comes with the territory!  So I was wondering if any of you have any brilliant ideas to share with me?/

To a clean new year!

My Fave Movie of all time

This movie has so much meaning for me, I saw it with my husband in Australian at an outdoor cinema with a bottle of wine, under the moonlight ..... it was so lovely and romantic!!  I even ended up walking down the isle to a song from the soundtrack!  I love this movie for so many reasons, it's quirky and whimsical, and makes us believe that life can be more like a fairytale!!  Also the cinematography is amazing, and I want to live in Amelie's lovely appartment!!  Love, love, love ....... c'est l'amour!

i heart clustered pictures on the wall

So since my hubby and I are in house hunting mode, I've been scouring the web for lovely and inspirational photos to decorate our future home!! it's exciting, but the possibilities are endless ...... I don't  know how i'll decide on a final design plan??  any thoughts friends?? what are your favorite decorating styles, I think I'm a combination of eclectic vintage, with a touch of modern simplicity!

New Nail polish Color

It's been such a long time since I painted my nails .... I don't know why I stopped, I guess I just got sick of the maintenance, and how quickly they get chipped : (
But now I realize that it's all worth it, because when I have a wicked color of Nail Polish on my nails, it makes me feel like a million bucks!  It seems to make any outfit instantly more chic!
