Whilst living in Barcelona, I saw mini cacti being sold all over La Rambla, and I quickly developed a love for our prickly friends. They make any space feel so airy and light. There are so many types and colors to play around with, as well as some neat display options. My personal favorites are minimalist wall art pieces, terrariums that either sit on display or even hang from the ceiling, and the unique ceramic pieces that house multiple baby cacti. Much like my two head vases I filled with my own mini cacti garden just the other day!
We’ve talked a lot about color this year! From our Feng Shui tips on our Instagram #AskAPJ posts, to our forecast about trendsetting colors for the upcoming seasons. As usual, we got yo’ back APJ readers! We’re going to make it easy for you, here’s a refresher course:
Hey Guys, it’s Austrie! I’ve been chatting with one my favorite fashion/beauty/fitness bloggers, Stevie Henderson (she’s even done some styling for New York Fashion Week!).

She’s also shared the links to some of her favorite things and some items on her wish list. So go ahead, fall in love with her style just as I have.

If I’m ever lacking creativity or need a rush of artistic insight, beauty tips, a fashion update, and pretty much anything under the sun… I look to Pinterest. It’s my go-to site and houses over 5,000 ideas I’ve collected since joining. I love the fact that I can easily organize projects, have the ability to “hide” ideas and sources with those sneaky secret boards, as well as share links with friends, family, and even my clients. No matter how busy my week has been, I always fit Pinterest into my schedule. Here are some of my latest pins.
It’s not even Christmas but I can’t help but think of what I’m going to wear in celebration of NYE 2015. Since my boyfriend and I will be ringing in the new year on the Las Vegas Strip, I feel the need to be glamorous! Considering that last year’s festivities attracted more than 320,000 people… it may be difficult to avoid that ever dreaded “Who Wore it Best” situation.
The much anticipated announcement of Pantone’s Color of the Year 2015 was declared last week as Marsala.
