For this room look, use minimal pattern in large quantities, and rather, use a few bold patterns in small quantities. Try an accent pillow or a throw blanket!

For those of us who can't seem to get rid of old books, postcards, or pictures (no shame), this one is for you! Simply hang up all your old momentoes over your desk as reminders of how blessed you are! Keep the furniture simple so as not to distract from your keepsakes!

8. White + Bright, Clean + Green

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

I woke up this morning looking to find Naya Rivera's name trending No. 1 on Twitter. I was reading all of everyone's prayers wishing to find her so she can be reunited with her baby boy who is only 4 years old.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.
