Olive Youuu!!!

We are heading into Spring and all that fashion has for the season with anticipation and excitement. But first we have to acknowledge the beauty that Fall and Winter has brung into our lives. One has been catching my eye a lot lately and that is the color green but not any green…Olive green. It’s almost a neutral in how you can use it with such versatility. It compliments almost any color and brings a timeless elegance that can be a wonderful accent for years to come. It can be used as a staple or an accessory…

Enjoy and Love Always…

Always Blushin’…

Pink, oh sweet pink, it has always been my one of my favorite colors. Even though I do not own one pink article of clothing, I do accessorize with it. And the shade of pink I’m really feeling at the moment is blush. It is actually one of the trending colors at the moment. So you will see it everywhere. Like…

For the home…

Step Into My Office…

Conducting business out of the home is something of the norm now a days. Knowing that your environment can influence your productivity, I have been exploring some beautiful home offices looking for inspirations for my own interior design project. Stay tuned for that. There are some that can take up a whole room to part of a room to sharing a guest room to hiding away in a closet. The opportunity to have a special space to take care of your business are only limited by you.

The Tatted Soulmate…

The most beautiful thing in the world is Love and the second is expressing Love through tattoos. I Love when couples form a bond so deep that they want to represent it on their body forever…True Love. There are other relationships that also share this bond like siblings, family, and best friends. There are all kinds of creative ways to express it and here are a few…

Flowers Are The Bouquet Of Life…

I enjoy greatly seeing, smelling, and the arrangement of beautiful flowers. Flowers bring joy for many different occasions, birth, death, marriage, and expressions of Love and gratitude. I believe it is a form of art and some possess a gift in how and what flowers go great together. There is a lot that goes into perfecting a beautiful flower arrangement, the base, the greenery (if any), the color scheme, the actual type of flowers, and the arrangement of the flowers. I want to explore this a little more with you all…

Materials we might not even think about…

Always Time For A Selfie (Lost Files)!

I tend to take a lot of selfies, mostly because I roll by myself a lot and I actually like having control of how the pictures will turn out. I post them on my Instagram (@yshanaquaysbeauty) and on Facebook (Yshanaquay Unique Gambrell) but I don’t post all the pics I take so I have decided to share the ones that did not make the cut, here with you guys. It’s okay to laugh and Love Always…

Coats, Coats and more Coats!

“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” is a quote I live by while scouring these awesome thrift stores out here. But these treasures were truly a gift from God as they were donated to me, so they were indeed $free.99 and that is the best price ever. We have Zara, Banana Republic, Andrew Marc, which make this extra special. I have to say I only mention the name brands because it indicates the quality in which these items were made and worth the recycling of their lifespan. But now that the weather has broke here in NYC and we’re hitting 60 degrees, it looks like I’m set for next winter. There are a few that were intended for this weather so they came just in time. Plus I received my very first rain coat and that vest is out of my comfort zone but so cute. Can’t wait for my first rainy day. Till next time Love Always…

Pin Me!!

I have to say that I Love a lot of things, it is what makes life bearable. The more you find to enjoy, the less you see what can make you sad. Pinterest has found a beautiful way of bringing me great joy, mostly because they cover so many categories all in one place. Go check out my boards @yshanaquay. Here are some of the things you will see. Thank me later. Love always…
