I have been completely inspired by collage art and illustrations as of lately. A piece from Monica Trastoy called black01 directly inspired this look. I’m loving shade palettes and geometrics. I feel like it’s all that I have been pinning on pinterest. It’s crazy how little things in your everyday life can be so visually inspiring; a sunset, snow sparkling on the surface, the woodgrain on your furniture.
Oscars red carpet fashion roundup with a dash of bingo
The great thing about bingo is that you can apply its mechanics into almost any kind of theme and practically make a new game out of it. For instance, wardrobe bingo – online clothing retailer Boohoo.com’s challenge to fashionista bloggers last year – is a fashion mix-and-match incorporating bingos’ numbers drawing system. Coffee shop bingo is probably best described as coffeehouse “I Spy” with a bingo card twist. And then there’s dance bingo, which as its name implies, challenges players to dance and daub at the same time.
For many followers of the Academy Awards, critiquing the fashion sense of the parade of celebrities walking down the red carpet can be just as enjoyable as the actual show itself. And to add a bit of fun, putting a bingo spin on the proceedings should do just that.
For lack of a better name, let’s call this game “Fashion Police Bingo: The Oscars Edition.” To play it, all you need is a bingo card with the names of attending celebrities on it, and a keen eye for fashion. You then choose whether you want to go with fashion victims or the fashion fabulous, and then proceed to daub out the names on your card. Needless to say, the winner is whoever gets to form a bingo line first.
Bingo is all about fun. It is, after all, more a social activity than it is a competitive one. In fact, it’s an aspect of the game that companies in the bingo industry focus on in their marketing campaigns. Online bingo provider foxybingo‘s party vibe doesn’t just stop with TV ads featuring mascot Foxy shaking his groove thang and getting something started wherever he goes. The company actually organizes these parties themselves, like the Foxy Bingo Cruise and the VIP Super League Party.
It’s this kind of high energy spirit that can be injected into your usual fashion police routine if you mix it up with bingo. Not that that isn’t enjoyable enough on its own, but we could always do with a bit more fun.

You asked, I listened. I don’t know how many times I’ve been asked by my readers for a home tour. I’ve been meaning to do one for quite some time. So by request, I will be sharing a few rooms in my home over the next few months. I hope you love this little window into my daily life.
