A BLUETIFUL RETURN!!!

Hello Lovelies!

We're baaaaaaack! Yaaaaaay! Mexico was absolutely gorgeous, and taking some time out to travel & enjoy what this wonderful has to offer was truly a beautiful experience. We ate delicious food, kayaked in the ocean, snorkeled in gorgeous water, zip lined through the jungle like Tarzan, swam with dolphins, danced until our feet ached, and relaxed in Jacuzzis until our bodies looked like prunes (stay tuned for a "Viva La Mexico" post w/pics). But we must say that we are happy for our return and SO excited about what's to come with Virtuous Blue.

First & foremost, we couldn't continue without apologizing for our long departure. After our return from our cruise, we got a little distracted with settling into our new place, readjusting to things, and making efforts to better our lives in many areas. Whether it's through health, fitness, finances, spiritually, socially, or professionally...we are all for embracing growth. However, even though we are embarking on a journeys individually, we're making steps to help each other out along the way, and it is our hope that you all would join us as well!

We'll be sure to keep you updated on our fitness regimen, health improvements, spiritual enhancement, and social endeavors. So with that being said, we wanted to include you all on some decorating progress we made on our apartment. Although these rooms now have furniture & a few decorative pieces, we don't want to do the actual "unveiling" until we have completely finished everything. So here is what we started with...


Room #1. A room that embodies a cool & vibrant mood. Adorned in a gray back drop, with a green focus wall, and toned down with dark espresso pieces, white furniture, and accented with small splashes of color sprinkled throughout the room.


Room #2 is the "warm" room with bold orange paint, strong dark & mahogany furniture pieces, and burgundy, brown, and gold accents.


Room #3 falls in the middle with a calming blue hue on the wall and offset with cherry wood pieces, and peach & orange tones to add a warmer feel.

The living and dining area (so far)...


We've come to find that your environment definitely influences your mood & state of being. So we made an effort to keep that in mind when decorating and gave each room its own special appeal. When you walk into your home, what emotion automatically pops into your mind? When you have been in a certain room in your place for an extending period of time, how do you feel after you leave? Keep these things in mind when thinking about the stance that you want to take on life. Remember that your foundation starts at home, so why not make it a firm foundation? Why not make it a comfortable? and more than anything else...why not make it a happy one? You DESERVE it!!

Thanks lovelies. Stay tuned for the cruise recap, apartment decorating progress, life updates, and so much more. And oh...don't forget to KEEP IT BLUE!!!

My three bedrooms are in different shades of blue! I have greens and a few shades of peach in my home. I love color! I do not have one wall in my home that is white! One who uses color, has a creative mind!
