These pieces are also made with comfort in mind, they have plenty of stretch and breathability making them easy to transition into summer time. Needless to say we are so happy to have Macbeth back in our stores. We have so many favorites we couldn't pick just one, and we hope you feel the same. Without further ado.....here is the Macbeth Spring/Summer 2015 collection!

This list is a compilation of our favorite pieces you can wear this Valentine’s Day. Whether it’s during the day while you hangout with your significant other, or you’re getting ready to go on your big date, we have all your options. If you’re single and ready to mingle, throw on the Show Me Your Love Dress and go out with all your single ladies; I promise you’ll catch someone’s eye in that dress. The Life’s a Peach with a Hint of Gold Infinity Scarf is a great present to give to your best friends as a reminder of how much you love them.

My personal favorite is the Pink Me Up Romper. What about yours?
DIY VALENTINE’S DAY GIFTS Thursday, January 29, 2015
As Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, many of us sit here and wonder what can we give our significant other that hasn’t already been done. If there is any holiday where we can use our creative sides, it’s definitely Valentine’s Day. This is your chance to show your special someone how much they mean to you, and what better way to do it than by making a personal gift for them. DIY has made it so easy for us to be cutesy in everything we do. Here are my three favorite ideas:
1. Use a mason jar and decorate the top however you think is cutest! I personally like that it says “Cheap Dates” because it’s funny and straight to the point. Inside the jar you’ll write little cards about fun and inexpensive dates the two of you could go on whenever you have date nights. Each card has a total value on it with cash paper clipped to the note. This is an adorable idea for the nights where you just don’t know what to do. Whether it’s to go out and get ice cream or rent bikes and stroll through the park, you can’t go wrong when you’re spending time together.
2. If your significant other is a foodie, like moi, these cupcakes are so fun. I would personally have one cupcake made and wrapped up in a box with a card that says, “You are the sprinkles to my cupcake.” Then have another box with all the ingredients already measured out with a personalized note with each ingredient. This way, the two of you could enjoy making them together over a nice bottle of wine.
3. This is probably one of the cutest and most creative DIY’s I’ve seen in a while. Tie a ribbon on your door or wherever you’ll see it every day. Add a sign that says, “Kiss me countdown.” On the ribbon, tie pink, red, and silver Hershey Kisses—one for each day leading up to Valentine’s Day. Each morning, take a kiss and it’s your own personal countdown for the big day. This is so sweet and does not take a lot of time or effort, and also a good reminder for those who easily forget.
Regardless of what you choose to do, you can do no wrong on Valentine’s Day, because no matter how big or small the gift is, your significant other will love you for it. Try some of these DIY projects or come up with your own. Or if you’re anything like me, single and lovin’ it, make yourself a cupcake to accompany your Netflix marathons.
Happy Valentine’s Day! T-minus 15 days!read more...
5 Ways to Keep Your 2015 Resolutions Friday, January 23, 2015
We are well into the new year as January is coming to a close and February is quickly approaching. By this point some may have fallen off the new year's resolution bandwagon, the trips to the gym we swore we'd take, the investments we said we'd make into ourselves may not be working out quite like we hoped they would. Or maybe you're rocking the new year and staying on track, good for you! If you're like me, you might be struggling to keep yourself in check in 2015. Here are my tips for staying accountable and accomplishing everything you want to in 2015.
1. Write it down.
I personally have a tendency in my busy day to day life to forget things that are not labeled as a "priority" in my daily schedule and list of things to do. Writing down the things I want to accomplish for the day like adding "Go to the gym" in the middle of my schedule helps me not get too caught up in my workday that I forget to have some "me" time. Plus it is oh so satisfying to check that off my list each day.
2. Make it easy.
I have found that one of the biggest stumbling blocks in keeping up with my resolutions is myself. For example one of my goals this year was to drink more water everyday. I quickly found out that I hate having to break my concentration every 30 mins or so to get a new bottle of water, and this stopped me from reaching my daily goal. To make it easy for me to drink water continuously throughout the day I bought the biggest mason jar cup I could find (48oz of pure hydration people!), I knew the more convenient it was for me to take a sip throughout the day the more I was likely to do it. Plus the cup was really adorable and I just couldn't resist.
3. Make it a treat.
Just like with the mason jar cup I mentioned above, making the task you are trying to accomplish a treat for yourself will help you feel more positive towards the situation. So instead of telling yourself "I have to go to the gym today" like it's a chore, rephrase it in a way that is positive. "I get to have some 'me' time at the gym today." Perspective is everything.
4. Take a break.
Try not to make the mistake of burning yourself out in the first few months of the year. Intensity is not a bad thing, just don't overdo it. Instead try to create habits that will not only last you throughout 2015 but many years after. Think of it as muscle training, before you know it working out, eating healthy, or even drinking more water will be natural and easier part of everyday life. Slow and steady y'all!
5. Try something new.
I don't know about you but I tend to get bored pretty easily. Changing it up every once in awhile helps keep your goals fresh and fun, variety is the spice of life after all isn't it.
One way I implement this into my water drinking goal is by making fruit infused waters when I get tired of plain water. Join a class or eat something you might not normally try, whatever your goal is you can find something to make it an experience rather than a bore.
Bonus! 6. Reward yourself.
You deserve it! Even if your new year's resolution this year was to sleep more you deserve a little something for making it this far. Go treat yo' self!
