Valentine’s Lust List

February 7, 2012

It seems a little unfair of me to even ‘want’ for Valentine’s Day with us just moving into a new home a week ago but alas, is it fair of me to try to control my lusts? Ha, I think not! The husband I typically keep our prices to a minimum around Valentine’s, especially with it being so close to the holidays and my birthday in my March, and this list doesn’t stray far from that.

Keeping it under $75, and most well below $50, here are a few items perfect for my list or yours:



day at the beach (the perfect mini vacay!) /glam neige collar via bauble bar (white accessories look perfect with everything) / decorate (spied this book in anthropologie and you would have thought I was in Barnes & Noble, standing there reading an excessively long time. Gorgeous, great advice) /opal sparks leather pouch via anthrolologie (metallic polka dots? yes! The flip side is solid silver) / self-inking stamp (so my new addy always looks fashionable. plus have you seen my handwriting? ouch)  hunger games stamped bracelet (read the trilogy — access them all on amazon here -  and am now dying for the film to come out. This is a great saying)

PS: Today’s the LAST day to enter to win your choice of a product from Andalou Naturals, my favorite new go-to organic line of beauty products. So amazing, and perk: affordably priced.


LEIF: A must-know brand

December 14, 2011

When looking for holiday gifts it’s always fun to find them from lesser known retailers or brands. A few weeks ago I shared with you Uncommon Goods. Now, you must meet LEIF. I innocently discovered it through on Twitter and knew immediately I needed a post dedicted to it. Then, the lovely blogger Grace beat me to it! It’s still a must share! Here are a few of my favorite finds from this super cool, affordable online shop perfect for you or that darling hostess you’re heading to this holiday season.

Uncommon Goods

November 8, 2011

I have a love/hate relationship with catalogues. On one hand: it’s so much paper wasted for stores I’ll just shop online for or conversely, could care less about (and wondering how the heck they found me!). On the other hand: I get to drool over my favorite stores latest looks (talking to you Nordstrom, J. Crew, Anthro and Bloomies), and discover fabulous new brands, too.

This week’s find? Uncommon Goods. Tons of unique gifts, creative finds, lots of items made from recycled items, etc.  Also, tons of awesome items for entertaining or for that gracious hostess in your life. Here’s a few I’m spying (good thing since I’m planning my daughter’s second birthday and Thanksgiving five days apart).  



1. satellite bowl ($35-$45) /2. recycled wine bottle platters ($20) /3soup and sandwich ceramic duo set ($30) - also PERFECT for ice cream and pie, cereal and a fruit, options are endless /face mug ($18) / rainbow hors d’oeuvres set ($44) / unzippered glass bag ($20)

So, fun, right? TAGG always recommends a fun (and functional!) conversation piece!
