Newest Obsession

{Some of my favorite flower pins from pintrest}

I am sure that many of you have caught on to the latest "it" site for social media- Pintrest. I love love love Pintrest. It is such a great place to get ideas and find inspiration. When it comes to wedding planning and "seeing the big picture" it has been extremely helpful! There are so many helpful and useful blogs out there that we are all now connected to through Pintrest. I also love Pintrest for recipes, fashion and home decor!

Monogram Monday

I have been meaning to post this all summer but better late than never! I love these monogrammed Lilly Pulitzer acrylic wine glasses! This is actually something very simple that can be done with anything acrylic- they are vinyl letters that are cute to size and then stuck on the glasses- SO CUTE! If Lilly P isn't your thing this could be a very cute project to do on any acrylic glasses!

Happy Weekend!

Did this week fly by or what? The weather has finally cooled down here in Texas (though I am sure it will get hot again!) and I am looking forward to a weekend without a whole lot going on (don't you love those?!) I thought I would share some awesome Calendars for 2012 from Smock Paper. I love year at a glace calendars because it feels like I am always planning a month a time. These letterpress calendars retail for under $10 and will make a great colorful addition to your pegboard!

What's in a Flame Stitch?


How many of you missed out on Missoni Home for Target like me? 4 locations before 10:30 am and nothing.... oh well I am moving on! There is so much out there right now in Flame Stitch right now that there is plenty of other goodies to buy! Personally the purple flame stitch phone cover and Umbrella are my favorites items from Jonathan Adler this season! I also love the Flame Stitch pillow from JA. Needing a less expensive alternative? Check out the bedding from Urban Outfitters- just as cute as the MHFT that we missed!!

Do you have yours yet?

Your 2012 Karen Adams Calendars? The stores are getting shipments daily and they ran out before Christmas last year so plan ahead! Just need a refill? No worries- the stores have those too!! This calendar makes the best gift for your friends, family, neighbors, and teachers- there really isn't a person who doesn't love these!

Lulalu is one of the many interesting lines that I saw while at NYIGF last month. Lulalu is redesigned Mayfair Lane brand of clips that so many of you love. I was a little skeptical when I first heard that they were redesigning the clip but then I saw them in person and loved it! Lulalu are great circular clips that have a nonsticky grip that stick to stainless steel fridges! They come in 12 bright solid colors so you can mix and match (awesome for school colors!) They also have some super cute notepads that also have the grip on the back! Look for these in all your stores in the coming months!

Sugarboo Stationery

{Cards on BHLDN}

Aren't the graphics on these cards great? These are from the line Sugarboo Designs who are known for their amazing frames and art but have now gotten into stationery. These little cards are a steal since they retail for around $2.00 a piece and are perfect to add to any gift to include your sweet message!

Rent The Runway Cont.

If you follow my blog you may remember me talking a while back about the website Rent the Runway. Last weekend I had my first opportunity to use the website and I have to say it was awesome! We were going to a black tie wedding in Austin, TX and I had worn everything in my closet on more than one occasion so I thought I would give it a whirl- I loved it!!! I wore an emerald green floor length Bagley Mischka $600 gown and I only spent $50 on it (I had a $50 gift certificate to the site). They delivered the gown to my hotel in Austin and they sent an additional size (which is what I ended up wearing!) After the wedding I just stuck the dresses in a USPS prepaid envelope and off the dress went!! It was seamless and I would totally use them again!!

Are you a Sloanie?

{All pieces can be found at Swoozies}

I thought I would give a more official post on Sloane Ranger now that the larger pieces are hitting the stores! Sloane Ranger has the cutest patterns in the most practical shapes! I love The duffle, The tote, and the crossbody bag! What I think is so great about Sloane Ranger is that it really knows no age- I think that the tote is great for mom's on the go as well as college kids and even down to a very cute preschooler bag! The duffle is great for tweens but could also be a very stylish gym bag! This line is going to be very very hot for Christmas- plan ahead so you don't miss out!!

Cie Luxe

I just stopped by a great store in McKinney to drop off a catalog for the awesome soap line Cie Luxe. Savon de Marseille is bold, bright, smells wonderful, and makes a statement in anyone home. Even better yet, Gwyneth Paltrow endorsed them on GOOP which must make it amazing! Martha Stewart also features them regularly in Martha Stewart Living.
