I’m pretty sure Kate Spade should pay me at this point for the incessant promotion on my blog, or at least offer me some free swag, don’t you think? I can’t help that all her designs are so perfectly feminine with just the right touch of rebellion. Case in point: these gorgeous pumps. Vibrant yellow seems like it is going to be the shade of the spring, and paired with this playfully striped heel, you’ll be the life of the party. Or at least the target for jealous glances.
I feel really bad for Lowe’s and Home Depot. Their paint swatch department must be at an all-time low with all these amazing DIY’s making their rounds around Pinterest. I know I’ve been a culprit: stealthily making my way over to the paint section and quickly shoving handful after handful of swatches in my purse while wearing the most “I’m not guilty” look on my face. Anyone else? No? OK. However, the guilt and embarrassment is well worth it if it results in something that looks as gorgeous and dainty as this chandelier. Gah!
I love a good handwritten font. What do I love more? A true handwritten font! These customizable address stamps have been created by someone’s actual hand using a calligraphy pen just for you and your future snail mail. However, make sure before you buy that you have found the place as these will set you back $65. Wanderlusters need not apply!
Glitter is a way of life for me, not just an accent for holiday cheer. A good glitter can go a long way. But not everything that glitters is gold. Whew. Sorry. I seemed to have gotten a little carried away. Sparkles tend to do that to me. With that said, I am totally loving this glitter-effect curtain from the one and only Anthropologie. Although it is not physically made with glitter, the way the petals are laid out give it a similar feel. Again, it unfortunately comes with a hefty price tag (theme of this Friday?), so I am crossing my fingers and toes that it either (a.) goes on super sale after Christmas or (b.) gets successfully ripped off by another company (I’m looking at you, Target).
As if I needed another excuse to feed my ever-growing nail polish hoarding behavior (I believe I’m over 50 at this point), I just discovered that China Glaze will be coming out with a Hunger Games inspired collection to celebrate its release in theaters. At this point, it’s pretty common knowledge that I am a full blown tribute (aka; fan of the popular trilogy), so this is super exciting for me (wow, I’m a nerd). However, it seems like there was some legal dilemmas surrounding this product, and in the scuffle, we lost out on some pretty stellar names (Joined at the Seam, Catnip, and my personal favorite, Cinna-mon, just to name a few) and were left with the more mundane, run-of-the-mill ones you see above. However, that will not deter me from buying every single shade in the collection, so help me Peeta. 😉
OH don’t worry, I’m so chic that I have a personalized stamp for Henri Bendel. No problem.
Kate Spade is one of my favorites. Do you remember that black original tote bag I had freshman year of college? It stayed on the top shelf of my dorm closet because it was “too nice” to take out @ UF, and accumulated a semester’s worth of dorm dust on the top…
No? Only I remember that. As usual. lol.
I TOTALLY remember. That thing lasted you a lifetime. In fact, do you still have it? I wouldn’t be surprised!

I definitely miss the more Hunger Games inspired names but I’m just glad the collection is happening! It was so touch and go there for a moment, hehe
It really was! You know what I’ll miss? Not having you around for THG premiere. Sad.
