a few days ago i got an email from kate spade, mentioning a sale they were having so they could make room for new items.. holiday items. of course i freaked out (internally) and waited for the email stating when the new items were released. after getting an email from kate spade, i went over to their website and chose my favorite items. a few of these will definitely be on my holiday wish list! the only thing i wished to see was a release of some iphone 5 cases, so kate spade please get on that!
i absolutely love making things from scrapbooks to cards, but room decor is probably my favorite. inspiration boards, murals cut out of silver poster board, you name it, i probably love or would love to make it. i had seen these confetti canvases all over the internet and figured they’d be easy to make. easy is an understatement! you only need a few supplies, along with ten minutes, and you’re good to go. when the holidays come around i plan on making some for me and my roommate to hang up on our dorm room door (how cute would a halloween one be?!). you can definitely personalize these through color, quotes, initials, etc., which i definitely think i’ll do in the future!
so i know the words black and blue evoke the grossness that are bruises, but if you get past that imagery, it’s actually quite a nice color combination. even though they’re both dark tones, they are complementary and can make an outfit. obsession could probably define my relationship with those tech cases, and i can not wait until i can get them before i head off to school!
every time the summer olympics rolls around, you will find me stationed in front of the tv when it comes to certain events. tonight will be one of those nights… there’s the men’s 200m im, where i’ll be rooting for team usa (and a little more for michael phelps!). i’ve been avoiding twitter, tumblr and any news outlets so i don’t see the results, but i really hope we medal in the women’s all around gymnastics final and swimming. fingers crossed!! i put together some simple olympics-inspired pieces i’d love to wear, and a pair of boots that can go from being casual to easily dressed up!
To me there’s nothing better than going to the beach on my days off. I worked from 10 to 6.45 at J.Crew and have set up camp on my couch and now refuse to get up! So while I sit on my couch and catch up on tv I decided to gather together my favorite beach items! Hopefully I’ll head out to the beach tomorrow.. Nothing like wishful thinking!
