A Few Favorites...

I have a few new favorites from this past week that I want to share with you... I stopped at Trader Joe's on Thursday to pick up some strawberries for Cameron, who was literally in tears at breakfast that morning because the few strawberries we had had gone bad. Upon walking in, I saw these gorgous basil plants. I've had a few basil plants in my day; usually the kind from the grocery store that come with the sponge on the roots that you just put in a jar. Never a real plant in dirt. ;) I saw these, assuming they'd be $10 or so (considering the above mentioned grocery store version is usually $3.99). I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that it was only $2.99!! I picked one up, and have enjoyed looking at it and smelling it for the past few days. I'll pick and use some basil soon! parents and sister gave me a Kindle for my birthday, and I'm in love. It's so light, syncs automatically with the Kindle app on my phone and computer, and has been a great addition to my 'library'. {via} While grabbing a few things for work at the beauty supply store this week, I grabbed a new nail polish, Essie's Chinchilly. It's a great neutral, different than the typical pale pink I've been wearing. It's a nice change. Essie polishes are great in that they go on nicely, with good coverage with just two coats. {via} Oh, and one other favorite....we're leaving for Arizona on Wednesday for a little over a week in the sun. I'm soooo excited and can't wait for a relaxing, warm, sunny week! Hope you all have a great week as well!

Is Spring On Its Way?

I was looking through a previous issue of Coastal Living this afternoon and saw a page dedicated to gorgeous jewelry inspired by sea glass. I decided to take a look at a few of my favorite websites to see what I could come up with. There are some beautiful jewelry out there (at reasonable prices) that is making me yearn for Spring and Summer. Here are some of my favorites...

LOFT Long Twist Multi Chain Necklace

Stella and Dot Camilla Necklace

There was a beautiful necklace by Verre New York. For those of you that are local, they do have some local retailers.
Aval Kelp Necklace...isn't it gorgeous?! I love it.

Meri Meri Cupcakes

Cupcakes, especially when adorned by a great cupcake topper, is one of my favorite party decorations.

A few weeks ago I was in our local (small town) drugstore, picking up a prescription. I love wandering around the drugstore, because they have all kinds of fun things to look at. Everything from the general pharmacy type goods, to books, puzzles, shoes, home decor....and these adorable cupcake kits from Meri Meri.

Love this 'Let Them Eat Cake' set that I saw...

And this pirate cute would that be for a little boy's birthday party?!

If you can't find these locally, you can pick them up from this page of the Meri Meri website.
