Up next in my series of gift guides is my personal favorite (see gift guide #1 here). I’m pretty much obsessed with office supplies. I’m currently working on updating my office and making it a place where I can be inspired. And you clearly see my color preference here. If you know someone who loves creating a pretty workspace, then here are some gift ideas for you. Or if that person is you, then send this list along to your parents, spouse or anyone else needing some gift ideas for you! In an ideal world, I’d snap my fingers and this entire list would appear magically beside me! (Can you even handle that mouse pad?!)
So here’s the deal. I was shopping online for some cute home gift ideas, and got suckered in to One King’s Lane. Holy cow. Why don’t more people talk about this site? If you don’t already know, I am obsessed with home decor. Andrew and I are on the hunt for a house right now, but are waiting until we save some more money. I really spend a lot of my time dreaming of my future home. Pinterest is a great place where I can put all my ideas and find so much inspiration. Once we do get a house you can expect a lot more decor posts. So in the meantime I am going to show you what I’m lusting over. Usually I pick items from multiple stores online, but I could not leave One King’s Lane. Most of their pieces are right up my alley and they are having some amazing sales right now. I am so in love with copper and marble decor accents, and the site is filled with them! I mean…can we take a moment and check out that rolling pin…?! I hope this gives you some great gift ideas!
It is kiiinda starting to feel like fall. The mornings and evenings are definitely cooler, but the afternoons are still really warm. So my way of feeling like the seasons are changing is to layer. I can get away with wearing my summer dresses if I just add in some tights. Plus, I am so pasty white I can’t handle to see too much skin. Another thing I am loving is leather, lots of it. I usually would wear my black leather booties, but I need to step away from them and give them a break! So I added in my fab booties by Jeffrey Campbell to spice up this look. I hope you are all having a wonderful month. Can you believe it is almost November? Unreal. Talk soon guys!
So I have been going slightly crazy in the pinterest/home decorating/dreaming department these days. I am so excited and ready to decorate my future home! Renting apartments doesn’t allow for many permanent decor plans, so I have had a lot of time to brainstorm what I really love. Once style in particular that has been so appealing to me is European. There is nothing prettier than buildings in Paris and old eclectic designs. Brass hardware, chandeliers and glossy black accents pretty much make me drool. We’ll see how much I’ll get away with once Andrew and I buy a home. These are some items that are on my lust list!
In spirit of the Olympics I have a gold-spiration board for you today. I have become so in love with everything gold lately. I am instantly drawn to it and it makes me happy! Add a little glamour in your life by switching a few knobs in your house with gold-accented ones, or use a gold spoon for your sugar…it’s the simple things that’ll make you smile.
