Lately I've come across all kinds of great buys ... the kind that make you want to call up your best friend and tell her to go get it NOW! I'm honestly not a huge shopper. I try (for the most part) to avoid casual, impulsive purchases (except when at Target, IKEA or Michaels - or vacaction :|). Okay - maybe I do like to shop ;) But when I really see something I like, is a great value and I can't get it out of my mind, then I want to share it! So, this post is dedicated to some recent finds that caught my eye (and wallet!). Maybe you'll find something you like too!
First up are all the pretty things I fell in love with from the recent Stella & Dot trunk show I hosted. I really could have gone nuts and bought most all of it! Here are the items I zeroed-in on (p.s. the purse is big enough to fit your laptop!!) . . .
Next up are some really fun and whimsical additions to any party or just everyday serving needs (great for outdoor entertaining!). These trays from IKEA would make great gifts, too! Maybe sit a pair of cute coffee mugs with a Starbucks gift card on top and wrap in cellophane for teacher appreciation week/end of school year gifts. Or, stack your Mom's favorite books on top with a pretty tea cup and her favorite type of tea for Mother's Day. Would also be cute to put candles on and wrap-up for a fun housewarming gift.
Finally, I've been on the look-out for the perfect perch to use as a side table and to sit on. I just adore these stools from One King's Lane. They are both functional and have great personality - especially that owl!
Have you found any great buys lately? I'd love to hear about it! :) nikki
