Hello dear friends. I am excited to have my #2 as my guest blogger today. She agreed to do a post on some of her favorite things.
Etsy is the new Forever 21. You need to go in/on with patience, diligence, and a strategy. Forever 21 is easily the most overwhelming store in the mall. Just walking past makes my blood pressure rise just a little. I'd say it's due to the hoards of clothes piled on every single surface. Etsy is similar, but it differs in that it sustains organized chaos. You are able to sift through your favorite store's "favorite items/shops," discovering your own as you hunt. I only navigate over to Etsy when I am in the right mindset. And when I have a semblance of an idea of what I am looking for.
In case you couldn't tell, the whole "blue-and-white" thing kinda runs in the family. It's safe to say it's graduated to an obsession. These are two "Kantha Quilts" that I found. Handmade in India and surprising well priced considering the color and detail.
White Elephant Designs is a monogramming company that specializes in monogramming acrylic pieces. Great grad gift.
This is one of my personal favorite stores; it's called Mally Claire Jewelry. Mally is not only an incredible entreprenuer with an eye for color and design, but she is also a full-time college student. One more thing, she is also my childhood best friend. Could not be prouder of her.
I've been in love with this store for a long, long time. Ljc designs is a Bali-based company specializing in bright summer clothing and accessories. The bag on the left is actually an iPad case. Ljc also makes a ton of shorts and rompers, pictured right.
Thank you, #2, for a great job. The check is in the mail.
And now I would like to add one of my latest favorite things.
This is one of the best books that I have read this year. The characters are believable and the plot is loaded with twists and turns. It kept me enraptured until the very last word of the epilogue. Many are comparing this book to Gone Girl. I disagree. I think it is better.
Hope your Monday feels like a Friday!
Guess which pooch loves the rain and which one doesn't.
