Spring Makeup Zipper Pouch

Don’t you get all organizey and inspired to clean during the Spring? I am definitely feeling like that - probably also because we’re moving and I’m looking at all the stuff and thinking “I don’t really want to move any of this.” Well I do much better with keeping things tidy…

Totes Canvas Tote

“Totes” Cute Canvas Tote Bag

I don’t think you can have too many totes – do you? I mean, you need to have different totes for different occasions – and for different outfits right? I think so too. A month or so ago I came across this list of the 50 Best Bags of Fall 2014….

Get Out Of Town Tote

Kate Spade Nautical Tote Knockoff

I’m pretty sure Kate Spade and I are long lost BFF’s. She makes pretty much everything with me in mind. I mean, it’s all classic style, Polkadots and stripes, bright colors, and fun pops of gold. What’s not to love there? About a year ago she thoughtfully opened up an…

Lace and Linen Bow Clutch

Linen and Lace Bow Clutch

Sometimes I feel like my style is all over the place. I really love modern prints and styles – but I’m also drawn to looks that are classic and kind of preppy. I think I have multiple personality style issues. Or maybe they’re not issues. Maybe I just need to be ok with…

How to Make Mini Tassels

So we’re agreed that everything is pretty much cuter when it’s tiny right? Tiny little desserts, wee tiny kittens, mini coin purses, and my new favorite thing, these tiny little Mini Tassels. Aren’t they just the cutest? I can’t wait to add them to everything. These are soooo easy to…

Easy Pom Pom Fold Over Snap Clutch

I typically don’t love the color purple. I mean, it’s ok. I don’t hate it or anything – but I’ll pretty much choose most colors over it. But in the past year I’ve been wanting to make things more out of my comfort zone – and so I decided to…
