Happy Little Things

Here are a few little things that made me smile this week.  In true S&S fashion, they are mostly sparkly, shiny (and in one case, striped!)

I had a little bit of free time on Saturday to redecorate a bit.  Of course, I had to snazz up my dress form.   The necklaces are BaubleBar, pink + gold DIY’d, gold + silver DIY’d,) green Spike the Punch, and The Giving Keys.

These new shoes came c/o Shoemint.  I can’t stop raving about them.  I have been on a mission to add more chic flats to my wardrobe (cue the miu mius I featured last week,) and these 110% fit the bill. (If you order them and use my link, you can take 15% off with promo code STRIPE15.)

Somewhat embarrassingly, this is only a small cross-section of the striped Ts in my closet.  I can’t. stop.

I’m so obsessed with this little soap dish!  (similar) The soap inside is from Joya, who makes heavenly soaps + candles.

P.S. Although I’m not even the tiniest bit “poachable,” I was honored to make Betabeat’s list.

    Is there way to purchase the shoemint sandal flats without having to sign up for the monthly subscription?

    • graceatwood says 4.10.12

      I don’t know. You know that you can always opt out, right? Also – if you really love something, you could order it and then cancel your membership afterward. Just a thought. I’m a member of both Shoemint + Stylemint and am just careful to hit skip!

    I don’t blame you for buying all of those striped shirts! I have one too many in my closet, but I don’t regret buying any of them!


  15. Jessica says 4.10.12

    I love the Champagne bib necklace. I think this will be my first bauble bar purchase 🙂 

    • graceatwood says 4.10.12

      it’s so awesome! I know that I work for them, so I’m biased, but it’s seriously good. Lightweight too – every time I wear at least 3 people ask where it came from.
