Happy Little Things…

Last week was a busy one, but I still managed to take the time to appreciate some of the small stuff.  For one, our apartment is starting to finally come together.  The little stuff is coming in droves, but we’re still waiting for the bigger items.  Redecorating has kept us busy, but is also incredibly exciting.  I cannot wait for our new lights, and new couch!  In the meantime I thought I’d highlight a few of the things that are making me smile right now!

A stack of books (the Domino Decorating Book is my favorite!) and new coasters from Anthropologie!

New shoes… from ShoeMint (get 15% off with code STRIPE15,) and Sam Edelman.  Both are incredibly comfortable – and amazingly affordable!  I don’t know the last time I got so many compliments on a pair of shoes.  (And it makes me so happy that the weather has been warm enough to wear both pairs quite a bit.)

Our guest room is starting to come together… Bon Nuit Pillow from Kate Spade!

West Elm Jewelry Tree, with BaubleBar jewelry + Hermes Bangle.

Silver tray from Design Darling, Blue Bottle $1 at Brooklyn Flea, Red Bottle from Anthropologie, small bottle from Paris, Diptyque Mimosa Candle.

    I love photos like this – it’s a fun little glimpse into what makes you happy. Whenever I see that Kate Spade pillow, I’m reminded of how much I need to purchase it!
