This week I…

+ guest posted on Caviar Dreams, where I shared the one thing I always wanted for Christmas as a kid, but never received. What was that item for you?

+ finished up several blog design projects! Always such a great feeling. I can’t wait to share them with you very soon.

+ am getting a much needed pedicure tomorrow. I haven’t had these talons tended to since right before the wedding!

+ had a great time hanging out with Lucy and playing hooky a couple afternoons. After several weeks, I feel like we finally really, truly get each other. She sported her holiday sweater yesterday (and Kelly snapped the cutest pic of her too!)

+ am so tempted by this bag, especially since everything at the Crew is 30% off with free shipping right now!! (PSST — use code WISHLIST)

LINK OF THE WEEK: I had some time yesterday to finally comb through my Google Reader, and found a couple great things to share with you (it was hard to narrow it down!). Honestly, each of these blogs continue to be among my favorites. Even if it’s been a while since I’ve checked in, I always find it so worth it to really sit down and read every single post!

First, I loved Erin’s idea for quick, easy, and very versatile salt votives. These would be perfect for the holidays, but would honestly work pretty much year round! That girl needed a book deal like yesterday.

I also enjoyed catching up on what’s been going in Jess’s life. Her posts are always so inspiring to me, and especially during weeks when I feel off, or am filled with self doubt or plenty of other negative emotions, they give such fantastic perspective!

Finally, I spent some time browsing through High Street Market’s current collection. OMG, you guys. So, High Street Market was one of the first shops I ever made an Etsy purchase from, and it’s been amazing to see it grow. Kelly still has a ridiculously good eye, and her gifts under $30 and gifts under $50 listings in the shop were FILLED with covetable items. I already have several High Street Market finds in my home, and have to curtail it, lest it be a knick knack wonderland in here!

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

  3. Ah! Thanks for the reminder about High Street Market. I just spotted an anchor paperweight that I think I’m going to have to snatch up as a stocking stuffer.

      Blerg, I’m still debating. I JUST got two other bags recently
      so I don’t want the hubs divorcing me at Christmas time. It’s
      the kind of purchase I can’t really make without him definitely
      noticing!! It’s SUCH a good deal though!
