I’m Loving…

1. I fell in love with the Talia blouse from J.Crew the minute I spotted it in the catalog. Too bad it sold out online almost immediately. When I found one in my size at my local store last weekend, I didn’t think twice about getting it!

2. New candles from Anthropologie that are currently perfuming my office and our bedroom (I picked up a Capri Blue in Aloha Orchid and a Voluspa in French Cade Lavender). I used to shy away from spending money on big, nice candles, but lately have changed my tune. It’s such a worthwhile indulgence that lasts a long time.

3. Huggable hangers. I discovered these via Sarah, when she wrote about a closet cleanout. I purchased a couple sets at Container Store and they’re AWESOME. No more clothes sliding off hangers, or hangers that leave marks in your clothes. Bonus: because these hangers are so much thinner, you can fit more into your closet. I plan on buying lots more to replace all my janky plastic hangers.

4. Pure Peppermint tea from Peet’s. I don’t know how I’d be getting through the day without it.

5. These flats are not on sale online. So I have no idea how I lucked into getting them for 60% off in store. Same as the Talia blouse. I didn’t ask questions, I just handed over my credit card.

What’s making you happy these days?

    the fact that you just used the word janky – that’s making me happy :)
    i need to get me some of those fab hangers!

    Gotta love J.Crew. You can always find cute clothes on some sort of sale! I just converted to the huggable hangers from wood when I moved into my much smaller apartment downtown and they work so well! The clothes don’t slip and I was amazed how much more I could fit in my closet, easily doubled or tripled the amount of clothes I could put in it which is probably a bad thing!

    Congrats on the two fabulous scores! I love when that happens. And I have to get those hangers. Just rearranged my closet yesterday and it drives me crazy when things fall off.

    Hope you had a wonderful weekend and that your week is off to a great start! xoxo

    I need that blouse asap! Don’t you just love Anthropologie candles?!

    I tried on the dress of that top at J.Crew (shift, long sleeves, pockets) and was on the fence about buying it. Of course it is now sold out and I am having major should-have-purchased regret. Hopefully it will pop back up too!

    You know what I’m loving, the fabulously chic look around here- absolutely LOVE the new layout!!! And that blouse…oh how I adore it!

  9. 12.5.11

    Those hangers seriously changed my life! Best investment ever. So are candles actually. I know expensive doesn’t always mean better but it does with candles. Quality matters. Oh and you know how I feel about that shirt. Lucky girl for scoring it!

    That’s a sweet blouse! I love when I’m able to find an item that I previously thought was sold out and it’s on sale no less. I have an earlier version of those flats. They’re very comfy and wearable. Harney & Sons Earl Grey Tea and a macaron are making me happy at the moment :)

    I am seriously addicted to ANYTHING ANY FLAVOR of Peets!! Yummmm, anything Voluspa too…their products are amazing. And I am really craving something leopard and fun.

    it has been a long time since I dont shop home anthropologie… I should take a look.. I do have 3 candles around the home and love them.. yesterday I bought a striped black and white cardigan at old navy which I am loving.. and these cold days I can’t get enough of my white and green fusion tea.

    I desperately need some new coathangers – some of mine are completely and utterly useless.
