Little Luxuries

All $40 and under

Bringing back an oldie but goodie today! Bookmarked all within the last week or so, these little luxuries meant the time was ripe for a comeback.

ASOS Striped Maxi Dress, $36  ·  I have to admit, I don’t shop at ASOS all that much, but every now and again I end up on the site and am pleasantly surprised by the cute, affordable finds. With summer on the horizon, I’ve been keeping an eye out for easy dresses to don once temps are in the high 80s and we just want to lay around like this in front of a fan…this striped maxi fits the bill!

Framebridge’s Instagram Minis, $39  ·  By now you’ve probably heard of Framebridge. The concept is fantastic: you mail or upload your artwork to them, select a frame and mat, they put it all together for you, then mail back your finished art, ready to frame, all for flat prices. I have several wedding photographs I’ve never gotten framed, but more importantly, I’ve been having a great time brainstorming which hilarious photos of Instagram photos of Lucy I’ll be framing through their Instagram Mini program — you get a square Insta, framed and matted, for thirty nine bucksUpdate: I saw on Facebook last night that you can order TWO Instagram minis for $50 with the code 2INSTA50. Um, done and done.

Vogue Colors A-Z, $15  ·  Have you participated in the adult coloring book craze yet? I have yet to partake (one could argue that posts like these serve as my coloring book), but I had to bookmark the new Vogue Colors book — a coloring book filled with Vogue covers from 1912 to 1932. Color ’em in, then frame your beauties with Framebridge, ha!

RMS Master Mixer, $38  ·  RMS’s Living Luminizer will go down in my personal beauty history as one of the greatest highlighters ever — subtle, not glittery or shimmery, just gives you that glow. I was excited to find that they’ve released a warmer tone, called Master Mixer, done in a gorgeous rose gold shade. You can use it on your own as a highlighter perfect for summer, but looking around at reviews, it seems to blend beautifully into lipsticks, powders, everything. One review said it could double your makeup collection, it was that blendable and versatile. Consider me intrigued!

Pineapple Pencil Holder, $16  ·  Because, pineapples. They’re so hot right now! I think this would look adorable on a bathroom counter, filled with makeup brushes.

Agate Bookends, $35  ·  West Elm is featuring a couple different colors of agate bookends, with each set costing $35. I love blending in natural elements like this when decorating — it brings that organic feel that I consider a must.

    I’ve been interested in trying an RMS product. The highlighter might be a good one to start with! I’ve also been meaning to hang some photos of our son around the house. Now that he’s 1, we should probably have more than one photo of him. :) I love your recommendations and your graphics are the absolute best!
