Yesterday I was telling you about my new camera adventures…trying new things, exploring new creative outlets, rediscovering things I love.
One of my favorite color-loving brands, Boden, sent me this perfect spring bag. It’s shiny gold and fits my camera perfectly. On the weekends I want nothing to do with the large totes that I carry my laptop around in all week. I want something light, small, and that goes with everything. This is the bag. Perfect for a weekend hopping around the city.
Love it too? Not only is the Boden Mya bag on sale but I’m giving you another 15% off + free shipping (valid through 5/24). Promise you’ll carry it as much as I do. (And it also comes in pink and leopard. How’s a girl to choose?)
Not only was I home sick yesterday, but also my internet wasn’t working on my laptop. What an awful combination. So while lying in bed and doing not much besides watching West Wing, napping, and drinking yellow gatorade, I was also thinking of these pretty things…
Um a cropped gold leather jacket. Hello gorgeous. I would wear you everywhere.
The perfect spring bag? I love this leather scallop edge shopper.
Seriously, the perfect black wedge. I’m obsessed with mine.
I never can have enough hot pink and I just adore this hot chip necklace.
Paris: An Inspiring Tour of the City’s Creative Heart – must get this book on my coffee table stat.
Isn’t this cross-body bag from Angela & Roi just perfect for fall? It instantly reminds me of back to school shopping – when I’d hunt down cool, structured pieces in my favorite dark plum color. Like in 7th grade I had a dark purple cropped denim jacket AND matching flared jeans from XOXO. I may have worn them together too. Oh yeah. Such a trendsetter.
Today I’m giving away one of these purple satchels to a reader who’s equally excited about fall as I am. To enter, leave a comment below letting me know what you’re most looking forward to this fall. For an extra entry like Angela & Roi (who happen to be this fabulous college couple from Boston) on Facebook and let me know you did so in your comment. I’ll announce a winner next week.
In addition, my readers are getting 10% off one Angela & Roi purchase until September 16th. Just enter the discount code CUPCAKES when checking out. Happy fall shopping!
I spotted this fab Gigee Marie clutch on A Lacey Perspective last week and I can’t stop thinking about it. It comes in three fun colors and really, I just can’t resist anything with an exposed gold zipper. Oh, and it’s only $36! I’ll probably snag the pink “sorbet” one (shocker!) but maybe I’ll change things up and go with “tangerine”? All I know is that I’d like one of these under my arm this summer!
I’ve mentioned I’ve been on a banana kick recently. I just made this cake and soon you’ll see some fun banana cream pie treats too. Not only is banana one of my favorite flavors, but I’m also digging this color for spring. Wear it, drink out of it, have fun with it! Here are some of my top picks…
