It’s been a few weeks, but welcome back to WISHLIST WEDNESDAY! I’m trying to get back on top of blogging throughout this increasingly busy time of year… hopefully I can keep it up. 🙂

#1 Sriracha Mustard from EvolutionaryFarms ($9). There’s not much more I love than Sriracha and mustard… so combine the two and I’m in heaven! I’d spread this shit on EVERYTHING.

Screen Shot 2015-03-04 at 2.53.21 PM

#2 Camera Planter from Brooklyn Global ($39). I desperately need more plants — especially succulents and cacti — in my office (and my whole house), and what would be more perfect than a camera-shaped planter? Love this!

Screen Shot 2015-03-04 at 2.41.25 PM

#3 Mint Resin Ring with Rose Gold Flakes from daimblond ($29.57). These resin rings are so unique looking, and I love the combination of the cool mint resin with the rose gold flakes… stunning!

Screen Shot 2015-03-04 at 2.39.21 PM

#4 The Truth is Out There Sweater from Slimenstein’s Mad Science Supply Co. ($25). This is just… perfect. What else can I say?

Screen Shot 2015-03-04 at 2.58.59 PM

#5 Oversize Gold Paper Clip Desk Organizer from Gallivanting Girls ($16). I would LOVE to have this amazing organizer on my desk — office perfection!

Screen Shot 2015-03-04 at 2.31.35 PM

#6 Tone it Downtown Dress from ModCloth ($49.99). This soft, dusty blue is gorgeous, and the love the lace detail — now it just needs to be spring so I can wear it without 2098497298 layers over it!

Screen Shot 2015-03-04 at 2.43.10 PM

#7 Cactus Tote from Amelie Mancini ($95). From the cactus print to the leather handle, this is just amazing.

Screen Shot 2015-03-04 at 2.49.24 PM

#8 Anatomical Heart in a Jar from Kiva Ford ($195). I am so in love with this. It would be a perfect addition to my weird little knick-knacks.

Screen Shot 2015-03-04 at 2.56.17 PM

#9 Siren Body Polish from viceandvelvet ($10.44). This time of year I need all the skin help I can get, especially with exfoliating. This body polish has Ylang Ylang, rose geranium, litsea, orange, and patchouli… mmm!

Screen Shot 2015-03-04 at 3.00.36 PM

#10 Golden Palm Leaf Leather Wallet Pouch from kertis ($68). The shape, the pattern, and the colors… all perfection! You really can’t beat black and gold, so don’t even try.

Wishlist Wednesday! #13

Welcome to WISHLIST WEDNESDAY! Things were crazy around here last week and I totally missed it, so I was excited to make up a list today. It’s a good one, as always, and somehow I was able to limit myself to only TWO cat items. 😉

Screen Shot 2015-02-18 at 2.32.24 PM

#1 Vintage Brass Pineapple Trinket Dish from thewhitepepper ($34.50). I love brass figurines. I love trinket dishes. I love pineapples. A match made in heaven!

Screen Shot 2015-02-18 at 2.05.05 PM

#2 Modern Mushroom Wall Clock from decoylab ($70). This is just the cutest little clock I’ve ever seen!

Screen Shot 2015-02-18 at 2.10.08 PM

#3 Mug Card from amyawalters ($3.96). I have a pretty awesome mug collection of my own (photos coming soon!) so having a card with a mug collection on it would be some kind of Inception awesomeness.

Screen Shot 2015-02-18 at 2.07.37 PM

#4 Lace Racerback Tank Top from RogueMinxClothing ($100). I am all about clothes being simple, basic, and easy to layer and combine… but I also want them to be pretty! This racerback tank is the best of both worlds… a basic white, flattering cut, and looks comfortable, and the lace is SO stunning!

Screen Shot 2015-02-18 at 11.53.31 AM

#5 Wildflowers & Honey Bath Bomb from FormularyFiftyFive ($6). There’s not much I love more than lounging in a hot bath, especially during the winter. Add a bath bomb (especially with such a delicious scent!) and I’m in heaven.

Screen Shot 2015-02-18 at 2.08.18 PM

#6 Ice Cream Cone Pillow from shannonbroder ($40). I’m pretty sure ALL of my pillows should be shaped like delicious foods or adorable animals, and this would be a good start!

Screen Shot 2015-02-18 at 2.34.23 PM

#7 Cat Return Address Stamp from nativebear ($55). I don’t send a whole lot of snail mail these days — I used to weekly for my business but have switched to all digital — but I think if I had an amazing cat return address stamp I’d find an excuse to send things. 😉

Screen Shot 2015-02-18 at 2.04.11 PM

#8 Cat Stud Earrings from fazjewelry ($20). These are just the cutest freaking things. I believe she does custom projects as well (using photos of your animals!) which would be AMAZING — I need some Mukow earrings!!

Screen Shot 2015-02-18 at 10.49.22 AM

#9 Salt Water Outer Bank on It Sandals in Red from ModCloth ($39.99). I’m just going to pretend that it’s NOT February, the ground is NOT covered in roughly eight thousand feet of snow, and it’s NOT a mere 28 degrees outside right now while I lust over these gorgeous things.

34477208_001_b

#10 Kimchi Blue Scarlett Fit + Flare Dress from Urban Outfitters ($69). This is such a simple and gorgeous black dress (with a more intricate back!) and I want to fill my closet with about 80 of them. You can do SO MUCH with a black dress and once spring hits I’m pretty sure I’ll be wearing them 90% of the time!

Wishlist Wednesday! #12

421070522

Welcome to WISHLIST WEDNESDAY! This week’s collection seems a little scattered to me but… I FEEL a bit scattered this week so maybe it’s fitting.

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 11.17.05 AM

#1 Navy Blue Pluto Necklace from BeautySpot ($23). This pendant is just so gorgeous — I love anything space- or galaxy-related, and not only does this have the planet thing going for it, but it’s such a lovely shade of blue. AND at $23 it’s a freaking steal!

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 11.38.59 AM

#2 Bat Statement Necklace from HartandHuntress ($106.20). I LOVE bats and this gorgeous bronze necklace would be a perfect way to wear one every day!

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 12.13.03 PM

#3 Ovaries Before Brovaries Hand Embroidered Hoop Art from StitchCulture ($36). If you love Leslie Knope as much as I do, you’ll appreciate this. So, so awesome — I could totally picture it on the wall behind my desk.

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 11.42.28 AM

#4 Bar Tools 11×14 Print from redcruiser ($30). I want to start hanging more art in the kitchen and how PERFECT would this bar tools print be above our, well, bar area? Oh man!

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 11.14.49 AM

#5 Cat Cameos Knee Socks from Plasticland ($13). I am a firm believer in socks always being cute — life is too short for plain white socks — and these absolutely fit the bill. So perfect!

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 11.39.41 AM

#6 “Little Icosahedron” Glass Terrarium from boxwoodtree ($45). One of my goals for the year is to keep more plants in the house, and having a few of these amazing terrariums around would DEFINITELY help. So modern and gorgeous.

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 11.13.32 AM

#7 Chevron the Go Bag by Steve Madden, for sale via ModCloth ($97.99). I’ve been on the search for a good all-purpose bag and this is damn awesome. I love the relatively subtle chevron pattern and the color is lovely!

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 11.45.11 AM

#8 Half Blonde Half Black Wig from kekeshop ($149.95+). I am in love with the idea of frequently changing my hair up, and how fun would it be to have a few wigs to throw into the mix? You can get a dramatically different style or color without any of the trial and error involved. Brilliant!

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 12.03.54 PM

#9 Black Dots Nail Wraps from SoGloss ($8). I am a HUGE fan of nail wraps. I love doing my nails myself, and love all of the color and pattern options, but sometimes I just don’t have the patience. Nail wraps are just as quick as painting your nails (if not quicker), and you don’t have to wait for them to dry — just go about your business. I love this lady’s shop — this is just one of the many patterns I’d like to snag for myself!

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 11.46.34 AM

#10 Saint Yeezus Prayer Candle from HolyPopCulture ($11.95). I mean… I am really at a loss for words right now. I had to save this one for last because honestly, who would have looked through the rest of the list after they saw this? They’d be too busy not only buying up this candle, but one of the many other amazing candles this store has to offer — I myself am loving Saint Ryan, Saint Amy, and OHMYGOD Crazy Saint Nicolas. So, so, so good.

Wishlist Wednesday! #11

411372968

WISHLIST WEDNESDAY!! Quickly becoming my favorite day of the week because, duh, I love shopping. I am, as always, psyched about this collection. I’ve said it before but my Wishlist Wednesday collections are items that I myself would buy in a heartbeat (and often they’re from online stores, local shops, or small businesses that I regularly patronize and love). There’s generally not a “theme” to the lists, per se, unless it’s a special occasion — they’re really just collections of things that I saw that made me go “ooh! I want that!!”. My goal is for the lists to truly capture my style and the things I love. Anyways, on to the awesomeness!

Screen Shot 2015-01-28 at 12.49.16 PM

#1 Silver protective hand ring from datter ($77.97). I am not a huge ring wearer but I would snap this up in a second. It’s so unique and beautiful, and I really do love the idea of the little hands hugging my finger!

Screen Shot 2015-01-28 at 12.46.25 PM

#2 Coffin book shelf from BlackWillowGallery ($120). This just COULD NOT BE MORE AWESOME. It’s a small shelf — just over 2 feet high — but my mind is spinning with all of the places in my house I could put this amazing piece of furniture. Sigh!

20150128122259

#3 Dip dye print henley from Free People ($88). I am a huge fan of dip dyeing and the purple colors on this shirt are just gorgeous — plus I love the relaxed style and the pattern. I pretty much love everything about it!

Screen Shot 2015-01-28 at 12.38.24 PM

#4 Sweater dress from yourbeautyzone ($67). I adore how cozy and comfortable this dress looks — and anything that can easily be paired with leggings/tights and flats is a win in my book!

Screen Shot 2015-01-28 at 12.51.06 PM

#5 Mothman patch from MaidenVoyageClothing ($6). I love most of the items in this amazing shop, but I am a huge fan of their Cryptozoology Tracking Society patches and shirts. The Mothman is probably one of my favorite liminal creatures and this patch is amazing!

Screen Shot 2015-01-28 at 1.02.25 PM

#6 Visualize Victory backpack in caramel from ModCloth ($67.99). I am in serious need of an awesome bag for my outdoor adventures and this one is just gorgeous!

Screen Shot 2015-01-28 at 12.51.47 PM

#7 Tina Belcher earrings from SleepyMountain ($9). I am a HUGE fan of Bob’s Burgers and Tina is one of my favorites — these earrings are KILLER.

Screen Shot 2015-01-28 at 12.47.44 PM

#8 Cactus weekly to-do list from witandwhistle ($12). Handmade and SO ADORABLE. It comes with 50 pages on a heavy chipboard backing and the cactuses are to die for!

Screen Shot 2015-01-28 at 12.35.30 PM

#9 Palm reader necklace from CustomRebelRocks ($21.81). I am DYING over this necklace — so perfect.

Screen Shot 2015-01-28 at 12.31.42 PM

#10 Midnight Marquee carnival star light from Plasticland ($55). As if this marquee light wasn’t amazing enough, it’s powered by AA batteries so you can LITERALLY PUT IT ANYWHERE YOU WANT. Swoon!

Wishlist Wednesday! #10

Welcome to WISHLIST WEDNESDAY! I’m pretty excited about this collection because, as always, it’s badass. I hope you like it, too. 😀

405953698

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 11.44.38 AM

#1 Cat-Eye Sunglasses from MANGO ($29.99). I am a liiiittle bit in love with these. Tortoiseshell frames and gradient lenses, plus that perfect cat eye… swoon!

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 12.00.00 PM

#2 In Pizza We Crust Pint Glass from Urban Outfitters ($8, or 2 for $10). Do I need a reason to love this, or is it painfully obvious? Yeah, I thought so.

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 12.19.43 PM

#3 The Golden Jewel Dress from ModCloth ($159.99). I am just so in love with this. The cut looks super flattering, the waist has a perfect bejeweled accent, and the metallic gold flowers… sigh!

34711259_003_b

#4 Archway Shelf from Anthropologie ($498). Made from hand-welded pressed metal, this incredible shelf reminds me of some kind of gorgeous church architecture or stained glass window. I would love to fill it with tiny plants and knick-knacks!

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 11.38.31 AM

#5 Fahrenheit Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans from Piperlime (on sale for $134.99). I’ve been on a skinny jean kick lately (mostly in my imagination but that’s okay) and this slate gray is just perfection.

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 12.02.28 PM

#6 Pentahedron Coasters by Molly McGrath, for sale on Koromiko ($40 for a set of 4). I absolutely love these felt coasters — the geometric shape, the varying colors. They’d be perfect for our house that I am (slowly but surely) decorating!

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 11.53.50 AM

#7 Flying Fox Bat Skull from Michele Varian ($88). This tiny skull would love its new home in my office!

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 12.11.09 PM

#8 Formula X The Ombré Glitters in Clever ($12.50 from Sephora). I’m a huge fan of the color-shifting polishes and this blue/purple combination is just stunning.

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 11.46.42 AM

#9 Liquid Leggings from Old Navy (on sale for $14.99). Old Navy has been pretty on point with their leggings lately and these polyester/spandex leggings that would make me look like I was wearing some killer skinny leather pants are no exception.

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 12.08.46 PM

#10 My Fate Is In Your Hand Necklace from Plasticland ($16). So much perfection. Give it to me!

Ohhh, Wishlist Wednesday, how I love you! Such a good excuse to browse sites that I already adore and look for awesome items. This week’s is a great one and I love how many of these items could be worn together!

401492770

#1 Wild Call Leopard Faux Fur Coat from Pixie Market ($219). I am all about being warm in the winter but why not look damn awesome, too?

Screen Shot 2015-01-14 at 1.52.48 PM

#2 Polka Dot Plimsolls from Forever 21 ($12.90). Simple, comfortable, and I’m pretty sure I’d just live in polka dots 24/7 if I could. (Wait… I can. What am I waiting for!?)

Screen Shot 2015-01-14 at 1.56.54 PM

#3 Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer from Sephora ($18-$72). I’ve heard INCREDIBLE things about this primer and I need to finally try it for myself! SPF 15, oil free, neutralizes the skin, minimizes shine, prevents makeup fading, minimizes the appearance of pores… what’s not to like?

Screen Shot 2015-01-14 at 12.39.46 PM

#4 Big Night Out Black Lace Dress from Lulu*s ($45). You can’t go wrong with an awesome black dress and I’m in love with this one. The lace and neckline combo are dreamy!

Screen Shot 2015-01-14 at 1.59.26 PM

#7 Antiqued Mushroom Earrings in Brass from Plasticland ($14). Is there anything cuter than mushrooms? No. No there isn’t.

20150114015425

#8 Easy Livin Slip from Free People ($98). I know it’s not summer yet (sigh!) but when it IS warm outside and I’m stuck inside working, I LOVE wearing stuff like this. Light and easy, and this one is so gorgeous!

Screen Shot 2015-01-14 at 1.58.27 PM

#9 The Rockstar Gray Super-Skinny Jeans from Old Navy ($34.94). Skinny jeans almost never work on me but I would kill for a great pair of skinny gray jeans… !!

Screen Shot 2015-01-14 at 1.55.04 PM

#10 Who Neutral? Wedge in Blush from ModCloth ($34.99). Wedges are by far my preference over heels and these are way too cute with the strap and this gorgeous blush pink color.

Wishlist Wednesday! #8

397060697

Welcome to WISHLIST WEDNESDAY! It’s so funny how often my groupings of items end up color coordinating. It’s not on purpose in the slightest — my only goal when curating a list is to have SOME variety (beauty, home, clothing, etc). But this collage just looks so damn pretty!

Screen Shot 2015-01-07 at 2.18.18 PM

#1 Avocado Salt & Pepper Shakers by Daina Platais, available for purchase from Uncommon Goods ($45). I absolutely LOVE avocados AND I have a pretty awesome salt & pepper shaker collection so… win win!

Screen Shot 2015-01-07 at 2.12.56 PM

#2 Iconic Maine Tote Bag from Pinecone+Chickadee ($20). Pinecone+Chickadee is an awesome Maine-based business, a collaboration between graphic designer/illustrator, Amy Teh, and her musician husband, Noah DeFilippis. They have original artwork which is silkscreened onto greeting cards, journals, apparel, and accessories with water-based, earth friendly inks. The illustrations are so damn cute and I love all of the nods to my beautiful home state!

Screen Shot 2015-01-07 at 2.46.14 PM

#3 Art Gala Printed Dress from Ruche ($44.99). I am just… so in love with this dress. The cut looks super flattering, and the pattern and colors are to die for!

Screen Shot 2015-01-07 at 2.22.50 PM

#4 Brown Herringbone Desert Wedges from TOMS (on sale for $66.75). I’m a huge fan of TOMS, both for their aesthetics and their mission. If you don’t already know, for every pair of shoes purchased from TOMS, they give a pair to a child in need. Pretty awesome, and they have some beautiful items, like these goooorgeous wedges!

Screen Shot 2015-01-07 at 2.21.36 PM

#5 Foamless Lace Bra from OYSHO (£17.99). I just love everything about this bra. The color is beautiful (I love this mint color, but it also comes in light pink and lilac), the lace is perfect, and it looks so comfortable — especially with the wide straps. Love!

Screen Shot 2015-01-07 at 2.32.04 PM

#6 Love Ballad Tunic in White from ModCloth ($39.99). I love bold, black & white prints, and this tunic looks like it could be layered with SO many outfits!

Screen Shot 2015-01-07 at 2.33.14 PM

#7 Blossom Large Rectangular Tray designed by Asta Barrington for Ary Trays, available for purchase from Gretel ($44). I don’t think I could even bear to actually put food on this gorgeous tray… I would just hang it on the wall! I love that bird especially… eep!

Screen Shot 2015-01-07 at 2.40.46 PM

#8 Holographic Psychedelic Nail Polish from FNUG (€15.00). This is just WAY TOO GOOD. I’ve seen a ton of photos of this nail polish and… it’s just too good to be true. The perfect holographic glitter and shine… swoon!!

Screen Shot 2015-01-07 at 2.19.34 PM

#9 The Alpacas Mug by Littleoddforest, available for purchase on Society6 ($15). The pink combined with those sweet alpacas… so incredible. I may just have to grab one so it can be prominently displayed in my office (holding pens or markers — I would never soil it with an actual beverage!).

screen shot

#10 Wink Wink Cross Body Bag from Plasticland ($68). Easily my favorite item on this whole list. The bag itself is vegan, leather-like material that features a holographic eye that opens and closes based on your angle — so it “winks” at onlookers! YES!!! Creep factor = 10, and I want it!

Wishlist Wednesday! #6

385808618

Welcome to WISHLIST WEDNESDAY!!! It’s pure coincidence that this one falls on Christmas Eve. I know how much Christmas can be driven by consumerism and I don’t mean to perpetuate that, but… there’s some really cool stuff out there. 🙂 Ultimately I hope you’re all spending time with awesome people, eating awesome food, and/or relaxing SO HARD… and then checking my blog when the holidays are done! Woo!

Screen Shot 2014-12-23 at 11.08.33 AM

Screen Shot 2014-12-23 at 11.12.32 AM

#2 Holographic faux leather shoes from goldenponies ($42). I didn’t know I needed holographic shoes in my life until this very moment and I’m not sure I’ll ever be the same. These bad boys are handmade to order — just give them your size and they’ll whip them up for you. Amazing.

Screen Shot 2014-12-23 at 11.05.04 AM

#3 A Lot of Cats throw pillow by Kitten Rain, available for purchase on Society6 ($20). This would conveniently match my mousepad perfectly AND could rest on the couch I hope to have in my office soon.

Screen Shot 2014-12-23 at 11.10.11 AM

#4 Pretty kitties nail decals from eevamargita ($12.51). Who wouldn’t love to have cats on their nails?

20141223111131

#5 Goodnight Moon tights from Free People ($34). Even during the winter I prefer to wear dresses — they’re just so much more comfortable and versatile and I love them. So that means I need lots of leggings and tights to go with them, and these? Oh these are just fantastic.

Screen Shot 2014-12-23 at 11.04.13 AM

#6 Donuts pouch from Paper Source ($4.95). Someone remind me why I’m not buying this right this second? Anyone? Oh yeah, because it’s two days before Christmas. Siiigh!

26864017_027_b

#7 Stella floor lamp from Urban Outfitters ($129). If you aren’t painfully aware already, I’m in the process of redoing my office a bit, and this floor lamp would fit in PERFECTLY.

Screen Shot 2014-12-23 at 11.06.52 AM

#8 Charlotte’s diamond web ring by Jennie Kwon Designs, available for purchase on Catbird ($485). Totally my style, and also available in rose gold and white gold.

Screen Shot 2014-12-23 at 11.00.42 AM

#9 Arrow buttering board from Leif ($21). Our kitchen is in serious need of an update, and this buttering board would be an amazing start.

Screen Shot 2014-12-23 at 11.02.26 AM

#10 Dorothy peep toe heels in mustard from Restricted ($62). Mustard is a color I recently have really gotten into and these heels are just TOO PERFECT.

Wishlist Wednesday! #5

380358051 (1)

Welcome to WISHLIST WEDNESDAY!!! This one’s a good one… one of my favorite collections so far. It’s so tough to look at things online and NOT buy them but… I’m willing to take the hit so you can find some fantastic items (and shops!). 😉

2318808_13540205-plwfr2_pm

#1 Bill Murray throw pillow by Replaceface ($20 on Society6). This pillow is absolutely incredible and the entire shop — filled with pillows, prints, mugs, iPhone cases, and more — features amazing celebrities like The Rock, Dave Grohl, Brad Pitt, Ricky Gervais, Tom Selleck, and so many more. If you visit one shop on this list, make it this one!

Screen Shot 2014-12-17 at 9.38.59 AM

#2 Dots mug by Priscilla Peress ($15 on Society6). I definitely don’t NEED any more mugs, but this one is so damn CUTE.

P10805402

#3 Camera pouch ($9 from Plasticland). I can picture this pouch (see what I did there?) helping to corral the millions of things floating around my purse.

il_570xN.520624087_f1yb

#4 Koa leaf necklace by KahiliCreations (available on Etsy). Such a simple but beautiful necklace.

s1495811-main-hero-300

#5 Dior Nail Glow ($25 from Sephora). I don’t always have the time (or, really, the patience) to paint my nails, but apparently after applying this “the pinks of the nails become pinker and the whites become whiter for a shining finish and healthy-glow effect”. Heck yes!

Pies_Franken_CaramelApple_Low

#6 Franken Pie ($44 from Momofuku Milk Bar). I love pie and I’ve heard incredible things about this particular bakery (located in Brooklyn). If I were to get something shipped all the way to me, I’d want to have some variety… and this pie delivers. Two slices of candy bar pie, two slices of caramel apple pie, and four slices of crack pie… I’d be in heaven.

0493573812_1_1_3

#7 Moon and star socks (£7.99 from OYSHO). Way too adorable.

plugin_rollover_images

#8 Hex ring ($430 from Bona Drag). A little pricey, but so gorgeous.

DSC_0052-590x590

#9 Cotton ball lights ($13.99 from Thailand String Lights). I need a few of these to string up in my office!

34283820_010_b

#10 Ceramic skull planter ($39 from Urban Outfitters). Probably my favorite thing on this whole list. I need more plants in my office — and in the entire house — and I’d be so psyched to use this planter!
