Holy Swoon!

Happy Monday, chickadees! Hope your holiday weekend was filled with cocktails, sunnies, and jazzy sparklers! Take a look at what made me squeal, "Holy Swoon!" while perusing the web this weekend!

[Bright Sparklettes]: These are adorable and make me feel giddy just looking at them! Wouldn't they be such a treat at your next get-together with your gal pals? Who says you need a special occasion to use these pretties? Sign me up and I'll bring a bag full o'fun! 

[ShopBando Planner]: When ShopBando posted on Instagram last week that they had planners for pre-sale, I literally jumped out of my seat! The dogs barked, shot straight up from their mid-day naps, and Linus our cat b-lined it off of the couch.  Is it sad that this was one of my highlights from last week? ShopBando's cheeky products always add a little sunshine to my day! The thought of using this for work this year makes the end of the summer not seem so bad after all. 

[Bad Taste Quote Print]: Diana Vreeland is in my top list of favorite favorite fashion icons. She is the cutest and let's face it, the gal could work the camera! This quote has always been a personal favorite of mine.  I think I know of just the perfect spot for it in our office, or should I say, converted closet. 

[The Filthy Liar Drink Mixer]: I hate to admit, when it comes to adult beverages, I am quite the snob. It's shamefully true. The thought of beer makes me cringe and I blame it on my college days at Ohio University. Too many wild nights I tell ya! [Sorry, Mom!] These days, I find myself drinking Mojitos, Gin, and dare I say Jack [who am I?]. This mixer is said to be somewhat fruity and mixes well with Gin and a lime.  Let's not forget to mention how fabulous the packaging is? Swoon!

[Round Folding Table]: I just love this little folding table! It comes in a variety of different colors but I just couldn't resist this particular one. I could style this one perfectly for outdoor cocktail dates! Wouldn't you agree?

[Lovely Card]: I have been eyeing this card for a while now.  It's the perfect card to send to anyone on your list.  Everyone is lovely in their own way and could use a little postal pick me up! 

[Travel Balloon]: I have had the travel itch all summer long.  Since my honeybee recently got a new job, we aren't able to take a vacation this summer due to new hire policies.  It's a drag and causes me to day dream about traveling all day, every day.  My choice of travel varies from day to day.  I have never been out west [think Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Austin] so that is on my list.  I also want to visit Maine.  In a perfect world, I would spend my entire summer across the country exploring, but I think Max would miss me way too much! We recently booked a trip to Chicago for Labor Day.  I just love Chicago.  Any suggestions on restaurants [vegan friendly!] or must-do's would be appreciated! I have been there several times but this will be our first time going together. We are super excited!

[Small Sarra Cuff in Neon Pink]: Loren Hope carries the most beautiful jewelry and I love that they are made in the USA.  This cuff is darling! I think I would stare at it all day long if I wore it.  

[Navy Anchors Pillow]: Caitlin's textiles are absolutely gorgeous. She knows how to mix color and patterns so perfectly without looking juvenile. It's a wonderful way to bring a little happiness to any space.  She even offers small swatches for purchase on her website. So perfect for those who are interested in adding a little pep to their space but want to test the waters first! 

Hope this lovely loot brought a smile to your face! Now get out there and show Monday what'cha got!


  1. Love these picks, especially that adorable pillow!:)


    1. Isn't that pillow just adorable? I am in love with all of her textiles! You must check them out! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I think I might start swooning over everything you are swooning over! I pre-ordered the bando planner last week & can not wait to get it in the mail. & i love the folding table. DC actually has them placed in certain areas in ALL different colors. So much fun!

    1. Hooray! That planner is just fabulous! I cannot wait to swoon over all of the detail inside of it! Enjoy your blogger weekend in Atlanta! I can't wait to follow along!

  3. I love all the color here- especially the table. It looks like the ones at Pistacia Vera, which always brighten my day :)

    1. I agree! Maybe that's what I was drawn to it. The tables at Pistacia are part of the reason I love visiting! Aren't they just so cheerful?
