Holy Swoon!

Happy Monday, chickadees! Take a look at what made me squeal, "Holy Swoon!" while perusing the web this weekend:

[Joplin Velvet Sofa]: This couch is the bee's knees! I could just picture this beauty inside my someday dream  walk-in closet [or shall we say "room"].  Add some cheeky pillows and a colorful pom-pom throw on it and we would be sitting nice and pretty, gal pals! Hopefully it wouldn't be the collector of button ups like our current settee is! Speaking of which, I should probably hang those up today! That's what happens when you have one day of wardrobe insanity and you absolutely loathe everything that you try on. It'll get ya!

[Zip Pouch]: My gal pals can agree when I say I am a complete and utter bag lady. No shame! I love each and every one of them.   I have tried to separate myself from a few throughout the years but every time I am about to let one go, I have a total regretsy moment and put it right back in it's designated space.  They are all currently hanging on a coat rack, but I am afraid if I add one more it just might plop over! I am officially putting myself on a bag freeze for a while but when I saw this little pouch, I totally grinned from ear to ear. I happened to show my dear 'ol honeybee this weekend and all he could do was laugh and shake his head at me. What can I say! I like my bags!

Rugby Striped Bin]: This is probably one of the most over-pinned storage pieces I have laid my pretty eyes on while perusing Facebook but I just had to share it with y'all! I was on the hunt for storage bins for my materials this year so of course I had to stop in and check these out.  They would be perfect for any space in your home or classroom.  I took full advantage of their Happy Organized Home Sale and snatched up a few for work. A gals gotta work in style!

[Textural Raglan Sweater]: Confession: I have stopped in and tried this sweater on at least three times in the last month. By now the sales associates recognize me and probably think I am completely crazypants. I really want to convince myself that I need it.  It is one of the most comfortable sweaters I have put on lately and the quality is fabulous.  I can just see this sweater being a complete layering staple in my closet this fall.  Don't believe me? Try it for yourself! Maybe then you can convince me that I need it just as much as you do! 

[Salt the Seagul]: This cheeky print makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.  I would love to hang it up in one of our bathrooms.  If you have yet to check out Pei Designs new products lately, do yourself a favor and take a little peak.  Warning: You will want everything!

[Word Trinket Tray]: One can never have too many trinket trays in my book! They can add a little pop of whimsy in any room, including your office! Add a stash of gold paperclips and you are good to go! 

[Thin Mint Cookies]: I cannot tell you how many times I have been relaxing on the couch lately and all I can think about is cookies.  Gimme the cookies! Chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies- I love them all! Just the other night, I was rummaging through my Pinterest page and stumbled upon this recipe for Thin Mint cookies.  I jumped off my couch as quickly as I could to grab a snazzy pen + notepad to make my grocery list must-haves! Listen you lovely people, this recipe takes less than fifteen minutes to make and is vegan friendly. Don't you worry you non-vegan eaters, I think you will find this recipe just as scrumptious as I do. I mean, who doesn't love Thin Mint cookies? Am I the only gal who eats almost an entire box to herself after getting completely sucked into buying cookies from the Girl Scout Troops? They get me every time. Not even kidding. 

[Framecraft Pendant Necklace]: Longer pendants have been my jam lately when it comes to necklaces and this one is a total must-have. I love all things tortoise and this one has it's own twist on the classic piece! 

[Confetti Pencil Set]:  I might as well add these to my Back To School Must-Haves because I am totally smitten over this pencil set.  We all know that pink + red is a favorite color combination around here! I would feel so fancy taking data with these pretty pencils.  They are simply adorable!

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