1 :: It’s getting to that point where my current bag needs to be retired. I’m looking for something comfortable but not too big, preferably brown and faux-leather. The “here’s to new journeys” bag from Ruche seems to fit the bill, although I’ll probably keep scoping out Marshall’s for a while first.
2 :: When I saw Martha Stewart’s Strawberry Cake on Unruly Things earlier this week, I couldn’t believe I hadn’t tried it before. Strawberries + cake — it really doesn’t get much simpler. We’re on the edge of strawberry season here in Florida (as in, it’s almost over!) and this is a great way to put them to sweet use.
3 :: Marlise Kast-Myers’s beautiful green and white bedroom was recently featured on Decor8, and it’s a great bit of inspiration for a budget-conscious room redo. I love the mix of textures and design, and of course I’m always a sucker for vintage metal fans.
4 :: Simon Foster curates a collection of vintage record labels, and they’re such fun to scroll through! While you enjoy the array of designs, be sure to also read the names of the albums and songs–some of them are pretty funny.
5 :: This easy mini-cupcake stand DIY was featured on Papernstitch, and it looks so easy! Such a great idea for a shower or birthday party, and the stands give you plenty of freedom to decorate how you wish. (Oh, and be sure to check out the rest of the party decor–it’s incredible!)
6 :: These coral-inspired brooches from MadeByAnna are beautifully cut from perspex. They’re clean and modern but still a great detail to add to your spring cardigan or jacket!
