I love window shopping, especially because it’s so much easier on my wallet. Plus, when I actually need something, I know where to go. Here are a few of my current favorites from my ‘virtual window shopping.’ Cheers!
- Winter’s Perch Mirror, $148.00–Add a nature element with this dainty mirror.
- Handpainted Vieque Canister, $24.00–Store your odds and ends, like Q-tips and cotton balls, in a charming way.
- Rosebud Salve, $6.00–Though this is an amazing lip balm, it’s also perfect for using on dry elbows and dry cuticles.
- Molton Brown Naran Ji Hand Wash and Hand Lotion, $56.00–As a compulsive hand washer, I need something that not only cleans by hands, but keep them soft. These do both, plus smell heavenly.
- Porcelain Flower Vase, $19.95 (on sale)–Usually, I feel compelled to fill a vase with flowers, but these are are so beautiful that you don’t need to.
- Le Bain French Porcelain Tray, $25.00–Store your little treasures in this tray so you can actually find them when you need them.
- Jo Malone Candle, $65.00-75.00–These Jo Malone candles come in beautiful and classic design, and smell amazing.
- Cinnamon Mint Toothpaste, $10.50–Brushing is no longer a task with this fun flavor in an equally fun tube.
I love mirrors because of how they reflect light and can instantly make a small space appear larger (which is especially important in a small space). And they shouldn’t be relegated to entryways (where they are so helpful as the last checkpoint for anything unsightly before heading out!) only, but rather used throughout the house in places such as…

I’m relatively new to the whole interior design game. Sure, I’ve painted my room in at least half of the colors of the rainbow in high school and went through the “I love Ikea” phase in college, but now that I’m a certified adult (ahem!), my design sensibilities have also changed. For example, I actually care about what my home’s entrance looks like. It’s the first (and usually the last) impression of a person’s home and should give the visitor a glimpse into the style they should expect from the remainder of the house (regardless of the size). Here are a few styles I absolutely love and serve as my inspiration for my future entrance hall. Cheers!

I absolutely love flowers! Yes, they die within a few days, but for those days they brighten my home and make me super happy. Most of the time, I’m just happy buying one kind of flowers (lately, it’s been pink Snapdragons) and placing them in a white porcelain jug. However, for special occasions, I want something unique. That’s where a centerpiece arrangement with succulents and flowers comes in. I feel an arrangement with just succulents might be boring (though it might last a bit longer), so to add color, I use different large flowers in the color theme of my choice. Choose succulents that look like flowers (such as the one above) so as to complement the flowers. Also, vary the colors, shapes, and sizes.Although you can choose any colorful flowers, it’s best to go with big flowers that can compete with the large and sturdy succulents. Also, do try to stick to a color theme (generally based on light or dark colors). You can use roses, peonies, hydrangeas, and dahlias in different colors and shades. To give the centerpiece a more rustic look, add an unexpected element, such as figs and a sprig or two. Finally, add 2-3 types of leaves in different shades of green to keep the centerpiece interesting.Have an awesome day! Cheers!
