Fab Finds at The World Market Grand Opening

Last week, I told you guys how excited I was about the World Market PA Grand Opening!  Well, let me tell you now… It didn’t disappoint!  I had such a great time attending and got to hang out with a bunch of my favorite local bloggers.  I thought it would be fun to give you a peek inside my evening AND my shopping bag- I got some great stuff!

World Market had a fun Photo Booth set up for the grand opening guests, so of course we had to jump in and have a little fun before shopping.  If you don’t know all of these ladies, you’ll want to check them out for sure!

After our Photo Booth shenanigans, I beelined it over to the clothing and accessories section.  I had vacation on the brain and knew they’d have some awesome accessories for our trip to Costa Rica in a few weeks!

There were a bunch of adorable totes that would have been perfect as a beach bag, but this one was my favorite because of the leather straps! I can’t wait to fill it with magazines and books- got any good recommendations?

This pieced headband also caught my eye… I have naturally curly hair, but unfortunately it doesn’t turn into beachy waves… it’s more like frizz central, so headbands and top knots are essential!

This floppy hat will be perfect to keep the sun off my face. It only took me 32 years, but I finally figured out that the sun will give me wrinkles… Too bad I spent decades “sun bathing” with oil. The damage is done, but at least I’ll feel more mature and wise while wearing this cute hat!

The little zipper pouch was actually from the office accessories area, but I thought it would be perfect for sunblock, chapstick, and my phone! The snarky sentiment was meant for me!

After getting all my vacation essentials, I headed over to the bath area and picked out these vintage looking soap and lotion bottles for my bathroom makeover!  I’m SO excited to share this makeover with you later this year- I know all the sneak peeks might be annoying, but I promise this series will be worth the wait!

I also picked up a few cute baskets that I’m planning to use in some upcoming makeovers, but I can’t show you those yet! I got the same basket as Christina, and love how she styled it in her home office.

I’d say it was a pretty successful (and fun) shopping trip… the first of many to the new World Market location!  I’m actually headed there this weekend to grab some accessories for a dining room makeover I’m working on!

Pantone’s 2016 Color of the Year: Rose Quartz & Serenity


It's that time of year again when Pantone reveals their favorite color, but this year they couldn't choose just one... Pantone’s 2016 Colors of the Year… Rose Quartz and Serenity.   I have to admit, when the Pantone Colors of the Year for 2016 were announced, my first thought was baby shower gone wrong, but after researching different ways to incorporate the colors into everyday spaces, I've come to think otherwise. via Sure, these colors are soft and pretty, and I would totally try ...
