Meg, You Make Me Smile.

I've already confessed my love for ila Handbags and now I have one to call my own. I wanted something petite and adorable for holiday parties and special occasions, especially since I'm usually drawn to ENORMOUS bags that I try to fit my life into. This small Meg bag is just big enough to fit all the essentials for a night out.

More pictures to come...


Give Thanks!

There are a lot of things to be thankful for. Family, friends, your home, your health. Everyday we should be thankful for what we have and be sure the ones we love know how much we are thankful for them.

I am also thankful for pumpkin pie (thank you Martha Stewart)...but more so for family and friends!


The Butter Is So Butter!

I am a sucker for great stationary. I'm totally obsessed with graphic designs, vintage prints and vibrant colors. The Butter has beautiful invitations, custom stickers, stamps and mailing labels. I love them all!



I really love trousers right now. Dave is totally appalled because he compares most trousers to "mom pants" but I love the way they look and even better they are comfortable!

Salty Tart

There are many amazing bakeries in Minneapolis and St. Paul but Salty Tart has won me over! The cupcakes are to die for. From carrot to Surly Beer cupcakes, each one is a special little treat.


Mad Men

Love Mad Men even in Ken and Barbie form. I'm personally a Joan girl.


Love Holga

Just a few reminders of summer before the snow flies. Brought to you by Holga in all its chunky, plastic glory.

Hotel Fox, turning hotel rooms into pieces of art. Located in central Copenhagen. Pretty amazing.


ila Handbags

Not only do I think ila Handbags are super amazing but the creator is a friend and co-worker of mine and I love to support local designers and artists. I have just ordered my own "Meg" bag and cannot wait to show it off! You can purchase ila Handbags through her Etsy shop.

Dreery But Still Cheery.

It's chilly and raining outside, so all I can really think about are new rain boots.
