Thanks to Fab, I stumbled upon albiedesigns, and I've had her Etsy shop in an open tab on my browser all week. I can't get enough of her simplicity, wordplay, and use of color. She makes me want to paint and draw all day. And fill my imaginary home with cute prints.
Have I mentioned that the more I read her website, the more I realize she's living my dream life? I need to get on her level.
First thing's first: I love my breakfast sandwiches. Like, love. Like, so much love, my boyfriend bakes biscuits on the weekend so I can have a breakfast sandwich when I roll out of bed. So, of course, when I saw this breakfast-sandwich-making-wonder, my jaw may have hit the keyboard. Maybe I drooled a little bit. But no matter. This is America, and we like our gadgets, goddamit.
Which brings me to this USB light. Obviously, I'm not the only weirdo who stays up late, tapping away at my computer, and yes, I would like a little ambience. Especially the kind that makes me feel like a mad inventor working by candlelight and/or laptop-powered-work-of-art.
Finally, the packing tape. It doesn't really make me love America any more than I already do, but it does make me love the fact that this country raises adorably hipster package designers who think of things like cleverly created packing tape.
HGTV's new Folio app is only feeding my addition to all things that make me drool and daydream about my future home. My favorite part of the app is that you can save your favorite room photos for future reference, so when I actually have the funds to make my life shabby chic, I'll have endless inspiration. And, I mean, it's free, so... get on it.
I've been obsessed with Satya's delicate yoga and Hindu-inspired jewelry ever since I worked in a yoga studio, surrounded by oms, namastes, and Sanskrit. At the time, though, I couldn't afford the pricey jewelry on a part-time hourly wage. Plus, I was constantly surrounded by the good vibes of the yogis. But now that I'm fully immersed in corporate culture, I feel a need for a little Satya in my life. I mean, how badass are these snakes? And I can't forget: 10% of proceeds from the colored silk bracelets will benefit Home of Hope in Africa, a charity that provides physical, educational, and holistic wellbeing for exploited girls in South Africa.
