For as long as I can remember I've had a strange weakness for office supplies and paper goods. Serioulsy. Staples is one of my favorite stores- especially with the introduction of the Martha line, and new pens and stylish stationary get me waaaay too excited. So imagine my delight when I came across the Russel and Hazel site. I am DYING over the lucite accessories, and the note cards are too cute. Not only are the sayings perfect, but look at that packaging- swoon! Now if you'll excuse me- I'm off to daydream of an office stocked with R+H goods- kthxbye!

As any of you who have been following our blog now know, I have a wee bit of an obsession with Kate Spade. Girl can do no wrong in my eyes so obviously, I am smitten with the double sided wrapping paper as seen on our DIY party poppers from our Holiday Tablescape post. Too cute gold polka dots on one side and bold graphic b&w stripes on the other, this one's the cutest two-fer I've ever seen!
Around this time of year I always get excited, and no- not just for Christmas, but also for Pantone to release their color of the year. Seeing as pink and their various hues are totes my fave, I was pumped to see Radiant Orchid as the 2014 color of the year. Don't get me wrong, 2013's color Emerald was stunningly beautiful, but Radiant Orchid is more up my alley. I'm so pumped about it I'll be doing a separate post on it later but was just too excited to wait! Check out Radiant Orchid in all it's glory.
Sun exposure is dangerous... and wrinkles and sun spots don't go well with your lbd, so cool it with the tanning, ok? I'd like to introduce you to my little friend, St. Tropez (San Tro-pay). I don't like to keep beauty 'secrets' (just rude), so I had to share this with you. A natural looking tan that doesn't streak, doesn't smell, and lasts forever. For a fair skinned chica like me, its beyond life saving! Oh, and Kate Moss is their new spokesperson. Enough said.
If you love design and decor, this magazine will blow your mind. Launched in 2005, Domino built a cult following that stuck around even after it was shut down in 2009. Fast forward to 2013, and Domino relaunched! Woo hoo!! Online shopping is fully integrated into their site (not sure if that's a good thing or bad?), and their home decor ideas are modern, fresh, and totally inspiring.
Chocolate has antioxidants... right? Or something like that. Honestly, it doesn't even matter. I love love love the Lindt chocolate bars in any variety, but have worked my way up to really enjoying the extra dark, 90% Cacao bar the best. Second to that are the Roasted Almond, Hint of Sea Salt, and of course, Caramel & Sea Salt flavours.
I could barely contain myself when I stumbled upon these pop culture remixes on fab.com. As a total weirdo, I love stuff like this. These cheeky prints of Audrey, Elizabeth, and James are sure to be great conversation pieces in any home.
3. Umbra Sombrero Juicer
When you're as obsessed with lemon/lime water and sparkly water as I am, this thing is anotha' level. The mini juicer goes on your water bottle et voila, juice infused water without the mess of the pulp and seeds to clean out later. For $5 you can have one at home and one at the office for delicious water anytime! These are also great to throw in as stocking stuffers to help your peeps with a fresh start in the New Year!
