Little Love Notes

you me oui print flowers floral - the printed arrow

Dear Pinterest, thank you so much for introducing me to lovely little online gems like The Painted Arrow.  I am in love with all of her sweet floral prints, namely this “You Me Oui” print.

Dear design gurus/fans/general-appreciators, I need your advice.  I’m in the thick of decorating our new place and I’m torn between so many looks.  But for today, I’m having indecisive lamp syndrome.  Which gold floor lamp do you fancy?  The Stella Floor Lamp from Urban Outfitters (on sale for $99) or the Julian Apothecary Floor Lamp from Ballard Designs (also $99)?

Dear C. Wonder Store, stop being so cute!  Oh who am I kidding?  Keep being cute!  And send tiny gold rope knot stacking rings my way.

Dear foodies, watch Elettra’s Goodness.  Basically a fun new video series from Vogue, Elettra visits with actors, actresses, models, and tastemakers to help them make their favorite dish in the kitchen, and of course, to chit chat.  And I love it!  (Thank you, Victoria, for introducing me to the series.) {Follow along on Vogue’s YouTube Channel (where there’s also more behind the scenes footage).}

Dear Madewell, thank you for helping a darker-side-loving girl out and introducing the little black summer dress.  I’m in love.

Dear self-doubters (myself included), take five minutes and read the article, Does the Word Need your Dream.  (Big thanks to Meg for posting this to her Facebook page).  And if your week needed a little extra motivation, this article by Jess Lively on HuffPost Women was just the kick in the butt I needed.  Per Jess: “It’s time to stop reading someone else’s success story and start writing our own.”

Dear roasted strawberry and toasted coconut popsicles, where have you been all my life?

Dear Ikea, I’m coming for you this weekend – don’t let me down!

    Love the painted arrow I can’t decide which print to get. PS I love the Stella Floor Lamp from Urban Outfitters the best.

      Agreed – all of the prints are so pretty! And I think I’m leaning towards the UO lamp too. 🙂

  2. The Painted Arrow is so amazing, isn’t it??

    I’m off to read the suggested articles – I can always use some inspiration in my life! 🙂

  3. Love C. Wonder. Wish we had a shop here, but then again maybe not! I would be in there all the time.

    We’re redoing our living room and the Julian floor lamp has got a spot in our place!

      Oooh I can’t wait to see the finished room!

      Aww thank you! It’s fun writing them too. 😉
