These yellow pillow cases fit right in with my existing textiles. A gift from my generous friend who likes to travel and has great taste! Also, someone who shies away from publicity. So, rest assured friend, I won’t blow your cover ;)
Gift shopping is something I hope to get better at when I travel.
Izmir Measuring Cups, Anthropologie. Ornamental and functional these cups are beautiful enough to have just lying around, no need to actually use them. HOWEVER, you should use them because they’re delightfully handy. I admire them for their ongoing visual appeal and usefulness. They nest for easy storage, have cute pinch spouts, markings for measuring and each is a different color and design. I use them for serving nuts and olives—I get to feel fancy without putting in the effort. (The tiniest one is for the pits.) They’d also make for perfect bathroom or dresser accessories.
I never did get to have a set of those nesting Russian dolls when I was a kid, but having these seems to have filled that void.
When it comes to buying shiz, I’m a big fan of perusing the racks at Forever 21. Their stuff is cute, affordable and, best of all, usually patterned. Like this dress I picked up today for under $25. My favorite part? The tie details on the back. ::squeal::
