These days my email box is inundated with subject headings like “FLASH SALE” or “TODAY ONLY” or “GET AN ADDITIONAL 12% OFF!”… temptations from my favorite retailers. I often get sucked in and click over. So today I’m going to tempt YOU with some of my favorites! (I included affiliate links for your shopping convenience.) I always attempt to get shopping done early… we’ll see how I do this year!
I drink coffee a lot. Granted, it’s been decaff more often than not with pregnancy/ breastfeeding, but… having a cool coffee cup to fill while I walk kids to school or hop in the car to run to Home Depot is key. I’m way into woodgrain this year so this coffee cup is my jam.
2. Cake Stand
I don’t reeeeeaaallllly do a lot of baking. But I would probably whip up some Betty Crocker just to have this cake stand out on the counter.
Pom poms. Scarf. Need I say more? (Also… LOVING the navy blue polka dots!)
Can we talk about the combo of shiny metallic and boho texture on this clutch aaaaaannnnnnd a TASSEL? This also appears to be large enough to actually hold something which is key for me… I’ve learned the hard way that any time I have to take out credit cards and cash to squeeze into a tiny little clutch, I forget and end up at the store the next day with a cart full of stuff and no dough.
Yep. My love for pompoms runs deep. I have a similar pompom clip on my favorite everyday bag and love the way they add a funky bit of color to a normally traditional leather tote.
Just because. How cool would it be to have awesome handwriting and be able to make your own labels for things instead of going to the internet or etsy?! Imagine how beautiful your grocery list could be each week!
This fine fella is coming home with me. I’m thinking it might be fun in the playroom which I think will be next on the chopping block over here at Ciburbanity national headquarters. I love the whimsy and of course… the tassels.
I’m pretty confident that I can wear this over my paint splattered coat and it will fancy me up enough to function this holiday season! I’ll be that fancy DIY lady from now on…
Full disclosure, I’ve managed to kill these guys too. But I keep trying. I love them. Basically, you just leave these out and mist them once in a while. And that’s all they need. (See how I added on to my Thanksgiving tablescape here!)
10. Initial Earrings
My friend Page is a jewelry genius. Check out her site for her whole fun collection (and for those of you near NYC, visit her pop-up shop December 16-24!)
11. Vegan Tote
I found a clutch in this same rich blue leather the other day at Goodwill… I love this color for winter. Neutral but a little cheerier than the standard brown or black!
12. Acrylic Mugs
Acrylic is key for this family since a glass is dropped about 1.8 times a meal. Aren’t the lovely colors of these the best? Hypothetically, chilled sauvignon blanc would probably look pretty nice in these too.
13. Target Pillow
I had to put one Christmas item on this list. Raise your hand if you always wanted one of these wagoneers!
14. Laser Measure
OK… this one is a gadget, but it is like stepping into the future! I was lucky enough to receive this from Ryobi this summer, but it’s incredible. They have a whole pile of these little gizmos that operate off your phone via an app (Ryobi Phone Works) and this one is my favorite. There is literally a laser pointer and where ever it lands, the distance is shown on your phone. Throw away your tape measures, ladies… there’s a new kid in town!
15. Down Sweater
Last but not least, do you all know Uniqlo? We had one near us in the city and it’s cool, clean, affordable… shopping trifecta. I picked up this inexpensive lightweight down sweater while I was still pregnant last spring and couldn’t wear it until now. I’ve used it all fall as either a sweater or as a jacket in the morning when the temps are still a little cool.
Have you all started holiday shopping? Do you take advantage of Black Friday or Cyber Monday Sales? One month from today Christmas Eve! Just sayin’…
