Seasonal Bag Change

Each season brings new colors. Fall and winter bring more darks and solids, while spring and summer bring bright colors and popping patterns, and all four seasons share the neutrals. Well spring is fast approaching and it’s time to change it up. Out with my gray and mauve bag and in with this beautiful blue one (insert heart eyes). I have never had a bag this color and I am in love! My boyfriend’s mom got this one for me for Christmas from Charming Charlie (she obviously knows me) and I have been waiting for the opportune time to start using it, as in now! I love the fact that it is square and structured and can stand up by itself. It can be so annoying to have a floppy purse, they slouch down and it is impossible to find things in it. This one I can dig in it while it is sitting in its seat and find everything just fine. Not to mention I also love the different compartments. The purse I was previously using, although very cute, was just one giant compartment and I gave myself rage everyday digging through it for my keys or lip gloss. This square one is also great for work because it is huge! Check it out, it is linked here! (buuuuut Charming Charlie doesnt have this color online but they have a BEAUTIFUL mint or “Seafoam” and super pretty light coral)

PS- in the course of finding this bag on the Charming Charlie website, I found about three other bags I want now… so maybe stay tuned?

Brightening for Spring!

In my last post Patio Ideas I told you about my ideas for my patio, those ideas will go into effect next weekend when I actually get to paint my chairs. But until then, I made a minor upgrade to my kitchen table (which for those of you who have actually been to my place know that my kitchen table is no where near my kitchen but in my living room- I know it sounds strange but weirdly works? #apartmentlife). Anyways, I had bought new gray placemats and towels but hadn’t found gray oven mitts yet. I tried the Dollar Tree while I was out today and found these instead!


They are much brighter in person but how cute are they?! I even got matching placemats. So in all I spent $6 on two new place mats, two new dish towels, and 3 oven mitts. I go to the Dollar Tree for two reasons: One- I’m on a budget and why buy something for $5 when you can get them for $1? Am I right? Two- living with a boy who attempts to cook his way means a lot of ruined oven mitts. Like can’t you pull your frozen pizza out of the oven without getting melted cheese all over the oven mitt? Or please don’t lay your spoon covered in food on top of the oven mitt. See my point? If I get these cheap ones I don’t mind tossing them and getting new ones.

I’m excited to slowly brighten things up for Spring so be sure to check back next weekend to see the patio! Also, thanks to Amanda at Glitter it Gold, I went to Trader Joes to find sunflowers and got these for $3.99!
