Book wall display in shabby chic boutique, The Fancy Flea Cottage Downtown Bartow FL
The loveliest little corner at The Fancy Flea Cottage in Downtown Bartow. I bought a vintage window there to use for a hand-lettered flower menu at the shop.

Gothamista shared a roundup of amazing skin care products for $10 or less; watch how quick I can fill up my Amazon cart.

Speaking of beauty on a budget, this new drugstore long-wear stick foundation is in regular rotation in my morning makeup routine; Mariah Leonard called it a dupe for the Hourglass Vanish stick foundation, and that was all I needed to give it a go.

I’d love to get into embroidery and cross-stitching as a creative evening hobby. How lovely are these floral + cactus designs?

Glass hair is the trend I didn’t know I needed in my life.

Guys, I think I may love Gwyneth Paltrow’s podcast. (I skip the Goop-y ‘wellness’ stuff and stick to the episodes featuring Gwynnie interviewing special guests.)
