This + That

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.

Man Repeller dives into what sets you off, according to your Myers Brigg personality type.

C keeps asking me what I want for my birthday next month, and I’m thinking this structured leather tote may be the perfect thing; it’s been on my wish list since last Christmas but it keeps selling out!

My version of folding a fitted sheet involves rolling it up in frustration and shoving it in the dark corner of the linen closet; Lauren Conrad has a much better way.

Camille Styles posted helpful tips for how to make reading a priority, and why you should. My Kindle Paperwhite is always in my handbag, with the intention that if I have a few quiet moments, I can sneak in a page or two. I’m definitely guilty of reaching for my phone to fill that downtime more often, but I’m working on it.

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.)

I'm a small town lady from the sunshine state with an affinity for bookstores, beauty counters and unfussy style. I spend my days running my flower shop, and my nights blogging about what I love and what I wear. (Or watching Netflix and drinking wine.)
