Recent Acquisitions II

Here are a few things I’ve been loving lately. Some of these were late holiday presents, and some are just things I picked up myself. And one I even won!

 Sequin J from Twisted Twig on Etsy. And look at her adorable business cards:

My new Kate Spade Carmela! I love the soft, soft leather and the gold hardware, plus the fact that you can wear it crossbody, with the long strap, or carry it by the little handle. Should I be buying Kate Spade purses right now? Probably not. But A., it was (still is!) on major sale (awesome). And B:
It has polka dotted lining. I think you see my point.
My Kate Spade planner, which I won in Allyson’s blog giveaway! So fun to win something, and something so fab. It matches perfectly with my new moleskine notebooks. And look at Allyson’s adorable personalized Mimosas in the Morning card:
Love that! Thanks Allyson!
Kind of feel like Superman wearing this shade of blue (or I guess Wonder Woman!).
J. Crew purchases-Contrast stripe tee, v-neck, navy bangle, thin bangles, spike bracelet (not online)
Hope everyone has a lovely Valentines Day!
