Bloomin’ Yellow


In My Garden (photo: Buckle Button Zip)

Inspired by the budding yellow daffodils in my garden this morning and the bright colors that are a signature trend for Spring 2011, let’s take a look at some sunny options that are ready for show right now:

Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Slim Wallet

Longchamp 'Darshan Flowers - Small' Tote

Anthropologie Creased Swirls Corset Top

Kenneth Cole Reaction "Shine Through"

West Elm Modernist Bowl

Modcloth Canary Your Things Mug

I’ll take one of each please!

Ending the post with some lovely words that came on the end of my tea bag:

I am beautiful,

I am bountiful,

I am blissful.


Light the night

When the temperature is downright frigid, it makes me want to stay home and be cozy. I pull on my soft, thick layers, make a good cup of coffee and light a candle, so the whole house smells delicious. The Voluspa Fleurs de Fete is my favorite scent and is heavenly (even the guys in my family like it). It burns for 100+ hours and creates a welcoming and warm scent, that’s not at all overpowering.

Look for candles in pretty tins or glass containers like these, to either give or get this year:

Voluspa Santiago Huckleberry candle, $18

LAFCO Myrrh candle, $55

red flower Himalayan Larch candle, $34

Thymes Frasier Fir candle, $26

If you’re looking for a great cup of coffee beyond the corner cafe, one of my favorites, Zen Blend by the Organic Coffee Co. was voted Best Ground Coffee by Real Simple magazine. I also love the French Vanilla flavor too.
