I’m crazy in love…with Jump from Paper Bags!

2 Apr

Made of polyester and/or canvas, these bags look like they came straight out of a comic strip. The line is called Jump from Paper™  and created by Taipei-based design duo, Chay Su and Rika Lin.

Slogan: “Breaks away from boredom and takes you to a playful and imagination tour!”

I’ve never seen anything like this before. Have you? I just LOVE them. Creative, unique, different, colorful, CUTE. Yes. All of the above.

Check out their website for the full line here.




Maggie’s on Market St.

29 Mar

Made a trip to Maggie’s on Market Street in the Woodlands this past weekend. The store is small, quaint and full of treasures. I managed to snap a few pictures while I was there.

Mini candles filled the store

Soap boxes. Great idea for a gift!

Heavenly scents

Another gift idea!

The Little Book of Saints

Plates filled with sayings

Oyster Shell Sphere

Old Fashioned Wine Bottle Openers.

Got Etsy’d away

Yes. I was looking for ONE item and then I was sucked into the world of ETSY. I had to stop myself before I was carried even farther away.

I found some neat stuff though!

Something  you’d find at Anthro but for a reasonable price!

I’m in the holiday spirit

22 Nov

Yes I am! I was browsing through the Macy’s Holiday Catalog and the new Michael Kors purse caught my eye. I think I’ll be buying myself my own present this year.

Happy Friday!

Here are my picks for the weekend.

Have a splendid one!

What a week! I’m so thankful

18 Nov

This week has been stressful. My dad was rushed to the hospital and was finally released last night. He is doing OK, but there are more follow-ups to come.

I’m relieved he is home, though.

I apologize for missing blog posts this week, but I’m sure you can understand. My brain and heart have calmed down and I’m looking forward to the beautiful weekend ahead of me.


Bake THESE delicious-looking Pumpkin Cookies with Brown Butter Icing from my go-t0 baking blog, Brown Eyed Baker. I’ll post my own “How-To” Sunday. Can’t wait.

On another note, I’ve been reading a lot of posts about how companies and brands are decorating too early for the holidays. I LOVE  the early decor! Christmas comes and goes too quickly in my opinion. So the earlier the better for me.

Second on my list: Maybe  squeeze in some DIY time and make my Personal Holiday Greeting Cards for 2011!

Well because it is Friday and Lovely out, here are a few of my favorite things this week:

For the foodies: Salt + Magic Shaker Wands.

Make your meal MAGICAL!

Caroline Bootie from Target.

Because it is getting a bit chilly out.

I’m stumped.

What shoes would you pair with this dress?

I think it needs a blazer, too.

Ari’s Pick: November Weekend

11 Nov

One last post before the weekend begins.

I tried signing up for Polyvore, but there were issues with the login. SO, I made one myself.

Because of this weeks “Gold” theme, check out my “Ari’s Pick” for a Golden Night Out.

What are your plans for the weekend?

xoxo, Ari.
