Curated Sunday Shopping

Happy Sunday!

Remember when Etsy first came out?  Cute, crafty and very granola.  Have you looked recently?  It is amazing, full of established artisans, and brands it has become my go to place to shop.

Other that amazing finds, why do I love shopping there?

  • Reasonable prices (there is no middle man)
  • Customer ratings for the shops and products
  • Tons of custom options
  • Great customer service
Because I feel so strongly about Etsy, shopping, and styling yourself based on what you (not just what you could find in stores) see yourself becoming.  I started curating a shop from all my favorite vendors including home, apparel, accessories, art and more.  While editing from my favorite vendors I had two things on my list: 
  1. Make it easy for any one that craves style, creating a one stop shop for all my followers
  2. Everything must be stand alone, you don't need to buy a whole look just start collecting pieces you love.

Some of the vendors currently in my shop:
Jenn Lee Designs
Paper & Clay Studio
The Anatolian
Pigeon Toe Ceramics
Petit JuJu
Betsy & Iya

I am always editing more items for the shop so keep checking back...

9 Favorite Apps for Everyday

Time is a finite commodity.  As such we always want more, and try to "get more" out of it.  How do you do that?  Multitasking.  For me it means getting things done faster and more conveniently so I can move on tho the next task.  What can be more convenient than your phone, these days we use it for everything and lets face it, it is never more than 3 feet away from your hand.  I keep my eyes open and routinely research the best apps, downloading and trying them out.  If the interface is clean, simple, and I see value it would add to my home screen then I keep it.  Here are my 9 favorite apps that I use most everyday to save me time, while doing more.

  1. Everest
  2. Pinterest
  3. Moda Operandi
  4. Photo Collage Factory
  5. Blogger
  6. Pulse
  7. VSCO cam
  8. Uber
  9. PicLab
