4 Totes You’ll Use All Spring + Summer Long

Culinary Totes from Àplat
These smartly designed bags are meant to carry casserole dishes and serving bowls, in other words perfect for picnics and potlucks. They also design a great selection of totes meant to carry bread, bottles of wine, and your garden’s bounty.

 

Waxed Canvas Market Tote from Newton Supply Co.
If you’re a farmer’s market aficionado, this tote is for you. Waxed canvas is such a fantastic material because it’s not only durable but water resistant as well. Carry this along on your Saturday jaunts to carry everything from fresh stems to bottles of milk.

 

Terrazzo Tote Bag from Ferm Living
No doubt by now you’ve caught on to the terrazzo trend that’s sweeping the decor sector, and this sizable tote carries it over into fashion. The 100% organic cotton bag is a good one to carry along on vacation or tuck into your purse for unexpected purchases.

 

Picnic Tote Blanket from Gessato
This tote pulls double-duty as a fully functioning bag and picnic blanket! Carry along your lunchtime spread or laptop, then spread it open to reveal a spacious blanket with a soft layer cushioning and water-repellent layer for the grass or beach.

March Favorites

1/ Birthday Box: Twenty Birthday Cards
This box of twenty birthday cards created by five different artists has saved my butt not once, but twice this month alone. Every single one is gorgeous and printed on thick paper stock, so it won’t look like you forgot to pick up a card.

2/ Case Study Table Top Diamond with Wood Stand
I adore Case Study’s ceramics and own about five of their planters. This one is the perfect size for a kitchen table or countertop.

3/ Petit Collage 5pc Mealtime Set (Dinosaurs)
Petit Collage offers the best modern designed children’s toys and decor, and it’s al sustainably made. I picked up a few things for two of my cousins’ birthdays this month, including this mealtime set. Get 15% off your purchase with code DESIGNCRUSH.

4/ Kristen Ess The One Signature Shampoo and Conditioner
I took some travel sizes of these along when I had to travel last month and really fell in love with the way they made my hair feel. The scent is more powerful than most hair products I’ve tried, but I don’t dislike it and feel like it helps cover any second day hair smell.

5/ MyChelle Lip Hints
These conditioning lip balms have been valuable players in keeping my dry winter lips moisturized. The light tints are a nice added bonus.

6/ Sqwishful Pop Up Sponges
These guys are 100% renewable plant-based, 100% biodegradable, and compressed to reduce their carbon footprint. And they come in a fun shape.

7/ Striped Knit Crop Jumpsuit
Wish you could wear your pajamas all day? Get this jumpsuit. Not only does it make you look super pulled together, but I guarantee lots of compliments will follow. (Note: I’m 5’2″ and it fits to my ankles, not cropped.)

Carrot Cake 15 Ways

To me carrot cake is irrevocably tied to spring as the perfect transitional sweet – am I alone here? It’s like the hope of warm weather that’s to come all tied up with a bow and (in most cases) a layer of cream cheese icing. The classic flavors involved can be incorporated into more than just cake too, delicious dishes like scones, oatmeal, and a gin fizz to name a few. Check out all fifteen takes on carrot cake below!
