MaeMae Paperie.

I become unapologetically excited when I come across a new-to-me stationery shop. Meet MaeMae Paperie. I’ve fallen for the Walter card set in all of its pastel glory in a big way. {via The Bright Side Project}



The photography. That model. The collection. Current/Elliott is spot-on casual perfection for a carefree summer.


House of Dots.

House of Dots purveys some killer vintage-inspired frocks, but what really strikes me is their incredible site concept and design. Here are a few captures, but you’ll need to swing by for yourself to get the full effect. {via Love. Obsess. Inspire.}


Sweet & Saucy Shop.

Although I’m nowhere near Long Beach, California I thought I’d show off Sweet & Saucy Shop anyway. Their custom desserts look beyond delectable and I’m drooling over their gorgeously designed site. If you’re in the area swing by and say hello to owner/head pastry chef Melody Brandon. And don’t forget to pick up a treat for my sweet tooth, too!


Clare Owen.

I love bright colors, but lately I’m really drawn to muted, softer tones. Like in illustrator Clare Owen’s art. Very pretty work by a very talented lady.


Villainess Soaps.

Villainess Soaps has some of the coolest bath products I’ve seen. Not to mention some pretty great packaging and website design going on for it. Some of my faves…

Antihero perfume oil

Crushed Whipped!

Gloop Tarts!


I Love You But…

I love the honesty behind I Love You But… because every single one of us has been there at one point or another. I used to date a guy who said “Uhhh” all the time and it killed me. In fact, it became a deal-breaker.

This is a picture book about the moment in a relationship when you realize you don’t love someone completely, because there is one little thing that keeps bothering you. When it bothers you so much it actually makes you physically cringe, you know it’s time to say; ‘I love you but…’
