Great Blog Posts to Read

I’ve wondered how I would handle a day at sea on a cruise because of my claustrophobia struggles. It Starts With Coffee’s post on the dos and don’ts at sea gives me more confidence that I’ll be having so much fun, I won’t have to worry about it!

Susannah talked about why blogging in the PNW is so hard. Sometimes you get photos like the one I’ve featured above after a hike through the beautiful mountains. But most of the time you end up with dreary photos while everyone else is bragging about the natural light they get every day from 9-3. Yes, I’m jealous!

Head over to Sunny with a Chance of Sprinkles for a list of blogs you need to check out! I love finding new blogs and there are some great finds on this list! (Plus, she features Chelsea from The Girl Who Loved to Write, who we love around here!)

“Nude” isn’t a color I’ve ever associated with weddings, but Victoria’s post about the nude wedding trend is so stunning that if I were planning a wedding right now (I’m not), I’d stop everything to change one of my focus colors to this elegant shade!

I just bought a new desk at IKEA, but if I didn’t, I’d be seriously considering this DIY Corner Desk tutorial at Shanty 2 Chic!

Around WMSB: Check out the before and after of my kitchen/bathroom floors!

I splurged this week on: Like Mink Clinique’s eyeshadow.* – $20.50 (and it will last you FOREVER)


I’ve been using the same duo for years. This Christmas I got a gift pack of pinks and purples but I really needed some neutrals. I LOVE the way it looks!

I’ve got my eye on: This Pineapple Pencil Holder from Anthropologie – $16


My current pen organization at work is to throw them in my drawer organizer until I can’t find any. Move my drawer organizer to get all of the pens that fell to the side or underneath it. Start all over. This pineapple would keep them all in  one place AND remind me of summer. Win-Win!
