Bean Boot KeyChain

I found the most exciting thing today…a Bean Boot Key Chain! ¬†Can we talk about how incredibly cute it is??

Baby bean boots!! TOO CUTE

via bellesbourbonsandbowties, because I like her picture better than mine ūüôā

Yesterday I stopped in a thrift store and saw it sitting on a table and instantly freaked out. ¬†It has little tiny laces and it even has the same logos written in the same places on the boot. ¬†I probably won’t use it as an actual key chain because I think it is way too cute for that. ¬†I will more than likely use it as a decoration on my desk at home or put it somewhere in my apartment. ¬†Any suggestions for what I should do with it??




Apartment Styling

When I graduated and moved out of my parent’s house, I took all of my stuff with me. ¬†I mean everything. ¬†I thought that was what you were supposed to do. ¬†My mom recently brought it to my attention that I did not have to do that and I could bring some of it home if I wanted to. ¬†In fact, she encouraged it. ¬†So I packed up all of my Precious Moments, high school pictures and other things from my pre-graduate life. ¬†This left my apartment looking bare and totally unpersonalized. ¬†So I decided to start scouring the pages of Pinterest to find ideas and inspiration for how I can make my apartment my own bachelorette pad.

I came up with a list of things I was going to want to have to make my apartment have the sophisticated classic feel I was going for.  It is still a work in progress, but from my Pinterest research, these were the top things I decided were musts for me:

Do you have certain pieces that you want to add to your home to make it feel more put together?

TDF – To Die For

One of my favorite bloggers has a regular post she does called, “On my Radar” and I just love that I can expect to see it at least once a week. ¬†I wanted to do something kind of similar to highlight the things I see in my many shopping adventures. ¬†I am a pathological window shopper. ¬†I love to walk around and see what is out there at the high-end stores and then I try to find it at a better price. ¬†I call it treasure hunting, my friends call it time consuming. ¬†My thoughts are, if you can get more bang for your buck, why not add a little challenge in there as well? ¬†Thus, the “TDF” post is born. ¬†The things I find on my scooterpoofin’** trips that I can’t help but swoon over!

1.  Sailboat Door Knocker


How adorable is this?  I saw it at Furbish Studio and I practically swooned.  My apartments are super nautical and my door is red, so it would be a perfect fit.  It would also make a great introduction to a beach house or a nautical, summery themed house!

2.  Monogrammed Acrylic Tray


I love this tray from Shop Dandy!  It is perfect for putting your jewelry after the end of a long day, or even for using on your desk to hold things like paper clips and thumb tacks.

3.  Place Card Set


I am always in the mood for planning a good party, and these Kate Spade place cards would be the perfect addition to a high class, girly afternoon tea or late night champagne gathering!

4.  Flamingo Smoking Slipper


C. Wonder has done it again.  I saw these this summer and fell in love, but now they are on sale for $68.00.  Need I say more?  Plus, right now, all sale is an additional 50% off!

5.  White Tipped Matches


I’ve been searching for some matches that I could put in a little decorative cup on my bedside table, but they are actually kind of hard to find. ¬†Design Darling has a great selection of classy looking matches that would make a great, practical accent for your home.
