Reusable bags

I love reusable bags. I might actually be addicted. I just can't resist a cute bag! I use them for everything: from groceries to transporting things from my apartment to car to work. I keep them by my front door and in my car. My favorites are the ones from Forever 21 (see the cupcake one below). The F21 bags retail for $1.50 (!!!) and I have at least 6 (see my nautical ones in this post). They are easy to bring along to the grocery store and hold heavy essentials without breaking. I also really like the Lilly Pulitzer ones (see flag one below). I included a variety of different styles. Please leave a comment with other suggestions. Would love to see what you use! You can never have too many of these! I will be posting my collection next week.

Some cute ones I have seen recently:

Winston tote:

Bicycle bag:

Penguin tote (the foldup bag comes in an adorable penguin zipup pouch!):


More sweets:

Lilly Pulitzer (I have this one and another Lilly bag):

Jonathan Adler:

Junior totes (I have the elephant one and I gave the cupcake one to Sweet Tea Diaries):

Nautical Outfit of the Week: 1st Birthday

Linda from Girl with the Curlz shares my nautical obsession so I wasn't surprised when she sent me a photo of her son in a nautical outfit. Here's Kyle on his first birthday. How cute is the t-shirt? His shirt says "Anchors Aweigh! I'm 1 today!" And look at his little boat shoes!

My Apartment: Jewelry/Accessories

(click to enlarge)

I keep my favorite bracelets in a heart shaped box. A few years ago I received some Juicy Couture underwear in this adorable box. It has dividers (for each pair of underwear that came with it) so it is perfect for storing bracelets!
Necklaces are on my Pottery Barn Teen necklace holder
Favorite earrings are on an Urban Outfitters jewelry holder

Lilly Pulitzer perfume, elephant ring holder, the rest of my earrings in plastic display case:

Lilly Pulitzer Oh Shift ornaments are displayed in a shadowbox from Michaels:
