If you love beautiful stationary like I do, you’ll love the Sugar Paper Planners and Calendars Collection at Target.  I love Target, you know when you walk in there, there’s going to be something pretty and interesting, just tempting you to buy and take home (even if you just ran in for bottled water!).  I’m quite taken with Sugar Paper’s spiral bound 2015 journal and the slim gold one, which is very elegant and small enough to pop into your handbag.  Prices range from $7.99 to $14.99.

The collection launched back in October, so once their gone, they’re gone, but there was still quite a good selection available in my local target.  If you’re looking for stocking stuffers or a last-minute gift, get there soon, as I’m not sure how much longer items are going to be available.

Pop over to  Sugar Paper’s website, which is absolutely beautiful and elegant; with note sets, calendars, art prints and everything beautiful to do with paper in gorgeous fonts.  You can also customize certain items with monogramming, and as a special treat, they have free desk top wallpapers you can download to brighten up your desk top and mobile devices.  This is a paper queen’s paradise!

If you’re looking for a pair of inexpensive funky leggings, these just arrived via H&M. They were $7.95 down from $17.95 {sale ends tomorrow}.  The quality is lovely and the splash print looks even better in person.  Shop yours today here.

Also, remember tomorrow is Small Business Saturday.  Shop your independent small business retailer, whether online or brick and mortar; it’s important as it’s the beginning of the holiday shopping season, small businesses really depend on you.  You’ll love the unique and one of kind items you’ll find for yourself and for holiday gifts.

What I love about Instagram is that you meet and are able to follow the most interesting and creative people.  One of these people is a beautiful woman by the name of Paola.  Paola Mathe is a lifestyle blogger of Haitian descent based in New York City, but to me she is so much more than that.  She is beautiful, talented and moves to the beat of her own drum.  She exudes so much life and happiness,while embracing her rich Haitian culture.  Paola appears to be enjoying every single minute of life.  To me Paola is a woman who is living Boldly!

I have been following and collecting Paola’s Fanm Djanm (which means “Strong Woman”) head wraps for quite a while now.  These gorgeous creations are a statement unto themselves.  With their gorgeous colours and patterns, they are a sizable length, to create whatever style of head wrap you desire.  To make even more of a bold statement, you can also purchase and add a head chain; these stunning pieces of head/hair jewelry will surely cause you to stand out from the crowd.

Paola is an entrepreneur and blogger who truly inspires me.  Paola, you are a true Fanm Djanm!

To purchase your head wrap, visit Paola at her beautiful website
