Sugar Paper, Los Angeles…

Sugar Paper Journals, Target, Sugar Paper, Journal

 

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!

The Elves Have Been Busy…

Collage

Hi Dahhlings! It truly has been a very busy last few days, so busy, that I never got a chance to write my last-minute shopping guide among other blog projects.  The collage above should explain why I’ve been MIA! It’s been a pleasant problem to have, I truly enjoy creating elegant items for my customers, and this time of year is especially busy.

I hope you’ve gotten all of your gifts, decorations, delicious food and all the other important goodies for the big day. 2 days to go!!!

If you haven’t gotten your gifts yet {tommorow is Christmas Eve!} I suggest you take yourselves to the nearest supermarket or drug store, and buy some of those well-known gift cards! Itunes, Nordstrom, Pottery Barn, anyone?

Loving Carol’s Daughter…

In New Loves! on January 31, 2012 at 10:51 am

Ladies, hopefully you are pampering yourselves on a daily basis because you are well deserving.  A product I’ve been using for years is the Carol’s Daughter range of body products.  I remember visiting Carol’s Daughter when Lisa Price had a tiny store on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn (well before the gentrification).  A good friend and I used to make the trek from Long Island to Brooklyn, just to buy her products.  At the time I had locs and used to use her Loc Butter religiously.  I’m proud of Lisa in what she has achieved, from making the products in her kitchen to now being a major player in the beauty arena.  For me as a small business women, she is a good example of what you can accomplish with hard work and determination and showing me, it can be done!  My favourite body treats right now is the Goddess Flower Shea Souffle, just the name alone, makes you feel like royalty (which you are!).  This product is a rich concoction of coconut and grapeseed oils, with Vitamin E thrown in for good measure. I also like the Ecstasy Body Butter and the Sugar-Dipped Vanilla Body Cream, which are both pretty luxurious!  I promise you’ll  fall in love.  http://www.carolsdaughter.com/

I Love My Star Sign…

In New Loves! on January 27, 2012 at 1:31 pm

For those of  you who know me, you know I love big statement rings. My rose quartz ring is always a conversation starter and I treasure it dearly (see pic below).  After browsing through my absolute  favourite shopping site, Etsy, I came across this fabulous Aquarius statement ring. I love being an Aquarian, we’re quirky, artistic, kind, moody, forgiving, a whole bunch of wonderful things! The quote by the sellar regarding this ring was perfect… “You know when you’re at a swinging party and some slick stud sidles up with the old school classic, ‘what’s your sign”‘ As far as I’m concerned this ring is perfect for addressing this question with a elegant flash of the hand! For those of you wanting to make your own statement, there are other sign rings, as well as other beautiful and original accessories at LarkinandLarkin at www.etsy.com
