Life's short, eat dessert first.

Not only do I utilize every excuse to eat what should be desserts (french toast, sugar coated pastries...) for breakfast, but now Kate Spade agrees with me. I adore this size clutch (7" wide) because it fits all my unnecessary items I carry at all times, yet still fits snuggly under my arm. Well, technically it is a cosmetic case, but it's far too cute to sit in a drawer or suitcase. I will wear it proud & loud, late into the evening with a cocktail in hand. 

This bright & sassy item is just the tip of the Kate Spade iceberg that is dominating our winters with drool worthy spring items. 

Oh, and their Tumblr? Even better. 

Carpe Diem,

The Power of Gold


That cake topper had an identity crisis. It used to be a pencil sharpener. How, you ask? The answer to far too many of my questions: gold spray paint. After only finding "Love statues" or "Love cake toppers" for at least $80 anywhere & everywhere, I was determined to create a cheaper solution. Cue the sketchy souvenir website that I doubted giving my credit card information to. Thirteen dollars later, I had found a solution! Design Master spray paint in Brilliant Gold 731 became my uber fantastic side-kick whilst planning the biggest party of my life (and best, might I add). Next time you're unsure of a solution, I'll bet my bottom dollar  that gold spray paint will be the answer. 

Carpe Diem,
