m-diamondI don’t know about you, but I am ready to warm up (we’re never happy with what we have, right)? So let us pack our sandals and head to Costa Rica. Specifically, to Playa Grande and Las Baulas Marine National Park where there is endless sand, tide pools for snorkeling and leatherback turtles. You deserve an escape and this seems like just the place!

I love collecting coffee mugs. And this one would be the perfect addition to my collection. Ladies- you know all about leaving your marking on glasses. This one sparkles with fabulousness! Hey fellas- perhaps a great idea for your special lady, just in time for Valentine’s Day!

Sometimes, when you’re about to shower, you may forget the most important step in doing just that. With this decal, never worry about forgetting every again. I suppose it could also be fitting for a bedroom, but I’m trying to stay PG here.

That’s why when I discovered this candle, I knew it would be a perfect addition to my home (or future library)!

My friend Brittany got married last June. She is no ordinary friend. She is someone who knows everything about me and likes me despite my flaws and madness.

In her finding her best friend, and the love of her life, a celebration had to be arranged (in addition to the marriage, naturally). Brittany has been there for me, like her dad, in many ups-and-downs, and it was so exciting to be standing by her side as she exchanged those vows.  Continue reading

m-diamondA dream of mine, and essentially on my bucket list, is to attend every film festival. So for my fantasy travel tip of the day, let us head to Park City, Utah and attend the Sundance Film Festival! There is something so magical about film festivals and in meeting (and seeing) people’s stories captured in a beautiful form of art.

Juicy Couture teamed up with Baron Von Fancy to create a limited edition collection just in time for Valentine’s Day. How perfect is this bag to use for your next trip? I mean, who doesn’t have a little emotional baggage (or in some cases, a lot)?

I am obsessed with Bow & Drape and hope to one day create my own perfect top. How cute would one be specifically for M of Hearts? Create a personalized one for the lady in your life with Valentine’s Day coming up soon. Or promote a good cause, business or wear your words on your top!

Since we are halfway through the month and still pondering our resolutions, why not get organized? You know how much I love shoes and I’ve always dreamt of a fun way to show them off when I am not wearing them. How perfect would this be for your shoes and purses?
