Fantasy Fashion + Finds Friday for June 6th, 2014

m-diamondOh, Kate Spade New York. Can you do anything wrong? I can’t wait to see these placemats on my kitchen table one day. “Save Room for Dessert?” Pretty much my motto. And wait until you see her new dishes, too. They are darling!

I brought this talented young woman‘s shop up once before with her genius and stunning bar carts. But I have to bring her up once more: Check out this gorgeous table. In dreaming of my ideal office, this comes immediately to mind.

Have you ever slept in a tree? How romantic would a night in a portaledge be? Climb up in there with your loved one and watch the sunset, and spend the night cuddled together. I am terrified of heights but I love this idea!

This Shade for Each Other Sugar Bowl is really stinking cute. How fun would this be on a coffee cart with brightly colored mugs to match?

m-diamondEvery now and then, it’s not only vital, but essential to treat yo self. So pack those bags and let us travel over to Dusit Thani Maldives, located on Mudhdhoo Island. Breathtaking, stunning and gorgeous are adjectives that don’t even begin to give this tropical paradise the justice it deserves.

C. Wonder has become one of my favorite shops for bangles and bracelets. In stopping in one of their shops, they have so much more than bracelets (who would have imagined)?! Being the shoe fanatic that I am, look at these beauties! *Drool*

How about we have an overnight stay at the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel? The lobby alone is a beautiful getaway. Stop by The Lobby Court Bar for a cocktail and spend some time around the piano. It is the perfect little vacation from the festival (or a nice break between the films).

Consider taking a break at the Great Lakes Science Center while you wait for your next film to begin! With a Special Exhibit on Wildlife Rescue, learn how individuals capture, raise and return endangered species. All of this, and so much more!

For dinner, head to Johnny’s downtown. Their food is so delicious that you will leave Cleveland wanting to come back for more!
