Small Pleasures


.....

I realized that I've become addicted to pinning "secret" boards on Pinterest. I have no idea why I keep this one secret, but I do. However today I'm feeling extra generous (you're welcome) so I am going to reveal my "Small Pleasures" board. Honestly, it's really the simple things in life that make me smile. I mean that! What may seem like an odd assortment is actually a perfectly curated compilation of some of my favorite little tid-bits that brighten up my world. In short, these pieces are ME. 

.....

These small Nantucket prints make me smile as they remind me of my favorite place on this planet, and also bring back wonderful memories of our wedding day. We were blessed with a gorgeous sunshiny October Nantucket day. I can't wait to get back to the little slice of heaven in just a few short weeks!


I am in desperate need of new luggage and I love the customization of this piece. Also, I think I've finally learned my lesson after my last Bermuda trip that a wheel-y bag is #NECESSARY.


These little sea sponges sit in my bathroom in this set of apothecary jars, and I love the natural vibe that they bring into the space.


These horn pieces make my heart sing. They are the definition of simplistic perfection and look gorgeous adorned on a vanity top. Shop the handled comb here, the hair hook here, and the long comb here.


I definitely let out a little squeal when I discovered this adorable fox letter opener. He is just too damn cute! Do you use a letter opener everyday? Probably not. But you should! At the very least, style this little guy on your desk and get ready to smile with every use.


I was casually shopping in Anthropology a few weeks ago and came across their beauty section (one I admittedly tend to pass over). Out of the corner of my eye I saw all of these gorgeous gold brushes out on display, and was instantly drawn to them. Once I felt how soft the brush was coupled with that beautiful shiny base, I was sold. I've been using the powder brush every day and I am full-on addicted.


These earrings! I went to an India Hicks shopping event a few months ago, and was blown away by this woman. Listening to her speak, I was so inspired by her stories of her childhood and background and was also super impressed with her stunning collection. These little sparklers were one of my very favorites. I also walked away with this delicate necklace which is a must-have!

One of my favorite (and super random) things about our house is the linen/storage closet. It helps to keep my organized which is massively needed in my life. We keep the usual, extra towels and linens, a back supply of our favorite candles, and a few bathroom supplies. This little wooden "Guest" toothbrush set is the perfect item to tuck away until you have a favorite visitor. They will certainly appreciate the small gesture. And did I mention they are $12.50 for a set? LOVE them.

I have been having a serious love affair with this wooden salad bowl and I'm not ashamed to admit it. I'm seriously so obsessed with it and I am just waiting for that right moment to pounce. P.S. I found a serious look alike at Homegoods recently if you want the look for less. Me? I am holding out for the real deal. #saladbowlrelationshipgoals

Just a girl and her coffee table books... I seriously put 3-4 of these bad boys on my Christmas list each year, and I always keep a running list of ones I want to add to the pile. So I guess you could say I'm a collector? And honestly, this is the one case when it's totally OK to judge a book by it's cover. In fact I encourage it! Also, show me one person who doesn't love blue and white. I mean if you don't love blue and white - GIRLBYE. Shop these ones here and here


Rattan for the win! I recently picked up a gorgeous rattan umbrella stand (because I needed it, that's why) and have this tissue cover in each of our bathrooms. I love a good rattan charger or server for entertaining, and also a classic rattan hamper for the bedroom. Give me all the rattan all the time.


There you have it. Some of my favorite guilty small pleasures. What are yours?
