wall decals

I have been seeing these things everywhere lately! I guess wall decals are the new wallpaper, and my favorite company that makes them is blik. I have the Iron Vines up in our bedroom,

and have been looking at some more to add to the new house. These things are super easy to put up, no glue or anything, just like a big sticker! My recent faves are...

Splatter in D minor (for my piano studio)

Me, Myshelf, and I

And for kids' rooms, everything from the Wee Gallery, especially their new Garden collection. Plus this Race Ya!


toms shoes

Buy good shoes for a good cause. For every pair of Toms Shoes you buy, they donate a pair to kids in need. And they look super comfy too! I'm thinking these for Carter...

And these for Adelynn...


the scoop

I hate scooping ice cream, so I think I need one of these! Cute little ice cream rounds. Easy. No sticky knuckles.


i'm addicted to...

Kozy Shack's Caramel Flan!



At Earth Shoes, where their motto is "burn more calories with every step," they have some interesting designs. My mom has this pair, which is actually one of my favorites as well.

I guess this company has been around since the 70s, and used to make just hippy-style shoes. But now they have a huge selection, with some really cute designs. You can still see some of the hippy influence there, especially in the sandals.

Anyway, Earth shoes are definitely a different experience in footwear. The sole is angled up towards your toes, just slightly, but enough that your weight is shifted back a bit, and they say you will have better posture and burn more calories because it's way more of a leg workout when wearing them. Even though we don't share the same size, I tried on my mom's and I could tell a difference. I saw some at Shoe Mill, so go take a look if you're interested! (Or you can just take a gander at my stylish mom if you see her!)
