Happy Wednesday and Halloween! How is everyone’s week going? I’ve been super busy catching up on life after a very demanding work week/weekend, but it feels good to be back in the swing of things blogging-wise! I do my best to schedule posts beforehand when I know I’m going into/coming out of a busy week, but that doesn’t always happen, so bear with me…
I thought I would share a few items that I’m loving this month. First up…pumpkin spice Rx bars. I just bought a big pack of these from Target and they’re great to throw in my work bag or eat for breakfast on days I’m not feeling super hungry but need something in my stomach. I love pumpkin spice coffee but am not one to go nuts for all of the flavored foods. However, these bars are worth it for sure!
Next up is this bamboo side table I snagged on Craigslist over the weekend! I was lucky enough to be able to pick it up from someone who lives right near my office, meaning that I didn’t have to go too far out of the way at all (I feel like oftentimes I find amazing pieces on CL only to learn that the seller lives 40 minutes away out in the suburbs). I love the blue color and the classic chinoiserie style. Funnily enough, when I asked the woman selling it where she’d originally bought it from, she admitted that she’d stolen it out of the trash…welp, at least she was honest (and one person’s trash truly is another person’s treasure!).
I also did some thrifting this past weekend after my work events were over and walked away with some fun finds, including this new-to-me design book (I opened it up and spotted the “For Like Ever” print on the first page, so I knew it was a winner!), and the above ginger jar vases (they were a set originally sold at World Market) and little brass pineapples (I basically had a freak out when I spotted those!).
Last but not least, I’ve been loving this leopard coat I picked up for only $18 on Poshmark! Katie has been rocking her Cupcakes & Cashmere leopard coat and I told her that I was on the hunt for my own, so I was happy to find this one at a great price (forgive yet another iPhone pic!).
