cubicle decor inspiration

It’s partly because I’m a creative but who doesn’t like a little fancy in their cubicle? Although I’m the Director of Marketing I’m out in a cubicle and until the day I have my own office I’m decorating these grey half walls to keep me inspired.

These two shops (here and here) are so cute and affordable for pieces to spruce up your cube!

stamped fondant cookies

I am so happy with how these turned cookies turned out! I had seen similar cookies online but there wasn’t a tutorial just a single picture. I went on the hunt and sourced my own ideas for my in-laws fortieth anniversary party favors for this weekend. These sugar cookies are covered in a marshmallow fondant and stamped with this cute set of letters._MG_9097

DIY large paper tissue flowers

This weekend I’m hosting brunch for Mother’s day for my mother in law (hopefully she’s not seeing this yet…). I’ll show more photos later but I wanted to share these beforehand. This is such an easy and inexpensive craft to do for a party. I got all of my materials from the dollar store! I found this great tutorial from A Blissful Nest and only slightly changed it.

Wouldn’t these be pretty for a baby shower or even left in a bathroom like this at a party. It reminded me of a water lilly and I just put it here so I could see what it looked like (#craftinginbedproblems)

my little tan bag!

I’m a big bag lover in every sense of the meaning. I love bags and I like big bags. I think I have an irrational fear of being unprepared so I like to carry a lot of stuff. I’ve always admired these cute bags but I never thought I could pull them off. I took a risk with small this bag (c/o) but it really has proven itself useful!

high-end jewelry dupes…from walmart

I have an obsession with costume jewelry (and the chunkier the better). I’m always asked by friends (and random people) where I get things so I thought I’d share a little of my recent great finds…from Wal-Mart.
Yeeees, who would imagine but they have some REALLY great stuff at incredible prices right now. Scroll down to see some and find out the prices AND high-end pieces that look very close.

kentucky derby at home

One of my bucket list item is to make it to the Kentucky Derby. I love the hats and the dresses and Kentucky (it’s where my mom and grandparents are from!). Until my year comes, I love these items to bring the derby to me.

Table Runner / Ole Kentucky Home raglan  / Jockey Silk Tote / Mint Julep cup

I love the jockey silks and I love that they are so different from everything else you see. What a way to stand out. Mint Juleps are not my drink, I’ll save the mint for my iced tea, but I love the idea of flowers in mint julep cups instead.

Don’t forget to place your bets for May 7. I’m liking this one’s name.
