So Beauty-Full

There so much to love about Sugarboo Designs.  I have been happily looking at this piece in my kitchen for months now (thanks Pine Straw!). It perks me up in the morning and settles me at the end of the day.  It's no secret these artistic treasures can be on the pricey side, but I've always said they are worth every penny for the quality and amazing distressed wooden frame. 

And then, as if the universe heard me, Sugarboo Designs partnered with my home away from home, Target!  Imagine my delight when I discovered this recently in my local store!!

I simply couldn't resist these two beauties to add to my collection:

Burlap frame $12.99
Typography print $14.99
So, if you too love Sugarboo for all its simplicity and inspirational wording, now's your chance!

Travelin' Bug

Back from my blogging hiatus!  I decided to cut back on shopping for Lent (it was a long 40 days!) and it didn't seem right to blog about shopping when I was supposed to be focused on other Divine matters :)  In any case, I'm back- and I have the travelin' bug!

As the academic year wraps up for me soon, I am ready to plan my summer vacations.  My mom and sister are headed to Beantown in May so we'll have a little jaunt here together, but I'm already dreaming of possible travels to the west....Santa Fe, Colorado Springs, Park City...maybe I'll finally get to Yellowstone this year.  But before that, I realized I needed a new weekender bag.  I've had my floral-y Vera Bradley for far too long (no offense to the lovers out there) and it feels a bit too youthful to use.  So, I discovered this little beauty from Lo & Sons: the Catalina.

I am moderately obsessed with it (I got the thistle color, which is a very distressed, warm purple color).  I LOVE the bottom compartment to hold shoes.  That was the selling point for me, and it opens to hold a ridiculous amount...I can see a 4-5 day trip in here. 

In my mind, there is nothing better than a bag that FEELS like vacation- and while these pics perhaps bring you to a winter cottage in Vermont rather than a warm sandy Florida beach, I still can't wait to use it!  Here's to summer travels soon :)
