Sometimes you meet a pair of shoes that speak for themselves.

Accoutre Love

There are the times when I think the Universe is challenging me to show her why I "deserve to have it all" and then there are the times when I know she is listening and delivering.  Yesterday, was one of the latter.  A week or so ago, I said I needed more pink in my life and yesterday, I received a lovely pink corduroy bow tie from Accoutre (thanks, Chloe!!).  I love it!  Don't you?!

Also note the delicate printed tissue paper the tie was packaged in, such an elegant touch! I really love when businesses take the time to think about the little things that may delight a customer and make their experience just a little bit more wonderful. Kudos Accoutre!

Stubbs and Wooten

I've been obsessing over Stubbs and Wooten slippers for a long while now.  After spending an entire day of thinking about velvet (see my other blog,, I couldn't help but be drawn back to my desire for a pair of these lovely little velvet slippers.  Here are a few I like best.

The Sweet Lobby

Yesterday, I picked up a box of macarons from The Sweet Lobby for my my friend, Chloe, in celebration of buying her first home.  There were so many options to choose from, it was difficult just deciding on six. They looked so pretty and delicate in the case, it seemed almost cruel to gobble them up like I was sure we would. I ended up selecting Rose, Hazelnut Praline Salted Caramel, Mocha, Mango, Lemon and Mint Chocolate. I purchased one Hazelnut Praline Salted Caramel macaron for myself and being that it was a temperate winter day, I took it outside to enjoy in the sunshine.  The deliciousness of that macaron was incredible.  After it was gone, I could feel my taste-buds still savoring it, almost as if they were dancing.  It was very difficult not to buy another.  I think my cupcake addiction has been replaced by a macaron addiction so needless to say, I will be visiting The Sweet Lobby again!

A Touch of Sparkle

I think I may be slightly obsessed with all things sparkly this year, from sprinkling glitter all over my twitter timeline to sequined leggings and now these sparkle-riffic phone cases from Simply Fabulous.  I just can't seem to get enough sparkle.

Heart of Man

A couple of weeks ago, I commented that I learn of at least 5 new awesome things each day.  Earlier this week, I met Marcus Noel of Heart of Man Clothing and discovered yet another new awesome thing.  It was apparent right away that Mr. Noel was extremely focused, driven and fashion savvy.  During the course of our brief encounter, Marcus told me that Heart of Man seeks to help underserved children while taking fashion to a new level.  Through further research, I learned that a portion of the proceeds from each article of clothing Heart of Man sells is donated to a non-profit that serves disadvantaged children by helping them realize their life potential and escape poverty. I was super impressed by Heart of Man's mission and look forward to making my own contribution as well as adding a letterman's sweater to my wardrobe!

Sequined Leggings

I know New Year's has come and gone and as some probably think, so should all things sparkly but I disagree.  I'm usually not a big sequins person. There's no real reason for this, I just never jumped on the trend, that is until yesterday when I saw these leggings on @fashionclimaxx's instagram feed.  Since then I've been scouring the Internet to find out who makes them and where I can get a pair.  Hate them or love them?  Let me know!
