We’re back with an excellent Blogger’s Favorites list this week. I am completely smitten with Jane from Simple + Pretty. Her blog is pretty much perfection…she has an amazing eye, impeccable taste and is, well, incredibly nice. Really what better combination is there?
So, without further ado, herewith Jane’s favorites.
Have a splendid week-end! p.s. I have something new to share with you next week!
Thanks, Joslyn, for including me in the Blogger’s Favorites series! I’m always curious to learn a bit more about my favorite bloggers. I just had no idea how hard it would be to come up with my list of favorites.
Le Labo Rose 31: I’ve worn other fragrances from Le Labo, but this recent discovery (thanks to Domino Magazine) is my favorite. It smells fabulous and I get so many compliments. (always a good thing with fragrance) I wear it every single day. I’m also smitten with their Musc 25 which is exclusive to the LA store, but I didn’t buy it when I had the chance. Ah, regrets.
Vanessa’s handwritten tags for Miette: I love quirky + charming handwriting, and Vanessa has it in spades. Don’t you wish it were a font? (image via i8pixistix flickr)
Coffee: What’s not to love about coffee? It smells heavenly and it just wouldn’t be morning without it. I wish I could make lovely designs in my morning au lait like the barristas at Intelligentsia and Blue Bottle. My attempts are rather sad, but still taste good. (image via Gayla's flickr)
Chocolate chip cookies: I have a well-documented bakery problem, and chocolate chip cookies are my fallback indulgence. Baking them is fun but then I have 2-3 dozen staring me down all at once. Too much temptation.
Flowers: fresh flowers never fail to cheer me up. I’m so happy that it’s peony season right now! (I also love garden roses and ranunculus.)
Cute flats: cannot pass them up. Comfy + stylish = love. Black ballet flats, bejeweled flats, Lanvin flats ($$$). Love them all.
Rae Dunn’s Friday Field Trip from the Sketchbook: I adore Rae Dunn’s illustrations. Her sketchbook drawings are so sweet + they’re always a nice surprise in my Google reader.
iPhone: I’ve had my iPhone since the very first day they were available, and I love that I can access email/Flickr/Twitter/Red Sox scores whenever I want. Funny thing is, I rarely use it as a phone. Oh well.
The Internet: Kind of a broad category, right? But here’s the thing: how else would I learn about the awesomeness out in the world, whether it’s finding a cute cupcake shop in London (odd example but I just did that. Check out violetcakes.com) or checking in with my favorite bloggers or seeing beautiful photography at Flickr or finding unique handmade goods at Etsy (and the list goes on)! The ability to connect with people from all over the world while I sit in my Illinois kitchen is at once humbling and inspiring.
