I got a happy yellow mail all the way from the fair country of Ireland! This is another prize that I have won from a group of etsy owners. Linda, the owner makes character tooth fairy dolls, eye masks, stuff toys, viking dolls and so many cute products for both women and young kids to enjoy. She was such a joy to work with even when I was having problems ordering my prize and so forth. Everything was brightly packed in yellow (which is fast becoming my favorite color for summer). The eye mask has a very fluffy and soft side for the eyes and the doll looks very well made. It has a little pocket in the back for a tooth to insert on. I shipped this out to my niece so I'm excited for her to use this while I enjoy my eye mask. Don't forget to go check Yellow Hill Design on Instagram and Etsy!

Chevrons are always a good idea! There are phases in my life where I'm really obsessed with chevrons and these are an answered prayer. These cute coasters are handmade by an instragrammer named KaysCoasters.The coasters have a sturdy stone feature, printed vinyl on top and has a cork protector on the bottom. They speak farmhouse, nautical, chic style to me. I do like blue and these are great way to have a spare in my living room where I have splashes of cerulean, navy blue and different hues of blue. It is very well made in my opinion so go follow her and see more designs she makes. The sunflower one is cute too!

There is a new ring holder in my collection! Introducing this cute pastel dipped elephant from Not A Jewellery Box. Cute and stylish, its one of the many animal stands they have. I love the idea of not using jewelry boxes because seriously, it is hiding those cute trinkets. I'm very visual so I like seeing my jewelry metals shine in the sunlight, unless you want to protect your precious ones then I am not against that. It adds beauty to an otherwise boring vanity or table or wherever you display your jewelries. This ring stand is very heavy so it won't topple down even when you load it with many rings as possible. Plus its an elephant which I love collecting. Speaking of which, which animal is your favorite to be turned into a whimsical holder? Another favorite of mine is their unicorn necklace holder, feather jewelry holder and cactus stand. They have so many options to choose from and if you would like, you can have a customized one.

Recently, I gifted my hubby with a Givenchy tie. He loves it so much because of its lively print that he has been using it on a regular basis. With its variety of color, it easy to do different colored button down shirts and pants with it. Hubby likes to pair them accordingly with pocket squares of the same hue or a good surprise color like this red. This Moda Italia shirt he's wearing has a cuff link ready sleeve. The cuff links he's wearing are of a polished mirror stainless look. The necktie clip is just a simple clip and because of its metallic features can be used over and over again with different ties. Hubby achieved the look of textured dapper accessories just by mixing and keeping true to colors. Below are the links to accessories and where I bought it from.

Back from staycation - but really I have been hopping houses these days almost everyday so I'm back with a simple outfit inspired by my sister. She loves incorporating button down shirts with sleeveless tanks. Black on white, white on black is my latest #ootd and #wiw. Cute sandals are from Kathryn Amberleigh and bought it at an ebay store which they had sample sales of. ELLE "Houndstooth print" is also from ebay and a favorite of hubby. Skirt is from ebay but is handmade so it has an Etsy label. This outfit is perf for classes, office meetings and even just when you feel like layering. So simple and easy to do. Thank you to my sister for the inspiration. :D
Have a blessed week!!!
