Spring is awesome, because spring is one step away from summer. I have this theory that we only have two real seasons – summer and winter. We are either transitioning to the coldest moments in our earth orbit or we are transitioning to the hottest. And I’m all about summer. But last year I started to really appreciate spring. I’m going to try and appreciate it this year, too.
Ryan says (often) that we never really had a winter, but I have a lot of sweaters still hanging in my closet. I can’t wait to venture out of my house in cardigans more than sweaters.
Anyway. I’ve compiled a list of adorable items from Swoozie’s that I’d LOVE to acquire over this spring. Be careful when you visit the Swoozie’s site. You will want to buy it all.
ONE // Kate Spade Reusable Tote
Ryan and I recently watched a documentary on the problem of plastic in the world – like did you realize the plastic NEVER GOES AWAY? It seriously never goes away. and we use plastic ALL THE TIME. At the store, how often do you accept a plastic bag from the checkout clerk, when you could easily carry the items out yourself? Those bags NEVER go away. Â I’ve been convicted about that a lot lately, so this adorable tote is high on my list. Alsoâ€¦ the Vancouver Farmer’s Market just re-opened and I need to fill this tote with honey sticksâ€¦ except wait, aren’t those PLASTIC!? The struggle.
TWO // Ban.do Mobile Charger
With the weather getting better, I plan on being outside a LOT. For the most part, my phone only gets charged in my car while I’m driving so if I’m in someone else’s car, I’m screwed unless they have a car charger I can use. This pink and gold mobile charger is one of the most useful purchases I’m considering. Plus it’s cute. Like yeah, it’s usefulâ€¦ but the cute part is what sets it over the edge.
THREE // Kate Spade Gold Glitter Water Bottle
IT’S SO FANCY!! Â I’m torn between the glitter one and this pink one. but I’ll probably get neither because I have a ton of water bottles I don’t use as it is, haha. I just need to either get rid of the other ones and replace them or just start using those and have no need for another one.
FOUR // Lollia Wish Handcreme
THIS SMELL IS SO GOOD. I bought a small tube of it when a boutique in Portland was going out of business. Using this hand creme is the most royal thing I do in my average, ordinary life. It makes me feel like a princess. The smell and the packaging and the feel of my hands and everything. TRUST ME on this one.
FIVE // Pink Chevron Insulated Picnic Basket
Okay maybe now I’m just getting crazy, but I just want to have a picnic. The Pacific Northwest is full of so many beautiful places, and I want to go to one of them and eat lunch. Or linner. or dinner. Linner being the brunch of the afternoon. I just made that up. And how cute is this one!
Is it a little obvious that pink and gold are my top 2 favorite colors? Â 🙂
We have one of those picnic bags and it really is quite convenient for storage that it folds down. I want that glitter water bottle too! So pretty! Also, I have no ideas what swoozies is…??
oooh i wonder if that one folds down??? i am probably going to get it in anticipation of the weather warming up. swoozie’s is a money sucking website. hahaha
swooooozie’s makes me swoooooon! 🙂 love that store so much!
have you ever purchased anything from swoozie’s yet?? i haven’t!! i gotta get on it.
I want EVERYTHINGGGG why isn;t money free?
freaking GREAT QUESTIONS! #ifweruledtheworld
