The "O" List: 1st Edition

These are my obsessions...(please sing to the tone of Usher "these are my confessions").

I am also joining the lovely ladies of Little Link Friday at The Grits Blog

1. After the Jump podcast by Grace Bonney

Even before the Serial phenomenon I listened to podcasts (shocking I know). I love listening to them on long road trips and while exercising. After the Jump is a podcast hosted by Grace Bonney the designer and creator of Design Sponge an amazing site dedicated to all things for the home. Her episodes on the show talk about growing your business in the creative community. She interviews famous and intriguing makers from all aspects of design and the creative world. Topics include growing your brand, finding your voice, how to create content, and so much more. Bloggers you will love this! 

2. Deals and steals

Who doesn't love a good deal? I can think of no greater rush. I pride myself on the fact that I hardly everrrr pay regular price for anything. Researching sales and deals is part of the fun for me. The Marshall's in my town has some of the best selection I've come across. I always manage to come out with something. My last trip I scored this spring Essie polish for $3.99 and Kate Spade phone case for$16.99. I was a happy girl. 

3. Colorful Clutch

During the ShopBop sale last month I randomly chose this Rebecca Minkoff clutch that was on sale to increase my total so I could get the 25% off. I wasn't sure how I would like it but I'd been looking for a clutch for sometime. I took the plunge (such a risk I know) and added it to my shopping cart. I'm so glad I did. I love the colors and the zipper details. So many people have complimented me on it each time I've carried it.

4. Gallery Walls

The one and only LC posted How to Build a Gallery Wall earlier this week and I've been gazing at them ever since. I truly believe that your home should be a reflection of you and you should surround your space with things you love. What better way than to create a canvas on your wall filled with different objects and pictures. The one below was featured on LC's post and I think it's so cool.

In my head I have the idea to do one that features different photos from travels. Shout out to Cassie from Hi Sugarplum for creating this gorgeous gallery wall in her home showing off her adventures.

5. Fresh Kicks

I'm fairly certain I haven't bought a pair of sneaker (besides running shoes) since I was 12. For some reason I always thought I would look goofy wearing them in everyday life outside of the gym. But after seeing all the cute spring sneakers around I decided I needed some and got these! They are so comfortable and easy to thrown on. I even feel a little like a skater girl (hey Avril) :) 

What are you guys obsessing over lately?


  1. I will have to give this podcast a listen! Have you ever listened to the Smart Creative Women podcast? I love that one! And Serial too of course! :)

  2. I love that clutch!! Love love. I'm currently on a spending freeze (I know, what have I done?!) but this post is making me want to SHOP!
