There are a ton of really cute accessories at ModCloth.com. Below are some of my favorites, but there are plenty more (especially if you love owls and elephants)! Click on the collage below for links.














Etsy Find: More random Christmas ideas

Here are some more products I’ve seen on Etsy that might be good for someone on your shopping list. I hope to create some more specific “gift guide” type lists later on, but this will have to do in the interim.


Owl stuffed toys by katedurkin, $18.


Wood block photograph, no. 0089 by keriherer, $48

il_430xn45742234Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything earrings by pawandclawdesigns, $18

White Rabbit art print by berkleyillustration, $15


Don’t Be a Blowhole bookplates by onegoodbumblebee, $8

Etsy Find: Let the Christmas shopping begin!

When my mom and I were driving around doing errands this weekend, to my surprise, she had a Christmas CD playing in the car. It was because there had been nothing good playing on the radio during her previous drive, but it struck me that Christmas is indeed coming very soon. I generally start shopping in November, buy a couple things, and then finish up in the final days before Christmas Eve. Hopefully this year I won’t cut things quite so close!

Below are a few of the items I’ve noticed on Etsy that I think might make good gifts.


Locket by MStevensonDesigns


Custom embroidered letter by ChezSucreChez


Cosette cowl by AllinStitches


True love necklace by trystbykerry


Whale soap dish by FoxAndClover


Birds on a wire painting (custom) by EarthArt

More to come, I’m sure!

(At least one of these will surely be going to my sister, who is the easiest person to shop for. I always end up buying her present first.)

Cycle in style!

Evidently these bicycle helmets by YAKKAY are only sold in European stores, but if I had one, it’d almost be enough to get me on a bike. Even though I’m a klutz, at least I’d be a safe one!


See at {frolic!}

Edit: The UK-based site 50cycles ships to the US. £87 ($160) + £27 shipping.

Cappuccio. Love. It.

The Cappuccio. I love it. I want it. I want it now. I’m not sure how much I’d actually wear it, though, because as much as I love accessories, I’m terrible at accessorizing. But it looks so warm, and as I was freezing this evening waiting for the bus, it was definitely on my mind. €90
