While I’m slowly but surely making over my bathroom, I’ve been on the hunt for counter-worthy bath products and toiletries. Since I prefer clear countertops (for both style and sanity), I only buy items with attractive packaging – unless, of course, I’m stowing them away in my cabinets.

Friday happy hour is back with a summery spin! Since there’s nothing quite like a cool bevvie at the end of a long work week, I’ll share a refreshing cocktail recipe each Friday for the next month or so. Next up: how to make a Pimm’s Cup. A deliciously refreshing drink with a likeness to iced tea. The best part: You can put a pitcher of Pimm’s Cup out at any backyard shindig and it’s a guaranteed hit with EVERYONE.
I’m in love with New York-based fashion designer Mara Hoffman’s graphic boho prints and vibrantly coloured pieces (as evidenced in this post). Her attention-grabbing home decor collection with Anthropologie has been all the rage among the style set this summer, so it seems fitting that I’ve dedicated our Decor VS. Fashion post to her.
So, if you had $170 to spend this weekend, which would you choose: A Mara Hoffman-designed floor pillow or tank top?
I recently renovated my main bathroom – the one I share with every member of my family. While accessorizing I searched high and low for a new soap dish – something functional, but still good looking, one that would elevate a simple bar of soap. Here are a few of the ones I found:
This is my favourite (right now) with the sexy brass and the draining ability – no soggy soap bars here. Its from West Elm Market.
Put your mark on your next pot luck offering with a rolling pin that’s embossed with a your monogram. Australia-based Denis Savelyev will hand-carve your initials into a sturdy birch pin. Even the most rustic of pies will be oozing with class – not to mention a yummy filling! And if pressing your moniker into your baked goods doesn’t appeal to you, perhaps a graphic pattern or swirly motif is more your style. Whatever your pick, fellow guests are sure to get a kick out of it. Check out some of Denis’s pieces below, or visit his Etsy shop for more.
