valentine’s day essentials.

Okay, okay, we know Valentine’s Day gets a bad rap these days (fake holiday, stupid Cupid, etc)…but we still love it. There’s something really sweet about acknowledging all the amazing people in your life, including but not limited to significant others. BFFs, teachers, your children and their classmates, etc. Jennifer pulled together this assortment of V-Day essentials, and we had to share. There’s something so happy about red and pink and xs and os.

It’s October! To kick off L’s birthday month (pretty much the best month of the year), we put together must-buy/must-do list for Halloween.  Here’s what we’re feeling:

1. Sophisticated Pumpkins. The cute blog Feeling Lovesome has inspired us to go beyond the standard carved pumpkin (ours never looked that great anyway).  We’re totally going to try this chevron pumpkin–we’ll report back later in the month!

A little masking tape, some spray paint, and voila.

2. Skulls. We love them. Halloween just gives us an excuse to love them more than usual.

Skull Soaps
