Do you have that place you go for inspiration? I was talking to my old boss- she owns an entire village of little shops, called Gardner Village in Utah. She was saying that hopefully the world doesn’t all go to exclusively online shopping and no need for brick and mortar shops. I told her no way! I am a big online shopper. But there are a handful of shops I love to pop into for inspiration. And typically if a salesperson engages with me and points out her favorite things in their shop, guarantee I will buy it. It is all about connecting and giving ideas! So one of my favorite places to go (we are so lucky to live 10 minutes from this shop) is ShopTerrain. It is owned by Anthropologie, my other favorite store. I thought I would share some of my favorite things while shopping for inspiration the other day.
Loved all the color in THESE dishtowels
Loved this entire display of books and my favorite colorful mini bowls. I use these daily! Great to feed babies out of, mix spices, portion control for a sweet treat, shop them HERE.
I was thrilled to see that THESE colored bottle neck jars were really well priced!
- You guys all went crazy over THESE shoes (in white) I shared on last weeks Friday Favorites (I know because I can see who clicks on what #bigbrother). Those shoes are my favorite when I look “put together”. But THESE shoes are the shoes I have literally worn everyday since I got them. They are the perfect slip-on comfy shoe. I wore them all over Knotts Berry Farm and not once did my feet hurt or feel hot (both shoes are true to size).
- Do you enjoy a cup of tea? I LOVE loose leaf teas. I just found THIS and it is cutest loose leaf strainer! I just ordered it and can’t wait for my nightly tea. BTW…THIS is my favorite flavor of loose leaf tea. Great gift idea (Christmas…if you are a good planner).
- I never leave home without THIS. I have had mine for a year and love it. It is the perfect thing to use when we are out and about rather than your typical bag.
- I shared over on my Instagram Stories my favorite podcasts. I thought I would share them here too-
- How I Built This- I love the episode on Spanx and how they started Five Guys. So interesting to see how people get their start in business and their story.
- Happier with Gretchen Rubin- I always leave inspired. Favorite Episode was 37, because I am a Questioner. Episode 76 on Writing a Manifesto, Episode 54 with a lot of little happier tips, The episode where they discuss The Five Love Languages. Honestly there are SO many good ones.
- If you are into Marketing, Social Media Building a Brand or a Entrepreneur- I have loved these- The Goal Digger, Pursuit with Purpose, The Alison Show and Mormon Mompreneur.
- I am so excited because I started an exclusive Facebook Group! It is a closed group to my email subscribers only. The reason for that is because I know those of you who subscribe to my blog are my tribe. You are the people you will be positive and interact. It is also another way for me to get to know you better. And a way for you to easily post a design question! Anyone can pop in and answer and give ideas. I will chime in too, it will also help me know what you are all interested in learning about. You can subscribe to my blog below and join the group HERE!
- I also offered a chance to my email subscribers to ask me a FREE design question! (More about it on yesterdays blog post HERE). I was excited to get your emails already! I shared a picture of the room and the question I got on my email blast today. I suggest THIS rug to lighten up all her dark furniture or THIS one if she wants some color or love THIS one how it brings in the brown and lighter colors. She has a large space of 17×16. I would do at least an 8×10. Best way to make sure you like the size of a rug is to tape it off. The front furniture legs should at least be on top of the rug. You can read my design rules on rugs here- “What I learned not to do from Joanna Gaines” (yes, even she has learned over the years, just like all of us!). I would really recommend getting a super thick rug pad like THIS to make it extra cozy with kids.
