Happy (almost) Independence Day!
The Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays…from the patriotism and the camaraderie to the sparklers and fireworks. It’s just a feel good day as we celebrate the birth of our country with our loved ones. As a tradition, I take my dad and daughter to our local pancake breakfast with my best friend and her family. Later, we host family and friends at our home for a cookout and a swim (yep, we have an outdoor swimming pool). Since we work full-time, the pool does not get utilized as much as we would like. But this is definitely a holiday where it comes in handy. This year, I am really getting in the spirit and I want to decorate. Here are some of my favorite décor ideas that I might have to recreate:

Have you guys heard about Clean Slate by Crate&Barrel? It’s a new collection of beautifully designed home utility products for laundry, cleaning, storage and organization. I have a small obsession with cleaning supplies, even though I hate cleaning. Well, that’s not true. I love the outcome of cleaning but it’s just never how I want to spend my time. And laundry is the one chore I truly despise. Probably because I’m not sure that our ancient washer and dryer actually clean our clothes. Maybe if I had one of these super cool laundry bins I’d enjoy it more? Probably not, but I still want it. Either way, I’m totally loving all the products in the Clean Slate collection. They have everything from vacuums, dusters and trash cans to laundry bins, soaps and step ladders. All beautiful. All practical. Here are some of my faves:

First, I just wanted to wish a very happy birthday to my cousin who is more like the sister I never had, Jill! Show her some love and check out her blog, Jillian’s Kitchen. Today is also my parent’s anniversary and the anniversary of our engagement, so a celebratory day all around! And what better way to celebrate than with a toast! Check out the next page of the Holiday 2012 Girly Gift Guide, which is a collection devoted to one of my fave things: cocktails! You can see the full guide below the collection, or by clicking here. Happy girly gifting!

OK, I lied, this might be my favorite page of Holiday 2012 Girly Gift Guide. I know appliances aren’t the most romantic gifts, but my KitchenAid and my Nespresso are like two of my most favorite things. Ever. And by the way, that IKEA cart is like the only product they don’t seem to have in stock at my local store. What’s up with that? You can see the full guide below the collection, or by clicking here. Happy girly gifting!

I mentioned this before in my Poppin post, but when I was in school, shopping for supplies was my FAVORITE! And even though my back to school days are over, I still love office supplies. Especially cute and girly ones! So while looking through my Madewell catalog this weekend, I was thrilled to come across a curated collection of creative desk accessories from Top Hat.
Top Hat is a gift shop in SoHo that sells goods from around the world (found by owner Nina Allen), and is the retail counterpart to the online wholesale company, Sweet Bella. Here are some of my faves from their collection for Madewell:
