spotted and hearted

February 29, 2012

I’ve been racking my brain trying to think of something to do for Leap Day and the best thing I came up with is to wear yoga pants, eat ice cream out of the carton and watch whatever marathon is playing on Bravo. Yep, I think I’ll stick with that.

The second installment for in the box is wrapped in a striped scarf for the francophile in your life. Tip: when packaging this up, buy extra macarons so your friend isn’t wondering why several of them have bite marks.

If I owned a party shop the windows would be balloon filled and the shelves would be stocked with color.

I hope you had a romantic week. Just so you know, I’m going to be taking a break from yamf next week. My growing girth and new house are requiring my attention plus I’m hoping to improve this space for you.

YAMF elsewhere:
I think food is the best favor and I love these ideas
I’m so happy about this new collection
Even Bran Flakes would taste good while sitting in one of these amazing breakfast nooks
Best of the week (ummm, the fridge ice dispenser turned into a candy dispenser is insane)
Wallpaper that’s removable and customizable Awesome!
Coolest hotel EVER

Thanks for reading friends.

I love this cheery color and pattern from artist Lara Harwood. Admiring them is like a strong dosage of summer, much needed during the slump I’m currently feeling. Hashtag: i hate winter.
