...IT WAS JUST ONE OF THOSE WEEKENDS....

I'm actually happy it's over. 
It was just one of those weekends where nothing seemed to go right.
On January 1st I was promoted :) and tomorrow I'm officially starting my new position as Marketing Manager and Social Media Director. 
I'm so excited to really dive into the projects we have planned and it's even more appealing that I will be working from my own beautiful, private office :) 
.........
Though my weekend was blah, here are some things that are making me smile lately...
I strung heart shaped doilies through fishing line and hung them in an alcove in the living room, above my TV. 
It's pretty and delicate....Perfect for Valentines day <3
 I found these adorable gourmet, pastel-y marshmallows...All I need are some pretty apothecary jars to hold them in.
I now have a silver version of the "Key to My" and I love these pretty and sparkly crystal beads. 
They shine like colored gems in person!
I love wasting time in Barnes and Noble and Borders Bookstores, especially in their sale sections. 
I found this adorable hardback, coffee table book on all of the Louis Vuitton iconic handbags for 98 cents. No joke.
