pretty package: love & toast 03.31.2011


We were first attracted to this awesome bright, colorful illustrated packaging…but then, we come to find out that Love & Toast isn’t just beautiful on the outside! Their philosophy is, “It’s just as important to do good, as it is to look good”. So it’s good to know that with every Love & Toast purchase, you are doing both: a portion of every sale goes directly to Regional Affiliates of Girls, Inc which encourages girls everywhere to be “strong, smart & bold”! What’s not to love?! You can purchase online here or, we just saw some love & toast at our local Whole Foods!

on the lookout: bowls with pattern & color 03.29.2011


I’m having a strange obsession with bowls! I want bright colored bowls, patterned bowls, mini bowls, over-sized bowls, you name it-I want them on every surface in the house! Here are a few of today’s faves! It’s possible this is just the first of many bowl posts if this obsession continues. stay tuned!
