Fabulous Photography coffee table book by Tim Walker

Dransfield and Ross Gate Pillow

Waylande Gregory Square Tray

Bongenre Midnight Louis Melamine Plate

So I am in love with Elements Chicago for all of my interior design lust worthy pieces. Here are few of my faves that I would love to have in my apartment if I had an unlimited design budget! The pillow makes my heart swell! xoxo


I absolutely adore this Gold Bar Bracelet from Loulou and Maxime. It is so delicate and beautiful and would be so fun to personalize with engraving! Mine would probably say Sweet-Pea or Pisces. What would you put on this bracelet?

Let it Snow

This month's Elle Decor features a gorgeous rustic ski home that I am drooling over. I am currently planning a ski-getaway to Telluride so this is making me very excited! Let it snow!


I have been obsessed over the YSL nail collection since it debuted this fall for not only because of the color palette but their take on the updated french manicure is so chic. I think the classic french is a bit tired so I love their interpretation. I am thinking of doing something similar for NYE but with hot pink base and glitter tips. Happy Holidays! xox

How amazing is this coat from Le Train Bleu? I think it would be the perfect transitional piece from winter to spring. The colors, the floral, the print all make my heart swell! Fabulous.

Fair Isle Sweater

Dear Fieldbinder

For as long as I can remember, I have had a strong attraction towards fair isle sweaters. Every winter rolls around and I tell myself that I do not need another cozy, winter themed sweater but alas, I always end up caving and buying just one more! I reason that they are perfect for ski weekends although at this point I am not sure how I will work out wearing all eight of mine in three days. Nevertheless, they are one of my favorite winter looks and here are some of the best around the web! Happy Holidays! xoxox

Have A Delightful Weekend!

Hello lovelies! What are you up to this weekend? I am home for some much needed R & R after the GRE and now I just have to finish up grad applications and I will be ready to enjoy Christmas! I have been getting a lot of time to run since I am at my parents home which is always good! I am missing Chicago but I will be back soon! xoxo

To keep you busy....

This is unsurprisingly sold out (tear) but I will keep checking back. I need it in my apartment...ASAP.

Is picturing my scruffy haired, with a 5' o clock shadow, imaginary boyfriend in this fair isle sweater.

This restaurant recipe is soooooo YUM! You will want a giant heaping to warm you up on a blustery, grey day.

My new years pumps that I am dying to wear!

The packaging, the sparkle, the scent, it all makes me want to twirl!

This is hands down the BEST drugstore lip balm ever! Plus the packaging is nifty.

These are the cutest neon colored mittens! You will be sure to hail a cab with these bright knits on your mits.

Love these colorful stackable rings

I am so obsessed with these affordable slippers. They have not left my feet since I bought them. Aren't the colors rad?

My Oh My!

I am so in love with the exquisiteness that is Elva Fields. From their collections, to their story, to the way the create their pieces, is absolute loveliness. Above are some of my favorite necklaces that I would love to rock around my neck with jeans and a white v-neck.

Baby It's Cold Outside

Hello SweetPea readers! Sorry for the delay in posts it has been a CRAZY week! Lot's of work for Aprizi (so exciting!) and The Tail, and some very dear friends from Paris were staying with me in the windy city this week! As it is absolutely freezing here now and very blustery, I thought a coat post would be appropriate. I am also what I consider a coataholic and have an unhealthy and costly obsession with buying coats and therefore find it very easy to scour for my favorite coat collections! That said, I am totally lusting for anything by Lauren Moffat. She makes the most gorgeous coats (as seen above) that I am dying to get my hands on. They are available at Dear Fieldbinder (one of my fave new shopping sites) and Anthropoligie. Stay Warm! xox

I am in such talented company and cannot wait to see the website blossom ! Please check out Aprizi and follow us on Twitter and Facebook!

I would really, really, really like to have this nifty roll-o-decks on my white desk! Via Design Crush.

If you live in NYC.....

My dear Sweet Pea readers, of you live in NYC or will be there this Thursday, you're in luck! A dear friend of mine's sister, is hosting a fabulous Paris Shopping Party! The host lives in Paris and comes to the states a few times a year for these parties, which offers french designers duds and jewelry that would otherwise be impossible to get here in the states! There is of course wine, great fashion and fun! So if you find yourself around 505 West 54th in NYC on Thursday, please pop in! I promise you wont regret it! Bisous!!!

Do Something Great Today

Hello lovelies! It is snowing here today and its warm and cozy in my apartment and I couldn't be more smitten! Then I got an e-mail about an awesome idea by blogger Suzanne who has a brilliant way to help those in need and now I feel even more warm inside! All you have to do is pop over to her blog, Tracing Suzanne, follow her, and in turn she will donate a non perishable food time to a Chicago and St Louis food pantry for every new follower! What an easy way for a blogger to do something great today without even leaving your computer! Cheers!
