Haute Culture Mini Gardens

I’ve never had a pet. I don’t think gold fish count. Even if it did, I’m not proud of how long they lived under my care.

But I think I would be really good at taking care of grass! And if I do it well, maybe I can upgrade to flowers and more special kinds of plants. Preferably the kind that are low maintenance and very resilient.

No cactus please. I like to pet.

Bedside Carafe and Tumbler

It’s always a good idea to have a drink on hand, whether it be bedside or desk side. I think it would be lovely to have a beautiful carafe and these ones even have tumblers as covers so you can be sure there aren’t any floaters when you reach for a drink. Function and beauty baby!

Ruby Press is giving away free cupcakes!

Ruby Press is a boutique PR agency with a beautiful blog filled with delightful inspiration. And they’re currently running a giveaway to promote Viv & Ingrid‘s new v&i Bonbon collection of gifts and accessories.

These are so adorable AND cupcake shaped! What’s not to love? I could think of a dozen things to stash in them! Candies, nuts, mints, bite-sized snack things, staples, tacks, stickers, paper clips, jewellery, cotton balls… whatever else needs containing! These cupcakes come in cherry, chocolate, gold, silver and strawberry colours which are really pretty but if I win, I would want them all in cherry! Not very creative? I think not, because it’s my fave colour and I want them all neatly in a row on my desk so I will always have cupcakes in view holding my tidbits!

You know, they come in the prettiest boxes too and I think they’re worth keeping on display too. I can hide even more stuff in ’em!

Mmm, this would make for a delicious floating bed! I was just telling my mum that I would love an all-white, super comfy bed set that would feel like I’m sleeping in a cloud. Lo and behold, I come across this piece of genius! It doesn’t exist in form yet… but someone sure got the ball rolling on this. I expect this to be on my door step by Christmas.

This Cloud Sofa will certainly go very well with your own Personal Moon. But then again, I prefer to sleep in the dark with as little stimuli as possible. Sometimes, I even put a scarf over my alarm clock or turn it away. I cherish my sleepy time very much!
