After Spring Cleaning: The Must-Have Fashion, Food & Tidbits

As I am tossing out old magazines, unused knickknacks and tattered handbags, I feel the need to fill the void they leave behind. I’ve donated a lot of clothes sitting in my drawers, a lot of makeup I never reach for, a lot of books I’ve grown tired of reading. I have a mental list of things I want to buy, but I have also organized this list of things I really wish for this Spring. Because really, what am I going to do with all this space in the closet and in my life now?

Cute, Minimal iPhone 4 Case
This Pretty Smitten Hello Darling iPhone 4s Case is so simple yet I fell in love with it at first sight. The Pool & Green color is vibrant enough but not overwhelming. I found this selling for $54.95 on Joss & Main, but then found the original seller (Pretty Smitten on Etsy) selling it for only $50.00. I don’t understand why websites like Joss & Main and One Kings Lane tries to rip off it’s buyers with overpriced products that they pretend are discounted. Rather than shopping at these “members-only site that offers limited-time sales”, I would suggest a more traditional approach such as a department store or boutique.

 

Spring cupcakes for heart
With the weather getting warmer and beach season approaching, a cupcake should not be on my wish list – but it is! A little indulging can do wonders to the mind. These chocolate cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery are deliciously moist chocolate cupcakes with a smooth velvety texture and dark chocolate flavor, vanilla butter cream and assorted sprinkles. And if you ever visit Magnolia Bakery in New York, I definitely recommend the pistachio cupcakes with pistachio meringue butter cream.

 

Agatha Christie Murder on the Orient
This one is not so much a must have as it is a must read. My friend recommended Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express to me after seeing my obsession with Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes. I haven’t gotten around to reading much of it as of yet, but I like what I see so far.


In terms of fashion and accessories, I’ve spotted a few must-haves on Littlewoods Ireland this weekend. Littlewoods Ireland, Ireland’s leading online department store, stocks a lot of gorgeous clothes and accessories for amazing prices.

I’ve been thinking about this Coleen Floral Dipped Hem Dress since I first laid eyes on it. It’s modern, floral and the perfect Spring dress. You can easily dress this up with heels as the model does or dress it down with some flats.
Littlewoods Ireland Skirt Dress Wish List
This Joe Browns Creatively Convertible Skirt is a flowing skirt that can easily be changed into a strapless dress, giving you two outfits in one. I’m more of a dress kind of gal, but have been trying to incorporate more skirts into my wardrobe. This convertible skirt/dress will a perfect item for that transition.
