Black + Gold Favorites

I found the coolest toothbrush ever. Ok, I’m sure there are way fancier ones out there, but I was pretty excited when I spotted these black and gold toothbrushes at TJ Maxx. There’s definitely no reason that I need a shiny, $8, made in Italy toothbrush! That’s what’s great about TJ Maxx. You find things that you definitely don’t need, but it’s half off so I might as well buy two, right? The cashier was baffled when I brought these to the register! This isn’t the only black and gold purchase I’ve made in the past few weeks. I was cleaning out my desk today and noticed just how out of hand the theme is getting. So here are some of my latest black and gold finds!

DSC_1946I’ll be sad when I run out of these! I haven’t been able to find them online.

DSC_1930I got  this Russell + Hazel mini binder on sale at the art supply store. They had so many cool items in the sale, but I restrained myself. It was tough! I got the weekly planner filler pages to keep track of assignments and such.

I had to get some matching, giant paper clips too! These were a couple bucks from Staples.

DSC_1926This definitely isn’t a recent find! Maybe you’ve noticed them in my little profile picture up above? I saw them sitting next to the binder in my desk and realized this obsession is taking over. I always get questions about these when I’m at the airport! I got them on Amazon, but I’ve also seen them at Urban Outfitters and recently American Apparel online.

Friday Favorite :: Texas Pride

DSC_1485

Happy Friday! Today I’m just posting one really cool favorite. I saw these Kris Nations pendants online a few weeks ago and really wanted one, but couldn’t decide on a state (I’ve lived in a bunch!). I would consider Colorado my home, but ya know…Colorado isn’t the most interestingly shaped state. Last week Paul actually pointed out a bowl of these at Nordstrom and I was so excited to see them in person! I was most drawn to California and Texas simply because they look awesome. I was born in Texas, so I figured why not sport my birthplace around my neck?! I only lived there for like 6 months, but it’s still significant I’d say! I love wearing this necklace. I like that it’s delicate, but also intricate. The quality is great, the chain is a nice length and it also comes in either silver or gold. Plus, you get to take it home in a cute little test tube! What state would most want to display around your neck? DSC_1496 DSC_1503 DSC_1507I’ve never used a clasp like this. It’s really handy!

Pretty much all of my favorites this week are gifts that I received for Christmas. I can’t pick a favorite – I love everything I got! Here are some of the pictures I remembered to snap.

20130104-141226.jpg:: I’ve been planning and planning to do posts about my clay projects. I will eventually, but I’m putting together a big project that I’m waiting to post until I’ve made more progress! These new clay tools have made my clay crafting soooo much easier (and fun) ::
