HomeMint

I’m a huge follower of website’s that provide good deals.  I’m inundated with emails every morning that show offers and discounts around the city, so it takes something special to stand out.  I’ve been a member of the Mint’s (ShoeMint w/ Rachel Bilson and Nicole Chavez, StyleMint with the Olsen twins, JewelMint with Kate Bosworth and Cher Coulter, BeautyMint with Jessica Simpson and Nerida Joy) since their inception.  The idea is to take industry professionals and well-known celebrities to curate collections in their prospective areas that offer wonderful discounts to members.  I shop them a lot because I’ve found them to show goods that are quality, but more importantly unique.

I’m very excited about the newest Mint to join the group – HomeMint.  Justin Timberlake and Estee Stanley (well known celebrity stylist/home designer) team up to bring members great finds using their well trained eye.  They bring in new pieces every month, so I’ll definitely be interested to see where the collections go, but I’m impressed with the first batch!

Nubby Silk Pillow $39.99

Chalk Board & Ceramic Storage Jars $69.99

Tech Accessories

I will never forget my first cell phone.  I had to have the rectangular Nokia (you know, the one with Snake on it) and still think back with pride realizing how fast of a texter I was even with 3 letters on each button.  I obsessed with changing the covers to show off different colors and prints in an effort to make a rather bulky looking device “cute”.  Things have certainly come far since then; sometimes it feels like I can’t even go a month without a new tech accessory catching my eye, which makes personalizing these things (which we spend so much time on!) fun, as well as reflect our personal style.

I recently purchased a new mouse pad from Freshly Picked ($35) and an iPhone case from J Crew ($25) to spruce up my gadget’s looks for Spring.  Sometimes it’s nice to treat yourself to something like this because they’ve become as much of a part of our look as our shoes or handbag!
