you oughta know

It's a new month.

A new view.

A new winter wardrobe.

January is all about the new years resolution, joining gyms, trying a new diet like the Whole30 and celebrating birthdays for you and all your Capricorn friends.

In my book, January is a FABULOUS month because it's the start of the new year AND my birthday month. I'll be turning 32 in just 12 days and have my birthday week booking up with little and big celebrations all week long.

I go back and forth between making really large and in charge new resolutions. Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't but I can tell you I'm going to for sure add more vegan meals each week into my meals. Nothing too crazy or unattainable with these meals but I'm going to make a conscious effort to eat less meat and this one way I can make that happen.

I'm also going to share some of my favorite finds from face creams to movies to fashion to restaurants to desserts to vegan recipes to British pop music and this lovely month I'm sticking to a few favorite Cleveland products that I have either purchased or DESPERATELY want to purchase and have on my "need to buy right this second" list on my phone.

1820 house candles.

Retail at about $20 each candle. 

I first saw these at Blackbird Fly Boutique and grabbed one for myself and a housewarming present in blackberry + arugala and thistle + milk. I'm a sucker for candles. It's the perfect gift to give someone   (as long you don't pick an overwhelming scent). My mom thinks I'm going to burn my down my living arrangements (so she purchased me a Scentsy a few years ago), but I still stock up on candles to burn in my small apartment. They make me feel relaxed, calm and more creative when I'm writing and working at my desk. (It's totally in my mind but I'm going with it.)

blair ritchey bags.

Mini Lulu  $95 (left) and PAK $225 (right)

Way back when, a friend invited a few bloggers to check out a new boutique in Chagrin Falls. That new boutique was Haven Style House - we were treated to makeup touch ups and see their brand new store. There I met the clutch I have been coveting since over a year - the mini Lulu from Blair Ritchey. It's beautiful, hand crafted and needs to be in my closet this winter along with the PAK in black gator. The PAK is like her bigger and sexier sister who wears slightly higher heels with a shorter skirt. It is THE clutch to carry all the damn time and that Blair Ritchey knows it! Even Blair's  key chains are adorable and were Christmas presents this year for a few friends. (Surprise! They are in the mail!)


Don't you want to order one right now? This one is (or was) under $300.
I fell in love with the classic bellfield petite tote as I perused the Cleveland Flea in the summer. You couldn't miss their set up with these beautifully crafted leather totes hanging so perfectly and basically calling out to me to buy and come over and take in the scent of the leather bags. After feeling these bags up like your 7th grade crush did, I instantly added this bag to that ever growing shopping list of handbags to buy in 2015 on my phone. Well, friends, THIS is added to the list along with the Phillip Lim satchel. I really don't know what one is going to come first at this point.

There you have it. Happy spending in your no spend January because these products are worth the splurge, if I do say so myself.
