Another New Look

When I had shorter hair that I wasn’t trying to grow out, I had the urge to change my hairstyle every couple of weeks. Growing it totally squashed that phase so I found a new way to deal with my need for change: changing my blog layout or colors. The last layout/color change didn’t even get a post because I didn’t think it would stick around long – apparently I was right. Not even three weeks later, I had the sudden urge to change things up. Despite Spring seemingly forgetting that Wisconsin deserves some warm weather, I felt like adding a bit of color to the blog. Click over if you’re reading this through a reader to check it out!


And don’t forget – there’s still time to participate in the Spring giveaway!

Happy Monday everyone!

Mondays are not usually a favorite of mine when it comes to week days, but I’m hoping to make today a good day since we’re only a couple days away from the official start of Spring! Speaking of, we have a sale going on for the Gnarly Whale through the first day of Spring so you should check that out, too.

 First, let me tell you that this chick is rockin’ the turban and my hair would not look nearly as cute. That doesn’t stop me from loving it! I enjoy the neutral color and abstract pattern.

If you’ve ever read my blog, you would know that I have a slight obsession with cameras. Who knew, right? “k&CAMERA?”  These little stamps are calling my name. How cute would these be on client documents?

I have yet to purchase a “cute” iPhone case. I’m so scared I’d drop my phone and it wouldn’t be padded enough! Maybe I should cave in and buy one… these are so perfect.

This is darling. I love really tiny bands, and the personalization is so cute

There’s a special place in my heart for abstract art. I can’t wait to fill my future home with the colorful goodness! I love the pop of color this bad-boy could bring into a room.

 Oh! What do you know… another camera accessory :)  I have a feeling my Nikon would love this pretty little thing.
