My Pretty Baubles

I’m still in Los Angeles but please enjoy this post I created for you in the meantime! Don’t forget to answer my question at the end in the comments! xoxo

On my dresser I keep a catchall – a leather pad that has corner that snap together to hold lovely things, like one’s watch when one gets home & wants to take it off because it’s Michael Kors and weighs three pounds.

After I lit a few candles because anything pretty calms my mind, I thought I should take a picture or two or ten and share it with you. I love pretty things! Above, in focus, is my mom’s gold Rolex watch she’s still (miraculously) letting me wear. Methinks she forgot I still have it. Shhhh!

And it’s the watch you always see me wear! My lovely Michael Kors watch sent over to me ages ago by Shop Bop.

I’m pretty much obsessed with anything rose-scented, so when I saw this in the checkout line at Sephora I immediately snatched it up. It’s been in my white coat pocket ever since and I’ve totally forgotten about it until recently. Glad to have it back in business!

Above: my Temple St. Clair for Target ring (seen here), and my Forever 21 bow hair clip (seen here).

Hand creme I picked up at Anthropologie after I saw it on Taylor‘s blog! It’s rosewater and glycerine, so you know I had to have it! Plus the tube is pretty (and a little goes a long way). Thanks Taylor for turning me onto it – I love it!

My moleskine planner and one of my nicer pens. I write down daily notes here and there, and print out photos on glossy paper of things I’ve been to, and…

…things I haven’t been to (i.e., IFB Evolving Influence conference, and fashion shows). Above: Alexander Wang and Prubal Gurung s/s ’11.

And of course there’s my lovely bib necklace from New York Design Shop! Almost forgot that.

So folks…what’s on your dresser (or nightstand)?

    My dresser has a ton of stuff on it so I will just mention some of my favorite things. One is my favorite Kiss My Face lavender moisturizer, some designer bindis on my dresser mirror (in case I want to go traditional with my outfits), my nail polish collection, Bella Pierre mineral foundation and brush, Kohl eye pencil, Burt bees lip balm and my to-go F21 elephant pendant. Conveniently all these things (except the nail polish, moisturizer and bindi) go in my purse when I step out. 🙂

    I wish I could post a picture. All my "non" putaway jewelry lives on my bathroom counter in a lovely enameled Lenox dish which resides on the most beautiful vintage mirrored tray. This tray also holds all my facecremes and perfumes. What a neat concept for a blog post…this is why I read your stuff, always so original!

    You have a gorgeous bauble collection. Mine are strewn haphazardly atop my dresser. It's so bad!

    I have wanted that MK watch for ages…too bad I don't have $400 laying around.

    And I love Moleskine too. Perfect for the compulsive list maker in me.
