Little luxuries, vol.1

This column is all about the things that catch my eye. Little, or not-so-little details that make life more beautiful, enjoyable, chic and glamorous. And the best part? They all come sans the hefty price tag. What could be better? If you have your own list or ideas, don't hesitate to share them in the comments: I'm always eager to try and discover new things!

Today, it's all about the office accessories.

one: Of course, I had to include this one! Ever since it arrived, my Kate Spade large agenda has barely left my side. I use it to jot down inspiring quotes, schedule my blog posts and tick off blog-related to do lists. It will soon hold my bucket list and list of my dreams and big plans, and just thinking of it makes me giddy with excitement. The effect that gold polka dots have on me!

two: I'm very picky when it comes to pens. I hate when they are too thick and I hate when they are too thin. I'm just weird like that. Please tell me I'm not the only one. I've discovered Stabilo Point 88 when I first arrived in France, and I never looked back. They are just perfect for me, and the fact that they come in 20 different shades makes this color-loving gal really happy. 

three: I know. I know. Everyone and their grandmother are obsessed with Kate Spade lucite & gold stapler. I can't even go on Pinterest anymore, and not see at least a dozen creep up on me. But to be honest, I'm still trying to figure out my love-hate relationship with lucite. But this adorable pink set, that's a whole different story. It's sturdy enough to actually be put into use every day in the office, and it has the most perfect pearlescent pink color you can imagine. (I'm waxing poetic about a stapler. Clearly there's something wrong with me.)

four: Having friends all around the world means that Skype is very high on my personal world's-seven-wonders-list. And this glamorous rose gold retro handsed arrives right at Skype's heels. This cutie has survived some pretty epic several-hours-long chats with my best friend in Paris, and it most probably prevented me from becoming completely deaf from earbuds overuse. I owe it a lot. And it looks pretty on my desk.

five: Ikea makes me happy. That's a well-known truth. But I have never before shared the fact that Ikea's Paper section makes me positively giddy. I may or may not have spent a small fortune there, and I still can't get enough. Cheap thrills tend to add up quickly, you knew that? Funny enough, the star-shaped paper clips manage to make even the tedious task of filing business papers fun. Ok. Let's not exaggerate. Almost fun. 

Now tell me, what are the little luxuries that are making your life lovelier?


  1. I'm getting my classroom ready for the school year, so I'm ALL about office supplies! I just posted an Instagram of my aqua swing line stapler- love it!
