Trending: Polka Dots

I have always loved polka dots. They are a classic pattern; they don’t really go out of style. However, there is a polka dot trend going on right now and polka dots are back in a big way. I have spotted dots on dresses, tops, skirts, shoes, bags, accessories, and even home goods! Needless to say, I am ecstatic. I can never have enough polka dots in my closet. No scratch that – I can never have enough polka dots in my life.

In my excitement to share all the beautiful polka dot goodies I found, I went a little overboard. Now I have so many goodies I want show you that I had to break them up into categories. I will not be posting a large image and description for everything because the post would be too enormous. So I have added these little javascript widgets that let you browse the goodies and decide if you want to look more into them. The only down side is that you can’t see these nifty widgets if you read the blog via our newsletter from your email. So I encourage you to visit the blog on a browser so you can see all the polka dots in all their glory.

I hope you share my love for dotted patterns. Let’s get down to business.

Watching: Better Call Saul

This week I started watching the Breaking Bad spin off, Better Call Saul. Holy moly, it’s so great! I was left with a tv show void once the finale of Breaking Bad aired. There hasn’t been a show that truly grabs me since the Walter White saga ended – until the premier of Better Call Saul.

WARNING! SPOILER ALERT! (Skip this paragraph if you don’t want to read a spoiler.) What I love about this show is that it uses the same story telling and character development as Breaking Bad. So, even though Walter White is not in the show, it feels like you’re watching an episode of Breaking Bad. I actually might end up liking this show more because it builds on Breaking Bad. Characters like Mike and Tuco cross over and appear on Better Call Saul. So you get to watch the new show with a new story line but you also get to be on the look out for easter eggs referencing Breaking Bad. Yes, I am a total Breaking Bad fangirl and I love it! Things like the nail salon Saul Goodman tried to get Walter White to use as a front for their drug business turns out to be the place where he very first started. James Mcgill, Saul Goodman’s real name, starts out by renting a dingy little space as his first office in the nail Salon.

So if I am gifted any pushed related items I will be as happy and content as a Pusheen that has recently eaten some pie and taken a nap. So if your valentine is a geek you are in luck! Focus on their fandoms and get something that is related. Below I have some top notch geeky gifts to get you started:

Valentines: West Elm Gift Guide For Him

I believe finding a Valentine’s Day gift for guys is just as easy as finding one for girls. The difference lies on the type of gift you look for. Guys would prefer a useful gift over a thoughtful gift covered in hearts. Although, as a girl, I do give extra brownie points to heart covered gifts if they are useful. It’s like finding the most beautiful skirt you’ve seen all day and then you realize: IT ALSO HAS POCKETS! Boom! That skirt just became my favorite skirt ever.

So back to buying gifts for guys. West Elm has a great array of Men’s Valentine’s Day gifts and I have a few of them listed here. Go ahead and take a gander.
