It’s almost Mother’s Day! Is your mother a cat lady? Are you yourself a cat lover? Maybe you know an animal lover who could use some cheering up. Are you searching for a gift for someone who doesn’t hate cats? Well, then this post is for you! During my relentless browsing of the internet I have found quite a selection of cat mugs. It’s no big surprise since the internet loves cats. I’m excited to be sharing them with you because mugs are such useful gifts. Everyone needs mugs at work and at home; and mugs tend to disappear. So everyone appreciates a mug. The trick comes down to finding a mug with a theme that matches the gift receiver’s personality. Do not fret too much in this regard because people happily drink coffee from boring, old, tacky, real estate mugs. If you find a theme they like to go with their mug, you just get some wonderful brownie points. I like brownie points, so I would go for themes that most people appreciate – like cats. Ready to dive down a wormhole of feline drinkware? Here we go!
Help non-morning people fight their early grumpiness with a smiling cat mug. Who can resist that adorable smile and pink little nose? This smiling cat mug is sure to cheer up anyone’s morning. Plus, the inside of the mug has a tiny little cat paw!
For today’s Wednesday Wishlist, I have some really cute clothes, animal inspired goodies and structured satchels. I have such an enormous collection of dresses that I want to feature in this and upcoming Wednesday Wishlist features; but I decided to mix them up with other garments. I want to avoid sharing with you the same mistake I made with my closet. I have too many dresses and too few tops and bottoms to change it up a bit. Don’t get me wrong, I love wearing dresses. They are comfortable and make me feel fancy without much effort. However, it’s harder to change things up with dresses. Mixing and matching tops with skirts, pants, and shorts give you more flexibility with your collection of clothes. You can wear the same top with different bottoms for completely different looks without looking like you’re wearing a uniform. To get that unique wardrobe effect from dresses you need to buy many, many, many dresses. Of course, wearing sweaters with dresses and changing the accessories, such as tights, do add some variety; but not as much as separates. Still, I am addicted to dresses and I will continue to add to my stockpile. Nonetheless, I am making a conscious effort to add more top and bottom options to my closet. So with my rant out of the way, let’s get started :)
This coat’s fit and flare silhouette makes it look like a dress. It has a strong military look with the double row of buttons and camo-ish green. If you decide to wear it over a dress, it will be like you’re wearing a dress within a dress. That sounds like a fantastic idea for a dress junkie like me :) It also looks like it is made of thick material that will actually keep you warm. I have coats that have thin lining and are pretty much just decorative.
Sur La Table has an adorable Easter chick collection. The collection includes chick plates, cups, knives, aprons, and more. These are not any old chicks. They are chubby, super-cute chicks that make me want to have a chick party! Yes, my obession with round, chubby things strikes again. Get ready, there’s a lot of yellow coming up and it will brighten your day.
Imagine decorating your dessert table with these chubby chick mugs. You can fill them with jelly beans, glazed almonds, foil covered chocolate eggs, or any other type of goodies you plan to fill the easter baskets with. Then again, imagine the chick mugs holding condiments for the party, sugar and cream for coffee; or ketchup, mustard, and mayo for the BBQ. Your other option is to actually use them as adorable mugs and serve your drinks: lemonade, hot chocolate, milk, soda, etc. Regardless of how you plan to add these chick mugs to your Easter party, they will be a huge success.
Easter is another Holiday turned into a candy eating fest. This year, you can make an Easter basket with some amazing goodies from Williams Sonoma. Williams Sonoma has teamed up with some of the best chocolatiers, confectionaries, and bakeries around the world to make some amazing goodies to fill up your Easter baskets. They usually do this during holidays and I am always excited about what they put together. I wish it was my job to curate their holiday food collections. Can you imagine tasting desserts from the best places to pick the best ones? If they are looking to add people to that team, I volunteer.
If I was having a massive Easter egg hunt or party I would get one in every color. Imagine a dessert table full of these beautiful cakes. It would look phenomenal. If your responsibility is to bring dessert to the Easter gathering, this is the cake to bring. It looks stunning and I am sure those four layers of cake with frosting also taste delicious. The green cake would also be the perfect dessert for this St. Patrick’s Day celebration. I don’t see green cakes that often, and when I do, they don’t look as good as this one.

So I went a little crazy with this post. I found too many cute ideas and had to include most of them. (Yes, this massive post does not mention everything I stumbled upon during my valentine’s saga. There was more, way more stuff.) So I kept the few items that would make the perfect decoration for Valentines’s Day. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend using ALL of the decorations below. It might look like a cupid went on a decorating rampage in your living room. A few of them will achieve the mood you are going for.
Only the finest beeswax is used to produce these slow-burning candles. They’re made in Illinois by the descendants of a French beekeeper who settled there in 1863. His high standards still prevail. Virtually smoke and drip free, the solid beeswax pillars and tapers feature top-quality, woven wicks that ensure even burning.
