I confess I don’t do the whole black Friday thing. Instead, I just keep an eye on my favorite brands and shops and wait patiently until they have a sale that I’m interested in. I’ve happend upon one of them and picked a few favorites to share with you ….
As I’m inching closer to forty I’m starting to feel more comfortable in my skin. I’m owning my lines, the years I’ve lived, from the inside out and on the outside with products that help my grooves glow.
I’ve always had a tiny waist and flat stomach. “Had” being the key word, because these days my stomach pooches out when I eat (or just drink water) and (oh gosh I can’t believe I’m writing this) . . .
Have you heard of Indelust, yet?
If not let me be the first to introduce you to a beautiful selection of home goods and fashion originating from the Indian subcontinent. I’m swooning over the many lovely finds on their website and the fact that Indelust believes that shopping should have a social conscience. You’ll find many items are handmade, vegan, organic, sustainable and even vintage. Cool, right?
Since I truly love getting behind a good brand that offers beautiful products, I’m sharing a few of my favorite items from the Indelust Sale (up to 40% off).
Here is what I’m la la loving… I think you’ll love it too!
1 / Monotint Splotch Top / The perfect silky (handmade) summer shirt. Did I mention the matching shorts to make the perfect pair?
2 / Striped Cushion Cover / This dip dyed striped cushion cover in toffee and black is to die for. The colors and pattern are just right for the coming fall season.
3 / Geometric Embroidery Cushion Cover / This bold modern pattern adorned with traditional Indian Aari embroidery is perfection.
4 / Tartan Cushion Cover / The brush stroke pattern and detailed string closures are super cool.
5 / White Applique Table Runner / perfect to dress up a table for an end of summer luncheon.
6 / Contemporary Muddah with Black String / This design is striking and works great as a little end table, perhaps next to your favorite chair, or topped with a round cushion for a sweet little seat.
7 / Festival Double Quilt / I love a good quilt, don’t you? It’s an heirloom. The patterns and colors are so pretty and perfect for passing down one day.
8 / Japanese Basket / This monochromatic basket made from recycled plastic by disadvantaged woman makes a great gift (for a special someone or to treat yourself). It would work great to hold blankets, clothes, or any of your favorite things.
9 / Sequin Stripe Shift Dress / How pretty is this dress? The shape, the stripes, the sequins. I’d love to add this beauty to my closet.

PS – I’m curious, when you have a little spending money would you rather shop for clothes or home decor?
By now, I should have dressing my kids down to a science. I have been a mom for thirteen years, after all. But there is no specific science when there is four and everything fits everyone differently.
With Ella, shopping was fun. A girl. I had not trouble tipping things in my cart, virtually or at Target. But when the boys came it was different. It was more like settling for something I wasn’t sure of. I’d go for simple, sturdy, sort-of-stylish. Thankfully, styles got better over time and by my fourth shopping for boys clothes was fun. Except that . . . shopping for four kids, total, isn’t all that fun. It’s more like work. There are budgets to adhere to, tops to coordinate with bottoms, hand-me-downs to pass out or pack up.
Can you relate?
