Some Things I Just Love...a Guest Post!

I've asked my friend Susanna if she would be kind enough to pick out a handful of "things that she loves" - to contribute to one of my style posts.  I met Susanna through a mutual friend a few years ago.  Before that - I knew of her through the amazing children's art studio she ran, called Paper Scissors Oranges.  She's since closed the studio to take the time to raise her adorable children.  But before she did we were lucky enough to host a birthday party older son's 3rd birthday to be exact [which was more years ago than I'd care to think about].  It was the most magical and memorable party we've ever had for either child.
Since then we've bonded over a love of design, good food and blogging.  She has a wonderful style/family blog called Paper Oranges - I check it out daily.  I love her taste and frequently get inspired by the things I find there.  Her fabulous style goes beyond the computer screen - her home has been featured on the popular design website, Design*Sponge.  She really has the best style!  I'm obsessed.  So - without further ado - Susanna's "Some Things I Just Love" Picks...

{1.} Clare Vivier makes bags....and clutches I adore...this bag is super the silver.  {2.} My friend Jill has it going on.  She turned me on to Erica Tanov....a designer based in California with a shop in NYC.  This perfect color navy cami so so versatile and drapey...Great with jeans, a big chunky sweater and boots. {3.} The coveted mama ring....simple skinny rose gold band with the littlest mama engraving and the teeniest diamond....SWOON! {4.} The Jess Brown doll, handmade, simple, each doll is one of a kind and oh so lovely. {5.} A new book for children that is so gorgeously photographed....about a little girl and her favorite doll in Paris. The doll happens to be a jess brown doll.... {6.} This balm is my new go to moisturizer especially with cold weather.  I use it on my face, hands and even a bit on my unruly hair.  Smells great too.  Originally found on the blog Simple Lovely. {7.} Oh this pillow makes my heart sing every time I see daughter, Piper, is getting one for's print is the hottest of hot pink on the loveliest shade of oatmeal linen.
