Local Love: Brambles

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

Today we are happy to introduce a favorite little shop of ours and a lovely discount for you. Brambles is located in Provo, Utah and is the place to go to find unique and special items for the home as well as fantastic gifts.

With one step in the shop you will be delighted by french music, the smell of dried lavender and become excited to start browsing through the unique collection Brambles has to offer.

Here you will find gorgeous antiques ranging ranging from delicate crystal lamps to industrial home accents as well as a rare find such as a vintage bikes, and old apothecary jars.

On our last trip we fell in love with these vintage milk bottles and white cement plant pot and planters.

Lisa, the shop owner not only has an eye for stunning antiques but a green thumb to make you swoon. She always has a huge range of beautiful and always perfect seasonal plants to purchase.

Brambles always has a wide array of seasonal items to spruce up your home, pretty costume jewelry, and the newest and yummiest range of soaps/candles and cleaning supplies as well.

Whether you are shopping for a statement piece for the home or a $5 gift you will find something here you can’t find anywhere else. Lisa also wraps each purchase free of charge, making each gift ready to give. We simply love this place!

Holler Dollar + Local Love: Thanksgiving Point Ice Cream

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

Thanksgiving Point is known for a lot of things, like: weddings, the gardens, or the dinosaur museum. But what you may not know, is that it has the most affordable ice cream in town.

A cup of soft serve is only 50¢, then the additional toppings are 25¢ and 15¢ depending. My favorite combo is vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce, heath bar, and it’s only 90¢ total! Em’s go-to is chocolate ice cream, hot fudge sauce, and reeces cups, also 90¢.

The only downside is, that it’s impossible to resist…so we often don’t!

Small Space Storage Solutions: My Nightstand

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

Today I am going to share how they are one of my storage solutions for living in a small spaces. Remember my love of glass cabinets? They are my new favorite thing to help things keep orderly around here.

By using glass cabinets with containers inside to categorize different items it is easy to create a highly functional space. A glass door is ideal to close on the clutter, and being able to see what you need clearly is a number one priority in maintaining order.

My Mum found these nightstands on clearance at Target when we were engaged. They were pretty, insanely cheap and had a lot of storage..sold! I have absolutely loved them.

Everything I need for my bedtime routine is just an arm’s reach away plus their is plenty of extra storage for small things (secret stash of chocolate).

Surprisingly, this space stays way more organized than any other cupboard in the apartment. Having a glass door forces you to put things where they’re supposed to be. The sides of this cabinet are also glass, creating a light so nothing can get lost.

Most importantly, closing that cabinet door and having all that clutter contained helps me breathe a little easier in our tiny space. For those of you struggling with need a few glass cabinets in your life!

Happy Memorial Day!
