Welcome to a new monthly series: Treat Yo Self (No, I will never be over Parks & Rec.) If you’ve been around my blog for awhile, you know that indie shopping is something I love to do. There’s really nothing better than getting a great product and knowing you’ve supported an indie artist or maker. I’ve made it a point to purchase at least one indie product each month for the past two years, and I have no plans to stop yet! So each month, I’ll be showcasing some things I’m lusting after. (Case in point: that fabulous header image at the top. It’s art by the ever awesome Liana Kangas – grab a print here!)
This month, here’s what on my radar. Full disclosure: there be affiliate links below. Purchasing through those links earns me a small commission, which pays for costs here on the blog!
Lately I’m all about finding ways to decorate my planner. I’m still finding the best way to use my Passion Planner, and I’ve realized I’m not too into decoration without purpose. Therefore, I definitely want to make an order of stickers with useful things on them (appointments, water tracking, etc.) to add a little cute to my weekly layouts.
I’m a little obsessed with Sweet Kawaii Design‘s stickers. I’ve ordered from her in the past and loved what I’ve gotten. Right now I’m lusting after these Water Bottle stickers for water tracking, the Water Plants stickers since gardening season is right around the corner, and the adorable Gas Pumps to help track how often I’m filling up for budgeting purposes. Also, these little tea bags for absolutely no reason other than I love tea.
I wear earrings on a daily basis. They are about the only jewelry that I will definitely switch each day, and I’m always looking to add new pairs to my collection. Especially of the geekier variety; I am severely lacking in geek earrings.
I’ve been wanting to order from Favoring Brave for ages. Their jewelry combines a love of books and reading to make some seriously lovely jewelry. There are so many pairs of earrings I want to own! Topping the list are the Make Art pair (no surprise there) and the Make Time pair.
I think I’ll be indulging a bit more than usual with this month’s indie buy as February brings about a wonderful time of the year: Tax Return! While the hubs and I do budget it accordingly (a big chunk into savings + a new lawnmower this year) we save some aside just for the fun stuff.
What’s on your Treat Yo Self list?
