Small Space Office Refresh

This post is sponsored by Cost Plus World Market and contains affiliate links. All opinions are my own.

I have been in desperate need of an office refresh! I had allowed papers to pile up all around me and my cubbies were getting so unorganized. I grabbed a few things from Cost Plus World Market to spruce up my Small Space Living. Their new fall collection that was just released is one of my favorites and has me inspired for the upcoming season! I love to go into my local store at The Rim in San Antonio and just browse all the gorgeous new stuff!

My office is in a small corner of our living room, so I it's always a priority to me to make this space vibe with the rest of the house. I like to include fun + inspirational decor mixed with office must haves. I love love love baskets to hide away unsightly stuff. I keep all of my camera equipment in one, my notebooks + loose folders in one, and stationary + mailing stuff in another. I added two gold metal baskets below my desk to hold bubble wrap, magazines + odds and ends from my oil business.

I'm so in love with their carved desk accessory collection! It's so bohemian + beautiful and gives my crazy pen + marker collection a place to reside, as well as other stuff. I got the beautiful capis tea lights in blush and used two of them for roller bottle storage + kept one to use as a tea light. And how can you not love little faux succulents??? I have the hardest time keeping them alive inside, so this was a perfect solution. My favorite decorative pieces is definitely the Mehndi hand. It makes a perfect statement piece on the triangle shelf. Wall storage is one of the best things for a small space. Anything you can get off the ground + up onto the walls will save you space. I think my two biggest tips for small space storage would be wall storage + baskets to tuck things away in. Check out their small space furniture collection for more ideas.

I feel so renewed + content to work in this space now. This is a place I spend most of my working time in, from blogging to my journey with Young Living essential oils. I am constantly interacting with people from this space, so I love that it feels truly life giving now. I think that can translate through your day to day communications.

TOP 10 OUTDOOR PICKS FOR SUMMER

This post is sponsored by Cost Plus World Market. All opinions are my own.

Cost Plus World Market is having a huge in store sale on all their outdoor living items through the 29th so I thought it would be fun to do a little round up of my favorite summer must haves for outdoors. I put together a little 'dream collection' for my porch. I'm so in love with some of their outdoor entertaining items, especially those palm leaf placemats!!! I will definitely be popping into my local store over at The Rim in San Antonio over the weekend to try to snag those if I can.

I can just picture all these beautiful greens + blues together against this neutral Marina Del Ray outdoor set. I love this set b/c it would be so easy to transform each season with different accents and colors. I'm a huge fan of outdoor wicker also and I just love the softness of colors in this set.

MATA TRADERS

Mata means "Mother" in Hindi and is a tribute to Shakti - The female creative power in all of us.

Mata Traders via bohocollective.com

Three best friends with a serious case of wanderlust set out on an around-the-world adventure and landed in Mother India for four months. Enamoured with the people, markets, and colorful textiles, they vowed to make the country a part of their life story.

A love affair with India has evolved into Mata Traders – a design driven, fair trade brand helping to end global poverty and inspire ethical companies and consumers to change the fashion industry. Made by artisans in India and Nepal, our colorfully original designs are now sold in 50 states and 12 countries, and provide a stable source of income for families in some of the world’s poorest communities.

Mata Traders via bohocollective.com

Mata Traders fair trade clothing and accessories are made by the hands of artisans in India and Nepal. Every item we sell is an original piece, and many incorporate craft traditions that date back centuries, such as block printing and embroidery.


Our artisans come from rural areas, tribal villages, and urban slums, but they all want the same thing – the chance to earn a fair wage and lift their families and communities out of poverty.

The Mata Mission

The Mata Traders mission is to ‘fashion a better world’ by creating designs that
celebrate a woman’s originality and empower her to use her dollar for change. We
merge uncommonly vibrant style with fair trade practices to make an impact on
global poverty – bringing fair wages to artisans in India and Nepal.

Mata Traders isn’t just about a flattering fit. We celebrate the talents and culture of the individuals who create our products. When factory-made textiles became prevalent many years ago, printers and weavers in India and Nepal were forced to turn to more menial forms of work to support their families, leaving artisan skills that were passed down for generations to be lost.

In a time of globalization and fast-paced technology, we’re proud to support the groups of traditional fabric producers and jewelry makers who remain active today. Artisans utilizing techniques like hand embroidery, block printing, jewelry making, and screen printing have made Mata Traders the spunky, stylish brand it has become.

CASABLANCA MARKET // HANDMADE FOR HOME

Casablanca Market offers an exclusive collection of handmade fine home goods and accessories from around the Mediterranean region including Morocco and Tunisia.  80% of our goods are handmade by women. It’s simple, we believe that it’s always a good idea to support and sustain small women artisan’s enterprises, because the people behind these businesses tend to be the backbone of their families, their children, their communities and they take a great pride and care a great deal about the products they make. In a time where most goods we own are mass-produced or disposable, it's nice to spend money on something that is the result of generations of tradition and a unique skill. There is something just a bit more special about a thing that has a story behind it.
