8 Reasons Why Summer is Awesome

That time of the year is finally here when we can actually go out and enjoy the day. No more heavy jackets and bulky clothing – it’s time for bright colors, lightweight & flirty fashion, outside brunches and long walks in the park. Here are 8 reasons why we think summer is just so freakin’ awesome.


  1. When summer comes around, we get to let our hair down and wear cool, eccentric and noticeable accessories (like our Beaded Acai necklace, Rainbow bottle necklace, retro sunglasses and our lovely silver cat pendant).


  1. We get to actually sit outdoors and enjoy a nice, leisurely brunch whilst the balmy summer wind gently rustles through our hair. We have the perfect dinnerware for your brunch too – see our beautiful bubble cup glasses and stylish salad bowl and server).


  1. Summer is perfect for curling up outside in a comfortable lounge chair and getting lost in your favorite book. Our flip-flop bookmarks are great for this activity.


  1. When summer arrives, we can finally go to the garden again and put our green thumb skills to good use. Check out our doll-head planters. They will definitely add a touch of uniqueness to your home garden.


  1. With the warm weather, there’s no better pastime than taking long, rejuvenating walks with your loving furry friend. Make sure to do that in style with our fashionable dog leash sets.


  1. Summer is also great for redecorating and adding some new design accents to your abode. See our home section for our distinct doormats, Ouch cutting board and rustic teak wooden bowls.


  1. Nothing goes better with a pleasant summer evening than sitting with friends and enjoying some finely aged wine. Drink to your fill, and for any leftovers – you can use our quirky valve bottle stopper to save the rest for another day


  1. Lastly summer is a time for taking bold new risks and trying new things in life. To remind yourself of these endless possibilities, take a chance with our sleek Wishbone silver necklace and gold-plated fortune cookie necklace. Remember wishes come true and we create our own fortune.

See you next month! 

10 Reasons to Love Reading

10 Reasons To Love Reading  

We are not shy to say it. Around these parts, we are huge fans of reading - we wear our library cards proudly as if they were shiny badges of honor. So what is it about reading we love so much? Well, let’s count the ways There’s no better way to spend a lazy laid back afternoon than curling up with a great book and a relaxing cup of tea. 

  1. There’s no better way to spend a lazy laid back afternoon than curling up with a great book and a relaxing cup of tea. 

  2. Speaking about relaxation, a balmy day by the beach (or pool) is only about a 100 times better when you have a gripping page-turner in your hands.

  3. A good book can make you envision distant lands and foreign cultures from the comfort of your own living room.

  4. A great book can inspire, motivate, intrigue and uplift; the perfect pick-me-up without going to a Tony Robbins or Oprah seminar.

  5. Reading is the perfect tonic for the soul. When your life is in a flux, just sit down with a good book and slow everything down. 

  6. Reading makes you smarter – it’s a simple fact. The more books you read, the more knowledge you attain. It’s as simple as that. 

  7. Reading helps you be more socially adept. The more you read, the more you’re in-tune with the overall human experience and you have more in common with everyone you meet.

  8. Reading exercises the brain. The brain is just like any other muscle in the body. If you don’t use it, it gets weak and flabby. You don’t want a weak and flabby brain – do you? 

  9. Reading zaps away boredom. How can you ever rightfully say “I don’t have anything to do?” There are over 130 million books in the world – get cracking!

  10. Lastly Reading is fundamental – it sparks creativity and it’s the foundation of education and intelligence. Could you imagine what our world would be without the treasure of books? We can’t either.


In our Cute Little Finds store, we have a unique selection of inventive bookends, bookmarksand even some vintage teacups and teapots for brewing the perfect cup to take your reading experience to the next level. That’s it for now – summer is coming and we’ll be in touch again then!
