Hello everyone! I’m finally back from the Alt Summit. I have so much I want to share with you, but first I am really happy today because well, one, it’s Chinese New Year (so technically that’s a holiday for me.) And two, one of my favorite bloggers is here guest blogging my ‘Sweet Things under $20.’
Some of you may already know him, he’s Igor, the talented and happy voice behind Happy Interior Blog. I *met* him through a virtual Stripe Mania party he hosted with Holly from Decor8, and since then we’ve became buddies. I really admire Igor not only because of his great taste for interiors & design, but he is also funny and very optimistic about life. Oh, and did I mention? he’s a cutie too! :) So whenever I need a dose of happiness I think of reading his blog! I’m really thrilled to be introducing you to him today, so without further ado, here’s Igor!
“I must admit I am pretty excited. I am guest blogging on one of my favorite San Francisco based lifestyle blogs and I am beyond happy to share my list of ‘Sweet Things Under $20’ with you. But hey, where are my manners? Let me introduce myself first. My name is Igor and I am blogging over at Happy Interior Blog. I am based in Munich, Germany, and I am a regular reader of Jeanne’s blog. Thus, I was very honored when she asked me to guest blog on Shop Sweet Things and compile my personal sweet finds under $20. Wowzers!
Well, here I am with my happy picks. Colorful pocket notebooks are perfect for bloggers as this is how I am jotting down ideas on-the-go. Then, when I am writing my blog posts at home, I like to light a scented candle to get in the mood for inspiring ideas. I am always on the look for inspiration and love traveling. Sometimes, I take shortcuts to countries through books – and the Taschen collection is a perfect way to do so. And as an interiors blogger I am always on a hunt for happy little home accessories like these quirky measuring spoons or these striped tassel towels.
One last thought: Valentine’s Day is approaching folks! Well, a pretty Valentine’s card is compulsory and if you’re looking for a cool gift for your guy, how about this funny T-shirt or this super duper aftershave (by the way, it’s fab, I am using it myself).
Hope I managed to inspire you a bit today and if you liked it, feel very welcome to stop by at Happy Interior Blog. Have a great week!”
