It’s the Little Things

that I often get excited about.  Like just getting out of the house on a weekday afternoon with the babe and stopping by West Elm and finding these Japanese masking tapes 50% off!
There’s no “reasonable” explanation for why I had to have them, nor do I know exactly what I’m going to do with them, except that they make me deliriously happy!
Hope your week is going well friends!

Hi! I’m Megan, mom to a thoughtful teenager and spunky young girl. We call Houston home and recently moved into our dream home. I traded my lawyer hat to become a full-time blogger in 2010. I love sharing my passion for affordable fashion, home decor, organization, & fitness to help inspire you to take care of you!


  1. I know exactly what you mean! It's definitely fun to get those things! I would love some too…and have absolutely NOTHING to do with them 🙂

  2. I totally get it. Besides, I think it is important to apreciate the little things. That tape made me smile this morning, I want some too!!

  3. I'm with you on this one – it's the little things that make the biggest difference. Even if you don't find any use for the tape – they are decorative and just pretty to look at!

  4. What a great find! If you're anything like me, they'll sit around for a while unused, then once you figure out the first brilliant use for them, you wont be able to stop. The ideas will keep coming and coming! 🙂

  5. Love the colors! I would put the yellow one around the four sides of your white desk. Right in the middle, all the way around.

  6. I totally sympathize- it's the little things! And I know you'll come up with something off-the-wall awesome to use them for 🙂

  7. Oh you sound like me. Just ordered three types of fabric for which I have no project yet! I am sure you will do something adorable with them.

  8. Those are fun and I would have snatched them up, too. I bet you'll come up with a clever use for them but I think sitting them on your desk for now is the perfect idea! They're cheerful!

  9. Ooh, those bring back memories!! We went to Japan last year and I had to leave so many gorgeous papers and tapes and fabrics behind 🙁 But I DID buy up and a year later, am still hoarding most of them because they're too precious to use! Well, that and I have nil time to scrapbook with them as I'd planned *sigh*

  10. Too funny b/c I bought similar jap tape not knowing what I'd do with it either 🙂

  11. I have rolls of Japanese tape too but can't bear to actually use them. They're too pretty to look at!

  12. I bought some goodies from West Elm this weekend as well and I dont remember seeing those. Oh well – maybe they will still have some this weekend!

  13. I loved reading about your journey to loose your baby weight. I'm in the same spot myself now. My son is 9 months. I still have to loose 10lbs to b at my pre pregnancy weight. I try and eat right and work out. I struggle w fitting in work outs w a full time job and a baby. I just don't feel like myself in this body. So far working out hasn't helpede loose the weight I though I would, so I guess keep trying???
