Skooba Laptop Case in Plum Micro Suede $29.95 - OpenSky
Yes there are days when I run to the comfort of Starbucks as I can enjoy a green tea, soak up the wifi and work like I have a million deadlines that must be done in an instant. I could spend all days at Starbucks as hearing other people in the background reminds me of my days in college whether I was working from the dorm or the library. Hearing other people keeps me motivated. Whether I'm at my favorite spot all day or just a chunk, I know that in many cases I will be out and about at an event or hanging out with friends. When it comes time for me to work it's all about the accessories
First off the Skooba laptop bag is one of my favorite things! I love that it can be worn envelope style as you see above or you can carry it like a tote with little handles! I love the color as purple is a favorite and even better, this is apart of a new partner that you will see on Kitten Lounge! When you purchase from OpenSky, you have the opportunity to buy from shops (we will have one) where the owner curates the products! In the next few weeks you will hear about my finds that will be available as Kitten Lounge joins this amazing shop!
Often, I can put my laptop in this bag along with my bare necessities and have been seen wearing this as my bag for the day. On such occasions, I rock my love of purple with an Agate Cuff and super cute glasses that have a slight purple hue! What a way to pull everything together with a cute romper which is not only comfy but you can still grab a 'tini with your bestie and look fab!
If you're going to be in NYC on Thurs the 27th then you need to check out the Sip and Shop Sample Sale that will take place from 12 - 8pm which is being hosted by Sip and Shop that will have a number of sales throughout the summer, Skinny Water and Kitten Lounge! This sale will include handbags, shoes, dresses and of course accessories from Cynthia Rybakoff who was apart of the Splashion Soiree that I hosted a few weeks ago! If you've been looking for something new or are just in the mood to get summer ready then you must stop by!
I love this season now that the election is over and we have solidified our leadership, we can now think about our attire for the next few weeks and beyond. Yesterday as I was working on the holiday guide, I was told about a site that looks to bring fashion forward looks to you! Now we all know that there will be many outfits that we will need to buy to get ready for after work parties, gifting affairs and so much more. So we will want more than one site and/or store to get us ready for the next season. eCarg has super cute tops that will be cute with a pair of leggings, a cute clutch and of course your perfect heels as well. Show some love to this site whose owner, Grace (she handpicks each item that is on this site and in case you didn't notice, Grace spelled backwards is eCarg), reached out to me and who I felt was a necessity for you guys to know about! I love these two tops and think that they will look great during various occassions.
Yes summer is coming to an end but that doesn't mean that the parties dry up! In fact there are more functions and we need to be prepared while also being economical. I am a huge fan of Ella Moss and I love this Black Label Samantha One Shoulder Dress (available in black and also in a regal plum). This has the perfect amount of sass that you would want to take to a final summer house party, a release of a product or anything that means you need to look amazing. The dress is so easy that you need to only think of what heels and what your clutch will look like. If it's a bit chilly, you may want to think of a wrap but other then that you're ready to go! I love that this dress is on sale and looks super cute as well. There are plenty of items from Ella Moss that are currently on ShopBop.com so make sure that you visit the site and start making your list!
My entire department is not decked out in Ikea; however, there are certain elements that I am a fan of. This table top with legs isapart o f the Vika collection. My favorite element of this table top is the clear glass! This so essential for me as a designer when I am tracing. I can place light under the glass and trace my items easily. There is a bit of a ledge across the top that you can use to keep your utensils and other instruments in their place and still accessible!This table is perfect since it can remain flat;moreover, you can also tilt and adjust this as necessary. Growing up, I had a drafting table and this is something that could come in handy for architects and designers alike. The wooden legs are perfect for extra storage as well. What a great way to add this in to your home office!
We have a super cute shop where you can see some of our favorite items that are available for purchase right here at The Kitten Lounge. It will be up and running within the next few days - just in time for the holidays. If you're a designer, find out how you can have your items included within this shop!
I love it! It's official, we're in the holiday season now! It's all about parties, gifts, amazing food and spending time with those that can't wait to see us! I love this time of year, you can deal with the change in temperature since you become so focused on all the good stuff.

I love tea! I am a huge fan! From visiting some of my tea spots (Alice's Tea Cup or Teany) to going to great places to purchasing my own blends, Tavalon - tea is a great way to enjoy the day or to begin it. When I'm not in the office and am at home, I love brewing tea. This teapot from Macy's is my favorite and is one on my list for future gifting. I love that it reminds me of a teahouse of some sort. I love the bamboo handle and it can be used on the stove as well. I love that this pot has such a stylish look and looks well no matter what decor you're attempting within your home. With a variety of teapots to consider, this is a great site to start from! Macy's has tea pots or kettles from a variety of designers (also check out Martha Stewarts Collection as well since she has her line carried here as well). If you love the bamboo look, I'm sure you will find a variety of colors withinh this category! Also, don't skimp on the cups! Keep them fun and stylish.
