A-Z Series: B is For

I am so happy to introduce my first guest blogger for the A-Z series: Alex from Things That Sparkle!  Alex has some serious talent when it comes to interior design.  You can see what I mean for yourself as she just showed us this partial reveal of her condo. She is also in the middle of planning her wedding and has some great wedding inspiration weekly.  Hers is sure to be beautiful, like extremely beautiful.  You can find out even more about her and see some of her exquisite work here. Enjoy!

Hi all, I am Alex from Things That Sparkle and I am so excited to be here today sharing all of my favorite "B"s with you! There were so many amazing things to choose from, it was hard to narrow down to just a couple... but here are the Bs that made the cut


Anything ballet related. Is there anything more girly and glamorous?
ban.do crystal head piece. I love this for a glamorous bride!
West Elm B hand towel. I have one of these in my kitchen, and love the idea of being able to monogram it with my last name initial! 
Donald Baechler artwork! This tulip piece is amazing. Love the creepy little face.
Bacon. Need I say more??
Hair braids. Such a fun alternative to a pony tail or bun. (via)

...........

Thanks so much for participating Alex!  I can't get enough of braids lately either, and bacon, well yes I do love it.

Some of my favorite B items:
  • Boyfriend B (well, obviously)
  • Blazers
  • BaubleBar
  • Burberry 
  • Berry smoothies
  • Bright colored belts
  • Blogs & blogging (too obvious?)
  • Bucky Badger
  • Bloomingdales
What are your favorite B items?
