Hi guys, just a heads up, we have teamed up with Cost Plus World Market on this post which means it is indeed, sponsored. All of the opinions shared below are, as always, my own! I want to keep everything transparent and make sure you know we only choose to work with brands we really love. OID appreciates your support!It has been a good couple of weeks you guys (well other than a few days of being really sick…blah). A few things: my favorite season and weather have officially arrived, Bella got her teeth cleaned/pulled and she’s like a whole new doggie, I visited Portland to celebrate my friend Jenny’s birthday, we’ve hosted some of our best friends in Boston, and….COST PLUS WORLD MARKET has officially arrived in the Cape! Boom. I really can’t get over how happy I am when I’m in this store! I mean, I’ve said it before here, here and here. I even drove all the way to the Cape (okay, it’s only an hour and fifteen minutes without traffic) feeling sick to be there for the blogger party…that’s how much I love it. Anyway, I wanted to share my experience in the store, what I went home with and what’s on my wish list.
First of all, the Cost Plus World Market store is laid out in organized sections that include: kitchen/dining, art, home decor, food/wine and beer (well, when they get their liquor license that will be filled in), lighting holiday decor, etc. Everything is easy to locate and the store is a breeze to navigate. It’s one of those stores that once you have their layout down, you can run in and find whatever you need in a second…except you will never want to leave once you are in the doors.I had fun seeing a few blogger friends at the party: prim & propah, domestikated life, the boston fashionista, by gabriella & more! It was also great to see the furniture and unique jewelry & boho clothing I have been eyeing in real life. I was pleasantly surprised by the clothing as it’s something I would typically overlook, but some of the pieces caught my eye! MY SHOPPING BAG:
one // linen tobacco flower candle – their candles are to die for, I might be going back to stock up on more Fall candles because I’ve been burning candles every morning when I begin working.
two // gray stripe twill potholder – I went home with a few kitchen items because it’s the one thing I rarely splurge on. I have needed a new potholder like yesterday considering the only one I have has SO many stains on it.
three // marble ceramic candle – again, I LOVE THEIR CANDLES.
four // aluminum scoops – I recently organized some containers in our kitchen and am going to use these scoops for the sugar + flour containers.
five // california olive ranch olive oil – Because we ran out and Cost Plus World Market is so convenient they have everythingggg, including olive oil!
six // white ceramic baker with trivet lid – okay, kate of domestikated life and I were freaking out about these bakers…the lid turns into a trivet, genius! Inexpensive and genius!
seven // wood salt & pepper grinders – because I’ve never owned any! WHAT?!
eight // round marble and wood pedestal stand – Evie’s FIRST birthday is in ONE WEEK! We are having an outdoor bithday party for her and are going to use these pedestal stands for food + flowers on the table.
nine // gold box wine rack – finally invested in a wine rack!
