Hi Everyone, I'm still around and really miss blogging! I finally got a new laptop, just need internet at home, which should be installed at the apartment this weekend. But I will say blogging from Starbucks can be fun, after all I'm a Gold Card Starbucks member - lol. Hello cheap re-fills and free syrups, lol. Anyways we hope to have internet connection at home, which will make blogger much easier because I have so much to share! And you all know I'm a talker, lol. I've been doing a lot of thinking about of kitchen layout and style, I can't wait to share more ideas when its a little more settled.
So for the time being I've been focusing on my kitchen wants, as in all the pretty & practical stuff that makes up a kitchen (accessories). I've decided this time around, I want my kitchen to be organized, pretty and me (and the fam bam) because after all the kitchen is the heart of the home. I've been collecting ideas for my kitchen and here are few accessories I'm so looking forward to enjoying in my kitchen, I've already checked off a couple of wants :)
Cooking & Baking: My number one must have kitchen accessories is more like a star of the kitchen! I'm in love with the Kitchen Aide Artisan Mixer with a glass bowel. I recently replaced the the original one I bought a few weeks before the fire and never got a chance to blog about it. I'm so happy to have one again just in time for the holidays :) I love large glass jars, they are perfect for dry goods: cereal, flour and sugar etc. I planing on buying a few again for my kitchen. I also love how versatile they are, I used one for Avery's birthday party to hold salad. A super large cutting board will also be a must, I plan to use those plastic cutting board on-top of pretty wood one for easy cleanup. I love all the spice jars at Cost Plus, they have a great selection and this time around, I'm might go with the aqua lid spice jars. I also used those for party favors for Avery's birthday party, I filled them with sprinkles. I've been wanting a dutch oven, pretty since forever, I plan on buying the one above from World Market this weekend, thanks to a 25% off coupon I have!

Dinnerware, Linens & Art: I love the clean look of white dinnerware, recently I've seen some pretty sets at Target, and Macy's, I can't wait to add a set to my new kitchen. To mix in some whimsy with all my white dinnerware, I plan on getting a few sets of salad plates from West Elm, the owl ones have me at hello. I adore cake stands, I recently bought the above cupcake stands a few days ago at Macy's on clearance, its great finding good deals. Fun colorful dish towels are also a must, to be honest I just buy a couple for looks and use plain white ones I can bleach :) I'm also looking forward to hanging artwork on my kitchen walls, I love the Etsy seller Anek, her colorful prints make me smile, I want one of her prints in my kitchen and a large one for my dining room.
