Sneak peek into Rhode Island’s first The Container Store

16 May

Every organizers dream is coming true! Rhode Island’s very first The Container Store is opening up this weekend in Cranston, RI. This will be there 66th store to date.

I couldn’t help but squeal with excitement when I was arriving at the VIP party last night. As an organizer and fanatic of revamping my household, I couldn’t even contain myself when I stepped foot in there.


As I walked around, I was so impressed with how everything was laid out and that each department was not overwhelming.

Here’s a look into some of my favorite things that I will most definitely be purchasing:

For Travel

Drawstring Jewelry Pouch~ Durable, water-resistant and made from nylon. It has a padded base and it has a drawstring closure.

Waterproof Pouches~Ingenious SealLock™ closure keeps water,  sand and dirt out. The ultra-clear window allows for full use of touch screen and voice options.

Critter Luggage Tags and Destination Stripe Luggage Tags  ~ These tags are so cute and different! Make your luggage stand out with any of the above. Both are made from durable plastic.                       

Pack This! Classic Checklist~ Can we say this list is genius!? Even for the most organized person, it’s great to have on hand to remind you of things you need to take when you’re traveling.

For the Home ~ Closet edition

The Container Store is known for their elfa line. This is one thing, I need to get my hands on. You can either go into the store and meet with an elfa expert or try and design your very own design on line. It’s amazing how any closet space can be totally utilized if done correctly.

Primary Tubular Hangers ~ I’m ususally one to just pick white or maybe one color. But I love the idea of maybe using a color for my shirts and another color for pants, etc.

Our Shoe Boxes ~  Exclusive to The Container Store only, these clear plastic boxes are wonderful to have for your shoes. If you looked into my closet (which I have posted on here) I have all my shoes in their boxes, but it is sometimes hard to tell which shoe is which. These boxes are brilliant!!

For the Bathroom & Laundry Room

Sometimes our bathrooms and laundry rooms don’t get enough love or organization that they should.

Acrylic Lipstick Risers and 12-Section Acrylic Nail Polish Riser ~ Both are made with durable clear acrylic, which makes them long lasting. The acrylic nail polish riser is exclusive to The Container Store.

Large Overcabinet Hair Dryer Holder~ This is what I need in my life. I’m so tired of just throwing my hair dryer under my sink and making it get tangled with everthing. This overcabinet holder is perfect! It’s made from metal with a nickel finish.

3-Section Acrylic Hinged-Lid Box~I don’t know why I never thought to put my three things together but this would make my morning routine a little bit easier and more organized.

Large Micro Mesh Bra Wash Bag~Now this. This I need. I have mesh bags that I wash my delicates in and usually put my bras in so they don’t get ruined, but this will keep the shape of our bras, which is the most important.

White 2-Drawer Mesh Organizer~ I can’t even explain how much I love these. I have them in my bathrooms and my kitchen. They helped keep the underneath so much more organized. No more of just throwing things under the sink to never be seen again.

For the Jewels

How many of us keep our jewelry out on our bureaus or in those tiny little pouches? I know I’m guilty of it. These organizers allow you to see what you have. Jewelry of all kinds, is meant to be worn and seen! Let it stand out ladies!

Premium Acrylic Chest~This is what I need to have in my life. I love the whole idea of being able to see it right there in front of you, displayed beautifully.

Expandable Jewelscope Jewelry Tree by Umbra~This tree features 8 branches and expands from 15″ to 23-1/2″ in height. Perfect for some of those long necklaces you may have.

Small Stacking Acylic Trays ~ These are also another affordable way to keep your jewelry looking organized. It’s 100% acrylic the tray has 8 adjustable dividers.

I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek and have created some ideas of your own. Make sure to stop by their Grand Opening this weekend!!!! The Container Store has partnered with Crossroads Rhode Island is donating 10% Grand Opening Sales to them.

Can’t wait to hear what you all think! What will be something you definitely want to buy?

Happy organizing!



A new piece that I love

3 Apr

What girl doesn’t love a little bit of black and gold?! I got this piece from Ettika, an online jewelry company, that has all sorts of fun, gorgeous pieces. I chose this bracelet because I wear a lot of black and gold is definitely in now.

While traveling in NYC, I knew this piece would go with my going out outfit. I wore my dark blue skinny jeans from Forever 21, my faux leather peplum top from Express,  jeweled headpiece from Flaunt Boutique, ring from Laila Rowe, and my last final touch was my new love, my bracelet from Ettika.

NYC night out


Definitely head on over to Ettika’s page and see all of their fabulous jewelry!! I can’t wait to add to my collection.


Happy shopping!


Friday Favorites

12 Oct

With the help of one of my favorite blogs, LaurenConrad.com, I thought I’d do my very own Friday Favorites segment. It’s a great idea to reflect upon my week and see what kinds of trends, ideas, foods, etc. that caught my eye.

Favorite Jewelry Piece

I have my favorite Marc Jacobs silver watch for my everyday wear, but for the few times a week that I may wear anything with a gold tone, I’m in a desperate need of a gold tone watch. While “window” shopping on Macys.com, I found this really stylish and affordable Style & Co. watch!!! I think I may have to just buy it.


Favorite Mid-Week Bite

I have been completely obsessed with zucchini lately. I will eat it any way possible. I’ve also been eating a lot of bean sprouts.


Favorite Fall Show of the Week

Now that fall has finally arrived, I’ve been so excited that my tv line up has reappeared. This week, and many more to come I’m sure, is Revenge. If you haven’t seen this show, you are totally missing out!!! You need to get on this train and watch with me.


Favorite Pinterest Idea

I’m so proud of myself with this one. I was s around on Pinterest last weekend and came across an idea. The next day I was shopping around at Home Goods and put together this really cute centerpiece for my kitchen table.



Fall Look

LOVE this look!!! It’s perfect for a dress down Friday at work or catching up with your girlfriends on a Saturday! I must recreate this!



Favorite Treat

Now that fall is here, my favorite treat to have to warm me up is Starbucks hot chocolate. Definitely my guilty pleasure!



What are some of your favorites??? Feel free to share some 🙂
Happy Friday!!!
