Hello My Name is Nivia… and I’m an Addict

My addiction ETSY!!!!!

It is amazing how many awesome things you can find on Etsy.  I can only compare it to Amazon my second love.  Mostly everything I buy these days are between these two sites. They even have an iPhone app so I can take my addiction on the road.

I also love the fact that the site has a wide selection of indie designers and artisans who are providing nice products at reasonable prices.  And if you to are interested in selling something you like setup is easy and cheap to have your own e-commerce site.

But seeing how I am working hard to keep a budget I window shop Etsy everyday just for home decor inspiration and to see all the other lovely things the site has to offer.

Here are some of the things I added to my favorites most recently.

Empress Vanilla Spice Shea Butter

Combination Bracelet

Washi Tape

Sconce Bookshelves

Wooden Stamp

Cast Iron Soap Dish/ Business Card Holder

Send-me-Your-Overalls Bag

MILFs?? Maybe, but they are Moms who keep it looking Fab

We all know motherhood isn’t boring.

But many of us aren’t sure how to keep our look as current as we are.

These moms have made a science out of cultivating their style and their kids.
