I love writing and receiving thank you cards.

The art of writing seems to be a dying craft as we continue to move further and further into a digital world of emails, text messages and the like. But I for one am a sucker for paper crafts and stationary. I love the smell of a new book when you first crack it open.

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, right? I hit a milestone birthday this year and decided to celebrate with a girls trip down to Sin City.

From the vibrant green moss on the wall to the soaps and linens on the shelves, this store just smells damn good.
