Tuesday Ten: Spice Up Your Kitchen!

I’ve been doing a lot of online shopping for kitchen goodies lately since I’m working on getting everything together for my new kitchen. (Move in day cannot come soon enough!) When I first started this retail adventure, I only found boring appliances and plain kitchen tools…and then I struck gold. Over, and over, and over again! Today I’ll be sharing 10 sweet finds to spice up your kitchen (pun intended). Check them out below and get ready to revamp your cooking space!

1. Hand towels. I ordered a few different hand towels from this line. They are adorable!

2. Blend me pink! I thought this blender was much cuter than a basic black or white one. (I think it would really up my smoothie game.)

3. Mix it up. I love my standing mixer and use it all the time. But they are a little pricey. A hand mixer is an affordable alternative. This pink one is cute.

4. An apron! I love collecting aprons. They’re lifesavers when you’re having guests over and you’re still working with food and don’t want to ruin your outfit. Anthropologie has a bunch of cute ones.

5. Measure up. Who says measuring cups have to be bland? These hedgehog ones are too darn cute. I love this milk bottle set, too.

6. Colorful cast-iron. I just got one of these cast-iron Dutch ovens for my birthday. It adds such a lovely pop of color to my cookware.

7. Add some art. I have found a lot great kitchen art on Etsy. This Lettuce Turnip the Beet print is adorable. I also like the one pictured above, available here. Or you can make your own

8. Salt n’ Peppa. Add a dash of personality to your kitchen with some sweet shakers such as this elephant pair from ModCloth. You can also find great sets at flea markets, too.

9. Fun flatware! I think these are adorable. I actually bought the iron stamps to do it myself, but it’s really hard to do.

10. Cork it! Never use a boring bottle stopper again. I’ve always thought this bow stopper from BHLDN is so sweet.

    Love these ideas! I spend a lot of time in my kitchen and love the quirky and colorful accents, such as my pink stand mixer, owl salt & pepper shakers, and heart shaped measuring cups!


  • Macy Gutermuth

    Perfect timing for this blog! I am moving within the next few weeks, and my kitchen was the only room I haven’t decided on a theme for!

  • Camille

    I have been DYING for a red KitchenAid mixer for years. Unfortunately, I don’t cook/bake enough to get my money’s worth out of it!
    I am particular in awe of the Swarovski Crystal KitchenAid mixer. (go to Bing.com images and type that in) I’ve never loved a mixer more. LOL

    My favorite would have to be the apron! You can still stay chic in the kitchen :)


  • Alyssa

    These are all such good ideas! I love the apron. I will definitely be buying one like that since I’m also a baker, and always end up with some sort of flour or dough on me. I also love the adorable hedgehog measuring cups. Adding cute touches to your kitchen makes spending time in it even better. :)


  • Amber

  • Renuka

    I love the fun flatware! That sugar spoon is too cute!


  • Anna

    Where’s your favorite place to get basic t-shirts? My favorite used to be forever 21 but they lose their shape and shade so quickly you have to buy a new one every few wears. I LOVE everlane’s tees and have been ordering them ever since Lo Bosworth tweeted about them last winter. They’re sustain their color and are relatively cheap ($15) compared to constantly repurchasing F21 ones.


    Have you found good tees and from where?!

  • Ashley McDougall

    I like this fun post! The bottle stopper and sugar spoon are adorable :)

  • Gabrielle

    The sugar spoon is my favorite!


  • My Style Diary
