I have been obsessed with pineapples before they became a trend. A friend of mine once shared the funniest story about pineapples and since then, every time I saw something pineapple related I thought of him. Being from the south, they are also a welcoming sign of hospitality so it’s no wonder why I incorporating pineapple decor for the shemakescents office was a must. I was on the hunt to replace my desk lamp since the layout of the new shemakescents office is totally different that where I blogged since 2011. Then it came down to two options.
The more expensive lamp gave me the chic and slightly playful design and I wanted to blend into the design. What it was lacking was respect to my budget. I kept looking and while shopping at Hobby Lobby one day with my best friend, I found the exact lamp I was looking for; aesthetically and financially. In fact, I loved it more for the gold accents that match other gold accents in the office. Retailing at $59.99 + the 40% off coupon that I use EVERY TIME I shop at Hobby Lobby, I ended up paying $36.00 (not including taxes). This has been my favorite decor steal, thus far, for the shemakescents office!
