Things I’m Loving: Fall 2016

I realize that my blog name is just the opposite of what I do on a daily basis– which is shop for unnecessary clothes and home decor…but, whatever sue me. Anyway, here are the things I’m loving lately:

Emily Ley’s Simplified Planner: Not only is this planner organized by month and day, you have the option to use the timed organization on each weekday page. The hours go from 6am- 9pm, so you’ll be pretty much covered, except for the rager you’re going to at 9:30…sorry about that. Anyway, I have the mini gold pineapples on my cover, but there are such great options if golden fruit isn’t for you. Sign up for their emails, you’ll get some great coups.

Kirklands: If you aren’t #blessed enough to have a store near you, go online and say buhbye to your money. No, just smart and download their app. It’s a more organized home goods, and if you know me…I love a good home goods! They have pillows, furniture, and whatever else you def don’t need…but totally want. **Same goes for World Market. That place is a freakin’ castle of treasures.

Caramel Brulee Latte: Yes. This is a Starbucks drink…and yes, I’m aware this makes me look like a complete basic loser, but I’m in love. Go, get a holiday cup and enjoy the sugar coma for a couple hours…it’s worth it.

Lilly Pulitzer Romper: I got mine on sale, but there are plenty of options on the website for an alternative. The closest one to mine is this one. I am slowly buying outfits for my VERY late to the game “honeymoon” in February. I also snatched up this during my last trip in. **It was an essential, so I don’t want to hear it.

Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Deep Gray Matte: As if I wasn’t painting you a nice basic picture of myself just yet…here’s the final nail. This color is literally everything. I’m usually a Nars fan, but I traded in my loyalty for this color…and I’m not looking back, so deal with it. Buy it, and thank me later.

That’s it for now, friends. Stay tuned for an affordable gift guide next week!

Love you, mean it.


Monthly Faves

This whole monthly favorites things goes way over my head…why? Because doing a monthly favorites means that I have to follow a schedule…and homegirl doesn’t follow roads, she makes them. There.

However, my friends like when I do these…and I have to say, I like them too. Why? Because I get to publicly shame myself about the amount of money I spent these past months…along with showing you all the super adorable things that I purchased. Let’s just say, I’ve had better days.

  1. Fleece Lined Leggings: Got these betches from Francesca’s and I couldn’t be happier. We all know that leggings are sometimes not every girl’s best friend…but these act like a cozy boyfriend snuggling you. Not only do they live up to their name, but they are thick! THICK! Leggings that aren’t thin and revealing. Anyway, it’s a good buy if you’re looking for a new pair. If you’re not, consider it…because they’re awesome.
  2. iPhone 6 with Kate Spade Phone Case:  Mostly had to get this because of the whole growing up thing, but I will tell you…what a good purchase. Say what you will about apple products, but there’s something wonderful about a new iPhone. It’s like starting over. Anyway, this phone is more important to me because I bought it, and it’s a symbol of beginning my grown up life. The Kate Spade case? Just a personal touch. It’s pretty and I love it. It’s called the Trapping Dots in navy. Anyway, it’s pretty durable…except that most of these fashion cases are mostly just for show. They aren’t for protection.
  3. Lilly Pulitzer Skipper Printed Popover: Color: Brewster Blue Reel Me In: Expensive? Yes. Worth it? Yes. It’s a cross between a casual work-out top and a cozy snuggle shirt. My vote? I’m into it…and you should be too. I’ve been wearing it non-stop and probably needs to get washed, but I don’t care.  Plus, they come in a bunch of cute patterns and there is even one in a full zip!  This was def. my big frivolous purchase for the month, and I’m okay with it. Don’t judge me. I can feel you judging.
  4. Patagonia Women’s Lightweight Synchilla® Snap-T® Fleece Pullover: I caved, sorry to say. But I keep seeing all these people super warm in PA and I just couldn’t stand it anymore. Yea, this pull-over is everything and more. Is it just me, or do North Face jackets let you suffer while the cold air runs right through the jacket? Just me? I don’t think so. Anyway, they’re having a crazy sale right now, and I’m super jealous that it’s cheaper now than when I bought it…so I’m annoyed.
  5. vineyard vines Patchwork Wallet: Literally the cutest canvas wallet I’ve ever seen. Not only is the quality phenomenal, but the pattern is a classic. I know that my patchwork pattern isn’t being shown anymore, but there are some super cute wallets that are just as wonderful as mine that are available now. Get going and get one, because there is free shipping over $125.00! Add something on and get some free shipping!

Anyway, I can’t believe myself with my money situation…but it’s getting better. Nothing is perfect, and we all deserve a little treat!
