M O T H E R S D A Y // edition
I’ve gathered some fun items that I can promise yo mama will love.  Kicker – they are ALL $50 or less.  Most items are from Nordy’s.  Not only is Nordy’s my all time favorite on-line store, but the icing on the cake – FREE SHIPPING.  Always! Sometimes shipping charges are a deal breaker.  Anyone else feel the same?  Plus it’s triple points time now through May 8th.  Take advantage of that shit.

{wednesday wish list}

I spent an entire lunch break at World Market last week.  I wanted EVERYTHING.  Don’t you hate it when that happens?  You have to remind yourself that you are not rich and you can not buy everything you see…lol.  I suggest you make a World Market trip in the new future to check out some of their new arrivals.  Lot’s of southwest flare + vintage pieces + jade (obsessed).  I’ve linked a few of the items currently on my wish list 🙂
{wednesday wish list}


Edison-Style String Lights // love the look of these vintage style string lights.  They would look great strung across the backyard.


White Punched Metal Lili Drum Stool // a very versatile piece that looks great in a living room or even an outdoor space.  And they come in tons of fun bright colors too.


Hello and Goodbye Doormat // greeting and farewell all in one.  BRILLIANT!!


Wood Edin Serving Tray // how could you not love the vintage-inspired delicate look of this tray.  I picture a beautiful cheese display or how about in the center of a coffee table topped with flowers:)  Check out the whole Edwin collection here.


Jade Colored Glass Pedestal Stand // although this is not classic jadeite, it’s truly beautiful in person.  You cant pass it up with that price tag.


Charcuterie Cutting Board // love the style of this rustic cutting board.  Perfect for entertaining.


Farmhouse Chalkboard // whitewashed farmhouse perfection.  Would make a darling addition to any kitchen to display a weekly menu.


Calypsa Upholstered Hairpin Bench  // the southwest flare of this bench has it at the top of my wish list.  It would be perfect in or master at the foot of the bed.


“Deer Departed” by Vivian Canbelle // I’ve been eyeing this hand-painted canvas for a long time.  Where would I put it?  I have NO idea, but I still want it, bad!!


What’s on your wish list for your home?  Spring always inspires me to freshen up our living space.  I just don’t know where to start.

E A S T E R // Easter basket suffer edition
Can you believe that Easter is only 18 days away?  Me either.  This month is flying by and I realized that I still have my St. Patrick’s Day decor up.  Time to get my Easter goodies bought and shipped before it’s too late.  I try to come up with basket stuffer items each year that I will need to buy anyway.  Swimming goggles + beach towel + rubber flip flops, etc.  Then I search for the cutest options and snag them before they are gone.
Here’s a few of my favorite things for Easter 2016.

S A N D I E G O // edition
Next week I’m off to San Diego to celebrate the bride to be with a bunch of my oldest besties.  I’m also in dire need of vitamin sea.  Stocked up on some of my summer staples a little early in preparation for this trip.  Soooo exciting.  What springy beauties do you have in your shopping carts?  Well, here is a small glimpse of some of my favs in my carts.
{wednesday wish list}


How dope is this VS tassel cover-up?  I always forget to look at VS…they have some really cute stuff right now.
Victoria s Secret clothing

The Target one piece arrived and I love it.  It’s not a granny one piece, I don’t feel 100 years old wearing it 🙂
One piece swimsuit

Old Navy does it again.  So many cute dresses.  They even offered 40% off your entire purchase in-store over the weekend.  I snagged this dress for under $20.  Use code: ENJOY today for 30% off adult styles.

Last year the Easter Bunny brought Bailey the donut pool float and it was so much fun.  I see lots of pool/lake days spent with this adorable pineapple float 🙂
Big mouth

I rocked these sandals all last summer, so I was pumped to see they re-release them for 2016.  Run, don’t walk to Old Navy pronto and grab a pair of these.  They come in black too.  They will be your new summer staple, promise.  Use promo code: ENJOY and scoop them up for $18.

J.Crew Straw market tote is my go-to beach bag.  It’s perfection.  Light weight and folds up nicely.  Use code: SHOPNOW for 25% off.
J Crew tote handbag

I finally broke down and purchased a pair of Ray Ban Aviators.  I’m diggin them.  I feel so Tom Cruise-ish when I pop on these timeless sunnies.
J.Crew ray ban glasses

Did you know that the legendary Panama hat gained its iconic status from President Theodore Roosevelt?  Me either, but I like it!  I love the sun and being in it for hours, but Im all about saving my face.  I actually bought my Panama hat from F21 for $12 and it’s an exact replica of this J.Crew hat.
Straw hat

The ever so popular round beach towel/blanket.  It’s a trendy must for 2016 beach goers.  This Rip Curl version is lovely.

Carry-on Cocktails?  Um, Yes please.  Gin + Tonics too.  I’m sold.  I hate hate hate flying, so I have a feeling you might find one of these tucked in my carry-on for a in-flight cocktail.
Bar tool

Instax are so fun.  Even for the 30 year old crowd.  And you don’t have to worry about these pics being posted all over the internet.  Score.

The Eyelet Midi in Ambrosia Apple.  Gorg, right?  Guess where it’s from?  This dress has been selling out every couple of days.  I cant wait to wear mine paired with sandals and some rad jewelry.

Happy Hump day!!

From the ever so trendy bucket bag, to the classic tote, don’t forget the comfy crossbody and how about a backpack bag? .  Check out these springy neutral colored bags.  I’ve gathered some of my top favorites in stores now.  I even threw in a couple Target finds.  Bet you can’t guess which ones there are?  I now have online shopping carts full of these beauties and can’t decide which one I want to rock.  I’m leaning toward the bucket, but then the backpack yells “pick me, pick me!!”  And I’m lost again.  LOL.  Real problems folks!!

I try to stay away from Target.  For financial reasons.  I walk though those sliding glass doors and lose all control.  Control over whats right + whats wrong.   Lose track of time.  I basically forget about everything in the world….lol.  Soooo, when I do finally allow myself a lunch break Target tip – I go crazy in awww over all the new stuff.  Please tell me I’m not the only one?
Well, this weeks trip proved that Target’s sandal game is on point.  They have some of the cutest sandals right now.  Go quick and get a pair.  They will be gone in a flash.  I tried ALL of the these on.  Loved them all equally.  Then put them all back and left the store.  Remember how I said I loose control?  I put 3 pairs in my cart then said, come on bitch, pick one or go home.  So I went home.  I think I’ve decided the brown slide on hurache style is the one.  Which means, I have to go back…Yesss!!!

A girl ages about 9-14…too old for toys, but too young for boys.

That made me laugh.  It’s so true!  Thank you Urban Dictionary

Anyone else having a helluva time Christmas shopping for their tween?  Every time I ask for ideas, I get nothing.  Well, other than the completely unrealistic wants of a tween.
