Shop and Bop

To get you in the spirit of Black Friday, SHOPBOP has started their BIG event sale!
You can enjoy up to 25% off with code BIGEVENT13.
I have this Gorjana ring and this Alexander Wang in my shopping cart.
And  you can get this dress, that you may have seen on fellow blogger Merritt Beck!
Happy Shopping!
I’m the everygirl…
I enjoy fun times, family, pampering and most importantly shopping.
But my favorite things to shop for are handbags, jewelry and shoes!
I never get tired of shoe shopping, most days when on a shoe hunt
my friends and I shut down the stores.  We are the first ones in and the last ones out.
I remember a time while out shoe shopping, 6 hours had passed.
And so did my spending limit. I left one store with 10 pair! Yikes! So, Yes, I’ll admit it…
Last month I decided I was going to take a que from blog friend
I was going to track my spending in hopes to spend less. Since this is my first month,
I am not yet how I’m doing, check back in May for that.
Although, I feel like I will be spending more, since it’s my birthday month.
Good excuse, right?

Here’s where did my April greenbacks went…NARS // Blush  $25
(I had a coupon at Sephora, Thanks Alex!)
ZARA // blazer, tiger shirt, neon sweater $130
Rebecca Minkoff // Zodiac Necklace and Earrings

I am in complete decorating mode, I guess because I am finally done with my office.
 I am sooooo ready to move on to the next…breakfast nook and living room here I come.
I am definitely adding one of these beauties to our living room,
I have been eyeing them on JAYSON for a few months
and having been trying to figure out where I would place, if I purchased.
Well, think no more I am placing my order and adding to our living room.
And since mother’s day is around the corner I also picked out a few gifts for your viewing pleasure.

Happy Tuesday!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Before you start hitting the online stores and saving your hit list on your browser,
I wanted to wish you all a beautiful Thanksgiving.
I hope you spend your day doing the things you enjoy with the people you enjoy most.
As mentioned earlier this week, I will be home hosting a few close family and friends!
All the while being Thankful for special moments like these.
But no worries, I will also be waiting with breath abated for Black Friday
(I have a Black Friday Sales Post Present for you, check back at 11:50pm CST).
And to get things started, I have put together another gift guide for you!
Happy Thanksgiving!
PS, I’m also thankful for you. Your commitment to reading my blog, gives me the warm fuzzes.
PS, To see what else I’m doing this Turkey day.
I know it’s not Black Friday yet, but a girl still has needs, okay, wants.
Today, I’m totally obsessing everything over the top and girly, like how girly are
these earrings with a bow from Ann Taylor and what about these lace booties? Hello.
And why wouldn’t I want to twirl around the house in a Topshop faux fur snood, while serving cocktails on these coasters from this étagère both from Jonathan Adler? Hello, are you with me?  And then late at night, when I’ve had enough libations, I  would love to sink my head into these dot pillows while listening to smooth sounds with Frends.

OMG!  How Summer is passing!
You know the season is coming to an end
when you start to receive all your Fall (September) magazines.
Exciting, but I must admit I’m going to miss laying by the pool,
but I’m most definitely looking forward to the cooler weather.
I love Fall and Winter ensembles, I truly enjoying mixing and matching layers.
Speaking of layers, have you seen the latest collection from Tory Burch?
Well, here it is….what do you think?
save // sole society carla tote
splurge // alexander wang emile satchel
save // sole society priscilla satchel
splurge// mulberry alexa satchel
Have a great weekend! And remember black is always chic…
yes, I know I’m a corn ball.


I have been so exhausted since the week started,
last night I fell asleep like at 8 in the evening.
Before feeling like I had swallowed an entire bottle of Ambien,
I managed to go through the mail…in it, was the latest J. Crew catalog.
I feel head over heels for many of the pieces.
Here are some of my picks…

25% off $150+

PS, You would think that after falling asleep so early, one would feel well rested, but I don’t.
I woke up this morning still sleepy, a bit cranky and hungry.
Happy Hump Day!


Howdy! And welcome to Monday!
I am having a great day thus far…
I guess because I did exactly what I said I was going to do…
I got some relaxation!
On Friday, I had lunch with my best friend Melissa,
Saturday, I lounged, went to IKEA and had a massage.
And on Sunday, I had brunch with a good friend
an early dinner with another girlfriend from college.
It was nice to catch up with my girls.

Anyhow, my entire reason in traveling to IKEA was to purchase frames
for my recent art [here and here];
it is also likely that I will be making a return visit this weekend for this piece.
You say, what’s up with all the art purchases, well, I am still working on
the decor for my home office.
It is almost complete, Yay!

I need to add a few more pops of color, so today I am headed over here.

Welcome to Friday!
I am so excited for the weekend, not that I have BIG plans
I’m just excited to relax.
I’m just as excited to bring you this MIMIC today,
it has been way to long.
Not to mention, I have been eyeing all things lucite
so when I came across a MIMIC
of course, I had to share it with you lovelies.
