I Lilac You A Lot - Valentine's Day 2020


I have always loved any holiday that comes around, going down the candy isles and finding all the sweets I DON'T need! I have been wanting Lilly Pulitzer to come out with more Holiday prints so I can wear it when the time comes. This year they met my Valentine's Day needs with the print Lilac You A Lot. Who else is obsessed with the adorable quotes and items they added in the print. I ordered the Elliana Pullover this past Saturday for the preorder and hope it comes this week! However, I ordered my usual size and so many people are saying it ran small! Fingers crossed it looks okay on me!

Anyone else make a purchase from this Valentine's Day collection? Can we also talk about the Ramona they brought out, that pink is STUNNING!










2019 Favorites

Happy 2020! It is a new year and a new decade. Over the past year, I have gained some new favorites I will bring into many years. I wanted to share these items that I have been in love with!



Conair hairdryer
This is hands down the best hair tool I have ever used. I got this during Black Friday and wish I had it sooner! It is so worth $60 and you usually can find it on sale or use your Ulta points to get money off!

Humidifier
I recently had a terrible cold and wanted to get a Humidifier for my bedroom. This one from Amazon is amazing and so cute!

Barrington Small Wallet
I bought this for myself this past fall so I can keep a few cards that I always need with me. I love having a small wallet on my keys so it makes running into somewhere so simple!

Amazon Jeans
Have you ever worn something too many times you should admit? These "jeans" are literally the only jeans I want to wear now. Hands down the best ever.

Short Bean Boots
I needed a pair of boots to wear on rainy days but didn't always want to wear my taller bean boots. These are so easy to pull on and head out the door with whatever I am wearing.

Lilly Market Tote
These market totes are so amazing, the quality of them got better! I have a few of these I keep on hand and are perfect for any use!

Target blanket
I found these blankets a while ago, I love having lightweight small blankets laying around. These are soft and so cheap! Also, you can never have too many blankets.

Iced Caramel Macchiato
This year I found a new Starbucks drink that I am obsessing over. I don't go there as much as I used to, but when I go I want to get this drink.










Cozy Up in Lilly




This is one print I couldn't wait for it to release. A print with DOGS! YES PLEASE!
I am obsessed with Lilly Pjs and thought these are super cute! These would be great gifts for the holidays coming up. I personally will probably buy these and want the blanket so bad!





Do you like the dogs? Lilly has always done so many animals over the years and not sure when there has been a dog print. I love the pink and blue colors with so many breeds of dogs on them! Super cute for a puppy lover (like me).


Figured I'd add these as well, talk about Target killing it with the slippers! I thought these were all so cute! I have two slippers from Target in years past, truly so amazing!






Most Wonderful Time of the Year



It has been well over a year since I have written a blog post. Today, I wanted to do a simple post of Target's selection for Christmas decorations! Some of these I already have from years pasts and the majority are on my list to purchase this year!

It may seem too early for some people for Christmas posts, but I couldn't help but to share these!

I love buying wrapping paper from Target, Sugar Paper is my favorite brand to purchase! The best wrapping is when it all coordinates together.



My favorite colors for ornaments are usually gold, silver, blush, and white. These are a few favs.



Imagine walking to these as you stockings! I love the furry ones!



Just a few others that I would love to decorate with! I plan on purchasing the wreath to hang on my bedroom door! I love it! I have a few of the reindeer figures and they are so cute!

1. What is one candle you MUST light every fall?





Mahogany Teakwood from Bath & Body Works, I have had so many of these and truly think this is my all time favorite Candle!









2. When you think of fall, what does it remind you of?





All the tree leaves changing colors and feeling the cool air when I leave my bedroom window open. Something about the fresh air after the humid summer days feels amazing. I love the sunsets and excuse to wear slippers and robes around the house!

All of the Harry Potter movies are a big favorite to watch during the Fall season. I am not the biggest fan of Halloween movies... So I really don't watch any of them.

My pajamas on that night? I haven't really dressed up in years - usually at home doing homework and watching tv with my mom.





5. What is your favorite fall trend?





Vests, Flannels, and boots! I could go on about my favorite outfits to wear during the fall, just a change of season means different outfits to wear! So ready to wear boots with jeans and a vest with flannel!

Anything warm. Love a vanilla mocha I made at home. I am not the biggest Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks, but may get one every so often.

I love getting fresh pumpkin seeds out and my mom will roast them! They are so delicious! Other than that, just enjoying a change of season! Oh and watching Clemson football games!! 





10. The moment of truth, is fall your favorite season?





To be honest, it has been a favorite recently. I truly love all the fall outfits! I used to think I loved Summer, something about some cooler weather from sweating so much is much nicer!





Happy October guys, just trying out this Blogtober and hope you will do the same! It was fun to round up a few Fall favorites! 


Barrington Purse Review


I recently caved in and purchased my first Barrington bag. I can't believe it took me this long to finally buy one! Today I wanted to share some pictures of the one I purchased and give you a review of it! 

















I decided to go with the St. Anne Petite Handbag. I love this deer fur print - no its not real, just printed! I have always loved this one and had to get it. 









I did want to get my M stamped on the leather patch. I thought about doing my full initials, but I really didn't want MAN on it... Yes that is my initials lol... 









The quality of this bag is unbelievable! The leather is beautiful and very nice, I hope it holds up very well. I believe the outside is like a nylon and compares to what my Longchamp bags feel like. The inside is lined, which I do have a picture below. 









Each bag comes with a dust bag - which I find a must have when you pay a nice penny for something! And of course came with an adorable Barrington sticker, who doesn't want more stickers?!









This is the inside of mine. I find this size to hold the perfect amount! The size is very similar to the small size of Longchamp purses I have. 









Has one zipper pocket on one side then two open pockets on the other side. 









To break things down more serious. I have only had this purse for a few weeks now. The day I got the purse, I told my mom that I want more from Barrington. I now want a duffel bag, the original St. Anne bag, makeup bag, and so many more from their site. If you haven't been on the site - go now! Play around with each style create your own bag and make that purchase! My first thoughts were amazed and impressed by the fabulous quality! You may not like the deer fur print, there are so many other options. You can add stripes to prints and monograms. So many options to customize your own bag! 


InstaRounds - Beauty Favs


Today I am sharing more details behind my recent Instagram posts. Even will be giving you direct links to what is in the picture!









Love these NARS lippies




During the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I had to purchase these lippies by NARS. I love my lip products and couldn't pass up a great deal for high end makeup! I have only a few of these colors a few times, mainly because they just scream FALL to me. So here in the next few months I will be wearing them like crazy! BTW Still the same price as the Nordstrom sale!





THE BEST PALETTES




I love eyeshadow, it is one of my favorite makeup items. When I heard that Urban Decay was discontinuing the original NAKED palette, I found it so hard to believe! Who wants to quit making the OG eyeshadow palette? However I have seen the sneak peak of the new Cherry Naked palette that will be coming out hopefully soon! I will definitely be purchasing it ASAP! Which Naked palette is your favorite? Mine will always be the OG.
The Vault at Nordstrom is $160 right now! Value is $216!





A new perfume favorite!




When you have a customer at work who comes in and they just smell amazing - you must buy what they are wearing! This is my new favorite perfume to wear. It smells so sweet and I want to wear it all the time! I need to get my hands on the lotion in this scent as well!





A recent Ulta haul - who else spends way too much there?




I always love sharing a haul of things I purchased. I made a big order awhile back during a 10X points for Platinum members at Ulta. I may confuse you on how I used my points and gained them on this order. But I paid $66 for all what is showing, which originally all was $190. I used so many of my points to get $128 taken off my order. Then I gain more points so I can use on a future order!
