Wedge love

I think I’m in love with my new Guess wedges! I found these little cuties at Marshalls last weekend and I had to pick them up! You can pair them with a cute maxi dress, jeans and a cute top and pretty much anything. The color is fab and will surely make any outfit stand out.

Save your gift cards for a rainy day!

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted, but last month was a little crazy! During that month, I decided to use a few of my gift cards that I received for my birthday and Christmas. I was feeling a little down one Saturday and decided retail therapy was the only way to change my mood around. I was right, it worked. It always does and below you can find a few of the things I picked up.

My first stop was Express. I love Express and I’m pretty sure Express loves me too. I’m always there and they always send me these amazing coupons plus since I racked up a bunch of points for being an A-List member, I received a nice little gift card. I decided to take these pieces home with me and put them to good use!

I’m saving the Kiss Me shirt for St. Patrick’s Day and the dress for a special night, but the two shirts in the middle have already been out on the town. I used the light blue shirt for a night out with my girls and covered it with a cute animal print scarf. I used the hot pink shirt with a black blazer and scarf for a busy Sunday with my family.

Like most girls, jewelry is a must! I love bracelets and I usually wear a ton all at once. I had a Nordstrom gift card and a Macy’s gift card that needed swiping so I used both to add to my jewelry collection. When it comes to jewelry, I usually take the pile it on approach. After all, I started playing dress up at a young age and never stopped.

The first two pieces are from Nordstrom. The bow necklace is from Bonnie Jonas and the “AMOR” bracelet is from BCBG. Lastly, I fell in love with this amazing Onyx gold and sterling silver square ring at Macy’s. I haven’t take it off since it came home with me and I really think it is one of the best rings I have.

Lastly, I didn’t have a gift card for these two items but I couldn’t resist. I’ve been looking for a ring/bracelet for a long time now and when I stopped by Aldo’s Accessories, it was love at first sight. I also decided on the cute cross earrings.

My day at the mall was definitely a mood changer. I’m always one to save my gift cards for a rainy day.

You can use any of the colors in the kit to come up with your own version of “dark” or “light” caster look. I chose these colors because it was my personal choice. You can also go lighter or darker and add a red lipstick for the dark caster look. I suggest you pick up the Beautiful Creatures Pur Minerals Makeup Kit so that you can play with the colors.

Shopping Day with Mom

I spent my Saturday afternoon with my mother and we decided to shop since that is what we love! We didn’t really have anything specific in mind just a little mom and daughter fun! We stopped at Kirklands, which I used to hate and now I totally love. I think it’s all part of growing up and having your own place to decorate. We ended up buying a bunch of amazing wall art for my house at a very reasonable price since mostly everything in the store was on clearance. I highly suggest you stop by if you’re in need of home decor. Below you will find pictures of my purchases! I’m totally in love with every single piece and they are already up on my walls.

Since we were already in the shopping center, we headed over to another one of my favorite places, Marshalls. As usual I found a ton of stuff that would fit perfectly in my closet. I decided on three pieces, two blouses and a dress; based on the fit and style. Pictures below! Both blouses were a hit with my friends and family this weekend! I paired the first blouse with printed leggings, gold accessories and nude pumps for dinner and drinks on Saturday night and the second blouse I paired with jeans, gold accessories and flower printed heels! I have not worn the dress but I’m pretty sure I’ll wear it this weekend.

Accessorize your life

A little accessorizing can spice up any outfit and I’m all about the accessories! From belts to jewelry to bags, wallets, eye wear, scarves and hand bags, accessories are what can complete your look. Target is one of my go to stores because I always find an item to add to my closet. There’s always a cute dress, shoes I can’t live without, accessories or all of the above. Check out the cute belts I picked up on clearance for $3 each!! I will definitely be putting them to good use.

A dress a day keeps the doctor away

I love to shop and dresses are a huge part of my wardrobe! Last Saturday I had the urge to get out and look for something cute to add to my closet and of course I found not one but two amazing dresses that I can dress up or dress down for any occasion. I headed to Memorial City Mall but parking was ridiculous and decided to go down the street to Marshall’s.

You can find great shoes, accessories, clothes and even home decor at Marshall’s.  I found the two cute dresses below for less than $20 each. They fit great and you can add a scarf and tights to both to add a little personal touch and keep warm if it’s cold outside.

My Nails for New Year’s Eve 2012

Saturday afternoon I decided to head to the nail salon and visit my favorite manicurist, ERIC! He’s amazing and his nail designs are fabulous. Luxury Nails & Spa is located on Clay Rd and Westway Park Blvd. It’s right down the street from the beltway and easy to spot. If you love getting your nails done and love designs, check Eric out because he won’t let you down! I always hit up this spot for mani’s and pedi’s, the staff is really nice and there’s never a long wait.
