Shopper's Delight

Happy Friday!!!

Hey friends,
So I recently discovered an awesome website...well two awesome websites actually for jewelry. BaubleBar and JewelMint. I'm sure if you have been on lots of fashion blogs you already know these sites but I am always late with stuff so I just got the memo.
Of course I've already bought stuff because they both have free shipping which is AMAZING!!!

What I love about JewelMint is that you can choose your jewelry based on your style preferences. They show you the stuff that aligns to your taste. Also everything is 29.99 and if you sign up you can get up to 60% off your first purchase which is great.

I got the Here to Eternity set. I love the layered necklace look and when I saw this, I thought it would be perfect to achieve the look without the work. I'm a lazy fashionista. I got 60% off so it was a steal.
Here to Eternity Set
Over at BaubleBar, the prices vary on items but again there is free shipping which takes the edge off. Also, you can sign up for the ten dollar deals they have weekly. It's kind of a scavenger hunt of sorts, they send you a clue and you go looking for the item in the collection. Once you find it, you click on a little logo and poof, the item is yours for ten bucks. It's pretty cool.
There are a few pieces I'm lusting after. They are all wait-listed because of their popularity. I saw several bloggers wearing the necklaces so I can only imagine how many people wanted them.
I got 10 bucks off for my first purchase so I picked up a necklace that has been featured on the Today Show.

Brights are in for spring and I love colors so the necklace I got will be a perfect addition to my wardrobe. I got it in blue.
Here are some of the pieces I'm drooling over. Hopefully I'll be able to snag one of them when they come back in stock.



Check out these sites and enjoy all the amazing stuff they have.
Ciao!!

My birthday is just around the corner, well in a month but no need to be technical.
Here are just a few of the things I'm wishing for. Maybe there is a birthday fairy somewhere who thinks I'm special who will gift me something from my list. We shall see.

1. Classic Timex Watch. I love that you can change the straps ($30)
2. Kate Spade pouch ( can be used as a clutch). I love Kate Spade so anything will do. ($38 on sale)
3. Red Toms, cause I'm in-love with the color red these days and I want a pair of Toms. ($44)
4. Marc Jacobs watch. very pricey compared to the rest of my list ($150)
5. ASOS clutch ($22)
6. ASOS Slot Through Portfolio Clutch ($28)
Ciao!!
P.S. Birthday fairy, if you are real, I'll be pleased as punch with anything. 

Lust Worthy

Hey friends,
I'm enjoying my vacation, just relaxing and lots of Internet browsing. This means there are lots of material things that catch my eyes and being the shopaholic  (I'm working on it people.) I am, I WANT it all.

Here are just as few of this week's lust worthy items. I doubt I'll be buying all of these things but I can still dream.

Red Hunter Rain Boots


What's better on a gloomy rainy day than a bright pair of rain boots? I love the way Patience styled hers, she is still very stylish and chic.

Check her out HERE

I've noticed a lot of leopard these days; on celebs, the runway and the streets. I  love a great clutch and I love leopard, so this is the perfect marriage for me. This clutch from ASOS is reasonably priced and versatile. Throw it on with some jeans or a fancy dress.However you want to style it, there is no wrong way in my book.
ASOS Leather Leopard Envelope Clutch – $37

Ok, so I'm a perfect nerd. I am a sucker for pens and I just discovered the Paper-mate Flair pens. I love everything about them. The colors are awesome, they write  well and do not bleed through. They are currently on sale at Staples for 10 bucks for a 12 pack. Go grab a pack and I guarantee you'll be addicted.

There you have it folks. Hope you enjoyed.

Ciao!

Hair Envy

I can't remember where I got this picture, I was blog hopping and I forgot to get the info. Sorry!!!
Well, I love her twist out. I can't wait until I grow my little Afro up some more to achieve a fuller look. I hope it will look like this. We shall see.

Check out my new look. I re-did my crochet braids. I am a pro now and I love the style.
P.s I heart Instagram.

Birthday Outfit

Birthday Outfit
My birthday is approaching and even though I have no real plans, I have this really hot outfit in mind. If I had lots of money and a special place in mind, I would wear something like this.

I love the style of the dress and the details. It's fancy without being over the top.
The leopard heels are killer! They are sexy and chic.
The rest of the outfit is pretty understated. A bright clutch and earrings because I can't leave home without them.

It's Spring

It's Spring


In my head I think it's spring. The weather in NY has been amazing some days. On those days, I want to hang my heavy coat up permanently and step out in a pretty scarf and warm weather shoes.
So as a tribute to the much dreamt of Spring days, I offer this little outfit set.

I love the loose white top. It's perfect for the season.Paired with a pretty necklace in a bold color or scarf and you have an easy but chic outfit.

The shoes are the best part of this outfit for me. I have been obsessively searching for something similar for a reasonable price but have been unsuccessful. I love them and I must keep trying. There will be a sale somewhere and I will stumble upon them (positive thinking).
