Pre-Fall Wish List











Am I jumping the gun? Is it too early to start scouting for fall stuff? Well, I'm kind of over summer clothes already. I've gotten plenty of dresses, shorts and tank tops and I'm ready to take my boots and skinny jeans back. Here's a little taste of what I have my eye on...even if it's not August yet!

Recent Favorites

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

One of my favorite parts about blogging is sharing and discovering new products, trends and random things like TV shows, books or food. I've only shared my random collection of favorite things a few times but I'm considering making it a regular feature. So here goes!



Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream -- I hadn't jumped on the BB cream bandwagon until now. I didn't want to spend a lot, especially since I had never tried BB cream before but I'm glad I picked this up. It's light, has good coverage and is a good swap for regular foundation. Great product for cheap!



Sonia Kashuk brush set -- I snagged this brush set on sale at Target last week and so far so good! I really like the blush and foundation brushes, which is what I was looking for anyway. Plus they have a cute design on the handles!  


Ann Taylor dress & necklace (necklace on major sale!) -- Here I am yet again sharing another wedding outfit. I found this great, classic dress at Ann Taylor of all places! The sales girl helped me pick out this necklace to match and I think it will make a perfect wedding outfit as well as an ideal ensemble for a work gala I have coming up in August. 


John Freida Sheer Blonde shampoo & conditioner -- I saw this product in an article and randomly decided to try it out. I haven't seen any 'blonde' results quite yet but so far I like the texture and smell. We'll see if I get lighter locks!


Narragansett Del's Shandy beer -- This is the perfect summer shandy! Narragansett and Del's lemonade, need I say more?





What are some of your favorite things right now?

Weekend Outfit

Monday, July 28, 2014

Tank (Gap, still on major sale!), Jeans (Hudson), Sandals (Jack Rogers), Clutch, (Gigi NY), Necklace (Kendra Scott)



Wearing this Gap tank top yet again! It's been one of my best buys this summer because it's so light and loose and looks great with a statement necklace. On Friday night it was cool enough to wear jeans so I went for an all light colored look with the addition of my Kendra Scott necklace, of course. (I think I wear that too much but I just love it!) 


Hope everyone had a great weekend!!!

Friday Reads

1. Can't wait for Homeland to start again, very curious to see what they will do this season, given what happened at the end of last season! 

2. Interesting conversation with the real Larry from Orange is the New Black. 

3. Does anyone else still watch Pretty Little Liars? Well if you (unfortunately) do, check out this new theory.

4. I used to be obsessed with America's Next Top Model. Thanks to BuzzFeed you can relive all the funny and crazy moments. 

5. This is a pretty funny satire of what fashion bloggers instagram on a daily basis. 

6. Seafood just fits with summer and this dish looks yummy and easy. Easy being my main requirement!




Happy Friday!

Wedding Guest Staples






It's wedding season and if you're invited to more than one wedding it can be hard to figure out what to wear without buying a new dress for each occasion. I've realized that I have lots of good options that are already in my closet and all I need is the right accessories. An LBD, navy blue dress or a basic shift dress can always work with some bright or metallic accessories.

Weekly Wish List








This week I'm sharing some great deals that are still available in the Nordstrom sale. I finally pulled the trigger and ordered these Kendra Scott earrings (I got the emerald green ones but they are sold out). I'm considering buying this Baublebar necklace as well. They also have some bargains on boots for the fall and workout gear. May as well stock up on stuff while it's marked down!



Happy shopping!

Weekend Recap

Monday, July 21, 2014





This weekend flew by! On Friday, I went with my bf and my dad to watch Citizen Kane outdoors at the Boston Harbor Hotel. Then Saturday was my brother's friend's wedding at a country club in Ipswich. Before the wedding, I went to Nordy for a makeover and picked up some Mac goodies (eyeshadow in swish, in extreme dimension lash mascara, mineralize gloss in modern romance). And before I knew it, it was Sunday night and time to get ready for the week. Whew! 




Hope everyone's having a tolerable Monday!
