Good Morning Bb’s!

Happy Thursday!! In case you forgot/are trying to ignore the holly jolly music everywhere you go.. We are only TWO little weeks away from Christmas!!! (My fave holiday ever!) I’ve been super on top of Christmas this year.  Ie: decking the halls, hanging twinkly lights, lighting yummy candles, singing carols, you know- bugging the hell out of my fam/friends.. Nbd..

Tangent- why the f do I feel like I need a bigger house every year around Christmas?! Like can I buy every decoration known to man?? Not without more storage, beezy… (This is an internal struggle).

Anyway- HOLIDAY GIFTS!

This year I have been super duper down with online shopping.  No, I did not brave the insane crowds the day after Thanksgiving. I opted instead to shop from my iPhone, glass of wine in hand by the fire.  Sorry not sorry I’ll stay at home. For me, the deals are online and I search EVERYWHERE for them.  So in case you are not Miss (or Mister) Shop-A-Holic Online Addict (like me), I have curated some AMAZING gift guides for you this year! Over the next couple of weeks, keep checking back for info about killer sales, and my little guides to help you get this gift giving thang done!

1. Cozy Night In- For the lady who loves to pamper herself. Treat your babe to a cozy robe, adorable knee socks, sweet smelling candle, a luxe blanket and tea for one! This tea pot seriously makes me want to plan a whole weekend around it. Y tu??

2. Island Getaway- For the babe who loves to get away. Show your love that you care with a brand new figure flattering suit, boho sandals, pink shades, woven bag and ofcourse- sunscreen!! Oh, and FYI, this entire set is around $300…. Can we all say ONE STOP SHOP?! Love. As always, Swell is Free Shipping $18+, so ya…


3. Yogi Bear Staycation-
For the gal who loves her Namaste. This yoga mat is literally everything.. Combined with the perfect stretchy leggings, a funky top, the most badass gym tote ever a la Stella McCartney (dieeeeeeeeeeee, I CANNOT!!!!!!), oh- and plenty of hydration. Your yogi bear will be thanking you for ever & ever with this set!

Let me know what gift guides you want to see next!! E-mail me here or comment below!

    Good Afternoon, friends!

Hope you all had a fantastic Veteran’s Day! I kicked my day off with a little run, then spent the day shopping (duh) with a carrot juice in hand/planning all of my fun DIY projects coming up!

When this time of year rolls around I am all about cozy slippers, staying in and getting creative! Fall & Winter are about recharging your battery and getting into an awesome groove! By the way, just because it is getting dark at like 5PM doesn’t mean you have to sit on the couch the rest of the night… Get your booty in gear!  Get out for a walk with your babe (or furry babe), enjoy the cool, fresh air, and take a warm glass of chamomile tea with you OR if you’re feeling extra frisky, a little Irish Coffee (in this mug = everything)!! Sooooo relaxing (trust me).

So let’s get to the business.. Have you guys seen the new Piperlime site?!?

I’ve been a maj fan of Piperlime for years, let me tell you. Their free shipping/free returns policy is a LIFE SAVER. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve splurged on items online and got the short end of the stick when it comes to returns.. A lot of online retailers do free shipping, but not free returns, so you’re stuck paying $5-15 to ship back an item YOU DON’T EVEN WANT! What!?! Sucky, just saying. At Piperlime, it’s so easy. They even include a cute little green card inside with your packing slip already printed and ready to go- just in caseies.

Piperlime also always has bomb @$s sales.  I’m talking 15, 20, sometimes even 30-40% off sale merch and new arrivals. I. Can’t. Get. Enough.

So ya, 1/2 of my shoe collection is from Piperlime.

Ob-sessed.

So this week’s top five is all about Piperlime and all of the amazing need-now essentials you may or may not need to buy like now.

1. Pim + Larkin Adriene Vegan Leather Jacket, ON SALE!!!
I understand if you are no longer reading this post because you just had a mini heart attack and are already in your cart for this coat.. I mean really, $109 for a coat you’ll wear about 169497598759 times this fall/winter is nothing. I love the Vegan Leather sleeves with the asymmetrical sweater draped in the front for the perfect relaxed style.

2. 525 America Traveling Cable Knit Sweater, $225 Babes, don’t flip on the price.  As a girl in her 20’s, I have absolutely NO misconceptions about my peers being able to afford certain items.  Unless you’re independently wealthy/married a Doctor/wtf ever, you’re probably not buying this sweater if you’re on the youngish side.  I mean, let’s be real, we’re just starting out. However, I know plenty of babes that are young hotties that will splurge on key items, the trick is finding what pieces are worth the hit to your checkbook.  Ie: the perfect shoes, a DVF dress, a Chanel bag… Pick your poison, it’s all good to me. If you’re in to invest in a sweet, timeless sweater this one is amazing. If you’re game for something a little less expensive ($64!!), try this little Pim + Larkin cable knit, also amazing.

3. Loeffler Randall Rain Fenton, $195 I will make no apologies for adding a pair of LOEFFLER RANDALL boots on the top five. At just under $200, this is splurge-worthy to the MAX.  These are edgy, chic, and who can’t justify rain boots??

4. JOA Brushed Plaid Skirt, ON SALE!!! Ok- here’s my quick guide on navigating through sales… Have you ever been at a Nordstrom’s when their Half Yearly Sale is going on?  If you haven’t, let me just paint the picture.  Think screaming babies, pushy women, eyes glazed over, women literally bumping into you left & right, men sleeping in chairs…. AKA complete utter MAYHEM (ahem #WhyIOnlineShop ahem) Pretty much, if you’re at a big sale, look at every item critically. For me, it’s just taking that extra glance and thinking, “do I love this because it’s on sale, or do I love this because I love it?” Usually my inner voice screams one way or another, and I just get freaking brutal with it. I recommend being superrrr critical with yourself when sale shopping because let’s face it, who hasn’t ended up with some FUGLY items as a result of a good sale at least once or twice in their lives? Guilty. As. Charged. This little plaid skirt for a mere $34.97 is flirty, cute, fun and perfect for work during the cooler months.  Add black tights, black booties and a cute little blouse and you’re out the door!

5. Keepsake Hearts On Fire Dress, ON SALE!!! Guys, this adorable, must have dress is on sale right now for $84.. The bustier top, the mini silhouette, this dress is the perfect date night dress for the cooler months, just throw this show stopper Fur Twill Jacket over it and you’ll be warm throughout the night.

Hello everybody!!!

Sorry for the lack of posts the past week-ish (more like 2) weeks! As you all know very well, at times life gets a little too in the way of fun stuff like blogging! My apologies!

Halloween is a week from tomorrow. ONE WEEK!

How in the h-e-double hockey sticks did that happen?

Well, in case it has crept up on you like one of those creepy mummies in every Halloween movie you’ve ever seen, I have your party essentials covered!

BTW- Totally don’t need to actually have a party to throw a party, make sense? This year, I’m all about a small little Halloween celebration.  Think themed cocktails, scary movies, a little candy, a little snuggly time, a little dressing up my doggy and parading him around even though he doesn’t know what’s going on, type of night.

Hang with your BFF, your girl/your boy, your parents, whatever and just freaking have a ball.

1. Vintage Halloween Paper Straws

H1These cutesy straws are not only biodegradable but they are so damn adorable. I would throw a party just to use these straws, just saying.  Think a little spiked witches brew + cute vintage straws + a little spooky music. Done, done and done!

2. Black & White Swirl Pops

H2Lollipops are not just for kids this Halloween… I mean, I try to stay away from candy 99% of the time, but on Halloween, you’re allowed (encouraged, forced). ;) Try these cherry flavored pops for a cute little party accent & an end of the night treat.

3. Black M&M’s

H3There are certain things that don’t ever cross my mind.  Black M&M’s would be one of these things. Like who the f thinks to make such a thing?! People that love Halloween! That’s who. I love these to throw in a cute little skeleton bowl or a cute candy dish to add to your delicious decor!

4. Halloween Canvas

H4How adorable is this little vintage canvas with the little girl and cute cat?!? I love sweet little details for decor, without going overboard.

5. Orange Lanterns

H5I’m not sure if you know this about me, but I am always more than down for a pom pom hanging somewhere. They are so delightful and sweet, especially these orange poms for a dose of Halloween fun!
