My Christmas Wishlist

I’ve never done any kind of gift guides or wishlist posts, so I thought it would be fun to share some ideas with you today! Here is what I am asking for from my family for Christmas.

So, yeah, books. Any time anyone asks me what I want, I usually tell them book titles. These are the top ones on my list – all thrillers.

I Am Watching You – Teresa Driscoll

The Silent Patient – Alex Michaelides

The Housekeeper – Natalie Barelli

All of these are on Goodreads best thriller lists, so I know I’ll like them!

Next up, some fashion items.

I always like to get some new jammies for Christmas and these from Target are so cute and I love the thermal material.

These are some faux leather leggings on Amazon with amazing reviews! I love how they aren’t shiny, but different from regular leggings. You can dress them up or down.

I asked my sister for this; the Bedhead Waver. I’ve been wanting this for awhile, I love wavy hair, and this promises pretty beach waves and looks so easy to use.

A couple of beauty things; this Michael Kors Eau de Parfum smells so good, I love floral scents so I really like this. I love the bottle too.

Lastly, Revitalash. I have been using this for the past couple of months, and it has DRAMATICALLY changed my lashes. They are huge and full and thick. I’m asking for the big tube. It’s very pricey, but worth it!

That’s my wishlist! What are you asking for?!

What’s In My Bag? | Vintage LV Mini Looping Bag

I love to read “What’s In My Bag” posts. Maybe I am nosy, but I find it so interesting to see what other people carry around in their bags. Today I am showing you what is in mine!

I am currently using my VINTAGE Louis Vuitton Mini Looping Bag in the monogram canvas. This bag was given to me by my husband about 12 years ago for our anniversary. It was actually my second LV bag that he got me, the first being the Speedy 25 in the Damier Azur canvas. I have a What’s In My Speedy post if you want to check it out HERE.

So, I looked online, and any bag over 10 years old is considered vintage. So some of my bags are vintage now because I got a lot of them in my 20’s! I’m old.

Anyway, back to the bag. This is one of my favorite designer bags that I own. It is the perfect size, and I love how it just has the one strap. This bag was discontinued, but you may be able to find it pre-owned.

So here’s what I keep in it!

LV Mon Monogram Card Case – I got this for my birthday last year, and it took 3 months to get to me! They make these to order, and I was so happy with how it came out. I keep all of my cards in here, and it’s the perfect size.

Gucci Key Holder – I have this to hold my keys so that they don’t scratch the inside of the bag, and I love the pink interior. I don’t see this on the website anymore, so I linked what they have.

Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme in Pink Punch – review on this amazing gloss coming up on FRIDAY!!!

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Rose – the OG.

Invisibobble Hair Ties – having two girls with long hair, they always need a hair tie!

Replica Flower Market Fragrance – my current fave floral scent!

My favorite black aviator sunglasses (similar ones here)

Honest Hand Sanitizer Spray – I love this stuff, I have the lavender scent.

One Protein Bar in Peanut Butter Pie (in case I get hangry) – these are SO GOOD. I buy them by the case.

So, that is it, that’s everything! I don’t like to carry around a lot; just what I need.

DIY Personalized Beaded Bracelets

Hello! I absolutely love personalized jewelry. Anything with a monogram or a name I just have to have!!! Recently, I have spotted a trend of beaded bracelets that you can have personalized with a name. I have seen these on Etsy, Baublebar, even really expensive ones on NET-A-PORTER.

These range from $10- $85!

I thought, I can totally make these myself. AND, my girls will love to help me!

All you need are some beads and some string. We found ours from Michaels and Amazon.

These were all fairly inexpensive, and they come with a ton- you can make bracelets for everyone!

The girls and I had so much fun making them, and I love how cute they are.

Top 5 | Accessories From AMAZON

You guys must like shopping on Amazon. I get great feedback from my Amazon posts, so I decided to share more things from the popular retailer! This post is not sponsored (I wish!).

I don’t really like buying clothes from Amazon. I prefer to shop in person (shopping is my cardio) because I always have to try things on and I don’t like having to send things back. With that being said, I DO like to buy accessories on Amazon. Sometimes when you go to Nordstrom or a big store like that, you find a trendy piece that you love, but it’s way overpriced. Amazon has amazing things that can give you the same type of look!

So here are my faves!

1. Acrylic Earrings

These type of earrings are really trendy right now, so I have three pairs that I found on Amazon for super cheap. I love to wear statement earrings, but I don’t want to spend a ton of money on them. These all come in a bunch of different colors!

Pearl and gold pair here. Under $10!

Multicolor ones here. Under $10!

Tortoise hoops here.

2. Invisibobble Hair Ties

These are the only hair ties I use anymore. They come in lots of pretty colors, they really hold up my ponytail (and I have super thick hair), and they don’t leave a crease in my hair when I take it down. Love these!

Get them here.

3. No-Show Socks

Do socks count as an accessory? I just had to mention my favorite socks to wear. I wear these with almost all of my shoes, and they are so comfy and they don’t show. They also have grippers on the heel so they never slide off my foot. I get the pack with gray, black, and white.

Get them here.

4. Black Aviator Sunglasses

I have some designer sunglasses that I love, but I like to have a lot of options, so sometimes I buy some fun ones on Amazon. My favorite pair are these black aviators. They are oversized and I think they look really cool. They definitely cover my dark circle eyes at school drop off in the morning!

Couldn’t find exact ones, but similar here.

5. Hair Clips

These statement hair clips are really in style right now, and they were really hard to find in stores a few months back. I love how Amazon has huge packs of them with all different colors and sizes, and they are so much cheaper than in store! You don’t have to pay a lot to try out this trendy look.

Pearl ones here.

Multi/tortoise ones here.

Gold ones here.

Affordable Fall Fashion | 4 Outfit Ideas

Hello friends! Fall is officially upon us even if the 90 degree temps here in Texas don’t feel like it!

I wanted to write a little post to give you some fashion inspo (even if you’re still living in shorts and tank tops like me)! Most of the clothes are from Target or TJ Maxx, just because I LOVE all of the new collections at Target, and I also always find really cute things at TJ Maxx.

*I have linked the items that I was able to find, and linked similar items to the ones I was not. Enjoy!

Outfit 1

This is the kind of outfit I’m wearing now – minus the huge grandpa cardigan! I paired some distressed denim jean shorts with a little black chiffon cami and then threw this big oversized cardigan on. This cardigan is so cozy and soft, and I love the color. I put on some brown ankle boots, square shaped hoop earrings, and a long necklace with it. Super comfy and casual.

Shorts (0) – Nordstrom Similar)

Square Hoops – Etsy similar)

Necklace- Target similar)

Outfit 2

For this outfit, I paired these blush colored high waisted jeans with this little floral wrap top together. I thought this would be so cute for a date night or a dressier event. The top has little ruffles on the sleeves and the waist, making it so flattering. I put some tan colored wedge booties with this and rolled up the distressed hem a little bit. I like to show a little bit of skin there. I added some big hoop earrings and I think it came out super cute.

Outfit 3

Let’s face it, this is what I usually wear. Haha. I loved this color blocked sweatshirt because it is a little bit cropped and it felt so cozy. I paired it with some black jeans, hoops (of course) and my trusty espadrilles.

Outfit 4

This is the dressiest outfit, and I thought since it had 3/4 sleeves, it was for fall. Haha. This romper has ruffled sleeves and hems at the bottom, and it has a pretty wrapped detail to the side. I put it with some tall heeled booties that have the slightest peep toe. I added some gold earrings and I think it looks pretty cute. Who doesn’t love polka dots?

I hope you guys liked these outfits! Let me know which one was your favorite.
