Fringe Sweater Vest & Weekend Scenes

Tunic/Vest /Jeans  / Boots/ Bag 

Hi Everyone!

I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend! We got lucky again this weekend with some nice weather so we took advantage of it. We took some pictures for our holiday card but I won’t reveal which picture we chose everyone will just have to wait until they receive their card. 🙂 We also walked around the Lincoln Park Conservatory, and if you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that we went to Zoolights at the Lincoln Park Zoo.  Zoolights is one my favorite events to go to during the holiday season.

 My husband was kind enough to be my photographer again. I don’t want to post photos with him in them too often, but I had to include one of us. That view of the city is also one of my favorites. 🙂 The vest is an oldie yet goodie that I bought when I worked at Evereve. I especially like to wear it during the holiday season because of the colors. It also looks great with my Lush tunic and my favorite pair of legging jeans. 🙂  All of the details are linked above, but feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions.  I am also linking up with Biana today.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope that you have a great day! 🙂

Hi Everyone!

I hope that you all have had a great week. I am linking up with Amanda today and sharing my latest favorites.

Ruffle Top  –   This top is really cute. I like the idea that it can be dressed up or down.

Leopard Booties – Sadly these leopard booties are sold out in my size, but they are pretty and would look really good with the ruffle top above.

Bag  –  This bag is both beautiful and dreamy.

Meatball Recipe – I made meatballs last week and then I came across this recipe. Because I love meatballs, I am definitely trying this recipe.

Quote –  This was just funny and I wanted to share it. 🙂

My Stress Reliever Essentials

Hi Everyone!

Thank you all so much for your feedback on the new blog name! It really means a lot to me. 🙂

I wanted to switch things up today and share some of the things that help me relieve stress. In addition to working out on a daily basis, these things help me a lot. Another thing that I started doing a few months ago that is not pictured here is listening to relaxing music. When we were in Las Vegas over the summer the hotel that we stayed at had Zen music playing everywhere and I loved it. I found this station on Pandora and I really try to take a few minutes each day to listen to it.

Alright, let’s move on! 🙂

  1. Soft Blanket – My in-laws gave me a pink soft blanket last year for Christmas and it is the softest thing ever.  I could not find the exact one that I have, but the one that I linked is similar.
  2. Cozy  Socks – You all know how much I love cozy socks! 🙂 I bought this cute striped pair at Old Navy. They have the best collection of cozy socks for a great price.
  3. Aromatherapy Sleep/Relaxation Pillow –   I have used this a few times and it is great. This one is filled with lavender and smells wonderful. You can heat it up if you want something warm, or put it into the freezer for a bit to use as a cold compress. It works really well if you are not feeling well and want to relieve any pain, or if you just want to relax.
  4. Sleepytime Echinacea Complete Care Tea – I drink a cup of this herbal tea every night after dinner. It is perfect for when you want to unwind and it is delicious.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope that you all have a great day! ❤

New Blog Name and Friday Favorites

Hi Everyone!

I hope that you all had a great week. If  you have not noticed, I decided to change the name of this blog. I decided to change it to a name that is more of a reflection of who I am. What do you all think? Feel free to let me know in the comments below and be on the look out for my new Instagram handle! 🙂

OK, moving on! I am linking up with Amanda today and sharing my latest favorites.

 

Unicorn Socks – How cute and funny are these socks?! I may need to add them to my collection too.

Scalloped Sweater – The detailing on these sweater is so cute. It comes in a few other colors but I liked the ivory color the best.

Louis Vuitton St. Michel in Coquelicot   – Just another beautiful bag that I found and added to my wish list. It also comes in a few other colors.

Sorel Tofino Boot – I really do not want to think about winter, but I do really need a new pair of winter boots. I have added this pair to my winter survival list. They are both cute and practical which is what I am going for.

Squash Recipes – Recipes that look delicious and will keep you warm? Sounds good to me!

Thank you all so much for stopping by and I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend!

  1. This recipe. This looks delicious and I think that I will give it a try!
  2. Bag. Just another pretty bag that I’ve added to my wish list. I also love the color!
  3. Heels. How pretty are these shoes?! I love them!!
  4. Top. I have been struggling with this bell-sleeve trend. Every single top that I’ve tried on just does not look right on me. I saw this one though and may give it a try. Plus it is on sale. 🙂
  5. Leopard Mug.  I thought that this was really cute and I love a fun coffee mug.

Thank you all so much for stopping by and I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!

Booties  in Taupe /Lipstick in Achiever/ Necklace/Bag/Quote 

  1. Booties – I really like the color and the block heel. 2. Lipstick-  I first received a sample of this lipstick but decided to buy a full size once my sample ran out. I love it. This color is described as a deep mauve, but when I put it on it was more brownish/nude. Peacemaker is the sample color that I had is Peacemaker. I really like the staying power of this lipstick and that it is hydrating. 3. Necklace – I had an arrow necklace that sadly broke. 😦 I saw this one and thought that it was even cuter because you can have your name on it. 4. Bag- SO gorgeous!!  I don’t need a bag right now but this one has been added to my wish list. 5. Quote – Just something to remember whenever something not-so-good happens in your life.

Thank you all so much for stopping by and I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend! ❤
