Halloween Wish List

“Boys and girls of every age, wouldn’t you like to see something strange. Come with us and you will see, this our town of Halloween…”

I seem to have caught the Halloween bug this year. In years past I haven’t had much of an interest, but this year, this year things are different. As the Halloween decor has started trickling into the stores, I’ve found myself looking a little longer and pausing as I walk past. I have it in my mind to purchase a few things for my office cube, and here are some of the things I think would look great.

  1. Go to Extremities Jewelry StandModcloth
  2. Jeweled SpidersPier 1
  3. Bewitching Bejeweled SkullPier 1
  4. Iridescent Skull Mug SetWorld Market
  5. Avian Footed TrayAnthropologie
  6. Glass Pumpkin ClochePottery Barn
  7. DIY Halloween WreathModcloth
  8. Ouija BoardBlvckfly
  9. Skeleton GlassPottery Barn

So far my only purchases have been from the Target Dollar Spot, but I have plans. Andy just rolls his eyes and tells me to keep things reasonable 🙂


Summer Wishlist

While some of you might be starting to look towards Fall, Summer is still alive and well here in the Sunshine State. We’ve got quite a lot of warm sunny days left to our year, and I am still feeling the summer vibes. Keeping that in mind, I’ve created a wishlist of items that I’d like to help me finish out the warmer weather.

  1. Lace Trapeze DressFree People
  2. Rose Gold BackpackCity Chic
  3. Elizabeth Climber EarringUrban Outfitters
  4. Pineapple SippersAmazon
  5. Matilda Floral KimonoAnthropologie
  6. Kake FlatsKurt Geiger
  7. Haberkorn SunglassesAldo
  8. Picnic BlanketH&M
  9. Floral High-Waist BikiniTorrid

I’ve been wearing a lot of loose breezy dresses to stay cool and billowy kimonos to keep the sun off my shoulders, and to be honest, I am always looking to expand my collection. After a recent trip to the beach, I’ve realized I really need to get a new swim suit. I want something that is me, but also a teeny tiny bit outside of my comfort zone, so I think a high-waist bikini might be a step in the right direction. Oh, and I thought those pineapple sippers were hella cute, and really, I just want them, summer seems a good a reason as any, right?


Summer Sunnies Under $20

In an effort to honor the sanctity of the Summer Bucket list, I decided to kick things off by shopping for sunglasses. I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for; I wanted sunnies with that little extra something special. It is summer after all. Like I thought, the internet came through like a champ and I found all sorts of wonderful over the top options. The price tag however… I’m just looking for something fun, not a lifelong style commitment. Fortunately, there is this wonderful thing called Amazon, and it was more than happy to hook me up with plenty of options, all of which were under $20. Here are my top contenders.

  1. Pastel Strip Oversized Sunnies
  2. Blue Jeweled Cat Eye Sunglasses
  3. Sparkling Geometric Rose Fade Sunglasses
  4. Gold Accented Sunnies
  5. Jeweled Leopard Cat Eye Sunglasses
  6. Royal Pink Star Spangled Sunnies
  7. Pearl & Rhinestone Oversized Sunglasses
  8. Two Tone Baroque Swirl Sunglasses
  9. Engraved Floral & Gold Leaf Sunnies

What do you think? I am finding myself having a hard time deciding which to get, and I would honestly be grateful for opinions and recommendations at this point.


Floral Wishlist

The weather just keeps getting warmer here in sunny Florida, and as the sun shines brighter and the thermostat climbs, I am finding myself wanting to forsake my signature black attire and don something lighter in both feel and in color. The resurgence of 90’s florals has hit me with a big dose of nostalgia, and I find myself lingering over this or that, thinking about the thing I had way back when that looked so very much like it. So many items in fact, I decided to put together a little wishlist and share it with you guys.

  1. Floral Twist Bikini Top & BottomTorrid
  2. Sleeveless Angled Hemmed Midi DressSoma
  3. Bekah Slip DressFashion to Figure
  4. Floral Bouquet LeggingsLoralette
  5. Floral Ear Cuff – Chelsea’s Flowercrowns
  6. Floral Hi-Low TopForever21
  7. Deva Double Flower Drop EarringsFrancesca’s
  8. Macinee Flip FlopsNine West
  9. Floral SunglassesAmazon

Obviously, I just can’t help myself, and there is a little bit of black in this featured group, but much much less than usual.  When I saw that floral ear cuff in the middle? I almost died, it’s so gorgeous and the perfect option for days when a traditional full flower crown might be a bit oppressive. I find myself quite torn between simply purchasing it or attempting to DIY one for myself so I can have exactly what I want. The safe bet would be to just do both though, right? 😉


Bath Wishlist

One of the things I said I wanted to focus on this year was self care. I’ve been doing a few things to take better care of myself and make my life a little easier. One of the more indulgent things I’ve been doing is taking a nice tub soak at the end of a particularly long day. It started out with the tub and whatever soap I could squirt under the faucet to make bubbles, but as I’ve made this a bigger part of my routine I’ve started adding different things to make the experience a little more luxurious. Below I have curated some items that I would love to keep on hand for the perfect evening bubble bath.

  1. FizzbangerLush
  2. Teak Bath CaddyBed Bath & Beyond
  3. Verbena Shower GelL’Occitane
  4. ThresholdTarget
  5. Botanica Trinket DishAnthropologie
  6. Volcano CandleCapri Blue
  7. Imperial Purple RobeSoma
  8. Volition Wine GlassModCloth
  9. Evolution Salt Massage StoneUrban Outfitters

As you can see, there are a few items in there that aren’t for the bath exactly. A gold catch-all for the jewelry I am always forgetting to take off, glasses for a beverage to enjoy during the soak, and a pink salt sphere to use on any tension the soak didn’t alleviate.  Little touches to make things my version of “perfect”. What do you need for your perfect soak?
