Gilded Golden Thanksgiving Decor Wishlist

The only thing better than a little bit of sparkle and shine this time of year is a lot of sparkle and shine. With Thanksgiving a scant week away, there is still a bit of time to pick up something special for your table. This year I am finding myself very inspired by items with a lovely warm golden tone. Here are some of my favorites.

  1. Gold Antler Place Card HolderPottery Barn
  2. Hurricane Glass Candle HolderCrate & Barrel
  3. Gold Magnolia GarlandCrate & Barrel
  4. Dorota Highball GlassesAnthropologie
  5. Herb Garden Napkin RingsTerrain
  6. Mimira Dinner PlatesAnthropologie
  7. Gold Twig FlatwareWorld Market
  8. Brass & Glass Globe CenterpieceWest Elm
  9. Oak Branch Candle HolderH&M

The other thing I like about these pieces is that they aren’t holiday specific – they’re all things that can be utilized throughout the year. I’m generally willing to spend a bit more on something if I feel like I can get plenty of use out of it.


Witchy Wishlist

You can’t tame the spirit of someone who has magic in their veins

I have forever had a fascination with witches and not the green wart-nosed variety. The mysterious empowered women who live by their own code and care not for the whims of society. When I was younger I consumed book about these women by the dozen, not really believing, but secretly hoping that I would discover some latent magically ability, but alas the only thing I have been able achieve is a bit of kitchen witchery with my bakes and DIYs. Unsurprisingly, witch-y wear is something I found myself drawn to year round, but I must admit the siren call of mystically and magically inspired items is especially strong this time of year. Like last year, I have assembled a wishlist of some of the items I am finding especially haunting.

  1. Red Burnout Velvet Chiffon Kimono Torrid
  2. Practical Magic Black SoapThe Alabama Pecan Co
  3. Black Orchid PolishILNP
  4. Blaze Open Toe BootieKurt Keiger
  5. Raw Garnet Cuff BraceletThe House of Minerals

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.
