spring looks for less

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

can you believe all these looks are from old navy? every item featured here are under $ 35 and most are on sale too. i suggest you stock up on spring/summer essentials such as tank tops and shorts and they have the cutest lightweight scarves too. i was able to score a pretty blouse over the weekend which i'm really happy with and i can't wait to wear it more in the warmer months to come!

monogram necklace

Sunday, January 29, 2012

so i finally ordered my own monogram necklace as a birthday gift for myself and i am counting the days (and weeks) till i get them. since they are made to order, it takes about 5 weeks for delivery. the agony of waiting begins.

i am sure it's worth the wait. they are absolutely darling and it was hard to choose. i opted for the yellow-goldplated large monogram from bauble bar. AND if you sign up, you immediately get a $10 discount off your first order! you can sign up HERE!

for the ladies

Thursday, January 12, 2012

i know it's kinda silly to do a gift guide since we all know a beautiful bunch of flowers and chocolates are just a few of what we really want on valentine's day. and maybe a romantic dinner out.

i simply can't help but share this quick guide to those husbands and boyfriends who want to give something extra special for their lovelies. and also for us ladies, if we just want to surprise our fab girlfriends!

how's your tuesday so far?
