what i want..

for christmas is endless amounts of lululemon yoga wear! i recently caved and bought my first pair of lululemon yoga pants and they have totally changed my life. i want to workout in them. i want to sleep in them. hell, i am even trying to figure out how i can wear them to work sometimes. they are so fabulous and despite the hefty price tag that comes attached, they are perfect. the stretch and elasticity make them so unbelievably comfortably, you will not want to take them off!

im soo behind

as you can see by my lack of posts in the past few weeks, things have been crazy in the simonetta household. but, things are finally starting to slow down and i really need to start thinking about doing some christmas shopping. i feel so far behind the rest of america and all the christmas music and decor up everywhere is giving me anxiety. so, over the next few weeks stay tuned for some gift ideas. ok, thats all for now. its 7:30 and the hubs, remington, and i are off to bed!

feeling thankful!

the hubby, remington and i leave tomorrow for some much needed r & r for the next 6 days. thank goodness. after months of traveling weekend after weekend, i can not wait to be with my family and do nothing but give aj love, and remington lots of kisses. so, i will try and update sparrow branch but may not have enough energy to turn on my computer due to being in a food coma the majority of our vacation. that is the hope at least!

happy thanksgiving everyone!!

love these

black flats. a touch of gold. love them! found here.

it's gonna be h.u.g.e.

i can not believe it has taken me so long to post something about the recent announcement of miss kate middleton and prince william. o.m.g. the wedding is going to be out of this world!! i absolutely loved the navy dress she chose for their engagement announcement as she always looks so chic and flawless. and her engagement ring...its perfect. i simply can not wait for their wedding!

recent find

for those of you who have been following my blog for a while, you know how much i love bobbi brown makeup. their lotions, creams, toners, eye shadows, bronzers, basically everything. except, for their lip gloss. i have been an avid supporter of chanels lip gloss for years instead due to its tacky free finish. however, chanel lip gloss color does not stay put for very long.

well, a few weeks ago i got my makeup done at bobbi brown and they used this rich color gloss on me. i was instantly sold! this particular gloss is tacky free, has long lasting color, and there are great shades to chose from. plus, it is only $20 instead of chanels $35. done and done!

pleasantly surprised

ever since my graduation from high school, i can probably count on one hand how many times i have shopped in american eagle outfitters. their clothing is very youthful and i felt like i had grown out of their style. well, after recently seeing some of their pieces featured on my fav blogs and doing a little more investigating, i was pleasantly surprised with what i saw. although collectively i am still not loving their entire collection(it still is very youthful, they have some great items! here is what i found and everything is super affordable.
