store it up

there are many different lovely aspects of the home i share with my loving husband and sweet pup. we have a kitchen. we have an office. we have a master bedroom. we also share a small walk in closet thats about the size of a pantry. its something i am trying to cope with on a daily basis.

so, in the midst of my growing wardrobe and jewelry collection, i am running out of places to put everything. all of my jewelry is lumped together in a linen closet at the moment which makes it very hard to see. i found this gorgeous jewelry armoire shown above (which can be found here for $540) and felt inspired. who doesn't want there closet entry way to look this chic? is it worth the $540 (i'm leaning towards yes!) or are these just as great, and cheaper?

sonya renee

in the july issue of instyle (featured cameron diaz on the front) i found a pair of really cute earrings featured by designer sonya renee. her website can be found here and they have so many great, classic looks that are sure to be in style for years to come. her prices are extremely reasonable (most items for under $100) and i love all the gold that she uses. here are some of my favorite pieces from her.

um, are those high-tops??

this picture has left me speechless, confused, and concerned. are people like the one and only olivia really sporting high-tops?! this is one fashion statement i will never partcipate in.

grab it and go

a girl can never have too many clutches. its actually a fact.

elaine turner, found here, has the most gorgeous collection of handbags including these clutches shown below. most of them come in different colors so be sure to check out her website. while some are more expensive than others, spending a little more money on something that you will carry and get a lot of use out of is something i can justify. if only aj understood....

summer clutch in navy grass cloth-$175

sierra clutch in tomato red pebble leather-$117

sierra clutch in cream croc leather-$168

bianca clutch in ring lizard leather-$168

bianca clutch in oyster basketweave-$195

found it, can't live without it

i am always looking for a new face wash to make me feel fresh and like i just got a facial...but for under $4! this new face wash out by st. ives does just that. in the past i have used other st. ives face washes but nothing this good. i immediately loved how it made my face feel from the first time i used it, until now. about 4 weeks ago i purchased it from target and could not find it anywhere else so you may want to check there first. let me know what you think!

man, she looks good

instyle has always been a favorite of mine and this july issue reinforces my love for this magazine. cameron diaz looks stunningly beautiful and i loved the article about her life right now. the 37 yr old has always been in my top 5 favorite actresses and i love her more and more as time goes on. how is she still single?!?

answer to traveling light

i was thrilled to recently discover this hidden online gem. why has it taken me so long to find this darn website?!?

aj and i have been out of town the past 5, yes 5, weekends and i have been driving myself crazy trying to find travel size everything. this genius website carries everything you need for traveling under the tsa regulations. 3 has great brands, prices, and anything you could possibly need while vacationing. since most airlines are charging for checked bags, i have been trying my hardest to pack light while still bringing key items under 3fl oz. you can search for a particular item you are interested in (i.e. masks, conditioner, eye cream) so you do not overlook any of your specific needs.

happy flying!

take a little time

this weekend i was visiting my fam in atlanta and stopped by scotts antique market for some finds for the house. along the way, i unexpectedly found some really cool jewelry. this place is huge so you have to go well fed, well rested, and in comfy shoes.

there were many vendors with really expensive jewelry like diamonds, but many vendors had costume jewelry like these shown below. i definietly had to search through many bins to find these, but it was well worth the search. i love these long, chunky necklaces and they were ultra affordable. if you are in the atlanta area, click on the link above for more details about scotts.
