I had my Real Housewives of Atlanta season premiere viewing party last weekend, and it was tons of fun per the usual. How can you not love NeNe "When I walk in a room, I own it!" Leakes, honey!? These hydrangeas are some florals I picked up from Trader Joe's to liven up the space. They're such gorgeous flowers!
I recently moved to a new place and am SUPER excited with all the space (and awesome natural light, too!) that I've acquired! My bedroom is huge, and I'm turning my bathroom into a Caribbean island oasis. See for yourself...
Bathroom is cozy with a ton of room, and I am LOVING the fact
that I never have to close my blinds due to the enormous
amount of privacy via the foliage in back.
Bonus: the shower has, like, 8 settings.
One of them feels like I'm standing under an Amazonian mist.
I sooo wasn't kidding about that island oasis part.
PS: The art came from my birthday trip to Belize earlier this year.
Perfect complement to walls that have been dipped in sunshine...

Yesterday, I discovered the Henri Bendel boutique by my house. Debauchery ensued. How did I miss this? It's been directly across from the Cole Haan I routinely visit for the past 7 months. What you see above are new bags on my hit list. APPARENTLY, someone just missed a sale, so I'm saving up for these lovelies!
Fun fact: I learned that the black bag and the blue and white striped one are in a collection called No. 7. Apparently, Henri struck up a friendship with Coco Chanel and was responsible for bringing her designs to the states. When Coco was deciding on which fragrances to debut, her concoction, No. 7, was Mr. Bendel's favorite.
I love a slim-fitting midi skirt. I find them very sexy and feminine. So you know it was on and poppin'! when I found these at asos, a retailer that I was turned on to by Vivi of Heart, Print & Style. These aren't my only three; I have other colors, as well as one in an equestrian/horse bit print. I tend to buy these in one size smaller than I actually am due to the fact that they stretch, and they end up being the perfect fit when actually worn. I learned this after buying them in my regular size a couple times. I pair them with every type of shoe (boots, pumps, open-toes; sneakers would be cute, too), and practically any top from a tee, tank, or sweater can be rocked and look chic. Very versatile styling!
Sorry for the wrinklies... these were fresh out of the packaging; hadn't even hit the runway yet. ~
I wash only in cold water and NEVER machine dry to keep them free of pills and to maintain the shape. Aaaaand you know I got these on sale. I stick them in the "save for later" section in my account and go back and peruse the website every now and then to see what's been marked down. I didn't pay more than approximately $15 each for these skirts, and shipping is always free at asos . Like Kandi, I ball on a budget, Lol! They sell similar pieces at Nordstrom for way more, and I'm sure the quality is similar/equal.
What's your favorite piece to purchase and re-purchase?!
Sephora recently had an end of year sale, and I made off like a bandit. Aaaand, I was also lucky enough to receive an additional 20% off due to my VIB status. That was exciting! It's the little things! :-) That discount was practically like getting a few of the items that I purchased for my favorite price...FREE.$99!!
Pictured above are some brushes I bought, as well as five lippies and the Philosophy Miracle Worker set, which includes full-size products (oh, btw, those are samples to the left)...WHEEEEEE!!!
