Blotting Papers

These are my life blood. Before I leave the house, without fail, I swipe one of these babies over my skin.  Personally, I love love love these Boscia wipes.  They're made from green tea, large enough to use one over my whole face, and really work. I have found the drugstore incarnations of this miracle product, like these Hard Candy wipes, to be waxy, small, and less effective. But they cost a whole lot less for a whole lot more. 

What's your pick?

I am loving how simple Refinery 29 made it to wear blues and blues. Cobalt is such a wonderful color on everyone and you can accent it with gold or silver. I love this outfit because it's the perfect spring look- dark colors in light, breathable fabrics, paired with sturdy flats makes for the ultimate transitional weather ensemble!

New Suit

{Maidenform swimsuit- 30% off!}

After sharing my swimsuit wish list last week I picked up this beautiful swimsuit on sale at JC Penney (jcpenney? Is that how they're spelling their name now?) Anyway, this is definitely one of the most flattering bathing suits I own. The slightly padded top and fold-over bottoms enhance and cover in all of the right places. For hourglass figures, it really is perfection. AND it's on sale!

First, I've recently been dabbling in graphic design (very elementary graphic design, that is!) and I've been pleased with the results. If anyone has any recommendations for tutorials, let me know!  
Second, I am just in love with flowers of all kinds.  I suppose because of Mother's Day they've just been everywhere but all I know is that I cannot wait to decorate my new apartment with hydrangeas, peonies, ranunculus, and so many more!

Swimsuit Wish List

The weather in Florida right now is just beautiful! Perfect for the beach! I recently bought a new Ralph Lauren swimsuit on sale and I love it, but I could always use another and these are adorable.  I am especially crushing on that cornflower blue one from Topshop.  Light colors really make a good tan pop! I also love the retro cut on this one piece, also from Topshop.

Happy shopping!

{Coach bag (similar here), Dolce Vita sandals (similar here)}

Well now that it's summer (and the rain has finally stopped!) I can break out the sandals!  As a present to myself after my first day at my new internship, I popped into DSW and left with these babies.  They're so simple and comfortable, I definitely think I'll be wearing them for many sunny days this season. Also, this Coach is the bag I carry everyday. It can literally fit everything from books to umbrellas and I love it. Luckily, this season's version is on sale now for 50% off!

Summer Wish List

Downtown by Lana earrings, (on sale for $40!), Kate Spade purse, 

Right now I am loving yellow and aqua.  They're like jolts of instant happiness! Of course I'm majorly crushing on this Kate Spade Cobble Hill bag- that color is just divine.  Also, I've been in the market for espadrilles since last summer and these Luckys are the sweetest.  Finally, this morning we received J.C. Penney's new catalog and I flipped when I saw these earrings.  The gold chevron pattern is just perfect. And they're on sale!

Happy shopping!

{Liz Claiborne bag}

First of all, if you've never had Panera's chai tea latte, do it now! Easily the greatest tea in the world. Now, purse.  I've had this Liz Claiborne bag for about a year and have recently picked it again. I remember spotting it at J.C. Penney when it was $35.  I resisted the temptations of full-price.  Lucky for me, when I returned a few weeks later it was on sale for $10! 

Sometimes, it's worth the wait.
