Kate Spade Sale Wish List

I have a weakness for Kate Spade. They have a sale going on right now and I want to buy everything. There are so many cute things for a steal, plus free shipping! I love all the colors and fun designs! But I have to control myself, so instead of filling my online shopping bag, I made a wish list of a few of the things I want from their sale.

Lilly Agendas are Here!

This season’s Lilly Pulitzer agendas were released yesterday! I don’t know about you, but I love writing down everything I need to do and crossing things off as I accomplish them. Lilly Pulitzer makes my favorite planners ever- they come in great sizes (I always get a large), there is plenty of space to write everything you need, they keep you super organized, and they are super cute!

I just ordered mine in the Wild Confetti print. I can’t wait to get it in and start planning my year!

Watch Out for Kate Spade

A watch is the perfect accessory for almost any outfit. They go with anything and can really tie an outfit together. I was helping my friend shop for a good watch as a graduation gift, and automatically I went to the Kate Spade website. I know, most people think of Michael Kors when they hear watches, but I got a Kate Spade from Christmas last year and fell in love.

I love each of these watches because they all have something special that makes them unique. The Grand Multifunction Large Reversible Metro has a fun orange side when you want your watch to pop, but is reversible and has a tan side when you need to tone it down. I own the Gramercy Grand, a simple yet elegant gold watch with a tiny touch of pink on the face. I love it because it goes with any outfit. If you want a little bit of bling, the Seaport Grand has a subtle yet glamorous ring of crystals around the face to add the perfect touch of flash. The tortoise Gramercy is one of my favorites, perfectly combining this adorable trend with a timeless watch (no pun intended). The Gold Bracelet Gramercy with Bud Green Enamel Cutout adds the perfect pop of color to a great watch. And finally, you can never go wrong with scallops and the Rose Gold Scallop Metro is a perfect example of just that. So, which watch is your favorite?

 

Buns & Braids

I have long, brown hair that is naturally wavy/curly. But I don’t mean a pretty beach wave, I mean it always looks like I just woke up wave. This, combined with the fact that I’m extremely lazy in the mornings, leads me to pulling my hair back in some sort of braid 5 out of 7 days of the week. My go-to hair styles are top not buns and french braids, but here are a few other cute pictures of buns and braids that I love that I found off Pinterest!

Things I Love: Scallops!

Currently, my favorite fashion trend is scallops. I think they are a perfect combination of classy and fun! They add interest to any piece while staying subtle enough to go with any outfit. Plus, you can find anything from dresses to accessories with scallops. So I rounded up a few of my favorite scalloped pieces for y’all. I think I love those heels the most, I mean they are to die for.

Do you own anything scalloped? Which piece is your favorite? Let me know!

p.s. The J. Crew dress is on sale right now, so get it ASAP!

Pamper Yourself

During this time of the year, stress is at an all time high. As the school year comes to a close, last minute tests, essays, deadlines, and exams pile up until you feel like you’re drowning in a sea of to-do lists and unfinished business. Now that my days are filled with freak-outs and cram sessions, I realize I need to take an afternoon off and spend some quality relaxation time in a homemade spa.

First, maximize relaxation in a calming bubble bath. Gather all of your favorite candles and light them all around the bathtub. Next fill your bath with bubbles and any other soaks you desire (I’ve been using this stress relieving bubble bath from Bath & Body Works). Put on a relaxing playlist (may I suggest some John Mayer or Penny & Sparrow) and pull out your favorite book (currently reading: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn) and take your time soaking in the suds.afterlight

But the pampering doesn’t stop when the bath is over. Make yourself feel as beautiful as you truly are by treating yourself to am at home mani-pedi and facial. Spay yourself with your favorite body mist and get to it! Paint your nails your favorite color (may I suggest Bikini So Teeny by Essie) and grab a super cheap and easy DIY face mask form Target like these Masque Bar facials and relax as you enjoy an at home spa in the midst of the end of the year craziness.

Even if your aren’t crazy stressed like I am (lucky you) take some time out of your week to treat yourself to a little pampering. Trust me, you deserve it. And tell me what you to to pamper yourself in the comments!
