Shopping Madness

Thursday, December 18, 2014

The internet is one giant blur of pretty things that I've seen over the last few weeks and to be honest, that blur was full of holiday sparkle. There is so much out there to love, so with that I give you this mish-mosh of pieces that have caught my attention. This completely random compilation of gifts for you or whoever in your life enjoys pretty things will calm your sparkle craving heart. I wouldn't be mad at anyone who got me one of these pieces. Enjoy!

Nordstrom legging jeans // Steve Madden Boots (old but similar here) // Old Navy flannel // Forever 21 Cardigan (love this one for just $15.80) // Rebecca Minkoff MAB tote  // NYX Butter lipstick

We are right around the time of the school year where I'm willing to do anything to make it more tolerable just so I can make it to Christmas break. I pretty much have been wearing nothing that isn't comfortable and warm to get me through to this Friday. These Old Navy flannels I picked up have been on repeat with skirts, jeans and jeggings. They offer comfort and color which is a must-have in my wardrobe.

Wish me luck. Only 3 more school days till break!!

J. Crew Factory top // J. Crew Necklace // Essie Clam Bake nail polish // Forever 21 glasses // Rebecca Minkoff MAB tote // Nine West oxford heels // Gap jean Jacket

For school picture day I like to pick something that stands out and gives an accurate representation of my style as their teacher so that when my students look back at their class picture and remember me, they think that was my fun 5th grade teacher who always wore bright fun clothes.

I think I succeeded though in representing myself and my everyday style for the class photo which can be especially challenging when all you have to work with is a frame of the neck up. I think my students will remember me well, and if not this silly orange print top will have to jog their memories.

Oh boy, has life been crazy lately! Forgive me for the lack of posting but with all the home renovations and family stuff that has come up, I've been kinda MIA. Slap this cold weather on top of that and you have even more reason for not wanting to take pictures. I promise, I'll be back in full effect soon. Just one more work week of teaching till Christmas break! Hooray! 


Kalla for the Holidays

Wednesday, December 10, 2014

Kalla was kind enough to send over this absolutely breathtaking arrangement of gigantic pink roses (known as Bea & and the Lady) that simply smelled like heaven on earth. The vase is just the cutest too.

I don't know any woman in her right mind who would love to see one of these beautiful arrangements  show up on her doorstep, so why not make her day? 

With the holidays upon us, Kalla makes the perfect gift! Check out all the beautiful holiday arrangements as well as all their signature arrangements. They would be perfect for any woman in your life or as an amazing hostess gift. Hello perfect centerpiece for that holiday get-together! 

Here is an inside look at my Kalla experience, and it was and experience to say the least!

Just so you have an idea at the grand entrance this pretty lady makes (she took up a quarter of the bed!)
