The Bucket List

Bucket bags are everywhere right now and they will sure be around come spring/summer. I am using the words spring and summer loosely because with 90 inches of snow outside, its hard to imagine warmer weather. My city is actually now the most snowiest city in the country this winter which is insane.
When I was growing up, all I could remember my mom holding were bucket bags so I use to think they were old school. In college I got one from Aldo which changed my mind. I still have that bag, glad I didn't get rid of it. I also recently bought the beige one pictured above from Zara and I can't wait to start using it. Here are just a few of my favorite from across the web.

When It Comes To Gifting

Monday, February 2, 2015

Brrrr..... The brutal winter has finally kicked in here in New England. Last week, we had 3 feet of snow and it is currently snowing today, more to come on Thursday and Sunday according to the forecast. This explains why I haven't done outfit posts recently but I didn't want to leave the blog empty so I thought I would share this new gifting website.
The Holidays are probably the season where people give gifts the most. But gift giving goes beyond that. For me there are birthdays of friends and families not to mention showers and other soirees. My dad just celebrated his birthday a few weeks ago and both my sisters celebrate their birthdays this month.

My friends and family tell me its always difficult to get me gifts because they have no idea what to get me. Besides monetary gifts, I prefer unique gifts, something I won't commonly find or buy for myself. So thats exactly what I look for when gifting others.

I am always on the lookout for websites that offer unique gifts and came across Uncommon Goods recently. Uncommon Goods is a Brooklyn, New York based Company that features unique designs and hand crafted gifts. It also helps that they have good practices. They have gifts for men, women, and personalized gifts. Hint Hint for all you lovebirds looking for valentine gifts.  Click here, here, and here for more gift ideas. Above are pictures of a few things I picked up recently. I am obsessed with this fruit infused bottle, I haven't been able to put it down since I got it and the clock will go perfectly on my desk at work.

Neon and Sequin

Friday, January 23, 2015

I have had this skirt for about a year now. I really wanted to wear it over the holidays but didn't get to it.  Sequins can be worn all year round. To make it more wearable, I like pairing it with casual pieces such as a t-shirt, a sweater, or a chambray. Here I went with a bright neon sweater.

Target Does it Again

Thursday, January 15, 2015

Once upon a time, I was obsessed with Target. I'm talking making a purchase every single day. I use to joke that I have a receipt from Target for every single day of the week, and that wasn't far from the truth. Don't get me wrong, I am still obsessed with target, I mean who isn't. But lets just say the store associates don't know me by first name anymore. Target always delivers but every ones in a while you find an item that just makes you pause and say Target?!? This is exactly what happened when I say this suite.

This was one of my holiday looks. I didn't post it because I just didn't like the pictures but I thought oh well... So here you go. Better late than never.
