Lady-like Looks at Forever 21

I don't get a chance to shop at Forever 21 very often (the store kind of gives me anxiety...anyone else agree?!), but sometimes I browse their website and am surprised by what they have. Even if some of the stuff isn't the highest quality, the price is right to justify just a couple of wears. Check out these surprisingly lady-like deals:

All items available on
Happy Weekend!

A Walk Down "The Aisle"

Have you ever heard of The Aisle? It's an invitation-only site like Rue La La or Gilt, but for weddings! They have some really great sales it seems and I'm looking forward to checking it everyday to see if anything I want/need for the wedding happens to be on sale!

Right now they have a sale on Pour la Victoire shoes... I'd get these for everyday!

And another one of the sales is Lela Rose. Love this dress! So pretty!
Click here for an invitation to The Aisle! I think it would be fun to check out, even if you're not a bride!

My Sketchy Laundry Saviour AND a Coupon!

Today I am singing the praises of this great product:

The Purex 3-in-1 laundry sheets are amazing and convenient. They are particularly amazing for someone like me who has a "sketchy laundry situation." What does that mean? Well, I don't have a washer/dryer in my apartment building - which was a big downside for me since I like to do laundry often and I have an irrational fear of laundromats. Luckily, the girl who lived in my apartment before me somehow (??) had keys to the building next door which does have laundry in the basement (I didn't ask how!) and was happy to pass them on to me. I do my laundry there now, but I always feel wicked sketchy and am in and out as fast as possible - I don't want to have to explain why I'm there to people who actually live in the building! I even plan to work from home on days that I do laundry to avoid running into anybody (did I mention there is only ONE washer and ONE dryer?)
That's where the Purex comes in. I don't have to conspicuously lug bottles of detergent and fabric softener from my building to the one next door. I tuck the sheet in my laundry basket and am in and out!
Want to try it too? Purex is offering a $1 off coupon here on their website!

Pillow Perfection

I'm looking for some new pillows for my living room. I have a light beige sofa that needs some sprucing up. My walls are painted a greyish-green (hard to describe, but I love it!) and I have a turquoise and straw colored rug so I'm looking for something bright and green or blue. Here are some great pillows I've found on Etsy:

I'm not looking for pink and green, but I love this pillow cover from The Lacey Placey. Maybe for my bedroom...

I also love this blue and white version of the above from the same shop. And it comes in a set of two!

I love this ikat pillow from Carlos Santiago. Isn't it gorgeous? I'm not sure how well it would go with my living room though.

I love this pretty bow pillow cover from iviemade! Again, not sure if it would go well with my room, but it's still soo cute!

Again, in the does-not-go-in-my-living-room category, I LOVE this nautical pillow cover from Kain Kain.

And I'm even more in love with this anchor pillow, also from Kain Kain.

I think I have my heart set on this pretty pillow from joom. I think its the perfect pop of color and subtle enough to not clash with my rug.

And I think I would mix-and-match it with this:

What do you think???!!

Wedding Wednesday: Wedzu!

A little over 300 days until my wedding. EEK! Just kidding. I know it's a lot of time, but I'm still feeling the pressure just because I'm, well, me. As I've perused countless wedding sites, I've fallen in love with Wedzu. Wedzu describes itself as "all about weddings. Especially indie, handmade, awesome weddings." It has some really amazing, beautiful, unique handmade items that would add a perfect one-of-a-kind touch to a wedding.

Gorgeous frame-worthy engraved invitations. I am in love with these.

Sweet little "Just Married" luggage tags for the honeymoon. These would be a cute little engagement gift.
Mr and Mrs signs to hang on the back of the chairs at the reception.

How perfect would this snowflake ring-bearer pillow be for a winter wedding??

On the right person, this gold leaf headband would be absolutely stunning.
Delicate, yet eye-catching pearl earrings.

I think this veil is absolutely gorgeous and is the style I'll wear on my day...

What do you think? Have you checked out Wedzu before? It's definitely worth a look! There's a little bit of everything!
Happy Wednesday!!

Lilly Bonanza!!

If you're anything like me, you've spent hours scouring the internet for a certain Lilly Pulitzer item. There's always that dress or skirt that somehow seems to allude me when it is in stores (like the Originals Wallet in Flowey Wowey... anyone know where I can get one by the way?!). Or maybe you spill red wine on your favorite shirt and you desperately search on Ebay for a replacement. Or maybe you just are so obsessed that you browse Re-Lilly on Facebook and other sites just in case something you absolutely need to own comes up. Well I've found one more place to look!

Bonanza has lots of different things (it seems to be a combination of ebay and etsy... actually, you can import items that you are selling on ebay to bonanza), but it has a pretty good amount of Lilly items and some very good deals.
Click here to check it out - who knows what you might find!!

Garden Variety

I love chinoiserie decor and the price is right on this porcelain garden stool from Pearl River. I'm slowly adding more chinoiserie style items to my apartment - a bamboo style mirror, blue and white china, etc. I think a pair of these would look perfect on either side of my fireplace!

Recent Purchases and OOTD

I wanted to share some of favorite recent purchases with you... which coincidentally are my outfit of the day as well! And even better, it was all on sale! Oh how I love after-Christmas sales!

I've been wanting these Madden Girl boots from the Victoria's Secret website since I saw a them on a friend back in October. I got the tan ones and they look great with jeans! Best of all, I waited until they went on sale...40% off...then I had a $10 Angel rewards coupon... and then a $20 gift card... so all in all, I got my boots for around $20!
Next, I bought this Gap lace top thinking I might wear it on NYE, but I changed my mind. It is super cute though and can be dressed up or down. Today I'm wearing it dressed down with a white cardigan.
And lastly, I finally got my jeggings - also from the Gap. I love them and was shocked by how flattering they look! Plus, they are SUPER comfortable.

Have you made any good purchases lately?
Have a great Saturday! xoxo

Chocolate Indulgences!

The start of 2011 means a big thing to me - it's the year of my wedding! Which also means that the start of 2011 means the beginning of my wedding diet! Anyone have any helpful diet advice?? I'm the worst dieter as I go out for dinner at least twice a week, snack constantly at work, have a frightening affinity for french fries, and always say yes to the second glass of wine. It's gonna be tough for me. But I do recognize the need for small indulgences and just discovered these:

100 Calorie Chocolate bars from Dylan's Candy Bar!! They are available in a 5 pack (one for each day of the work week!) and in Almond Dark Chocolate, Caramel Milk Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, and Espresso Dark Chocolate. How cute are the brightly colored packages??

Happy Indulging!!

Lemony-Vanilla Goodness!

Has anyone tried the Lemon Vanilla body wash from Bath and Body Works? It's from their Summer Vanillas collection so obviously I'm a few seasons behind the game, but I bought it on sale a few weeks ago and love it! It smells so light and fresh and isn't overly sweet.

The body lotion is also great! I've been using both for a couple weeks now.

I was also happy to discover that it is very similar to another favorite of mine, Fresh's Sugar Lemon Body lotion. And a lot cheaper!

Interested? Hurry to your B&BW store or check out their website - the body spray and body cream are on sale for $3 each!!

P.S. Speaking of Fresh, does anyone know how long face scrub lasts? I found my beloved Fresh Brown Sugar Face Polish in my medicine cabinet and it's oh, I don't know, about 3 or 4 years old!! Should I just toss it out or could I possibly still use it??? It looks OK....

I was not compensated in any way by Bath & Body Works or Fresh!
