A Relaxing Sunday…

Blog Post - November 1

Hopefully you’ve remembered to “fall backwards” in other words, set your clocks and multiple devices back one hour and gotten that much-needed extra hour in bed.  I’m taking it really easy today, as I’ve set myself some important goals for the coming week.  What goals have you set for yourself this week? Above is a snapshot of how I plan to spend my day. Hopefully this post will inspire you to take a page out of my book and make this day a truly relaxing one, so that you can be totally refreshed for the week ahead.

And remember…

It’s A Wrap or is it a Poncho?

Poncho, Wrap, #poncho #wrap, Zara #zara

Browsing through the Zara website, I found this lovely go to item, and now I’m totally in love with this poncho/wrap.  I love the earthy colours; you can do a lot with this, throw it on over a pair of skinny jeans and a chunky turtle neck, add a pair of Minnetonka knee-high fringe boots, and you’re off to the races! At $49.90, the price isn’t bad either.

Available here.

Stylish Shaggy Wear…

October is really and truly here!  This morning it was 35 degrees, but thank goodness it got up to 55.  I’m more of a summer 90 degrees person myself, but I don’t mind this part of autumn, where the air is crisp and the sun is shining brightly.  October is layering month and if you’re looking for something funky to dress up those jeans and your heels, this shaggy cardigan jacket is a must have.

I bought this shaggy jacket a couple of months ago for exactly this time of year, lightweight, stylish but warm and cozy at the same time. I love it because it has a 70’s vibe to it and I love clothing from that era. I purchased this one from eBay where I buy a lot of my things, because I’m sure to find unusual and quirky items, which makes me stand out from the crowd.  I’ve had so many compliments on this jacket, I’m thinking of buying another in black!

Tradesy!

I only heard about this resale site just this morning.  Since I’ve been out of the blogging loop for a while, I’m not even sure when it came into existence, well I’m glad I know now!! What is Tradesy you ask? Tradesy makes resale fast, simple and stylish; request a shipping kit, snap a few photos, Tradesy will enhance your image to make it look stunning, name a price (or they’ll suggest one if you need help) then use the pre-addressed shipping kit to send your items to them.  Once sold, items arrive in a Net-a-Porter worthy box to their excited new owner.

Tradesy takes 9% of the proceeds, and the rest is yours.  As a buyer, there’s also a money back guarantee, if your new items aren’t up to par!  You can also buy pre-loved and new clothing and accessories from Zara to Chanel to Hermes, just type in your desired brand name and the world is your oyster.

Tradesy seems to have a pretty large inventory for you to choose from.  If you’re looking for a new way to sell that Chloe Marnie bag, that’s been sitting on your eBay site forever, and hasn’t sold, Tradesy just might be the way to move it.

Happy shopping Darlings!

Lippy Louboutin!!!

Louboutin Lipstick Gold Packaging

So…

Anyone who knows me, knows I love a red lip.  There is nothing more elegant and sexy than red lipstick.  There are so many shades of red, it can be mind-boggling, so you need to know what type of red works for you.  I myself, prefer reds with blue undertones, rather than orange, so can you imagine my excitement, when I discovered that Christian Louboutin now has a lipstick!!! Velvet matte and satin finishes at that! I have yet to see them in person, I’m just thrilled by the fact there’s a Louboutin lipstick!  The red I’ve seen online is called Diva (of course!), which is my kind of red.  There’s also a gorgeous colour called Zoulou, which is a lovely nude; I also love nude lipsticks, my second go to shades.

The colour pictured above is Eton Moi, which is a gorgeous plum/purple.  I was lucky enough to be gifted the Louboutin nail polish for my last birthday, which I’m yet to use, because it is busy being a statement piece on my bookshelf.

I’ve watched a few YouTube videos and the colours really do look amazing.  At $90 they are a splurge; do we need a $90 Louboutin lipstick? No! Do we want a $90 Louboutin lipstick??  YES!! I’m hoping I’ll get lucky again and be gifted this beautifully packaged product (hint, hint!) or maybe a couple of gift cards should do it.  Just the packaging alone is worth it.

A lot of the colours are sold out and you have to pre-order, expected delivery is early November.  I think I’ll take a trip to Saks and take a look and try for myself. Stay tuned for my review of actual product.

So my bangle arrived today! I was pleasantly surprised as I truly did not expect it until the end of next week, if that!  I commend MyHabit.com and their speedy shipping.  The bangle is absolutely GORGEOUS! It looks expensive, has a nice weight to it (I don’t like flimsy jewelry!) and will be my go to piece for a while.

As I mentioned in my post on Tuesday, the bangle was originally$78 reduced to $25, well worth it, in my opinion.  Wrap bangle is still available here.

This definitely is a lovely early birthday present to me! Let the celebrations begin!

Love, Light & Blessings!

So I’m crocheting away and watching TV at the same time, when Access Hollywood came on.  I was too lazy to change the channel so I continued to watch.  Now, this is a show I hardly ever watch, but today, I’m glad I did.  This simple and elegant Chloe & Theodora bangle was being showcased on the show and available for purchase via MyHabit.com, for the wonderful price of $25 reduced from $78! It’s 14K gold-plated brass and the stones are Cubic Zirconia. I just love a good sale!! You know I went to my computer immediately and placed my order!  Get yours, supplies are limited.
