Tiny Bit of Sparkle

It's been a while!  I thought I'd share a little bling with you all that I've been coveting from J. Crew.

This really is a classic but eclectic piece that you can dress up or down.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

On that note, have a great weekend!

Hints of Turquoise Continued

You all know how much I love little hints of turquoise... I really need to figure out what turquoise I'll be working into our household.  Here's a few of my images that have caught my eye lately...

Have you heard about this site 20x200?  AMAZING!  My brother actually introduced me to it over Christmas because he gave us this awesome print from them.

Basically, they introduce at least two new editions a week: one photo and one work on paper.  Most are available in three or four sizes. When they first started, the smallest size was reprinted in the largest batch — an edition of 200 — and sold at the lowest price — $20. Hence the name 20x200.  They sell other sizes and even the original artwork at other prices but they have some awesome pieces for only $20!

Here's a few of my favorites:
There are so many other amazing prints, you definitely need to take a look and support this incredible project!

It's In the Bag

Hi there loves!  Wow--it has been way too long.  I admit it.  I've been a very bad blogger.  I was on such a roll until I took my new job and it's just been a lot to get adjusted.  I'm really going to try very hard to start blogging again regularly and I'm so glad Ashley from A Hasty Life's It's In the Bag blog crawl is my first post of 2011!

Yesterday, Dana from The Sear Fam showed you her fabulous bag and now it's time for mine.

I actually just made a huge change my long time favorite, Marc Jacobs bag because my sweet, sweet, husband surprised me with my dream bag for Christmas, a Balenciaga City bag.  Yes my friends, he is that good.

This really is the perfect bag and will be with me for the rest of my life.  It is like my second child (first being Teddy, my wheaten terrier).

Now onto the contents..

I'm not really great with Photoshop or any of those other tools so we'll just kind of work out way through without numbers.  Now I can see why you might think I'm a bit bougy from the looks of things but I'm one of those girls that doesn't invest a whole lot in clothes but really like my handbags and wallets.  It's my only vice :)

-Forever 21 owl zip up: I've actually had this for a few years and I absolutely love it.  It holds my lotion, antibacterial, and numerous lip options.  My favorites are my Nivea hand cream, Rosebud Salve, Sugar Plum Lip Stain, and Mac Venetian Red lip glass.

-Tory Burch Aviators: I'm a bit of a sunglass feign as well.. these were actually another Christmas present from my dear husband

-Ray Ban Wayfers: these are staple in my wardrobe and I've been sportin these for the past 3 years.  Classic.

-Cough Drops: I'm addicted.

-iPod: love to have my music with me in the car and wherever I am!

-LV Sarah Wallet: this was my wedding gift, again from my husband (I will use this the rest of my life--I told him it was an investment)

-Keys: gotta have those!

Ashley, thank you so much for organizing this blog crawl!  It's been a lot of fun to share my bag and get myself back into the blogging spirit!

Be sure to check out Debby's bag at Inspired Decorating tomorrow! :)
