Reading, Wearing and Loving

2015-04-28_22-03-04I just finished this book and absolutely loved it! If you love fashion and a good life story, it’s the perfect mix of both!

2015-04-28_22-02-30I picked up these shoes from Zara and have nothing but rave reviews! Super comfortable and a great stacked heel!

2015-04-28_22-03-29Warby Parker is now open in New Orleans! Right on Magazine St. I recently stopped in and fell in love with the place.

Guilty Pleasures

UnknownAs I approach 30 {eeeekkkkk} I am making a conscious effort to make a few changes; and increasing my savings is one of them. I have to give myself a little credit I do a pretty good job already; but we can always improve, right?! My parents engrained in me pay now, play later. I was looking at the items I most frequently treat myself to that after a few weeks {sometimes moments} I have nothing to show for, and I know I can cut back in these areas. I’m a firm believer that you should treat yourself, but I’m pretty sure I go overboard! Time to cut back and put those dollars away!

Flowers: I love fresh flowers and as long as I am in town for longer than a week I always have a fresh bunch. Now, I buy these from the grocery so they aren’t expensive but they do add up, and after week or sometimes two if I’m lucky, into the trash can they go!

Macaroons: Anyone who knows me {or my instagram feed} you know I can’t turn down a sweet treat. From macaroons to cupcakes, I can’t resist. It doesn’t help that the best little macaroon place in New Orleans is just a few blocks away and my weekly trips {sometimes two and three times a week} should be cut back. Maybe just once a month from now on?!

Paper Goods: Swing by my desk at any given moment and I have markers, pens, notebooks and even file folders that are all brighter than your average office supplies. I can’t resist paper products from places like TJ Maxx and Home Goods; even Target has upped their game. My most recent purchase was super cute paper cocktail napkins… when will I use them… not sure…maybe not even this year; but the design is oh SO cute! Oh and cute cupcake liners too! I definitely need to curb this habit and only buy things I will use in the near future.

Candles: It’s official, this list makes me a total girly, girl! I LOVE a good candle! And find myself having 3 or 4 lit at one time {the bedroom, the entry way, the living room etc.} a little overkill I think, but I love the ambiance it sends off. $20 for a good candle seems reasonable to me, but that adds up.. and fast!

Packing Tips: I am always looking for new ways to save room in my suitcase and these tips from Who What Wear are great!

Spring Flowers: With Easter this weekend, there’s no better time to learn a few tricks.

The Updated T: I picked up one of these t-shirts at the J.Crew Factory store and loved it so much I ordered it in three more colors. It’s a slight update on your usual T with slits on each side. Perfect for the summer and right now it’s 50% off!

Hot Pink Ottoman: I fell in love with this little ottoman at Target, it works perfect for a vanity stool as well!

Oak Alley

As I have gotten older my appreciation for the city and state I come from has grown. I’ll be 30 soon and it still amazes me how many things I want to do in and around New Orleans and the gulf south that I haven’t done yet. A few weeks back on a beautiful Sunday afternoon my boyfriend and I took a drive to Oak Alley Plantation. It’s still so crazy to me that as a born New Orleanian, I had never made the trip, it’s just up the road after all! The grounds are just beautiful and the history is interesting as well! Looking for an afternoon away from the city, I highly reccomend a quick drive up to Oak Alley!
