5 Things on My Wish List

  1. Candles. I don’t know why, but I’ve been wanting to just light 26 candles at once while I sit down at the computer to work. Especially this scent which is one of my favorites!
  2. New makeup. I realize I’m cheating here because I’m going to include to this and this…Oooo! and THIS under this broad category, but lately I’ve just been craving new products to play with!
  3. A David Yurman ring, especially this one
  4. The Louis Vuitton key holder with the pretty baby pink interior. I’m always forgetting keys/misplacing them somewhere, ask anyone who knows me and they will validate this fact, but who could forget their keys if they were inside that!? NOT ME!
  5. A pineapple tumbler. You GUYS! OhmyGOODNESS! How perfect is this for sipping a cold drink by the pool? TOO PERFECT!

5 Blogs You MUST Follow

  1. A Girl, Obsessed; Mandy posts consistently and on a variety of topics. From blogging tips to beauty round ups, her blog is sure to keep you entertained every day of the week! (Oh, and her lists of blog post ideas are super clutch when writer’s block starts to creep up!)
  2. Advice from a 20 Something; I recently discovered this blog, and by recently I mean within the past 2 weeks, and I swear I’ve already binge read 3/4 of her posts. Her images are to die for, and her content, especially the Blogging 101 series, is so super helpful and unique!
  3. Gal Meets Glam; Ummm, where do I start? Can I just be you, Julia Engel!? Yeah, that was probably a really forward place to start, but oh my goodness! Julia’s style is feminine and chic, while still be wearable, and her travel diaries make me want to leave home and never come back.
  4. Covering the Bases; Krista of Covering the Bases has a classic, American girl style that totally suits her NYC lifestyle. I love checking out what she’s wearing, the places she’s traveling, and her tips on blogging better.
  5. Suburban Faux Pas; Krystin shares posts that highlight her amazing fashion sense which is sort of business casual meets a fun girl’s night out!
