Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving - a day late!

I guess it's better later than never right? 

I had such an amazing day yesterday, I just love days off spent with your families. 
I had two dinners to attend yesterday, my family's and my fiance's family. 

Did I pig out? You bet!

Feeling a little like this today.. not a good feeling when you're trying on clothes. Haha. 

I just want to wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving. I know I'm a little late, but I needed to say that. 
I also need to say that I'm thankful for you. For you coming to visit this little blog of mine and taking the time to read and comment. If it wasn't for you guys, I still wouldn't be doing this 4+ years later. It means the world to me to be able to share things and possibly help if I can. 
This blog just started out as a outlet and it turned into so much more. :)

Thank you.

Wedding Wednesday: I love you more than cupcakes

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

As you may or may not know I love cupcakes. 
It should be no surprise that I am going with a cupcake cake for the wedding. 
We still have not decided on who will be doing them but I know I want a two tier cake on top and cupcakes cascading down. 

Something like this, maybe a little less fancy and less flowers. Ok, maybe not like this at all. Haha. But this is the basic idea of how I want the cake.

I also have been on the hunt for a sign I found a Pinterest - "I love you more than cupcakes"
When we went to Pittsburgh, there was a little shop on the Strip District that carried all kind of things and low and behold they had my sign. It's going to be a sign I'll place on the cake table. 

I don't like the rustic look to it though, so I'm going to buy some black paint and clean it up a bit. :)

Have a great Wednesday night!
I'm looking forward to some delicious turkey and stuffing tomorrow.

Happy Tuesday! 

Currently blogging from my phone because I haven't set up my laptop at home. Which, by the way, I safely made it home! Thankfully I did before all this snow hits us. 

Anyway, just a quick post that I finally got my order in from Sephora I ordered last week. And guess what? I'm officially VIB!

Quick question. I haven't received the VIB card just coupons, does Sephora give a VIB card instead of just the black Beauty Insider card? For whatever reason, I thought they did. 

Later I will post a haul. For now I'm just sharing a picture from my phone. 

Have a good night, I'm exhausted. I put in a 12 hour day.

Weekend Recap: Outfit, Blanket Scarf, DIY Christmas Cards, Gingerbread Houses

Happy Monday!

Happy super short week of work! 
Tomorrow's my last day of work before the holiday. :)

This past weekend was very eventful for me and I didn't even expect it to be.
I wanted to do a lot of cleaning this weekend because I knew we weren't going to be home for a while. Plus I'm "back logged" with taking pictures for my blog because there's no sunlight by the time I get home from work. SO aggravating!


I actually decided to make a pit stop on my way to work, something I never do because I would be late. But Friday I stopped for a hot chocolate, I think Sheetz has the best hot chocolate. I also wore my stripped maxi skirt, black cardigan with scarf my best friend got me last christmas and some black boots. It was a very comfy day.  

I also, finally, got my blanket scarf I've been waiting over a month for from It's HUGE! And I absolutely love it. 

I went through all my scrapbook stuff I get at the flea market for .50 each to make my Christmas cards with. 

Saturday night I spent my night listening to Christmas music and making my Christmas cards.
I really enjoyed myself, as sad as that sounds. Sometimes you just need me time and that's exactly what that night was. And I was very proud of my cards. I only need to make a few more. :)

I also brought out my Mr. & Mrs. pillows I got from Hobby Lobby and my new Ross throw blanket. (these items will be in a later haul) It definitely transformed our bed though, I really love it. 


I did some shopping at Joann Fabrics because I got a 60% off coupon, I picked up Christmas presents to make.

That night we decided to build our Gingerbread Houses. Unfortunately we couldn't complete them. They will have to wait until we get back from our little vacation.

As you can see I bought the Charlie Brown version. :)

Have a great night!

I most likely won't be able to blog tomorrow night because we are driving home because of the storm on Wednesday. So I will talk to you guys on Wedding Wednesday!

Sunday Wish List

Happy Sunday!

Who else is excited for a short work week this week? I am, I am!
Today I'm showing you some items on my wish list, not a Christmas wish list(I'll save that for another time, after Thanksgiving), but some things I've been eying on Pinterest.

Adding a bow to knee high socks makes them so much more desirable!
You can find them here for $14.99

I want this contouring set by Anastasia so bad! I've heard so many good things about it!
You can find it here for $40.

How adorable is this cozy hoodie?! It's perfect for this coming winter and would be perfect to wear on Christmas day!
You can find it here for $42 on sale. 

I LOVE leggings but the fact that these have sequins on them make me want them even more, perfect for the holidays!
You can find them here for $37.50

Again, another pair of socks, but this time thigh high and they look super comfortable. 
You can find them here for $20.

My fiance & I are attempting to make gingerbread houses tonight. I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow. Haha. 

Have a great night!

Formula X Paint the Town

Happy Saturday!

I'm trying to decide whether or not I want to add the Formula X Paint the Town paint tin can to my Christmas Wish List. As if it's really a big decision... 

The price point is the same as last years, and it looks like their is only was of the same nail polishes as last years.
Need for Speed

This is the one from last year:

This year, instead of the chunky glitter, it's more of a subtle glitter, which I like more. 2013's set was a mixture of very bright neon colors where this year it's more toned down (which I like!)

Are you putting Formula X Paint the Town on your wish list?

The Body Shop Haul & Gift Ideas

Happy Thursday!

Guess what? Tomorrow's Friday! Haha, as if you didn't know. :)
A couple weeks ago when I was at the Philadelphia Premium Outlets The Body Shop had last year's Christmas items on sale with an additional 50% off the lowest ticket!

Check out the items I picked up. 

I got all 5 of the body butters for $12.50 and the 5 lip butters for $10!

Not to mention, how adorable is this packaging. I took out all the body butter's and put them in the bathroom. I'm currently using the Shea butter and I'm loving it! The container I've been using now has lasted me for almost 3 weeks now, and I use it every night. 

 I saved both of the packaging on these and plan on doing something crafty with them. 
I thought about make a wreath from the popsicle one.

I've also been testing out the lip butter and I must say I'm loving it. 

I thought I would share this because I think it's such a great deal and a good gift for friends who love The Body Shop. I also think it's great for testing out items that are more expensive. I never tried any of The Body Shop's products until now. I'm loving the Strawberry scent currently. I may end up purchasing it in the full size, but it'll take me a while to go through all the ones I have now. :)

The scent of the body butters really do last on your skin for a long time. Throughout the day I get wiffs of it here and there, which is nice to know it's lasting for more than just a hour! 

Have a great Thursday night!
