The Wednesday Wish List // 9.25.13

GOLD CHEESE KNIVES // I love anything in gold so of course I'm going to be down with a gold cheese serving set. This makes for a great holiday hostess gift too - Thanksgiving will be here before we know it!

MONOGRAMMED BRACELETS // I love these bracelets.  They are reasonably priced and would be great to wear stacked with your spouse's name/initials or kids too!

LEOPARD FLATS // Every year I get a new pair of leopard flats and these look quality -- I consider leopard print a neutral at this point, it just goes with everything!
I was in Charlottesville, VA this past weekend for a wedding and saw some good friends I haven't seen for awhile.  One of which is my friend Jess, from the blog Cheese Please by Jess. We were sharing our favorite blogs of the moment and hers was Elements of Style (mine is Peppermint Bliss). I started going through it yesterday and could not stop, it is an amazing blog - the perfect mix of eye candy and quality narrative.  So in honor of my immersion in Elements of Style, my Wednesday Wish List has a few things that I bookmarked along the way. LBE already had EOS in the blog roll - she doesn't miss a thang, you girls are in good hands!

LIGHT FIXTURE 1 & 2 // We are definitely getting one of these fixtures for our entryway.

IPHONE CASE // I love this iPhone case!

PET BED & SPRAY // I had not seen either one of these doggy delights!  Peyton will require both stat! 

EOS is a fan of these Spanx leggings. I am a loyal Lululemon-er, but I am willing to give them a try!

As always, you can view our past wish lists here.

The Wednesday Wish List // 9.18.13

JACKET // I’m looking for a lightweight jacket to ease me into fall since there’s already a chill in the air in New England!  I’m feeling olive this season.

BRACELET // This newly-released BaubleBar find is only $36  looks like something J.Crew would sell for at least double that price!

BLENDER // I totally missed the memo on registering for a quality blender when I got married. Sure, a Vitamix would be amazing, but I’m not dropping that kind of money on a blender. This one has awesome reviews. I think it’s time to put my old Oster (which struggles with a basic smoothie) out of its misery.
JUICE PLUS // I'm not wishing for this anymore  I actually got them in the mail this week and am super excited!  I decided after rave reviews to try Juice Plus!  It is on the expensive side for vitamins, but a savings if you buy smoothies or are juicing.  If you have any questions about them, let us know and if you decide to try them, buy them from my friend Kristi and she can also help answer any questions!

DRESS // This would be an amazing score if you have a warm weather trip planned in the November/December time-frame. I love Charlie Jade dresses because they are flowy and fun – a perfect addition to your resort wear collection.  Bonus, there's free shipping with no minimum all week on South Moon Under!

STEPHANIE JOHNSON // This is a deal you cannot pass on, I was so shocked when I came across it and saw the clearance prices!  I have expressed my unconditional love for Stephanie Johnson many times, her bags are SUPERIOR to all others  trust me I know.  I guess she must have done a deal with HSN and my guess is the viewers didn't know what they were looking at...that is the only explanation for these prices.  To put this into perspective, the train case is $22.00 on HSN, on Stephanie's website (we are first name basis) the train case is $75.00 - that is $31.00 of savings people!  I've said enough - happy shopping!!!

Sample Splendor Alert - Fall Fancy Edition!

Fall marks the time where you can begin the gradual move from minimal summer make-up to almost a full face.  Smoky eyes, deeper-hued eye shadows, and nail polishes are the look for the season.

Since we have given you some areas/colors to think about for fall, now is your chance to make your purchases! 

Below retailers are all in AMAZING gift right now!!!! 
Neiman Marcus is in gift if you spend $125.
One of my most favorite things was gifted to me by our friend Jessica and it is the Estee Lauder Limited Edition Zodiac pressed powder compact!
I use it almost every day for a little touch up in the afternoon.  It is the perfect little compact to absorb that pesky little bit of shine.  I happened to notice that Neiman’s has it and it would be the first thing I put in my basket if I didn't have it already.

I recently went on a girls trip to Las Vegas and one of my favorite things to do when visiting Vegas is hit the cosmetic counters!  I spent a considerable amount of time trying out products at Neiman’s and I was surprised how hard I fell in love with the Tom Ford Bronzer Brush - it is a seriously amazing tool!
Blue Mercury is also in gift! Their co-founder Marla Beck celebrates the anniversary of her company every year in September with an amazing gift with purchase when you spend $150.
Since $150 is on the high side for a gift with purchase, I would either stock up on La Mer and choose a Fall/Winter fragrance like "Love in Black" by Creed. It is said to have been the fragrance of choice of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
Lastly, old-faithful, is in gift as well! It's impossible to pass this $100 gift offer up! carries NARS so I will be using this opportunity to pick up a fall blush in Seduction and of course I will be picking up Arcona Magic White Ice and Gentle Solution which is what I use at night. Lauren loves NARS' Velvet Gloss Pencils for quick color on the go!
