Bucket List!

10 Feb BL1

I recently received my Mansur Gavriel bucket bag after almost two years of waiting. I’ve been wanting this bucket bag for a while and really love the black/flamma combination, which is lined in red leather. I love how simple the design is with a fun pop of color. The bags are highly coveted and made in Italy in small batches which is why they sell out SO FAST! I am totally obsessed with my new bag and wanted to share it with you along with an affordable alternative.

Mansure Gavriel bucket bags come in a variety of colors and sizes. You can choose from various colors for the lining as well. These bags are highly functional and move from day to night effortlessly.

Mansur Gavriel $395-$695 (depending on size.)BL1

I happened to stumble upon it while shopping at the Madewell store yesterday. I have been obsessed with Madewell’s jewelry for some time now. I love the finish of their gold rings and bracelets-It’s like a brushed, antique gold tone. It seems to compliment all of my other jewelry and definitely looks expensive. The great news, is that Madewell rings are affordable! The even better news is that this particular stack is on sale now for an additional 30% off!  original price$28, on sale for $20 online. If you shop in store, you can take an additional 30%off  and that brings these cuties down to $14!!!!!!  Come on….. let’s be ring twins!

Aspen Trip!

11 Jan A7

Happy Monday everyone! I got such an overwhelming response to my Aspen pictures that I’m going to share some more here. It was the first trip to Aspen for my wife and I but definitely not our last. I feel like the way we planned it was perfect. We landed in Denver and rented a car and drove to Aspen, which is one of the most beautiful stretches of snow capped mountains I’ve ever seen. The drive took 3.5 hours but flew by as we got lost in all the scenery. Once we arrived in Aspen we stayed 4 days which is a nice amount of time to see the sights and partake in activities. I really loved ice skating but the ultimate bucket list check off was snowmobiling deep into the Aspen mountains for hours. We even saw moose!!!!! As usual, we ate our way through the town- Aspen is known for their strong culinary game and  were not let down once. Everything we ate was amazing! And as far as scenery goes, everywhere we looked was straight off of a post card. It was breathtaking to say the least.

I keep getting asked “Is aspen expensive?” Expensive would be an understatement! It is off the charts crazy expensive from the hotels, to activities, to shopping, to dining. When places are this astronomical in price, a once in a lifetime visit will usually suffice, but there was something so magical about Aspen that I will go back and overspend, because frankly, it was worth it! I suggest everybody visit this gem during the winter months!

My Bedroom Makeover!

7 Dec

I’ve been wanting a tufted bed for a couple of years now and was unsure if I should just get a headboard or an entire bed frame. After shopping around, I decided to go with the entire bed frame SINCE IT WAS SO AFFORDABLE at Target! Once I purchased the bed frame, I went ahead and got two bedside tables as well. When the beautiful bed arrived and I felt weird just throwing my old mattress on there, soooooo I bought a new mattress and box spring at living Spaces. The new bed pretty much snowballed into practically all new bedroom furniture and accessories…. Once the complete bed was set up the night stands arrived, I needed lamps and cute decor so off I went to Lamps plus, Z Gallerie, Macy’s and Home Goods. Fast forward 2 weeks and my bedroom makeover is complete. I am so happy with it and wanted to share where I purchased everything from since most of them were BARGAINS! Minus the bedding- I went a little “fancy” with the bedding.

Anyhow, let’s get into the good stuff….places to purchase and prices.
