I’m taking a little blogging break this week to get some other stuff done but I wanted to do a quick, Instastories round-up for y’all before September is over! All of you are so sweet to be interested in what I’m doing on the daily, but since I currently have less than 10k “followers” on Insta I don’t have access to the handy-dandy, “swipe up to shop” feature! As a result I get dozens of inbox messages asking me for links to the items I post about, so I’m linking everything in this blog! I’ll try to do this every month until I get to 10k and can link in the story for you to click on! I honestly don’t care if I never reach 10k though because it’s not the numbers, but the engagement, that matters to me, and y’all are the BEST followers I could ever ask for! So bear with me if we never get the swipe feature! I think you deserve to have it, no matter who you’re following, but you’ll have to take that up with Instagram!
Even more than my birthday and Christmas I love Valentine’s Day! It’s the one day of the year you can be beyond romantic and sappy and no one can make fun of you! You can wear pink and red and dress up without anyone thinking it’s odd or asking you, “why?” Chocolate calories don’t count and people are just sweeter. ❤️ I love giving gifts on Valentine’s Day but I also don’t hate receiving them! Here are 6 things that would make my little heart go pitter-patter if handed on the 14th!
My birthday wish lists seem to get shorter every year because my husband is an extremely generous gift giver plus I frequently treat myself with gifts… So there’s that! However I was recently chatting with my Etsy friend Sabrina and she told me about the Minc. You’re going to die. I died. And heaven is the Minc. (On sale at Joanne for $119 $149 plus 2% cash back through Ebates!) So that is now on my number 1 wish list item this year.
TWO / the book “How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are” — need I explain? THREE / basically any of the creations on my Bow & Drape profile. FOUR / semi-matte NYX city lip creams in any of the peach/pink colors. FIVE / the perfect DDSLL girl’s clutch with pearl metallic leather and grayscale rose fabric. SIX / A single serve (8oz. – 10z.) French press. I love my 16oz. Bodum French press but don’t always need to make that much coffee at once. I end up wasting half of it because it gets cold before I’m ready for the second cup. SEVEN / The most perfect blue beaded tassel earrings ever by Lisi Lurch. Anyone else getting a distinct Holly Golightly vibe?
Do you make wish lists for gift-giving holidays every year? What is on your fantasy wish list?
