Texting Gloves - Would You?

I hate having to pull off my mittens/gloves in order to text so I usually just send something that looks a little like this: Wha aer ouy doig tonigt+

So why didn't I think of these gloves?!

These keeps you warm but expose your thumb and forefinger, your main texters. With designers like Roxy and Juicy Couture, these will keep you fashionable as well.
Above, from left: Freehands Cashmere Gloves, $80; Roxy OMG Gloves, $22.

I didn't realize, once again, it had been so long since I wrote something in this. I am one of those recent college grads that basically has a full-time job trying to find a full-time job - so help a sista out! But anyways, CSN has asked me to do another review and I'm SO excited. Obviously with their 200+ stores, how could you not find something to love?

I've been looking for a really great pair of fall/winter boots and I know Shoes Got Sole will definitely hold what I'm looking for. Stay tuned for a review for my latest purchase!
Along with shoes, mailboxes, fitness equipment... check out these end tables. My mom definitely has her eye on this.

Summer on Sale! $20 and under...

We've still got a good month and a half, if not more, of quality sun shining down on us. But luckily, the fall clothes are on the racks and the summer clothes has been marked down. Here are some great finds for less than $20!

Rompers are hot for summer, and this one made by Roxy, regularly $43.99 is marked down to $19.97!

LOVE these cuffed capris! Only $19.97. Seriously ladies, check out Tillys!!

This bright skirt is a steal for only $9.97!

Dresses are all I wear in the summer. I love this one from Alloy. Ok, it's not under $20, but I love it, and I own it :)

Kathy Van Zeeland

Courtesy of CSN stores, I had the chance to review this fabulous wristlet made by Kathy Van Zeeland, one of my all-time favorite hand-bag designers.

While I own several Kathy Van Zeeland bags, this was my first wristlet and I was a little nervous because I'm sort of picky about the size of them. I like them to be big enough to carry everything you need for a night out, but still be small enough to just dangle on your wrist. They also must close correctly or everything will fall out when it is just dangling there!

Like all Van Zeeland bags, this was suprisingly roomy for a wristlet and I loved it! My roommate immediately asked if she could borrow it after she saw me with it. I definitely recommend you check out more purses from Kathy on CSN where they go for much cheaper than QVC, Macy's, Dillard's....

St. Patty's Inspiration

I hope you all had a lovely St. Patrick's Day... one of my favorite holidays! Seeing all that green got me thinking, why is this color abandoned? I very rarely wear it and I love it.. plus it makes my green eyes pop! So in honor of the green grass, St. Pat's, and shamrock shakes... here are a few beautiful green items to add to your wardrobe - and they won't break your bank.

I have a thing for fancy back detail.. this kelly green dress is from delias.

The back on this tank is gorgeous and only $26!

LOVE this tube dress from Old Navy.

Shoes!! Cute and Cheap!

March, St Patrick's Day, and Bangle Giveaway!

So I'm not going to lie, I'm really not a huge fan of wearing things around my wrist. I have had my fair share of watches, bracelets, wristlets, cuffs... and then I received an Alex and Ani bangle. My mind is officially changed, and guess what? You can have one too!

I am currently sporting the gorgeous "Crazy Love" bangle shown below (mine is in Russian Gold) and have received so many compliments.

I love Alex and Ani but what really got me was the little note that was sent along with the bracelet and the cute box it came in (I'll have to update with pictures when I finally get home in a few days). Check out their gorgeous jewelry and "bangle bar" where you can make your own customized bangles!

Want more? In celebration of March, Spring, and St. Patrick's Day (one of my favorite days) - Alex and Ani is giving one of my readers a bangle of their own.

The finish you will be receiving is in Silver. Hurry and enter, this giveaway is over in less than a week on March 12th!

How to win? One entry (mandatory) for posting a comment after visiting the ALex and Ani website letting me know your favorite piece from them!

This is great for work, class, or even a date. At $12, any of us could afford this!
Another cute top for work, class, or a date. Gorgeous ruffles! $15.

Ok, so they're not True Religion. But who can pass up a GOOD pair of jeans... at $13.95?!
I love pink. I love cardigans. ANOTHER $12 top.
This cute little "cardigan dress" is only $12! What a great deal and also available in mocha!

I LOVE H&M... it's probably one of the stores I'm at most frequently and spending all of my money at but then I just read this and it makes me really sad. I hope all places don't do this?!

Apparently bags of shredded clothing are being found in the garbage behind stores. They're either cut up or have holes punched in them as well as shoes that have been mutilated. This makes me really upset because a) I love clothes, why would you do this to them?! but most importantly b) we're in the toughest economic times ever and bags upon bags of clothing are just being thrown out and destroyed to make sure no one wears them? What's the point of this and why aren't they being sent to charities or even my loving hands?! :)

While I would love to say that my new years resolution would be so not be so MIA, my schedule just got even busier but I promise to try and update more often!

Wouldn't this look so cute under a cardigan? Only $11.97!Yea so I actually bought this dress when it was $40 and it is one of my favorites. Now it's only $19.99! Jealous!
I LOVE this dress. I'm buying it now to pair with cowgirl boots. Originally $44.50, now $14.99!!
