What a year it has been! I’m not sure if I’ve been perfectly well behaved, but I have had one heck of a ride! Honestly, I have more than a girl could ask for- love, laughter, memories and a little sparkle too! Honestly, over the year, Frugal Beautiful, and my idea of what a frugal, beautiful life can be has evolved. I’d rather have a few quality things, and a few quality people in my life than a bunch of clutter just to say I have it!
Kate Spade Bow Gloves / Gloves are a growing fascination of mine. They can be such a statement- you just have to be careful not to lose one! If I lost one of these, I would probably pout for a month.
State Necklace / Why yes, I hail from the golden state and this little necklace just makes me smile. State shapes + Glitter =instant happy.
Rose Gold Headphones / Why blend in when you were born to stand out? I would seriously be very happy to have these at my desk at work….plus no awkward “is she wearing earbuds?” when my hair is down!
Monogram Card Holder / Smart women are always prepared. I finally had new blogging business cards printed this year- it’s time to start handing them out!
North Face Hot Pink Pom Pom Hat / My head looks stupid in hats. Might as well go full pom-pom in a full color and just roll with it. I will fight the boring grey days with all I’ve got this winter!
Giant Gem Speaker / Yep, I sign in the shower. And in the kitchen. And pretty much everywhere. This little speaker is just too fun to pass up!
Ombre Gloves / Ommmbrreeeee. Mitten hands are just about the cutest things ever. Sure, you can’t play with you iPhone, but pretty sure mittens make everyone smile, even when it’s -10 out.
Bar Cart / One goal for 2015? Load up on booze and share it with people. I need a classy ass bar cart to do that.
Kate Spade Candle / Every time I peruse a place where Kate Spade is sold, I sniff this candle. I look at it longingly, then I put it back on the shelf after fighting with myself for a good 15 minutes.
Rebecca Minkoff Tote / There are so many things that are right about this tote and I have been lusting over it since springtime. Pink is just perfection.
Monogram Foil Stationary / SNA FOR LIFE! Put it foil baby, this monogram will not be changing for a long, long time. Time to send some class ass mail.
Amazing Grace Body Wash / This body wash by Philosophy has the best lingering scent ever. I got a travel size in a gift and got a little grumpy when I ran out of deliciousness. It smells phenomenal and a little goes a long way, totally worth the price.
Naked 3 Palette / I have Naked 1, + Naked 2 and they have been very very good to me. I’ve had the first Naked Palette since 2012. It’s literally lasted me that long and I use it all the time…such a good investment, it lasts forever- it’s just fun to branch out.
Hunter Boots / So, I own no rainy day apparel. This has been apparent to me when Matilda needs to go piddle in a puddle and my useless knockoff Uggs from Costco are sopping wet within an instant of being outside. It’s time for rain boots.
This Kate Spade bangle is a thing that I need. Okay, I really just want it…but I sort of need it…since it has been a mantra for me which has been heartily clung to for the past few months. High road. High road. Okay be a brat. NO, high road. Put it on a bangle and call it done.
All of these things are so darn fancy….a girl can dream right? Without dreams we are, and we have nothing- so we might as well dream big! I will be drooling over that Kate Spade Bangle and that Rebecca Minkoff Tote for a long while longer methinks… but, sigh….so pretty to stare at right?
