    How to use Rakuten… and always get a sale

    The thing is, I love nice things… but, I also love saving money. Not in like a dumpster diving or hoarding used toilet paper for later Extreme Cheapskates kind of way. It’s more like, if I go to the grocery store and I see that Bigelow peppermint tea is on sale and Stash Moroccan mint […]

    What I Wore This Week: OK, like over the last two weeks…

    These outfits are from the last 2 weeks ago. This past week I was a little lazy and didn’t take any outfit photos — I’ll do better this week, I promise! Saturday: Stayed home all day, but went out for dinner in the evening with Cassandra and Caleb to L’Express. Ugh, I love French food… […]

    Things I Would Buy: If I didn’t all ready own it

    Item(s): Chanel AW06 Chevron Jacket & Skirt Set. Reason(s): This post is really just serving as a PSA incase you were ever looking for this jacket.

    What I Wore This Week: My husband’s first week-ish in Montreal

    Wednesday: Took a visit to my old high school to see their new auditorium, where the school plays and academic ribbon ceremonies now take place, and to learn more about donating a seat. To be clear, it’s not like I live in Bruce Springsteen’s song “Glory Days.” While high school could’ve been better, it also […]

    What I bought this week: Byredo Roll-On Perfume Oil

    Item(s): Byredo Roll-On Perfume Oil in Mojave Ghost… plus, I asked for a free sample of Bal D’Afrique. Reason: Byredo’s Tree House candle is in my top 3 re-buy candles. It makes sense (scents?), since Byredo began their brand with the best way for us to literally burn our money — candles. Tree House is […]

    Things I Would Buy: If I was going to multiple summer weddings

    With wedding season around the corner, these are my picks for the ol’ “omg I have too many weddings coming up and don’t want to buy 7 different dresses” problem.

    What I wore this week: Lots of meals out

    Tuesday: Manicure and pedicure appointment at Spa St. James. After that dismal pedicure in Panamá, where it got all smudged (likely because the top coat was old/gummy), this time I brought my own base polish, nail polishes, and top coat. For whatever reason (let’s be honest, it was probably because of some Kate Moss article), […]

    All the fit & sizing info you need | Re/Done denim shorts reviews

    To me, white denim = preppy. … and not in a good ironic-preppy Vampire Weekend way. Off-white denim though? Well, the gloves are off and (all my) wisdom teeth are out. I’m stronger now, I’m ready for the house off-white denim. … but, like Vampire Weekend’s single, “Step,” I can’t do it alone. Enter: Re/Done’s […]
