Warby Parker 2015 Spring Collection

I’ve worn glasses since the second grade and consider myself an eyeglasses connoisseur. I remember my first day well; it was summer and the first day wearing them I had dreaded baseball practice with a bunch of boys. My comeback was going to be, “Four eyes are better then two” cuz that would show ’em, right? I arrived at practice nervous and unsure about them. Surprisingly, no one really cared, and I eventually learned to love them. Every couple years I was allowed to pick out a new pair which for me was like Christmas. Glasses were and still are expensive. Enter Warby Parker. Their glasses ooze cool and come with an affordable price tag…they start at $95. If only they existed back in the 80s, I would have been in hipster heaven. If you don’t know who they are, you might live under a rock, but don’t you worry you’re pretty little eyes. I’m here to get you in the know pronto.

Shopping for a Coffee Table

Hey guys! I hope y’all have recovered from your food comas and paid off your credit cards from Black Friday because we’re not done shopping. Not quite yet anyway. I need a new coffee table, and I need your input. Well, to be honest I’ve needed a new coffee table for quite some time (since we moved into the house, I knew the existing one wasn’t quite right), but Thanksgiving evening it all came to a head when this little gem was finally unrolled and loved on. Ya, have to admit, I kinda caressed it’s awesomeness for a few minutes an hour or two or three or four (let’s be real). I’ve been lusting over it for years. Ever since my girl Emily Henderson rolled it out for the first time, I kinda went bonkers over it.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I loved (past tense) my present coffee table in our old place, but it just doesn’t fit in the space in this new house. It’s a 48″ x 48″ monstrosity that has overtaken the TV room. It’s enormous! The Boy and I can roll out a full sushi meal on it and have room to spare. It’s crazy huge (and for sale BTDubs). I loved it at the time because of it’s size, and it’s from Room and Board so you really can’t go wrong. However, in this new space, it must go.

What’s In My Bag

I think one of the most fun and interesting posts I see bloggers do is the What’s In My Bag post. Maybe it’s me being nosey and curious, or maybe it’s wanting to know another lady’s favorite lipstick or reading material. I’m not sure. But one thing’s for sure, I carry EVERYTHING in my bag. Since my commute is 3 hours long round trip, my bag is pretty much an extension of my home. I need all the essentials on hand in case any unexpected emergencies arise. It’s filled with everything I might need, but I try to clean it out once a month or it starts to overflow so badly it can’t be closed. Today happened to be a let’s clean the bag day, so I decided to share my bare necessities with you. And boys, if you are reading this, any of these items will rock your girl’s Christmas morning, so read on!

Thrift Score Thursday

Thrift Score Thursday

Hey you guys! Today I’m guest hosting slash Instagramming with the lovely ladies of Thrift Score Thursday. I seriously was so excited when I received an email from Brynne and Trisha that I leaped out of my chair. They sent me the email a couple months ago, but the guest posts were solidly filled until Halloween. And don’t hate on me for this, but I’m really bah-humbug on Halloween. Cringe, I’m sorry! Boo on me, I know! I mean, yes, I give candy to little children when they ring my doorbell. (And THAT doesn’t sound horrible and weird at all?!?! Oy!) I’m not The Grinch, but dressing up is SO not my thing. That is until this post apparently. I’ll get to more of that later, but I really want to get to the features first! So here we go!

Gift Ideas For Guys + Giveaway

The Boy can be THE MOST difficult person to buy a gift for. He’s not fussy. Nor is he picky. And he rarely says, “I need that.” On the rare occasion he does utter those words, he just buys it. Sooooo frustrating. I’ve always bought him a cookbook for Christmas (that’s kind of our thing), and a good standby is a bottle of cologne (booooring). He’s a sweatshirt and jeans kinda guy. No wool sweaters, no fancy ties. As the holidays draw nearer, my anxiety for gift ideas gets greater and greater.
