Thursdays Thirsts

I have been looking at some of the new trends for fall and what I want to buy once the little one gets out of my belly! Here are a few items on the list.

 

 


Free People Extreme Flare Jeans

$148.00 by Free People at shopbop.com

And I used to have some of these in college but they were maybe 2 or 3 sizes smaller than my present size!

 

 


Pierson Backpack

$395.00 at Tory Burch

The little backpacks have been in the magazines and I really like this Tory Burch!

 


Milly Paraiba Hand Crochet Rachel Sweater

$268.00 by Milly at Revolve Clothing


Women's Crochet Sweaters

$34.94 at Old Navy

Crochet sweaters are going to be big as well! I love these. I actually picked up the Old Navy one last week!

These are a few of my favorite things

So I have a lot of favorite things! It seems impossible to have 1 favorite thing! So here are few of my current favorite things:

 


Select Cover-Up

$17.00 at M·A·C

I keep this in stock! It is great for coverup and under eyes. Even if I do not put on any makeup, I have to put this on!!

 


Essie Nail Color, Turquoise & Caicos

$8.00 by Essie at Macy's

I love this flirty and fun color! I will probably get it again this weekend! Essie polish goes on so smooth!

 


Miss Jessie's Curly Buttercreme

$32.00 at Target

When I wear my hair curly or any of my non-straight styles, ( even in a ponytail), I use Miss Jessie's Curly Buttercreme. It is very moisturizing and helps with frizz.

 


Gucci beige and navy GG canvas logo stripe hobo bag

Hubby got my last Gucci this past Valentine's Day. It seems to be one of my favorite's this year!


NARS Sheer Blush (In Style Award Winner) Orgasm

$27.00 by NARS

My favorite blush! I actually keep this in stock too! It will go well with any skin shade and and it gives you that fresh after sex look ( if there is a such thing as being fresh after sex!! LOL). I think you know what I mean. A slight flush to the cheek is sexy!


Free People Tie Dye Maxi Dress

$168.00$95.00 by Free People at Revolve Clothing

You may know by reading many of my posts that I absolutely love maxi dresses. Pregnant or not! You can wear them through the summer as is or in the fall with jean jackets and still be cute and comfy!

 

Do you like any of my favorite things? What is one of your favorite things that you have to have?

Margarita Popsicles Inspiration

Ok! I cant have these with alcohol but I can without! But don't they look and sound great! I challenge you to try these for a labor day treat! I think I will. A lot of my girls will be here and I think they will appreciate these! Do you have any unusual treats that you will try or will you take on my challenge?

Recipe from Food Network

 

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons tequila
  • 2 tablespoons orange liqueur (recommended: Grand Marnier)
  • Kosher salt, for garnish

 

  • Special Equipment: 4 small cups (recommended: Dixie), 4 popsicle sticks

FYI use Mike's Hard Lemonade in Strawberry instead of tequila to get the strawberry effect

 

 

Combine sugar, lime juice, water, lemon juice and orange juice in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Once cool transfer to ablender with tequila, orange liqueur, and lime wedge and process until smooth. Pour into the cups and cover the top of each cup with foil. Place the popsicle stick in center of cup (down through foil, which will hold it in place). Freeze until hard, preferably overnight. Remove from freezer and run cup under warm water to loosen popsicle. Garnish with kosher salt and serve.

Mixology with Patterns

So one of the trends that I have been wanting to rock is the mixing of patterns. I have yet to do so.... Here are some ideas for inspiration.

Rather it is a lounging and relaxing day with the floral top and striped maxi, a night out with your boo withe the hot pink tulip skirt, striped fitted tee and leopard bootie (which are hot!!), or a casual work day with polka dot, striped blazer, jeans and a nice pop of color pump... you can mix patterns and be chic and stylish!

Realistically, all of these ideas can make you feel cute and make statements. I would wear them all. Would you? Tell me what you think!

Toms and Bobs

So I know most of you have heard of TOMs shoes. If not they are a company with a movement of shoe giving shoes to improve the lives of needy children through our purchases. Well since then another company via Skechers have came up with the same concept. TOMs calls their movement the One for ONe Movement and every pair you buy they give one pair to a child in need. Bobs shoes are doing the same thing.  In my research I see that TOMs have more styles and colors to chose from and Bobs are a tad scarce in variety. I do want to buy some and help a needy child! No matter which company. Why not both?!!

Check these out and go to their sites to look on your own!  Bobs and TOMs

 


Skechers bobs earth mama flats

$44.99$39.99 by Skechers at Kohl's

 

 


Skechers Women's Bobs-Club Open-Toe Slip-On Wedge

$54.99 by Skechers at Endless.com

 


Skechers bobs flats

$44.99 by Skechers at Kohl's

 

 

Skechers Bobs is designed with style, comfort, and generosity. It's the shoe that helps children around the world-for every pair purchased, Skechers donates a pair to kids in need.
