What I Love Monday – Part 3 November 18, 2013 08:23
Hello out there! Long time, no talk!
I know I haven’t posted in awhile, but I have been trying to get all moved in to my new place and I STILL don’t have internet. I don’t know how I am surviving. But I am back, and I am ready for another round of What I Love Monday!! Let’s get started, shall we?
- Amazon Prime
If anyone has ever considered jumping on the amazon prime bandwagon but just hasn’t done it yet…. do yourself a favor, and DO IT!! It is $80 for a year membership and it gets you free 2-day shipping on most amazon products, access to amazon instant video (which means you can buy a movie from amazon and watch it instantly on your tv or computer), and you can borrow books from the kindle lending library. I have only had it for a few months but it has definitely already payed for itself. The 2-day shipping is the bomb (do people still say that?). I think purchasing amazon prime for someone would make a great Christmas gift!
- Anthropology Mugs
I have had these anthro initial mugs for a couple of years now and I think I love them more every single time I use them. They are so cute that I keep them out by my coffee maker so that everyone can see them. They are the perfect size and I love the shape of them. I have given these mugs as gifts several times over the last few years. They are only $8 each so I like to get one with the persons first initial and one with their last initial and then wrap them up really cute with a bag of yummy coffee and mini bottles of kahlua or baileys! So fun!
- Dark Nail Polish
One of my favorite things about fall is that I get to switch from bright colors to dark when it comes to my nail color! I love hot pink as much as any other girl but there is just something about a dark navy or maroon nail polish that makes me happy! I think it symbolizes winter and hot chocolate and presents and all that fun stuff! One of my absolute favorites is Essie’s “wicked“, it’s a great dark burgundy that is perfect for the holidays!
- Aztec Dress
I am in love with this aztec dress from Shop Palm Tree. I am definitely wearing this on Thanksgiving! I have 2 different family get togethers to attend on Thanksgiving day and this dress is going to be a total life saver! I have a casual lunch in the afternoon and then more of a cocktail type event in the evening. I was expecting to have to run home in between and change my outfit but now I don’t have to! For lunch I will wear this dress with flat boots and a cardigan, and then for dinner I will change out my shoes for black pumps and swap the cardigan for either an edgy leather jacket or a fun black blazer. I will be sure to post pics for ya’ll!
- The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom
I am a big reader and am always looking for a good book to read. I recently read The Kitchen House while on vacation and finished it in 2 days! I am really bad at explaining the plots of books so I will spare ya’ll the agony and let you go to amazon and read it there. But I will say that if you were a fan of the The Help then you will love this book!
I would love to hear about some of things you are loving right now! Feel free to share in the comments. I am always looking for new things to try!
Well that’s it for me for today! I promise not to stay away so long this time. Have a great Monday!
p.s. I am working on another giveaway from one day this week, so keep checking in!
