1) SUPER FUN BACKPACK
After my last vacation, I realized I really need a backpack for when I’m traveling. It’d be nice when I’m at the airport and on the go to just throw my bag over my shoulders and be hands fee. I was using this big messenger bag and it was so heavy and annoying to drag around! So on the hunt I go! I found a few really cool options like a Vince Camuto Convertable Backpack and a gorgeous B Brain Atwood. But I think the winner is this Patent Croc Topshop one! It’s a good size that I can pack some essentials (and some non-essentials… hehehe) but not too huge so it’ll work for every day too. Sold!
2) BENEFIT COSMETICS ADVENT CALENDAR
Holy smokes this is the most amazing idea ever! Not only do I love Christmas and traditional treat-filled advent calendars but fill that calendar with fun Benefit products?! Gasp!! You get a new product every… single… day from December 1st until Christmas. WHAT?! It’s a dream come true! Basically, this is the best gift ever for any beauty-holic in your life. No doubt these will sell out fast so pick up yours today!
3) IT BY ALEXA CHUNG
Ok fashionistas, how much do we love Alexa Chung? I mean, her style is so fabulous it boarders on a level of insanity! The good insanity that makes us all say “Damn, that’s freakin’ awesome!” So when I heard she was penning her first book, I pre-ordered immediately. It came out on October 29th and Amazon promptly delivered it that day! I’m looking forward to sitting down to read this “It Girl’s” book sooner rather than later! If you’ve had a chance to read it already, what did you think?
4) SOCIAL MEDIA OVER HALLOWEEN
I forget every year how amazing and sometimes totally hysterical it is to see everyone’s Halloween shenanigans on social media. You guys have gone crazy with all your awesome costumes! Celebrities seemed to be extra creative this year too! What did you go as? What celebrity do you think had the best costume this year?
5) WILDFOX PAJAMAS
I’m a fan of Wildfox’s fun whimsical designs (see here and here) so I love that they’ve expanded into PJs! Their cheeky designs and saying always make me smile and laugh. These are a few of my favs from the new collection.
