A Few Favorites

For my first post, I thought I’d share some of my favorite sparkly things.  It’s hard to limit it to just a few but I’m going to do my best.  Plus, I’m sure there will be lots more to come in the near future as well.

This is probably the most sparkly piece of clothing I own. I purchased it at Forever 21 during my pre-Vegas shopping with my girlfriends. What was purchased as a joke ended up being one of my favorite things that trip (although I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to wear it again, as it’s VERY short). I even ran in to another girl wearing the same one in our hotel!

This is the first chandelier (and so far the only!) that I purchased. It’s turquoise, which is my favorite color (and the color of my room). It was the perfect addition when I re-decorated my room. It definitely won’t be the last chandelier I purchase!

When I studied about my junior year of college, I was lucky enough to travel all over Europe. I went to Paris with my girlfriends and then back with my sister when she visited. The best memory I have of Paris was when Natalie and I popped champagne in front of the Eiffel Tower at midnight when it sparkles!

New York is one of my favorite cities in the world. I’ve always dreamed of living there so I visit as frequently as I can. Last Labor Day my mom and I went to visit and went to a rooftop bar. This was our view. It was right before the 10-year anniversary of 9/11 so the colors were red, white and blue!

As I mentioned earlier, I went to Vegas for the first time in February. It was the most surreal trip and we were so lucky because we had some really great people help us out tremendously! Here are some of my outfit choices laid out in our suite!

What girl doesn’t like getting a gift in The Little Blue Box? Here is a display in Tiffany and Co. in New York City. Ice cream cones are topped with a gorgeous pink diamond. That’s some cherry on top!

My sister Natalie graduated from college in May, so I wanted to do something special for her. Being that I have a Michael Kors watch addiction, I thought it was finally time to pass it on to her. The watch was perfect for her- pink, brown, and even a row of diamonds around the face! She loved it!

After a trip to the Hamptons last summer with my friend, Ally, we took her on her first trip through New York City. We figured what better tourist-trap than Times Square? Our friend Dan was driving and jumped out of the car to quickly snap this shot and it’s always been one of my favorites!

This year for my birthday, my boss bought me this bracelet. It was so special and thoughtful and I was so surprised. She knows me well because it’s Michael Kors and turquoise. I couldn’t have picked a better gift myself!

Over the last few years, I’ve decided that I deserve to buy myself a special birthday gift. I like to buy things that I normally wouldn’t (and can justify it by saying it was my birthday). This year I bought my first pair of Jimmy Choo shoes and this skirt. It’s all things I love in one: sparkles, sequins, fringe, and lots of colors. Then my boyfriend got me quite the accessory to go with it: this Michael Kors Hamilton purse (he even picked it out himself!). This was to-date my best birthday ever!

Within a week span this summer, my boyfriend and I attended 3 weddings! The first one was in Chicago and the second two were in Indianapolis (on the same day!). They were both dear friends so I was so lucky that they were spaced out enough to go to both! This is the dress I wore (on loan!) from All Saints. I was so obsessed with it and it was the perfect transition from day to night! (All three weddings were incredible…I want more of my friends to get married!)
