Randomness: New Buys, Promo Codes, I'm a Winner & a Sugar Doll...

 Hi all! Happy Tuesday!

Today's post is more of a housekeeping post to catch up on some lingering fun-ness...here we go.

1) My Dolce Vita Pela sandals came in the mail yesterday...I was so excited for them but I'm sad to say they are going back :(

They were just ridiculously HUGE around my ankles, and considering the back zip is the only item securing these gorgeous shoes to my feet, it just didn't work. Maybe I have emaciated ankles?

On a different note, I ordered them from a cute retailer, Madison Los Angeles, and have tons of amazing items in their online store. Also, the promo code STYLEWATCH gets you 20% off! Not sure how long it's valid, though.


2) I wanted to send a great big thank you to Kim over at Anthroholic for these amazing Kensie sunglasses that I won from her blog giveaway last week. They might be a wee bit big on my face but I do not care - I luf them. Not a great photo of me...but oh well!




3) Thanks to Miss K from Love, Lipstick & Pearls who gave me the very sweet Sugar Doll award! Thanks sweetness. Now, I have to tell ya'll 10 facts about myself. Hoping not to repeat myself, here it goes...




  1. I cannot stand when people chew loudly or with their mouths open. I really have to go sit somewhere else. I think when we were kids my brother used to do this on purpose to irritate me. It worked. Well.

  2. My husband does 90% of the cooking in our household. It's not that I can't cook, I just choose not to. :) Plus, he's so damn good at it.

  3. I'm really good at laundry...and I'm an excellent folder. Just ask my mom....she has been impressed with my folding skills since I was 12 or so.

  4. I've only lived in Charlotte, NC for 2.5 years...I'm originally from the Windy City. I heart Chicago.

  5. I can't handle caffeine. I gave it up a few years back and even if I have half a Coke, I start shaking. I get really pissed when I find out that said restaurant gave me regular instead of decaf when I'm trembling and nauseous at 4 am.

  6. I am extremely loyal to my friends and family. You don't F with my friends or family. I'm scrappy - and I can take you down.

  7. I own more lipsticks and lipglosses than a woman should ever possess throughout her entire life. What can I say, I like to have options.

  8. While I clearly like to shop, I get very irritated when I find out I paid significantly more for something.

  9. In addition to my full-time job in fundraising/marketing, I am working at an incredible boutique a few weekend days per month. And.I.love.it.

  10. Someday I would love to open up my own boutique. Someday...
So, that's it! And I tag the follow lovely ladies with the Sugar Doll Award if they so choose to participate...check out their fabulous blogs!



Have a great day everyone!
