Free luxury Benefit gift with my Sephora points.

I ordered my holiday cards today at Sugar Paper and picked up these notepads and cards to keep on hand.

Rocking the glitter nail trend: Essie's "Lady Like" and OPI's "Crown Me Already." 

Nap time for Nala Riggins.

Review: Missoni For Target

I finally received the majority of my Missoni for Target order and thought it'd be fun to give a little review! Overall, I am super pleased with the quality of everything especially for the prices.  I think my favorite things are the two trays, foldable makeup bag and the blue multi color zig zag sweater!  The only thing I wasn't in love with was the rainboots mainly because they were too big in the calves on me and I have a Jimmy Choo for Hunter pair I like better.

Did you score anything from the line? Favorites?

Wedding: New Stationery

{click any photo to enlarge}

It's our 4 month anniversary today and I wanted to share my new stationery with my married name.  My mom got it for me for my birthday back in July and I finally received it last week- LOVE it!

My name was written in calligraphy and then letterpressed into the paper along with a fleur de lis on both the stationery and outter flap of the envelope.  I also had a fleur de lis liner added to the envelopes and gold hand painted borders added to the the stationery and envelope.

My new stationery is from my favorite paper store, Sugar Paper, who did all of our wedding paper goods- HIGHLY recommend them!

Recipe: Martha Stewart's Smoky Sweet-Potato Soup

I got this recipe from my sister's Martha Stewart magazine October issue and thought it be fun to share with you all... In a total blonde moment, I just realized I used butternut squash instead of sweet potatoes... haha major fail on my part!  That's probably why I thought it was a tad off- it was still good but if you make it I would use the sweet potatoes like the recipe asked for.

♥ Recent Outfit

One of my best friend's got married this weekend and I wore this BCBG dress with nude Louboutins and some red lipstick- Maybelline "Very Cherry" to be exact- to the rehearsal dinner Thursday night.  Nala had fun helping me get ready!

Meet Nala Riggins!

Sorry for the radio silence for the last few days: I am in one of my best friend's wedding this weekend (so excited for her and her fiance!) and we adopted this little babe from the Pasadena Humane Society on Sunday!

Her name is Nala Riggins (we are big Friday Night Lights fans!) and she is 2 months old and weighs in at 2 lbs.  She is so happy to be in her new home!  I haven't introduced her to Boots yet (me and my Dad's cat- she lives with my Dad) but I know they would love each other!

The sweetest sales woman at Target was bringing this set of 8 Missoni plates from out back and handed them right to me- major score! Seriously can't wait to get my packages in the mail and to post a review.

Current Obsession: Missoni For Target

The eagerly anticipated "Missoni for Target" line launched in the middle of the night (I got 2 hours of sleep last night!) and I was at my computer ready to do some damage and this is what I scored... I'm obsessed with the home goods- these will be a great option for outdoor and casual dining!

I figure I can always return what doesn't work out or give to friends (or readers!).  I also went into 3 Targets today because there were a few things I wanted (plates, bowls and possibly the carry on suitcase) but there was not one thing left! I will update once all of these goodies arrive with a review and pictures.
