Tres Chic Boutique // Put A Bow On It!

bow ring

There are a few things I love most in life, and one of those is bow jewelry. Maybe it’s the chic, Kate Spade-esque look of a bow, or my undeniable love of presents that has me swooning. I have necklaces, bracelets, earrings (that I wear daily and my sister hates because they are beginning to tarnish *insert sobbing here*) and now I have the most gorgeous little midi-ring thanks to my friends at Tres Chic Boutique! If you’ve never owned a midi ring, let me go ahead and answer the 2 questions I know you’re wondering about – 1. Yes, they’re comfortable. 2. No, they will not fall off your finger. If you have a toddler aged child, it will fit them like a standard ring fits you. My 3 year old thinks this ring is hers, despite my insisting it’s actually mine, because “…but Mom, it fits MY finger better!” :-)

Don’t be fooled by all my bow talk; Bows are not the only jewelry I’m swooning over from Tres Chic Boutique…I’d also take this, this, this, and these (which I find hilarious) in a hot minute!! They offer such great prices, especially on large statement necklaces.

Now for a fun little giveaway where EVERYONE WINS!! You will win either a $5, $10, or $15 gift card to Tres Chic Boutique, and entering is easy as pie!

Visions of Gray

I have been seeing some of the most beautiful closets going around on Pinterest, magazines, and blogs lately. This closet, designed by Catherine Kwong, with fashion blogger Eadie Blair in mind takes the cake. Kwong created a piece of art, layering dark walls with lighter built-ins, and showcasing all the beautiful clothes in brighter, more vibrant hues. The slanted shelves displaying fashion books, the inset bulletin boards upholstered in Kelly Wearstler’s “Channels” fabric, and (below) the Andy Warhol “Chanel #5″ poster all create such a glamorous space.

If this were mine, I would never leave my closet. I would eat, sleep, and die in that closet.

Here are a few others that have me thinking gray-is-good!

Carrie Bradshaw’s Closet. Can I just have the shoes?

Here’s a quick glimpse at my vanity area in my closet, in “gray” of course:







Make sure you enter to win the deer necklace (pictured above) here.

My husband has been out of town for nearly 2 weeks, and comes home today, FINALLY!! Being a single mom is not a joke. I am exhausted, and in serious need of a shower. ;-)

See you tomorrow for my Friday Lust List!

Bonus Giveaway!

I know some of you were really quite bummed that you didn’t win the POPSUGAR box, but as promised, I have another giveaway for you! After buying one of these for myself, I decided that y’all needed one too. It’s just too cute to keep to myself! I have also included a TON of ways for y’all to enter to win, including a “refer-a-friend” option that allows daily submissions. Get a head-up on the competition. ;-)

Good luck!

My Weekend

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a lovely weekend. Me and my little family spent the weekend at home, relaxing, after getting rained in. I guess summer here in Texas is finally coming to an end.

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw this picture of Camryn with all her pumpkins.

I saw this picture on Pinterest, and I think the little mice would be the perfect addition to my steps on Halloween.

Camryn and I were feeling festive on Friday and spent the afternoon doing Halloween crafts. I found the wooden masks from Michaels for a dollar, and we already owned the paints, so our project was only $1. Hours of entertainment = a good $1 investment.


IMG_2780 On Saturday we baked sugar cookies and decorated them with a LOT of sprinkles.

The rest of my sunday was spent organizing my closet, which you guys will see pictures of later this week.

Stay tuned for tomorrows post on my favorite beauty products under $10.
