Yay! It’s Fri-day!
On Tuesday night, my girlfriends and I had our annual scarf exchange!
This is one of my very favorite traditions we do each year :).
We treat this like a Christmas White Elephant exchange…we all bring a scarf in a wrapped bag, draw numbers, and then we open them one at at time. You can either open a new bag or steal from someone else. Once a scarf has been stolen twice, it’s frozen and cannot be stolen again. Make sense? We meet at Starbucks every year and combine our three favorite things…coffee, scarves and friends.
Words cannot express how much I love these ladies.
Speaking of ladies that I love…last week, I woke up at my usual 4:30 am, got my coffee and realized our internet was down. I called our provider and was told we were experiencing an area-wide outage. So, I went back to sleep (if I have no internet, there’s not much I can do). Apparently, I should have notified my friends that I would be sleeping in and not blogging that morning…
When I woke up that morning, I laughed really hard. On top of these text messages, one of my friends (ahem Sheaffer) had also called me three times (I sleep with my phone on vibrate, so it didn’t wake me up). The good news is that I ever do go missing, I know my girls will be looking for me really soon ;).
You ladies know I’m passionate about my skincare…well, earlier this summer, Erika started selling Rodan + Fields and even though I’m super into the products I love…I told her that when I ran out of what I had, I would try something from her. Well, about a month ago, I ordered my first batch of stuff (the Redefine series) and I’m in love! I am actually quite shocked by how much I love it! I noticed yesterday that Erika has a new special going…
…so, I thought I would share it with you! With every new Preferred Customer order right now, you get to select a free pair of Stella & Dot earrings! Woohoo, right?!?! Also…
…she’s giving away one of these fabulous necklaces (that I wear all the time!) to anyone who signs up to be a part of Erika’s team. I know several of you ladies have emailed me about working from home…you should talk to Erika about it. She is totally in love with her new job from home!
Lots of you wanted to know two things about this picture…where did I get the sign and where did I get her shoes? Well, Andrea gave me the sign…but I found them on Etsy here and the shoes are here :).
I’ve finally updated Shay’s Closet across the top of my page (I forgot to do it in August!). I added some things I’m loving right now for early fall…
I got so excited when I found this image on Pinterest! Those are my booties that I told you about last month! Don’t they look so cute here?!?!
The booties are available in all sizes in black.
The scarf in this picture reminded me of my very, very, very favorite scarf!
And speaking of scarves…sigh…last year, this scarf was all over Pinterest…
…and stupid me, didn’t buy it. I was kicking myself after it sold out and even called Zara and asked them if they would be bringing it back this season and they said no. Sigh. I just love it. So, my mission has been to find a similar scarf for this season and I think I have! Look what I found…
I panicked yesterday and ordered both of them :). I have a feeling you’re going to be seeing me wear them all fall :).
And today, my Buffalo Check shirt is back in stock at Gap!! Eeeks! It sold out so quickly last week, so if you want one, today is the day!
And remember last year when we all flipped out over Gap’s puffer vest?????
It’s baaaaaack! Yup! The puffer vest is back! Last year, it sold out Thanksgiving weekend and was never re-stocked, so if you missed it last year, now is your time :).
And coming Monday…my new series inspired by two reader emails. I’m really excited about this!! Come back to check it out :).
Happy Friday friends!! Don’t forget to check out my foodie blog…
…it’s my Spicy Sausage and Potato Soup tonight!
