March Haul + Hermes?

Here's last month's haul and as mentioned before, a lot is from Old Navy.

I'm also really excited because I finally purchased my first (and only, most likely) Hermes bag through a re-seller site and it comes tomorrow! Can't wait! :)

Shopping Lately

I've been shopping sooooo much lately.. probably to subconsciously hit minimum spends on some credit cards I just opened in my goal to fly first class someday. I've been making so many purchases from Old Navy that I feel like I should open a credit card there but I know this is just a phase.. or is it?

Aside from Old Navy, I also shopped the Macy's VIP 30% off sale when it was going on and got this jacket I love! I really liked the styles from INC but the quality and fit just wasn't as nice as this was.

I also shopped Chriselle x J.O.A.'s collection from Nordstrom and of the three things I did try, I only liked this Chriselle x J.O.A. Blazer Minidress, though it is a bit long and roomy in the sleeves. Love that you can wear it as a dress or blazer. :)

Lastly, I noticed multiple coworkers wearing variations of Uniqlo's Waffle Crewneck shirts in long sleeves and short sleeves so I couldn't help going to check them out, thinking I'd like one in White. Howe…

YSL Toy LouLou Bag + Talbot's Reviews!

The Saint Laurent Toy LouLou Crossbody Bag caught my eye when it popped up on a Facebook ad from Nordstrom and I just had to find out if I thought I would love it as much as I did in my head after obsessing over it for a while. I know I mentioned just last post that I stopped shopping as much for myself but this is an exception. :)

Upon first opening the package, my first impression was that I love the Washed Light Pink color and that the bag is more structured than I thought. The color is closer to the modeling pics below.

Though I love the color a lot, I feel like the length is unfortunately too long for me so I am sending it back. It measures 7.8" x 5.5" x 2.7" with a 21"-22" strap drop. It would be perfect on someone who is 5' or taller, which is even just an inch taller than me so I really just need one more hole but the bag only comes with three. Also, note that it was extremely difficult for me to adjust the bag but I figure you would only need to d…

February Haul + Snowboarding

Here's February's haul, which is almost all from Gap and Old Navy except for the two Ann Taylor shirts I got from the outlet when I went for a short snowboarding trip with my family:

This cute little black purse was actually purchased on my Athens trip last month that I mentioned here. I was dying for a small, lightweight bag after wearing my heavy Chloe Paraty bag all around.

I went with my family to a mini snowboarding and outlet getaway over one weekend last month and only purchased two top from Ann Taylor (first pic above) and got many good deals for baby A - I definitely notice I've been on the lookout for deals for baby A much more than shopping for myself now.

January Haul + Athens!

A and I are trying to accumulate airline points to one day experience first-class, which has led me to shamelessly shop way too much and it all started in January. Here is January's haul:

A and I just came back from Athens last month but we sadly did not get to visit Santorini or Mykonos since it was great deal I purchased for Athens only but I definitely can't wait to go someday! I felt the four nights we spent there was definitely enough and here are some highlights from the trip:

December Haul + Mini Me and Bolognese Sauce

Right after I realized I didn't shop at all over Black Friday, I immediately went crazy shopping, which is a bit embarrassing to admit since I was so proud that I refrained from spending any money during that time. Here's my end-of-the-year haul:

I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays. Here I am with my mini me - I love matching her!

If you're looking for a quick and easy dinner recipe (that's also kid-friendly), I made this bolognese sauce that has hidden veggies along with some potatoes and garlic bread recently:
