Hi all! I’m just coming back after an awesome weekend in Salt Lake City, Utah for the Build Your Blog Conference 2015! It was absolutely amazing and I was able to meet SO many awesome people and talk to a bunch of different brands. What I’m more excited about is to share it with you all! I also didn’t want to forget about my day job and give a lot of you some great work outfit ideas…because let’s be honest…that is what takes up the most time each morning when I’m getting ready.
But first…one of the absolute best things that happened to me was getting a free #Chatbook ….which is a cute 6×6 printed book of my instagram photos. It turned out so beautiful. And what’s more is that they gave me a code to give you all your first Chatbook for free! Just enter in the code: KSING108. I mean….it’s free…and did I mention they are so cute!
Work outfits….maybe this will help me for this week too!
I have this jacket in pink and absolutely adore it. I thought it only came in pink, but no…it comes in charcoal as well!
Slim Peplum Zip Jacket – Charcoal
I’m obsessed with this top below. I wear it all the time to work with black pants and flats or with leggings and boots.
And the watch…I’m still obsessed with this watch and still get a ton of compliments! It’s on sale for $185!! It was originally $250!!
I love Kendra Scott jewelry and not just because of her name! I gave a pair of earrings to my best friend Anne because they looked so good on her, but after I gave them away…I missed them so I went and bought another pair at a Nordstrom sale. I love these studs with the same color…and they are on Amazon..and they are prime eligible..cray!
i love it all and i hope you do too!!
Happy Sunday! I hope you all had a wonderful Valentines Day! In the spirit of love, I wanted to make sure to share some great deals with you.
First up…one of my oldies, but goodies…The Limited. For those who know me, you know I used to work at The Limited in college. I basically worked for clothes because I spent all of the money I made there on clothes…now my closet is filled with mostly Limited buys and yes…some from college. They really have perfect clothing for work! Right now they are having 40% off full price items! I’ll list some of my favorites.
I also love the Ashton shirt, which are on sale for 30% off! Total steal. Usually they are $49.95, but with 30% it’s only $34.95! I have the strawberry pink one (hot pink) and I wear it all the time! They also have adorable dresses in the same style!
Here are two of my favorites (as in just ordered)!
Ugh..and NORDSTROM!! Nordstrom is going to be the death of me (and my bank account). They are currently having a 40% Clearance Sale. There are so many great finds you guys! Shop the whole sale with the link below…I’ve also included some of my favorites!
Hope you all find some awesome steals like I did!
I LOVE Nordstrom! One of the big benefits of being back home in Columbus is being so close to a Nordstrom. Living in Milwaukee definitely made me addicted to online shopping because of the free shipping and also because there was no sales tax (No Nordstrom in the state of WI)! Since then Wisconsin now has a Nordstrom Rack, which added the sales tax back on but now I get to actually go into the store.
While my last post had a few picks from my favorite store, I neglected to tell you about the Clarin’s gift with purchase. If you spend $85, you can get a free travel pack on this amazing skin line. Again, thanks to my favorite blogger, www.mintarrow.com, for the tip to Clarin’s skincare and the free gift pack.
I bought this necklace below awhile back and am so happy it’s still in. I wear this all the time and it reminds me so much of the Gorjana line…but way less expensive! It’s only $16!!
I’ve been on the hunt for some cute “leather” leggings/jeans after I bought a cheap pair that were too big and ended up sagging off my booty. Note: Sorry Mindy and Megan who were flashed that night! I finally found some good ones that fit, look awesome, and didn’t break the bank. And they are on sale! Only $32.16!
Find them here: Women’s Hue ‘Leatherette’ Leggings
Ok…so just to warn you….this jacket below is NOT on sale and it’s not cheap, but I have to say I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! This pink color is so pretty and feminine and the fit is fantastic. The material is also so comfy. I’ve gotten a ton of compliments.
Link here: Women’s Topshop Tailored Peplum Jacket
Another Topshop favorite…..this Long Sleeve Space Dye Top! I wear this all the time (with the necklace above). It’s lightweight, a great length, and goes with everything…my mom even ended up ordering it! Which is not surprising, because she is pretty darn stylish! It’s only $35!
It comes in 4 colors! I have the ‘creme’ but it is really a light gray. My mom has the ‘black’, but it’s really a dark gray. Women’s Topshop Long Sleeve Space Dye Top
Also, Clarin’s has a great gift with a purchase of $85. You can type in code: MULTI at checkout and get a whole travel set worth $121.
Here are a couple of my favorite products from them (again thanks for this Mint Arrow!):
I put a few drops into my lotion to give myself a nice glow.
I’m done with makeup wipes…they are too harsh for my sensitive eyes
Hope you all enjoy as much as I do!!
Hey everyone….It’s been awhile since my last blog post. I kept trying to thing of good ones and decided that I should let you all in on some of my favorite things…..from tinted moisturizer to bags to jewelry. These are items that I’m consistently asked about when out, at work, or in general. A lot of these are suggestions from friends or blogs I follow so I will give credit when credit is due! Here goes:
My Black Michael Kors Watch:
I get asked about this every time I wear this. It is $250, I had gotten a really great deal on it for 20% off at Piperlime when they were having a sale.
Guess what? It is on sale for $154.95 right now on Amazon!! I can’t even believe it. Over $100 off. Get it here!!Michael Kors Bradshaw Chronograph Black Dial Black Ion-plated Unisex Watch MK5550
Next up: My Tinted Moisturizer from TARGET!! Yes, I said it…TARGET!!
This stuff is the bomb! I usually put my MAC Pro Longwear Concealer on trouble areas and then put this over top. It gives me great coverage, blends the concealer and is not heavy at ALL! The best part…it’s only $11.99. Another great benefit…it lasts forever. My mom lent me hers during Thanksgiving of 2013 and let me keep it. I have been using the same bottle since then…November 2013 until February 2015. Unreal! Get it here!
Those who know me, know I love a good scarf. The minute the temperature drops below 60 degrees, I’ve got one on. My favorite, go to scarf is this Women’s Tasha ‘The Ringer’ Infinity Scarf (2 for $38)
There are 2 for $38! I’m not joking when I say they are my go to’s. I had gone to Nordstrom’s personal stylist in Columbus, Sean Wolfe (adore him) and he had paired the gray and yellow ones with some cute skirt outfits. I now have Gray, Black, Yellow, and Purple! My mom has the red one that I occasionally borrow. Infinity scarves are so easy because you don’t have to fuss with how to wear them/tie them. These ones are super lightweight and soft too! Get them here! Women’s Tasha ‘The Ringer’ Infinity Scarf (2 for $38)
P.S. The Nordstrom Personal Stylist service is amazing. They do not pressure you to buy anything (although I ended up spending $700 for two suits, two scarves, two blouses, and an awesome dress for work). I was on the hunt for a new work ensemble. I highly recommend it.
I’m a big fan of Lululemon leggings, but sometime my budget doesn’t allow me to spend that much. I went to the Nordstrom Semi-Annual Sale and found a pair of Zella Live In Capri’s in Pink and fell in love. I ended up buying another pair, the Live In Cross Dye ones (pictured above in pink). They are so comfy, so much cheaper than lulu, and they stay in place when I’m doing yoga or barre! I absolutely hate having to pull them up during practice. Right now, Nordstrom Rack has a pair on sale for $24.97! Find them here! The cross dye ones above are out of stock but you can find the black pair here! Women’s Zella ‘Live In’ Cross Dye Leggings, Size Medium – Black Black Size Medium They are $52 and come in black, navy and pink! You will thank me later.
I have to thank my co-worker/friend, Kacey, for turning me on to the Un-Fancy Blog! Caroline is a fashion blogger that creates capsule wardrobes…basically a minimalist wardrobe, which is opposite of what I have! Although I couldn’t get to this if I tried, she has some great basic pieces that I have fallen in love with. One of them is this Junior Women’s Street Level Reversible Vegan Leather Tote & Wristlet – Black
Kacey said the inside smells weird when you first get it, but 1) I didn’t notice it and 2) she said it went away. I absolutely love this tote. It’s very simple, reversible…the inside is a Cognac color, and it’s only $48. It holds EVERYTHING! I personally like the black side better, but I’ve worn the Cognac side as well. It comes in Black/Cognac, Hematite/Black, and Pink/Taupe. Find it here! Junior Women’s Street Level Reversible Vegan Leather Tote & Wristlet – Black
That’s all for now! Let me know what your favorites are!

The last two months have been a whirlwind of activity, including moving from Milwaukee to Columbus and starting a completely new job. It has been an adjustment to say the least. One of the great things that moving always pushes me towards is cleaning out my closet. I got rid of 7+ full trash bags full of clothing, shoes, bags, scarves, coats and more.
What else does that lead too? Making room for better things. It’s also a sign in life, right?… Getting rid of old things to make room for new and better things 😉
I’ve recently become obsessed with this blogger Corinne aka Mintarrow. She is a blessing and a curse for me. I literally buy everything she suggests… From new Frye boots to PMD (personal microdermabrasion). She finds the best deals on everything.
I’m going to get some of my new outfits together for you all, but in honor of mint arrow, I’m pointing you in the direction of big deals!! Nordstrom is currently having a 40% clearance sale! I die. I’ll show you some of my favorites! Enjoy!
All the best!
