AUGUST WISH LIST

Out of the items on my list last month, I purchased an Akola necklace (x2, great sale!), a Barbara Gerwit dress (another great sale!), and I am striking the Apple Watch off of my list because I bought a new little Fitbit instead. It was absolutely the right choice.

Custom Ring – I went to try on my new ring over the weekend and it’s still not quite ready. This process has taken way longer than I had hoped, but I can’t wait for the final result!

New Computer – This is still on hold. I’m going to wait a bit now that I am settling into new car payments.

There’s nothing else on my wish list at the moment, but I’m sure that will change come September!

PASSING ON THE IWATCH

I have decided not to get an iWatch after all. Hearing so many mixed reviews has made me very hesitant to spend that much on one item that I will probably be frustrated by.

Instead, I purchased the updated version of my old Fitbit.

I bought this about a week ago and I had trouble getting it to synch right from the get go. I contacted Fitbit’s online support and they sent a replacement that same week. The new one works perfectly and I LOVE it!

I am back on track with my steps with its reminders to move, I don’t miss a call now that it vibrates to alert me, it can also tell you when you get a text. I like that it’s small and doesn’t steal attention from my bracelets. It’s just what I needed!

They are listed as $99.95 on Fitbit’s website, but I bought mine at Best Buy for only $59.96. Sometimes it does pay to visit the store!

THE AKOLA PROJECT

I believe I have established that my cabin has terrible lighting and I do the best I can with what I have. With that in mind, here is an all white get-up that was perfect to battle this summer humidity while still being comfortable in the sub zero temps of the average office in the summertime.

Linen Shirt: Old from Old Navy  | Jeans: J.Crew | Shoes: J.Crew | Necklace: The Akola Project

I ordered this super cute necklace from The Akola Project last week and LOVE IT.
They were having a major sale on their website and I snagged this $86.00 necklace for only $35.00! They are still on sale and come in a variety of colors. You can also choose between a star or a cross. Check them out now before the sale disappears!

BETTER THAN EXPECTED

A couple of weeks ago I bought a pair of earrings through an Instagram sale.
They looked cute in the photo but I wasn’t too impressed when they arrived. It turns out that they are actually pretty great.

Apologies for the dumb selfie.

I wore them for the first time over the weekend and I’m in love!
They were perfect with my teal piped sweater!

Keep an eye on this vendor through Instagram.
You never know what might pop up!

BEST DRESSED

Knocked an item off of my July wish list!

Barbara Gerwit currently has a number of items on sale for the 4th of July.
This dress was originally $110.00 and was reduced to $44.00.
Because I signed up for their newsletter, I received an additional 15% off!
My end total with free shipping was only $37.40!

JULY WISH LIST

Custom Ring – My ring is in the works and here’s a sneak peek! I’m so excited and you can be sure I will be posting about it when it is finished. Hopefully I will have it back by the end of the month.img_4944

New Computer – This is still on hold. I’m going to wait a bit now that I am settling into new car payments.

Apple Watch – I’m having second thoughts about this again. I have heard people complain about the battery life. I may wait until the next version comes out to see what improvements they have made.

Persifor Dress – I would love a Persifor dress, but may settle for a fresh Barbara Gerwit. Both are very cool and comfortable for summer and excellent for travel.

Akola Necklace – These necklaces are popping up all over the place in boutiques. I love them and with so many colors to choose from, you can bet I’m having a hard time picking just one!

Polaroid – I would love to have an old Polaroid 600 Camera. I have always wanted one and just never pulled the trigger. They are harder to find now which is such a shame. I’ll be keeping my eye out for one for certain.
