If Only I Were Rich…


If you follow me on Twitter you know that I find stuff randomly all day and post things that I “NEED” to own. I have a window shopping habit and I’m okay with this. But with that habit comes really truly wanting to own some of these things I find. Some are pricey, some are a dream, and some seem impossible to get/find, but I guess that is what wish lists are made of.



Rebecca Minkoff Mini M.A.C. Crossbody: I love this bag so much. It is like the perfect length for a crossbody and sits on my hip perfectly. I wasn’t sold on the black hardware until I saw it in the store. I have my fingers crossed for it to show up for my birthday in August.

JCrew Cashmere Long Sleeve Tee-Shirt: I have wanted this for so so long. I love the color, I love that it is cashmere, I love that it is considered a “tee-shirt”. Basically I need it like yesterday.

Louis Vuitton Monogram Neverfull MM: You know how much I love my LV Speedy. I got that bag over a year and a half ago and have not purchased an every day bag (I have bought one clutch) since the Speedy came into my life.  But the Louis bug has now bitten and I have my eyes on this beauty. I mean look at it?? So perfect for travel.

Anna and the French Kiss (Indonesia): You’ve seen my collection. I have a fab gathering of foreign editions of my favorite book. This one is alluding me and I NEED IT!

Mac Book Air 11″ Herschel Case: I got a Mac Book last Christmas and I have been looking for a case/sleeve for it ever since. I’m obsessed with the color block combination of this one.

Alex and Ani Anchor Slider in gold: Currently I have 12 Alex and Ani bracelets. I have been looking for the perfect one to make it my favorite number 13 and I have found it. Love the look of this one. And if you know me you know my love of all things anchor. Yup, gotta have it.

JCrew Cashmere Hoodie: I have had my eye on a JCrew Cashmere hoodie for a few years now. Some day I will bit the bullet and buy one. Honestly I’m at the point that I don’t even care what color it is (as long as it is a color I can wear).

And there you have it. If I were rich I can promise you I would be shopping right now and buying everyone of these items. So tell me, what is currently on your wish list?

J Crew Stacked Flowers Necklace
I’m a necklace fanatic. If you follow me on Instagram you can see my love of all things statement necklace. I’m even a bigger fan of the J Crew ones (I know, you are all shocked by this!). Any way I recently came across this one on the blog Classic with a Twist and knew I needed to have it.

Dream Books Shelves
I was Googling book shelves and came across this picture. It had no other information attached to it so I can’t link it up, but it screamed something I would love to have. So thank you mystery picture.

J Crew Factory Outfit
I want this whole entire look! I love how effortless it looks and how put together casual it is. LOVE!

Friday’s Fancies #8

I seriously love going on vacation. Since 2005 I have gone to Cancun, Hawaii, Punta Cana, Bermuda , Aruba, and a bunch of other places. I love checking out a new place. Just I don’t love is the travel part of things. The airport lines, security, the waiting around. I basically despise it. And because of that hatred, being comfortable in both the airport and on the plane are high priority. And having all the things you need like headphones, an iPad/eReader, a book and a neck pillow are a must as well.


What’s your Travel Attire ABCers??  Comment and let me know!

Friday’s Fancies #6

It seems every season I find myself loving a certain color and imagining it with EVERYTHING. Well my friends, burgundy/oxblood is that color for this season. I seriously want it all. Everything I see that is burgundy I am immediately pairing it in my head with other items. It is one of those colors that goes with everything. Gray, black, brown, army green, navy, tan…yup, burgundy it is.


So I ask you ABCers, what is your current color crush?  Comment and let me know!

What’s in My Bag? – Andi

Well we have reached the end my friend. You have seen Heather, Brandy, Emma and Angie‘s bags and now it is my turn. Some of it you have seen in my other What’s In My Bag? post back when I first started the blog, but some is new. Without further ado, my things:

kors photo1)      Marc by Marc Jacobs Travel Wallet: This was a gift from my aunt last year for being in her wedding and I basically use it as my real wallet in the summer. It’s perfect because it is so slim and compact. (no longer available)

2)      Sharpie Pen & May Designs Monogram Planner: If it is anchors, I need it. And the pen is self-explanatory. I mean, it’s a Sharpie. What else do you need to know?!

3)      Prodigy by Marie Lu: My current book when I took this picture. I’m probably reading something else by now, but know I always have a book with me.

4)      Kate Spade Pencil Case: I got this a few years back and I use it for a lot of things, pencils not being one of them. Right now it is holding left over gift cards from XMAS. Yes, I still have money on some. HA (no longer available)

5)      Work ID, Library Card for the BPL, Lauren Mercier Pistachio Hand Cream: The hand cream smells so good it makes me hungry!

6)      Tory Burch prescription sunglasses, change purse, MAC Viva Glam II and Viva Glam III: My lipstick of choice. Viva Glam III with Viva Glam II over it. I get compliments every time I go to the MAC counter of how they work so well together.

7)      J Crew Anchor charger and Kate Spade card case: The Kate Spade case houses my bus pass and square coin from Aruba.

8)      Totes Umbrella with open and close button: As a commuter this is a must have in the purse.

9)      Keys: Work and home with my Swiss Army Knife and J Crew anchor and Tiffany’s star key chains. Can’t pick just one so I use them all.

10)   iPhone: Currently has a J Crew anchor case on it. I know, don’t look so surprised. 😉


Bag: Michael Kors Hamilton with Rose gold Hardware. Apparently hard to find or not made anymore according to the sales associate at the MK store.


And there you have it, the What’s In My Bag Series! I would like to give a special thanks to Heather, Brandy, Emma and Angie for helping out. If you liked this series let me know in the comments and I’ll do another one in the future. Monopoly Money Monday will be back next week.
