My Girl! Kate (Spade)

It's still January???  Dang!  Well I am going to keep talking about Spring anyway!  I have been a big fan of Kate Spade since college.  A classic black Kate Spade handbag was my first major purchase after getting a job after graduating college.  I like to think that Kate and I share the same style (just insert big earrings and funky shoes).  Kate Spade confirmed we do with this early spring collection!

Every outfit is just SO me!  I am already rocking the bun!  I am guessing that Brad Goreski is behind this styling!  Love the pops of yellow!!!
Just when I thought she had me down, I saw this bracelet!  "No Sleep Till Brooklyn" Bracelet!  I use this phrase all the time because I am always tired and I love me some Beastie Boys!  I must get this bangle!

What do you think of this collection?

Monday Mingle: Kids Party Outfit

Yesterday I took Peyton to Lexi's 3rd Birthday party.  Of course as a Mom, you have to wear something you can climb and jump in even if you don't plan on doing it... You will!

Mister didn't make it to the party but I meet up with him for dinner after.  He only gave me one shot to get a picture and this is it!  I am wearing a chevron top from Old Navy $5, F21 Skinny Jeans, Old Jessica Simpson boots. Pea coat is from Nordstroms, I purchased it about 3 years ago.  The bun is back!

Linking up with Momtrends for Monday Mingle!

Check out Peyton's outfit at the party HERE

Peyton's Weekend Style: Lexi's Birthday!

This Sunday Peyton and I headed to Monkey Joe's, a indoor play facility to celebrate my BFF little girl Lexi's 3rd Birthday!
Here is the birthday girl!  Happy Birthday Doll!


I got Peyton's cute outfit from TJ Maxx for $12.99.  I used my giftcard from the TJ Maxx New Year Party.  She is wearing black knee boots from JC Penny and headband from Nordstroms.

I love this picture!  Peyton trying to hang with the three year olds!  I wish I had more pictures but these kids were so focused on playing. 

The kids had a ball!  And Mama got a work out! Had to bribe Peyton out of one of the bouncy things with some chips!  Is it me or do these places smell funny?

Last week I shared with you some great deals I found at Target.  You know I had to go back!  I found even more clearance goodies!

Sesame Street hoodie for $4.  I think it's technically for boys but I will just put a big bow in Peyton's hair to jazz it up.
Picked up these velvet skirts for $1.50 each!!!  She can rock one now and save the other for next fall/winter.
I got these Circo pants for $2.50.  These are great for "play" clothes during the week.

Peyton just needs a few jeans since she had a major growth spurt and all her pants are flooding!  I am going to try and hold out on buying more clothes for Peyton until mid February.  Let's see if I make it!

Pre-Spring Nail Colors

It's not even February and Spring is everywhere!  I am trying to fight it but I am losing!  I was checking out Birch Box and saw that some people had a bottle of the new Zoya Feel Collection.  I love a great neutral color!  I went ahead and purchased the these two bottles. 
Zoya Feel Collection Carey (L) and Kendal (R).  They look close to the same color but one is grayish and the other pale lilac.  You know us ladies can notice if a polish is a shade different!
I just got my nails done so Peyton had to try out the colors.  My baby needs a mani!

I think the Carey color is going to be my fav!  What do you think of these colors?  Nail polish is so addictive!  It's almost like getting a new outfit!

Transition to Spring

I hate to say it but I am a getting a little excited for Spring!  It's already in the stores so you have no choice but to look!  I am trying my best to finish out this winter with out jumping the gun to spring.  I was on H & M and saw some cute little outfits that you can get now to transition into spring.

I know! This is cuteness overload!  A cotton one piece always works.  You can buy T's for the spring time just add a cardigan.
Light colored sweater look spring but will still keep the kids warm.
Add leggings to dresses to wear now.

Cute parka's are awesome. Light weight and will work until summer.
Hoodies are awesome for winter to spring transition.  Again, you can cover up light weight shirts and T's until its warm.  I have been buying up some hoodies for Peyton!

Have you started shopping for Spring?  What did you get?

December and January Birch Box

I am still a Birch Box fan!  I missed posting my December box.  I received my December box right around Christmas... Guess it was do to all the shipping for the holidays!

Check out the December box

kate spade new york Twirl Showstoppers® Designer Fashion Tape in Nude/Black
EBOOST Orange Natural Energy Booster
Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss
Benefit The POREfessional Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse® OR Multi-Usage Dry Oil Shimmer

From this box I am a fan of the Kate Spade Twirl!  Mister likes it too.  It has a sweet, light smell. 

I can't wait to try the POREfessional stuff.  It is supposed to minimize pores under you makeup.

Just got my January box

I was most excited about the Stila Eyeliner!  They sent a full size with a value of $20! It's a dark blue color.  It goes on soooo easy!  After 8 hours it did start to smudge and had me looking more tired looking.  Please excuse the browns!  Time for a threading!  

The Viva La Juicy is ... eeeehhh.  Not really feeling it.  I will give it another try.

Hopefully I will have some time this weekend to play with the other products.  Have you signed up for Birch Box?  If not, use this link to Birch Box so I can get credit towards a full size item : ) Thanks Dolls!

Shopaholic Steals: Target

Now is the time to hit up Target!  They have some amazing deals on clearance right now!  You can stock up for next fall/winter!
I told you about Peyton obsession with Elmo, so I had to get this shirt!  It was $4.50 and it comes with the cutes turban head band that she can wear with other outfits.

I picked up some Harajuku Mini corduroy skinny pants for $6.  I got them in a 4T, lets see if she can fit them this fall.
I grabbed this cute Harajuku Mini belt for $4.50

I went back to Target last night and picked up even more stuff. Stay tuned!

Have you purchased anything for next year to take advantage of the awesome deals?

$8000 Shoes!

While watching one of my reality shows, Love and Hip Hop, Rapper Jim Jones buys a new car and his fiance gets mad.  Then he points out that she just spent $6,000 on some shoes!!!!  Really???  I love some fly shoes, but what shoes are worth $6000?  That shoe would have to come with $5500 in the box!

So I was on a mission to find out what these uber expensive shoes looked like.  So while at Lenox mall I went in the store called Gregory's.  Beautiful shoes!  I discovered Italian designer Gianmarco Lorenzi.  I know I may be late but check them out...

Lorenzi Crystal Flower Platform $4295

Lorenzi Crystal Fringe Sandal $7995

Lorenzi Crystal Extended Platform, $2795

I think I saw Adrienne Maloof of RHOBH wearing these on the show.
Lorenzi Open Toe Platforms $2495

Combination of the beautiful shoe and the price had me light headed!  I don't think these were the shoes that Chrissy purchased for $6K.  I am going to need for them to have a 95% off sale so I can get some!  If you were a "Baller" what is the most you would pay for a shoe?

New Sneaks

It was time for Peyton to get some new gym shoes especially since she is going to school.  So Mister and I took Peyton to the Foot Locker to find some cute kicks.
Mister and I got in a heated debate about which shoe to get.  So I told him I would tweet it out and see what my followers say.....
It was unanimous that Peyton should have the Black and Pink Nike Air Max!  The ones I wanted her to have!  Thank you to my twitter followers for helping!  They were $46, but I had a $50 gift card! YAY!  I kind of want some for me self but they will only be worn to the gym!

What do you think of their choice? Are you on twitter? You should follow me! @babyshopa
