J.Crew Rainbow Sequins, Vintage Finds and Straw Hats

When someone says, "I decided to wear my hair in a top knot today", what that really means is "I am too lazy to do my hair today" least in my world anyway!

I love this hat so much! I have always loved Lola Hats, the baseball caps with the fur pompom on top but when I saw this straw hat with a ribbon attached, I had to have it! I'm not exactly sure why, I mean it kinda reminds me of a prairie girl with a bonnet but I still love it. The admiration for this item must be contagious since it is sold out and hard to find!

Vintage floral broaches and pins have always been a love of mine, they are so fun to add a little unique touch to any outfit. 

J.Crew sequins are always my weakness esp this rainbow, sequin maxi, I have waited a year for this one!!

A striped jumpsuit is a no-brainer and I had to jump on the embroidered sun hat bus too, only I could pay as much as these babies go for so I found a cheaper version on your welcome!

Looking for vintage additions to my home, is a constant search. I love the conversation some pieces get started and they just add more personality to a space, I think so anyway.

Sample sales are the best, esp J.Crew sample sales..

This oldie Marc Jacobs purse will be something i'll never part with, I just love it! What bags do you have that you will keep forever?

This colorful rug lives under my dining room table. The colors are so bright that it hides any spills or stains and the mixture of colors, make the room less drab. I love rugs and am always looking for vintage or vintage inspired rugs. Love them!

I love easy DIY projects and this is one I am working on, adding some removable tassels to revive these older shoes..well see how they turn out, stay tuned!

This vintage turquoise necklace was one of my mother's pieces and I never thought it would turn into one of my favorite necklaces. I still am finding some of her stuff that have been tucked away in boxes and this one was one I found recently. I'll have to say, it was a great find. 

And to end the day, this is a picture I took while standing on my back porch, the colors are breathtaking! I feel so lucky..

Aloette Restorative Enzyme Peel

I am a beauty product junkie, I love facial masks, eye treatments, face scrubs, you name it. I have tried a variety of brands and was recently introduced to Aloette, a company that uses organic, "good-for-you ingredients" that are also affordable!
I tried their Restorative Enzyme Peel, which after one application, I fell in love. The green, gel like product, when applied, made my dead skin cells kinda "ball up," where I then washed off with warm water and my face felt so soft and clean..fresh feeling! Even my daughter, who loves to try my facial products, liked it. She has very sensitive skin and often times, different facial products make her skin burn and irritated, but this product didn't bother her skin at all! 
So overall, I would give this product 4 stars and highly recommend!

This restorative enzyme peel is so gentle on my skin that I can use it several times a week with no irritation or redness or irritation on my skin. Now the real challenge will be keeping my daughter from using it all! I guess it's my fault since I let her test it out with me!
Thank you fro reading and if you've tried this before too, I would love to hear your thoughts!

Vintage Finds and Loves

Growing up, I used to love exploring my mother's quirky finds. Anything from hair accessories to vintage knick knacks. Now that I have a home of my own, I have some of her stuff still here and there, but have inherited her love for searching for those unique items to add to my home.

I love my GEEK glasses, I think I will always be a "geek" at heart..

I thought this floral headband was cute for the summer paired with a messy updo..

Vintage eyeglass holder, I don't use it much, (I tend to throw my glasses anywhere) but it's definitely a conversation piece. 

I love vintage trays and mercury glass. What I love about the mercury glass is the imperfections. The candle holders or vases I find, seem to add a little bling to a drab space and I also don't have to worry about mismatched metals with the silver and gold tones..

Summer flower pots are my favorite. I love multiple flower pots on my porch and patio. I find that it's cheaper and easier to just paint the Terra Cotta pots myself so that when they break or chip, I don't care as much, plus, I think the chips add to the character of the pots for more of that vintage vibe..

Cookie jars..I know I have said before, I have a weakness for cookie jars..

Thank you for reading!

Start of Spring

I have to say, I'm not ready for the warmer weather. I don't know about you, but going from jeans to shorts, only makes me realize I need to hit the gym more and quickly. A little tan would help too. Besides all that, here are a few things that I have been gym required.

I love finding cute, unique additions to add to my vintage finds.

Cute charm bracelet

DIY projects

Robin egg blue cabinet with my vintage stool

Pink and orange ruffles..this color combo always reminds me of a Popsicle.

Sequin clogs and statement rings

And to add to this list, I have been making daily trips to my local Dutch Bro's for their sugar free Rebel..peach raspberry to be exact..large. 

Thanks for reading and come say hello @RosalynKirkman
