It’s Election Day! We are out of school today – I think it’s a Kentucky state law that we must be out because they use many schools for polling places. Hopefully by the time you are reading this I have already voted!
My thoughtful sister sent me a Myra bag on the left. I have one that is a bit taller and slimmer and with mostly brown that I have talked about a few times. This one is gorgeous with some light green and cowhide and I love it. They are available at local boutiques and on Amazon. They are very budget friendly and made of all recycled materials. My sister said this was made from an old tent. I can speak to the quality. Check them out here!
My friend and sister- in- law Jessica gave me something I have wanted since summer but hesitated to buy – the Brumate slim can koozie on the right in rose gold(which I love!) – I think I thought it was too expensive for a drink holder. I had even already ordered a monogram for it from Heather! Check out Oh My Glitter designs for your monograms. Monogram it all, I say!
With some of the money I got, I finally got the Charlotte Tillbury Eyes to Mesmerize in Bette. This is like eye shadow for dummies because it shades it for you, in my opinion. I love that it is not a powder and is a creamy formula.
My sweet friend and faithful blog reader Jessica gave me these awesome Tanologist tanning drops. She said to put a drop in my moisturizer. I put 4 drops and was glowing the next day – in a good way. I had really wanted to try these and thought it was such a thoughtful gift and I don’t think I told her I wanted to try them.
My college bestie Heather gave me these cool earrings from Versona and…
This necklace with my boys’ birthdate in Roman numerals. I love it so much!
I told my husband not to get me anything but dinner out because of our renovation. My son in Europe is adding to my Starbuck’s city mugs collection and my musical theatre son learned a song in Spanish and sang it for me. I also received some money from my mom and in-laws and I am excited to add a few new fall pieces.
I feel utterly spoiled and blessed this year.
If you are starting your shopping list for the holidays, I think the necklace, the tanning drops, or the Myra bag would all make great gifts. I personally love receiving Yeti cups, Tervis Tumblers, and the like. Don’t forget about Etsy; they have such great stuff and you are helping a small business!
I am sure I will talk gift ideas several more times!
Thanks for reading,
