Dreaming of Sparkles

As you can probably tell by my blog name, I absolutely adore sparkles! So it's only natural with the quickly approaching Holiday Season, that they are not only on my mind, but quite a few sparkly items have made my holiday wish list! Here are a few of my current fav's...

Factory Scattered Sequin Tank
 I was lucky enough to grab this beauty during an amazing JC Factory sale a couple weeks ago! Such a great price I wish I would have gotten the warm taupe too. So pretty under a blazer with trouser jeans!

Zara Sequin "wallet" that's more like a clutch ; )
DSW Alice Glitter Pump in Gold - Oh so lovely 
Marcia Moran Gold Druzy Studs
 I'm so in love with these earrings. I'm hoping they'll go on sale at some point! 

JCrew Gold Glitter iphone 4 Case
This is WAY high on my holiday wish list & if I don't get it I'm going to hurt someone be VERY disappointed! It may just need to be an early gift! 

Coming Soon.... more gift ideas & amazing finds! Enjoy your weekend!!!

Favorite {Healthy} Beauty Products

I've been thinking a lot about the beauty & personal care products that people use so I thought it was time to do my own personal spin of "What's in your medicine cabinet". I'm a huge believer in using natural products for everything down to my toothpaste! Why? Because your skin is your body's largest organ and it's like a sponge. It literally absorbs anything you put on it, including all the chemicals that might be hiding in your everyday favorites!

I'll step off my soapbox for now and save all that for another post! Here are some of my must-haves that are healthy to boot ;)

Weleda Citrus Deodorant
 This smells SO good! I sometimes need to mix it with another Aluminum-free deodorant, but it works great! They also have it in a pretty rose scent too. And you can it it at Target or your local Grocery stores health food section

Shea Terra Mint Marrakesh Black Soap 
 I cannot live without this stuff! I've been using it for over a year and it's awesome! I use it as a face wash and on my back & upper arms. Sometimes it can be a teeny bit drying at first, but it still works great and so refreshing!

Shea Moisture Coconut Hibiscus
 This stuff is inexpensive, works great and smells AMAZING!!! Smells just like Ambrosia (that fruit salad with coconut milk, mandarin oranges & marshmallows) OMG ... And even better? They sell it at Target!!! 

Pacifica Anything!
I adore Pacifica! The body butter is lovely & I own several of the solid perfumes, which I can't get enough of. One of my fav's that just happens to be on sale in a gift set right now is Mediterranean Fig (shown above). It's earthy, fruity & just plain sexy. But not for everyone I'm sure.... which is ok because there are so many great scents to choose from!

I plan on reviewing and introducing additional products every week! What are some of your favorite good-for-you products? I would love to try some new ones!

Latest Anthro Loves

Like SO many other bloggers I am a major Anthro lover, have been for years! I know the clothes are overpriced, but there's just something about the designs, fabrics, colors etc. They just... get it right. I'm a sucker for drapey blouses and collars and I love the basic tee but it needs to have that little extra something that Anthro so willingly dishes out! Quite a few things have been added to my ongoing Anthro lust list. I went to the store last night to see if I could try any on, but I was kind of disappointed to see that a lot of the new pieces aren't available in my local store yet. I would have loved to try the coat most of all as I've read mixed reviews about it. So without further ado....

Tartan Boucle Blazer
I have seen this blazer in person and it's stunning! I would love to snag this if it goes on sale at some point!

Superfine Cowlneck
This is another that was in-store. Very pretty!
Runway Lapel Coat in Navy
It was lust at first sight when I saw this coat online a couple weeks ago. Alas, after two trips to Anthro, it's still not available in my closest store. Some people love it, others not so much. I may just need to order it to try it out!

Shawl-Collar Boatneck
This reminds me of a fancy sweatshirt, which I love! Sadly I could not try it on. Love the Turquoise as well! What made your Anthro lust list? Have you tried any of my favorites? I would love to hear your throughts!
