Recent Purchases...August

I know August is not quite finished yet, but I thought I would post some of my recent purchases so far.  As usual, I have a mixture of home decor and wardrobe additions that put a big smile on my face.  Drum roll please...

I have been stalking these shoes all summer, and then I found them on sale.  Score!  As you might know, I am a sucker for anything with a wedge (probably too much so).  I love how versatile and comfortable these are.  Perfect for work or weekend.

Our office is...a work in progress.  Yes, that is how we will refer to it, because the truth makes me want to cry.  You know that one room that you have in your house where all the crap that you don't know what to do with ends up?  Yep, that is our home office.  This is an attempt to add a little organization to my desk.  

A Wiser Workplace Desk Set

Yep, I jumped on the whole sparkly topcoat over  pretty nail polish bandwagon.  Love!

SEPHORA by OPI Flurry Up Top Coat

A second pair of Seychelles I scored at half price.  I really wanted a summery nude wedge, and these are just perfect.  I know, I know, enough with the wedges, Erin.

P.S.  They definitely look better on and in person.  Promise!

I had mentioned purchasing a bookcase I had been eyeing for a while now (and husband had to assemble).  Well, it is up, but far from complete.  It obviously needs books and decor, but for now, we'll call it a work in progress.

HEMNES Bookcase

I took a lunchtime trip to Anthro the other day, and I found these beautiful zinc letters.  I picked a G (for our last name), and knew immediately it would be one of the first additions to our new bookcase.  More to come...eventually.  You just can't rush these things.

Zinc Letters

I was in the city for work the other day, and there were a bunch of street vendors selling handmade hats with ears.  A bunch of us went downstairs and scooped them up.  I adore the colors and workmanship that went into this.  Husband isn't as thrilled:)  I am pretty confident that I can pull the eared hat off.

I am not sure if I have ever told you how much husband and I LOVE Halloween.  We are the people that go all out with fog machines and falling spiders and creepy sounds.  Sometimes, children only get halfway to our door and then decide to turn back.  We have a lot of fun during the holiday and add to our collection of decorations every year.  This is my latest find, and he is adorable.

Frankenstein & Candle

Which gives me an idea for a giveaway....coming soon.  I am not really sure how soon, but stay tuned.

Sparkly nail polish bandwagon is a darned good bandwagon to jump on.

I am glad to know I am not the only shoe stalker out there.
I am a silent hunter that stays up at night with only the light from the computer screen googling shoes away...
Last year i dressed up as SAMARA for Halloween, the kids almost cried when I dragged myself towards them wearing a white robe.... making noises.
Some ran and never came back for candy
But I am skipping it this year.
